    Gents. Let’s not go down the path of a Climate Change discussion. It will go off the rails.

    I am always cold at 5am unless I am snuggled in bed.

    Currently lows at 46, high 80. Quite nice.

    I have driven through there several times or more but every time I did it was brutally hot! I would head from Victorville to the other side of the mountains and drive-by because I liked the drive. I remember driving by what I thought was an old Spanish mission but never took the time to stop and see. I'm not sure how close that was to you. Kind of wish I would have now that I don't go by there anymore.

    It was 9 degrees here in New Hampshire this morning (brrrr), which brings to mind an important point about cold weather. Make sure to humidify your guitars (especially acoustics). It's very easy to forget this an find that a soundboard crack has suddenly appeared on your favorite acoustic!

    All of mine are off the walls and in their cases. Humidified nicely. Been on the low 30% range for several weeks already 60% outside.

    There's a great thread at the TDPRI on the subject of humidification. You can use something as simple as a damp sponge in a plastic bag with some holes made in the bag to allow the moisture to escape. You can put this inside your case with your guitar for winter humidification.

    Everyone always talks about the weather, yet no one does anything about it.

    I use a soap dish with holes drilled in it and a sponge in my electric guitar cases and more durable acoustic guitar cases. In my more valuable Martin and Oldwave and Vega cases I use an oasis sound hole humidifier, mostly because I already had them

    If you own the kind of humidifier I own, that’s not entirely true. :)

    I thank the lower 48 for participating in the climate EXchange! The warmer temperatures in Alaska make for tolerable winter construction!

    Humidity here is 50% and higher. A humidifier is the last thing that I need.
