I woke up early Wednesday morning to discover the grid was down. Heavy wet snow took down a lot of trees. Many trees still have leaves in them, so the snow has something to stick to. October snow storms are really bad for tree damage.
The solar electric battery bank had been topped off when the weather turned bad. Our kitchen woodstove was keeping the place warm. We were in pretty good shape. It didn't take too long for the utility to get the power back, but we could have lasted quite a while.
A little while back I expressed some concern about the economy and stock market. Looks like that problem has not gone away. Wednesday all previous gains for the year were wiped out. Let's see what happens in the coming weeks.
So someone is sending bombs through the mail. I am curious to see ho long it will take to catch the bomber. Will the catch the bomber? Probably, but these things can take time. I remember how long it took for law enforcement to find the Unabomber. One thing that stuck in my memory was how badly the criminal profilers were off the mark.
Still working on nagging medical issues. I'm not a big fan of antibiotics, but sometimes you need the heavy artillery. Oh well.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
