After two days of idle dawdling (HA!) I am back at school. The building’s transformer is not yet repaired, so they’re powering Jones Hall with a huge-o-mondo generator. This thing is half the size of a semi-trailer truck, and has a dozen or so 1-1/2″ cables running from it to the building. It’s a rather noisy object, but it’s on the other side of the building (outside of the welding labs and the loading dock) so the sound shouldn’t bother anyone. I don’t know if it runs on gasoline or diesel, but whatever it is it’s probably costing the college a pretty penny to run it. Even though it was nice to be home and get some chores done, it’s nice to be back at school, back in the routine.
I wish I’d had that generator during the ice storm!
