Topic: roasting outside in the wind and cold (4 msgs / 55 lines)
1) From: peterz
In another post I explained about my watt roasting, but I still want to 
tell you about roasting in the cold.
I roast outside on the west patio.
A few years ago my wife through me off of that to the side yard because 
all the chaff was blowing into the living room. I snuck back on one day 
when it was raining, so I could be under a roof :)
Anyway, yesterday when I roasted on the west patio in the afternoon, I 
figured the sun would help keep me warm.
It was only partly cloudy here, but the wind was gusting from the north, 
so I did not have to worry a bit about the chaff staying on the floor 
and then blowing into the house.
That 12 to 15 MPH gale we were having was just keeping everything clean!
You know that wind was cold.
When the humidity gets up to 10 or 15 % it does put a nip in the air!
I mean, I started with a short sleeve shirt on, then changed to a long 
sleeve, and finally broke out a wind breaker.
Even had the hood up! 
Mind you, you ought not to mess around with weather when the temperature 
gets down to about 54F !

Still experimenting with roasting, here in blustery Lake Havasu City, AZ

54 degrees would be considered a heat wave here......

Heck, I rushed home from work on my lunch hour to roast because it was a 
balmy 26 F. Warmest temps we have seen here in weeks.
