    It didn't hit to hard here yesterday Mike . Was actually nice working with the temps around 50 & light rain . More rain all day today but still nice temps . Flooding is starting so that will make a mess for a lot of people in the low areas .

    Rain for today and tomorrow is going to make for some 'interesting' situations around here. The dams on the TN River are still dumping excess water, and the ground is supersaturated everywhere. Flooding has been ongoing for weeks in low lying areas because the rivers and creeks just can't drain the amount of rain water we're experiencing.

    Glad you didn't get the brunt of that low pressure area and the nasty winds!

    We could use a bit of that rain down here to wash the excessive pollen outta the air...

    We average 58 inches of rain a year here, but the best part is that we average 0 inches of snow! Like my wife says, we're a soggy sponge floating on/in pond scum!

    Average annual rainfall here is 57 inches, but I think this year is gonna bust that average like a champagne glass dropped from a second story balcony onto a concrete walkway. :D
    2018 was the wettest year on record for Chattanooga area with 67.01 inches of rainfall/precipitation since records have been kept. That's a LOT of wet stuff.

    As long as it isn't snow I am good with the wet . Now we are back to cold & wind again .

    Looks good come Monday for finally getting in my shop. Gonna take the new heater up there and do a little metal cutting with bandsaw, and make the one jig I need to make my cap 'n' ball single shot pistols.

    Bet you will be happy to get in the shop to play a bit Mike . Those old ones really look neat . To much work for hunting with but really fun to kill time with . I tried to buy some etching ink at the store yesterday & the kid had no idea what I was looking for . I hate when they bug you asking if they can help you & then just waste your time because they don't know what the store even sells . Usually I just say no thank you ..... I am just here to hide from the police .
    If things go right today Mike I may have a new addition to the gun pile ....... film at 11 .

    What is this etching ink of which you speak? Is it Dykem steel blue layout fluid? Or are you doing lithographs and need etching ink? You got me curious!
    New gun is good. Hope it's a shooter. Maybe that Colt .22 pistol? :smiley:

    Layout fluid . I call a lot of things by the wrong names ...... then wonder why it doesn't work !  lol
    I really would like to see the gun guy show up & need tools too ! That would perk up a cold Sunday . I do like to swap & trade . I know guys on here that don't like messing with that but I do & have fun doing it .
  • tennmiketennmike Senior Member Posts: 25,727 Senior Member
    You threw me a curve ball there. Sometimes one calls stuff by a different name, but when ya get on the same page, it's all good!
    That would be sweet if you could trade tools to the gun guy for a gun. Bartering and 'horse trading' can be a lot of fun, too!

    You had it right off the bat Mike !
    I didn't say anything so as not to jinx it . I now have the Colt that I talked about & he has some tools & money . Worked for both of us . Not a bad little gun .

    NICE! And you get a hearty "YOU SUCK", too! :D  That's a very desirable little SA .22! Hope it shoots like a champ!

    Thanks Mike .
    Now to find some stag grips & set aside for summer plinking .
    I think I am in it right so if I ever sell it I won't get hurt . Might pick up a .22 mag . cylinder for it so it is complete .
  • tennmiketennmike Senior Member Posts: 25,727 Senior Member
    If you can find the .22 WMR cylinder that would be really sweet! Best buy some .22 LR and .22 WMR ammo just in case while it's available, though. I see another ammo shortage rearing its ugly haidbone with what the Democratic Socialists are trying to push through in Congress. Better safe than sorry!
