My second time....hmmm. Not bad at all....

Some random thoughts:

-----------------------------------

I know weather and global warming are two different things but today sure makes one wonder. Twenty-eight below zero F at 6 am with a wind chill of 45-50 below zero. Blowing, drifting snow. Misery index is off the charts here in Iowa. My solar cells are pumping out 20% of rated power despite the brilliant sun thanks to the ice crystals and wind. My Geothermal is still pumping at 56 degrees F. My new vertical wind turbine is running at rated power. Still the furnace is burning gas to keep up. My passive solar system is not producing as much heat as it normally does, probably due to the ice crystals and blowing snow.

I played truth or dare with my neice over Christmas, she's 14. She asked some humdingers. She asked a truth about my second time, ignoring the first altogether. Who remembers their second time? I had to give that some thought. When I did, I realized how much better it was than the first time (satisfaction wise) but funny, I really had to think hard about it! The power of a girls mind and her willingness to project fairytales over reality hid the truth.

Politically glad to see George Bush leave office. Not because I am against him but because I am tired of seeing him kicked around by our media, our politicians and our citizens. Truly a shame what people believe about him versus what is closer to reality. (see above passage)

Dogs don't like to go  outside when it is this cold. Could you imagine taking a pee in temps like this? Mine are using the front porch and nothing says welcome like a frozen yellow patch and well you know...

Peace!
