Hey Freddy, what di ou get out of the storm yesterday? We got just over 12 inches, and down in Brunswick they had around 18. You must have been right up there with Jay at around 2 ft.

Good morning,
Coffee in hand. Thoughts/things for today.
-Missed out on buying a used but nice Mark I for $500. Was planning on the trip today but he sold it last night. Was that you John?
-Will get out riding the motor bike today with temps up to 60F.
-I let the stove go dead last night. It was really loaded wth ash and too much work to bring it back alive late yesterday. Sometimes less work and cleaner to start anew.
-Getting prepared to travel to Rochester to begin new job on Monday. No rest for the weary.

Good Morning! This is the first time in a long I've got nothing to do or places to go and all day to get it done. What a concept? We are expecting temps around 75* in the National Capital Region today and tomorrow but cooler temps all next week with 65* highs. LOL Spring's not here yet though; just a small respite.

The one thing I am going to do is try to learn a little more about idling the stove but that's not much of a time committment; more a passing glance.

Well, I'm bored already - I have to go find something to do. I hope everyone has a great weekend. Lisa

Good mornig everyone! Already 60F in the sun, on our front porch. AMAZING! Yep, gonna be a whole lotta mud out there, in a few hours, when this snow all melts.
I was up late last night, finishing up my homemade TRUE SINE WAVE UPS for the DVC-500. It's working good, and already installed behind the stove. I spent the night running downstairs every hour, checking to make sure nothing is smoking, ( bad electronics smoke) but it is working like a champ, no issues. Today, I begin my 'Stress test" on it, seeing how long it will run the stove on battery power. I pulled the power chord out of the wall at 08:00 and like magic, the stove kept right on running. WHOOOO! WHOOOO! :D
