. . . and then there was one
Sigh. Brownie the Sailor Dog did a clever thing. I’d just sat down at the picnic table with my larger laptop. It had booted up and was ready to go. Then the dog got excited and decided she had to chase something. Only problem, she was tied up. Her rope happened to catch the leg of the canopy we’d put over the picnic table. It had been raining so there were a few gallons of water trapped in the roof. It all came down on the laptop and me.
The cold water shocked me and then the lights on the laptop went dark. I pulled the battery and opened it up to dry, but there’s not a lot of hope. Maybe when we get home I can pull the drive and see what I can get off it. On the bright side, the vast majority of the data was backed up in cloud storage.
The funny thing is I’d just spend hours looking for the perfect laptop backpack to protect the computers. It actually did protect my second computer as it was in the new backpack and protected from the deluge.
It hasn’t been all that sunny here in Florida. They may have to change their motto if this keeps up. There hasn’t been enough sun to keep my solar powered fridge running properly. Right now we are only keeping things like butter and cheese in it. We should get more sun the next couple of days so my batteries will be charged up once again.
Good thing I’ve got three complete small solar electric systems with me. I’m down to the third one to power this computer and some essentials.
On the bright side I’m feeling good, getting in better shape, and taking off a few pounds.
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.
