Indeed.

We're expecting another nor-easter tomorrow and this one is expected to deliver up to 2' of snow.

Wow!  I was wondering how that was going.  Are you prepared?  All charged up?  Food, booze, water, booze?

Daylight savings time starts again this week again, except for Ecmo.

I guess it will make the shows come on Earlier for him.

I'm here.

I've been rooting around in the fireproof safe, making sure I have all my documents to take to Phoenix for my teaching certificate on Thursday. I may drive out to the west valley and check out a job fair at a school district where an old colleague (whose daughter was my music student from 1st to 8th grade) is now a principal. They just happen to be having the job fair on Friday.

I'm not thrilled about this. Six o'clock is REALLY early, especially in summer.

They have lots of interesting stories associated with the things that they see from Outer Space, but in a lot of the cases, the story is just a red herring.

Have to have herring on New Years for good luck, since it has metallic skin and looks like money, on some level.

I like how they have a laser come out of the microwave reflector of the spacecraft.  Maybe they had a hole through the antenna to let the laser beam blow on through.

I don't understand how a laser would work to change the trajectory. Photons are massless, but have momentum. How would light leave the laser to push against the asteroid without impelling the asteroid device in the opposite direction?

I'm scientifically stupid when it comes to this.
 
2018-03-06 10:27:38 PM  
without impelling the laser device, that is.
