Good morning Jay, Jim and everyone else!

Hanging out while the kids are at Tae Kwon Do, trying to do accounting homework. I got through one problem and quit cuz my head is hurting.

Saw and ambulance and police car fly by us this morning on the way to TKD. Wondered what it was since they were going awfully fast. Sad ... a local indoor skate park run by the YMCA burned down. Irony is that it is literally 2 blocks from a fire station. I've never been inside, but it looked like a pole barn constructed with wood studs. The outdoor ramps were all plywood. I'm sure it didn't take long for the fire to take hold.
Update: Mankato skate park burns down (video) » Local News » The Free Press, Mankato, MN

Good evening everyone. Fixed the snow blower today and finished blowing the driveway. Worked well except the drive shifter is way out of alignment. Number 2 forward (out of 6 fwd and 2 reverse) goes backwards and the shifter keeps getting stuck. I think i might try to sell it soon and get a new one.

Should just be some more adjustments to get that right Michael.

Not much snow there Jim. pretty hard on the slides.

60? We turn the A/C on when it gets that warm.

Lots of icy corners. There was a ton of sleds out. One gas station probably had close to 100 at it. Of course 90% of the sleds were skidoo we saw.
