    Speaking of new Milwaukee, I had to buy a new hammer drill and ended up just calling it a new Christmas present. Ended up with a M12 hammer drill and an impact 1/4" driver. This will force me to buy more M12 devices like their heated jacket and ratchets.

    Yesterday was bad so I thought I needed a treat.

    I just put up three portable garages in the yard, I anchored them down with cables on existing mounts in the cement pads that were there for trailers.

    One of the tents went sailing into the rail yard a 1/4 mile form my yard and it landed 1/4 mile from the nearest point of fence of my property. The rail cop showed me the amazing video of it, it was like someone plucked it out of the yard and moved it to the rail yard. It missed the high tension power lines, the train signal tower and poles, and even the switching shacks that are 15 feet tall.

    Needed a cordless hammer drive, so bought one, I already love it. I put in expandable anchors with epoxy in the slab, and then when i put the frame back together, I anchored the frame down where it won't go anywhere even in a hurricane.

    I got all the adult kids together for Christmas Eve, which is a great gift. The wife and I decided to not give each other gifts this year. We pretty much buy what we need throughout the year, so coming up with a gift is stressful for each of us. Why stress? I'll cook her breakfast here in a little while.

    Well, originally I though I was getting a 4 day weekend, Mother Nature closed everything in Wyo. on Weds., I had hoped my boss would reschedule the load for Monday in Casper, but no, he calls me Christmas eve, tells me the customer (Menards) wants the delivery by 7am on the 26th, which means I'll be up an don the road by 2:30 am Saturday. No rest for the wicked.

    On a positive note, the wife gave me an extra special Christmas present, and then let me go back to sleep
