Govt Shutdown - One Positive
Just got the word I can go back to work! Yeah, for me! Maybe that trip to New Orleans over Thanksgiving will be a reality after all. Anyway, I got up early this morning at 5:00 unsure whether to put my butt on or not. Had a couple of emails from my company discussing rumors of defense contractors going back to work. Finally decided to put the butt on at 6:30. Figured worse case I was out 10 bucks. Have done pretty good on holding temp between 220 - 270. I did feel the need to play with the DW but in hind sight should have let it ride and see what happened. None the less, I've refrained from opening it up heading though the seven hour mark now. Here's a photo as I put it on. Suggestions on when to start checking temp?
