I don't think Samhill meant the meaning that seems to have come across.

Franco, it's only one person that seems to have a problem with anything that I post but you are correct I meant it to be light hearted & thought it was fairly obvious.

It is often hard to express sarcasm or make a joke on these type exchanges as I have found out the hard way. A highly refined, dry wit is often lost on this blank screen. Without tonal inflection or facial expression sometimes it is hard to have other people get it.

Ditto Will.

we've had a poor run of dang cool and rainy weather here. i put up with it for a couple weeks, then was just tired of the house being 52 inside all the time and lit up a bag of coal.

it's going to be cold and wet-ish the next 2 nights ( under 40*) after that i'll probably be out again.

I was just pointing out how good 46 degrees would have felt back in those below zero weeks that seemed to never end. It always amazed me how people will even just look outside or watch the weather & then go over & adjust the thermostat. How 70 degrees in the summer feels nice & cool but in the winter the same 70 is nice & warm.

Some years ago there was a news item about research into how the brain puts out a chemical that helps ramp up the system to deal with colder weather. If I remember correctly it takes a few weeks to work into the system as the temps drop.

However, that chemical can be quickly lost from the system within hours as the temps go up.

It's one of the reasons folks who go south for a winter vacation are shocked by the heat when they get off the plane down south, . . then after a few days there, are shocked by the cold when they get off the plane back home.

A few days of warm up in Spring makes us too warm at first. Then when the temps dip down just a bit, it can feel colder than what we were used to only a week, or so, earlier.

See, having a coal stove can help prevent chemical abuse ! :D

Yep,we're lined up,Larry. Same here....Good Thing we're 2-3 weeks behind on Spring. I could've seen a loss on the Fruit Tree Blossoms with this one. Should be more of the same for tonight. The clear sky was a welcome sight,however,compared to what we've been having as of late. :up:

Today mild but cold tonight. Yesterday was still cold and cold last night. I hope this is the last night of the low 40's. I'd like to put out the fire for the season. Stay tuned as we have a warm week. Once it's two in a row then we'll shut them down and send one back for some TLC. Kingcoal, I haven't forgot about you, I'm gonna need your help with something :D

Absolutely. Sounds great. Kingcoal I actually think we're going from winter to summer. This week the temps are 65 today and almost 80 the next 2 days. I want to be able to disconnect the pipe from the stoves and re-build a crate to put the Crawford 40 in to go back to Emery.
