Hi Bill;

Seems as though you would be much better off just staying home.

Hang in there Bill.

The odds down in Texas for good weather are on your side…LOL.

We in Chicago keep getting reminded of what “Character Building Weather” means….

Then how do you explain why so many of your politicians are in prison? :D

I spent the first 30 years of my life in Michigan. Great state, but I would rather live someplace where most of the people who want a job, have a job. Personally, I’m retired but life is still better in places where the economy is vibrant.

You’re welcome to come to New Jersey, but we’re expecting two feet by morning.
And so far we’re good but reports have power outages throughout the area.
If power goes, no shop, no cooking, no nuthin’.

Now where is that bottle of scotch?

You can always look forward to it melting away…. I’m in Michigan and had to install a heater this winter for my shop so that I could play, I mean do woodworking in these snowy winter months!
