I woke up about three o’clock in the morning feeling much better but couldn’t sleep any more so I got a cup of soup and worked on sorting my music files. Outside was a great aurora and if it was still there when I finish my soup I will go out and photograph it. Of course it buggered off. I managed to get back to sleep about six o’clock and woke around ten and got up, did some washing, had a shower and something to eat. I actually washed this load three times as I kept forgetting about it and it would dry in the washing machine so I would restart it again and again.
I had an EME sked at two o’clock with Rob in New Zealand but we had no successes. It was a really grey windy shitty sort of day that was hard to keep warm, then I realised the heater had gone off in last night’s power outage and it was only six degrees in the room. Keldyn, Cookie, Peter L and Darron have gone to Macey hut for the weekend in the orange Hag. I bet it must be cold out there? When the power went off last night it has taken a couple of our servers out, so no file server or Intranet at the moment. I need to put a UPS on my radio PC as it had gone off in the power outage also. What else could possibly go wrong?
I was thinking about organising a trip out to Welsh Island and Béchervaise Island but the way this wind is blowing now I don't think it would be much fun. Lets see what it looks like in the morning.
