Shit has been beautifully horrible here in the south. The last of the ice melted yesterday after one week. That is 7 days. 7 days of ice on ground in the south...it just doesnít happen and then it did. Most Iíve ever seen is 3 days before full melt. Fucking crazy. Was like I was on a alien planet. It was magical but terrible and BRUTAL. I asked my lover how she could survive Colorado for one winter without wanting to come back and she told me itís a different kind of cold. She was here in town due to a death and said just like there is dry/wet heat there is dry/wet cold. 16F with 20+ mph wind was unlike anything Iíve ever been through. My dumbass stayed up almost 40 hours with my son to watch the 1st event roll in with Uri. Thankfully we only lost power once with the 2nd storm Viola icing up the lines but we were under threat of rolling blackout for days. That 2 hours we were out had the house drop 9 degrees as we donít have insulation yet in attic. 2 hours...what a joke when my brother/sister and so so many people spent 5 fucking days without. Walking on ice is a strange sensation and the sounds are just as strange. Now I have to wait to see if our contractors break the contract to not only chase the $ but umm fix their own shit as they are out of Houston and San Antonio and how could we not blame them? Itís going to be even longer before I get back in home. So much left to do still and now that.

I feel for mentally unstable people in TX/LA right now. Just fuck.

The fucking weather

I just want to see the block work done.
I want the new roof on my workshop
I want to be able to complete the netting at the range.
Until this howling wind and rain fuck off none of the above will happen

Not a golf fan at all but Woods car is looking pretty rough on its side. I wonder why itís actually taken hours for this to hit the air? Hopefully he is still alive.

Update: in surgery right now.

My cousin has a medical exam tomorrow and only finished shift at 8 pm tonight. So thinking it would help her out I said Iíd get us takeout from the Cheesecake Factory (she really likes it) and she wouldnít have to worry about dinner. Door dash failed to deliver the first order, so I asked for a redilevery. Apparently the wrong driver picked up the order. So after 2 orders and 3 hours, my cousin is eating toast and doordash kindly offered to refund me in full. Their service sucks

Old friend of mine let me know she was Covid positive ten days ago and a week ago said she had lost her sense of smell. Radio silence since then. Starting to get concerned.

Also, while the implants are doing fantastic for me with understanding conversation, music is still just odd beeps and boops and static. Seems a minor complaint with what I mentioned above, but in the far past destressing would involve music. And that's still inaccessible.

Indeed.

See also all the other gig economy wildly unregulated "food delivery" services like UberEats...the costs of the service are insanely overpriced, and restaurants use them to sub-plant the need for delivery drivers to be paid on their nickel...but man, you buy like fries and a burger and it costs you $47.00...and half the time the delivery driver eats the food, says it's lost, and you get screwed anyways.

I will actively go out of my way to either do pickup, or use restaurants that I KNOW employ actual delivery drivers and not one of the gig Eats ones. That doesn't even get into lack of employee support and benefits of these poor bastards on their bikes and mopeds.

Stopped in at a regular breakfast stop, a place I go to maybe a couple times a month. I always get the same - bacon, egg and cheese between a biscuit sandwich. I always get packets of hot sauce with it, because it's breakfast - bacon, egg, cheese. This morning I got packets of Ranch dressing instead of hot sauce. Who the fuck puts Ranch dressing on a breakfast sandwich?! You fucking jerk off mother fuckers! It's the first time this has happened. Fucking hot sauce assholes, not fucking Ranch dressing... fucking Ranch dressing. What the ever loving fuck. I will be checking out my order before I drive away to make sure this never happens again. Fuckin' pieces of shit.
