OT Weather

Post by Brendan Hoban » Fri Jan 25, 2019 2:50 am

I know you have ice and snow in the US but here in Australia it's hot.

My dashboard temperature gauge was showing 47.5 degrees celsuis during a heatwave here in Victoria.

That's 117.5 degrees Farenheight, not suitable weather for a T Ford radiator!.

I feel your pain, Here in Nevada, we have many hot days like yours. I was having some trouble with over heating until I install a new berg radiator.

Am still pleased when the heat and humidity goes elsewhere, and while we have moderation in our seasons....
BTW - Heat has been turned off, and 'The Frozen Tundra' is allowed to winter just like our own yards around here. Woke this morning to see the thermometer to read "-20.0 F", so will agree with the statement "You know it's cold outside when you go outside and it's cold." An Army friend had been stationed in Alaska, and experienced -70 F, to which I'll say "No, thanks!"
Meanwhile, Twoo and Cranky are snuggled in their heated shop, and I can always dress warm enough to get out there! (No driving is planned....)

We are only temporary guests here.
"Life" is 'Terminal' - Celebrate Living!
"Let's Figgur it owt!" Just fix it (right), and make it work.....
Aah-OO-Gah! (and), "Happy T-ing!"
