    I got 5 HO car kits yesterday and about that number of ready built and am having fun today.

    Beats going out in this snow weather.

    I was over at the LHS today. They were having a 50% off sale on some items they had already marked down several weeks ago. I picked up 3 accurail boxcar kits for $3 each, and I got a RTR Intermountain boxcar for $9 and a couple of RTR Intermountain covered hoppers for $11. Even though I didn't need these, I just couldn't pass up the bargain.

    And the weather down here in Houston has been nasty for the last 2 weeks, temps in the 30s and rainy, dreary, gloomy, gray, depressing, and we aren't used to that kind of weather for 14 days in a row.

    None of my kits were more than $4.00 except on for $6.

    My trusty HP calculator informs me that is 7.78 degrees furryheight. :eek: Which is waaaay too cold. Must be why most of your compatriats are lazying on the beaches soaking up the sun down here. :p

    -20 C this morning. The sound of my truck starting up on the first try is music to my ears.
    Especially at 5 am.
