Well y'all went and did it. Over 5,000 posts in January. Heck in 2008 there was only 5,103 posts for the whole year. I'm pretty sure that we will have more than that by the time tomorrow is over.

It was 64 here earlier but we are down to 54 now. Tomorrow the high is going to be 20. Straight line winds damaged 34 houses in one neighborhood here last night. They thought it was a tornado at first but the weather office said no.

I am jealous. I wish it would snow 3 feet deep here.

That time again, I get to go to work. Wednesdays used to be fairly slow, but the last few weeks have been way to busy for only one person to be on. That means it will be a very long and tiring night for me.

Hope you all have a great night at the Pines!!

It was 64 degrees here today and overcast. A cold front is just starting to push thru Baltimore now, triggering thunderstorms. Can you believe it, thunderstorm in January. Tomorrow, the high is supposed to be 30 degrees; Wow, now that's a temperature swing for you....

I spent all morning watching a plumber re-pipe my grandfathers boiler, it quit working friday night because the system/ hot water piping, sprung a leak in the expansion tank and had no water pressure. Upon my further inspection, I found a couple more leaks, caused by the pressure reducing valve that had failed and with the uncontrollable water pressure, the old pipes and equipment could not handle it and it was blowing the system apart.

Well, I spent all morning there making sure everything got done properly and was tested as well. It's all fixed now and he's up and running just in time before the temperatures dip back down in the 30's tomorrow. Me. I'm back at the office now and will stay late tonight to try to make up my time so that I do not have to use up my vacation time... So Ill be here for awhile tonight!!!
