Man, its been raining for days here and coming down by the bucket load here since yesterday. I have rivers running in the front and back of my house; so what to do?

Well since I can't do anything else I got the ammo factory up in full swing! Going to finish up 500 rounds of 6.5x55 and a couple hundred .308 that I have prepped and ready to load.

    I always have sewing to do, or other inside projects. Goof off on the Internet. Or just enjoy a good book!

    I always try to use days like this as a catch up on what I am behind on for inside work.

    Read a book? Man I haven't had time to do that in years!

    I'm here, "wasting" time. Actually, the sun just came out, but, it's rained all night and morning.

    I see you have both a powder throw and an electronic measure. Which do you use most?

    I have my old beam scales, powder throw, druggy scales and a Lyman 1200. I have pretty much retired all but the Lyman.

    I really like the throw when using flake or ball powders but stick powders don't measure well in the throw so I use the electronic scale for that.

    It rained like that here once. That was about 15 years ago. I don't remember what I did.

    Was that back when you could own real guns? :devil:

    I have a baggie of balloons from the local party supply store for days like that. I roll one onto the muzzle of my .30-06 and go hunting. It's the bright sunlight that keeps me inside.

    Ummmmm those aren't balloons. :nono: :tooth:

    I go to the indoors range when the weather is like that.

    I go outside anyway. If I didn't, I'd almost never get outside.
