I got up in the mid-afternoon to get going for a food delivery from my daughter Tracy through Mike. He delivered some smoked chicken wings, pico de gallo, hot sauce and chips from the Mexican restaurant she works at. I had two ripe avocados I wanted to make guacomole with, which is made basically by combining the pico de gallo with the smashed up scooped out avocado. I put some on some of the chips for a delicious appetizer. I had some coffee first, along with watching some of the late afternoon Nats/Braves baseball game, won by Atlanta. I then heated up the other big item brought to me, smoked St Louis style ribs made in Tracy’s new smoker, which was really delicious, along with some deli potato salad. Later I watched some of the White Sox/Oriole game which ran late due to a rain delay in Chicago, along with the ESPN broadcast of the late Los Angeles based Yankee/Angel game, won by LA 7-5. along with the usual late night show fare and a few long talks on the phone with Ray M. I also had some prune juice and hot and spicy low sodium V8 before dinner and a few cashews well after dinner. I continued to work a bit more on the newly “hatched” Weatherquack weather website which should be fun in the coming months. I hope some of you out there will join in the fun on Weatherquack http://www.weatherquack.com – it is completely free and easy to use once you complete your registration and a short ramping up period. I also drank a good part of my ginormous water bottle throughout the evening and early morning hours.
On Channel 4 radar at 0550, there are showers out in parts of OH, KY, IN, and IL with more up in NE Michigan expending well into much of central Ontario. Nothing really moving our way in the short term.
