Default Gee it sure has been dead here the past few days.

Where is everyone? Out taking pics hopefully (when not at work of course). Tis a beautiful day here with the temps in the upper '70s. Wish I was cruising around in my truck with my camera by my side. Today is good railfan weather.

I'm at work 8-5 M-F, so I wish I was out taking pictures. No such luck here.

I squeeze in a shot when and where I can these days, which amounts to about an hour a week around the same ol' places. I'm lucky if I can get one decent shot in a month that I'm happy with.

I wish I had 70 degree weather here. It's been rainy since yesterday, and the forcast looks like rain, rain, and more rain. We actually had hail last night.

So it doesn't look like I'll be getting any shots onto RP.net anytime soon.

Yeah, work 7:30 - 4:30 M-F myself. Don't live too close any tracks to take any worthwile shots during the week. If I want to see lots of action on a weekday, I need to take leave. *sigh*

I've noticed that in the forums too. Could it be that people are getting the hang of the screening standards and aren't whining about them anymore? Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! Yeah, right!

As far as getting out, I hope people are. It's warm (39F) up here too. For the first time in months, I can see 100% concrete in my driveway: no more ice! Unfortunately, that melt has lead to some really sloppy conditions trackside. But, we are inching closer to the day when daylight will once again last longer than nighttime (20 Mar)!!! That's nothing but good (unless you start worrying about high sun rejects)!

It was almost 50 degrees today. All the snow melted, creating extremely dense fog. This morning, visibility was less than mile.

I'm sick, and so is everyone I know. I doubt I'll get anything anytime soon. However, it is unseasonably warm out.

I was bumped, now working 5:30a - 2p... Then I have school, so no real time for photography (barely sliding in in time as it is). Want some daytime photography, but the District Manager is back in town so I am leaving the Camera at home until after this month at least
