Ralph had a big wind in Colorado but it moderated to about 55 or 60 miles per hour by the time it got to extreme Eastern Nebraska. For those of you who have never lived in an open area with nothing to stop a north wind except for say, a grain bin or a tree that might be 3 miles away, you haven't experienced wind. It was enough to make the house vibrate and moan.
It was also enough to adjust my satellite dish to the 'You have limited or no connectivity,' state. No kidding.
That was Friday evening and so the service men left here this morning at 10:45 AM. Why do these kinds of things and sickness always strike on Friday nights? This forces us to use patience. Something we usually do not need to use in todays society.
I appreciate all of the concerns in my comment section as well as emails asking about Marilyn. She is doing poorly by her standards but her Dr on last fridays visit was very pleased. He has told her more than once that 'business owners are the worst patients because of their thinking that things can't operate without them. She stayed away for almost 3 weeks but has been back to grooming for 3 weeks now. Our daughter ran things quite well without her. That was really appreciated. Marilyn will eventually walk without a limp. (until she starts trying to kick me in the rear and then she'll probably start limping again.)
