That all depends on how quickly you self administer a decent dose of Great Aunt Fanny's rhubarb wine as an antidote....

If you want to dry and store the nettles, pick them during a dry period after a good downpour. You can wear gardening gloves if you don’t like the idea of being stung.


*makes notes* Right, do not forget gloves.

Pick enough (wearing gloves of course) for this:

"Here is what you need for one demijohn / 4.5litres / 1 gallon / 6 bottles of nettle wine

2 litres of young nettle tops
1.5 kilos of sugar (for sweet - reduce to 1kg for a drier finish)
2 Lemons
Small piece of root ginger
4.5 litres of water
Yeast and Yeast nutrient"

Cleaning the dust off the tables, putting new flowers down, hanging the curtains back up, wiping the bar and waxing it, turning the Raspberry Pi on, putting the TV on, put browser on auto-update on Windy.com showing Arecibo + weather forecast, (wow, they're going to expect 101 knots wind gusts?)

That wall still needs painted.
That wall still needs a wall.
But other than that, everything's ready for tomorrow's outage.

Yes, only 101 gusts. Not sustained 156+. Just hope everything got new nails and the screws and bolts tightened since the last storm.

Thought we had a bot for those weekly cobweb cleanings, or did it blow away?

Bilí for everyone, but me. I didn't quit that stuff 10 years ago to restart now.

@Gary, bots don't have eternal life. Its batteries gave out. Or something.
Besides, there's not much use to clean the floor when we're missing one wall....

Might be the roof and the other three. Just upgraded to Cat 4, "an extremely dangerous storm" sustained winds to 130mph.

Additional strengthening is forecast during the next 24 to 36 hours
RAINFALL: Puerto Rico...12 to 18 inches, isolated 25 inches.

Has now reached Cat 5 and is expected to pass directly over Puerto Rico. I wish everyone to stay safe in the path of this monster.
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/hurricane-maria-puerto-rico-imposes-rationing-of-basic-supplies/
MIAMI -- Puerto Rico has imposed a rationing of basic supplies including water and baby formula as Hurricane Maria approaches as a Category 5 storm.

Officials said Monday that the rationing is necessary to ensure everyone has access to basic items such as batteries, milk, canned foods, flashlights and other supplies. It does not apply to gasoline or other fuels.

Shelves at many stores were emptying out quickly as people rushed to finalize hurricane preparations. Many posted desperate pleas on social media for help in finding certain items.


@Jord, I thought we got the self repairing version that even ordered its own spare parts?

We thought we were clever when we bought it like that, yes, but forgot that:
a) it needs electricity to charge its batteries, something of a luxury we haven't had here in the past two weeks;
b) to fix itself, it needs an internet connection to do so, which everyone around here has had sparsely;
c) to be able to get parts in, one needs a courier company. The one we have around here misses 3 walls and a roof;
d) even if parts managed to get here, it needs a human to add them and that human apparently needs to be a rocket scientist.

We've had quite a few early starting outages recently. I know what an ex colleague would have asked if someone turned up at work that early, so we just have to hope it's not due to someone with a bladder issue :-D

If you build a Super Crunching Rig remember to watch your temps or this might happen:
