Started coming down with some kind of bug late yesterday afternoon and by last night I felt like warmed over death. Woke up at 4:00 AM and had to make a run to the out facilities. No fun at all! Managed to get back to sleep after that and expected to feel as bad this morning as I was last night, but fortunately I feel a little better than then. Not to say I feel good because I don't. I still feel plenty crappy. All this is making me think I need an indoor backup for the It'll Du for cases just like this. Perhaps a plastic liner for the indoor facilities in here? Not room for the potty chair that is still stored in the dungeon.
Today? Its 62 degrees right now and supposed to get to 76. Its partly cloudy or should I say mostly cloudy with high thin clouds which isn't going to be real great for solar. Still no wind to test out the wind genny though. Too bad I don't feel good enough to start working on the storage building again. Would probably be a good day for it.
Wind Genny Update
Looks like using the diodes won't let me save the wind genny after all. There is more than enough wind that it should be putting out a fair amount of juice, but it isn't. It acts like it is in Lock Down Mode which means that there is a direct short somewhere in the system. Its not impossible that it could be in the wiring coming from it, but I suspect that the winding in the generator is fried. Its too windy and I don't feel like setting the extension ladder up to check that so now I guess I'll be waiting for another no wind condition and when I feel a lot better then I do now.
