  • As some of you know, I have wanted to stop managing H-M for some time. It's a tremendous strain on my personal life. I want to set up my own shop. In September, September 15, to be exact, it will be 8 years that Hobby-Machinist has been in existence.

    I have been training VTCNC to run things here. Dabbler is going to learn too. I feel that they are ready to start taking over the operation. I will be here to help in case they need, but I don't think they will. Tony Wells is and will be here also to consult with. I will be doing backups, upgrades, and installing addons. Other than that, I will not be around. I am leaving this place in good operating condition, and financial condition.

I have 40" on the ground, so I don't feel too bad for you. Not looking forward to mud season.

We got close to 2 ft. last weekend, nearly all melted by yesterday. Snowing heavily now and forecast to continue into the weekend. WP_20180314_11_47_49_Pro[1].jpg

We've been pretty quiet here since that foot or so that we got a week ago. Looking forward to it being gone. 40° here today with plenty of sunshine, it's going fast.

Looks like snow in your area for another week, or more. Been wanting to get over to Reno, I live in Redding, but that will have to wait until the roads are clear.

I was actually surprised to see snowflakes drifting around in the air during the last storm. Of course nothing stuck.

I can drive up the mountains just a few miles away if I want to play in the white stuff. It's all gone now, and the trees are budding like crazy. Spring's here! :)

Came home from Thailand a week ago to bare deck and clear front yard. Yay!
Deck now has 2 1/2 feet on it. Got to love spring in the Maritimes!

Billy G... I assume you meant "much less than predicted" but "tan" works too...

it feels like winter in spring. These nor easters have been hitting us over and over, but they are gone quickly. I miss the snow of my childhood, when we have regular dumpings, and most years the snow stayed for a long period. We've probably had about 30 inches total this year. maybe a little more. 8 inches at a time.

It snowed here this morning, just enough to see on the ground. Pretty unusual for this time of year. Went away pretty fast, but we did tie a record low high temperature for the day, 46° F. Should be in the low 60's

Damn Guys, why do you put up with that stuff? The older I get the further South I want to go. Life is so much better without snow.

not to me. I like it. There are a lot of things you can enjoy in snow. Also sometimes its a good excuse to be in the shop. :)
