    Happy birthday to "Mrs youngtanker" bday1

    Godd morning everyone! -18, todays high should be around -5, no wind. Should break into the + side tomorrow.

    Spring can't come soon enough. Going to order track and switches today. I would have liked to buy from a hobby shop but at 1/2 the price I have to go online.

    Have a great day!

    Wow it took three hours to get the house back into the mid 60’s. I’m not sure how far below zero we are (I didn’t have my glasses on when I look at the thermometer) but the wind has wiped up 6 foot drifts in the drive way.

    A coal furnace is great it is either so hot that you need all the windows and doors open or it gets cold enough that you need a jacket. :) Can you tell I sleep in. ;)

    As I was getting the coal furnace up to speed this morning my thoughts drifted to the old steamers running in the winter. I wonder if the engineer froze his backside off on days like this?

    [FONT=&quot]I could stay home and just run trains today. Well I have to get to work then come home and take care of the cattle so I guess the trains will have to wait till later.[/FONT]
