Hey guys, it’s been a while since I’ve visited the forum but totally random I had a vivid lighting related dream. I grew up in farm area with an old fence and trees surrounding the rectangular property. The electric fence had insulators that my dad and I would collect as a kid. This was the early 1980’s however I would date the fence to 50’s or earlier that’s what my dad thought but it coulda maybe been 1800’s for all we know. There were oak trees that I’d climb as a kid and as my interest came about with lighting I’d dreamed of putting up fixtures around the property unfortunately my parents did not support my lighting hobby. So just lastnite I came into a dream where I was sneaking down the edge of the property at night One of my parents were sleeping I was still a kid and there was a house with an old lady living facing our border (in reality there was no one for a half mile ) and on one of the oak trees there was a Mercury yard blaster. Her dog saw me and was making a bit of a commotion but she didn’t wake up. I was nervous but wanted to put a new photocell, ballast, and bulb in the fixture as it was extinguished for years. I climbed the tree replaced the photo cell and ballast by moonlight lol!!! and the dog started barking once I got the bulb out of the package and I saw her turn a light on as I rushed to screw in a clear Westinghouse Lifeguard and I woke up. My idea was to fix the light so that I can enjoy it and figured she wouldn’t even notice LoL!

No problem, too bad I don't have a set for the second generation Goldeye. I'm sure a set must exist somewhere.

To be honest, I thought most people put away their motorcycles for the winter but I suppose if you got the right set of tires it's doable.

I know that they existed as early as 1985 as I remember seeing 1/2 dozen of them on the Connecticut Turnpike used as a test on one off ramp before the original GE Form 400 clamshells were replaced with 250w HPS cobra heads .

Would love to find the documentation for the later version of the Goldeye that I have though.

Try riding a MOTORCYCLE, during a windy day. I've done it. It was not fun.
Try riding a motorcycle in snow. I learned to ride a bike three years before I passed my car test. During that time, it was my only transport. Riding to work at 5.30am on country lanes with a mixture of sleet, snow and ICE was even less fun  @-@

As for our weather here in Dayton Ohio, I generally don't care to talk about the snow storms unless it's really, really bad. I hate winter, with a passion.
We got about 3 inches of snow that fell while I was at the movies with a friend. The drive home was not fun, and drifting snow at times took place
while we were on the highway, making the drive a bit tough. I... guess I can count this as severe weather...?

Got 4" of snow on Friday afternoon...obviously doesn't qualify as "severe" (hardly can even be called a 'storm', though it would be more than just a 'snow shower')
Can certainty use the precipitation, every little bit is good against the drought here.
