Outages are never fun.
Well, it looks as if this blog was down for most of March 3.
It was initially reported to me by a friend on Twitter and when I followed up I discovered that he was right — the blog could not be reached. I called my hosting company and the hold message mentioned a maintenance issue affecting some customers — apparently including me.
I was very busy for most of yesterday and there was nothing I could do about it anyway. I certainly didn’t expect it to be down for so long. But now it’s back up, and hopefully my hosting company won’t have the same problem again in the future.
Right now, I’m on a little business trip in beautiful Turlock, CA, helping out a friend with his spray business. I’ve been pretty busy with this kind of work for the past week and can’t wait to write a little bit about it. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll likely see photos and videos — including live periscope videos — posted occasionally throughout the day. The work is exhausting, and when I’m done for the day I basically fall into bed with my alarm set for 5 AM to start another day of the same. With rain forecasted for later today and all day tomorrow, I might actually get the chance to finish a blog post in progress and write about my spray loader work. Stay tuned — hopefully, the blog will stay up and running.
And, by the way, it feels great to be so busy after so many weeks of mostly idle time during my extended snowbirding vacation.
