Last night’s snow turned into rain at dawn. It was a relieved morning with no snow. In this area with many slopes, it is difficult to remove snow when it snows. But this morning I was able to relax. But the temperature is low and it is raining lightly. I decided to put the stove on fire in the morning and decided to relax at home. Kurumi likes to massage every morning. This morning he had his neck massaged and he was feeling good. The number of new infections with the new coronavirus is declining. As it is, all the people are patient.
I got up early this morning as well. He woke up at 5:30 and was relaxing in the living room with me. It’s raining lightly this morning. It’s going to be a cold day, with the rain coming to snow. He was playing with toys for a while, but he sneaked into the bed. Let’s have fun today.
The cold days continue, but the warmth of the sun helps during the day. Invited by the warmth, I walked a little far. I found plum blossoms blooming along the way, and I feel that spring is soon to come. The number of new infections with the new coronavirus has disappeared from more than 2,000 until last week, but the number is still around 1,500, and the number of serious injuries is increasing. It’s been one year since the infection started. Every day, TV news begins with the theme of Corona. As I always write, I want it to settle down really quickly.
I’m not happy if the wheel of the car is damaged. I’m driving with care, but I get scratched in the gravel-lined parking lot. It’s not a deep wound, but I decided to try to repair it myself. The #320 and #800 files made it less noticeable, so I decided to leave it as it is. I can paint and finish it, but I’m not confident yet. I would like to gain experience with putting and painting. Recently, there is a light-curing putty, which is convenient.
Because I refrained from going out, the chances of going out have decreased. I’m taking a walk trying to move my body even a little. I’m taking a walk on the 2km course, but when I climb the long stairs along the way, I get sweaty. There are about 150 steps. It was one of the pleasures to be able to greet people in the morning.
When it comes to the stove season, we make grilled potatoes. Choose a sweet potato of the right size. Wrap it in an aluminum wheel and place it on the stove. Occasionally, to bake it well rotating it, it will be fluffy. We enjoy this for our next morning meal. It seems that sweet potatoes become sweeter when exposed to sunlight, so I put them by the window of my house.
Cold days continue. It seems that the Sea of Japan side is suffering from heavy snow. In Toyama City, it has been reported in the news that the snowfall for the first time in 35 years has caused damage to transportation. At this time of year, there are few flowers, so I feel a little lonely even if I take a walk. I will be healed by the cyclamen that bloom by the window when I return home. Born in Japan, which has four seasons, I enjoy the seasons, but I am troubled by the abnormal weather in recent years.
このファンは 6 年前に購入して使っています。ストーブの上に置いて、温度差を電圧に変換するペルチェ効果を利用してモーターを駆動しています。ペルチェ素子は電圧と温度の双方向変換が行えるもので、冷却と加熱が簡単に行えます。さて、このファンに使われている素子はどの程度の電圧が出るのか知りたく、電圧計を取り付けてみました。ストーブの温度が 200 ℃くらいで約 1 V の電圧が発生していました。世の中にはもっと効率の良い素子もあると思いますが、実際に測定してみることができました。メーターの針が小さいので遠くからは読みにくいですが、ソファーで座っていても温度を知ることができそうです。
This fan was purchased and used 6 years ago. It is placed on the stove to drive the motor using the Peltier effect, which converts the temperature difference into a voltage. The Peltier element can convert voltage and temperature in both directions, and can be easily cooled and heated. Well, I wanted to know how much voltage the element used in this fan outputs, so I installed a voltmeter. When the temperature of the stove was about 200 ° C, a voltage of about 1 V was generated. I think there are more efficient devices in the world, but I was able to actually measure the voltage. Since the point of the meter is small, it is difficult to read from a distance, but it seems that I can know the temperature even if I am sitting on the sofa.
The life of refraining from going out has begun. I spent today doing this kind of work. I found out that there is a 2-wire voltage indicator, so I bought it from Amazon. Unfortunately, one of the four of them showed a problem that the display did not appear. I did woodcraft to make a shape that surrounds the printed circuit board. I don’t have a voltmeter in my car, so I installed this voltmeter. It’s a weekend I spent doing this.
To prevent the explosion of new infections, a state of emergency was re-declared in Tokyo and the neighborhood prefectures where I live. More than 2,000 new cases have occurred in Tokyo yesterday and today. All of us shall cooperate in self-restraint life for the next one month. I’ve been living a cramped life since last spring, but now I’m in a difficult situation again. It is said that many people infected during Christmas time last year are now detected. This situation cannot end forever without the cooperation of all the people.
