No idea why. He's also built a little hamster hut out of the fluff. My first thought was, maybe the heater pad is broken? I brought the hab up to feel it, nope it's still working. Not really sure why he's doing this. Mysterious hamster reasons I guess.

A severe windstorm afflicting Oregon, Washington and California knocked out power all day and well into the night yesterday. The battery backup air pump saved the day, for the second time (although it was the old pump before). This just goes to show the importance of making life-critical hardware multiply redundant. Scott is in the spare land cage. I'm waiting a day to make sure the windstorm bullshit is truly over before he re-submerges.

There was an interruption because of the unexpected need for a new pump, so I wound up swapping hams mid-month. Consequently we're back to George living on land and Scott living underwater, even though that's what the last "hamsters swapped" message said. Pardon the irregularity, normal underwater hamster business has resumed and all is well with the world. Why am I so fuckin strange though
