Rain/freezing rain starting here now.

Recommended Posts

I got some gas for the genny and have a few flashlights ready with some new batteries. About all I can do if things get ugly here. How is everyone else making out? Hopefully it somehow skirts by us. Good luck everyone. :bc:

Pretty still/calm out right now but its a mix of rain/freezing rain. Suppose to get ugly shortly they say? High winds and nothing but freezing rain but we'll see?

Just east,The interchange will be where the old Larrys Tavern usetobe.The old hwy will be used for a service rd. So you well have to pull off the hwy to go to the Store.  Did you know that Moose Lake Trading post is no longer. Windfarm people bought it as they needed the land for a transmission corridor.

That sucks about Moose Lake. Stopped in there a few times. For the most part the prices were reasonable and they did have some quality items. I bought a real decent leather hat there that is my go-to lid for bush work.

I was working on the airplane today and started around 8 this morning, it was raining. I finished at 4:30 and poked my head out only to see the truck was covered in 3” of ice and snow. Beauty drive home.  I booked my pool opening Thursday for May 15.....hopefully this shit stops before then

Had to go fer a rip.  Normally 6" on pavement is horrid on a bike, but there was an initial ice layer under the snow that gave me good steering.  April 14 and riding out of the garage, kinda nuts.
