Another day at the office. 93 degrees at 4:30 am 🥵 An hour out in the field and it starts getting dangerous. Not much fun bending over and digging in the hard ground in these conditions. 5 weeks till Sept 1st and temps will be better.

That Hudson key may or may not be vintage. Says Hudson across the top. Not up on my keys 🔑 and what’s what. It‘s bronze I’m guessing. A few of those pennies are before 1982 and 95% copper.

I’ll take the clad and some copper and bronze and go back to the air conditioner home for bacon and eggs and call it a day 🤠 🍳

The Hudson key is a modern key, it is like a mailbox key. I understand the heat problem I did 4 park playgrounds for a couple bucks in clad and a hotwheel car and a cross in 102+ heat and regretted it but I needed to get out.

Guessing that key is made of bronze?

Yeah, this weather has been crazy. Bring on another iceage 😆

What part of Cali you in?
