Anyway, as can be seen, yet another of God's Wrath has failed to wipe me from this earth.  But two and a half days without power (and thus blessed a/c)... it came close.


No power/no AC sucks.  Glad you're still with us to tell the tale.

I could live without A/C for a couple days a lot more easily than I could live without internet.

Re: leavetaking
Depends on where you are ... Dareos is in Phoenix I think ... A/C there is a greater necessity.

I was tempted to skip getting online today.  But I'm too dog tired* to bother moving all my furniture about (long-term plan**)... so I"m lazying about online instead.

* 2 nights with pretty much no sleep + busted my ass doing clean-up yard work in the sun all day.
** Work is still without power so I have tomorrow off.  I'll move all my furniture about then.

I'm in Orlando, FL.  Hot as balls down here.

LOL ... PHX was 110 today ... It's not hot until the polish melts off your shoes.

Re: leavetaking
Let's not forget that 95 in Orlando is hotter than 110 in Phoenix.  Humidity is a bitch.

LoL... haven't been to Phoenix I see ... land of canals (draining the Colorado River into drinking water etc.) and swimming pools, well watered lawns. It's not 90% humidity, but it sure makes the place damnably uncomfortable. I've lived in the 95 & 95% ... it's unpleasant too, but Phoenix is it's own little hell. Still don't understand why people live there.

We make jokes about people coming out of work in the afternoon to find their car overheating ... people have been known to park a mile or more from a door, just to park in some shade.

Yeah, like any place that's at least somewhat inhospitable, it takes the right kind of person to endure it.
120 degree heat for a month or so doesn't bother me much (I don't work outdoors though), and we're not prone to any of the other natural catastrophes while still having the benefit of being a huge city.
I can hit Disneyland, the ocean, Mexico, Las Vegas, AZ Snowbowl, or Lake Havasu in a few hours if I wanted to.

Re: leavetaking
I once drove through Arizona on my way from Socorro, NM to Los Angeles (actually to the I-40/I-5 interchange, a little east of LA).  I think we went past Phoenix, but if we got off the freeway, it was for gas or lunch -- and it was in October.  Nights outside Socorro had been cool enough to call for a coat the two days previous.

So, no, the way you mean, I haven't been to Phoenix.

Neither does Arizona really.

Re: leavetaking
No, I was visiting for the Enchanted Skies star party in 1998.  Had my barely-finished home built 8" Dobson Newtonian in the back of my van, going home from a serendipitous side-by-side comparison with a 10" Schmidt-Cassegrain (mine gave identical view, took a bit longer to put on target than the computer controlled big money unit), when I rolled past Phoenix.

Re: leavetaking
Thanks Ardenas... nothing worse than Cold Ogres.  I think things are better now... have my wife back from the Hospital ... no more 100 mile each way drives, thank God. What could have been horrible is merely a small adjustment to meds... a Blessing to be sure!

Re: leavetaking
A small adjustment to meds could be a major emergency, if it isn't done promptly and correctly.  My partner is dependent on meds, too, though we're seemingly a lot closer to medical care.  That's offset by a doc who seems to completely not care...

Re: leavetaking
Thanks all; We have closer medical care ... but when you show stroke symptoms, you get medivac'd to the big city hospital's really quickly. It's quite complex, with several things in confluence causing the problem, but a slight adjustment should prevent any further issues, we and the Neurologists think/hope.

Re: leavetaking
I'm travelling in europe for the next couple of weeks

I expect to be online enough to post regularly, but if i slow down then that is the reason.
Feel free to just NPC HAveron if he's holding anything up and i'll make posts as and when possible.
