Yep, it's been hot and it really affects coiling!!!!

In Modesto last week, we were hovering between 110 and 113. I've been working on a little 20mA coil in the garage, but it's just too hot!!! I managed to build the MMC portion of the coil, but I think I neared heat stroke just doing that simple task.

I decided to spend the rest of the week floating on an inner tube in our little Wallmart $98 pool. But even that little 3x12 pool made a world of difference. Coiling? NO WAY!!! Of course, now that the temp has dropped to the mid 90's, my transmission took a dump (Murphy must be vacationing in California).

I can certainly believe 1,100 transformers died. I had my air conditioning on the whole time like the rest of California.

Take care,
