The pretty colours on the sparkling crystal waters is due to an oil slick !

On the 12th Feb, I carefully reapply power to the shack. I have an earth leakage breaker. Eventually I disconnected enough stuff and it stopped tripping. In the aftermath, I am fortuneate that most of the good stuff was out of reach. Mostly only junk was submerged and most of that has commenced its journey to landfill. The C13 did get waterlogged. It might yet survive, it was immediately dosed with a can full of sillicone spray and blow dried in the hot sun. It might yet live.
