Crappy weather arrived today. Freezing temps of around 25 ever night for the next 3 nights. Trees just finally formed some green buds and now everything is going to be brown. Sad deal

In, it was a snowy icy mess here in Denver overnight. With any luck we'll get some sun and it will be gone in a day.

Wish it would stay a little colder. Warmish day today, supposed to be in the mid 80's with about 70% humidity.

Went to get in our truck last night and it was completely dead, so we jumped it and then drove it down the road and the headlights, cluster, and everything started going hay wire. Guess its time to dump another $150-200 on a battery

When it's warm out, then you can keep wrenching through the night comfortably, less the mosquitoes

Yes but only so long as its below 75ish with low humidity. Our summer weather makes it hard to work even at night. For example I was at my coworkers place last night messing with a Polaris ranger, it was mid 70s with 90% humidity. It makes it hard to wanna work when your sweating only from walking around.

You can probably save it if you do some recovery charge and discharge cycles. I haven't had to buy a battery in years since I revive old batteries from work and trade out the ones I cant revive from the house.

Yeah I work a-work a-work like a dog all day
And then I take all I can take to get my take-home pay
I give it all I got until I give it away
But come Friday, high day, kiss-my-ass-goodbye day

I installed a window AC in my garage a buddy and I got for free, fixed a leak on, and recharged. It's no 60 degrees in there but it keeps me from sweating my ass off. I also have an evaporative cooler but it only feels good if you are standing right in front of it. Otherwise it just seems to increase the humidity and make your sweat work less effective.

This has been one of the most fucked up "Spring" seasons I can remember. It was sleeting this morning. Tomorrow back up to tolerable then back down to freezing for a few days.

In my town I think it only gets that high of humidity when it's raining or right after a heavy rain and the sun comes out.

We do get swarms of bugs like this, I unscrew all my exterior light bulbs so it's survivable:

70 on Saturday.

My car looks like I took it mudding, which I pretty much have been with the wicked snow melt going on up here right now.
