I’m back.

I’m back, sort of. I haven’t posted on this blog for a couple of years now, mainly because of time constraints with my day job. Expect to see some new things soon. At the moment, I’m still in the process of cleaning things up.

Well, I know what I’m doing tomorrow.

As you may or may not know, when you live in the South, you get used to having thunderstorms at least one or two evenings a week all summer long. The heat, humidity, high pressure fronts and low pressure fronts and all the other things meteorologists say to convince people they know what they’re talking […]
