Redoing my rack power feeds since the 2 existing ones are in a really bad location. This is turning out pretty decent. Going to have to abandon the other ones in place since I can't access them but I should be able to cut the cable so I can reuse it. Bringing in 2 solar feeds as well, already ran the wire to a junction box, then it will convert to BX to come down into the rack. Will have 4 feeds total, 2 hydro, 2 solar. Other 2 plugs were just me test fitting but they'll probably stay there as place holders.

They're mounted to a 2x4 which I painted black and screwed to a rackmount shelf. Turned out pretty decent.

Was going to put the plugs ground up, but I might want to plug a killawatt in there to look at power usage so going to go ground down.

Yesterday's pizza: hand-sliced pepperoni, sweet Italian sausage, red onion, yellow onion, green pepper, baby bella mushrooms, black olives, tomato sauce, garlic powder, oregano, fresh grated parmesan, fresh shredded low moisture whole milk mozzarella. Soooo good!

I can get it at Walmart or most any grocery store. I'm no snob. This is just some stick pepperoni. I have tried different brands. So, those peps are hand-sliced. You should check your grocers deli. It's plastic wrapped and not in the cooler.

MIL in hospice past 3 days. Life feels weird, and, of course, pretty sad. A fall lead to 2 vertebrae with burst fractures and a none existent disk. Pain was sky high and she is on heavy pain meds and eating and drinking very little. 😞

I'm sorry to hear about you mother in law. Hopefully the pain drugs will provide some relief. Both of my parents went through hospice and it was, by far, a better choice than attempting last ditch efforts to fix the unfixable. :(

Thanks. And while agreeing with the latter - I’m a bit surprised how taxing it is compared to my father and FIL's passing.

So, she fell while in hospice? Bad enough that you're dying. Sorry mom.

Working from home and was on the phone with a tech, and my cat decided to lick the mic. That probably sounded funny from his end. He didn't say anything but probably wondered WTF that was lol.

Scary how fast life can change. Falls are no joke. I know at least 2 people in my family who had their life completely changed because of fall related injuries. Hopefully things can get better for her.
