Phyllis and I just finished getting ready for Hurricane Lee. All going well, we will only get tropical storm-force winds here, but who knows, particularly since we are in the dangerous semicircle.
We could also get some pretty nasty surge out of this, but AAC World Headquarters is up a sheltered inlet and 75 feet above high water.
Anyway, we may be off the air for a few days due to power and internet being down, particularly since the ground is saturated from recent rains, which makes trees more unstable, and the leaves are still on, which doesn’t help either—downed trees are the primary reason for power and internet failures around here.
As soon as both come back we will publish the first of two parts on replacing diesel fuel for electrical generation with renewables: solar, wind and hydrogeneration.
That said, Lee, together with being away for several days to attend a late friend’s memorial service, mean we will be an article short in September. However, if memory serves, that’s the first miss in two years. Fewer tips this month too.
Wishing everyone in the path of Lee, or any other tropical nasty, all the best.
