We have to go to the pharmacy again today as we had to wait for 88 days after last pick up of pills for insurance to pay and it was 87 days on Friday for one of her refills. We had to do the pick up today as she had her pill for this morning but none for this evening.

My friend, Mom and I went and did communications and support for a bicycle ride put on by the school district in the neighboring town. This was a nice time out as we were driving in the hills and country area. We had late evening thunderstorms.

Sunday: On waking the temperature was 66 F. The high for the day was 85 F. We had isolated AM rain. Regular cares for today. Beef stew and homemade bread today.

Monday: On waking the temperature was 60 F. The high for the day was 88 F. Dialysis and chiropractor today. Severe thunderstorms this evening. We (My friend, Mom and I)  were out weather spotting until 10:30 p.m. Dropped my friend off at home and got home about 11:30 p.m.. We were without power from when we returned home till just past 2:30 a.m. Tuesday. By the time the power came back on Mom was already asleep and I was not very awake myself, therefore Mom did not get on her CPAP.

Tuesday: On waking the temperature was 63 F with rain. The high for the day was 83 F. Slept late today because of being up late with storm and power out. Mom woke up tired because of not having her CPAP on overnight. Regular cares today. Took day to catch up on paperwork that was backing up. Wi-Fi provided by our building is down due to damage from the storm last night, at this time no repair time frame has been set so will not be able to check email as often and be able to check hospital charting. Will be using Wi-Fi at friends and dialysis center and if urgent need from my cell phone.

Wednesday: Woke 43 minutes before my alarm clock by NOAA Weather radio for Severe Thunderstorms. On waking the temp was 68 F with fog. First round of storms started about 10 minutes after being woken up by Weather Radio. Second round of storms started just as getting ready to load Mom in car for dialysis.  On way to dialysis had to go around several trees that were down and had to take several detours due to downed power wires and flooded streets. Storm had ended by time we got to dialysis but was still raining. Rain continued til just before Mom was getting out of dialysis. High today was 81 F. Due to rain and distance to rain site for concert in the park we decided not to go to the concert tonight.

Thursday: On waking the temp was 67 F with rain. Thunderstorms at 2:30 a.m. woke us up but we went back to bed. The high for the day was 77 F with rain most of the day  Regular cares today. Went to concert at the local neighborhood center

NOTE: My friend, Mom and I are advanced trained weather spotters but did not go out for the late evening or early morning storms as per local protocol from county emergency management due to safety issues of night viability. We are to report from were we are at and not go mobile. I did report as we were mobile on way to dialysis on Wednesday as was a required trip.

My goodness. The weather sounds like an additional person to care for! Yikes! What a concern! But if you folks are weather spotters, it is right down your alley. Good for you, and I hope you are still able to do all the things you must accomplish and enjoy best.
