Could have used some of those masks for the smoke this month. I used my finger to wipe what I thought was dust along the hinge area of the laptop I've been using in the car with windows open all this month. That wasn't dust, it was soot!

O.43" in Baldwin. Just enough to give the yard a sip.

boy, that was a whole bunch of nothing except moisture for the grass seed.

Multi, I think I know of a basement depot which should have an abundance of tin foil hats in a nearby county. They actually might help the wifi. I bet you could get a free wall poster of your favorite gun or car thrown into the mix. Also face masks for the epidemic moving up the trade routes.

snap, suppose I ought to get a helmet to wear in the car when I'm at a wifi during these? It would possible make some folks laugh to see me sitting here with one on in a hail storm. Funnier if I put a badminton racket on the dashboard.

Guess I'll go super-clean the downstairs bathroom, aka the innermost interior room without windows.

In Lawrence, the thunderstorms tend to split up and go around us, or just weaken before they hit. Its probably due to KU's weather weapon/deflector.

"they hype it up but then it's not as bad as they say, if we do get any hail it will be pea size."

Was that the message in your fortune cookie?
