Spoke a Little To Soon
So last night after I got finished making my fear of drought post talking about how hot it's been and how dry the top soil is we got clobbered by a typical June fast moving thunderstorm. Knocked out our power for over an hour and did a number on my computer once again.
All told we got about half an inch of rain over night and most of the day today was overcast and relatively comfortable. Then the clouds moved off and the sun came back with even more humidity to make us suffer under. Tomorrow is suppose to be worse.
However the rain made the first couple of Buckwheat sprouts pop out this evening. Only in the shaded parts that were still damp though so I hope to see more tomorrow. If not I might have to broadcast some more seed as I have noticed the local birds seem to have taken a liking to the tilled strip.
When I got home after my 11 hour shift I settled in to try and fix my computer. It wasn't reading the hard drive for some reason and wouldn't boot up. I got out my spare hard drive and messed around a bit setting the BIOS up to boot from the CD-Rom. Found my copy of Windows and then somehow the thing started working.
At least I can go to bed on time tonight. I think this computer is about on it's last legs though as the main hard drive keeps crapping out on me when something odd happens like the power outage or a fan stops working. Guess it's time to buy the son a new computer so I can get his old one once again.
Oh ya I think this new guy will work out and the slacker/pretender is also worried he may lose some standing with another full time worker coming in. Not only did the new guy catch on to things the pretender was actually talking about how much better he felt and started doing some actual work today too. Perhaps I will be able to go back to part time by the end of this week!!!!
I am so far behind on so much stuff though.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!!
