As soon as they started talking about this FAA drone registration program, in anger, in the media, last week I noticed that there was NEVER any mention of model, make and serial number. That seemed incongruous. So today I went checking. You can see what I found — on the first image above.

The FAA does not ask for Make, Model or Serial Number.

That is very strange. I have never encountered a product registration that did not want the product specifically identified.

So this is basically a program to TRACK drone OWNERS.

Also puzzled that they do NOT mention Permanent Residents (i.e., Green Card Holders). Permanent Residents can LEGALLY own (and register) firearms in the U.S. So it would be strange if a Permanent Resident can register a semi-automatic weapon BUT NOT a drone! Aaah!

I, always wanting to be on the safe and legal side, checked the weight of our UDI U818As (and yes, we have two). 4.2 ounces + 2.1 ounces for the battery = 6.3 ounces (178.6 gram). So we are well under the 0.55 (8.8 ounce, 250 gram) weight limit.

Teischan who has been extremely distressed at the lack of snow this winter excitedly woke us up this morning, at the crack of dawn (i.e., ~8:40 am), to inform us that it has snowed and that there was snow on the ground. I knew that, at best, it could only be a dusting. But she was excited. Well I was NOT going to jump out of bed to check out a bit of snow. IF it was 4′ I might have made an effort to see how much shoveling I would have to do. Instead, while I cajoled Deanna to get me my coffee, I checked the snow from my pad! Technology is amazing. That is also how I check for rain, in the morning, these days to determine whether I can run or not.

Well it made Teischan happy. I went out after my shower — today being a day off from my 6-days a week (barring rain or temperatures BELOW 5°F (-15°C)) run. There was still snow. IT IS COLD. 28°F (-2.25°C)! That was a shock though I still did go out just in sweats without a jacket.

I assume it will all be gone by this afternoon.

60°F (15.5°C) on Christmas Day!

That would indeed be Christmas. I love this ‘Global Warming’. Bring it on.
