    We're in 3-season days here, 30s overnight warming up to 70s during the day. Was windier than anything for the past 3 days, but now it's just a slight breeze and plenty of sun. Perfect golf or motorcycle weather and can't do either today. At least it will be the same for the Bowl party, bought the 100in screen at Fry's for $60 and all hooked up in the garage with the projector. Proceed to party....

    Wow, 12 degrees in New Ulm, MN warming up to 31 degrees by Friday... a veritable tropical wave. UH,UH! Not buying it, parka packed. Going into the deep freeze again this weekend.

    Better bring your snow boots too. I see sunday at 6am we will be under a winter storm watch and blizzard watch by 6pm.

    Good Lord nothing like a 60 degree shift in Temperature in one day to shiver your timbers. 90 miles across snow covered farm land; thought I was going to need a Ski-Doo.

    Well I think mother nature is going to punish me this time. Gone form winter storm warning to "blizzard warning"; not looking to good for having to drive 120 miles to Minneapolis on Monday morning to escape this deep freeze. On the other hand Schell's bock beer fest is some mighty fine beer let me tell you. So good night to watch the blizzard from inside the hotel bar. Bartender set me up with some antifreeze please.

    I figured you were in New England with the 3 ft + of snow we had Kurt.
    Still digging out.
    Had to get a backhoe to come and dig our road out. 7 foot drift for about 40 yards.

    Well hopefully by now you have had time to dig out islandfire. Barely got out by skin of my teeth in Russell, PA last week by driving 2 hours to airport in Erie, PA at 1:00AM to beat the "coming blizzard" but, apparently it fizzled out also. Your safe for a couple weeks till I head out in March to Ft Wayne, IN on March 5. Watch out around March 10th though, headed to Epping, NH so don't put the shovel away quite yet! BTW anyone interested in doing an AFG Super Summit this year John Lyman has offered to host it in Waterford, MI in late April. Touch base with me if interested or you need information on it.

    Just added another class for Spring Hill , Tennessee on April 19-20th.

    Also looks like John Lyman in Waterford, MI is going to host the AFG Super Summit this year on April 25-27 and yes i know FDIC is the same weekend but, are you going to go to the show and just walk around and drool over all the neat equipment and gadgets or do you come and insure that you have the money to actually buy the stuff? LOL!

    Just heard from another 2012 AFG Super Summit attendee who won $917,707 this morning for a regional SCBA! Last years class pushing well over a $10 million mark in funding for those attendees. 2013 AFG Super Summit just around the corner folks!

    You mean 1199A? Wasn't any regionals of that amount this morning. Good deal either way, just wondering if their system is screwed up again and not posting all the awardees.

    Oops my bad, they got their ops grant awarded today and the 1199a for the regional posted this morning also. Gotta learn to follow my own advice and read my emails more closely.

    Keeping a close eye on it now. I have a 4 x 4 reserved at O'Hare in case I have to drive in but, not once since 2004 have I ever NOT been in front of the class at the appointed time and this one is going to be no different. I may have to drive through a 5 hour snow storm event to get there but, never count me out... if I'm there everyone else better be also. It was 34 degrees here in Fla this morning so not much temp change. I think Mother Nature was just getting me pre-shilled for the next several days. Monitor me on fh.com or Facebook tomorrow as we fight our way in to Ft Wayne.
