Rain Rain Rain

Maybe I should have really checked the weather before leaving the city. Today it seems the entire state of Florida is going to take another soaking, with possible severe weather.

I had the time to escape to say Kentucky until the weather cleared. Oh well...time to hunker down and let it blow by. Have a few good books to read, and of course can sleep late.

As long as the net stays up I'll get all the news.

Added another flashlight to the preps. Have enough to last for about a hundred years. This is one of the hand crank models with 4 led's. Squeezed it about 20 times. Sounds like a tiny generator inside. Like the ones used on the bicycle lights of the 50's. It stayed light for two hours, and with about 10 more pumps was ready to go again. Gives plenty of light in the van. Cost $5.00. Will be interesting to see how long it lasts, and how it works outside.

Time for a can of salmon for lunch. Can't go fishing right now, but can still eat fish.

See Ya

I don't envy you being stuck in such rotten weather. Sure makes for a lousy day. At least you aren't getting the snow we are getting today. I would rather be in Florida where it is warm. Hope you are out and about soon. Happy Holidays.

We got the rain here too. And sleet. And snow flurries. Oh yeah, the wind is whippin' up about 25 or 30 MPH as well... I'm ready for St. Thomas or somewhere...
