Good (Friday) morning. Overnight Low of 5.0C, it's currently calm and clear and the temperature has risen to 14.6C. There was 3.0mm of rain in the gauge @ 0900.
Just a few 'puttering' things to do today. I do need to fill the ute's windscreen washing fluid in preparation for tomorrow and the round trip to Devonport for a meeting. So, with a late return + Church on Sunday, I won't be hopping on TBN 'til later.
Interesting photos of the Grange Fair. This coming Thursday I'll be attending AGFEST here in Tassie... a very dangerous time regarding my wallet = so many things that I never knew that I needed.
John Deere 160 (1988), Arctic Cat 400 ATV (2006), Kubota BX23S (2018), Jacobsen Super Chief 1450 (1969), Cub Cadet RZT S50 zero turn mower (2012) pending
TXDon - chickens is "pigs with feathers" or "modern day dinosaurs" , they'll eat almost anything
Popgadget - love the bi-plane
LS - correct. she will struugle with that for a bit yet, I'm sure. I think we need photos of the Jeep (perhaps I missed them)
got back from Kamloops about an hour ago ... picked up a few small things - bucket, rodent traps, vehicle stickers, details for my John Deere seat / support, had lunch, it was a hot day (37 C) but we managed.
RoyJ - glad that things are looking good, temporary discomfort
sodamo and others - thanks for the thoughts and prayers for my friend (her initials are JW)
thomas - glad for the rain
daugen - love the tractor photos, that's the kinda place that can entertain me for hourb
buckeye - we moved to the acreage in the country, I thought that our animal loving kids would be naturals for 4H, but they all were gifted and competetive athletes... I don't do well around ice / snow, but I spent 11 years at the ice rink, probably 15 yrs at the gym, soccer fields, ball diamonds - I miss those years now. great photos - what Dam is that ?
Good evening all. 73ºF for the start, overcast, light breeze and trace in rain gauge. Intermittent light rain in the morning less than .1 inch in gauge. Light wind mostly cloudy afternoon, high temp was 84ºF, HI 90ºF. Puttered waiting for rain to stop in morning, bike ride in afternoon, nap and fish club meeting in evening. Rain still in forecast starting Sunday, now have 2 days less than 80ºF for high.
Randy(wag) Sorry about the rain messing with the march. Good to hear water tanks are full.
Scardy glad chicks taken care of. Good luck with the maggot farming and bear prevention. Hope you had fun today.
Buppies hope rain helps your yard.
Roy hoping you get a good soaker, and Dr visit goes well,
Bird got almost .1 inch today.
Scaredy understand about wanting your life back. Glad to to see light at end of tunnel of getting wife home. Hard to argue with God about his timing.
Drew have fun at fair.
Don got some rain here, serious rain starting Sunday. I am betting Canadians do not claim to eat maggots
Kyle sorry about your heat, hope you get some rain.
RNG sorry about no rain, glad your temps dropped. hope you can get the mounting mast fabbed and ready to mount cam and panel.
Ken nice bench and pic
Paul good to hear biplane about ready to fly. Hope grandson has fun at the fair.
Drew have fun with your old gravely.
Scaredy not surprised at second guessing, is a serious decision.
Ted nice temps, hope get a nice soaker. Serious rain in forecast for next week for me and possibly Bird. Good cardio news, maybe more motivation. nice you got heater core unplugged, if you open radiator cap while engine running and cold, you should not see coolant moving. I would expect overheating from bad water pump.
Drew have fun and meet lots of old friends.
Ken hope you can make the fair.
