    Nice. Frosty.

    I always like to see at least one cold and snowy snap each year. Makes the coming spring even more welcome.

    Outside car temp was 5 degrees in Medford. I am sure it was colder in Chatsworth.

    Thanks, I was expecting a lot more $$. Are these lights really as good as the advertising? I know the lumen output is a controversial subject in that how the light is measured. I know this depends on the light mode option, how long do the batteries really last for useable light?

    As always enjoy your photo's!!

    Thanks Devil. I usually only have it on for 20 minutes, occasionally longer, and the level has sustained at full power. It is the most powerful headlamp I've found, a lot brighter than the smaller ones. For some reason it has a strobe function, and I'm not sure what purpose that serves. I do not expect it to last more than a year or two.

    I just got done installing a fan with light in my bathroom. They've been able to do amazing things with LED's. I remember buying an LED nightlight 10 years ago and they gave off a bluish light. I hated it. The ones in this light use a ridiculously small 6.5 watts to replace a 60 watt bulb, and they work just fine.

    Suppose you fall and slip a disc in your back out there. Here you are, 5 hours later at night, flat on your back, and you see a helicopter looking for you. I'd turn on that strobe pronto.

    An electrician told me that some new LED's allow you to choose five different color temperatures, and install almost flat instead of a can in the ceiling. It did not occur to me that the strobe was an emergency signal light. I thought perhaps it was a "charging black bear mesmerization strobe", and would cause the bear to stop, sit down, and consider whether or not he really wants to eat you. Either way, a useful addition to the gear.
