Hurricane Sandy Aftermath: Day Eight and Election Day.

Power lines still down and roads in my neighborhood are still closed. I have power, but others still don’t. PSE&G folks are working, but still a lot to do.

Drobo update. The 3 TB drive that I added to the Drobo disk array completed the disk protection process. Unfortunately, and not clear in the documentation — I need to add another 3 TB drive and wait for the disk protection process (24+ hours) before the additional space is available. So the warning is that if you have a fully populated Drobo, you will need to add 2 new drives (one at a time) to get more space. In my case this will take 2-4 days. On the positive side, I have access to all my data — but on the negative side, data access during the upgrade is slow.

I am a scientist by training (Eckerd College, BSc; Caltech, Ph.D.). I worked for 27 years as a Chemist in the Pharmaceutical Industry developing processes to manufacture medicines for human and animal health. I now spend my time as a photographer updating images in My Image of the Day Photoblog, and My eBird (with images of nearly 450 bird species). hope post COVID-19 to be a world traveler again. My interests include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, sky, and seascapes, travel, and astrophotography. I look for unique ways of viewing the world and presenting my images. I have traveled to over 55 countries in six continents, often on Semester at Sea voyages. While at home in New Jersey, I spend time on home renovation and expansion of a wildflower garden/meadow.
