Or at least that's how they were forecasting it for the last week and half....
They were predicting 12-15" in town, but I think we wound up around 5"- 6", which I am not complaining about.
With the doors and drawer fronts done, I had some time to kill before getting the countertops made up. One thing I've been neglecting has been the basement. Last fall and early winter I was busy selling stuff on eBay and I kind of let things get out of hand like my box supply. So I took full advantage of the snowday today and got after it.
After an hour or so of cleaning I got it to look more like this.
Not perfect, but at least I can walk around it now without needing to be an Olympic Gymnast. I also wanted to test a few locos that I had scored on eBay so I turned the system and got them tested. Then I thought:
"Why not see if I can get something running"? I had a trio of units sitting on the mainline from where I left them set back in May.
"Hmmm? I wonder if they will even budge or not"? Dialed them up and they began to move, not very fast, but they were moving! After a couple of laps to warm them up and dragging the cleaning cars around, they were running quite nicely.
As evidence, I still have a lot to clear off the layout yet, but one thing at a time...
