Help Hurricane Survivors via iTunes

Apple is now using the iTunes Music Store to accept donations to help the survivors of Hurricane Katrina. This is an excellent idea to me. I already have an account, I trust them and I have money in my account. It’s really easy and a really smart way to accept donations. Please, take a few […]

Help New Orleans & the Red Cross

It’s times like this that we are reminded that even $1 can help out. If you can, please donate to the American Red Cross. A minimum of $5 is needed to donate online.

Rainbows are Circles

I was watching the news this morning and they had video footage of someplace in Colorado, or somewhere, where they saw a rainbow up in the sky. The interesting part was that it never touched the ground and went in a complete circle. The weather man said that all rainbows are circles. The only problem […]

Rain, Wind and Garbage [updated]

Big storms rolled though early this morning and brought with them a lot of excitement. The power flickered, we had pea sized hail, very strong winds and heavy rain. It rained so hard it was hard to see the neighbors house. Course we were worried about our garbage as it was on the curb for […]

A Sunny Snowy May Day

Well, talk about odd weather. Yesterday was May Day and it was sunny. Then cloudy, then windy then snowy rainy sleety. Oh, then sunny again. It was like that all day. You’d look out the window and it’d look beautiful. Minutes later it’d be white with snow showers. Geez. Fun, but this cold weather is […]

April Snow Showers Bring…?

If April showers bring May flowers, then what do April snow showers bring? I guess we’ll find out next month as it snowed today. Nothing accumulating, but it was light snow showers. Seems kinda odd when we were just at 80 a few weeks ago, but that’s the wonderful thing about the weather.

iMac in the Trash (bag)

Since I’ve been working from home for a while, today I decided to go back to the office. However, the weather also decided that this would be the first spring day to rain and storm. So I decided that I’d use a garbage bag as a rain coat for my iMac G5. It even matches […]

21 inches of snow anyone?

The spring snowstorm that was to hit the Twin Cities slipped a little south and blanked our parents. Over 17 inches of snow fell in about 24 hours around Rochester and they’ll be digging out for quite a while. We got around 6 or so, but nothing compared the 21+ that fell around the Iowa […]

Google Weather is now Live

It wasn’t exactly what I had in mind when I wanted Google to do the weather but I’ll have to do for now. In any Google search box you can now type weather followed by a city, state or zip code and get the current conditions and forecast. Nice little feature, however I’m still waiting […]

Google Weather Maps

As I sit here and check out Google Maps I can’t help but think how cool this would be if they added the weather. It’d be the nicest weather map on the internet and could help you track storms right to your front door! I emailed Google and told them that, however I think it’s […]
