November mornings
Good morning DR, downright windy and serious band of rain drenching the Mississippi Valley. Sixty three now....probably the high for the day.

smokediver 11-01-2018 06:36 AM

Good morning diesel RAM. The heavy line came through about 6 a.m. along with severe warnings. No damage that I've seen in our area so far. Moderate rain now. Truck thermometer says 61 like jfj said probably the high for the day. Looks like a day to nap cook and watch TV. Y'all be safe.

cougar 11-01-2018 08:38 AM

Well, we hit zero. Actually a little below. We went from way above average to way below.

Clunk 11-01-2018 06:47 PM

Rainy 60's today.
Hauled stinky sludge to the big dump in the rain, there was no other work due to the rain.
Will probably haul more tomorrow. As long as I can stay in the truck, I'm ok with it.
Because the KW has the small C13, it doesn't get stuck easily. The engine is much lighter than the ISX's and C15's.
There was a large Cat service truck there and the wrench was working on a late model D9. He was looking at something on his laptop.

Good morning DR, Friday and PayDay…..the candy bar....I get one a couple times a year. After the bank run, lunch and wind up the week.....KnoxVegas tomorrow...not sure this is gonna fly, she is a planner and a neatnoid. Talk about polar opposites.....I have a floor jack in the living room. :eek: :D

smokediver 11-02-2018 07:19 AM

Good morning DR!!
Truck overhead said 44 at 7 a.m. overcast and moderately Breezy. Last work day it won't be dark at 5 p.m. till about christmas. Really messes with the logistics of shed hauling.
1.5" of wet stuff at home, but I'm gonna go 100 mi South & give it a try.

Gotta get a radiator on order.
Trying to decide if the all aluminum "performance" model is worth an extra $100... :dunno:
Clunk, I expect you're like me, it just dont seem right to need a laptop to work on a giant Tonka toy! :rolleyes:

cougar 11-02-2018 12:18 PM

-2 and clear. Still plenty of snow to go around. I'm board. Not much I can do though.

jetfueljockey 11-03-2018 03:41 AM

Good morning DR, 33* and clear.....58* later today. Warming trend of a sorts for me, heading south for the weekend. Family in from Ohio, getting up with them first thing. Coffee is ready, y'all come on up.

cougar 11-03-2018 08:40 AM

Some clouds came in and warmed us up a little to14. Clouds are moving out and the temperature is already dropping.
I was so board I rearranged my sock drawer.

smokediver 11-03-2018 10:08 AM

Good Morning DR..
Saw 39 about daylight, I think 68 is the rumor for later.
Took a family day. Going to watch Ralph play in regional band competition.
Lunch with family planned tomorrow for Dad's 72nd.
Chilly nights deer are moving.

Clunk 11-03-2018 05:06 PM

Sunny 60's today. No hauling today so I went to the race head shop to do the intake ports on a pair of 396 Chevy SS/D race heads...I have until near spring to finish them.
Chili with gumbo vegetables is pretty good.

cougar 11-04-2018 09:56 AM

Back down to zero, a lot warmer out at the house.

Clunk 11-04-2018 08:14 PM

Rainy 60's today.
After Church, I started work repairing the air dam, plastic bumper & grill of my 92 Olds Bravada.
This is kinda difficult because parts are bent and difficult to make fit, not to mention dark since the time change.

jetfueljockey 11-05-2018 05:01 AM

Good Monday Morning DR, Visited with family yesterday, nephew wanted to go on a scooter ride. So I took him, grinned like a Jacka$$ eatin sawbriars when he took off his helmet. BBQ joint in Somerset is an average at best chain....gotta get brother down to SweetPea's.

cougar 11-05-2018 09:27 AM

-2 at the tin can, 25 out at the house.

Dusted off one of my electronic projects and started on it, again.

Clunk 11-05-2018 08:55 PM

Partly sunny near 70F this afternoon.
Hauled stinky sludge to the big dump then worked on the Bravada this evening.
Felt real tired and a little woozy so I checked my blood sugar....gotta 81 which is the lowest ever for me. Had a glass of sweet tea and feeling better now.

jetfueljockey 11-06-2018 05:14 AM

Good morning DR, front passed through, lots of wind and rain. Cooling trend too.....somebody said snow next week :eek:

cougar 11-06-2018 10:28 AM

They keep flashing that "S" word around here too. Guess they are trying to get the boat people to leave.
-2 again. Tried to stay awake for the aura, but no luck. My soft warm bed won out.

Clunk 11-06-2018 07:06 PM

Sunny 60's today.
Started lubing the KW then hauled some gravel then finished lubing the KW.

smokediver 11-06-2018 07:37 PM

Good Evening DieselRAM!!!
The tornado was pretty close, bout 50 mi north, but no damage around here. I slept thru it all.
70 today, 60 tomorrow, 50 next day they say. 30 or below saturday night has been mentioned.
FD today, threats of rain tomorrow, so check the radar and see if I dare venture off..
Chili with gumbo vegetables.....:rolleyes:

jetfueljockey 11-07-2018 05:01 AM

Good morning DR, low 40's to mid 50's and overcast. Feels like fall out....Some of smokes weather in west TN, missed us on this end of the state.....windy just a bit is all we got.

cougar 11-07-2018 09:55 AM

Mid 20's today with a chance of rain or snow.

smokediver 11-07-2018 06:26 PM

Good Evening DR...
Yep, rain, 1 inch by lunch & mid 50's all day.
After it stopped I filled feeders & checked cameras, pulled tube out a the atv tire with a stick poked in it...no patches. :(
Assembled my new tree stand.
Had some swamp SOUP & cornbread during the news & waiting for survivor.

The little lady decided bout a month ago she wanted a job for her own Christmas money... so she's back as a CNA 4 days a week, 3-11.

Clunk 11-07-2018 07:06 PM

Cloudy near 60 with a quick little spitter shower then it quit.
Hauled gravel then a special mulch for retention ponds the rest of the day.

jetfueljockey 11-08-2018 04:59 AM

Good morning DR, brisk start to a cool day, 39* now and 50ish later. Snowbirding beginning to sound really good.

cougar 11-08-2018 10:13 AM

smokediver 11-08-2018 04:55 PM

Rain earlier then just cloudy & a few spits.

Hauled more special mulch then cleaned out the bed because I'm supposed to haul asphalt tomorrow.

smokediver 11-09-2018 07:15 AM

Good Morning DieselRam!!
Rain, rain, and RAIN!!!
Still 54 this morning but that's supposed to change from today on.
Picked all the peppers last night cause rumor is the freeze is coming.

Ralph's coming this weekend.
Looks like good weather for deer hunting!! :D

cougar 11-09-2018 09:21 AM

28 and climbing. Still a chance of rain or snow. A big storm is headed our way, but very warm so rain only.

jetfueljockey 11-10-2018 05:20 AM

Good morning DR, internet outage yesterday and severe water leak behind the house....rain and mud holes in the back yard. No fun this week. But it could be worse. Twenty nine degrees now and a balmy 40* later. Plan for the day is drink coffee, get parts for water line repair, bank and bacon bar. fix water line and shower. Long day...good thing I got up early to procrastinate for a bit :rolleyes:

Clunk 11-10-2018 08:27 PM

Sunny cool 40's after 2's this morning.
No trucking so slept late then went to the race head shop to hang out then did a little work on the SS/D heads.

jetfueljockey 11-11-2018 06:02 AM

Good morning DR, chilly start to a John Prine morning....yesterday's plan was derailed by a water leak at the meter the water company fixed.....I am back in business and they promised to fix it right Tuesday. Long hot shower and the Mexican joint last night....pretty good way to end the day.

cougar 11-11-2018 09:16 AM

Freezing rain, a pretty bad way to start the day. Hope everything thaws out before the wife has to drive me into town tomorrow morning.

Clunk 11-11-2018 08:11 PM

Sunny 50's today. After Church, I did a little home winterizing then took a nap....not much more than goofing off.
Will probably hafta haul stinky sludge tomorrow unless it warms enough to haul asphalt.

jetfueljockey 11-12-2018 05:04 AM

Good morning DR, sporadic rain and low 40's all day.....Monday and Yardstore order should be here.....Scrap metal tools reasonable. Coffee is ready, y'all come on up.....

cougar 11-12-2018 08:47 AM

47 and rain. Most of our snow is gone. Off to town to get my stitches removed.

smokediver 11-12-2018 05:47 PM

Good Evening DR...
Rain, rain, rain...again...Pretty much all day.
49 overnight and low 50's all day.
Supposed to be drier tomorrow and falling temps. 30's and 40's in the foreseable future and could be more rain for Wednesday.
Looks like we'll have winter this year!
All deliveries are postponed. Tentatively try a couple close by on Wed...if it's not raining.
Wish I had a shop to work in..

Me & Ralph patched the 4 wheeler tire, filled the feeders, checked the cameras, & sat in the new stand till dark, but they came later.
Checked over his car a little, fried some deer steaks and watched a movie.

Now, what to do tomorrow...

Clunk 11-12-2018 07:18 PM

Rainy 40's today and no truckin', went to the race shop and worked on the SS/D heads.

jetfueljockey 11-13-2018 05:03 AM

Good morning DR, 41* and rain....falling temps today....should put on a sweat shirt under the hoodie. Guess winter has set in.....
