Guess we'll see what return protection does.

Talia's headphones broke from CLE-ORD.

Anyone care to guess what the cheapest crappy headphones in ORD cost?

$39.95

That's a bargain! I once left back my laptop charger and was all so close to buy the ones they sell in Walmart for $15 for $99, and that was the cheapest stand, the going price was $120.
I managed to hold off for a few hours and paid $15 in Walmart.

Anyone going to the B&H Depth of Field conference?

Not me, for a change.

Highly recommended though. Got some really good speakers lined up.

Well that only took you a week and a half to respond to...I was going to go, I'm gonna be in Brooklyn the day before anyway but I'm not sure if it's going to work out to stay an extra night just for the conference.

Not as impressive as swings we've had in the same locale recently. 60 or more degree swings within less than 24 hours IINM.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I picked up a guy at the airport 2 years ago in February. He was coming from Melbourne where it was 112 degrees and landed in NY where it was 12 degrees.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

We've gotten that in Chicago before. I believe we'll have an 80 swing in the coming week. About - 45 here with the wind now.

How does your heat keep up with that? Here in NY when it's 0 - 10 the heat in my house struggles to get above 68 or so, even though it's set to 70.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

It doesn't really. The key is not letting the in house temp drop, as much as possible. My windows are old, so there is a constant draft. I have baseboard radiators for heat. It's probably 55 inside. currently around -20 without the wind outside. I personally think this whole thing is a bit overrated.

Wow 55! We did spray insulation a few years ago and I'm convincing myself it helped for my own sanity but truthfully I'm not too sure and they only did the attic since we didn't want to open walls. When it's really windy we have to stay in coats and blankets.

I think think the lowest I've seen my house get to was 64 and that's only because of the wind that keeps blowing in.

My gosh, I can't imagine being 55 inside, good luck and stay warm!
