Alternating Current to Direct Current

Not that anyone cares about this stuff, but I’ve made some nice upgrades to my miniature ham radio base station. No outdoor antennas per the HOA rules, so this is my only solution at the moment, sans installing a vertical antenna in the attic.

It’s Wet!

This is not the usual view around my place, but it’s much better than that white stuff! I hope to get some great photos of the surrounding mountains wearing a fresh coat of that white stuff after these low-pressure systems move out and away.

The Gray Foothills

The distant foothills west of my home are almost completely enveloped in gray clouds as this current low-pressure system works its way through the area. Another low-pressure center will follow on its heels, according to the National Weather Service.

Taking a very short walk this morning, the cold, damp air smelled reminiscent of my Michigan heritage.

It reminds me of standing alone in the wood both as a child and an adult listening to and watching the tall trees sway in unison high above me as though performing a beautiful ballet of nature. I will never escape who I am, nor my northern roots.
