Rain Rain Rain

We have been hunkering down from the rain.  I bought a fancy weather station for Christmas.  It mounts on the roof and tracks the wind, rain, and temps, etc and transmits the data to a display in the dining room.  It is pretty neat, especially the rain part.  We had 1.7 inches yesterday measured from Midnight to Midnight.  Our worst day in February recorded 2.26 inches.

I have been making quilts.  I have made 8 since January 1.  I invented a “recliner quilt” that is a personal size, about 46 x 70, that is used whenever one just wants to relax with a book or TV show….OK…book.  I monogram them with the persons initial and also put my initials and date in small letters.  May be they will be kept by the respective family members when I am up enjoying the wonders of heaven.  I got the idea from my grandma who made a family quilt with a family tree on it.  Its been around for about 100 years.  I inherited it and passed it along to my son.  Its actually kind of fun although it doesn’t seem like a very manly thing to do…. unlike rescuing cats.

I bought a small gadget on Amazon that measures the amount of electricity that any given device uses and displays the result in dollars and cents.  You program in the PUD rate per Kwh and it is retained and used for calculations.  To measure something you just plug it into the device and let it operate as normal.  The longer you leave it the more accurate the results.  When you read the display, you get the results in cost per hour, day, week, month, and year.  The results are sometimes shocking.  Oh, its called a “Kill a Watt” by P3 company.

Spring is coming.  We can mow, mow, mow.
