Hey Man:

I just want to go ice skating on the lake. Today (Dec. 18), with the cooler weather, the lake has been trying to refreeze again, but the wind wouldn't let it. Hopefully, I'll wake up tomorrow morning and see a good start at some smooth and clear ice.

Well it finally cooled of in FL for a couple days, nice day today, about 56 last night and high of 74, but it's not supposed to last long, supposed to be right back up in the 80's come Monday through next Sunday.

87 on Christmas!

That just ain't right!

Don't remind me, Timbo. My HVAC exploded last weekend. So we may have x-mas without it.

Now I have to decide what to replace the HVAC with.. it's a 5 ton unit (60,000 Btu) 14 SEER split system.

Seems the "mac-daddy" two speed compressor & multispeed AHU blower is the cat's meow... but at $9,000 USD installed... yikes.

I did see the swamp cooler (styrofoam cooler & fan) setup was under $10 USD...

And don't forget, you can cool your beer in that swamp cooler too!

Well worth the $10!

This year is apparently a repeat of last. Its going to be 55'F tomorrow, and next week we're going to get 8-12" of snow.

Which I'm sure will turn into 12-24"

Supposed to be in the 60s here next two days. Santa's going to need to wear shorts!

I'm enjoying using less heating oil. It'll get nasty here soon enough. I hope so anyway, as sledding without snow is pretty tough.
