Tropical Storms

The 6th tropical storm of the season, Fabian, is brewing out in the mid Atlantic now, according to the National Hurricane Center. That means time to start getting the hurricane kit prepared. Only a few more months left in hurricane season, but unfortunately, those are the busy months. Hopefully this one doesn’t cause too much trouble. We’ll see in a few days…

One of those days

It was one of those days where you’re trying to get something done that people are asking for yesterday, but you keep getting interrupted by people doing things that should have been done weeks ago. So, a task that probably should have taken 4 hours or so gets started late, and ends up taking about 6 hours to finish. Ugh.

Still Smoked

The chicken wasn’t the only thing that got smoked last week. After 4 days and as many hair washings, my hair still smells like BBQ smoke. When the wind blows from behind me, I smell BBQ and get hungry.

Getting Smoked

My wife’s mom bought a smoker/grill a while ago, and this weekend finally got to use it. What it really means is that my wife and I ended up smoking and grilling just about everything in sight. The last couple of days we’ve been grilling fiends. Grilling/smoking/BBQ’ing is something we’re relatively new at, so each time was a bit of a learning experience. According to our test subjects, all the food turned out very tasty. Once we get a house, we’re looking forward to doing a lot more outdoor cooking.
