Night Off

Tornado watches south and northwest, and up north, more storms coming on down thru town.  Coming off a work assignment, I had raindrops hitting the windshielf the size of guppies, where even on high wiper speed, it was hard to see.

So it's a good night to batten down the hatches and make sure there is plenty of ice. Today was a 14 hour day so I'm probably going to bunker down early. :-)

  1. Night off? ... or Off Night? :P

    I've had too many of those long days lately. I'm cutting my life short. ... Get your rest.

    Stay safe.

  2. Heed no nightly noises! For nothing passes door and window (t)here save moonlight and starlight and the wind off the hill-top.

  3. Gotta have ice for those storm drinks. Are you sure they weren't real guppies?

  4. I became a firm believer in the power of RainEx after driving through a storm like that waaaaaaaaay back in my highschool days. A couple of friends and I drove up to Atlanta for a camping weekend, he had his car and his parents' "spare" car, we all loaded up our gear and headed out. Biiiig thunderstorm hit about an hour out of town, and lasted pretty much all weekend (in varying intensities...Georgia red mud, once sufficiently hydrated, is no place for a Honda Civic!)...John's car had Rain-Ex on the windshield, the other car didn't. Difference was like night and day. Good stuff, that.

  5. When home seems like the only place in the world to be? Sleep well.

  6. Rain ex indeed. Best thing I ever did for my car.

    Clean the windows. do it again. Then again. Then rain-ex.

    anything you did not clean is now permanently a part of the windshield.

    Or, next time you are over here, I'll do it for you.

  7. Lois - thank you my dear. I hope you and your hubby are happy and safe tonight.

    Wild Deuce - both, I've put in a lot of hours and traveled a lot in the last couple of weeks, but all is good on the home front.

    Rev. Paul - I will, a finger of Jameson, a talk with my heart, a hot shower, a thanks to my God, and then off to sleep.

    45er - given the "splat" and squishy noise they made hitting the window. Some may well have been.

    RabidAlien - The stuff works great, but not so great if it's in your shop with boxes of stuff from the last move.

    Doom - thank you. Be well.

  8. I have to say that's one thing I really don't miss about the midwest, not that we don't get tornadoes here.
    Have a great night!

  9. Welcome back. "Miles to go before I sleep, I have etc.." Sleep in a good place is always the first thing after a long one.

  14. The storms completely missed me, just a little sprinkling of rain. I caught up on sleep but was up again at 4 a.m., but the weekend is coming up.

    Thank you all for your nice words. Been an extremely hectic couple of weeks work wise.

  15. I'm throwing in my pitch for Rain X. Found it in use at a local FBO where they were prepping a helicopter for some upcoming rain. Now we use it on our 'copter, boat and cars and trucks! LOVE it!

I started this blog so the child I gave up for adoption could get to know me, and in turn, her children, as well as share stories for a family that lives too far away.

This is for them. I share it, but it is ultimately a gift to my family. Links here should be work friendly, kind and safe for kids. If they are not, please let me know.

You're welcome to post what you wish on your blog - but even if I like you, it doesn't mean I want my family to read it.
