I haven't been to harbor freight in quite a while. Don't really need much from there at this point. Recently they changed their coupon policy and got rid of the 20% coupons. They just started reintroducing them but you have to use the inside track club to get 20% - regular customers get 10%. Luckily my buddy has a membership so we stopped over there this morning and got a new floor jack. My old one wouldn't fit under the new Corvette. This new one is nice and has an additional 3/4" clearance over the old one. (And a photo comparing it to the old jack)

Good Morning CGs!

The sun is hiding today and there's a light mist of rain coming down. Good, get rid of the salt so I can drive my Corvette.

After a month of strict dieting the wife and I went out to lunch yesterday. Just the two of us and it was very refreshing to be out and to be able to dine in at a restaurant. Had some onion rings and a few beers. The rest was chicken and broccoli so I didn't go too crazy. But a nice cheat meal every once in a while is a good escape. I'll probably keep this up a little while longer.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Afternoon CGs!

Another warmish day here. Snow continues to melt. Had some rain last night which helped clean the salt off the roads. Saw a few Corvettes out there today. I'm almost ready...soon.

Marcus, sorry to hear about the situation with your mom. Hope it comes to a peaceful resolution.

Hope everyone has a great day!

The sun is shining again today. Not quite as warm but a welcome visitor. Snow melting means one day closer to Corvette weather.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Glad the wife is doing better, TB.

Snow is slowly diminishing here. I went and cleaned up the curbs in front of the house so you can park like a normal person.

Got the cars washed today. Wonder how long they'll stay clean?

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Evening CGs!

Had a other nice day here in the mid 40s with sun. It went away a little earlier than I would have liked. Cloudy now, not sure if it will rain later. A plus side of the warmth is the dog found a few bare spots of grass. He was happy.

Hope everyone had a great day!

45* here today and sunny. No complaints there, but I wouldn't pass up 70*.

We are pretty lucky with our house for the most part. Found a few little things here and there over the years but it's structurally sound.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Evening CGs!

We did end up getting a little bit of snow on Sunday night which turned into slush and frozen roads.

Luckily today it was sunny and in the upper 30s. It was actually quite enjoyable and nature did a good job of cleaning up after itself.

Tommy, thanks for reminding me about our trip. Unfortunately you forgot to post the picture of yourself on the beach so I did that below.

Hope everyone had a great day!

Gris, thanks for the tip. I've been heavy into fitness for 15 years including nutrition, strength training, bodybuilding, powerlifting, long distance running, etc. My only problem was eating too much. Easy to fix, eat less.

Andy, sounds like a nice time. Can't wait for some car shows this spring.

Good Morning CGs!

We are expecting some snow later today. Not sure the exact amount but it's a 90% chance.

I did get the car washed because I couldn't stand the salt anymore. Also I wanted to get the undercarriage cleaned off. That was a primary goal.

Diet is going well. Decided to shave a few more calories off my daily intake to ramp it up a little. I'm not the sprightly young man I once was so it's a little harder these days.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

We got another inch or so overnight and have some flakes falling now. Lightweight stuff so the leaf blower should clear the driveway.

Messed up my back the other day, most likely shoveling the heavy stuff. Sciatic nerve pain has been bothering me for a few days now. I need to find a new back cracker. I know they're everywhere I just need to pony up and call one. I'll get around to it

Hope everyone has a great day!

That's funny, Tommy.

Still cold here, surprise. At least we have power. I believe that alternative energy sources are viable I just hate the lies that are spewed out to try to make people scared of oil/coal/nuclear. Well, here's a good example with those windmills.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Heat wave here at 15*. Some areas around me got 14" of snow last night. We got a little less than that, we were lucky. Driveway is clear and ready for the next one. Hopefully this was it.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Afternoon CGs!

Tommy, very sorry to hear about your sister in law.

We are expecting 6-10" of snow this afternoon. Just what we need.

I was at my buddy's last night until 3:30 working on his snowblowers. Didn't have carb rebuild kits so just tried to use the ultrasonic cleaner and some tinkering. Got the 1960s snapper running, that thing is a beast. Carb seals are still leaking and need to be replaced. The newer 9.0 hp craftsman tecumseh will need a full rebuild kit and a few other parts like a cap, fuel lines, primer line, primer bulb, etc. Got it to fire but won't stay running. I'm not too well versed in small engine repair so it's always a new adventure.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Cold here, waiting for spring like everyone else.

Cold here. Got a couple of inches of snow last night.

Gris - math is racist especially when the numbers don't say what they want. The race-baiting news article today was complaining that 66% of people receiving the covid vaccine were white....but the population in Illinois is 75% white....uhhhhhhh.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

Time keeps marching on. Can't believe it's the 10th already. Or is it the 22th? I was driving yesterday and the scrolling digital sign on the library was advertising something on February 22th. Oh the irony.

Trying to list some car parts on ebay but I'm not too motivated. It's not car season here so I'm not in the mood. Seems like sales are slow, anyway. Hopefully pick up in the spring. Or perhaps on the 22th.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Suck it, T-Bone

Had about another inch of the white stuff on the driveway when I woke up. Dispatched that quickly. Did a few chores around the house and got in a workout. I'm having cabin fever with this snow and cold. Can't wait for spring and sports car weather.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Cold here with some flurries.

Happy birthday to the wife, TB.

Same here, Tommy. No family vacation this year. I think another Disney cruise is in order once it becomes a possibility. And a trip to Arizona.

Have to head to mom's tonight for some light chores.

Hope everyone has a great day!

We got another inch or so of white stuff last night. My fault. Roads were clear and car was dirty so I got it washed...

Was -2* earlier, we've got a heat wave of +2 right now. Yahhhhh!

BIL and SIL are having a superbowl party. Told my wife I didn't want to go. I'll be there at 4.

Hope everyone has a great day!

No trips planned for us this year, either, Marcus. Just a sign of the times. Looking forward to being able to go again.

Good luck with the one armed bandit, Tommy.

13* outside just to remind us what Chicago is really like. We'll have that evil "-" sign in front of those numbers this weekend. Brrr.

Those temps sound pretty appealing, TB. We will hit the upper 20s today. Supposed to get more snow on Thursday and then a nasty freeze this weekend with highs in the single digits and lows in the negatives. Can't wait.

Tommy, how is Sue doing?

Nothing else to report.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Afternoon CGs!

We ended up getting 10+" of snow overnight. I did half last night and the test this morning. Wet and heavy. The apron left by the plows was tough. Once I finished ours had to head to mom's house and do hers. And her driveway is bigger but longer and not as wide so easier to make passes with the snowblower.

Getting in a workout now.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Still cold here, surprised since I figure we should have summer weather by now. We are supposed to get 3-12 inches of snow this afternoon depending on who you ask 🤣

Tommy, glad Sue is not in much pain. Hopefully it stays that way.

Don't forget to wear your double masks, folks.

Hope everyone had a great day.

Good Afternoon CGs!

Mid-thirties here. We are expecting six to eight inches of snow this afternoon. Great.

The wife also needs some dental work. I think a crown or something of that nature. Maybe two. All I know is the dental insurance doesn't cover all of it and it will be about $1,200 out of pocket. Not much you can do when you need medical care. Pony up.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Welcome home, Tommy. Sounds like you'll need a vacation from your vacation.

Good Morning CGs!

Cold one here. Took the dog for a walk this morning when it was about 12*.

Went to mom's yesterday to cut down a new handrail for the interior staircase. I'm not TB so I was using my fancy angle gauge to try to figure out the cut....it was a total PIA so I laid it down on the stairs and marked the top and bottom vertically. 5 seconds and it was done. Sometimes we overlook the easy way in lieu of the hard way.

Also saw sleeping beauty while I was there.

Hope everyone has a great day!

The prom is the ARAP code if I remember correctly? I can try it out and see if it's still ok. What ECM do you have? I have one extra now, but would consider another.

Good Afternoon CGs!

TB, sorry to hear about Rosie. Hope she feels better. Coincidentally my wife fell yesterday and landed on her knee but seems to be ok.

Joel, in reference to your comment yesterday I did remove the prom but I don't know if it's still good after the heat and possible water intrusion. I also have two spare ECMs if you're looking for a backup. I also have a bunch of small parts I'm starting to list on ebay and facebook if you're interested.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Afternoon CGs!

Finally have a little free time so I'm trying to ramp up my ebay listings. I have a few boxes of leftover C4 parts to list. Wish me luck.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning CGs!

Up and at 'em early today.

We've got some snow coming down now and we've seen a bit over the past few days. No major accumulation but enough to be a nuisance.

TB, stairs looked good from what I could see. No finished picture, though.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Congratulations on the birth, Gris.

Raining here now but supposed to turn to snow. Plus more snow over the next 4-5 days. I got the winter tires mounted on the Honda this morning so I should be ready.

Is it spring yet?
