« Part 25: I'm a Lumber Jock and I'm OK..................... Part 26 of Another day, another nickle series Part 27: Home again, home again, sorta!!!! »

Just thought I’d take a minute and say,” MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR ” to all my old friends here at Lumber Jocks. It’s been a strange year for Carleen and I but we are sure glad to be in Southern California instead of where all that winter is. I’m sure all this rain will soon be over and we will be back to the sunshine for which this part of the world is famous. I wish I could spend some time in my shop and build a little something but such is not the case. Some day….......................... ? For now, I’m eating fresh oranges off the tree and waiting for the sun to come out. Happy holidays everyone.

Just got woke up at 4:30 with a flood going through the garage. Had to get everything up out of the water. Slacked off some for the moment but more on the way.

Yes it has been a bit wet over here around LAX, but I don’t have water running though my garage. Over the weekend I wanted to cut some wood, but that means rolling the saw outside – that wasn’t going to happen. I contented myself with doing some design work in Sketchup.

We hope you get your sunshine back soon.

One thing about where we live, we’re only about 3 miles away from the

Three Way Continental Divide, when we get heavy rains it ends up in the

Hudson Bay, Lake Superior, or the Mississippi.

It doesn’t hang around very long.

We do get our share of rain sleet, or snow though.

It’s kind of hard to figure, that not one drop of water enters Minnesota, except from the sky.
