Hot

It is frickin' hot out there.

I know this because I needed to head out to purchase something. The thermostat on our hot water heater started acting flaky a bit back, so I purchased a replacement. However, the replacement, while matching all the other specs of the Original Equipment power handling, is shorter. So I needed to find either another one of the same length, or the means to extend the wires in the hot water heater to meet the shorter one.

Events proved to be the latter. Fortunately, only one wire needed to be extended. And the hot water heater appears to be working; the water is warmer than it was this morning at the point the Original Equipment flaked out the door.

When I went out for the short drive, it felt like walking into a furnace. Indeed, Sydney SubaruOutback has a thermometer display for exterior temperature, and it ticked over at 95 F, just about 35.5 C. It is frickin' hot out.
