I struggled through a morning in my shop yesterday, trying to make some forward movement on a guitar, since I have three guitar orders behind this one. My kerosene heater and fan system usually burns me out of my small 10’ X 24’ shop, but not yesterday.
And today is another. I got the tinted burst stain on the body, but I don’t think the Tru-Oil will even dry correctly, even if I heat the shop for three-four hours. Air gets warm, but not the objects! I’m just not going to even try today…

It’s so cold, in Washington DC, the politicians have their hands in their own pockets!

And I live in SE Tennessee, about 15 miles from the Georgia border!!

Been doing pretty good heating my shop this year. Got a new space heater and will run two when it’s really cold, but when it gets down to zero or so it’s hard to keep it above freezing with a reasonable usage of my heaters. The goal was to keep it above freezing all winter. Not terribly cold right now, but I wish it were colder. We are gonna have ice and sleet instead of snow. I hate Firetrucks on ice!

Yesterday’s high here was only 34. This morning I got up at 6 and it was 24. At 7:30 I went out and turned the heater on in the shop (which was 29 then).
I can usually stand to work at above 58 or so, but just now (10:45am) it’s still only 40*. So I turned out the lights, shut off the heater and gave up for today.

It’s so cold here …. THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE SOUTH !
