January 17

Sunday, January 17 — Awake about 3:30 am, up at 4 and rearranged the model workshop (smaller bedroom) in a MAJOR WAY to more painlessly work on models there. Everything is much closer to hand. I’ll take pictures tororrow. Returned to bed about 9 am, napped a little and arose again about 9:45 and went out to Anne, the pickup truck. Surprise snow, very dry, most of it blew off my truck in the morning wind, maybe 2 inches and very cold out and very sunny. Streets snowy in city but improved north of North Grand heading out to the airport. Cessna 414 being refuelled on the ramp. A surprisingly pretty and positive morning. Into office at 10:30. Worked on B-17 photo transfers > CDs, took things upstairs. ProcRm was very cold, darn. Worked on Piper Super Cub gift and Sea Vixen. Took Me-262 to ProcRm for prelim paint after the heat comes back. Still too cold up there. The IntaRm was too cold to work long, but I worked there for half an hour preliminary sorting before it was too much for me. Went home at 7:35 after a most positive day at airport in a while. Took no pictures, though. Almost no aircraft and too darn cold anyway. Day rating: A
