Good morning!
We have a winter storm warning for tonight in to tomorrow. High winds, rain then turning to snow. The reports keep changing, last I heard we will get 4 to 8 inches maybe more. Additional snow Thursday in to Friday. I am going to run to the supermarket for a few things, in case I don't want to go out over the next couple of days. I hope everyone has a great day!

I would def. recommend an AR.
I have owned one for a few years and there isn't a better gun to shoot. I have about 6 or 7 friends and we get together and target practice all the time. We haven't as much lately because of the ammo situation, but we will soon.
yes, that's really the one I want to get. I've just started looking at them and I was kinda overwhelmed by all the options that are avialable to purchase as well; (sights, optics, stocks, etc...). Do you have any recommendations or does anyone else have any recommendations from personal experiences?

You can PM me if you wish about the/ any details but I am really interested and eventually would like to get a couple of them. Thanks!

Good morning!!!! Heading to work, then I'm heading to the Pines. I have one more week after this one until Spring Break and I'm starting to get an itch. I can't wait.

Supposed to warm up here today with the highs in the mid 60's and sunshine. Hopefully, all of the cold weather is gone for the year. I'm ready for warmer weather to get here so we can get it over and get back to Christmas!

Good Morning.

Yes, I'm taking a break from All the Alliterative Allusions.
(.....or, maybe not....)

Regardless, there's never a break from the ever-moving and declining count:
Days to the Season: 252
Days to Christmas Day: 294
SINGLE DIGITS, Guys.
(To the 1/3 Season Milestone, that is.)
Wow.
The year is just rolling past like old man river.

Not only was it cold yesterday, it rained most of the day.
Continued chilly weather is predicted for today, then the long-coveted warming trend should commence, capped by a pretty nice weekend.
(I can't wait!)
We are at 38 degrees here, currently.

Well, Folks. It's 'Pines Day once again.
First open house of March.
What will this week's theme be?
One must go to know.
In any case, you know it will be fun with Carl in charge.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday, Everyone!

Good Morning MMC !


I'm up, I think, must be because I am sitting here typing.

Congrats on getting the DSL at home! It has become indispensable at out house.

I'll be there in a few minutes for my snow cream. (I wish!!)

Good Wednesday morning, my Christmas friends!

I'm not feeling 100% today. I might see if the doctor can see me today. I'm sure it's nothing, but it won't hurt to get checked out, eh?

I just got confirmation of my position in the parade this weekend. City of Bellville is slot #13...my lucky number!

I hope y'all have a great day!

Hooray for your DSL!

The day off tomorrow sounds ideal. Gee, I miss snow days! These days, if snow or ice keeps me off the road, I have to check in with the office by email and work from home.

You weather junkie, you!

We're expecting snow here overnight, tomorrow, and tomorrow night. They're having a hard time predicting the amount, but so far they're saying 4 to 8 inches, with AccuWeather predicting a little higher. So I can start worrying about driving tomorrow ...
