    WOTT #329

    I posted a video of the hail storm that we went through last night,  Our local news channels showed another that was taken just west of our house and it was a river of hail rapidly running down the street.

     

    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10152323568579679&l=3921342005708081871 is what it looked like last night.  This was after it had slowed down some and you could actually see.  At one point I could not see the neighbors house across the street.

    WOW! Not what one wants to see out the front door.  Well.....it could have been worse.  Have you checked for roof damage yet?

     

    Thank God the hail was not just the advance act for a tornado.  That looks like a very nice neighborhood.  You'll have the roof repair guys knocking on your door pretty soon.

     

    We are chilly again.  High today in mid-40's with quite a bit of wind so it's not walking weather for me.  I could dress warm enough but the wind triggers the "puffer" oxygen delivery from my portable tank....out of sync with my breathing.  So when the oxygen is delivered while I'm exhaling....it doesn't do any good.

    I could drive to the big, indoor shopping mall over in Independence, MO but it is 10 miles each way....just to have an indoor place to walk.

     

    I hope you all have a great weekend.

    From what I can tell is that the only damage we recieved was to my car. Kinda looks like a golf ball in the right light with all the dimples now.  No broken windshield though, which is lucky.  The hail that got us wasn't as bad as some areas that had softball and grapefruit size.

    I'm sure that most of us have heard of succes stories coming from Kickstarter (i.e. $100 3D Printer) but this smartphone lamp is way cool.  If only I had a $100 or $200 to spare.

    Comcast wins "Worst Company in America" again.  Story here.

     

    Another Comcast article,  FCC slaps Comcast for extravagant fees.

    First part - not surprising.

     

    Second one, well, I wonder if AT&T is still under the Fed's microscope?  The crux of that matter is providers not delivering advertised HSI speeds.  In fact, the FCC has a program sort of like the Neilsen's, where volunteer users receive equipment to monitor speeds and upload them to Big Brother.

    Not sure.  I guess I've been lucky, all my speed tests lately have been really good and constitant between 10.5 and 12.5 down and 1.9 - 2 up
