Far Flung Adventures: Taos
Sam Richardson reports that Far Flung is up and running in Taos. A late-season snow and some good rains have brought the Rio up and Flung boatmen are able to the run the Taos Box, one of northern New Mexico’s primo river trips. Up from Terlingua are Billy Blackstock, Maria Blosser, Catfish Callaway and Richard Nance. And former Terlinguaseño, and now a Taos resident, Hank Mosakowski (aka Hank-O) is rowing boats again and is running the Box as well. There was one Ken Barnes sighting recently but, according to reports, “Barnesy” has returned to South County. Further details as they occur.

Power Outages and the RGEC
We have had a few lightning events lately and the season will soon be upon us. So here are some guidelines for how to call Rio Grande Electric to report one.
“While it’s true that RGEC does have equipment that can detect voltage anomalies, when your power goes out, it’s always advisable to call in the outage. Don’t assume that your neighbor has called. Being prepared with your meter number speeds the process, and gets the service crews to you as soon as possible. Describing what happens before the outage can help. Telling us if blinks occurred, or if lights seemed to get dimmer or brighter, may be useful. Remember to check your breakers before reporting an outage. It is possible that your outage is within your own electrical system. And finally… “Arcing is another issue with which we struggle in dry weather, just because dust forms on the insulators, and even the slightest amount of precipitation - or even humidity - can form a goop with the dust which disrupts the use of the insulator. An arcing line puts off a distinctive blue glow. This situation is the cause of many pole top fires. The arcing can be seen day or night. If you see arcing, call us immediately (as power outage is imminent) with the location of the pole. The RGEC phone number, to be duly noted by you forthwith and to be used for any electrical emergency, is 1-800-749-1509. Operators are standing by… Even at midnight on Christmas.
The Terlingua school board will meet at 4:30 on Wednesday at the high school. If you are concerned about our school and our students, PLEASE plan to attend.
