And while we're at it YAY STORMS ARE BACK AGAIN! I would like to say that now we are out of the drought. And Garret was right, the farmers weather'd the 5 year drought quite well. The one I used to work for switched over from crops to oilfield contracts, and will switch back to crops when the rains are constant enough. There were a number of people outside of town who's wells ran dry, so hopefully this will help their situation.
At the same time, the storms are back XP After the worst of the wind, I took a run to the outhouse and on the way by noticed that the door to my shed is leaned against the tree. One hinge was pulled out of the door, and the other hinge was broke in half. ... I'll need to buy heavier hinges
And a real door.
As for the computer, there is something screwed up in the cd drive. It had reached the point where the computer couldn't successfully boot, and I unplugged the cd drive to see if I could isolate the problem, and wa-laa! It can boot again. Buuuuut it still took 20 minutes of trying to boot 3 times and a system restore to get it to boot today.
Hense the 'kindof' fixed. Keeping shit running sucks. Cars and computers always break.
