It's still 80 here. It appears we will not be getting a winter this year.

I used the warm days here to reassemble more of my car's engine after replacing the head gasket.
For the next few days I have a glove with the fingertips cut off and a hair dryer on a cord for when I can't feel my hands at all. The trick with the dryer if you are using it to dry gloves or boots is to maintain enough airflow so the one-time thermal overload switch doesn't open.

This is a good place for hair dryers that don't heat anymore

So I could wire a slide switch onto the dryer for the case where no heat is required. The switch would only conduct the 10A, not switch it. Versatile is good.

72, bright and sunny. I don't now what I want anymore. I thought I wanted winter, but I'm really liking this weather.

I could never figure out why people up north where always looking forwaed to winter, until I realized that the average family had $30,000 worth of snowmobiles all tuned up and ready to go.

Now it's 46 and I'm cold.

As for gloating, come to Texas where the weather is OK!

We've got over 40 today and except for the rain would be quite nice. Actually our winters aren't that bad.
