Bad luck Marcin!
I hope you made copies of your electronic messages etc.

I did copy them recently and did well because since Friday afternoon, we
are also again oversaturated with thunderstorms (East of France, Belgium).
Electricity was cut off (but nothing damaged) for almost the whole last
week-end in Belgium. I'm just back here in Mulhouse and have hardly time to
finish some urgent messages (sorry again Jan!) as more storms are anounced
for tonight. And "Ensisheim 2007" really requires night work for the whole
last rush week.
What weather are we experiencing ?

Glad the LL3.7 became LL3.1 !
  I love my 9.96 g end section and the 4.98 full slice! One of them will be
displayed next week-end in Ensisheim for the thematic exhibit (odd
inclusions, textures...).
Is it still S2W2 and how many pieces were found (for the tkw reported of
900 g) ?

What are you bringing in Ensisheim that is over 100 kg ? Your Mother in law ?
(sorry for that low degree of kidding...)

Btw: weather hot (in the 28?C's), stormy and humid predicted here until
Friday, then "showers and a slight drop of temperatures (in the 23?C's).
"Fair" for the Ensisheim dinner-party (where we are at least 85 people!).
But weather predictions do change (end refine) every day...

Note for the US listees (and related).
When I travel in the US, I learned a simple conversion of ?F's to ?C's:
Read temperature in ?F. Substract 30, divide by 2 and add 10%.

Example: 90?F = 33?C (90-30 = 60; 60/2 = 30; 30 + 10% = 33).

To convert ?C to ?F, just do the opposite...
