Holidays on Edloe

Celebrating the season in his unique way, R. Crap Mariner has decorated Edloe. Clocktree Park is in the spirit of the season...

…well, if one ignores the "bah humbug" message below the tree. The kitten-in-a-box is so cute that one might not notice the crate behind it to the left: Dame Ordinal's automated snowball-throwing machine.

Dare I say that Edloe has the world's largest steam-driven menorah?

Throw some more coal on the burner - it's the Festival of *cough* Lights!

The tanks have plenty of natural gas in them... none of this stretching things out over eight days crap!

The pumps drives the gas, then the switches route the flow to the ignitors on top of the stacks.

I'll be pulling that sucker up tonight before the usual story stuff, and the tree will be on the mountain until 1/1.

Natural gas? Shows my ignorance of all things mechanical. You modern people will blow us up yet. Back in my day, old-fashioned coal was good enough.
