Wow, You had to wait that long? I went with Harvey Windows, Which are rated the best vinyl windows and i would highly recommend them,  It was 3 weeks for the build, I had certainteed vinyl replacements from back in the 70's as well, Just about the time they had just came out, Not very efficient as they were drafty as heck in the winter, My bedroom was always cold and one windy night while at my computer i noticed the curtains moving and there was an 1/8" gap in the window and the cold air was just rushing in, Also went with a new cold fired boiler as well and have already realized a big savings on that in just 5 mos, The windows will absorb the sun in the winter and reflect it in the summer so i should realize added savings as well, My house was built in the 40's so we have been making steady improvements over the years but a big push this year with Boiler, Windows, Roof and Flooring.

what about Maine made windows?  Mathews Brothers.  I don't live in Maine, and they weren't on my radar screen until after I installed new replacements.  I did look at Harvey and they were in my top 3, but didn't go with them.

I’m not sure I remember a smoky sky like this before.  We get smoky skies from Eastern Canadian forest fires but this one looks different

Yeah, Sky was milky white here all afternoon.

Only managed 64F

July 2002 is the last one I remember similar to this, but that had more smoke in the low levels.

I think I recall maybe 2 years or 3 years ago something similar when they had fires near Woodstock New Hampshire?

Yeah there’s been some smaller ones. The end of June into early July of 02 saw many large fires in Quebec province. Eventually some plumes made it our way.

I remember that one,  the smoke was lower and looked like smoke, vs today with it's hazy sky

May 31, 2010 was more similar to this. There was less haze than what we had today though...you could see more blue in the midday sky.

Oh cool, y'all are talking about the smoke too.

It's something to look at vis satellite and see it stretching from coast to coast.  I was just made aware of the link to the HRRR smoke product, and it actually tries to bring it down toward ground level around here tomorrow in association with a cold frontal passage.  I know that can happen in some circumstances but when the source of the fires is clear across the continent, that would be impressive.

We’ve got mid-level clouds overhead, not going to get last nights drops up this way.

56F

Was 47° on the car thermo when I left the golf course.  Put on a pullover for the last few holes.

Heat's on.  (Further proof that I do not control the thermostat in our house)

And building on this mornings question- why is it thermo-stat but not thermo-meter?

Went with my brother in laws recommendations, He's been a contractor for 30 yrs and has done Harvey's, Who did you go with?

46 now. Drop has slowed, as usual.

Probably end up around 37-39 or thereabouts.

Doesn't look like you will beat alex on temps, But looks like you will rival him on snow in that locale.

The radiational cooling difference won't be as meaningful when socked in with clouds and snow falling. :) Precip will be king.

 

Yup, Its all about the qpf up here, Marginal temps will produce.

Maybe stat for homeostatic type mechanism?

Probably most of you don't remember when Mt St Helens erupted.  I was living in Boston at the time.  The smoke cloud didn't last too long over New England but for a few hours it was very noticeable and people were talking about it.
My godmother lives outside of Bozeman and I recall her telling me they had a couple inches of ash all over

47.5 at 9:17 pm on September 15th...not too bad. I assume the southerly breeze kicks in sometime after midnight, at this rate we will be in the low 30s by morning if this keeps up.
