Good Morning DieselRam...
Everybody remember to reset yer clock?!?

52 & overcast this morning, rain since about 5 yesterday off and on but not heavy.
Moved a little dirt with the box blade so puddles aren't as deep as last time.
This might be the high for today..

Visited an equipment auction yesterday where they were selling forestry dozers....
And, they brought twice what I was hoping.
Oh well, nice day of window shopping. Always fun to go "test everything out"!

Sunny and warm today...babysitting the granddaughter today, were always up to that. The search is on again for a newer truck, looking for about a 2005-2007 with the 5.9. Lots of beaten up junk out there, mostly from Alberta, heavy frame rust, body rust, etc. A place I do snow removal for has a mint 1998 xtra cab dually 4x4 he bought from California. It has 50,000 miles on it. Its loaded, it has a custom 400 litre fuel tank(105 us gal) and just had the tranny rebuilt, and the engine was rebuilt by Cummins, because it had a Banks turbo on it and the compressor wheel nut came off somehow and destroyed the engine. This truck is pristine, and he asked me if I wanted to buy it. Too big and cumbersome for plowing, but very tempting. Its a quadcab, but the rear doors don't open that year.

Temperatures slowly on the upward climb. Sunny and got into the upper 30s yesterday.May have fixed the electrical problem on the 92. Got down to the mid teens last night and frost. Got conflicting weather reports for today. One says sunny and warm again, the other says up to 3" of snow. Either is possible depending on which way the storm tracks. May do some Craig's list shopping today.

Rainy 50's today with some idle talk about snow tonight.
After church, I did a couple chores for Mom then met some friends of my late Dad....had a nice visit. White beans, stuffed peppers, spinich and some of my famous/infamous jalapeno & onion cornbread was supper.
Having a relaxing evening now.

Light snow, maybe 1/4".....no dump truckin' today so I bought a hood latch for the KW, bought 8 tomato plants then I sterlized some potting soil and used it to re-pot those plants and some I'd started from seed. After that I burned some limbs & cardboard....just kinda goofed off.
