During interviews, a dear old gentleman named Dr. Eby often said “Did you read the book?” He was referring to the Bible. I thought of him, and his statement, when I read the manual for the air-conditioner.
My air-conditioner manual said to push a small sharp object into a reset hole after installing new batteries. So I did… and think it improved the operation of the remote control. Having that success, I checked for an obscure little hole in battery compartment of my indoor/outdoor thermometer weather station. My “sharp object” is a long, skinny “finish” nail. Almost immediately, the long-time blank area for outdoor temperature appeared. (Blank since I replaced batteries.) Hallelujah!! (When all else fails, read the manual.)
I worked briefly in the garden but was forced indoors by the heat and humidity. “Yes, 96 degrees in the sunshine.”
I’ve been frustrated by lack of outdoor weather information. I’ve “looked” at a possible replacement but considered it a frivolous expense and did not purchase.
