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.
iacon45: I probably would have passed but Im a sucker for obscure G1 characters and with V.S. on the way, it seemed right

Optimal Megatron: Yeah, I cancelled the Galaxy Shuttle pre-order just because while it looks like a good toy and I'm not that worried about QC, I just don't want it *enough*, really.

iacon45: Just got a ship notice for Victory Saber

iacon45: Will be good but sad to hear Conroy voice Batman one last time.

iacon45: Got Velocitron Galaxy Shuttle and QC is horrid on mine. Clearance issues, parts not sitting flush, and poor and incomplete paint apps in multiple areas.

Greatshot: Also very true
Dec 7, 2022 10:25:25 GMT -5
iacon45: And hopefully has a role longer than 5 minutes before getting axed

Greatshot: Agreed, i like his design, but unless he's cool in the movie, meh.
Dec 7, 2022 2:10:03 GMT -5
iacon45: Same for me. Battletrap looks like a good nemesis for Junkions but I have also had to cut back for space.
Dec 6, 2022 20:27:04 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: Not that it looks like a bad toy, but unless I really want him, it's just space concerns.
Dec 6, 2022 19:38:22 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: Rise of the Beasts Battletrap looks pretty cool and two years ago I think I would've snapped them up just on that, but unless he ends up being an awesome part of the movie, I suspect I'll miss it

Optimal Megatron: I like Flamewar, but it's mostly just having one of her after two separate Botcon exclusives

Optimal Megatron: Oddly, the mold's gotten progressively a little bit looser each time I've messed with it (Arcee > Road Rocket > Flamewar)
Dec 5, 2022 23:41:10 GMT -5
iacon45: Just got SG Slicer and Flamewar. This is my first experience with the Legacy Arcee mold and honestly, not a big fan

iacon45: I thought the same thing with BW Wolfang. I had the original and loved it. But looking over the reissue I realized he doesnt look as fun as I remembered.
Dec 4, 2022 22:12:02 GMT -5
iacon45: I bought the Walmart reissue G1 Devastator set because I never had the originals. He looks so good in package, I decided to keep him MISB
Dec 4, 2022 22:09:36 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: But having bought a BW Inferno (original) off of eBay, I was reminded that the BW figures are better than G1, sure, but not always as great as you remember.
Dec 4, 2022 22:04:33 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: I think the closest they got to me for that was the BW Reissue Mega Scorponok
Dec 4, 2022 22:03:55 GMT -5
Optimal Megatron: Yeah, Tonkanator is kind of... I have the Combiner Wars Devvy in my collection. Having essentially a Micromaster Devvy isn't a big appeal to me on an emotional level.
