Winter is around the corner even in San Diego

    It's cooling off here on the San Diego coast. Summer was hot - it even
    reached 85 on ocassion. Now were getting into autumn with temperatures
    75/62 (hi/lo) each day. But just like up north and back east, winter is
    around the corner. Water level at Lake Miramar was so low that Amphipoda
    and I couldn't swim. The lake closes for a month. Lake Hodges, our
    back-up lake, is 22 feet below spill and worse yet, it closes for 5 months.

    So, I will do as the rest of you and take the time to do a little
    restoration and maintenance. Brake cable needs to be replaced, new shocks
    would be nice so while I am at it I might as well put those little rubber
    dust covers on the tie rod ends, and I still need to find the pilot jet
    that fell off into the bilge.

    Of course, I can do all this work outside and enjoy the fresh air and
    sunshine. So, eat your hearts out northerners, but don't move here. We
    don't need any more people, just Amphi parts.
