    It’s very impressive how you come across in media. Both the television reports, and especially the radio. You are the guy next door.

    Tim, You seem to changed your opinion on the greater Seattle real estate market! 2-3 weeks ago you were having pessimistic opinion. It is hard to follow you Sir!

    Somebody needs to ask Curly about those solar commercials. Does he really think it’s worth installing solar panels in cloudy Seattle?

    I don’t know if he’s changing his mind all that much. He predicted another 5 to 10% about 5% ago. So he seems to be on an even plane to me, other than he should be saying 0 to 5% to stay consistent with his forecast earlier this winter.

    ” As to the first factor, oversimplifying somewhat, a 50 watt panel should produce 50 watts for each hour of sunshine at 1.000 W/m². It will produce about half that amount (25 watts each hour) when exposed to 1/2 the light (500 W/m²). Diffuse light passing through thin clouds might mean 300 W/m². In very bad weather conditions with thick, dark clouds, light intensity could fall to 100 W/m² with only 5 Watts produced per hour.”

    I suppose next you’re going to say that the mortgage loans offered on talk radio are not always good programs for borrowers, that needle-proof gutters don’t work well and that my cats won’t like the Invisible Fence! :-D
