Couple hours to enjoy before I head in for my 3 PM to 7 AM shift
Weather looks relatively quiet, which sort of sucks actually, since the time is more likely to drag.

Carol noticed I'm slated to work Noon-8 PM and 11 PM-7 AM this Saturday
Hoping to switch the first shift to be 3PM-11PM, since I'd rather just do 16 straight than have a 3-hr break.

Contracts were eligible for renewal and phones eligible for upgrades, so Carol and I should see new ones arrive in the mail today
Since I'd updated Carol's old phone to the latest Android release several weeks ago, the change shouldn't be too traumatic for her ;-) . On the bright side, things which weren't working on the old phone any longer (like the Square app) should work just fine...

Finally got around to doing the "normal" part of our taxes
Just need to wait for my tax date with Carol on Sunday to finish her portion. Already looks like our Jamaica trip will be "free" though, which is nice.

If someone can't hear they are often mute as well (or speak very little due to the difficulty of it when one can't hear their own voice)
However, the longer I stay in this job the more I'm convinced that a startlingly high percentage those "above" me are deaf yet far from being mute. This vexes me.

I'd discovered during the early part of Winter that I couldn't do as much weight on the Bowflex as it got colder, due to the resistance rods becoming less flexible (our basement isn't really cooled/heated so the temperature varies a lot between winter and summer)
As hoped/expected, now that things are getting warmer things are getting easier and the "weight" has increased to or above what it was in the fall. Will be curious to see where things are by summer when it's really warm down here.

That's great you're using the strap +Tom Hultquist.  The Rod Rejuvenator will help with keeping the rods, nice and straight and you can keep it connected while working out, you just disconnect the rods for each exercise. We have great reviews from customers in your same situation.

GEMPAK issues have been vanquished, so just need to finish coding things into the post-processing
HopWRF will soon have ensemble neighborhood probabilities for maximum 1-hr, 3-hr, 6-hr, and run total for various thresholds of precipitation, reflectivity, updraft helicity, upward vertical velocity, and 10 m wind speed.

Looking forward to a fun day with Carol... doing taxes. Ok, maybe not fun
But, it is a day.

Darn, Lake Minnetonka isn't quite thawed yet. Would be a nice chance to see how the forecast high waves for Sunday work out
Here's the output for 6 PM Sunday after a day of brisk north winds and cold advection.

Argh, version of GEMPAK on here is too old and can't do what I need
So, time to download the latest binaries and hope they work, because I really don't feel like dealing with compiling crap at the moment. On the bright side, once the latest version is installed I should be able to get things done relatively quickly.

Spent a few nights at the end of our honeymoon 15 years ago, plan to spend a few nights this year. Had no trouble making the arrangements, the staff was helpful and friendly, we can't wait for the trip.
