    There was no way I could afford the pedal version, they are pretty spendy but the paddling works just fine for me. Great looking kayak Digger.

    Turning the corner?

    Highs should mostly be above freezing for the foreseeable future. Fingers crossed.

    Rolled in @ 2AM a mere 15 hours after we set off. Roads were beautiful aside from dealing with non-driving idiots in Wisconsin. A stream of profanity punctuated by "cheeseheads" often passed my lips as I traveled the length of the state. Illinois traffic cleared nicely, though it is a rather fragrant state for some reason. I wanted to do the TN decent during the day, for obvious reasons.
    We plan on landing the rental early tomorrow morning. Shouldn't be too much of an issue.

    Oof, settle down! Resident cheese head right here :rofl: To be fair, I have my SCCA pro-am license. But we can all agree that Illinois drivers are the worst!

    Warming up to be a balmy 28f today. Heat wave!

    What a difference a day makes! Sunny and 57°/13.8°, clear driveway and mostly clear street. All told, we had 9” of snow on the ground, the most in 40 years or so.

    Don't like them FIBS eh? LOL

    Take a tool down I294 any day of the week and it's like NASCAR @ 80 mph even in near bumper to bumper traffic. I'm glad I don't have to cope with that. Denver is bad enough some days.

    Geez, just after 7 AM and we're already above freezing. High is forecast to be 58F and sunny all day so it'll feel more like 70F.

    I dunno man those chuckle****s on 53 were a source of much consternation. Charge up behind a guy, pass (or I'd move over) and then SLOW DOWN!?
    That said, they have NOTHING on Atlanta drivers. They're even worse than the lane jockeying meth heads on the decent from TN! I narrowly avoided 4 different accidents in Atlanta, and I was staying in the HOV lane!

    We went smack down the middle of the state through windmill territory. Granted, we were blasting through at night but the drivers weren't all that bad. Set the cruise at 80 and go. We did have one guy rack up his truck on a concrete divider in a lane shunt construction zone, but that was about it. Managed to dodge that and proceed without much incident.
    :hmm: I wasn't even wearing my Vikings or UMD (Minnesota Duluth) shirts at the time. The plates on the rental were all schmoo'd up so that's out (Virginia anyway)... must have been the beard.

    At any rate, we're back and I'm in quarantine. Furthest I'm going is the McDonald's drive thru in a couple days, maybe curbside at the hardware store for some project paint.

    Oh and of course, the "nice" weather hits as soon as we leave. Near record cold for the majority of the trip, but now they're out in sweatshirts . :facepalm:

    We went out for a drive today on roads that would have been impassable three days ago. It was glorious to get out and feel the sun.

    Pretty warm, so back to normal.

    Grass and shrubbery in my yard is pretty much dead after a > 24 hour period of below freezing. First time in 30 years down here a freeze has lasted longer than a few overnight hours.

    It was a beautiful afternoon yesterday, the sun came out & there was some warmth in it too :dude: Got lots of seeds sown & went Skip dipping again :thumb: The house across the back was having a new roof & extension built so the skip was full of very good clean timber so I nabbed some lengths of 3x2's & lots of 2x1 slate batten, I spent the afternoon de-nailing them in the sunshine :yesway:

    Real dreary day today with light rain & a high of 11C.

    Just past 7 AM and it's 37F headed for a high of 57F under sunny skies. Another day of reprieve before we're back in the teens and the 30Fs under gloomy snow laden skies.....ugh. :frown:
