As if I were talking about the weather...

Which I am. I mean, for god's sake: on top of having more storms so far this year than I can remember while living here, we've actually had hail twice. Hail is something we get once every two or three years, and it's usually the kind that melts immediately. Both times the hail was large enough to stick around for a bit. And the wind. Almost every storm is windy, now.

This probably wouldn't be so bad if we didn't live in a poorly-built double-wide. That, and we're almost completely surrounded by trees that are close enough to fall on the house. The silly part is that I'm probably more worried about the power going out, so I have to stop writing unless I want to risk losing some of my work. ;/

Just make sure none of your neighbors put out lawn flamingos Those attract tornadoes and with the weather you are already seeing being in a trailer at all is tempting that fate already.

We have a few confederate flags and lawn jockeys in this area. ;/

Argh! Twelve hours after the last storm, we got another one (quite flashy). And twelve hours after that one, right now, we're about to have another storm. Except this one has a tornado warning, like almost half of these storms seem to have this year.

It's really getting annoying... It feels like half the year's been rain and storms so far. We've probably lost power more times to storms this year than the last three, and this year is only half over. It's somewhat nerve-wracking, but I'm mostly annoyed because it keeps interrupting my writing. Which I have trouble focusing on to begin with.

I'm sorry for all the weather problems you've been having. It's too bad you can't divert some of it to Nevada.

Try to get a netbook with a good battery. Even among the cheapest ones there are models that give you 6 hours of autonomous work or more. Some of the newer eeePCs boasted 13 hours. My 1005HA is almost two years old now, but even its worn battery gives me more than four hours of "I don't give a shit" to all and any power issues. Perfect for writing :D

Three storms and two power outages later... I'm back? Eh. This is ridiculous. Six storms in a week.

I can't afford a laptop. The only reason my sister has one is because she needed one for college and our father was willing to buy it for her. Me? You don't waste money buying sunglasses for someone who doesn't have a bright future, much less one at all.
