What storm?..

 When I left work this evening the sky to the north looked ominous. It has been 90 to 100 degrees and humid for the last three days.  The skies lighted as I drove south. We never had any thunder or rain this evening. Maybe later tonight will be our turn. One of the two customers that have my personal cell phone number called after dinner in a panic since his credit card software was not working. I needed information from the office so I got connected to my computer at work. Almost immediately I was disconnected and could not get reconnected.

I brought up the regional radar and there was a huge red and purple blob over my office. I tried several other machines at work and eventually they all dropped off when their battery backups failed.  Tomorrow should be a joy as people get to work and find out that nothing is working. Me, I have a 7:30 am appointment with a customer working from the kitchen table. I may work from home after that. 

Tonight DS3’s car came home from the shop. The mechanic said that their was no damage to the suspension and such of his car. The car did need tires, we knew that when we bought it. We put four new tires on the car. They also put a few screws into the plastic part of the bumper so that it would not hang down. Our next project (DS3 and I) is to figure out if we can replace the plastic bumper cover.  It would appear from doing web research that the part is available for 50 dollars new and the old one should un-bolt and the new one should bolt back on. I hope the damage is just cosmetic.

It seems that DS3 (according to Facebook) is back in a relationship. It’s tough to keep track.  Back on Sunday when we had not heard her name for a few days we asked and were told that it was over. I guess not.  DS1 worked today. He spent a few minutes after he came home telling me stories about work. That was kind of neat. DS2 worked the evening shift. He came home a few minutes ago. He is battling with his employer to get more hours. They want to keep everyone under 30 hours. It’s tough to pay bills and set money aside during the summer when you work less than 30 hours a week.  DS3 was off today. He hung out with one of his high school ROTC friends.

I ate lunch in Belmar at the boardwalk. It was nice to breathe the salt air and eat my sandwich. It really was not very cool at the beach. Maybe next to the water it was cooler, but back on the boardwalk it was as warm as back at the office (10 miles away). My DW worked a full day. She went to yoga tonight while I worked tech support. I was going to go with her. I need centering..

My pictures tonight come from my visit to the boardwalk. Enjoy!
