Work light color temperature?

I own a few of the standard Home Depot work lights like the one in the pictue linked below. I'm trying to figure out what the approximate color temperature of these lights is, and I've had no luck checking the box it came in or the net. Does anyone know the answer to this question? I'm guessing it's close to 3200K because it seems warm like a tungsten. Thanks for any help!

[Sorry, I just read the low-budg lighting FAQ and found my answer... I can't delete the post or I would]

Are you aware of the replacement lamp type or number?
From there look up the lamp number on the GE, sylvania or ushio site.

This an example only. get the lamp number and chances are you'll find the colortemp. it's going to be around 3100, so it's no big deal.
