This past weekend was graduation at KU…. and there was a member of the “family” that was walking down the hill.
Not only was it Ashley Lafond‘s graduation, but this Saturday happened to also be her birthday. I dropped by for a little over an hour on Sunday afternoon and said hi, brought a card, and got some snaps with the new Rebel.
One shot that they tried to get was a shot of me with Ashley. The apparant complexaties of the Camera turned out to be the fact that I had forgotten to hit the “On” switch. When I realized my mistake and tried again, they got the shot twice — the Rebel was in “burst fire” mode — 3 frames in a second 🙂 However, Allison only held it down long enough to get two shots
last night, we got 0.9 inches up at the top of the hill where I’m located
As many can tell by the messages left here by the weather office, we had a thunderstorm pass through. Here at home, we had moderate wind, very little (if any) hail, and a lot of rain. I haven’t had a chance to check the rain gauge.
As of about 7:15 this morning, 2.6 inches of rain have fallen where I’m located.
We had quite a storm head through here, prompting a severe t-storm warning.
Wind wasn’t that bad here, but we did get some rain, and they just issued a Flash Flood Warning.
About half an inch fell during the first storm, another 2/10s has fallen in subsequent storms
I’ve did a little messing around with using syndicated RSS feeds from the National Weather Service, and a Yahoo! email list related to Dance Teams.
As of the end of Sunday evening, the picture count stands at 22,365. 357 shots have been “counted” since I went to the new Digital Rebel — $50 worth of film and processing with 10 36-exposure rolls at $3 and $2 processing per roll — not to mention time I would have to spend scanning, as I was digitizing everything anyway :).
If I keep this up, I ‘ll have taken enough pictures to pay for the 1 GB card by mid-June, and will slowly be working on the cost of the camera. I just sent the first payment.
