Sorry, I don't get thread update notices here at work.

Thanks for the kind words.

That would be adding an automatic front grill block! I wanted to do it last summer, but no luck. My wife and I spent quite a bit of time on the house, as in sheet metal roof, more attic insulation, drywall garage ceiling, and so on.

And speaking of garage ceilings, now that it sealed up better, the garage temperature stays above 30F even on the coldest days. Note that the temperature sensor is 6 feet above the floor. The home energy audit inspector said it was heat from the garage floor that causes this. And here I thought it the lost heat from the attached house wall.

This summer looks just as busy, with adding nine new windows to the house, putting in an solar powered attic fan, basement windows, and so on.

The CAT CON on the car needs cleaning, or so I suspect the way it is running lately, so that needs to come off. Rusty bolts, anyone?

I really would like to get that radiator block on this year. All the cold temps keep me thinking about it !!
