    the annual rainfall calendar here is from October first thru the last day of September. our average annual rainfall is usually 34" as of feb 15th we had 36" and we still had 8 months to go on the rainfall calendar. Texas or Arizona is looking mighty tempting right about now

    My 87V hates condensation. Never had water get in it, but it throws a hairy conniption thinking you have leads plugged in when you don't. I had to dry it out to get voltage readings because it kept beeping and showing lead, thinking the current ports were being used.

    Stop, step back, relax and have another go at it.

    You must have a nice lawn with all that water, I have a cheap meter I use for rooftops and save the 87 for inside unless it's dry out, I love when I get sent to change a compressor in the rain, can anyone say moisture problems, the sales dept just doesn't get it

    If we had that rule, we would only work three months a year.
