I know that I have not Posted anything since my last one. To be honest, their has not been much to say. Just doing what should be done. The weather here for the past 6 days has been quite cloudy, a bit windy, and way to cold for me. Those 6 days their has not been a ray of sunshine at all. Just rolls of clouds. It was starting to get to me after time. Sick of no bright sunshine, but so were other people that I’ve over-heard. Finally, 2 days ago the sun did make a appearance. That was a good thing. The sun did warm the weather up a bit, but it was still too cold for me to get “out there” and do something around the house, so I stay inside. I’m just not a cold weather person. There are lot’s of others that put up with the same thing.
So, yesterday, with the sun out for the first time in awhile, I made a quick trip up to the Hamburg Distilling Basin. Long ago this area was once a place to dump coal silt from the river near-by. The coal silt is still here after many years of rain & snow. Over time parts of the basin have filled with water in the low laying area’s creating sort of a shallow pond. There are no fish here. Nothing except frozen water and dead leaves from the Fall. The temp. when I took this image was around 38 deg. After this I headed back to the car and turned on the heater to warm up.
I also have a covered patio in the rear of the house. Over time I have placed some wood working machinery in it so I can build something out of wood. The problem I have with it is there is no heat in there. It’s as cold inside the patio as it is outside. I have a chop saw, a drill press, a table saw, a scroll saw, and a router table. I don’t use it that much during these cold days, but sometimes I do when the sun heats the patio inside. It’s not much heat, but it does help. Woodworking is like working in the Machinist Trade which I did for almost 30 yrs. before retiring.
The table router that I have. I had to machine a better back fence for it because the one that came with the table was not as square & straight as it should be. It is now.
That’s it for now. Thanks for stopping by.
