It's gotten hot roundabout Exit 151, in the mid-90s F (~35° C). The other evening there was a loud Blam!, then power was out for 10 hours. Yesterday evening I noticed this addition to the local landscape. It wasn't there yesterday morning.
It's painted green, which I suppose makes it less noticeable, but is surrounded by orange cones... for visibility. It's also teetering, has a multitude of thick black cables and hazard signs, and it hums. Evidently it gets the job done – during last night's monsoonal lightning storm, the lights and, more critically, the air conditioner never flickered once.
Progress on interminable edging knitting continues. The Spider's Web Fichu is supposed to be a half-hexagon, but after it reached the formless blob stage, it was difficult to say which geometric plane it most resembled. Now enough of the edge is bound off to see that it looks a lot like three-quarters of a square.
Attempts to shape it into a half-hexagon resulted in hyperbolic ripples, most noticeable at the edge. It's strange how the half-hexagon seems smaller than the three-quarters square, in person as well as in the pix.
Oh well. As I imagine the finished shawl will sit on the shoulders nicely, its metaphysical form doesn't bother me. Now to polish off that interminable edging! Knit, knit, knit.
