Holy Crap! I've been BoingBoinged!!

So yesterday I get an email from my friend Shawn at Make Magazine. She says she is a quest blogger at Boingboing and can she mention me and my website....I say sure. Next thing you know...I come home tonight and find a message from my brilliant/demented friend Brett Doar congratulating me on getting Boingboinged. This blog has gotten over 2800 views so far today. That being said.....Howdy, ya'll!!

The big full moon woke me up this morning at 5:15AM. Somehow the early morning hours drifted away and the next thing you now - it's 10:30. It was COLD at sunrise this morning....18 degrees. Tried another time lapse, this time of the full moon setting. The sky was too bright by the time it went down over the horizon so no show today. Warmed up to almost 70 degrees today.

Plugged away at my welding till 6PM....Finished tower 1 and 90% of tower 2. These "towers" are for my driveway entrance. Perfect platforms for future wind sculptures, flags, solar lights, ranch signage, propane flame throwers, ect... Will finish up tomorrow and trailer them home in the afternoon. Hope to plant them in concrete early this week. Another cold night ahead but expecting a sunny high of 75 degrees tomorrow.

Just saw your blog through my daily search at Boing Boing. Thought maybe you'd be interested in this wind/solar setup should you try for your own water supply.

Fame is a dangerous animal. Your project is cool, though. ;)

Looking forward to reading all your posts and maybe looking at how I can use some of your ideas when I build my house!
