    I have been having to making frequent trips to the hospital recently and I bought a box of them a couple weeks ago from Walgreens to use when going over there. They had some on the shelf then but maybe I was lucky to find them.

    Way ahead of that. I have boxes of N95 masks for just such an occasion as a "novel" Coronavirus outbreak, or shooting primer. I have dust masks for when those run out and we go to actual emergency reserve status. Or if I'm just sanding some nasty old paint. And I have the 3M throw away respirators that come in resealable packages for if things go critical. Or you know, if I'm shooting the shiny stuff and attempting to keep the cyanide at bay.

    I also keep several air cleaner filters on-hand for my car just in case, well, you know, in case there's a naturally occurring "air quality" issue that would effect them as I fly down the back roads away from it. But I'm not worried. As Louis Pasteur said, Chance favors the prepared mind.

    No virus could survive outdoors today. Got all the way up to 4 degrees with a -20 to -30 windchill. Dropping to -15 to -20 tonight with windchill as cold as -40. Unimpressed is the only word I can think of right now.

    The only good part is that this afternoon at work I started to feel almost totally normal again. Must be something, it's 9pm and I'm still awake, lol!

    This morning when I left for work at 6:45 it was -22 and down at work, 12 miles south, it was -31. About half way to work, the TC clutch disengaged in my Dakota and a few seconds later it shifted out of O/D. Below a fluid temp of -5, TCC and O/D are disabled. Since it was about 35 in the garage it was fine for a while, then the fluid temp must have dropped below -5, which is opposite of what you'd think while driving. Never came back. It was fine on the way home though. Cold didn't even begin to describe how it felt out there. Must be that global warming thing again, lol.

    After 2 mornings of -20 to -25 lows with highs of barely zero, the 30's tomorrow and (hopefully) 40, or a little above, this weekend are going to feel AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

    UGH !!!!!


    No Thanks! It's mid 30's during the day here and I'm just not feeling it. Hiding in the basement playing with little cars instead.
    Finally chose a color for my old 40 Ford rebuilder today.

    As with every winter, about this time it's got everyone just plain worn down. White, white, white, everything is white, except the trees which are bare and brown. I believe it's called cabin fever. Other than clear snow seemingly every other day, there's not much else you can do outside because it's too friggin' cold and,,,,,,,,,,,,everything is covered in 2 feet of that white crap. Gee, I really can't wait until I can complain and whine it's too hot out, LOL! Can't do anything in the basement because,,,,,,,,,,,,my house is slab on grade like most others in a large portion of Rib Mountain due to the rock. I don't mean rocks, I mean ROCK as in you run into a floor 3 or 4 feet down. A basement calls for blasting which is $$$$$$$$$ so, no basements. If (and hopefully when) I move to a different house it WILL be one with a basement (and away from a freeway).

    Really what I can't wait for is that first ride of the season in the Aspen.

    March Madness in Ohio's weather. Last Thursday was high 20's with gusting wind making a slick mess of 4" of snow. That continued thru Friday. I actually put a coat on. Pretty sick of winter. But it started warming a little each day til yesterday was mid 50's all day. That means wet too around here. Pretty much same thing again today. Probly be snowing again by the weekend. Lol!

    It was sunny, no wind and upper 40's on Sunday here (melt, melt, melt!). Today maybe 30 with a 15-25 mph COLD NW wind. Got so used to driving to and from work on dry, clear roads the past couple weeks and then this morning...............It was only about an inch of snow but it was like driving on grease. Just like so many times before, drive to work going 40 mph tops on the straights and 20 on the curves. Reminded me of one reason (of many) I don't like snow, especially when it's that type.
