for railroad relation - it’s why d700 works WMI when Amtrak doesn’t get stuck. take the same pipe and try to spread the load out throughout the day.

petroleum use has leveled off a bit though. in general, electrity use is increasing. energy companies trying to limit peak usage has always been a thing. like how they’d rather companies stagger start times so the interstates see less rush hour traffic. same thought process. it isn’t stupid.

I’m quite sure energy production does increase most years. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_ ... mption.svg

@ ~Z~ « Mon 3:06:57 pm »
oh, i think it’ll just continue to be normal to try to encourage people to use their electricity less between 2-7pm as that’s a fairly high usage time. Run the dishwasher at night, run the dryer overnight. I try to do those things anyway at night as I’d rather not heat my house more when i’m already paying too much for air conditioning.

don’t believe they are converting west olive to natural gas...they are just closing the plant.
@ J T « Mon 2:37:30 pm »
So when they convert West Olive to natural gas, will Consumers no longer have to ask us to use less electricity between 2-7pm during the summer months?
@ ~Z~ « Mon 1:38:20 pm »
too bad natural gas has been increasing a lot as well though, but at least coal is on the downward slope. Wish we'd see an upswing in nuke production.
@ ~Z~ « Mon 1:37:40 pm »
neato, as of the end of 2020, renewables in the US (wind, solar, hydro) now has a larger amount of energy produced than either coal or nuke. https://www.commondreams.org/views/2021 ... or-nuclear

Box culvert under I-96 at Montcalm should be 14 feet wide by 10 high for bikes. There sure is a lot of graffiti inside it.

The locals made quick work of those. Pretty much open to anyone willing to ignore the road ends sign now. Probably not high clearance though. Guessing around 10’ RDD might know for sure.

Used to be blocked by cement bollards so only bikes pedestrians etc could use it.

The clock is certainly ticking. Mrs Jet is recovering nicely and I’m on vacation days for a few weeks so I should be able to get it done.

I checked before we went out, no rain on the forecast. Nothing on the radar. LOL. So much for that

It started thunder, lighning and raining pretty heavy about an hour after we came in from outside.

We threw an old queen mattress on the ground. It was actually comfy

But I’m not staying out by myself either lol.

I want to do that with my kids at some point soon but it’s probably going to have to be next summer at this point. The back yard is still a mess after rebuilding the deck and the work that needs to be done I don’t want to do in the summer heat so it’s waiting until fall.
