Rear Power Port

Having USB power ports all over my truck is important, because so much charges off them nowadays. I can plug my bluetooth speaker or phone in here, when sitting out back of my truck. I also have a set of USB ports on the shelf in the truck cap, and ones up front. New with the wiring update is the ports are all switched -- so I can turn them off when I am not using them to keep the battery from being wore down over time. The yellow and green wires, which are dimmer-controlled power, run back to the overhead LED light strip.

Trump To Sign Executive Order Supporting Domestic Goods And Workers

"The "Buy American" portion of the executive order calls for stricter enforcement of laws requiring the federal government to buy American-made products when possible. Administration officials complain that those laws have been watered down over the years and often are sidestepped with government waivers."

"The "Hire American" part of the order aims to crack down on what the administration calls "abuses" of government guest-worker programs. The biggest target is the H-1B visa program, which is designed to help technology firms fill jobs requiring special skills but which critics say often is used to replace American workers with lower-paid foreign competitors."

We are up to 44 degrees under partly cloudy skies on our way up to 60 degrees later. Going to be the last nice day before my vacation starts. That said, tomorrow I plan to sleep in and go fishing and the Pine Bush Dinner then head up to the Southern Adirondacks on Friday. It doesn’t look like a big washout, just cloudy and cold with the largest amount of rain come Thursday. It’s just bad timing but how would I have known this when I planned my vacation weeks ago. I’m continuing to watch the evolving weather pattern and will make subsequent decisions as things progress. I want to get up to the wilderness just not on a cold, wet, mud filled days.

The sun will set at 7:41 pm with dusk around 8:11 pm, which is one minute and 8 seconds later than yesterday. Today will have 13 hours and 34 minutes of daytime, an increase of 2 minutes and 42 seconds over yesterday.

Tonight will have increasing clouds, with a low of 41 degrees at 4am. One degree above normal. South wind 5 to 10 mph. In 2016, it got down to 44 degrees with periods of rain. The record low of 18 occurred back in 1875.

It looks like gas prices have climbed a bit but that was to be expected with summer coming, and our warmongering president is who is acting like a bull in a China shop. But we all knew gas prices were bound at some point to go back up even if temporarily the world is awash in oil before we burn it all up and underinvest in new wells. Honestly, at this point I won’t bat an eye as long as gas remains below $4. I mostly use gas for my truck for recreational purposes. ┬áMaybe it will give the president pause before rolling back the very reasonable fuel economy standards put forward by the Obama administration. I like my big jacked up truck but I think people should be able to buy fuel efficient vehicles regardless of vehicle size.

Looking ahead, there are 4 weeks until Average High is 70 when the sun will be setting at 8:12 pm with dusk at 8:45 pm. On that day in 2016, we had rain and temperatures between 59 and 39 degrees. We hit a record high of 89 back in 1991.

Good morning! Today is Tax Day. Make sure that the TRUMP gets his share of your hard earned money. Partly cloudy and 40 degrees in Delmar, NY. There is a north-northwest breeze at 5 mph.

Today will be partly sunny, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high of 60 degrees at 5pm. Typical for today. North wind 5 to 7 mph. A year ago, we had partly cloudy skies and a high of 78 degrees. The record high of 90 was set in 1976. 2.7 inches of snow fell back in 1887.

Enjoy today, it will be the first really nice day in a while….
