And it was cooooooool! Started right about 2200 (or so) and lasted all of 10 minutes; but it was coooooooool! Except for it (usually) starting fires around here, I could live with a bit more lightning and thunder. (And Iâ€™d still be a Storm Chaser if I could.)
SWMBO had the day off for a dental appointment this morning. I made a run to Harbor Freight in Tacoma (for a new generator) then headed for COSTCO in Gig Harbor. Invited SWMBO to lunch and she met me there. Spent $150 of the Clubâ€™s money on Hot Dogs and stuff for Field Day this weekend. And we spent about the same for stuff we needed. Then, after a lot of the numbing had worn off her jaw, I took her to Qdobaâ€™s for lunch. (I donâ€™t really like Qdobaâ€™s, but she does. And her happiness is worth eating one foo-foo Mexican meal occasionally.)
Stopped by the digger rental place on the highway between Gorst & Belfair and got everything set up for a digger tomorrow. Got home and unloaded her car and got my new generator running.
The digger rental place delivered the digger today and told me to call them tomorrow when Iâ€™m through with it. Cool. Already spread out that pile of rocks I had just sitting there waiting for me to do that. Yep, gonna take a butt-ton of smaller stuff to keep the Caravan from sinking into it. Will do that tomorrow.
Not a whole lot going on now. SWMBO is sitting in the library reading (on her phone) and Iâ€™m â€œplayingâ€ in my room. Had to reboot my computer cause one of my drives just disappeared for awhile. Hope I donâ€™t have another drive going bad. I use the Hell out of them though.
The MCARC 10-meter Tuesday Evening Chat Net went okay for only 4 of us checking in. I almost heard everybody!
