Hey Dad! Why isn’t this thing on?
Well Beans, because it isn’t cold in here. Just outside it is.
A few days ago the wind was really whipping. Although it was sunny the wind was a cold one and we were pretty much confined indoors all day. Now tomorrow Sunday we are scheduled for another high wind day. Being stuck inside all day is a real test of my patience. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining. Well okay, maybe I am a little bit. Let’s just say I am whining a lot. I know many people have it much worse everywhere else right now.
On a somewhat related note, I had an experience much like winning the lottery. I never have wifi and use my cell phone data for most everything I do online. All these years I had a plan with AT&T that gave me 20GB of data each month. Usually that was sufficient. Being stationary for as long as we are in the winter there is a tendency to go over budget and then things move along at dial-up speed if you remember those days. Getting an unlimited data plan would be at an astronomical price and so I never did. The other day I got frustrated for as much as I tried I was still projected to run out a few days early. I got on the AT&T site and checked the “change plan” option and for the first time ever there stood staring me in the face two unlimited data plan options at HALF the price I was currently paying for 20GB! Unbelievable! There must be some mistake. I’m reading this right? I got on a chat with an agent and it was as I saw. I switched over as fast as I could. So this has been a wonderful new aspect of my nomad life on days like these when I am in a weather induced lockdown.
Oh happy days, even though I’d much rather be outside right now.
