80, sunny and a light tropical breeze. Ya right. more like 24, 10 wind chill and light snow. Saturday night they are forecasting another big dump. Mr Morris and I are suffering from a bad case of cabin fever though he did take a few steps outside before running back to the heater. I'm redesigning the power distribution board on the amp I'm building to cut down on some of the noise. The 2 big culprits are the bluetooth module and the buck converter for my 4 channel converter. I will probably change the layout of the converter before I'm done. Not true 4 channel, but it does add depth to the music.

17, cold and clear. High in the mid to upper 20s.
Jet, what do you want in a car? A commuter, worker, grocery getter? Back when I was commuting 100 miles a day I wanted a car that #1 was comfortable, #2 had a kick a!! stereo, and #4 got really good fuel mileage, and of course reliable.

Waiting for the snow to stop so I can do something. Winter storm warning starting this evening through tomorrow evening. 3"-10" more snow, maybe more in my area and East. Wife is doing her shopping today. Jet, take a look at the Subaru Forester if you haven't already.
