Antares, if you built this and found a few extra friends, you could even get rid of that diesel engine of yours!

Re: Friday Morning Coffee & Weather

Wow, lots of people up early. First cup of coffee on our porch overlooking Coco Bay on GTC, Abaco. 78 F and partly cloudy, now, what to do today. Sail, bonefish, or a honey do project. Tree lighting tonite and free turkey dinner in town, AHH paradise is rough!

Re: Friday Morning Coffee & Weather

31 degrees F, snow, light from the south here in Amherstburg, ON. Late morning for me, watching the idiot box until 3 a.m., working afternoon shift this week, had to settle down a bit before bedding down.

Starbucks French roast freshly ground, a wee touch of cow, and we're on our way. Working overtime again tomorrow, it's that time of year for us in the salt industry.

Snow....white gold....to some at least.

Re: Friday Morning Coffee & Weather

Clear and Cool on the San Francisco Bay this morning. Nice nippy 47 right now. Makes my hot cocoa go down easy.

No wind, water like glass. But that's ok, I got holiday stuff to take care of today!

Re: Friday Morning Coffee and Weather

Reached a burrrrful 35 degrees last night in Elk Grove, Ca. Will be 60 today and slurpping down SF brewing co. French Roast. Boat work on Joli' Elle in Alameda this weekend. Was born and raised in Cunuckland. Never want to see the white satuff again!
