    So, do I have to finish my summer projects before I can start on my winter projects, or should I just give it up and go to Florida for the Winter?

    Florida is awesome this time of year. The summers are really tough though. You gotta have AC in the garage.

    I just hope this winter doesn't extend until the middle of May and June 1 we go straight into summer.

    That's what I do, but am running a little behind. The kid and his family are coming home for the annual "Eat Dead Turkey Day" so I gotta be here too

    We got some too. I don't have my leaves all raked up yet. Funny story on that.... Our yard waste gets picked up on trash days which is Thursday for us. I took the kids to school yesterday and then came back and loaded the yard waste can up. I mean it was crammed full. The wife and I took our oldest to the doctor to get her broken finger checked out because she broke it 3 weeks ago. We were almost home after taking Izzy to school and Allyson turned the corner. I noticed the trash was picked up, and WTF? Our yard waste can is gone. I thought at first maybe it got knocked back or something. Nope, it is just flat gone. We saw the trash truck a couple streets down and the driver was on break. We went up to his door and told him our can was gone and he swears it wasn't in the back of his truck. I know times are tough, but why the heck would some one steal a yard waste can especially when they give you the can to use for free. It's part of our city taxes. I'm still betting that can is at the land fill with the rest of the leaves right now.

    Our county uses convicts to pick up trash, and I'm convinced they threw my industrial waste container into the compactor, rather than pull the bubble wrap out of it. I had plumb stuffed it with the mass amounts of bubble wrap which was used to ship my four post lift. I should have put the wrap into trash bags
