    So almost the same as here on the blessed east coast. We just get a little colder at night when we are sleeping anyway.

    Santa Clara is 54. Ray needs to move to the blessed coast.
    We are not hijacking the thread. It has been off-topic for a while talking about a house. ;)

    Hmmm. High of 84 here today. Forecast for tomorrow is 83. Then we're in the upper 70s until Sunday when it's only supposed to reach 68 which is closer to normal this time of year.

    You guys really can't be off topic since the Firebrid won't have its new home where I can work on it for another 3 to 4 months (depending on Delaware's weather.) I guess they don't call it Lower Slower Delaware for nothing!

    Shortly later ;), that car burned while creating a costly fire in Neil's personal warehouse. (circa 2010)

    "An investigation determined that the fire started in a 1959 Lincoln Continental and spread to the warehouse......We are investigating the components involved with plug-in charging."

    When I'm not in the garage, the orange plug will be out of the battery. Also there will be fire extinguishers on the wall of the garage and one in the trunk of the car.

    The garage roof trusses arrive Tuesday.

    The view from the new garage. The floor went in a couple of days ago. The Firebrid should move in late-April or early-May. THEN the fun begins again!

    I've been working from home for over a week now since the "Shelter-in-place" order here in Delaware. Getting concerned now. The builder let me know that they might remove home construction from the critical business list. We are sooooo close!
