    Wow! The Maldives are quite beautiful. Wish I were there instead of cold, overcast New England…

      1/2 mile visibility, 38 deg F, and wet here in my portion of central Indiana. Not a chance of seeing the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter or any other speck of light from the heavens this morning.

      Of course as soon as it has gotten cold the bladder in the pressure tank for my well decided to give up the ghost. The well is outside the but pressure tank is in a crawl space under the house. Not a critical failure but one I will have to correct pretty soon. Have adequate pressure but with things they way they are the submersible pump in the well will be kicking on a lot more and replacing that is a $2,000 operation so best not to procrastinate too long on replacing the tank. The joys of home ownership.

        Clear here this morning – went out at the prescribed 45 minutes before sunrise. You didn’t miss anything special.

        Could be the tank needs “burped.”
        While you are under the house, change out the pressure gauge needle valve assembly. The small diameter fittings clog.
        Our whole setup is in the garage. Can you re-plumb and move yours?

        • RAH says:

          Thanks for the tip. I’ll try burping it and check the needle valve and see if that works. If not I’m thinking of just buying a new larger tank to minimize the amount the pump runs anyway.

          At this time my garage is not attached to the house, not insulated, but has electric heat but I rarely use it, so that one is a no go. I have plans to build an attached three car plus garage that is heated full time and when I do not only the pressure tank but the laundry, water softener, and water heater, and furnace will all go into it. The existing detached garage will become a screened in patio with roof. A party room during the summer and a place for storage of fire wood for the fire place and lawn furniture and cushions and such during the winter.

    20 to 30 cm; roughly 8-12 inches. If we assume that global SLR has been at a rate of around 7 in/100 years during recent decades, then it’s only risen 1 3/4 in over the past 25 years.

    • tonyheller says:

      Or we could assume that any climate statistic from the government is garbage.

      • garyh845 says:

        Indeed – and many thinks for making the case!

      • Steve Case says:

        The report that was out a week or so ago said 8 feet of
        sea level rise was possible by 2100. Eight feet in 80 years
        comes to 30 mm/yr when the rate over the last 100 years
        is maybe a little over 2 mm/yr. The people that make
        these outrageous claims must never do the arithmetic.

        Here’s a chart:

    Average high 30 year round, average low 24 year round.
    Population was 200 000 1988-now 400 000.
    Something is attractive there!
    Maybe not the drinking water?

  4. arn says:

    Damn it.
    Seems 2018 will be the worst year in history of mankind.

    The year hasn’t even started and the Maledives and New York have drowned and the arctic is ice free.

    Saudi Arabia is investing billions in the Maldives. I guess they aren’t worried: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/26/world/asia/maldives-atoll-saudi-money.html?smid=pl-share
