At five-thirty this morning, I took a flashlight, went to the rain gauge, and saw 4 2/10 inches of rain that had fallen since last night. Since the gauge only holds five inches, I dumped it; but it's still raining out there!
The biggest drawback of using Dish TV is that heavy rain and storms tend to leave you without television. I've found out, however, that I can get two local channels quite nicely, with absolutely no antenna. I turn off the dish box and pick up good signals on local ABC and CBS. Which means I can keep informed on the weather situation.
I think it's time to take my desktop in for a checkup. It won't connect to the Internet this morning. I'd sort of like it to have those Microsoft updates that keep shutting it down, anyhow. Thank goodness for my laptop.
It's good to have a spare computer.
