Monday before the storm

By , March 3, 2008 9:58 pm

Waiting for it to get this way. Wind has been horrible all day. Took Cat to Pell City to meet with her mother so they could go to the funeral together and then Cat needs to do some maintenance to Martha’s computer and she is on dialup so will take a while to get updates so she is staying the night. We went early and checked out the books at America’s Thrift Store. Ended up buying way too many yet again. Still got a fair number of titles we didn’t have, filled in spots in some of the series we collect, and replaced a couple of book club books with first editions. Soon as Martha showed up I left to get back here. Wind wasn’t quite as bad as it had been going over, but still had a tiring time driving the van. Got back and been sitting and reading for the most part since then. Went out and checked contents at the fridge at the campsite, then turned off power to everything down that way at the barn. Not sure what this storm will bring so better safe than sorry. Till tomorrow…

    Doesn’t look like this one is going to be near as bad as last week, which I felt pretty certain of as soon as they decided to delay school for 2 hours today. Not gainsaying the decision, but that seems to be the way it always works out–whenever a decision is made based on a previous event’s consequences, the upcoming event never lives up to the last one. Of course, if you DON’T make the prudent course, then a record-making event (in a BAD way) occurs. Makes me believe in the psychic powers of mankind–we wield power that we don’t even know we have. Of course, as far as humanity is concerned, when is that new? Getting a good bit of rain, that’s for sure…

    Since school (or work, as far as I am concerned) doesn’t start for a couple hours yet, I have time to do some things around here. Hopefully I will, going to start with making breakfast, methinks. And actually sitting down and eating it in a relaxed fashion, not in a hurry to get to work (or more common) eating it AT work while I answer e-mails, update computers, etc.

    Got the Mepis machine going again last night, this time the network worked fine. I don’t know what the problem was the other day, other than it seemed to be the wireless bridge. Will see if I can plumb some of the mysteries of Linux on that machine…really want to get a little more proficient in Linux (THAT won’t take much!) and try some things out. All I need is a time machine, I guess…

    Well, hoping that the storm doesn’t single you out or anything. Guess I’ll go get going on the day.
