A little. Plenty cold for next time.

Friend in town. Finished fixing his dad's roof. Flew their drones.

Attack of the six foot ladies. Otherwise known as Thanksgiving dinner with my niece and her family.

Not much work until the leaves fall.

Business paperwork backlog. Looking for a newer used truck. No luck so far and prices soared. It got some Winter work. Dug some post holes, moved some blocks. Two months with little exercise since lawn season and my arms were really sore for a few days.

The city politely offered to fine me if I don't clean up my yard .. with an impressive list of "violations". They say I must have a license plate for my 1971 Dodge Demon. That means registering it. $100 to $200 a year. It hasn't run in 20 years, is not on the street, and usually has a tarp over it.

i dont understand why you should register and pay for a car that is on your property and not on the public roads. Thats not nice.

that is remarkably clear ice. We usually get it more milky. Seems nice for skating. We dont have a winter where I would be brave enough to step on ice.

No luck yet finding a newer used truck.

Spacekdet do you have your ice picks (ice hole escape tools) with you?

Government action is seldom about what is right, reasonable, or good for its people. I can probably cover it with a tarp or make a fence to hide it and they won't care. Otherwise I'll have to put it in storage or register it.

Couldn't find the ice picks but I was wearing my life jacket under my coat.
It might or might not save my life, but it'll definitely make it easier to fish out the body.
Reporting back: several days of above freezing temps and actual sunshine and now heavy rain have put the kibosh on any further skating action.
Lesson: It was nice while it lasted.

The Forest Service 'dozed the road to the hang glider launch. Now regular 4x4's can get up there. People flew yesterday. They are hoping to have a Memorial Day fly in. Uh, I mean unorganized unofficial non-event Fun Fly that doesn't encounter innumerable regulations.

The Memorial Day Fly In was fun but not big. I didn't get to drive. Friday no one was here. Saturday a couple of pilots arrived but didn't fly. They camped at the landing zone. Today a few more arrived and some flew. More plan to fly tomorrow but I have to return to work. With this launch inaccessible for 2 or 3 years I thought many would be here.
