TWTW September 23rd Through the 29th: When It Rains It Pours And Breaks My Stuff

I don’t know what sort of weather system it was, but on Friday it stormed and poured rain for hours. I’m talking like 8 hours of near-constant downpours.

Bud didn’t care about the pouring rain he just wanted my cookie

The first casualty of the storms was my Playstation 4. A close and loud blast of lightning caused the power to blip. This short lost of power and networking seems to kill my video toy machine. (Days later I did manage to fix the playstation by taking the harddrive out and restarting the thing).

As I was coming home from my Mom’s, I saw that parts of the neighborhood were flooded. The town had some trucks out blocking the roads. Luckily, or so I thought, for me, they were not blocking the road to the house. I noticed that the street was a bit flooded. It must not be to bad. I drove into the puddle. It wasn’t a puddle. The water slammed into my car and started to creep up the hood. I powered through the flood and emerged victorious on the other side.

The next day as I drove around a heard a scraping sound when I hit a bump. I assumed I had got a branch or something stuck under there during my drive through the flooding. When I finally got down on my belly and looked under the car. There was a thick piece of plastic hanging down low enough to hit when I went over a bump. It appeared to have been ripped out of place when I drove through the flood.

I drove the car up on some ramps and took the plastic piece off when I removed the screws holding it up. It seems good enough to put back though one of the screws is missing. I don’t see what the point of this under engine plastic is. You have to take it off anytime you need to change the oil or work on the engine.

Some cool clouds during my long commute on Monday

Music Monday: Mardon Bros – Make You Feel Better

TWTW September 16th through the 22nd: I Have A Long Commute

As I’ve mentioned I have moved. I moved about two hours away from where I have been living for the entire life of this blog. I moved back to the area I group up. I still have the same job. Luckily, they are letting me work remotely Wednesday through Friday. This means I have to be in the office Monday and Tuesday. That makes for a long commute.

Commute was very foggy this week

My alarm goes off at 5:40 in the morning. Until I moved I didn’t even know there was a 5 in the morning. I drove through the countryside in the morning light. I have been staying in a hotel on Monday night to make the stay easier. Don’t know if I am going to keep doing that. It can add up.

A nice path near the place I am staying

Music Monday: Tosco – Busenfreund

TWTW September 9th through the 15th: A Stubborn Dog Makes Me Miss A Comeback

I was at my parents watching the Chicago Bears game. It wasn’t a very exciting game but the Bears were winning by a touchdown. The Denver Broncos were driving near the end of the game with only a couple of minutes left. Bud the dog needed to go out. My mom was going to take him so I could watch the end of the game. He got all excited when she put his leash on. He got all confused as I stayed in the chair and my mom took him toward the door. I was supposed to walk him. He refused to go outside. I took a break during the two minute warning and walked toward the door like I was going to walk him. I opened the door and him and my mom went out. I closed the door and went back to watch the end of the game. He wouldn’t leave and just looked at the door. So he came back in and just stood near me as the game wound up. During a weird sequence at the end of the game the Broncos scored and were going for two points to try and win the game. The got it and I was so upset that the Bears had lost and were 0-2. 0-2 teams don’t go to the playoffs. I grabbed the dog and took him for a walk since I didn’t wanna handle the Bears losing. As I turned a corner I heard a bunch of people in the neighborhood cheering. I wondered if there had been time on the clock left.. no way the Bears came back and won. I checked my phone and sure enough they somehow did.

So Sad I was Leaving
