For the past couple of weeks I haven’t been able to dedicate more than one or two hours total to this blog. The reason is the cold temperatures and the snow here in Denver.

I’ve been working in rebuilding an engine; but because of the cold temperatures (sometimes between -15 to -25 Fahrenheit (-26 to -32 Celsius)), everything is frozen and making the whole rebuilding process really slow.


You can see in the pictures how the freezing temperatures affect the metal (engine and tools), and with it, the whole process of taking apart, cleaning, rebuilding and putting together.

Fortunately, and with the help of a kerosene heater, slowly and little by little the engine is starting to take shape again, and hope in a couple of days it’ll be running once more, freeing me enough to have some time to visit your blogs, comment, and write in this one.

I believe in Murphy’s Laws, so most probably as soon as I finish with this engine temperatures will become nice and warm again. Somehow it is nice to think that I can control the weather!  :)

    Hi Kelvin,

    I know…I need to finish this engine so to push a different weather condition! :)

    I don’t know if Murphy’s Laws are real or not, but the damn thing works! :(

  2. I’ve done a lot of work on my cars, but I’ve never rebuilt an engine. I know working in the cold makes everything about that harder though. I’ll try to manifest some warm weather for you. ;)

    Hi Eric,

    It seems to be working already since the weather is slowly but surely improving :)
