Yep.. local makes a huge difference..
Right now, a long sleeve shirt is all I need to work outside, but during the
summer it's just too hot/humid to work outside..
Forecast this morning was for a warming trend, maybe up to 70...
After 2 years here, we've acclimated a bit though and 70 with a strong breeze is
kind of cold..
From what I've heard, your spring is spectacular, though..

A drywall bag is simply a disposable filter bag, fine enough to contain
drywall dust. I buy them in the Shop Vac (generic term...) section,
wherever Shop Vac accessories, like filters and hoses, are sold.
I find that the bag provides a steadier suction for longer than a HEPA
filter by itself. My HEPA filters seem to clog quite readily with
sanding junk. The bags also make the job of emptying the vacuum much
cleaner, but they aren't all that cheap. Since the main use of my
vacuum is with handheld sanders, I don't worry too much about the extra
cost. The bags last me a long time.
I do have a couple of the Cleanstream and they
I just thought these drywall bags might
make things easier.
I also use my shop vac for most sanding operations
but that fine dust is hell on even the Cleanstream.
Dumping those shop vacs can be a VERY nasty operation.
Maybe Craftsman makes a similar bag.
That was really weird. Thinking I had a Craftsman vac of some sort, I was
somewhat distressed to find that it said Hoover on the outside. Weird. Oh
well. Vaguely remembering that I might have bought a Craftsman filter for it
at one time, I looked inside to see if it was compatible with what
CleanStream was selling. Lo! It was a CleanStream filter. WTF? :D
1. Does not matter what version of dust collection you implement. The only way to lengthen the time between dumpings is to either stop collecting or get a bigger container.

has a really good write-up on the theory of a cyclone collector. Their catalogue has a lot of accessories to really make it sing.
3. As theory goes, the cyclone approach really works. In practice, it is only as good as the collection system you hook up to it.

The difference is that with a cyclone you just empty a container, you
don't have to beat dust off of the clogged filters, which if I
understand correctly was the issue.
With a properly designed cyclone very, very little gets to the
I see very little in the way of fines settling out regardless of
whether the machine I'm using is connected to the cyclone.
