Got a call the other night about 1:00 o'clock in the morning. I had to go into the plant to troubleshoot an electrical problem. When I finally made it back home, I crashed on the couch, worn out, too tired to even take off my boots.

Don’t Be Blue – Outdoor Lighting Has Warmed Up

Correlated color temperature (CCT) has become a hot topic in commercial outdoor lighting, as many have argued LED-based fixtures are just too, well, cool. In part, this is because this newer technology produces a different kind of light than the high-pressure sodium and metal halide fixtures we all became accustomed to during those technologies’ decades of outdoor use.
