Good Morning CGs!

Friday night when I was driving home from work my low coolant warning light came on. Weird. That will happen pretty often/commonly if you had just refilled the cooling system because it gets air pockets. But I haven't touched the cooling system in probably 2 years. So that's not a good sign. Had to be a leak somewhere. I had a chance to look at it Saturday morning. I opened the radiator cap and saw the fluid level was down about an inch from where it should be. Got out the pressure tester and it was holding 14 PSI no problem. Visually the radiator cap looked okay but I hooked it up to the pressure tester with the adapter and it failed immediately. So it seems the cap has been bad for a little while and has been weeping although I didn't smell anything. I told my buddy it's a good thing I have $35,000 worth of specialty tools to diagnose a bad $12 radiator cap. I'll pick up a new cap when I get a chance. I'm getting ready to put the car in storage for the winter anyway.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

ANOTHER DRIPPY MORNING IN THE NATIONS, BUT NOT SO COLD. THIS HAS BEEN A DISAPPOINTING OCTOBER SO FAR. AND THE OUTLOOK IS NOT ENCOURAGING.

AND IN THE NEWS:
ALGORE, COURTESY OF PBS (PUBLICITY BY SOCIALISTS) IS STILL PIMPING HIS GLOBAL WARMING SCAM, SAYS THE JET STREAM IS GETTING LOOPY. THAT'S NOT THE ONLY THING THAT'S LOOPY---

AND THEN THERE'S AN EXAMPLE OF REALLY TOUGH LOVE:

I'M OFF TO GOLDEN CORRAL FOR SOS AND EGGS.

ALLONS GURUS!

Greetings! I slept in, of course, and when I came downstairs I had to rub my eyes when I looked out the window - it is snowing. Ick. Fortunately it won't last, but still.......Ick.

Have a snow-free day, Gurus!

Isn't that always the way—I find I have to fight desperately against ignoring the easy solutions now that I have all these tools.

Big snow here......glad Tee's 007 isn't sitting out in the driveway......what a mess......at least 4" and not letting up....just went out and scooped the deck and the walks......it is only October right......? not even the middle of October......it does not bode well for the future......

Well the Huskers are 0 - 6.......somehow with 5 min left in the game and a 10 point lead they managed to find a way to keep our record perfect.....sigh.....maybe its a good year to be a Chiefs fan....... they are on tonight....I will find all my old Chef's gear and wear it proud......

Matt ..... glad those tools are paying back......I think you should get more of them......

I think a nap is in order after all that scooping......... geez........here we go.....

But without those tools, it's just guessing. I still like to know.

A little snow here...nothing like the vid Marcus sent me of him scooping the deck off. Ground was warm enough, it was melting just about as fast as it was landing. Going to get pretty cold tonight, low 20s. Tomorrow, mid 40s for a high.

Just heard, this is the earliest snow on record for Wichita, since records have been kept.

How did you record it back then TB? Paper and pencil or tablet and chisel?

Don't feel bad, Tommy was recording Boston snowfall on the cave walls with charcoal.
