Sunday Night Interim Update

Side / backyard of the house on Rogart Rd., Silver Spring, Md., 3:03PM, July 18, 2010.

I sure could use this image for the consumer fact sheet on heating and cooling appliances I am putting together (air source electric heat pumps) at work.


Sorry for the paucity of blog entries in the past four days. I've just been shuffling along slowly ...

Speaking of shuffling ... a lady walks on the sidewalk along 14th Street, NW, near F Street, NW, Washington, D.C., 6:46PM, July 15, 2010.

I was walking home from work (as I occasionally do) when I came across her.


I am planning on a posting a full entry tomorrow (Monday) night, so it should be up by Tuesday morning for my regular readers. I just updated my Arcturus blog. Much of the content will be similar, just reworked and reworded a bit ...

This was a rather good weekend in the end -- although I could have gotten hit in the head with a hatchet blade that flew off its wooden handle, except lucky for me, it flew the other way and landed with a metallic thud a slate stone walkway about two feet from me. I was cutting down a yew bush earlier today at Quill's parents' house in Silver Spring. But I'll write about this and other stuff tomorrow as I want to go to bed now rather than being up until 1AM as I have to get up early to go to work.

So far, work is going well. I think.

We had a loud but short thunderstorm blow through the D.C. area a short while ago, although like the sudden one on Friday night / midnight Saturday, I'm guessing DCA will have gotten its usual 0.01", or maybe just Trace, or maybe even nothing at all.

Here was the deluge as seen from inside Cobalt, R and 17th Streets, NW, Washington, D.C., 11:59PM, July 16, 2010.

While DCA only "officially" got 0.01", I think the Dupont area had about 1 inch in the 20 minute monsoon.


No, I didn't feel the rare earthquake that struck the area Friday morning at 5:04AM (I was still sound asleep), but I know a lot of people who did. It registered 3.6 on the Richter magnitude scale.

I'll make that a bumper sticker for my hybrid plug in - electric vehicle.
