the DaveCave that is!
I have a full-blown two day weekend this week. All chores Monday...still have some tech stuff to complete before bedtime.
In the calm between the storms, I finally got my front porch thawed enough to chip away the last couple of storms-worth of pack ice...I kept expecting a polar bear to stake it's territory on the darn thing. Chipping away with the heavy Mutt felt good...as did the sun on my face...a welcomed warm sunny afternoon!
Tuesday morning, I watched the unfolding story of the chairlift derailment at Sugarloaf in Maine on FoxNews...as is typical of the 24/7 cable news of today, the "reporting" was long on hype and short on details. Would it hurt to name the manufacturer of the chairlift?
The best I could glean was 6-7 injuries after five chairs fell about 30-35 ft after a gust of wind hit just as the chair was restarted.
FoxNews cited a Maine newspaper in saying Sugarloaf wanted to replace the stricken chair with a "heavier chair that would withstand wind better" in a story from earlier this year.
None of the injuries were labeled life-threatening.
Finally I found a Sugarloaf Press Release that answered most of my questions.
