- Two concentric rows of silver dots are steel armoring cables.
- The very thin layer directly below the armor is a copper shield
- The solid black mass is a plastic filler for structural support.
Inside that filler you have 4 independent cables. There are 3 high voltage conductors for 3 phase power. Those layers:
- Thin White - Jacket/conductor screen
- Black - Outer semiconductor
- Thick White - XLPE electrical insulation
- Black - Inner semiconductor
- Center - Copper power conductor
The 4th small cable in the upper left is probably an armored fiber optic line. Used for transmitting information needed to operate the circuit and monitor the cable integrity.
It's gonna overflow and send the scientists screaming! Pele be angry!
The slowly rising lava lake at Kīlauea's summit was very close to the rim of the Overlook crater, and floor of Halema‘uma‘u Crater. This afternoon the lava lake was roughly 6 m (20 feet) from the rim. This photo was taken from the Jaggar Museum overlook, which had superb views tonight.
Level on April 4th.

We always inventory the stomachs of any sizable trout we catch. That is also a very educational action.
Local Gent Field and Stream soap, Rainbow synthetic brush, C.F. Wolfertz & Co vintage straight out of Allentown, Pa., Proraso eucalyptus and menthol aftershave.
25 laps on leather, both sides, two passes on the face, one seeper only, nice clean shave to start the weekend.

True? Who knows, but it's an interesting thought.
Spotted this old yellow tomcat hanging around the back yard this morning. He's probably the explanation for the yowling/howling at 3am the other morning. It was most likely wild cat sex with one of our fine lady mousers. Jokes on him, they're all fixed.
Shave of the day this morning. Getting better at building a lather. This batch looks like it needs some sprinkles and a spoon.
