One thing about having professional packers, packing your house: lots and lots of packing paper. So far, about three, 3ft piles of compressed flat sheet paper. Recycle trip today 😉

Luckily, someone wanted moving boxes and they have taken what we already unpacked.

So far, the New England summer has been tolerated by dual zone cooling (2 compressors, 2 furnaces), knowing that if the power goes out, we have a 20kw “whole house” natural gas-fired generator to keep it cool. (Which also keeps the wine cellar temp controlled).

More on the pressure flow for this storm coming in the pacific Northwest. Watch the pressures drop and drag that cold air int from Canada.

This looks worse for us here in Oregon than I had anticipated. Grib files are the schiznic. (If you want to look at these files, get Mac program called LuckyGrib. There is an IOS version, too, so “gribbing” on your iPad is cool.

Got a Nespresso and am loving it. It is the newer technology with the various size pods. So nice to have an espresso or a nice strong coffee after lunch without the mess of setting up an espresso maker. Plus, George Clooney will be happy when he visits.

Friday was my birthday. I wanted it to be a low key event. I did not do work that day, which is unusual, as I haven’t had a day off in a long while. My wife got me some really nice gifts. She is awesome. All in all, another year around the sun, complete. Now back to life.

Yesterday, I received my Luna Display. This one is USB-C based. Plugged it into my rMBP, and hooked a USB-C to Lightning cable to my 12.9″ iPad pro, and now I have a nice 2 screen setup for when I am out of office. Performance is damn good. http://www.lunadisplay.com.
