Everything I've heard from you guys back East says this was a totally awful winter. We just got some rain here--and cooler weather with it--but it only makes a slight dent in what we need. Most of the surrounding water districts are now on Stage 2 mandatory cutbacks, although how that will be enforced remains to be seen in this mostly rural county. But it's real spring--everything's turning green. I'll be finishing spring cleaning soon.

Ann, you're funny...fall cleaning! I started, got most of it done, but here...winter keeps coming back. I think it's finally over now though. I thought it would never end. I almost think, despite snow, that this was the worst winter EVER for me...temp wise.

Cadman-LT, we're still on drought watch and running out of time.

Cadman-LT glad you got a breather. We finally got a little bit of rain and then some more. But still nowhere near enough.

Ann, it just got worse after that. Snowed a bunch. It's finally thawing and everything will be flooded. Least it's warm though, for a few days anyways. I'll take it!

Cadman-LT, sorry to hear about the bad weather out. Here in California we're going through a major drought. We'd gladly take some of that excess precipitation.

Artificially created metamaterials are already appearing in niche applications like electronics, communications, and defense, says a new report from Lux Research. How quickly they become mainstream depends on cost-effective manufacturing methods, which will include additive manufacturing.
SpaceX has 3D printed and successfully hot-fired a SuperDraco engine chamber made of Inconel, a high-performance superalloy, using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The company's first 3D-printed rocket engine part, a main oxidizer valve body for the Falcon 9 rocket, launched in January and is now qualified on all Falcon 9 flights.
A new thermoplastic composite for high-speed, high-volume injection molding has tensile strength that's close to, and sometimes better than, either lay-up composites or metals.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and MIT have 3D-printed a new class of metamaterials that are both exceptionally light and have exceptional strength and stiffness. The new metamaterials maintain a nearly constant stiffness per unit of mass density, over three orders of magnitude.
Smart composites that let the material's structural health be monitored automatically and continuously are getting closer to reality. R&D partners in an EU-sponsored project have demonstrated what they say is the first complete, miniaturized, fiber-optic sensor system entirely embedded inside a fiber-reinforced composite.
