    Looks like operations are coming to an end! Supposed to keep
    cooling down through The Weekend, with rain possible every day!
    With the news threatening SNOW Sunday night into Monday.
    Nothing stated as to any accumulation, from what I’ve seen/heard.

    Now, since Phoenix is NOT shipping anything, it’s hard to get the supplies
    needed! Shop I use, is having trouble getting sound related items from Phoenix.
    Which includes 2NW2 sound cards, and a sound system programmer CD.
    So, I’ll wait until I hear something regarding sound! Hoping to run the NW set
    at club train expo in December. Gonna build a large scale “Candy Train” this year!

    Was hoping to maybe run something Thursday, but the threat of rain may prevent that.
    Oh well, that time of year.....

    Yeah, you know how the old saying goes - "Neither rain, nor sleet, nor dark... or wait, is that for some other profession?

    :D

    Might have to consider it, IF we get any measurable amount of snow!
    If weather is bad, I do NOT work! :D Other professions can, if the job requires it!
    I don't have a job, so I don't care!
    Gotta wait and see. Now Monday/Tuesday for possible snow.

    Took advantage of about a 75* day today, and ran the coal train for
    the afternoon. Ran it at a friends place yesterday, during a railroad club open house.
    Ran pretty good, had a couple of issues and some power drops in a couple of places.

    Might run again tomorrow, still gonna be pretty nice! Near 70* yet, last I heard.

    Get those miles in now. Our weather is forecast to start declining as of today. Probably yours will soon follow. Take plenty of pictures and videos, to help keep us warm through the coming winter! :)

    Weather going to start going downhill starting tomorrow.
    But, only gonna drop about 15 degrees, by Thursday, then
    start going back up again. Although, Mom says it’ll start getting
    by the end of the month, so another 10 days or so.

    Have thought about photos, as I run, but never brought camera(s) up
    with me, to take photo/video! I’ll have to try that today!

    Took photos of the last running time I had, 2-3 days ago!
    Now, I can NOT find the @#$%^&* photos I took! :mad: They are
    NOT on the media card that was in the camera, and they are
    NOT on the card that was in camera before that! Starting to wonder
    if I took all my photos, without a media card in my camera! And didn't
    notice the warning that I had no card in camera, when I powered up!
    Gonna be nice again, coming up pretty quick, so I have a chance at
    trying this again!

    I don't know about your camera, but some cameras won't trip the shutter without a card, unless a specific setting is enabled to do so without a card inserted. Is yours like that? I would search the computer for images and note the dates. It may have been misplaced in the wrong folder.

    Ouch. I hope you can find the pictures. :( At least it sounds as though your weather will allow another try.

    Can take pictures with mine, without card. Just doesn’t save them.
    Double checked the last 2 cards I had in camera. Nothing from last
    run session. At least I have a shot of getting photos again.
    Still gonna be nice for a short time.
