Plants prepped for a cold snap...

My big oldest living tomato plant sprung back to life after I thought it had been killed in the last freeze. Fired up my spare "MrHeater" to hopefully keep the plants cozy.  30,35,32, .05,B

First rain?

Good chance of some road wrecking weather coming up.  Been seeing a lot of daily traffic lately.  Wondering how many of them are aware of what happens when it rains out here.  Any bets on how many vehicles will get stuck?  45,65,48,0,B

motor madness...

Hooking up and synchronizing a second stepper off a single ESP8266 microcontroller went surprisingly well.  Still ran into a few idiosyncrasies that made no sense - but found work arounds.  50,64,24,0,B

stepper motor hell...

Fought with this all day and finally figured out (I think...) how to get it to cooperate with the micro controller and software.  Pretty frustrating when you try sample code exactly - and things don't work.  Tomorrow I try to get a second motor running off the same controller and coordinate their movement.  47,54,33,0,B
