I think that every once in awhile it's good to say welcome to new members here. We've had a bunch of new signups recently and I was hoping to get some to respond.

Tell us where you're from, what you do, Anything.... How HOT is it? (I hear the weather is always a good topic to start with)

Eagle,

Thanks for chiming in. This looks like a lead-in for a stand-up routine here.
(... so, HOW HOT IS IT? [Linked Image] )

I've seen some weather maps lately with 110 in places - yikes! That must really be a killer in the attics and rooftops ! (Tar Beach)

Anyone else want to say Hello or add something here?

Bill

I want to say welcome to the new members, as well as express my appreciation to the older members of the forum. Maybe "older" is not quite the proper term...in my hometown of Wharton, TX, one is not classified as an "older" resident unless you have lived here over 20 years! [Linked Image]

I guess I am a relatively new member, having registered about a year or so back. I look forward to spending a few quiet moments at the forum each day, seeing what everyone is up to, and, on occasion, throwing in a word or two or asking a question to learn more. The vast knowledge imparted by these good men and women can literally fill volumes, and I strongly encourage others to become a part of this forum. It can only enrich your career.

Work Safely today... [Linked Image]

Great, idea Bill. I would like to say Welcome Too.


Here in the mountains it's been pretty warm but not in the 100's Whew, thats hot. [Linked Image]


Even here we don't make anyone go into an attic after 10:00 am and if there is somebody already in an attic at this time, they can use their own discretion as to whether or not they should come down and finish tomorrow. The reason for this is another thread.

Back to the new members. Welcome again!!! [Linked Image]

I see Electric Ed is here. Hi Ed, looking foward to your instructional expertice.

Roger

Hi gang, thanks for the welcome.
I'm an electrician that's been in the field for 29 years and just started my own business 8 months ago. I've been following this list for a while now and have learned a lot!
Bill, it's hot in the Philadelphia area too but relief is on the way.

Tom

Thanks Mike and Roger,

I'd like to add my welcome to Electric Ed too. Your illustrations are great!

Bjarney,

Yep, the Internet is a wild place! I learn something new every day.

Tom,

Good to hear from you!
I hope you're right about the relief, heat seems to get to me more and more each year.

My welcome to all new members too!

It looked like our English summer (usually about three days! [Linked Image]) was on the way a couple of weeks ago, temperatures up into the low 70s. But the last few days have been gray and wet.

Over here, everybody starts talking about a heatwave if the mercury reaches 80 degrees! Despite our changeable and unpredictable weather, we seldom get the extremes that most parts of the U.S. get. It can still get too hot in attics though.

Thanks I just signed up tonight. Been an electrician for 6 years after spending 20 years in another field. Thinking about going into business for myself unsure if it would be better or worse then working for someone else.
