Bikey complete. We ended up going east. Went to Alma (ate lunch at Mancino’s ) and returned to Edmore. 40 miles exactly. Had ice cream at sweet serendipity(formerly Dave’s dairy barn) in Edmore when we finished.

Live from East Jordan. Caught the tail end of a LSRC train passing through Grayling.

I like it when the Train Location/Heads Up posts contain some information about the engines, cars, perhaps what work the train is and will be doing. Seems like I’m seeing a little more of that.

Years ago a co-worker over did it at the company picnic. It was an ice cube bath for him. To add insult to (sunburn) injury, we needed his help via telephone on a problem.

Last time I shot there, the rear of the train was in the sun, Z. So at least this time I got the front lol
@ SD80MAC « Tue 10:39:02 am »
also, kind of glad, the gas in the generator was starting to get old. I put fuel stabilizer in it every winter, but still. Now I can fill it with fresh gas

worth it keeping the house cool and being able to sleep with my CPAP

At $5 gallon, that was expensive electricity.
@ ~Z~ « Tue 10:09:26 am »
consumers showing the neighborhood just east of you across the river is still without power.
@ ~Z~ « Tue 10:07:51 am »
hey, at least you finally got to use the generator.
@ SD80MAC « Tue 10:01:07 am »
Went outside at about 1 am in the thunder and lightning, wheeled the generator out and got it hooked up. Thankfully it wasn’t really raining by that point
@ SD80MAC « Tue 10:00:35 am »
Lost power for about 3 hours last night

Lots of knee-high and higher corn around Armada and Richmond. Is knee-high corn by July 4th still the benchmark?
@ DaveO « Tue 9:13:06 am »
The first half of the night the doorbell cam caught the fireworks from the neighbors. The second half of the night Mother Nature provided the fireworks. I slept through almost all of it :)
@ ~Z~ « Tue 8:48:55 am »
I hear you DaveO - lots of lightning and a good rain last night as best as I can tell. Trying to keep our lawn a shade of greenish at least and not a light brown color. More humidity from the sky is needed

.41 in the rain gauge here in SE Oakland County. Effect on crispy grass will be short term. Holiday is over Mother Nature, need more rain.

Sorry DaveO, the keyboard warrior comment wasn’t directed at you. You’re better at this than a lot of people who actually have been to these spots are.

It’s about to get worse. I’m going to get the call into trades when the plant starts back up in 3 weeks

AARR biking his usual route, even on holidays. At least you are out there getting exercise. section from Holland to Ferrysburg was new biking miles for me
@ ~Z~ « Mon 6:53:20 pm »
Te Biked to PJ Hoffmaster today, 55 miles. Took about 4 hours. Even saw a train switching at the power plant. Lots of yummy food at the picnic, swimming, good conversations, Tony Robbins tired.

@ ConrailDetr​oit « Mon 12:15:33 pm »
Agreed. Where is it is cooler when non google street view pics are used. I think the current pic is on Lake State north of Grayling
@ DaveO « Mon 12:05:04 pm »
If you mean take a real picture with absolutely no reference clues you’re absolutely correct. Keyboard warriors won’t be able to correctly guess, but then nobody else can either. It’s what shows in the image, not where the image came from.

Real pictures are harder for participants who are stuck behind a keyboard to guess. It’s certainly more entertaining when the keyboard warriors can’t play.

Poor flies 🙂

Think how the flies feel after they realize they just bit AARR, the king of the paper railroads. I can hear them going ptui now :lol:
@ AARR « Mon 8:34:59 am »
Except the biting flies, that is not such a good part of jogging this morning. If I do not get back in before sunrise I’m going to get bitten a few times.
