wow upto 24 inches... like those flashlight batteries that last up to 10 years-- got to look for the upto factor. latest i heard was boston 0 to 2 inches... well that is certainly upto 24... so maybe we get a chance to look and watch washing ton struggle with what we would consider nearly normal... a big snowstorm..
i can remember...... when you did not know these things..."red sky at night, sailors delight" kind of weather forcasting.... you never knew if it was a snow squall or a blizzard in the making.. the common thought was yiu'd look to the sky.... if the flakes were very small it was a blizzard..and only time would tell the difference.
------if this storm swings north at all we are going to be in worse shape than normal - because the owners of all the big trucks have headed to Washington because washington has money and no snow plow equipment to deal.....which may leave us with a few trucks to roar around and then the local backhoe's---- not alot bigger than ours... get hired to do the corners and hydrants.
at any rate... the party is on...if you are worried.. bring sleeping bags-- that training room "dorm" can hold UPTO 10 friendly people-- and the loft in the guest house has thee best bed on th e property. there are lots of places here to stay warm and dry...
GARBALOGY-- THE BOOK I GOT AT MAIL CALL -
i just started it ---- garbage is a huge project... hidden but huge.
44% of all trucks on the road haul trash/garbage...
it has some very interesting observations... like the thing in the bubble wrap
will break and be disolved long before th e bubble wrap that contained it.
toys-- that spin the bottle toy is successful--- i never thought they would get it because the treats are so randomly dispensed ... unlike the yuppy where if you hit it right , you get a treat.
now they bat away at it - and when the get tired, they just sit and chew on the wood.
meeting about the building went as well as can be expected...alot depends on this storm.... if we get 24 inches. the surveyers could not locate the pin points necessary to lay out the buildings already here... he thought they couold do that nesxt week if there was not 24 inches of snow.
so the debate is then swamp cabbage--- which indicates "wetlands" -- behind the chicken coop is definitely wetlands---we must be 100' from wet lands.... there is room-- but the building might get closer to the barn...
i suppose where the dumpster is could work too.
hammacher schlemmer-- a respectable outfit-- stuff they sell is guarenteed-- i get their cataloge....so i had to buy... a thing to jump start your car-- the size of my cell phone????? goes in the glove compartment????
i don't believe it. rechargeaboe--... holds it's charge up to... ( got that up to) 3 years without use.
pretty careful wording- but i had to try it.
akc notice on---xylitol- BEING DEADLY TO DOGS-- A COMMON SWEETNER FOUND IN THINGS LIKE PEANUT BUTTER... GOT TO LOOK AROUND-- WORSE THAN CHOCOLATE FOR DOGS.
NUMBER THINGS.... THIS LEAD BIT IN THE WATER-- DR. SANJA GUPTA- ON CNN SAID THE LEAD 5 PPM ( PARTS PER MILLION) WAS OF CONCERN... AND THE READING ON THIS WATER WERE 14,000 PPM.
I AM SURE HIS STATISTIC IS CORRECT... I HAVE TO RELATE THAT MY GENERATION GREW UP CHEWING ON LEAD PAINTED TOYS AND PLAYING WITH THE MERCURY IN THERMOMETERS-
THAT COULD EXPLAIN ALOT...
