I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here.
Today’s tip is to get outside today and give your mind and body a natural boost.
Easy one for me today. I’m off, so I’ll be outside working on my extension cord. Last weekend my daughter and I rented a trencher and dug a hole from the barn to a middle pasture. We’ve struggled with water out here in the winter, with some weird PVC and extension cords cobbled together. It worked, but not well, and it was only intended for short term work.
As we’ve realized we will have horses here for most of the winter, I decided we needed power out here, and the best way to do this in a low impactful and cost effective way is to set up two outlets, connected by wire underground. This is protected from horses, isn’t permanently wired to the barn, and if something trips or breaks, we can isolate this from the rest of our system.
A very hard afternoon got the wire buried. Today, I wire up outlets.
