Hope everyone out there in engineland is faring well during the blizzard. Just finished digging ourselves out (round 1)...about 18 inches and still going.

Stay Warm!

Chris;

We got about 6 inches here in beautiful Southern Illinois yesterday and last night. It's supposed to be in the mid 50's by Wednesday and Thursday so the snow should be pretty much all gone by Friday.

Finishing up the 1913 Waterloo Boy in my nice warm shop. I'll post a picture when it's done. I'm finishing up the battery box and wiring and it's ready for a maiden voyage in it's new tuxedo.

Not sure what the true reading was, but I measured an average of 22" on the ground. Here's of shot of some of the engines that are still out in the open.

Working from home for a few days while I wait for the state to open up our road.

The historic Mt Clare Roundhouse in Baltimore (1884) didn't fare so good in the storm.

Reports from various sources are saying at least 2 very early locos, 2 wooden coaches, a wooden caboose, and an early boxcar damaged or destroyed.

We got 21" here in Carbon County, PA and the storm is wrapping up so not much more. Twice plowed out just to keep ahead. And the drifting in some places is waist to shoulder high. A nice picture, but doesnt lend itself nicely to my occupation of appliance delivery. Cant wait for my first trip into a snow bank with a fridge!!

And how many more days til spring??!!
