Cold and wet this am. Still no new battery for my weather station. I feel like some pre-scientific peasant. “Ugg, cold.” On the other hand, weatherunderground shows several of my neighbors reporting 44F and 45F. From sensors in the yard via radio to the house, then uploaded to the internet, then combined onto a zoom-able map in real time, for me to see on my computer after a round trip of hundreds if not thousands of miles…. all pretty near instantaneously. AND NOT provided, provisioned, or purveyed by the government. SF writers got that wrong.
Plenty to do today.
The world continues to hurtle toward the brink…
but my kids need breakfast, clean clothes, and hugs, so I better get busy.
