Juuly 3, 2009: Running wires for OEM antennas and weather cams

  Jason and Jess came up to the farm this morning at 8 am and we ran a ton of wires.  Not sure how many feet of wire we ran, but it was several miles I would imagine!  I think we got a lot done today, though.  So, that is good! 


  Looks like most of the tower cams on the big tower are ready to be turned on.  Also the emergency management radios are ready to be hooked up to the antennas!  Will still be awhile until we get electricity, though.

  I think we were completely covered in dust when we left.  There is so much dust up there because of all the work going on – the ground has been worked over.  I was HAPPY to get a shower when I got back home.

  There could be a significant outbreak of severe thunderstorms over portions of our region on Saturday.  This is really going to mess with outdoor activities.  Unfortunately it appears that it could be a rather significant event for some counties.  Let’s hope not, though.

  Some of the photos that Jess and I took today –
