Wandering the Wal-mart aisles this week, I was looking at the left-over Christmas storage bins, and noticed this fairly large, flat case, used to store Christmas tree ball ornaments in compartments. It has dividers for 4 long compartments, and I decided to buy one to see if it would fit my Lionel O gauge items. Took it home, and got my Polar Express set out of the cardboard boxes I had them in, and they fit nicely! Will put some padding in them as well, but I got all 3 cars, the engine, and the tender by turning sideways, in the bin. The lid has a rather weak fastening design, but I can work with it, either with some screws or straps. But at least it's out of cardboard, and I can see the train inside through the lid. Check it out -
I bought a second one today, I may buy a few more, they're $8.36 here in Virginia. Pretty decent I think.
Hi, would you like to come home and see my caboose?
toyhoarder: Snow flurries all day. I am not ready for this.

crosswire: What's a snow flurry? Do not have that expression down here.

umpdan31: A snow flurry is a quick burst of light snow that may last anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours with very little, if any, accumulation. But then, you already knew that and were just bragging that you don't get any snow where you are.

umpdan31: By the way, crossfire, where is "down here"? I might want to move there. I hate snow!

JNXT 7707: I believe crossfire is in the Houston, TX area - south of ****'s Front Porch. Very, very slight chance of flurries

newbieho: I believe JNXT 7707 is correct. crosswire did mention some place call East Houston in one of his posts. We get a couple of flurries here once in a while, too...like 36" in 3 days. UGH! Can't wait for that again...the shoveling, etc.

crosswire: Ah, flurries explained. The closest thing to snow flurries that we have are leaf flurries. One good cold front (40s) in November or December and all the trees give up their leaves in one big mess; no warning, no color change, just gone. Yeah, just bragging

crosswire: I think I will take the boat around to a restaurant for lunch with the guys. Cheers from Laporte, Texas, east of Houston.

umpdan31: Sounds nice, Crosswire.

crosswire: Good thing it is not August!

rbturner: 38° here with **** flurries

JNXT 7707: We're getting Ohio weather from around early October it looks like. 60s-70s, clear blue skies, a nice breeze. A nice time of year to visit Texas.

rbturner: I would LOVE to spend some time at the TT/cabin.

yardmaster54: I don't know who is the worst, the college or the N.F.L. officials.

JNXT 7707: I think they are tied.
