Greetings, readers. That’s how long it is supposed to rain in my corner of the world. No, it’s not the biblical 40 days and 40 nights, but it sure will feel like it. I see some flight simulation in my future because I’m going to need to look at blue sky, either real or artificial.
I’ll certainly take this over freezing rain or snow, but with a number of errands to do today, I’ll have to put on several layers, including a hat or an umbrella just to step out the apartment door without getting soaked to the bone. That’s the biggest thing I hate about winter and early spring. In the summertime it is 80 degrees F. If you want to go outside, you just go outside. In the winter time, it is boots, mittens, down coat, scarf, and hat, just to protect you from pneumonia.
Back to our weather at hand, we had two beautiful days, Tuesday and Wednesday, and now it feels like we are paying our dues. Granted, we’re not sitting in the middle of a hurricane nor having tornadoes, but rain this hard for February is rare.
On a completely different topic, I finished binge watching Star Trek: Enterprise. It was a delightful show and I enjoyed it much more in seasons 2, 3, and 4. As like with any TV series, in the first season actors are learning their roles, peaking and tweaking, and there really isn’t much to the back story of the characters. The show was considered a mild flop. Last evening I saw on a YouTube video that the executive producers were not only getting Enterprise going but were also finishing up Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and a Star Trek feature film. I think it was too much on their plates. As well, with Star Trek: Deep Space Nine was just ending, perhaps viewers just needed a break from Star Trek. If Star Trek: Enterprise had just waiting two or three years, it might have gotten the standard seven-year run.
Finally, I am uploading a YouTube video as we type this blog entry for my new gaming channel, the JMK Gaming Channel. I’ve spent the last week to ten days putting up approximately a dozen videos of Fishing Planet, Out of the Park Baseball 18, and Train Simulator 17. I’m planning to add more games soon. I’m going to contact a couple of hardcore gamers whom I am friends with and ask them to critique me. One of them, who goes by the handle Squirrel, I am sure will give me an honest answer about my performance.
Okay, there is today’s entry. It sounds like the rain has calmed down a wee bit. I’d better start building my ark now, or at least rent a paddle boat. Rebecca and I will see you next Wednesday with entry #702. I bid you all a wonderful weekend, try to stay dry if you are in the rain zone, take care and happy reading.
