Winter is Here!

Yesterday’s forcast that the Northeaster would switch from rain to snow after midnight Saturday was wrong. It started snowing here a little after 8 AM. The trees still have leaves, and I have seen many branches coming down. The power has been going on and off — and is now off. Running on battery backup right now — will probably end up moving into the RV until power is restored. Images to follow.

Day 12 and Counting

My Drobo disk-array is rebuilding after adding a new drive. Don’t know how long it will take. New images to follow. The down side to large storage solutions such as Drobo is the time required for backup and restore. Not sure how many days this will take!!!!
