Work means I won't have time for much other stuff. Certainly plenty of stuff to keep my busy if I did self quarantine. I could always study for my general and get a start on my own shack. I was thinking of seeing a movie but it looks like those are closed also.

 

Work could get interesting. One customer sent in a team to swab the equipment that their product runs on. Could be coincidental, who knows? Many of the ingredients are sourced globally so its possible that could become an issue. I had today off because of an ingredient shortage but thats more likely to be something like a truck having trouble getting over the passes with the storm. 

 

I wonder what they'd say if I called in and said "sorry, I'm old and need to self quarantine" :)

Geez, Bob.  I dunno.

That shelf over the window has no radios hanging from it. Time for another visit to the candy store, doncha think?  :P

Shouldn't you update that rig on the bottom left behind your mic with the callsign? ;)

Just got back from a nice snowshoe hike. They say UV kills viruses. Outside is the place to be!

Ski, how's the snow out there?

Deep and getting deeper. :)

I'll never get rid of the Collins station, although I don't use it very often.  The DX-100 just above the microphone is being replaced by a Collins 32V-3 I'm in process of restoring. All this is what happens when you've been playing with radios for 60 years and never get rid of anything....

Hey-we are back up and have power again-the local co-gen geothermal plant came on line and wonders never cease   Lost power around 930 or so, when the one PG&E power line that usually supplies most of NE Calif was was cut (part of the wonders of living here) somewhere in the Feather River Canyon.  Last year after 20 or so years of bickering,  the co-gen plant (it supplies power to the Nevada grid-not here), Susanville and PG&E signed an agreement with them that allows the co-gen to automatically take over here when the PG&E line goes out. Still lot's of snow here.

Heads up

 

Just heard from my daughter (Canadian citizen) who was trying to cross back into Canada with her boyfriend (US citizen).  They live/travel in a van, and because her boyfriend could not prove "residency" in the USA, they were denied entry.

 

He does have a valid US driver's licence, but had to be able to show rental statement or some other proof of living in some "place" in the USA.

 

Makes me think that those folks who travel/RV it full time may have trouble at the border right now.

I expect Sacramento to jump on the shelter in place bandwagon. Plenty to do around home. If I don't get sick. Idiots at work had a meeting this morning. All of packed like sardines as they read the covid guidelines. They aren't very smart but I guess someone had a light go on as they cancelled the meeting for swing and grave.

Crochet. I just finished a blanket to donate to the Hospice auction, working on a project with some new and difficult techniques, yarn for new blanket on the way (anyone else out there want to geek out on crochet talk?)

 

Starting my veggie garden, trying to solve the wind hazard in the plans for a new greenhouse, cutting and hauling flammable brush out of here.

 

Walking the dog. Playing the guitar. Painting (I can also geek out on watercolor techniques!) 

 

I'll backcountry ski when the weather improves and the avalanche danger is diminished, maybe take my paints on a local camping trip.

 

Retired, natural introvert. Social distancing is my lifestyle. 

 

edit to add: I suppose I could clean and organize my tool shed.

The difference between using derogatory terms to describe someone because you don’t like where they parked and telling the person to “get the **** out of here and never fucking come back” is only quantitative. 

 

 inspired by a quote from Erich Fromm’s “Anatomy of Human Destructiveness”.

Check out the condor cam on the Ventana Big Sur site.The female "Redwood Queen"

has laid an egg on leap day. She also laid one 2 years ago and it was great to watch it

develop.
