    Looking fwd to a warm spell. My sump pump drain frooze up where it exits the pipe. The pump does not run much in the winter but it is now seeping back and causing the pump to kick on every couple minutes. The drain exits out at the curb. I had to buy some pvc and make temp drain above ground just to get the water away from the house so it wont keep seeping back to the foundation.

    I dont remember the pump running at all in past winters, but the water table here is pretty bigh. I'm one of the few on the block with a basement.

    I have to repair some grass in my parkway that the plow driver curled over piling snow in my front yard, not happy! It's supposed to hit 50 degrees here Thursday, so right after work I'll get her done!

    I,m getting hard up as still real cold today with some wind :confused: I went out an checked out my rear garage window ,53 yds to my target setup an I can set a bow target closer than my range target . I have a big rolling steel top bench in front of the window that I can set my sand bags on . I cleaned everything off an have a 55gal barrel for a seat with a pillow on it .

    I can set a heater on the bench beside me an shoot in cold,rain,snow:D only bad thing I have to leave both garage doors open to see an make sure no one comes out of the house to the garage that sets out back 20yds away an walks around the corner of it. I will pick my times to shoot an just be safe.

    I'm impressed your even out shooting! I just might shoot something before the end of the week, it's warm enough for a change.

    I was out shooting in the wind an cold today (brrrrrrr) out behind my garage today where I moved the one bench to it,s new location to get out of some of that old NW wind this winter. got me another big block set at 25yds for some handguns.

    I took the scope off my S&W 460 too sight it in with the open sights on a big piece of cardboard with white freezer paper glued on it ,a red gallon milk jug cap in the center held on by my roofing nail in the center. made a fine target for my open has a hi- vise green front sight that showed up good shooting open sights, I really focus on my front sight.

    First shot about 2 inches high ,2 inches left setting the milk cap on top my front sight ,next shot almost cut that hole so moved it to the right a few clicks an shot 2 more an they were almost touching but to the right about a inch. moved it back a couple an dead inline right where I want it.

    I blowed holes in both my sandbags with this beast today an had to get some new pant leg covers :eek: fingers num,bags blowed apart so time to go in :confused: I love this gun :p

    Got it fixed just in time. I just thought I lived in the South apparently as the wind chill was -15 degrees this morning just after 1st light. I am watching for migrating Caribou in GA now. :p
