Ok, nothing special at all here except a very happy daughter. “Daddy I need drum sticks.”

Hmmmm… Dowel, Saw, sandpaper, Crayons (yep crayons, she is still decorating them).



One very happy daughter. Considering we are mainly stuck here for a bit that is a good thing.
This is what my deck looked like as of 12 noon…

For all of you that are also stuck for a bit, hope you have some rewarding time in the shop. Enjoy All.

You have a great friend for the rest of your life.

I take it you won’t be BBQing on the deck this afternoon.

Thanks GAry, My parents are in Jersey in it as well. They did not get hit as hard as me in Virginia but pretty hard none the less. The official airport total here (which is actually pretty close to me) is just over 30 inches… Sheesh!!

I’ve got the snow and also no power. We were out from 3AM to 8:30AM and 10:30 AM to 4:30 PM

I was cooking bread and chicken on the BBQ. When I brought everything inside, the power came back on.

But, nice Drum Sticks.
