Nearly 80* here today in Georgia, but notice snowflakes falling here at Life Aboard. Nice touch, Admin!

I thought it was just my eyes seeing spots.

So.....the snowflakes are gone now, but Christmas lights to bust. Fun to do! Look at the very top of the page.

i'm in the mod for busting bulbs! Just spent an hour on the phone arguing with a moron from the cable company trying to wriggle out of crediting us for promised reduction due to lost service over the hurricane. he told me the hurricane problems with the service were allfixed in september and now over the 60 day time lmit to give us credit. Miracles happen in Florida, hurricane damage fixed a month before it even happens! Ok so we eventually got our $30 credit, not much but it is the principle of the thing, I hate being ripped off.

For sure.

My wife giggles when I start busting the lights. Usually, after work when I sign on here with my first beer. It just feels good!

Hopefully, our friendly admin guy has some fireworks in store for new years day. :D

Unfortunately, we saw 3" of snow outside of Philadelphia, November 15(?), 2018. Reminded us, why we moved south. Truck drivers sleeping in their cabs for 12 miles of icy roads. Children sleeping in schools because of no transportation home. :roll:

Yeah, we’ll see how well you feel about that when it’s 90 plus with 90% humidity and your A/C pump craps out. You’ll be missing Sandusky bad. :|

We just had the opposite. overnight winds are W-SW 50mph and temps holding at 40F which is actually good as our warm air diesel heater just went tits up quoted at $4-4,500 to replace when they can get one delivered. Chinese copies are available on eBay for just $200 plus installation, so food for thought. Currently we have a small fan heater running on 1000W low power that is coping just. Iif the wind swings east and drops so will our overnight temps. :o

Jaxfishy seems to swear by his low profile West Marine electric heaters. I know that cruising north in the spring is going to produce some cold temps a night. I’m still mulling over how to approach the issue. We have reverse cycle heat with the A/C, but when water temps are low, it may not be enough. We also have plenty of propane aboard, but folks say it tends to produce condensation.

Well, I was here in Florida this summer, but I have AC on the boat. I'm currently using it in reverse to sort of heat the boat.

Well our brand new genuine Eberspacher d5 arrived and was fiitede by two hard working guys 2 days ago, so we are now warm and cosy. Temps of couse have risen so heater not working hard to maintain a comfy 72F Rain however is a PITA and we discovered the hard way we need to keep aluminum window frame drain holes clear of muck or water gets inside boat. Havent seen any frost yet nor want to, but it will happen sometime.


HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR TO Y'ALL!!!
