Up to this point, we've been on borrowed time, weather-wise!  ;D

It'll be nice to see the gain in daylight hours.  8)

I've got to get busy getting my mill aligned for the Spring-Fall sawing season.  :P

It shouldn't take long to get ready to saw again.   :)

For us Ohio boys it has been a real easy fall/winter.  Lots of rain about less than a 1/4" of snow this season for most of Ohio.   lake shore got hit last week some but still nothing like normal.

just hauled in my 80gal IR compressor into the shop brand new from TSC so now have to get it hooked up and bolted down need to find a good regulator and some plumbing parts to make it up.  also bought a sandblast booth and need to get that assembled and in the shop.   the compressor is nice looking so happy though I was hopping for less$ outlay.

I'm looking for help all the shrinks have given up on me :o

I never take notice of the daylight change until mid February. That's when I open one eye, and roll over in bed for another couple months. :D
