    Working on the '50 F1 today, finally cutting out the original floors, I'm in the garage, got everything ready to go, compressor finally shuts off so I know I have enough air to cut the whole floor with the plasma cutter.

    Start cutting, about 12" into the work and the plasma cutter stops, blinking air light.. not enough pressure.. I check my pressure gauge inside, it's at about 60psi. So I listen for the compressor, no noise coming from the compressor house outside.. weird. I go outside, the pressure gauge on the compressor is at 140psi, almost full tanks.. that's weird.
    Then I check the dehumidifier, it's frozen solid!!!!

    I know you people up north must have this problem all the time, but I'm in Texas, it doesn't get cold up here.. I want to work on my car, not on my tools.

    Sorry just venting.

    it was 50 or so yesterday and that would have been cold enough to keep me from working in the shop if not for the fact that I am putting a clutch in my daily driver.

    had to do it so I did. won't work on anything fun when it gets below 60. I don't know how you guys who live in the cold can do it.

    I agree 100% with 49ratfink. You see that snow above don't you? :D As 49ratfink said - too cold. I need to fix some clutch pedals on one of my trucks and just can't bring myself to do it. 40-50 around here may as well be 20 below.
     
  14. We had freezing rain last night. Everything is covered with 1/2" of ice. And it is still well below freezing. The main roads are open but I live a mile down a country road. Only vehicle I have seen so far today has been a four wheeler pulling kids on a sled. Bet the mailman is at home right now reading my new Rod & Custom.

    Actually got down to low 20's last night, yesterday was 37F with 40 mph winds.. ouch.
    Today freezing rain and high 20's.

    I'm in Texas, three words: Air Conditioned Garage
     
  17. Man, you need to grow some stones. Anything above freezing is damn near t-shirt weather up here in Canukistan.
     
  18. We had a heat wave the last two days but today it's back to low 20's and dropping for the night.

    When it's 70/80 here in the winter, I wish for 20's weather (a week at least). I'm from mn and there's something about it, if your prepared.

    I went and had lunch with fab32 and FuelPump today. The roads were dry so I decided to take the old Triumph for a spin. It was fourteen degrees with a windchill of seven above. Open face helmet, no farring or windshield. To say it was "stupid cold" doesn't even begin to describe it.:D

    Ask any of the guys from the Suedes CC what cold is... Up North they know what cold is... I'm in the cities, where they dream about weather like ours...

    Yes, yesterday it was ZERO here on the east side, I put on my long-handles, 4 layers/shirt/sweater/vest/coat/bunny boots/muffler and headed out to the garage. Came beer time, I popped a top, one swig, then did some more work. Went back to finish off the beer and it was congealed in the bottle, had to put a heat lamp to it! :eek:
