Not much going on today. The temps are beginning to climb and the sun has returned, at least for awhile.
The Olympics are on, but I just can't get fired up about them. A few years ago I would have been glued to the set for the entire event, but the interest just isn't there any more.
A trip to the Pep Boys today to get a transmission leak fixed, but they didn't have the parts so back I go on Wednesday when the parts are supposed to arrive.
The temperature today hit 90 with lots of sun. Great day for visiting and getting out of the cave to see the world.
This year the parks WIFI has been less than stellar. So much so that I have had to switch back and forth from the park to my Verizon to get a workable signal. This month has been especially bad and I got notice the other day that I had used 90% of my 10 Gb of Verizon airtime with 11 days to go before it reset. As I was debating what to do I read yesterday that Al of The Bayfield Bunch had just switched to Millenicom as his new provider. I though maybe this was an option that I needed to explore. My first question was how good is the coverage and not finding a coverage map on their site I emailed and requested one. Much to my surprise their response was very revealing, they sent a link to the Verizon coverage map and said their footprint is the same. Once it was established that they are using the Verizon network it was a no brainer (even for me) to make the switch. I will go from 10 Gb of data a month to 20 Gb at $10.00 less a month than I'm paying now with the same coverage. The new equipment should be here Thursday or Friday. Thanks for the heads up Al.
After a couple of nice days here is the forecast we are looking at today.
Tuesday - Overcast with a chance of rain, then a chance of snow and a chance of rain in the afternoon. High of 45F. Breezy. Winds from the NNW at 15 to 20 mph. Chance of precipitation 40% .
Well the forecast was right and during the heat of the day it's 42 degrees and it has drizzled all day. Me and the propane man had another exchange today, my money for his propane. Looking forward to the weekend when things are scheduled to improve.
