Used the brother label maker to date my latest Eneloops. Didn't have enough lumens in the loft/office w/ the desk lamp and overhead ceiling light, so I fired up the Nitecore EC4SW and ceiling bounced it. Worked fine; labels are nice and straight...
Grand total here was 14" of snow with a nice cap of ice where it turned to rain after sundown.Had my E01 on the nightstand in tailstand mode using a 1+ year old new light sampler battery to vampire it to zero. Light was still on at daylight. So far that's about 10 hours on a used cell. Wife's Solitaire went dark at about 9pm so I hooked her up with a Fenix E12 from mr gurds. I'm looking online for one of those whisper quiet Honda generators and see my local Home Depot had 2 in stock. Another online search showed most of my city was out so I made a beeline there and got the last one. So I'm shoveling a pad for it when I see a snow plow making a path for a power crew. Nice. Sun pops out, power is on and the lizard had made it through the night after we put him in a portable cage setting next to the simmering pot of water. The Mrs and I took 2 hour shifts all night guarding the pot of water. When the heat came back on the house was 54 degrees and falling. We had a thick comforter on the bed and were both sweating under that thing. I put a new cell in the E01 since it was dimming. Yes it does dim some, I'm supposing the regulation cuts off at a point and gives you a Malkoff-esque nice long taper to dim. One of our fish was laying on the bottom of the aquarium at sunrise. When the bubbler started up it began swimming again. This was the third time he was presumed dead. Later I boiled some water to warm up it's home and he's all swimming happily. (I keep spare water prepared for these times.)So tonight we'll tailstand some Maglites in celebration....Edit:FYI for folks opting to buy a Honda generator; they do not have oil in the crank case from the factory and do not come with any so you also need to purchase oil if you don't have any in stock at your home.End edit.
I just had ACL and meniscus surgery two days ago. Thankfully things are going pretty well so far. But I'm using crutches, so my Armytek Wizard Pro Warm headlamp is getting a good amount of use. It sure makes going to the bathroom in the dark easier than trying to hold a flashlight and walk with crutches or turn on the lights and wake up my wife.
I'm supposing it's thinking it's a cat fish (9 lives and all). It's a sail fish whose name is now officially "Fenix" the E01 fish (formerly known as sail fish #1)
