July 27, 2008: One final down! One house rented! Heading to Rome.

  One final down!!!!!  Radar is finished.  I think I did well…hoping for an A.  🙂  YAY!  Now one more final to go.  Applied Climate.  Hopefully I can finish it on Sunday or Monday.

  We are moving out on Wednesday.  We have rented a place on Charlotte Ann Drive.  Just a few blocks away!  The plan is to be out of here by Thursday.  We shall see.  LOT to do!!!!!

  Let’s hope the house deal closes.  We are moving either way.  Will just make everything simpler. 

  We are still trying to get these apartments in Graves County.  Not having the best of luck though.  There are six units and they would be nice to have.  They are fairly new.  The lot has room for at least 2 more units.  Perhaps we will hear something this week.  We have looked at them twice in the last year.  They have been on the market for THREE years!  Long time.

  Going out of town on August 11th and will be back on August 26th.  We are going to the Vatican.  🙂  I guess we need to talk to the pope. 


July 26, 2008: FINALS!!

  Oh my, is July almost over?????  🙁  Where does the time go!  🙂  ZOOM ZOOM!

  Finals start today.  I am going to try and take radar first.  Applied Climate second.  I will only be able to finish one today.  It has been a swift semester.  Summer semesters are always that way.  I am anxious to finish the finals and move on.  Unfortunately, next semester will be math.  🙂  NOT a fan!!!!  Thermodynamics is one of the classes.  That just sounds hard!

  A beautiful lightning storm rolled through McCracken County last evening.  We had over 40 lightning strikes within just a few miles of the house.  Tremendous light show and loud thunder.  Daisy enjoyed it!  Temperatures were in the 80s with dew points in the low to middle 70s.  MUGGGGY!  The rainfall came down in sheets.  Visibility was less than 1/2 miles at time.  Winds gusted to 40 mph here in Lone oak.  The clouds were dark and threatening.

  It was one of the heavier rainfalls we have received in the last few months (at least at my house).  WPSD TV 6 reported over .50" of rainfall in less than 30 minutes.  I am sure we had the same here at my house.  This was also one of the better lightning storms we have experienced so far this summer.  Vivid cloud to ground strikes. 

  A severe thunderstorm warning was issued for the southeast portion of the county.  I have not read of any storm damage. 

  We are looking at a rental house today.  It is located just a few blocks away.  Hopefully everything will work out.  We will be moving next week.  That is the plan.  Let’s hope the sale of Ashcreek goes well.  So far there is no reason to think that it won’t.  Especially now that the bank has approved the buyer.  🙂  All good.  I am sure they will love the home.  So many family memories here.  This is a great house for hosting family get togethers.  Now, we move onto the next stage of life!
