16 degrees out and I'm getting ready for spring
« on: January 14, 2009, 02:47:34 PM »
Today has a high of 16 out and work got messed up so I had some down time at home. I decided to use this unexpected break to make bee stuff for spring. Did I mention I don't have an indoor shop? It was pretty cold but I managed to make 2 bottoms, 5 supers and 3 top tele. covers before my hands decided to stop working. Winter  :roll:........

I can appreciate the shop thing.  Mine is a bit drafty at present, older building.  New 30 X 40 a few feet away, waiting on spring weather and the concrete.   Indeed winter is a bummer, luckily we have had some decent days to do a little bit.

Supposed to be -4 tonight...go figure

Apparently we are getting some of that weather down here.  Below zero again tonight.  A change in the jet stream sure sends a surprise every once in awhile.
