It was cool! Couldn’t hardly see the lightning through the downpour that was going on; but it was there. Thunder too. Cool! Too bad it lasted only 10 minutes or so. I set my camera up but haven’t watched the video to see if I caught any or not. Would be cool if I did! (Oh yeah, I’d be a “Storm-Chaser” if I could.)
Other than that it’s been a pretty “normal” morning around here. Just finished my breakfast and about to head out to check mail. Updated the MCARC site. (Finally!) Moving things around on my drives trying to get ready to “upgrade” to larger drives. (Only 2 2-TB drives but that’s larger than what I have in there now.)
Guy from the car dealer called about 1330 and said that he’d try to have my truck back to me this afternoon. That he’d call me again around 1600. BUT, It MAY not be until tomorrow. Thanks for calling, but, you could have just waited until later to call to say either it’s ready or I’d have to wait until tomorrow.
Not a whole lot going on and I’m bored as hell. All my usual chores are done and I’ve “puttered” around until I’m purely sick of puttering around. Still can’t really do anything outside cause it is still really wet out. I have some bucks but can’t think of anything I really want to buy.
Speaking of buying: last night I ordered SWMBO’s Christmas present and myself a new radio. Thought I’d give that JT-6188 Dual Band Radio a workout since it’s a “mere” $95 ($102.64 with tax and shipping). I figure I’ll set it up in the house and use it awhile before swapping it for the radio in the truck. If it works out I may be buying another; if it works. Reviews are pretty evenly split between “priceless” and “POS.”
So, I made one of the Cheesy Potato soups (with diced grilled Chicken added), but, SWMBO said “Broccoli sure would go good in that!” so I wound up making Cheesy Potato Broccoli Soup instead. (Oh, my it was tasty and filling!) Made donut shaped corn muffins to go with it. Added a big glass of grape juice. Good stuff!
Picked SWMBO up at the Ferry Landing. Didn’t rain a bit either direction. Cool! We be home and she’s enjoying some of the soup I made. Think I’ll watch an episode of Doctor Who and “play” with Linux before I hit the rack.
