Here I am, on the Job.  I’m documenting the information for those fans in the back of the ice house so that we can upgrade them to a more efficient style.  Good times in rural California!

This is Truckee, CA on May 10th.  There is 5″ of fresh snow outside my house right now, and an additional 2-3″ that is supposed to fall tonight.  All I have to say is 😦 😦 😦 I want summer!

Banana Slug!

Banana Slug!

Here is a friend that I made whilst screwing in light bulbs at a mountain resort about a week ago.  He measures a respectable 7 inches long- he is a strapping young lad, isn’t he?!  His relatives used to crawl up through the drains into Debs’ sinks, bath tubs and toilets when she was a student at UC-Santa Cruz (their mascot is the Banana Slug).  I was tired and wet and was feeling anxious about all the solid waste we were creating by switching out the light bulbs, but he seemed perfectly content, enjoying the rain and his beautiful surroundings.
