Well when you compare it to average January temps in Michigan I'd call it balmy, bet if I go to the local store there will be plenty of folks in shorts, I'm sure @Sty57 has his on :rock:. It's all about what you're used to, its hoodie weather when I get working and then if I have a hat on (which I almost always do) then I'm pretty moist :baba:, but I don't want to get cold.
Saw stuff just hit a wall for a min, had an international shipment come back because "the item was refused at the inspection in Chicago because it was a dangerous item":crazy2: :nofunny:. This was thru USPC, I may be trying a different carrier, need to talk to my buddy who just moved back from Texas as he specializes in international shipments.
Anyone want to come run the "shipping dept" .
Chicago is terrible, New York is much better.

You want to fill out an application sir :lol:.
How are you Del.
Talking to a few guys right now trying to get more info on it. I have a buddy who has a place in western NY, he lives up here and goes out there all the ti.me, may look funny with my address on it though going thru NY. I need to figure out something, I'll be calling my buddy who's with DHL in a few, this is his area of expertise :yes:.

Been a few of them already.
3 sleds went through and only 1 person made it back out. A few weeks ago.
I saw that, not good. We have a largish lake just north of here that most yrs someone goes in, it has a spring on one end that rarely freezes.
I hate hearing that stuff, someone out having a good time and they don't make it home :(.

hi RAY - well, sometimes things just exceed the sum of their digits. maybe... kinda like a modded saw that just runs better than expected sort of thing. no doubt I had expected a lot out of my NY strip dinner... but omg, I was in for a surprise. it all came together nicely! very nicely. the surprise item was those Brussels. off the chart, imo. so creamy and sweet. so tasty I think even some 'nay-sayers' would be asking for seconds! ;) the asparagus turned out really good with the sugar water soak. but while each tastes dif, could not say one was better than the other. both just so tasty. of course the Prime was a delight, too. QB had grilled pork chop loins. the Hollandaise sauce was a great compliment, too. and the big Portabella mushroom cap was a special side treat. w/butter and garlics. boiled russets chunks, butter, S&P... and some parsley from the garden. one glass of wine in prep stage and another together with the QB at dinner. she was enjoying the event... her usual is a half glass is a bit too much! lol ;)

great meal and plenty leftovers for a Replay...
Granddaughter just saw the plate. Says it looks good, but the wine should be soda.

It can.
I just went and shipped another one, heading just east of you to NC, nice running little 346 with a mm.
It was easy peasy, but she couldn't find anything on the zip in the UK. I'll need to talk to my buddy tomorrow and I'll see what UPS says too.
No risk no reward right :numberone:.
Or we fall but we get back up :buttkick:, as long as your falling forward it's all good right:lol:.
Here's the one I just shipped.
Here's one I'm keeping :D. Same bar and chain and this one went second, both do a great job to me.

The ice is really bad around here this year.
With all the snow, rain and warm weather. It has made it very unpredictable.
