My shift will probably be 10 to 3 today. I wish it would be longer but I have other **** I have to do that I don’t want to.

I was supposed to get up early and hit menards to pick this up but now I have to find time to get it sometime tonight. 11% sale ends today.

https://www.menards.com/main/tools-h...1649542&ipos=2

Probably a total POS but I’ll give it a try. No deals anymore on the name brand units. Should have bought the 36V makita when home depot had it for $250 last year.

I do not regret one bit the 14 bucks or so I spent on an oscillating tool at Menards 10 or more years ago.

That’s quite a class trip. Did they attend Sidwell Friends?

64 here today. Knocking on 70 tomorrow, but that's without the heat index.

Does not cost much to fly from Alaska to Hawaii, and most were natives so the state paid for it.

It's chilly here right now. We didn't get over 57 and tomorrow we don't get over 60. Lows are all the way down to 40 and 42...

Next Sunday is back up to 80 though for 3 or 4 days.

How can they call a place “Pleasant Prairie” when the temperature is colder than Pluto?

We’ve had a nice pleasant winter here. I was working in my tee shirt yesterday, if it weren’t for a marine layer I would have today too. Apparently some blob off the coast is making it that way.

Oh you poor baby. My gawd, you're gonna freeze to death in those freezing temps. My goodness, you might even have to don a sweater.

At its warmest, when it is closest to the sun, Pluto can reach temperatures of minus 369 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 223 degrees Celsius). At its coolest, temperatures can fall to minus 387 degrees F (minus 233 C).
Now that would be a thick sweater.
