Storm watch

I thought I’d do my post for Tuesday while I’ve still got a solid Internet connection. We are at the beginning of a sever storm watch. Judging from past experience, there’s a better than even chance that my Internet will go down. Such is life in the woods at the end of a very long line back to civilization. There are too many trees and some are going to take down wires.

Last night a couple of thunderstorms rolled through. My lovely wife said it looked like there was a lightning strike near our beach. All I know is that the thunder was loud enough to shake the house. I’m not going to wander down to the beach with a possible hail storm on its way.

While I can do without the hail, I’m actually counting on a bit more rain. When the sun came out I soaped up the boat. Rather than run the hose out to it I’m waiting on the rain to do a rinse job. Eventually we’ll have some decent weather and I’ll launch the boat off the trailer.

In other news, my lovely wife and I checked a few more potential tow vehicles. Once this bad weather passes I’m going to make a few phone calls and make some some serious offers. The worse they can say is no.



  1. That is what my Dad always said. He said, "Son, don't be afraid to ask, the worst you can get is a no and you would be surprised how many times you get a yes". But he also told me that nothing was so bad that it can't get worse.
