LED On the Road

LED On the Road

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while.  I’ve been busy with yet another move.  This time, we’ve landed in Texas – temporarily – hopefully.  We may head back to Phoenix, but for now, we’re here.  But I’m so entrenched in this blog that I can’t stop seeing LEDs wherever I go.  I guess it’s a sickness.

While we were still in Phoenix, we went to a grocery store – yup a grocery store – with a Starbucks inside it.  There were two placards on the wall near the stand.  One said something about the water they use and the other said that the stand used energy saving techniques such as the installation of LED lighting.  I had taken a couple pictures – of the sign and of some lights that were actually on, but for some reason can’t find them now.  I suspect my son deleted them while playing with our phones.

Also, while in Texas, we’re staying with my husband’s mom and stepdad.  They have a pool in their backyard – much to my fish of a son’s delight – with a floating LED light for night use.  It’s not the best light in the world for illuminating an entire pool for night swimming, but it’s good at lighting a certain area.  It can also change colors between red, blue, green and this violet like color that seems to be a mix of the other three colors.  Pretty cool.

Other than that, I’m still trying to recover from the couple weeks of packing and travel.  I’ll do better on the next post – I promise.
