Supposedly some "mixed precip" in the area, but all we've seen is a scattering of snow pellets, just enough to leave a thin line above the windshield wipers on the cars.  We may go above freezing today.  In theory.

Giving some thought to replacing our component stereo system.  I built it myself, back in the 1970s, and the FM tuner's stereo subcarrier filter has developed an intermittent open circuit.  Internal to the part, not the solder connection to the circuit board.  Naturally, that part is no longer available.  So we have monaural FM reception.  Also, the CD player (no, I didn't build that) has become erratic, refusing to even recognize CDs that play fine in, say, this computer.

Problem is, half the brands I remember for quality audio don't exist anymore . . .

(Of course, my pressing need for quality audio has also decreased, with the hearing loss.  What's the point of "high fidelity" when your ears are medium fidelity, at best?)
