Well, I did move to Arkansas …. 😁

I worked a bit for a pipe mill. Hired for electrical work, never had any connection to the trade until the last few months.

I posted some pics here of some wildly illegal installs there. They were most annoyed when the pics were brought to managements attention. My only duty at the end was adding timers to those heaters — which gave me the opening to make the installs code compliant. Task done, my services were no longer desired.

At that point I was ready to retire. Did a minor bit of inspection work for an operation that was a joke. Decided to focus on my house remodel and family issues. Suffice it to say I’ve been to plenty of funerals.

Last December 10 (2021) I looked at the radar — and immediately called a friend in the countryside with a warning. Ten minutes later her house was completely flattened by a Cat 4 tornado. She had another house 20 miles away that she occasionally rented out. Nice to have a spare!

Alas, scrappers got n and removed the wires and plumbing. So I’m back to work.
