    I like to raft but I'm not in a group of friends that does it... I took kayaking during college to learn to read rivers and such but once I moved out here other things took priority

    So I put it in. Weather was great today for this, not happy about the forecast.
    Since it's intermission...
    Was surprisingly easy to slide it over.


    Right at 7

    Test fit.

    Made up some cables, 8ga wire.

    1st attempt at wiring it, the smaller set with the blue plug is for thev truck charge circuit.

    Did not like the posts and wiring being out there to catch on shit (the shovel rides in there too)

    So i turned that shit show around and tidied things up a bit.

    Much better.
    It's blocked in all 4 sides and won't slide.

    My terminal blocks inside the battery box.

    Battery box is also the new home for my leveling blocks since they used to ride where the new battery is.


    And the old house battery is now truck battery as the other one is dated 2017 and the recent drainings didn't do it any good.
    This one is only a year or two old.

    Not super happy with the wiring here, the posts need to sit to the rear. I'll have to revisit this and unfuck it. Or maybe it'll just be the way it is.

    They haven't made it past round two for the last three seasons.
    That being said, it's only game two. Shit is gonna heat up from here.

    The drizzly rain was delightful today.

    The snow has already felled several large limbs on/around my property and there's one hanging ominously over my power line that I can't do anything about at this point. I suspect I'll be without power by morning.

    So yeah, rain.

    Yep, on the west side.

    My power has actually been very reliable for the ~2 years that I've lived here. A few flickers during weather, but never totally out.

    There have been some large-scale outages in the city (just not affecting my house) due to severe weather events knocking trees down. A few days with 70-90+mph winds, and this weekend's late-season snow. Heavy wet snow on top of trees that are already full of leaves means there are limbs down all over.

    I have power at the moment but the flashing clock on my microwave tells me I lost it at some point. The limb I had my eye on last night is still up there, still threatening to drop at any time. The snow's supposed to keep falling most of the day.

    you guys got hammered. It's sunny and clear here with no snow. Kind of disappointed.

    Stuff. Also things.
    Holy buckets!

    We only ended up with maybe a couple inches of the slushiest snow I’ve seen in a minute.

    Had to go out and shake the snow off a couple of our younger trees that had already leafed out. Didn’t lose any limbs, so all is well.

    Been seeing some ads for Polygon. Look like an Australian company that expanded to the US? Some mid travel full suspension bikes for around $1400. Anyone here have one?
