Fantastic day here in the north, sunny and clear. Hot and humid later, but probably not as hot and humid as Houston. I’ll find out when I get home.
Met with the electrician yesterday. Our next step is to talk to the provider, a co-op, and determine how much capacity we can get, schedule, etc.
He’s proposed a couple changes that would let us do the work for the service and the septic, while taking longer to do the work on the grounding and outbuildings. All the old will come out, and new will go in. Except for wiring inside the house, that will stay but have grounds added, I think. He’s pretty sure we’ll find the buried electrical when we start trenching for the septic 😛
Oh yeah, when I fired up the mower a huge doe ran across the yard. She looked pretty panicked. Did I mention she was huge? Mmmmm, tasty deer…
Watered the garden. No sign of raiders yet, but no shoots either.
I’ve got a couple of things to do here today before I can leave. I need to remove the paneling around the current breaker panels so the electrician can see what he’s working with to land in the new panel, and I’d like to plant one more row of salad veg, with some squash, pumpkin, and watermelon. That may not get done, if it’s hot or if I run out of time.
Gas was $4 at costco and there were weekend long lines at 1pm on Thursday. I saw it as high as $4.39 at the HEB next to the freeway. My 260 mile round trip costs double what it did a year ago.
Refilling all my hurricane gas storage will HURT this year.
Stash some stuff, stack some more stuff.
