Power plant? What power plant?

The AES Cayuga plant hasn't been running since March, so our electricity is no longer coming from Tompkins County. For more on why, see Stuart Staniford's look at the paths of oil and natural gas prices.

This storm mostly missed our house, though we got lots of rain from the next one through. Here are some pictures from the Dacha Project.

Update: Somehow I missed Henry Kramer's latest bluster about, er, I'm not sure. How valuable it is for the gas industry to spend lots of money pushing its positions, and how we should be grateful to the Ithaca Journal for taking their PR seriously? Something like that.
