Been looking at some Steger mukluks made in Ely Minnesota. Supposed to be really warm. Look well made.

It should hit 40 today and melt all our snow. I sure hope so as it was a very wet snow and brings down trees and branches. I just heard the power to the range is our which closes it.

Hope it opens by tomorrow.

Here is eastern Washington State we bottomed out at 9* above. Had another 3” of snow overnight Tuesday and another 2-3” last night. I think we’re out of the woods now with highs in the upper 30’s predicted for the weekend.

My go to coffee cup. 27 years ago when my wife and I were dating the latte craze was beginning. I had just moved into a new house and she bought me (us) a latte machine and a set of coffee mugs. I’m not much of a latte drinker so the machine is long gone but here 27 years later the four mugs remain. Originally they had a printed design on them which is long gone. I love these mugs as they fit my requirements for the perfect coffee mug which is. Large capacity as I drink lots of coffee and a handle big enough for three fingers.

How much snow did you get? We got 8” or so of really dry stuff up at Blaine/Whiterock. At least it was “easy” to move due to being so dry. We were at 10-14* for the past few days, but back up into the 30s today and mid 40s by satso hope it disappears fast!

Time for a triple espresso and some good toast. Nobody was out yesterday because of all the snow, so our bakery that usually has 2 or 3 loves left by the time I get there, had a great selection!

It’s a fun little rig Mark. One of my friends had an ‘85 back in highschool (‘86) that was fantastic, and another friend had an identical one to mine from ‘88-‘95. Lots of memories in the 4Runners from the 80s. I was driving FJ40s back then. Now I have a 100 series Land Cruiser and the 4Runner as well as a Dodge Cummins 3500 for towing and camper duty.

The plow was a 20 minute weld up. I have all the bits to make a proper one with wireless remote etc that would go in the front,but haven’t had the time I need to weld it all up. It will be home brewed as well, but more or less like a factory built version. I’m going to use my multi-mount winch to raise and lower the blade, and it will just slide in to the receiver I put in the front bumper I made. Unless we get another big snow forecast, it may not be ready until next season.
