How's the Weather on Your Side of the Island?

Whereas, the weather never did clear up tonight, photo taken after 5pm. Whereas, the windshield wipers on my motorbike don't work....don't rightly have windshield wipers, that's just an expression....I wasn't able to ride anywhere tonight due to the fowl weather. We're expecting more of the same weather for turkey day, too. Thus it was that I had all night free to think off something coherent to post about, and maybe something even interesting, but how is it, that when you do have the time to post, you don't have the ideas, and when you don't have the time to post, there's all kind revolutionary and unique ideas hitting you from all angles to blog about, but alas by the time you arrive back home at the newsdesk, those same newsworthy ideas have vanished from memory as much as you try your outmost to retrieve them and hammer out your latest post du jour? Bye bye to that Pulitzer. Last night a compact florescent bulb went out in the ceiling track lighting in my kitchen. It's been a few years already that I switched over all of my household lights to compact florescent bulbs. However, I never tossed out the older incadescent light bulbs. Naturally, I replaced the dead compact florescent bulb in the kitchen with a regular bulb and things are so much brighter now. I surmise that compact florescent bulbs get dimmer with age. You won't notice the diminished level of lumens with the naked eye because it sorta happens very gradually. While incadescent light bulbs are more to the point. You flip the light switch and they make that sound and the room still remains dark.

Was nice in Wahiawa. Obama then gave us off from Noon. Don't know if it was for all Fededral. Message looked like it was for the military related folks. Somebody let me know. First time ever that a President gave time off for Thanksgiving Eve. Usually it's Xmas Eve. Hope Obama gives us that.

Nate- well because military folks will be getting the news about their new deployment soon. And btw who shows up to work on this Friday? It's a four-day weekend. There was some union jobs up at Schofield, Nan LLC, I think, but I'm not into riding up all that ways and riding tired back home, especially wet weather season.

You like ride? I'm there at 6:30 am.

Rainy and foggy, with chances of more snow in the upper alps.

Work on the day after Thanksgiving is apparently very common on the mainland. Working in nonprofits all my life, it was just a given to me until I met Chad. We're in Maine for the holiday - it was in the 50s and we sat outside by a fire watching the kids play basketball and tag. Nice way to spend the day!

Nate- right on. The problem is that there's no way of telling how many hours I'll work on any given day pending on the situation. Mostly repairing somebody else's screw-ups. Lot of people in the trade barely know how to read. I know they can write because they endorse their paychecks.

Rowena- the Alps are definitely better to look at in pictures than to be in. Me and cold are like water and oil.

Ann- "....outside by the fire...." sounds like a scene in the movies. Still remember that people in that neck of the woods chill the sodas by sticking the bottles into the snow.

Just came back from Maine and would like to also report that cars are utilized as extra refrigerator space. That's something that can't be done in Hawai'i nei. Perhaps Hawaiian cars can be used as extra ovens on particularly hot days....

RONW said...

Ann- using cars for refrigerators? Now, that's cold.
