Hello Kbota... how's that tractor running?
I'm also off of Lurpron now, but only a few months.
I really think the weather has lots to do with the hot flashes. Living in the North West where the weather is cooler I really don't experience many hot flashes. When I do it's usually for a very short period of time. Summers here are in the low to mid 70's.
But when I was at the GFMPH in La. I did experience more intense hot flashes lasting for a minute or two.
So, you don't have to move all the way to Alaska, Washington is far enough .
