Thur. May 23, 2019 – it’s getting weird out there

79F and 91%RH. Yesterday was partly cloudy with a smattering of drops. Another win for openweathermap.com It seems to be good for my area at least. There are so many things going on that it’s hard to even chronicle them. … Continue reading

Wed. May 22, 2019 – mind is blank

79F and 93%RH. Forecast is for no rain. Openweathermap called for just under 1.8mm of rain yesterday and that is probably about what we got. I’m beginning to trust their prediction. Thanks for the tip. I’m tired and slow this … Continue reading

Thur. May 16, 2019 – driving today

65F and damp. Yesterday was beautiful all day. I’m hoping for more of the same. These last few days of spring are precious. Quick scan of the headlines shows things continuing to slide. Venezuela isn’t getting better. Trade isn’t getting … Continue reading

Wed. May 15, 2019 – convenience vs. resilience

66F and saturated.  Sunny though.  Nice day so far. As I look at my gutted dishwasher, I’m contemplating an idea that may be more important than I first thought.  The idea is that we’ve been trading resilience for convenience. As … Continue reading

Tues. May 14, 2019 – grid still up, use the time wisely

66F and saturated. FEMA national forecast has us on the edge of a big system, openweathermap has today dry. I guess we’ll see. I was very glad to hear that Ray is recovering. If you have an issue, get it … Continue reading
