Earth Day: We Tried

I know you all come here (or subscribe) to read my behemoth posts but it’s busy season at work, busy season at home and projects are rolling in. So for the next few weeks I regret to say that I will be posting somewhat smaller posts, somewhere in the 500 word range vs my regular 1,000-2,000 word posts 😉 Yea I know you guys miss em

Earth Day

For those of you that don’t know, it’s Earth Day today yesterday. Earth day is all about appreciating the earth and our ecosystem. There are many groups out there that use this day to spread energy conservation ideas and inspire others to be more Earth friendly.

At work it is my week to travel, so if anything gets broken that cannot be fixed remotely I get to jump in the rig and drive, sometimes a few hundred miles to replace or fix IT related equipment. For Earth Day I had planned to make an extra effort to try and do everything from my office, or do the traveling the day before and after, so that at least on Earth Day I wouldn’t be adding to the pollutants in the air.

Well, things didnt quite work out that way. We had some minor emergencies and I actually ended up driving more than I normally do in one day. I had to make a few stops and managed to outsource one of those to a local there so that made me feel slightly better.
