My goal is by first snow to have this done.... there's more then a little sarcasm in that estimate.
I've got a real shot at making it before the first snow - in Phoenix. May not occur this year.

Pappy
snow usually happens just after Christmas. We're so close to the Pacific Ocean that it moderates the temps - if the Puget Sound didn't happen, we'd have snow about the same time as Denver..... because it exists, we get snow events but it's almost funny how rare major events are - south of us (Oregon) tends to get more snow. That said, if we get hit... we can have one winter where we might get a few inches and about a week total of snow and the next winter several feet that comes in December and doesn't leave until March.

went out and bedded the new brakes.... they work excellent
then needed to mark TDC in a way I can actually see it to time it - first, get to TDC... well, I guess that will do

amazingly hard to get this in placeedited
