The thermostats in even a brand new oven can be off - they get jostled during shipment and can get off. My Mom just got a new rather expensive oven that was way off. That's why a $15 oven thermometer is always cheap insurance.

If you want to know your altitude - call your local Chamber of Commerce office. In the Lynchburg, VA area that would be (434) 845-5966 - Monday-Friday, 9AM-5PM, except holidays.

Here you go.Observed at:Lynchburg, VirginiaElevation:935 ft / 285 m Its gotta be your oven temp.
Also altitude is the wrong term ,elevation is how high you are from sea level,altitude is how high you are from elevation be it 1000 ft or 10000 ft.
Now I wait for Micheal to prove me wrong because I just well could be.

No, but I do remember the exit sign pointing west to Eden, and commenteing that we must, then, be EAST OF EDEN! I can also remember my car acting up in the Las Vegas/San Antonio area because it didn't have a high altitude package installed.

WOW!!! Thank you Michael for doing my homework for me!! I just moved here so I am still unsure of where things are and how to find them. I appreciate your help!!
The whole elevation/altitude thing makes sense now that you explained it jmp...I learned something new today too!!!
Thank you again to everyone for your help...if that is in fact the elevation of Lynchburg, it has to be my oven. I will get that fixed!!
