Its ridiculous. I have learned to live with 78 as our sleepy time temp, 80 during the day, and the t-stat goes to 85 when we leave for the morning.

If there is ever a night where I dont hear "baby, I'm cold" I will quit drinking, sell my jeep and guns and give the proceeds to charity, and then vote democrat on the next election.

I do not understand how somebody is COLD when it's 78. But then again I weigh more than like 110 pounds.

Pomona is hands down the best swap in the southwest US! A friend of mine that runs marathons said he hustled thru it 3 weekends ago and it still took him 2.5 hours to blast thru the whole thing.

The one I go to is mostly high end stuff. Race shocks, race hubs, race seats, race engines, race cars, etc... But there's always a mix of jeep stuff in there. More and more ultra 4 car stuff is showing up every year too.

Last year Merrick got some tools and seats for his Jeep, Andy got a grinder, I got my bypass shocks and some other stuff. Years previous I've gotten seats, shocks, sway bars, fuel cell systems, GPS, radios, etc...
We're about the same in an apartment. Ours is at 82 all day and night

Speaking of getting out of the heat....I'm headed to Long Beach right now, something about a Surf and Skate contest too, should be fun.

Ouch! You live in a ramada or something? We keep ours at 78 all the time, power bill has never been over $190. If you haven't used the NV energy site analyzer thing you might want to check it out, it's pretty cool, you can see how much and when your power is being used. Down to like 10 minute intervals I think.

CORRECTION : It's the "smart meter usage" and "show my energy use" button. Then you can change the dates and times and graph for 15 min intervals. My bill is a record for us $220 this month wtf! Must be the Warren Buffet effect kicking in already since he bought NV energy.

when I am home we generally go with 74. During the day I put upstairs at either 78 or 80 depending on the humidity. If it is humid I have had my coils freeze up when I try to go from 80 back to 74.

The tightwad in me tried to do 76 for a while, but I could not handle it.

For those of you that can find the time to tear yourselves away from your thermostats, there is a pretty impressive lightning display going on in the western sky right now

You mean the lightening that was slamming my entire neighborhood about 30 minutes ago on the east side of town. One had to have hit just a few blocks away. ****ed up my welding when it hit and scared the **** out of me! LOL

But hey, rock sliders are basically done... Just need the top plate fabbed up but that's gonna have to probably wait a week or two. Was gonna take it out tonight but I'm not a fan of mud and the couple water falls over on the west side of town we were going to test on are slot canyonish so we're gonna hold off.

If you guys get a chance try heading up to to Kyle canyon during the night. The fires are still burning across the southern side about 500-1000 ft under the summit. If you go to the first turn out on 158 you can get a good view of them. I went around 9 and the temps were already in the 60's for those of you looking to cool down.
