Andy ArthurSo I've limited my choices for the weekend to Central NY, NY 8 in Adirondacks, or NY 30 in Adirondacks. Chewing over those options.

5:14 am

Andy ArthurIt still probably is quite winter like, e.g. no leaves on trees in Adirondacks. Then have to worry about sun burn, not as pretty.

Andy Arthur@albwxexaminer For nicer weather this weekend, do you recommend Southwestern Adirondacks, or Central NY, e.g. south of Utica?

12:31 pm

Andy Arthur@StickFigureMan That would be NYS DOT. Also, they didn't use the new DOT Clearview font, as required under MUTCD. in reply to tweet no. 197,686,574,585,102,336 by StickFigureMan

Andy ArthurI was surprised to notice the second battery wasn't charging in my truck. After pulling fuse between batt 1/batt 2, discovered not working.

6:49 pm

Andy ArthurI don't know what was wrong with the fuse, because after I tested everything, reinstalled the fuse and the cover, it was working again.

6:53 pm

Andy ArthurClearly it was the fuse that was loose, because terminal of battery 1 was hot, while input terminal of isolator was dead... fuse not blown

Andy ArthurHopefully this won't become an issue.
