Winter Storm GIA -- January 13, 2019; Meanwhile In Austria: Ten Feet Of Snow In 48 Hours; More On The Way

Updates

February 1 2019: the cover and the table of contents for the January 26 - February 1, 2019, issue of The Economist. It is my thesis that The Economist suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome. I made the comment some time ago that if one had not business magazine other than The Economist one would think there is nothing else going on in the world other than the Trump presidency. I don't even recall many articles on "Brexit." This issue continues to prove the point. I did not find the word "Brexit" on the cover or in the table of contents, but certainly a lot related to Trump:





January 21, 2019: the cover and the table of contents for the January 5 - January 11, 2019, issue of The Economist.This was about the time Brexit and Theresa May were coming a head, first with the parliament voting against May's Brexit bill and thus triggering a "no-confidence" vote. May survived that vote. This issue of The Economist does not mention the word "Brexit" on the cover or in the table of contents, save for a lone letter to the editor. My impression of The Economist remains unchanged from the original post.



Original Post

I see ISO New England spiked to $115/MW earlier this evening.

***************************
Sunday Night Reading

Readers may want to scan the headlines over at zerohedge before the week begins and we start getting inundated with fake news from US media outlets, and anti-American op-eds from The Economist. I don't subscribe to The Economist (a British weekly) but I generally scan a copy every week. If that's all one had to read, one would get the feeling that the only country with any economic challenges is the US. I don't recall much being written about Brexit.

Austria Ski Slopes -- Too Much Snow

We were stationed overseas for thirteen consecutive years -- my wife says it was fourteen consecutive years. Most of those years were in continental Europe or in England. Every winter we went skiing in the Alps, either in Germany or in Switzerland.

Austria was particularly remarkable.

Now this, in today's news, from iceagenow:


Great memories. If I had all the money in the world, I would have a house in the Boston, MA, area and a house in Yorkshire, England. We would go skiing every winter in Austria. Or maybe we would just enjoy gl├╝hwein in front of the fireplaces inside the chalets, watching the younger skiers.

*****************************
Movin' On Out

From zerohedge:


Native North Dakotans are all moving to Phoenix.

Look at the "gainers": Nevada; Idaho (maybe more on this later); Arizona; South Carolina; Colorado; Delaware (interesting); North Carolina; Oregon; and, Florida. Montana is up there, also. What the table does not show is that the folks that move are the folks that can afford to move. Note where NY and California fall on the curve.

***********************
Amazon Echo Dot

I'm having a blast with Alexa. And, yes, we now "subscribe" to Amazon Music Unlimited. My wife does not know that yet, that I am listening to AMU for thirty days free to see what it is like, but she keeps coming in to tell me how wonderful Amazon Music / Echo Dot is. Something tells me I will continue to subscribe after the introductory free period.

Yes, it's worth it.

 And So It Goes

A couple of years ago when visiting Grand Canyon National Park, our daughters came across these old "ATT shells." I do not recall if they knew what they were -- or if I explained the shells to them. Can't recall.

But for the archives. Olivia,  using the old landline to talk to her older sister using her wireless phone.

Pocahontas Grabbing (A) Fire-Water -- Worst Stereotype In Memory -- January 13, 2019

The White House must be reading the blog. About a week ago, I posted this:

January 8, 2019, T+63, day 18: a reader suggested that Pocahontas swigging beer on social media is as bad a stereotype of the native American as one could imagine.

Now, from twitter this evening:

At YouTube:

The Great Gatsby trivia never ends. Ms Corrigan has enough to last a lifetime in So We Read On: How The Great Gatsby Came To Be and Why It Endures, Maureen Corrigan, c. 2014.

One aspect of The Great Gatsby: the tangible fixation with cars.

Notably, and I had not seen this elsewhere, Jordan Baker, the golfer and close friend of the Buchanans, has the namesake of the Jordan sports car and the electric Baker. Great cocktail chatter.

Random Update Of The Enerplus Softshell Well -- January 13, 2019

This post will not be updated.

This well has been featured many, many times on the blog.
This well has been producing since 2015. It has plateaued to 5,000 bbls/month. It will produce for 35 years, maybe a hundred. Some North Dakota Madison wells with much less production are celebrating their 65th birthday this year. Just saying. Recent production for this well:

Wow, Sophia and I have fun together. Everyday is a great day. No matter how many times we visit this little creek, Sophia never gets tired of watching the frogs, the turtles, the very, very small fish.

Ah, Yes -- Just Another Holy Day In DC -- January 13, 2019

Almost a million government employees and untold thousands of government contractors not being paid because Shelosi won't even negotiate. Trump has offered numerous concessions, including a path to citizenship for "Dreamers" and still Shelosi won't negotiate.

It is unlikely that those million government employees missed the headline story that the largest group ever of Democratic congressmen and women flew to Puerto Rico over the weekend for the winter vacation, leaving just in time to escape one of the biggest winter storms to hit the US in recent years, Winter Storm Gia.
