10:04 – It’s a standard Sunday around here, and most certainly cooler than usual this time of year. We finally turned on the central heat, because it was down to 66F (19C) in the house, and falling. The high today is to be 59F (15C) and the low tonight 41F (5C), so it’d get a bit chilly in here without the furnace running. I fired up the gas logs to test them. As expected, they burned for a couple minutes and then went out. Time to blow out the oxygen sensor with canned air.
Barbara and Colin are out in the yard blowing leaves and enjoying the cool weather outdoors. I’m working on a couple lab sessions about extracting and visualizing DNA and doing gel electrophoresis, enjoying the warmer weather indoors.
