Yesterday was a productive day, for the most part. An undergraduate student and I moved two very large tanks from the storage unit off campus to the storage unit on campus. They were a giant pain, but they have been moved.
When we were disassembling them, I wet outside to see how long a drain pipe extended into the desert. (These tanks only contained water). I heard the sound of steam escaping, which is odd, as these tanks were never that hot, had not been under pressure, and had not been used in six years. I heard the steam sound slow to a rattle. It was not steam, but a small rattlesnake! I kept my distance after that.
In the afternoon, I moved an High Performance Liquid Chromatograph (HPLC) and will learn to use it over the next few weeks.
In the evening, I commuted home without event. I updated some of my amateur radio logs, but I am still way behind on these. I also spent some time working on my second novel, though I only added 250 words or so.
Thank you for reading my post.
