Forgot: Yesterday we had a FA-18 circling Belfair (and going almost directly over our house) for about an hour. Got some really shaky video. Was cool but I wonder why. Havenâ€™t seen anything in the newsâ€¦
Thunder today but havenâ€™t actually seen any lightning. Yet. Itâ€™s supposed to get worse later. Worse? Not to me. I enjoy thunder and lightning! I have unplugged the antennaâ€™s from my radio though. Why take chances? We also have a flood watch for Mason County and surrounding areaâ€¦
Really starting to like this Nexus 7 of mine! Especially when I go lay down to read, but donâ€™t feel like reading (or going to sleep). I can check G+, FB, Tumblr, and Pinterest or watch stuff on YouTube. Or watch a movie on Netflix. Check mail. Read the latest Popular Science. Just a butt-ton of things.
It will never actually replace my desktop (neither would a laptop) but for what it does it does it well. Having the case on it makes for a tight fit but it will still fit in my back pocket. Iâ€™d love to â€œupgradeâ€ to the latest one just for the new camera. Iâ€™d say about the only thing I donâ€™t like about it is using the keyboard. Typing a message is slow for me (I can type 120-130 words a minute on a keyboard when I get warmed up).
Finally got down in the â€œshopâ€ and built a base to lift the washer & dryer up about a foot or so to make it easier for this old man to get clothes in and out of them. Getting old is a bitch!
It appears weâ€™ve had quite a bit of thunder & lightning around us. One poor guy got struck by lightning while out riding his motorcycle! (Thatâ€™s gotta suck!) Sat on the deck and listened to the thunder passing us to the south & west. Cool!
The lights have flickered a couple of times and even turned my tv/monitor off once so Iâ€™d better post this before we totally lose power.
