Lowes also price-matches the prices from the other store so if you're heading to one of them I hope it is Lowes. Just sayin'...
I'm going to give my good CFLs to my first friend that wants them. My GF hates anything but incandescent so I already told her she can have all my remaining incandescent from the old house plus I have a new 4-pack of 60W and a new 4-pack of 100W (maybe 95W). Gotta treat the GF good, right?
GF doesn't use floods (65W). I got about a dozen 65W incandescent floods for anybody at DC who lives in Santa Clarita Valley or San Fernando Valley who wants to meet me at In 'n Out, Carl's Jr. or Tommy's and buy me a hamburger and fries. :)
I have a bunch of CFLs I think I'll ask my new neighbors if they want. I have a few new ones I'll probably keep. I realize puttig an LED in the attic light was over the top. You use it like 30 minutes a year... I'll put a nice high intensity CFL there. My LED virginity is already tarnished by the 4 cool white fluorescents overhead in my garage.
