Sun. Sept. 30, 2018 – starting to think of Fall

75F and wet. Yuck. Had a weird coughing fit last night. Woke me up and got me out of bed for an hour or more. I feel like I’ve been beaten with sticks this am. Some meatspace obligations today, that … Continue reading

Sat. 29, 2018 – I got nuthin’

75F and threatening to rain. Of course we have a soccer game this morning! I’m doing a deep clean on my office and all my work areas as part of a deal with my wife. I get this mess cleaned … Continue reading

Fri. Sept. 28, 2918 – the wheel turns, the pendulum swings, and history rhymes

What what what??? I look at my thermometer and it says 69F! Still 91%RH, but FINALLY below 70F. Fall MUST be here. That means I’m late with the garden. Interesting comment tossed off yesterday, that the 90’s would be weirder … Continue reading

Thur. Sept. 27, 2018 – already? yep.

A cool 70F and drippy this am… And it’s already Thursday again. Jeez. And I got new stuff added to my list. Dishwasher needs replacement at the rent house. It’s probably 20 years old and a latch has failed. Seems … Continue reading

Wed. Sept. 26, 2018 – still raining

Woke to the sound of rain… Currently 76F and light drizzle. Forecast calls for more. I hope we get a break as I have a riding mower to sell today. More work, more listings, more cleanup. I will say that … Continue reading

Tues. Sept. 25, 2018 – more network and pc work, and cleanup

Currently 73F and not quite saturated. Close though. Wife has moved along the closet remodel by coming home with a van load of modular closet system. It hangs from the wall and so doesn’t rely on a finished floor. It … Continue reading

Mon. Sept. 24, 2018 – nuts, the shrieking hysterics are nuts

71F and wet. Woke to chirping. The CO monitor wants a new battery, and it won’t let you say “later”. Unfortunately, it’s REALLY not clear how to open the damned thing. Another few chirps, or if they’d come an hour … Continue reading

Sun. Sept. 23, 2018 – long month…

70F and saturated at 8am. I’m sure that will get better if the sun comes out. This month is dragging by, and yet the days and even weeks seem too short. Weird. Found 4 dead rats in the attic yesterday. … Continue reading

Sat. Sept 22, 2018 – lotsa rain for some folks

89F at 8am and 93%RH. Got some rain here yesterday, but the south east part of Houston got CLOBBERED. I haven’t looked at totals yet, but I’d be surprised if they didn’t get 4-6″ in no time flat. Couldn’t see … Continue reading

Fri. Sept. 21, 2018 – what did you do to prep this week?

79F and wet. I hope it’s slightly cooler today, I need to process in all my solar panels. And that’s what I did to prep. I bought a pickup bed full of little panels. Getting them to work is a … Continue reading
