Careful you don't end up with with "turrets" syndrome. Then you'd be prone to uttering profanities.

Pretty sure that's when you have an overwhelming desire to man a big gun that's mounted high up on a wall, on a tank, or in an airplane.

Lol. In another thread not long ago, someone posted about using a quality foam roller cover. That's an oxymoron, is it not?

I used to use the small foam weinie rollers for doing doors and trim with pretty nice results. But I pretty much only use the micro-fiber covers for that type of stuff nowadays.

I guess we could go into a long drawn out discussion about foam densities and crap......lets revert to my original statement and say the yellow ones every "paint retailer" in the country sells a 5hit ton of are horrid! I can't think of any conceivable way to get more bubbles in a coat of paint. And people use these things for polyurethane? More bubbles then a gallon jug of Boone's Farm! (lightly carbonated for your drinking pleasure!)

After an entire week of snowfall warnings, wind warnings, extreme weather warnings, road closures, shoveling snow (lots of it) in the morning and when I get home.... I'm getting a little tired of this stuff.

Of course today it's gonna go above 0c, rain and then flash freeze tomorrow turning my world into an ice rink for god only knows how long.

Shoot me.

This morning we had a nice coating of ice on everything as well as a nice steady rain at 30deg.f. I would like to give a shout-out to my local Home Depot for making sure that the only part of their parking lot that they put any ice melt on was THE BONE DRY CONCRETE UNDER THE DAMN AWNING! Awesome!

At least where you guys live you are relatively prepared for "normal" snow events. Around here, the least little amount and everything grinds to a halt (well, actually it slides to a halt). Remember a few years back we had to go to Pennsylvania in January for a funeral. Snowed a few inches every day we were there but everyone had the means to deal with it and roads were good by 8:00am or so. Here, schools shut down and everyone stays home (me included) if there is anything over an inch. And Oregon doesn't use salt on it's roads - anywhere.
We had a snow and ice event starting last Saturday night and today is the first day roads are accessible. Supposed to get another two to three inches tonight. If this keeps up, kids will be going to school around the 4th of July doing make-up days.

When I lived in Oklahoma it was the same thing. An inch of snow and the whole city was shut down. Not a snowplow or bag of salt anywhere. They had to drive around in pick-up trucks and throw sand in the intersections. I must have looked like an idiot riding around on my motorcycle!

I like snow,can't ski on rocks. Plus it makes for good moisture for all the agriculture around here. More snow, more run off, less irrigation water needed.

Here's a good one. A guy came in today and said he wanted a really good 4" paint brush but he wasn't going to pay more then $5 for it. Like it's 1975 or something. Wasn't kidding either.

Well, I hope you sold him your "best" $5 four inch brush.

This morning, my world is encased in ice. 45K homes without power. Sadly, my own and my customers have power.

Only thing I have that meets that criteria is pig bristle and was made in India. Cheapest "real" 4" brush I have is $7.50. Not good enough for him.

My power went out at 10:00 last night and didn't come back on until 4:30 this morning. Lots of trees blown down last night I guess. My road was closed because of downed trees and power lines. Guess they had 90 mph gusts at one point. (don't know what that is in metric. 300 kph or so?)
