I was creating my post yesterday, attempting to chronicle the windy conditions that followed the snow. Along with the wind was the threat of power loss as lights and appliances in our house blinked and chirped. Then my browser crashed and took my entry along with it. Incidentally, except for the few times the lights blinked, power persisted.
Oh well. This morning the radio was tuned in to a local station that had Alan Boss, the author of “The Crowded Universe: The Search for Living Planets” as a guest. It was such an unexpected conversation that I thought that I might have changed the station unexpectedly. Quite a nice surprise. I’ll have to read up on the Kepler telescope.
