Physics Puzzle for the Gearheads

Physics Puzzle for the Gearheads
The other day I was putting my SO's car up on the two post lift to change the oil.

She was watching as I ran the lift up and I commented to her - "Hey - it's finally  70° F in here."  She walked across the bay and looked at the small wall mount thermometer - and to her surprise - confirmed I was right.

How did I know?

The thermometer is stuck. Tongue
I never thought I'd live long enough to become a grumpy old bastard. Here I am, killing it!

I’m guessing something to do with the viscosity of hydraulic oil at 70F.

Nope. Bulb style alcohol. Never seen one stick.
Plus it really was 70°f.

Nope. Nothing to do with hydraulics.

Because you're an old fart like me and won't work in colder weather anymore. Final Answer. Tongue
