The Caretaker's Concern 11/18/08
Lake Temp. 48 F.
Ghetto temp. 43 F. (was 30)
Island tmp. 30 F. Yesterday's L/H: 35.5/39 F.
Current conditions: Cloud covered sky, dark night, wind from the North to North East, 5 to 10 mph, gusting up to 15/20 mph. Snow off and on throughout the day. Accumulation on the Island but nothing substantial.
It has been a rather mixed day today for the Caretaker, it has been snowing off and on throughout the day which makes the Caretaker happy, especially because it has been accumulating, nothing substantial, just a thin layer, and not on stone or pavement, just on grass, leaves, etc. either way, it is a start, and so the Caretaker is happy. There are a few things that did not please the Caretaker today, but he has done all he can for now regarding those problems and so will leave off with the negative stuff. If you are a follower of the weather conditions posted here, you will notice that the temperature of the Ghetto was down to 30 degrees Fahrenheit and then went up to 43. The Caretaker has finally thrown in the towel on the use no heat plan, two degrees below freezing was just a touch too nippy so the Caretaker got his propane heaters up and running. Well, this isn't exactly the first time he started with the heat, the other day he got his personal heater (which he carries on his person) up and running, last season during the lunar eclipse his personal heater had stopped working, he thought it was done-fur, but with a little bit of tinkering he was able to get it to run good as new, this pleased the Caretaker immensely. He share more about his personal heater, at least what he calls his "personal heater", others will know it as a hand warmer.
As for the propane heaters just started up tonight, so far so good, well, sort of, but good enough at least for now. The 13 degree temperature rise has made things rather comfortable, the Caretaker will probably not raise the temperature any higher for the night, in fact, when he goes to bed he will most likely let the temperature drop.
