Merry Christmas!

I hope your holiday was great.  We had a relatively relaxed day.   It felt off but things are changing.   The kids are getting older and I am not ready.  

What was on your Christmas wish list?

Did you get it?

I got something unexpected.  A weather station. Where we live, the weather can turn deadly in seconds.   This will give us real time information and help keep us safe.   I have wanted one for years but they are expensive.   This isn't top of the line but far from the cheepest.

When the weather gets ugly, I turn on the ham radio.   Eyes on the sky help accurately locate the worst areas.   Being able to share the wind speed and rain fall will help others around me know what is coming.

Yes I am a nerd.  I am happy about getting a weather station for Christmas and a better 2 meter radio is on the wish list.   I would say that I must be getting old but I would have been happy getting the same gift 20 years ago.  

I am just that much of a nerd.  

My kids all had a great Christmas too.   LOTS of squeals and happy faces.  


  1. Congratulations in the country where the warning sirens don't reach, I understand watching the weather and wanting advanced notice. So happy you and your kiddos got what you wanted.

    Merry Christmas and Blessings...

  2. squeals and happy faces are perfect on Christmas.


  3. Sounds just about perfect. Happy for you all and hope that Dragon will be able to cut down on his work hours a little now.
