Snow/Ice and generally a wintery mix of slush is supposed to hit us starting after midnight tonight. Forecast to continue into Saturday. Forecast range is 2" to 11" of snow. But it is the ice that I don't want to see too much of.

Currently have the pick up parked in the driveway. A bunch of Christmas decor is sitting in bins inside the garage, along with other misc seasonal stuff. The morning plan is to clear enough room so I can get the truck in the garage. That will be the morning project.

Afternoon is a special fencing practice at the high school, normally we don't fence on Wednesday at the school. Evening is regular fencing practice at the fencing club.

Starting the runs on the new "NO ANTIBIOTICS EVER" today. Same labels as before but different art and end use. I need to write protocols to prove how we keep them separate from the standard labels.

I hate writing rules on how we do common things with common sense just to satisfy the regulators.

Yesterday evening at the Avoca, Iowa city council meeting, I was approved to be on the Planning And Zoning Board. I don't know what my duties are but one of the city council members asked me to be on it. I told the council I will do the best I can for the betterment of the city.

Today there is lite snow and it's supposed to snow for the next 48 hours or so but I'm going to the gym anyway and then staying home.....maybe.....depends how bored I get.

I can't say that yesterday was the best experience ever at work.
Mr. Stern was back in the house, I wasn't feeling well, all the noise from drills and the work crew, call lights, phones ringing, nobody happy-- stress!
Finally around 8pm things settled down, then we get a call off at which time I was asked if I could possibly stay until 2am.
Are you fcking kidding me?
That's exactly what I said.
No.
Tomorrow cannot come soon enough.

Came home to my condo on the east side of he state Monday evening.
Smoke detector is chirping. I'm thinking why, because IO change them twice a year at time change.
I keep spare batteries, so I pop another one in - and the thing starts screaming. Ok, maybe a bad battery. Get another one, screaming. Find the beaker, kill it. Go to take the battery out and get a drip of water. Huh?
Water heater is right above it.
Yup, dripping. Fortunately, no ruined drywall, but an old installation so no drip pan.
Tuesday morning - cold shower. Lovely.
I have no tools here other than a hammer, screwdrivers, etc.
So I stop at Home Depot on the way home, they will install Wednesday.
Cold shower Wednesday morning. Ouch.
Guy is here now.
I'll have a hot shower in the am. Yeah.

My grandson takes one hour showers. We have a 60 gallon electric. He stays under the damn thing until it runs cold.

Brought the truck in to drop off the tailgate to get repaired. 3 nice sized parking lot dents. Some people have zero respect for other vehicles.

Went to the gym where I dragged my a$$ for an hour. Legs aren't working well today. Extreme temperature changes and dampness don't agree with me.

Chiropractor appointment after the gym. Now home for the day not doing much of anything but resting.

Off to the border this morning to pick up a few packages. I ordered a set of rear brake rotors for the truck as well as a couple things for the snowmobile. As soon as I get back, it's out to the garage to start putting it back together.

I've been up sneezing and coughing since 6am.
Nothing planned today except rest and hopefully I'll make myself a nice supper this evening.

Yesterday was a better day at work.
The rabbi was in from Toledo blessing the facility on it's million dollar renovation and walking around speaking to us with Jacob, our owner.
That was kinda cool.

Getting ready to cross the insane state line and drive to the Illinois high school where I am volunteering as a fencing coach. Got to beat kids with steel rods. We have another tournament this weekend.

We've got a very light snow here, changing to a wintery mix of rain/snow. Roads should be wet on my way to practice but if the temps drop it might be a bit slick on the way home??? Mostly rural driving so I don't count on the snow plows and salt trucks.

Sonny boy took Jinx on a tow run.
Apparently this woman had just stopped to pump gas, pulled out, was driving down the road and the back window spontaneously exploded?
She said nothing hit it, it just broke!
Temp change or a small hairline crack up until now undetected could have been the cause.
Yikes.

She's lucky. I had that happen to a windshield. It didn't explode but shatter cracked whilst driving at about 40 MPH in traffic.

Spent the day out in the garage teaching the neighbors a few new swear words while working on the snowmobile. I changed the track but to so that I had to remove the rear suspension, exhaust, battery, and gut the chain case in order to remove the front drive axle. And while putting it back together last week, I over tightened a nut on a stud that's cast into the chaincase for the chain tensioner and snapped the stud off. So instead of trying to drill out the stud and install a new one, I found a used chaincase on ebay for cheap. That meant totally removing it to install the new one.

It felt like I was doing a fancy waltz out there. One step forward three steps back two sideways. I had already reinstalled the new track and drive axle but had to remove it again to take the old chaincase out. The replacement one is now installed and the axle and track are back in. Tomorrow a buddy is coming over to help reinstall the suspension and finish putting it back together under the hood. She'll be a lot better in the deep powder once I'm done.

I may have told this one before.

Back when I was a young buck, had a Ford party van. E150 if I recall.
Took a chick out. Somehow a bee got into the van and she's going nuts. It's a freakin bee and wants out, but she's going nuts.

So the thing gets down in the corner where the windshield meets the dash.
I pulled a comb out of my back pocket to kill the damn thing and shut her up. Shoved that comb down there - the windshield exploded.
She walked home.

Worked out in the garage again today on the snowmobile. A buddy of mine brought his over too and we worked on both together. He helped me reinstall the suspension in mine. Then we both installed handlebar risers on both sleds. Mine isn't ready to ride yet though as I have to finish reassembling the chaincase and exhaust.

The oldest boy turned 16 this week. So he has a few friends sleeping over.
