Weather came through when I wanted to walk

Well you know the saying about best-laid plans of mice and men. About the time I got free to take that walk last night we got more severe weather. Tornado watch severe weather, with high straight-line winds, and much lightning. But when I went shopping today the app seems to be counting outdoor steps just fine. But I’m still not seeing the daily bonus coins after I click on the designated ad.

C’est la vie.

Bored, bored, bored

With the weather being wet still this morning I’m still stuck in the house. If I had shoes I could wear in the wet I could go for a walk in the rain and not worry about it. Seriously, the rain wasn’t a problem but the water on the ground was. Drainage has been an ongoing issue in the neighborhood for years, with some areas still ankle-deep for days after heavy rain. Intersections seem to be the worst problems as the profiling puts deep spots at each corner of an intersection without giving an outlet for that water to leave. The crowning of the street blocks the water from going to the other side after it drains out of the middle, inundating pedestrian space while keeping the “car part” of the street clear. And thus the “nobody walks” becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy, as pedestrian spaces become unwalkable.

In other news we have a house-guest spending some time here as issues at home are worked out. Nothing more I can say about that.

On the gathering crypto-currency front, they assure me my app is fixed, but I need someplace to walk before I can check to see if they’re right.

And there’s a barn-burner of a race from Fontana CA on the flat screen. In ten laps I’m wrapping this up and going for a walk.
