Soma I'm sure you know this but make sure your cellphone and laptop are fully charged going into those storms. Never kept my phone topped off during weather before but the power outage Haloween 2011 taught me better. Almost 3 days of running to the car to charge the cell - my only real connection to the world!

Hunker down and stay safe.

My cell phone seemed to be needing a charge a lot of the time. I mentioned it to Spike. He told me that the batteries have a memory and I wasn't letting it run down enough. So since he knows way more than I do I let the battery run down until the phone went dead. It took forever for it to recharge. Bad advice Spike. I will not listen to you again regarding batteries. He also suggested I do the same for the battery on my scooter. I tried that also. It took two days for that to recharge. I do have to admit though, as far as the scooter goes, it does go much faster now and doesn't run down as quickly. But I am not telling him. His head is big enough as it is.

I have the cell phone cord right next to my bed. Every night I plug the phone in and also my scooter. That is the advice I got from the company guy that brought it to me. Plug it in every night. Learning new habits in this world of technology is very wearing on me.

Here it is just after midnight and it has cooled down to only 81F. That means tomorrow is going to be even hotter than today. Another day inside. I am no dummy.

It's June, 63F, cloudy and windy. The pool's open, but I don't think I'm going swimming today.
