Some Weather!

As Civil Engineers, we rely on weather data to predict large rain events in order to design proper drainage.  Much of that data is provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or NOAA.  There’s all sorts of useful data and information on their website, but one of my favorites is the National Weather Service National Radar Mosaic.  This groups together all of the the local RADAR stations in to one large animated radar map.  This is particularly useful on a day like today!  Click the photo below to check it out.


Mushroom House?

It appears that someone has figured out a way of creating a building material out of mushroom roots that grow themselves in place.  While we haven’t gotten many (or any) calls to permit a subdivision for a new sustainable mushroom village, things have been heating up in the residential housing market.  This means this summer has been quite busy with perc tests, planning board meetings, and septic system inspections.  But with new products, technology, and building methodologies, who knows what the future holds?

Anyone remember THIS:

Homeless man’s funeral

Since I’m sure we’re all still reeling from the Patriot’s recent loss, here’s a bit of humor one of our clients sent to us to cheer us up…

BurialVault

As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper’s cemetery in the Nova Scotia back country.  As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost on the way and, being a typical guy, I didn’t stop for directions. I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the grave-diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch. I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn’t know what else to do, so I started to play.

 

The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I’ve never played before for this homeless man. And as I played Amazing Grace, the workers began to weep. They wept; I wept, we all wept together.

 

When I finished, I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full. As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, “I never seen nothing like that before… and I’ve been putting in septic tanks for twenty years.

 

Apparently I’m still lost…
