27 17 Why thank you sock. Right back at you. Anyway, neighbor lady was over last night, worried about her son and his fiance, on a work assignment in Oxen Hill, MD. I told her the snow removal and emergency services in that area are in a class of their own, and that cheered her up. I didn't tell her what class, not wishing to upset a Mom.

34 OMG now they're saying Bangor Maine is going to have heavy snow in January. I normally don't leave the weather channel on for more than a minute, just to catch the local, but I'm waiting for the shots of empty bread and milk shelves, and Home Depot mobbed for shovels and stuff.

38 Mornin', folken,

I'm up a little earlier than I intended, but since I took off yesterday and had a pleasant hour's nap in mid-afternoon, I don't feel worn out. Friday was a good day, with a visit to a local small coffee shop/bakery, and then checking out the local Ollie's Bargain Outlet. Those of you who said it's like Big Lots were right. There were a few good bargains, though not like a Dollar Twenty-Five store. There were name brands like Barbasol and Simoniz, and others I didn't know. Not bad.

Today? Got to run out to renew Chekov's Rx for prednisolone. That's how it's spelled on the label. The vet is out, but they say they can write me an Rx and I can go to any other vet shop. I'll need to have them call to make sure the stuff is available.

65 26 degrees. Consistent wind with gusts up to about 40 mph all night long, and continuing for now, blowing and causing drifting of maybe half a ft of snow accumulated thus far. (Hard to tell real snow accumulation with the winds.) Anyway, it's still active near northern Delaware and SE PA.

74 Get to try my refurbished snow shovel and see if it works. Put a new aluminum edge on it.

I never cared much for shoveling snow. I paid 6 bills for a Toro some years ago, and have to admit I was pretty excited waiting for the first snowstorm. Up bright and early, it was kinda fun.

A Shovel just doesn't evoke feelings of excitement the way the internal combustion engine can! "Better things for better living, through large, high output horsepower engines".

People have no idea how much energy density is contained in a pint of gasoline. Myself included, because I suck at Math. But nothing else comes close, really. Not at the cost and availability anyway.

Agree. I looked at the Greta Approved Battery Snowblowers. Most of them would be okay for a 4 inch snowfall. After that you better have extra batteries or be willing to wait hours for a full charge. I figured the 22 inch snow my small Toro took care of 9 years ago in about 2 hours, it would have taken a battery one about 5 days.

Today, probably more than once, a neighbor will come by with a snowblower to clear the brim left by the plow at the end of the driveway. I shall be forced by common courtesy to thank them.

I want to go to bed tonight satisfied, knowing that I cleared the whole thing manually.

Nobody will think I am a hero for doing so, and I won't care. I take satisfaction in shoveling.

I moved plenty in those days, even to Denver from Da Swamp. But I had a job waiting for me there. Considering the cost of moving and of rent or buying property today, it's really hard to pull up stakes and take a chance on finding something decent at the other end. If you have a job or are comfortably retired, that's another story.

109 YouTube has a cut from the Dick Cavett show filmed the day after Woodstock. Lots of 60s heavy hitters were there. Stephen Stills in his outlaw Josey Wales poncho blanket plays "4 and 20".

Joni is interviewed, she sounds like a nice nutty lunatic canadian chick. They were re-designing the Canadian flag at the time, and apparently had a contest. David Crosby is a complete twatwaffle.

So yeah, mostly hippie delusions. Joni Mitchell has famously refused to quit smoking cigarettes, so it sounds a bit like "I stand with the medical community" is a little ... selective.

She's also infamous for freaking out about something she claims to have called "Morgellen's disease" or somesuch, some weird unspecified malady that .. Well I dunno, maybe she dropped too many tabs up there in Laurel Canyon

When I lived in Ohio, I had a snow scoop. It was about three feet across with a big double handle. Instead of having to pick up and toss the snow as with a shovel, it was strong enough so I could just push it to the side of the driveway. We had a big driveway and I could get it cleared in an hour.

UTC is the solution to Standard/Daylight Savings Time political foolishness.

I think the conversion over would be somewhat more successful than trying to go metric. Just express the time in UTC. If enough people would do it, then it would be common practice and no more of this Spring Forward / Fall Back nonsense. Just decide what hours you want to sleep, eat and work, find those markers on the clock and go with it.

Would make scheduling meetings a whole lot easier since one doesn't have to rely on the calendar conversions built into the software - just tell everyone spread across six time zones that the meeting is at 1500 hours, let them look at their clock bracelet without the question of whose time zone is being referenced?

There are two reasons for this. The first is that Dems are incredibly tribal because politics has replaced religion. Where their old morals conflict with current Party needs, the morals are changed. So they will always flip if the Party asks it. This is why GOP pointing out hypocrisy to Dems is pointless. They don't care. It is useful to win independents and harden the squishy GOPs, but has zero impact on the Dem Party.

The second reason is that they have a malformed idea of masculinity, which is in fact the "toxic" thing they go on about. Coumo, Clinton, the Kennedys, and now Biden exemplify bragging, bullying men who push women around but promise to keep abortion legal.

They mistake callous cruelty for strength and have for decades.

One could almost argue that as gasoline cools, it contracts and becomes denser.

Also ignore the CDC epidemiologist who admitted last week that cloth and paper face masks provide "negligible" protection from covid.

And especially ignore the huge study that concluded that face masks reduce the risk of covid transmission by a whopping 1.53%. IOW, wearing the mask gives you a 98.5% chance of getting covid, compared to an unmasked person.

And BTW, wearing a face mask for extended periods of time greatly increases the risk of getting gum disease, and gum disease raises your chances of dying from covid by 700%.

So that 1.5% of extra safety is totes worth it, right? LOL

286 One could almost argue that as gasoline cools, it contracts and becomes denser.

So, a very cold quart of gasoline may actually contain more energy than a hot quart of gas.

Solar panels are useful in certain uses. I think they work great as chargers for camping equipment or cell phones, for instance. Better than leaving a battery in a flashlight for months, and not using it until needed. Just not for the big stuff.

While that much measurable energy may be striking a surface, the panel efficiency determines how much of that is converted to electrical energy, which can then be used.

You can look up the density of hydrocarbons against temperature. The greater density in cold is minor compared with that miracle liquid water.

The energy content is also listed in tables of your CRC Handbook. That difference at cold temperatures is also minor, and overwhelmed by the cold containment temperature of cold pipes, etc.

The good news is it takes a bit of energy to compress it to a liquid. That energy, from gas to liquid, is gained back when you ignite itl

Doesn't angle of incidence matter, too (amount of sunlight reflected vs transmitted to the substrate)?

355 Very rough figures:

Peak solar isolation with everything optimized is a bit above 1 kW/sq. m

In Georgia, due to the weather and panel orientation you get about 4 to 4.5 hours a day average of your peak output so if you have a 2 kW array you get about 8 to 9 kW/hrs a day average. On the average a house in Georgia uses 36 kW/hr a day.

Another issue is costs and without tax incentives all on-the-grid green energy is a life cycle loser.
