A Daily Commute

I'm staying a house only about 10 miles from the drilling rig, but the commute is brutal. About three miles of the trip is on state roads, the rest is on private roads up in The Geysers. Its all well and good until you meet a tractor trailer coming down the hill.

For icing on the cake (OK, icing like on a Scheißekuchen, nothing like the icing on Janiece Murphy's cake).

The Geysers, in Haiku

Suvrat Kher started a geology haiku meme, so I had to put in my $0.02

Franciscan mélange
Free energy to produce
Mesozoic rocks

Steam from the ground abundant
Turbines spinning true to form
Heat source age debates

Holocene’s winter’s cold
Cloud factories issuance
Money drives it all
