#1602: Five hours later!

It took five hours for me to get the '86 out of the garage and strapped together enough to be hauled away. I also got the '85 into the garage, got a cabinet put up, got a bunch of stuff sorted out, and took care of a few other chores which have been needing done since, well, just about ever.

So FINALLY!!! the '85 is back in the garage, the '86 is sitting where the '85 was (under the same cover, even) and I have sent pictures to the prospective buyer and to three other people who have since expressed an interest in the thing. That was a pretty busy day.

And it's m-f-ing HOT outside.

I'm not kidding; after May and June having highs averaging maybe 75°, today's weather felt like the freaking Philippines.

The temperature? 86°. But I don't know if I can trust that weather station, considering that it reports the dewpoint as being -99.9° and the barometric pressure as 0.00 inches. But the Crete one isn't any better even if its inaccuracy is mainly in the temperature domain--that's the one that consistently reports the daytime high as 10-15 degrees hotter than it actually is whenever the sun is shining on it--so I must take all this data with a grain of salt.

But I don't need a thermometer to tell me it's f-ing HOT!

So anyway, all I need to do now is for the guy who said he wants the car actually to come and pick the thing up and lay a franklin on me, and I've already told him I'll help him load the thing onto the trailer. Then we'll have one less car in the driveway, and everyone will be a lot happier.
