10:30 – Cold weather has moved back into the area. The high today is forecast to be 36F (20C) lower than yesterday’s high. There’s also a winter weather advisory out, with 1″ to 3″ of snow expected starting this afternoon and into the evening.

We shipped half a dozen kits yesterday, including three in one box to a Canadian customer. That’s the first time I’ve ever used a Regional Rate Box C. That box is next to useless for domestic shipping. It’s about three times the volume of the Regional Rate Box B that we use for most kits, but postage for the C box is at the 17-pound rate, versus the 4-pound rate for the B box. But the C box is also usable for international shipping, and is large enough to fit three kits.

I’m building more kits today, which is the story of my life recently.
