    Re: RCMC # 133 The Road Goes On Forever And The Party Never Ends

    Aww.... glad you did! And hope we see you here again once in a while as time permits!!!

    And.... somewhere between 4:30 and 5 this morning... the phone rang.

    Yup. Headed to the hospital after school. I'll have just enough time to come home, change, hit Starbucks and head over.



    Don't wanna but there is no one else to do it. There are only 5 techs, one called in sick today, one is in school himself, the night person has to come back tonight (and she's staying over until I can get there) and the one other person didn't answer the phone.

    Well... at least its a few more hours on the paycheck.

    Stupid phones, beckon for your attention and demand that you do something.

    Well.... not a bad day considering.... but tired. Eating a tuna sandwich I didn't eat for lunch while I peek at computer things. Have some school papers I need to work on if I have the brain power to do it.

    Will peek in again in a few.

    Hopefully.

    I did it, didn't even notice. Now I'm sad I didn't save it for the best thread with you guys.

    New plant. Used to be just sagebrush......

    This one is fairly small, it has only one generator; 22,500,000 watts. It'll produce about 18,000,000 watts with all the other equipment running.

    Enough for about 8,000 houses.

    It takes roughly 30,000 horsepower to turn the generator, and about 90,000 foot-pounds of torque. To put this in perspective, if a bar, similar to a crane boom were attached to the shaft, and it was 20' long, it'd lift a car off the ground. If the bar were 200' long, it'd lift 2 or 3 people off the ground.

    Awww.... thats ok... we know you love us!

    Taking work home with you, for shame.
    I know I know.... I refuse to do extra for the hospital. But I don't mind working on schedule matrix printouts and student lists for the school because it helps me out and I actually enjoy doing it.

    Even though spreedsheets drive me stark raving nuts....

    Hey Rob! Wow... lots of power....

    Nanners Jim!!! Get some rest and try to keep cool! Hopefully the humidity will go away soon even though I'm looking forward to more rain!

    Is it powered by a gas turbine? I think you had said so, but it sounds like it now.

    Re: RCMC # 133 The Road Goes On Forever And The Party Never Ends

    Chicago had 90+ temperatures the last two days. I am glad that it will only be in the 80's today, and that I can stay indoors.

    I woke up thinking about my older brother today. He passed away in 1994. I often think of "what if's, and the fun we missed together because he died so young. We were not that close as children, but when we got older we found out just how much alike we really were.

    My bathroom is about 1/2 painted, and today I will get busy working on that second half.

    Happy Wednesday to all of you.

    Yes!!! My phone did not ring!!!! Happy dance only one job today!!

    Not sure what our weather will be. Suppose to have a chance of some more storms off and on all week. It was hot and HUMID yesterday...

    Ah... all the what ifs of life. One of the RN's and I were talking about that at lunch yesterday... all the choices we make in life, and how, if we had made a different choice things in our life might be different.

    And the clock marches on.
