    Default Observer/Observatory Christmas Wish List???

    Dear Mount Washington Observatory and Observers,

    I have not yet received your letter letting me know what you want for Christmas! Don't delay - Christmas is coming, and time is running out!

    It was going to be todays comment post but the weather trumped that. Look for it on Tuesday or Wednesday as I have wrote it but have not posted it yet.

    Well, there's Bert's Radomes over on 8th. Radome City on the corner of Church and Dwight. Oh, the Antenna Superstore on 9th. You know, the radome district.

    That's great, because I have a 20% off coupon for Radome City.

    Brian and I talked about MacGyver-style fixes in the meantime... trash bags, tarps, duct tape, fastening this to that... If anyone has a 100mph-proof solution for how to cover the guts of a microwave dish on short notice with no supplies, foul weather approaching and no Radome City within driving distance, please do share.

    There is this stuff on TV where they show the small tube of stuff going on a pants pocket and then it does not rip off 1.709 seconds later. Maybe just having a 20 gallon supply of that stuff on the summit would even be better than duck tape. I can't imagine anything better than "duck tape & fiberglass resin". Not sure how you apply it in 100 mph winds though. Maybe the folks at Aflac insurance would know.

    Duct tape is a handyman's secret weapon! I learned the many uses of it watching the Red Green show many years back.

    NO solution in that kind of weather.

    Wasn't that a new dome put up at the end of the summer?
    There has to be some kind of warranty? Get the mfg. up there and let HIM fix it!!!

    I have a long held belief that Billy Mays is one of the greatest people of our time. From oxy clean, to hercules hooks, he's not steered me wrong yet...

    I think this is a job for mighty putty!
