    Summer 2019 New England Banter and Disco

    The business that chik fil a does in CT is insane. They are always packed. I heard from a friend that the new 2 floor one in Norwalk brings in 6 figures every week in sales. They absolutely destroy every other fast food place in service and I heard they pay employees way more money than other places. When Wallingford opened years ago they had cops directing traffic for months after they opened.

    One of the reasons I am done with fossil fuels especially gas/propane. Soo many explosions seem to be happening these days. I converted my whole house to eveything electric and have solar panels so my electricity is free. Just installed another cold weather heat pump and plan on using no fossil fuels this winter for heating. I will be using thermodynamics pumping heat from outdoors into my house at 470% efficiency burning zero fossil fuels.

    SNE "Tropical" Season Discussion 2019

    There was an aerial plane survey done after the 38 hurricane. Pages 12-14 have some of the RI coastline. That area got hit hard. http://cslib.cdmhost.com/digital/collection/p4005coll10/search/searchterm/Aerial survey!index sheet!1938/field/title!title!title/mode/exact!none!exact/conn/and!and!and/order/title/ad/asc

    Some potential tonight for a possible viewing.

    Its downright scary how many people I know that have gotten lyme in the last few years. The numbers are certainly rising rapidly.

    Heavy heavy lawn thread 2019

    There is no stopping it from what I have read. Billions of native ash will be wiped out. Only hope is to create new ash strains resistant to eab and introduce those into the wild. I believe they did something similar with elm trees where they created a Dutch elm disease resistant tree.

    Is Emerald Ash Borer up there yet? I would start treating it if you intend to keep it. I have been keeping mine alive by soil drench with insecticide. Cost like 5 bucks to treat it yourself with the same stuff the pros use thats available online. The ash are pretty close to wiped out here in CT. Here was an ash stand I drove by today. There are whole tracts all over the state that look like this. It looks terrible.

    Can you please post a dew above chart for NOLA... I work outside in the telecom/cell phone industry and NOLA is where I am headed Sun night.

    Thermodynamics... I am going all in on air source heat pumps for both heating and cooling. Combined with solar panels I am going to attempt to not burn any fossil fuels this winter... Under the principles of vapor compression refrigeration, an ASHP uses a refrigerant system involving a compressor and a condenser to absorb heat at one place and release it at another. Air at any temperature above absolute zero contains some energy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_source_heat_pumps

    This has been an epic summer for solar production. My panels have been running close to peak efficiency almost every day this month so far. CT has good incentives but those in MA with good sun exposure should install them. MA is currently the #1 state with the best solar incentives and payback period.

    Was just going to post that as well. Wonder if any planes went into it while landing. There have been many terrible large casualty accidents with planes landing and encountering microburst's. Though I think now they must have some sophisticated technology to avoid it. Like onboard radar or something.
