Looks like some snow shoveling is in my future, and then some shoveling of snow.
Bottled 10 gallons of wild grape and 5 gallons of concord. Then shoveled snow.
Been shoveling the wonderful *#@&% snow for the last week. @Boatboy24 reminded me of all my used bottles waiting for a lazy afternoon. Spent the time removing labels and wondering why I put the expensive ones on the bottles I was only going to drink. Looked nice at the time, but removing them all made me break the calculator out. I have switched to self-printed labels since these.
Awaiting a visit from a contractor.
Last night, our dear youngest child started an 'experiment' in the hall bathroom upstairs. He turned on the water in the sink, with the stopper closed and proceeded to walk down the hall to grab something out of his room. It was at that time, he forgot about the running water. Several minutes later, he emerged and heard 'rain'. He ran down to the living room, then remembering he'd left the water running. Big old brown stain on the living room ceiling and probably a bunch of water damage under the bathroom floor.
I love my kids, I love my kids, I love my kids...
Maybe one (or two strategically located) of those battery operated water sensors that sit on the floor?
I'm getting close to covering the floors with 'em.
I think your floor will dry and be fine. At worse you may have to remove and replace a part of the ceiling depending on how much water actually got on it. Recommend resealing around the toilet and base to the floor tile. Tell Brian he owes you several punch downs and non stop cranking of the C/D. Oh wait, that's not punishment to him.
Don't be too hasty, trust me, kids come back home.
I was laughing earlier today thinking this is the same kid that was 'driving' your lift around your warehouse.
Mrs IB gets her wish for a full snow day!
On the weekend I made some beef jerky, a pork shoulder, and then pork rinds from the skin I trimmed from the shoulder.
This weekend I plan on making sausage for the first time.
Took the day off so I didn't have to drive in this stuff, looks like they predicted correctly, for once, so I'll have to start shoveling the wifey a spot after lunch. Supposed to turn to sleet later this afternoon. At this point it's really coming down, maybe four or five inches so far on the ground. Guess I forgot to bring in the Weber kettle, oh well. At least it's supposed to approach 60 by Sunday and melt all this s@#t. Planning to make sauce this afternoon and cook up some chicken parm for dinner. Oh, and maybe drink a beer or three.
Mike, tell Mrs IB to stop wishing for snow days!
LOL Yea not a good week around here for any outdoor grillin'. We ended up officially with 14" from this storm and we now have a 2nd storm aiming for us sometime Friday.......
I put the grill up on the porch and do fine. We shouldn't approach your 14", I hope. Get her to wish for bratwurst to fall from the sky or something normal.
LOL She throughly enjoyed her Snow day off (with pay) yesterday as well as the day off (with pay) on Monday (presidents day) and the day off (with pay) on Friday (9/80 work schedule) .....
Wednesday (today) is her scheduled day to "work from home" so 6 days without having to actually go into work, not too shabby.....
Nice when a plan works! My wife had to go in today. I half-heartedly said I'd drive her in, but at 5 am it hadn't started yet. She took clothes so she could stay at her Mom's place if it gets too bad tonight. Just slowed down here a bit, I measured and we have 6" so far. 7" was supposed to be the upper end, so I hope they were right. I'm taking a pre-shoveling break with a Warsteiner Dunkel to build up my strength a bit (just isn't working very well on the resolve part).
Edit: oh, this is lunch...tastes so good! Much better than the St Pauli Girl I had for breakfast.

Umm, you 'kay, Craig?
We arrived in Cottonwood 2:30am Monday morning driving in through a winter storm advisory, not too bad really but.... starting tonight we're expecting a very serious, for cottonwood anyway, storm. We're in our new rental but the moving truck has still not shown up and with the storm approaching I expect we'll be sleeping on blow-up beds again tonight, eating from paper plates and doing our best to make it like a camping trip or sleepover. I bought a couple of cheap pans and some preseasoned chicken and beef, frozen stuffed potatoes, canned chili, canned soup and sandwich stuff, lots of cocoa mix and powdered coffee and of course plenty of beer and wine stacked up and ready to consume. We do have one small TV and direct TV just installed the dish but said it'll go out once the storm hits. My understanding is that this amount of snow is very rare here so we'll just sit back and enjoy it. Will take some before and after pics to share tomorrow, let the storm begin!
Looks like a nice place to tough out the big storm of 2019! LOL
I wish my basement had that much floor space open...
