Its time to get the next project started. I’ve waited long enough to get the lumber. I ventured out to my favorite lumber company about 15 miles from me to pick up about 45 board ft of QS white oak and a 4X8 sheet of QS white oak plywood. Its only 8 degrees here and I knew the lumber company barns are unheated. Just about froze my you know what picking it out and getting it graded for pricing. After I got home I had to haul it about 75 ft around the back of the house in knee deep snow into my shop. Boy, was I cold. Went and hit the hot shower to warm up. Ready to rumble though…glad that haul is over. :-)

Tomorrow should be a little colder, then sunday will warm up to 18 or so. But what are you building? And where did you get the lumber, YB’s?

Funny thing here in Canada this time of the year we should be way way below 0 and it is above.
Day before yesterday we had the same temperature has Florida, nothing is normal anymore.

With those differences you know why it is now referred to as “Climate Change” and not “Global Warming” LOL

Most of Atlanta (GA) (all the schools, some of the courts, some of the businesses) closed down with 1/2” of snowy ice or icy snow.

Very true. Yesterday at 8:00 AM it was 22 degrees F here in Gainesville Florida. At that same time, our area in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, 1400 miles North, was at 23.

I have to say however that by mid afternoon the temperature in Gainesville had risen to almost 60, whereas the U.P. stayed pretty close to 23 all day long.

With near record breaking low temperatures day after day, the small 1500 watt ceramic electric heater in my garage has been struggling to keep the temperature at 60 degrees. I’m waiting for more normal temperatures so I can get back into the shop and work.

A half inch of snow in Atlanta is almost like the arrival of the anti-Christ. You should see the bumper car fiasco when it only rains. Our problem the last couple of days has been the ice. Lows of 15F and highs of 24F degrees is not normal here and all the idiots go out and drive in it anyway. I prefer to sit at home with a fire going and watch the drama on TV. I knew it was coming, so I went to the lumber yard to get enough wood to keep me busy all weekend and stopped at the grocery store for all the essentials. I’m good for the next few days.
