Snowed In!

Well, it’s happened again. We were snowed in two days last week, and now we’ve got ‘blizzard’ conditions and are snowed in again. Today we probably could have made it to work, but I’m past the point of taking unnecessary risks just for money…

Laurel, finally getting to make a snow angel.

More dead babies! Less taxpayer money! Yay!

In other little known news, Planned Parenthood killed 333,964 babies last year at the unbelievably low cost of $542,400,000.  What a bargain, eh?

Car repairs done!

A few months ago, our 1999 Ford Taurus started running rough.  Initially, I thought of spark plugs and engine tune-up.  We did a few things, got it running slightly better, but for the last couple months it has still wanted to die whenever it idles, with the exception of a cold-start, when it would rev the engine to about 3k rpm for a minute or two.  I began to suspect a vacuum leak…

Wind Turbine update

Well, my grid tie inverter is dead.  I’m sending it back to the manufacturer, and they will hopefully send another one out quickly.  Once I have that, we’ll hopefully be able to get feedback into the grid from our turbine.  It’s neat to see it spin, and see it charge a battery.  Will be exciting to see it power something!  More pics coming soon.
