    Electric vehicles during a disaster

    Here on the Texas coast, people sometimes have to evacuate up to 200+ miles, not all because of the storm, but availability of hotel rooms or shelters. It gets gridlocked bad. Cell phone usage is just a trickle of normal. People evacuate with food, water, full gas cans, clothing.

    Electric vehicles during a disaster

    For those backing up the grid, they should repay y'all the same peek demand rates they charge you, and drop the basic hookup fees. Not the wholesale rate. It saves them a fortune not having to build more plants. They could raise the peak demand rates to the users to cover their transmission...

    Per minute? No storage tank needed? WOW! Usually filtration will slow down those rates. I don't think my bathtub will flow but maybe 3-4 gallons a minute at 60psi water pressure.

    Good morning!!!!

    Funny thing you ask, besides milling some Laser sintering build plates to clean them up for another build, I'll hopefully make some programs to show off the current technology available on cnc mills to a bunch of people. There will be work for it. I'll be supervising, and visualizing/checking...

    Electric vehicles during a disaster

    In Austin, when summer hit hard early (May), the grid was hitting max levels. They were asking people to conserve, up their thermostats, etc. The radio talk show brought up the topic of charging cars when you typically get home from work at 5-6pm. Many different aspects were brought up...

    Good morning!!!!

    Sounds like your stepson could give PJs stepson some good competition. Roy, hope you get better soon. My CNC mill proposal went to the top and they are going to buy it! Now the hard work of making room for it. It is a made in USA, Has VF3SS with a 5 axis rotary tilting table. I'm still...

    Electric vehicles during a disaster

    I live near Hwy 290, about 100 miles inland from Houston Texas. 290 is a mass exodus route from Houston, it is stupid grid locked for 150 miles all the way from Houston to Austin. So traffic is not flowing, stop and go, bumper to bumper. They have the national guard trying to help stranded...

    Good morning!!!!

    Since we had the internet dish replaced, the TV antenna got pointed away from proper direction. I got up there and used Duo facetime with wifey to perfect the signal. I'm starting to NOT like climbing on roofs. I think my trifocal progressive glasses mess me up too much. Speaking of glasses...

    Who’s cutting hay?

    How long have you had your Vermeer504N? A friend bought one, to use on a 50hp tractor, and it works good, but as with most all used equipment, he's had to put a lot of bearings and some other parts in it. Needs a couple of belts repaired now.

    Good morning!!!!

    That buggar is quick! I looked at the Car and Driver writeup and it says the curbweight is over 7000lbs. Wow! For reference, a Ford F 150 is less than 5000lbs. So I'm amazed that with all the extra weight, that it is so fast. Impressed. I hope it serves him well. I have seen one drive...

    Good morning!!!!

    Thank you, and Mostly too for the prayers. BEF, how do you get anything done being held down by that kitty? I must admit, I've been catching up since Wednesday late, on posts. WE GOT SOME RAIN! Maybe .1 on Monday and .5" on Wednesday, a trace yesterday. Ground has soaked it all up. Our...
