Brian was cheerfully assured that snow would slide off the big solar panels.
No problem, the vendors said. The pitch is plenty steep for that, the snow will just remove itself.
And we've got some swampland we're interested in selling. Oh, it does slide. Eventually. Thing is, while waiting, the panels are not making hydro. You cannot watch that funky dial spin backwards (always entertaining)
Undaunted, Brian whisked into the BMD Top Secret R&D Labs, and came sweeping out with a broom. Not just any broom. If Harry Potter picked this one to play Quidditch, the entire team could fit comfortably on board, along with a few cheering fans.
A few moments with this beauty, and the solar panels are good to go. Even before the sun is high enough to really drive their fires!
Three cheers for the BMD (Bondi Maintenance Dept.) and a timely reminder not to believe everything you're told by folks who want to sell stuff. Just saying...
