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!
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...

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

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.

It looked like our English summer (usually about three days! ) 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.
