  1. I would move it back to the first hole and clean up all the governor linkages including the top one. Spray them with carb cleaner. Get all the linkages on the outside of the carb as well. Its extremely common for those linkages to get all gummed up and siezed. All that heat and dust causes them to stick. It looks like it has a throttle cable? Does that not adjust the engine speed?
  2. You ever do one of those dog DNA test? I ordered a wisdom panel dna kit and just got it yesterday. Will be cool to see what our rescue is. The vet thinks he is Dachshund and Chihuahua.
  3. Already 42 on the shoreline near New Haven. 50s are probably a sure bet.
  4. Huge issue in CT. Our previous governor made any juvenile crime basically exempt from punishment. He closed every juvenile facility and made it so assault, robbery, auto theft, and gun possession gets you released to your parents because your under 18 and a juvenile. Add in the no chase policy for police and kids under 18 can do what they want with zero repercussions. This has become a massive issue in the suburbs outside CT cities. Armed teenage kids from New Haven stealing cars and driving around neighborhoods is common here.
  5. Sun is out in Stamford and my van says its 53.
  6. Yeah. Was reading a reddit thread about it this morning. The amount of water pipes bursting is insane. Almost 5 million without power. Saw a drone video at night and the entire city was pitch black. People were burning furniture or whatever they had outside to try and stay warm.
  7. What a mess in Texas with the electric grid. The spot price of wholesale electricity on the Texas power grid spiked more than 10,000% on Monday amid a deep freeze across the state and rolling outages among power producers, according to data on the grid operator's website. Real-time wholesale market prices on the power grid operated by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) were more than $9,000 per megawatt hour late Monday morning, compared with pre-storm prices of less than $50 per megawatt hour, according to ERCOT data. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-electricity-texas-prices-idUSKBN2AF19A
  8. 2.8 million without power in Texas. Crazy how much the demand outstrips supply. Look at the green line for the forecasted demand this afternoon and evening.
  9. I thought they ended that. People were using the service dog emotional support loophole. The last time we flew we sat next to a girl that had a cat on her lap. My wife has severe allergies to cats and it sucked.
  10. I lived in Burlington from 2006-2010 when my wife was at UVM. My memory is a little fuzzy from that time frame.. Lol. But I remember it being redicously cold and snowy those years. I wish I still had my pictures from that storm. My car was buried to the roof.
  11. Spring was already under way here on the CT shoreline weeks ago. I had dandelions and weeds coming up, my roses were leafing out, bulbs sprouting. Any exposed grass is brown but under my pack my lawn is lush and green. Was digging out some firewood and the lawn looks great under the pack.
  12. My neighbor is a lineman for Eversource. He said they are bringing in a ton of out of state crews on standby.
