Green is Red

Not something I wanted to see while in Florida. Problems with my brand new Water-Furnace geothermal system. The geothermal heat pump locked-out with a freeze detected in the recirculating loop, and the system switched to emergency electric/resistance heating.

Gone to See Antarctica 2014/5:  Day 13 – At Sea on the Hurtigruten MS Fram in the South Atlantic Ocean

The wind and waves were not as bad as the Hurtigruten MS Fram continued  traveling south and west from South Georgia to Antarctica. Still not many folks were up and around either in the observation deck or in the dining rooms. I didn’t take any sea-sick medication, and was doing fine as long as I kept eating the meals, and could view the horizon. The ship’s musician was playing Procol Harum “A Whiter Shade of Pale” on the piano in observation deck in the background during this short video clip recorded on a Leica T camera.
