WeatherBug is a cool little app that runs in your system tray (the little thingy next to the clock in Windows) and tells you the current temperature and other shtuff.
Rain in LA January 10th, 2001 @ 3:32 pm PST
People in LA really freak out when it rains. I haven’t seen any real rain here yet, although it’s drizzled once or twice. A few nights ago we got <sarcasm>almost one half-inch</sarcasm> of rain and you would’ve thought it was the Great Flood. There were over 400 auto accidents on one stretch of the 405 […]
weather in Los Angeles and Florida December 18th, 2000 @ 7:36 am PST
<understatement>One of the little differences between California and Florida is the weather.</understatement> Today we are under a “Severe Wind” warning. What the heck does that mean? In Florida we were always under “Thunderstorm” warnings or “Tornado” warnings” or “Torrential Freakin’ Downpour” warnings. I don’t really know what to do to prepare for “Severe Wind”. I […]
Big Bang Boom Baby July 31st, 2000 @ 2:09 pm PDT
It’s times like this … when I’m sitting here and the world outside goes from bright and sunny to dark as night in an instant … when a terrible torrential Tampa tunderstorm erupts out of nowhere … when the lightning smacks so close that the sound and the fury are simultaneous … when I can […]
Biblical Rain July 15th, 2000 @ 3:57 pm PDT
Today it has rained. Rain. Lots of rain. Biblical rain. Tampa, Fl? Very wet. Just thought you’d like to know. I slept. Lots of sleep. Biblical sleep. David V. Gagne? Very well rested.
The Rain June 17th, 2000 @ 3:45 pm PDT
Insert torrential downpour here.
ADSL Hell June 17th, 2000 @ 12:19 pm PDT
I was just in the middle of reading about TheBrad’s journey through ADSL Hell when the thunder began a-rollin’. Hard core thunder. Thunder such that you would be hard-pressed to determine if what you were hearing was thunder or someone trying to recreate the running of the bulls at Pamplona in your attic. Thunder so […]
A Hard Rain June 15th, 2000 @ 12:12 pm PDT
I guess I really should say something about the fact that last night it rained the most and the hardest and the craziest and the lightningest that is has here in at least two years. It was an amazing downpour. It was biblical. Did I mention that the block of condos behind mine – like […]
Itchetuknee Springs May 27th, 2000 @ 4:03 pm PDT
Sylvia and I went to Itchetuknee Springs today. I’m not sure if that’s how you spell it. I’ll check the brochure later. We both got fricaseed in the blazing Florida sun. It was a very slow, leisurely 3 1/2 hour inner-tube ride down the perpetually 72-degrees-F Itchetuknee River. Afterwards we went to Karen’s Sandwiche Shoppe […]
House March 20th, 2000 @ 12:11 pm PST
Buying a house is just about the most stressful thing I’ve ever done! This is crazy amazin’ insane. I am pulling my hair out and sweating buckets. It doesn’t help that the A/C is broken in my office so it’s 100 degrees in here. I have never really dealt with hundreds of thousands of dollars […]
