The little weatherman who lives in my phone alerted me just a bit ago about a storm blowing in Saturday through Monday night:
This storm has unusually cold air for may and could drop snow levels into the higher valleys on Sunday and Sunday night. All mountains and high valleys are threatened to receive significant snowfall. The west central Colorado mountains may get over a foot of new snow.
I’m not at all surprised, but some folks surely will be. Every time we’ve had out of town guests for our Independence Day happenings I’ve implored them to please, please, please remember to bring warm coats… Every time we’ve had out of town guests for our Independence Day happenings I’ve ended up freezing my nuts off after giving up my coat. We haven’t had guests at that time since returning to Dinkytown, but I’ve already vowed that I will not give up my coat again and I’m going to be very sure to make it known before they depart from their warmer climes to travel here.
In other news, the ass clown of whom I wrote earlier rang my phone this afternoon. I knew it was him without even looking at my phone because he’s the only one to whom I’ve assigned a ringtone that is a female voice saying, “An idiot is attempting to reach you on your cellular device”. 😀 His call came after my official office week had ended, and he wasn’t on my must-do list of priorities for the day anyway. I’ll call him back on Monday. There’s no crisis…
Oh, wait, there is too a crisis. Just as I was about to call this post done and take my sorry heathen ass off to bed my DNS server punked out on me. I don’t get it. It was running just fine, hasn’t been reconfigured or upgraded recently… now it won’t do recursive queries for my LAN. It still tells the world about my servers, but it won’t tell my own machines about the rest of the internet outside of my own network. What fun. I’m going back to that now.
Be well, friends and neighbors, and have a better evening than I’m having!
