Did you get the ice as well?  Still no.power yet. Had a wicked storm blow through last night.  Comparable to a tropical storm. Lots of wind and heavy rain. Bet the power crews just loved that.. LOL. Well the storm did clear all the ice off so that should help. ROFL

 :yawn:  Was 62f when I woke up this morning..  INSIDE!  ROFLMAO!!  I guess the stupid furnace decided it wanted to take a nap.  Bet the wife was pissed when she got up for work. LOL  :devil: 

REALLY Stupid darn furnace.. Blower on the exhaust.. Vacuum line to a switch that tells the gas valve the blower is working. Now..  How in the heck does VACUUM LINE get plugged up??  :hmm:

Does anyone else remember the days when they built these things right? Didn't need no silly blowers on the exhaust. Only safety crud was the sensor that told the gas valve "Yup! The pilot is lit."  No extra ignorant circuit boards cause guess what YOU DUNNA NEED ONE whith a works forever mercury switch on the thermostat.

Yea? Well  I can understand not wanting to use the stuff in devices that break.  When's the last time you've come across a broken Mercury switch sporting thermostat?  LOL. Darn things literally work forever.

That's kinda dumb.. Discourage use of mercury in thermostats, yet mandate CFLs. CFLs break! :doh:

Post by: fingerle on February 03, 2012, 11:21:17 AM
 :yap:  :yap: :yap:

Should have mandated LEDs for new construction. Save Save!  Even less energy consumption. Centralize the power supply to run them then save even more due to being able to run low voltage 22-24AWG wiring to the fixtures instead of the 14AWG used for the Incandescent and CFL fixtures.

But Fing, the white off the LEDs is like super harsh.

Well? So are florescent lights. Simple fix. Put a lil yellow coloring in the diffuser.

  • On another note. The builder of this over priced junk house I'm living in could have done a LOT of things better especially for the original $300k+ asking price. But he did seem to get the insulation bit right.

Not real good riding weather here, either.  Managed to bog two 4wd vehicles to the axles today (the second was there to recover the first one).  Took two additional 4wds to winch the first recovery vehicle out then all three to winch out the original bogged one.  :doh:

got about that hot last weekend.  i kicked the fan up from slow to medium speed. :P


was up around the triple digits shortly after getting to tx on monday...i simply sat back wondering a) where the beach was and b) why texans seem to overcompensate with the a/c, feeling some need to make it 60f.  don't get me wrong...i'm perfectly fine with 60f....when it's OUTSIDE. :rick:  how do folks not get sick going from such temperature jumps? :doh:


Title: Re: 2012 WEATHER
Post by: john galbraith on June 15, 2012, 08:59:04 AM
They hold their breath while running between cold buildings and cold cars.  The trick is not to breathe in any hot air while being outside as little as possible. :rofl:

Just closed up and turned the A/C on before the house can heat up from today's predicted 90F.

BTW: Welcome home, Pinky.


Title: Re: 2012 WEATHER
Post by: fingerle on June 15, 2012, 11:43:15 AM
60f in Texas offices and such?  That's so our core temps are low enough we don't heat up enough to sweat walking to our cars.  Holding your breath helps prolong the effect.

Here's a thought for ya Pinky. You might want to go ahead and get that A/C set up.
Just so you're not kicking yourself in the backside while trying to wrestle it in place on a  100+f day.
