    Got the second Moderna covid shot today.. sort of a non-event. No other customers in the pharmacy. I thought it might be busier.. even brought a folding chair for the wife. They had 10 chairs this time.. all empty. OK, so that's over, I hope.:D
    We went shopping after, spent a little real folding money in an actual store, felt goood.:thumbsup:

    Good choice! Our Honda is a 28" cut, fits into places a bigger machine would not which is a plus for us. I have an Ariens mower, 2 years old at this point, solid machine with only 1 or 2 questionable engineering decisions. Hopefully you don't find any of those on your blower.

    You will like the Ariens snow blower. It is a good machine. Be sure you lower the shoes on the front to get closer to the ground. At the lowest level you will have approx. 1/2" left which isn't too bad. Have fun with your new play toy.

    I love wasting time semi-constructively! Chore list done, so it's :cheers: time.
    Almost emptied one of my crates, and some dealer frames didn't make the cut after saving them for years!

    More to go, but a great rainy day project, always more cleaning and sorting to do....

    And this just in, got an email when I came in - Austin Public Health sent me my appointment for 4:00 PM tomorrow, in mid-Austin. Won't love the wait, or the traffic, but I'm going. My option is to not show up, and they will let me know when I can try again. I'll take the hassle over the suspense!

    WOW!

    WOW!

    The grid is regulated by market price. And, yes- non-profit mostly means you are not taxed. And the Public Utilities Commission (appointees) regulates a few things, among others, a max price per kWHr (which they allowed at 1000X the pre-storm price). And, the 5 members of ERCOT that don't even live in TX (not actually required) resigned today. Among them, Chair and Co-Chair (elected week before the storm!).

    Good morning everyone!

    We got another 3 to 4" of wet snow yesterday - finally stopped snowing about 3PM. I shoveled and plowed and by then the temps were in the upper 30s so it had started to melt...slush and another round of heart-attack snow. Now it's 22F and icy. Luckily, the sun will be out and temps will be in the 40s so it will melt and dry out most of the driveway. Come on Spring!

    Second Covid shot tomorrow for us.

    Stay safe and warm!

    Good luck with that. We're approaching fifteen years on our second heat pump, which is about where the first one checked out. Original HVAC company still in business, so that's a plus.
    Wow.. hard to belive it's been thirty years since we built the place. Long hours, long drives, 7 days a week, for several months. Only way we could afford it back then was to do it ourselves.. and we're still together, haha.

    ...and vaccinated. :thumbsup:

    Good morning all,

    Snow in the forecast, not supposed to start until tonight - spoiler alert - IT IS SNOWING now.

    Col, thanks for the info. I will look into Weil-McClain systems and see if they are available out here. The real challenge is finding someone that actually knows what they are doing. I was leaning towards the Bosch system as they also supply the installer for warranty reasons. It is a wall mount with more zone options which we will need as I finish the basement and add a mud-room entrance. Just waiting for things go calm down and building materials to drop - way too high right now and that is with Alice's discount at the yard.

    Lots of ice after two days of high 30's here then teens at night - melt and freeze, melt and freeze - all adds up to 'Slip Sliding Away'.

    Have a great day Hump Day for those still working...

    Good Morning

    We got about 2” of widow-maker snow last night but it’s settled to about an inch already. Does that make it lighter? LOL
    Got a problem on the truck to sort out. It keeps blowing the blinker/daytime running filament in the bulb on the drivers side but the marker filament in the bulb works fine. Put in two new bulbs and it’s blown both.

    Have a good day

    Finally just went over to one of the county vaccination sites - total run-around through the phone numbers they listed. One turned out to be billing department of a local hospital! DUH Last week's missed days - due to weather delay of deliveries - were rescheduled for the same date and time - in March. Except they didn't notify all the participants by email as advertised.

    So today - they were flush with extra vaccine due to the stuff from last week being caught up - and not a lot of people in line. Serum has to be used up in regulation time, so they simply pointed me at the line and said go now. So one down and one to go - according to the paper I got, one month from today / same time same place. They should have just let the Army do it........
