Had our Polar Vortex last week. On the coldest day, I turned over the car engines three times, just to be safe.
Today, I went for my (not quite as) daily (these days) walks, despite it being 4 degrees. I cut it my walk short, and just as well, since my face was freezing something fierce. Maybe I should buy a balaclava.
If you want something done, it's going to take time. If you want something done RIGHT, it's going to take longer.
During the vortex, we only hit about -3 in Pittsburgh here. (Nothing like the mid west got.) I had to work at the library, and because I live only three blocks away... I walked to work. It was surprisingly busy. After the vortex, it was surprisingly slow... Only dealing with the usual crazies, mobsters and MAGA-hats. (Triple redundancy, I know.)

We've not been above freezing for the last couple weeks up here in Washington state, and it dropped to single digits but didn't quite hit the negatives. However, we probably had about a foot of snow dumped on us, a couple days of clear, and another foot dumped after that, with even more forecasted for the rest of the week.
Makes me glad we're heading out for our Disneyworld vacation over in Florida soon. The farmers may appreciate the build up of the snowpack in the mountains for irrigation, but it's lousy to deal with when you're in the middle of it.
EDIT: Also, my backyard right now. Please note the above mentioned foot hasn't hit yet.
Optimal Megatron: Yeah, for me now it's just kind of acquiring different exclusives.

iacon45: This mold is better than it has any right to be.
Oct 16, 2019 18:38:02 GMT -5
iacon45: I'm actually fine with Prowl not having thw cannons ironically.
Oct 16, 2019 18:36:56 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: Admittedly, I put his shoulder guns on Prowl
Oct 16, 2019 18:26:35 GMT -5
iacon45: And Bluestreak also has the 2 shoulder guns and rifle.
Oct 16, 2019 18:23:07 GMT -5
iacon45: Maybe he wants to audition for the DOTM Wreckers
Oct 16, 2019 18:22:30 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: Smokescreen's the race car, and he has more guns than any other version of this mold.

iacon45: But if I had to buy another Weaponizer, it would probably be Cromar. The Sixgun mold has the most potential and I love the red and black color. Has a bit of a Gobot homage too.

iacon45: I only bought one of each of the original three Weaponizers. I never liked to troop build. Bad enough buying 3 Reflectors.
Oct 12, 2019 14:36:09 GMT -5
iacon45: That clear plastic on Mirage scares me. Bad enough the lower legs on the regular release are clear plastic also.

Optimal Megatron: And frankly, Cog is a fun mold to toy with, but I don't need three of him
Oct 11, 2019 21:52:52 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: But I didn't really want Clear Mirage
Oct 11, 2019 21:52:36 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: Yeah, the Powerdashers don't really do anything for me. I'd have bought them if I hadn't already doubled up on the originals
Oct 11, 2019 21:52:13 GMT -5
iacon45: I need to hold off buying TFs for a bit already as it is. The fact that one Powerdasher comes in a set I dont really care about is helping me not buy the other two.

iacon45: To be quite honest, I'm actually having second thoughts on Studio Devs. I'm already half way there and I mostly love the constructicons we already have. My favorite is actually Hightower because he is so unique. But Long Haul's issues have me worried
Oct 11, 2019 20:40:34 GMT -5
iacon45: Weight-wise mostly.
Oct 11, 2019 20:20:38 GMT -5
iacon45: Same here. The way he's going, I bet he's going to be pretty massive even for a Titan Class figure.
