Good Morning DieselRam....
Man...all this scooter talk is giving me the fever!!
My Triumph hasn't made it more than 10 miles from the house. Time....
Also, the Mustang is more convenient, drop the top, turn up the tunes and listen to the flowmasters.... Not the same as a big thumpin' twin tho.
Pigiron, McD's is pricey out there!! I usually sleep in the truck if it's just one night..

Anyway...(awkward transition)
Managed to dodge the rain, mostly, last 2 days and pick up a few.
People blowing up my phone every hour wanting stuff moved!!
On the clock today, 64 now, 70 later.
It was precipitating similar to a bovine urinating on a single plane mineral formation on the way in!
Rain and thunderstorms is the rumor for next 2 days. Flooding possible so we checking the boats.

5 days of 14 hour shifts, a day off then 6 more days of 14 hour shifts. Then back to normal. I'm burnt out! This is going to happen once a month until May, then another guy leaves. Then it becomes permanent.
Been cold and windy. The cold killed the batteries on my 2nd gen. I'll have to replace them. It has warmed up and we are supposed to get snow starting today through Friday. They are saying we will stay in the upper 20s for the next 10 days with on and off snow showers.

Hang in there Cougar, don't get behind on yer rest.
Rainy 50's today and no dumptruckin' so just goofed off. Did join in a jam session at the local hardware store.
Can you just roll the windows down on an airplane to cool off? Maybe cold beverages?
Do the Lockheed C-130 Hercules have air conditioning?

GOODMORNINGDIESELRAD...Scattered showers today and warm. Now for yesterday, I got a ticket in my work truck for parking on the concrete planting strip, not at all blocking the sidewalk. Reason was to get the back of the truck out of the lane of travel. I have already set the appeal process in motion. I was working at an old movie theater where there is no loading zone nor parking spaces long enough for the truck to fit.

Good Morning DieselRam....
It rained!!
Off and on, light to heavy, an inch to two.
The tornado warning was just a band of heavy rain.
Rumor of a snow flake or 2 by tonight.
Probably no shed haulin. Might check on a couple local ones when I get off the clock here in a few but it's WET!!
Guess I'll run some errands and dream about a shop to work in.

Cloudy 40's with a little rain.
No dumptruckin' today so hung around the shop and ran errands.
Is .005" deck clearance excessive on a 4cyl. diesel?
