Please forgive my lack of enthusiasm, I had a bad night.
Low 20s and clearing. The storm passed us, but there is another coming in this evening.

Merry New Year!
Currently 18F.
Was up too late partying at the kids. Shot off some fireworks, one of which exploded, scaring everybody 'cept me, I thought it was cool. Left at 2am, stopped by the truck shop and re-started the fire in the wood stove to keep the pipes from freezing.. Got to bed at 4am finishing off with a can of natty light. A pretty good start.
I'll start the KW and the old Western Star in a little while so maybe they'll start in the morning if we work.

Shovelled half the garage roof off, did some more snowblowing, replaced a brake line on the Dodge.....hard to do with numb fingers. Beautiful sunny day though, full moon tonight, shimmering off the snow drifts.

Sunny teens this morning, currently 22F.
No dumptruckin' today, too cold for the construction crews out in this weather so mostly goofed off then took a nap a coupla hours ago. Not likely to do anything exciting this evening either. Tomorrow is looking like the same too.
Can anyone tell me which jet fuel is straight kerosene, suitable for a kerosene heater?

Good morning DR, 15* and overcast, quite the warm up from what was -4* yesterday. Meh.....30ish later. Lady friend is to come eat lunch with me today.....be a nice change of pace Early B200 in for a Phase 3 & 4.....tired old girl that needs a new dress. Clunk, all the jet engine fuels I know of have additives to prevent gelling in extreme cold temps. Having said that we burn Jet A in a Salamander.....but the hanger is rather drafty too. I would use the right stuff in an enclosed area.

GOODMORNINGDIESELRAM....Pondering options. May be selling the 1st gen, however there's only a 99% chance that will happen.
