Post dated 2-10-15, predicted a week or so for something to start happening. This morning the low temperature at Norfolk International Airport was 18, 1 degree above the all time record low for this day 3-7. It's my brothers 59th birthday, so we got together with Mon and Pop for lunch. He is going to do some more welding this Thursday or Friday and I plan on doing some mocking up and prep for his 4-5 hours of welding.

The snow has finally melted and should finish melting by tomorrow when it is supposed to hit 60 degrees. The ground has been covered by snow for 20 days now, which is pretty rare here.

I'll get some photos up as soon is something worth photographing. Predicting a week a month ago brought on the 3rd coldest February on record, with the single day lowest high temperature record being broken by 8 degrees.

So much for predictions. At least the work to this point has faded somewhat in my memory, might help a bit with future inspiration. I need to get the title process started.

Mech,

Can't wait to see some more progress on your project

I feel very lucky this year in the NW. We have had a very mild winter but we will be paying for it this fall I'm sure with no snow run off.

Could be a bad fire year for us.

We saw temps in the Sourthern portion of the NorthEast staying below zero for days at a time, as low as -20 ambient and then some...

Meanwhile, North Dakota had a nice, mild 50* winter most of the time, according to my company's founding station. They hardly worked out there because it was so warm so often, while we were getting swamped with more work than we could handle.

Interesting. A woman in North Dakota sent me a Happy Xistday flirt and, feeling bored, I asked if she wanted to marry.

Gentlemen, I am engaged.

Sure.

I cut some strips out of the left over pieces of road sign I used for the flooors, Brother #3 is going to do some more welding, probably Friday, if I can get enough prepped for him to do to justify the 50 mile trip.

I'm not sure what part of the state your company is in but where I live and work we had the same old miserable winter.

They're based in Williston. The 50* thing was a bit of an exaggeration, but the winter was warm enough most of the time that glycol systems were able to keep up, meaning much less work for our heater units... and our guys. They had a record low income at that office this season and they're seriously considering shutting down Colorado's office because the work isn't really there and with warmish winters and shorter cold seasons, they're spending more on some of these shops than they're making in the relatively short work season.

Fabricated some brackets to hold the fuel tank, air cleaner housing and wiring harness in place. Nice to get back to work on the trike. I need to start the process of getting it titled in Va.

Picked up another 100 bolts and fender nuts for assembling the brackets.

How do you like the comfort of those Summit black plastic seats?

They will be fine with about an inch of padding, through the hole and velcroed to the back, washable.
