In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Weather and Crap

I've heard the official temperature for an area is from a shaded thermometer,five feet off the ground, out of the wind, with a northern exposure. Whether this is true, or not, isn't nearly as important that it's crap.

Where I work, there is no shade, the wind comes and goes, everything around absorbs heat from the sun, radiates it on the surroundings, and the temperature never matches what the weather wizards report.

Today, the official high was around 88 degrees, but my thermometer was around 96 at five feet above the ground and a little over one hundred at two feet above the ground.

So, what's the solution to this discrepancy? There is none.
