    The snow blew in last night, but it just kind of swirled around and didn't really accumulate anywhere. It's nice and sunny this morning....

    Here's a link with a bunch of Canmore-area webcams and some weather info. It takes a while to load up but it's worth it.....

    That's some pretty country right there. Little cold for me though.

    Well, I went for my bone scan last week and my doc should be getting the results back in a day or two. Right now everyone is under the impression that I have AT LEAST one fracture in my hand and wrist, and because I tried to work through it for a couple of months it may have led to ligament or nerve damage. Serves me right for trying to be a tough guy and ignoring the pain........

    I go to a hand specialist on Friday, and hopefully he can take all the information and come up with a friggin' game plan to get me all fixed up. Summer is right around the corner and I have a few projects I need to get done. :deal:

    So it sounds like you're working the 4" wrench for a while, eh?

    Nope. I have someone who's working it for me. After all, that's her friggin job, y'know. And for the record, it's a little closer to a 5", but not by much. Of course, last time I checked it was with a Bob the Builder measuring tape, and I can't vouch for it's accuracy.......:thinking:

    You try to play Connect Four while watching Monday Night Football-and get your butt whipped by an 8 year old.
