The air inside the tyre shrinks(?)

 

How cold was it overnite? Do you have a truck barn to park it in? Boyle’s Law....

It was a sensor that lost it's programming.  @Jasper_the_2nd explained the pressure thing already.  If it truly was due to chill, it would have turned itself off within twenty minutes of operation - we are talking a commercial van, so 50 / 80 for psi, which means low pressure typically trips around 40 / 65 psi give or take...  Which gives more than enough range for things being a touch chillier.  This shop also tends to use nitrogen, because it has numerous benefits in our climate (namely, higher pressure stability)

There is usually enough range for the sensors for that. Sometimes in Feb if you are hitting -30 or so overnight you might get a warning.  Hopefully Edmonton isn't there yet.....

 

If you're Californian or from Texas, it might have felt like that to them this morning, since it was like 4-5C or so overnight ::P:

The one Charlie Brown does during lunch?

 

 Yup... ::D:

Back in the acting class in college, when it was my turn to do my monologue, I actually brought in a brown paper bag with a PB sandwich and ate part of it while performing.

That and Hamlet Act 4 Scene 4 are still stuck in my head twenty years later, lol.

Mildly annoying issue for the next couple days:

20200917_094821.thumb.jpg.cb2bcff36d78fd2817b0e028fae63925.jpg

 

City advised us that they are doing sewer system flushing today and tomorrow,  and that we should block drains and cover toilets just in case any backflow happens.

 

So now it's not just about putting seat down, now we have to remember to put the towel back on, too.

 

I guess that's less annoying than cleaning up a bigger mess, should one happen. 

I would advise putting a weight on the lid.  Should you be too close to one of the injection points a weighted lid could make the difference between you experiencing a septic geyser and having somebody else experience the "fun" of having their entire bathroom flooded.

Addendum:And make sure you have a good seal all the way around, no air gaps.  Will probably require two or three towels between the seat and the bowl plus between the seat and the lid, but isn't that better than having to use every towel in the house to deal with the sewer disaster of 2020?

The backflow will seek the point of least resistance for release, you want to make sure it isn't inside your domicile.

Good Luck.

+1 barding!

At 38 pounds that has some ballistic fabric for improved bite resistance.  I'd rate that at a +2 minimum.

Already considered all that. That's an upstairs toilet - I did the weight on the basement one, and plugged the sink/tub drains down there with weights as well. 

Should it backflow into our house, the path of least resistance is most likely to be our garage drain, which I capped not with a towel, but with an overturned bucket held down by a 60 lb bag of sand.

that is one of the best things about running a regular game at my house. It motivates me to actually clean up the game tables and desks and keep them organized.

You know. Next real life ReaperCon I make it to, I should bring a bag of Canadian chocolate bars. Coffee Crisp; Aeros; Glossettes; Wunderbar; Crispy Crunch, etc.

 

 

 My local Stop & Shop supermarket here in Connecticut has Coffee Crisp, Aeros, and a couple other things in their English food section. They also carry stroopwafels.

Grump's running his afterschool game.

 

The beholder police captain just got ARRESTED! ::o:

 

And is yelling at one of the PCs, telling him to stand down, it's IMPORTANT that he CAN be arrested! To let the arrest happen!

 

Holy crap! I just realized the beholder is a PALADIN! With all the trimmings!

 

He is letting himself get arrested because it is for the greater good!

I put that movie on in the background while doing stuff - I probably watch it twice or three times a month and still haven't gotten tired of watching it.

I'm pretty sure that the official sign of transitioning to adulthood is when your attitude to snow changes from "yay" to "oh noes" <_<

I think you may be right.

Which means I'm still on the cusp of adulthood. Sometimes, I'm 'yay!', sometimes I'm 'bad words here'.

I've gone past adulthood and into curmudgeonly old man when it comes to snow. It's still a ways off, and I am sick of it, i do not want to see it, I do not want to hear about it, I do not want to even acknowledge it exists in my world.  It's going to be a long winter for me.

I'm generally good with snow (unless there's three feet of it to shovel) except when it's one of those windy, wet days where there's slush on the ground, slush falling out of the sky, and slush flying sideways into my face.

No Reaper Live 2 Nite / Or maybe Yes?

 

It is hard to tell...

That was bizarre: I was seeing Reapers Chat but a stream of a pencil artist from Canada. 
 

But live now.
