    I stopped in my lgs last night and I asked him about a stripped lower, he usually has some Anderson and then work up in price from there. He didn't have any Anderson and said they were on backorder, he ordered 10 Aero and they shipped 2. I don't know if this is a blip or another shortage in the making. Time will tell.

    Probably another shortage in the making. HR8 passed the house, and two more worse ones are coming up for a vote. I suspect it's time for ordering things that get in short supply, again.

    Scare people about anything & watch prices jump . Saw people buy ammo. for guns they didn't own so they could mark it up when the shortage happens .

    Took about an hour. Snow was up over the top of the auger intake in spots, just in time. 




    Help from troll #3. 1994 called while I was up there, it wants it's Columbia Bugaboo jacket back.

    Someone broke into my shed. About a year ago heavy winds took out portions of my fence. Ain't gonna fix it any time soon. Someone pulled up in the street, went up to shed and broke the clasp. Something scared em' off and they didnt take anything. Either that or my old mower, weed wacker, and assorted junk aint worth steeling. I fixed the lock, but it won't stop anyone with a hammer. Guess I'll find out if they really want my junk.

    I’m really trying to be positive after getting 40+ inches of snow in the last 5 weeks so this is the only thing I can come up with.  I don’t have to bend over to get my beer while shoveling

    I guess we should all look on the bright things in life. Which reminds me of a song.

    I can't imagine that much snow. Keeps the beer cold though.

    I bet there was a very interesting story to go with those Zorba . Hope you can find out what it was .

    Read about that one. Can't remember the exact story and whether it was WWI or WWII. Anyway, a British soldier got hit by a nearly spent bullet from a Mauser, and it hit a clip of cartridges on his belt. That was the result.

    It happened when I was just outside a little town called Bastogne in late 1944...

    ... and if you believe that...

    No, the picture came from another forum, the guy had purchased this clip at a gun show. Somebody was REAL lucky!

    I'm renovating my bathroom at the moment and happened to watch a U.S home improvement show while having dinner.
    I noticed you guys don't seem to use nogs/dwangs in your framing, when you hang plasterboard do you just fix vertically or do you also fix horizontally? we normally use a noggin line as a join as horizontal fixing is favoured here or meet halfway on a stud if going vertical.

    What in tarnation is a nog or dwang?

    If that's what they are, I hate them. Makes running a wire from the attic or crawl space a PITA to add a receptacle later on down the road.

    I call them a cross brace. 😁

    I call them a fire block, as that was what I was told they were for (by a fireman). Yea, they're a PITA but fortunately not seen all that often here in the US.

    Our blizzard has been upgraded to a disaster here. Im glad I stayed home.🌀❄⛄
  • kansashunterkansashunter Senior Member Posts: 1,411 Senior Member
    Early you can keep that. It's supposed to blow in here tomorrow, not a blizzard but a cold front with 70mph wind gusts. It is in the 60's today with 40mph south winds, tomorrow in the 30's. Weird weather.
  • earlyagainearlyagain Posts: 3,282 Senior Member
    It was warm here yesterday just like there today.

    Better keepp an eye on the calfs out there tomorrow. This storm ain't bluffin'.

    That sounds like what it's supposed to do here. Severe weather forecasted from 10 to midnight tonight if it's on time.

    And it hits us here where I live tomorrow night. It was 70 deg. today. Supposed to get colder Thursday night and Friday. Ma Nature is going through menopause with these hot and cold flashes, and all that wind mess.
