Move to Texas, they said…

Apologies to anyone waiting on an order. The winter storm currently gripping the United States has crippled the electrical grid here in Texas. We’re currently operating with power about half the time and the temperature in the hangar / office / shop is hovering at 29° F as of this morning.

Rumor has it that the normal weather and stable electricity may not return until some time next week. As such, I’m declaring a snow day (or snow week). I’ll do my best to keep up with email, but build and ship operations are offline until things thaw. Thanks for your patience!
