Deep in Winter

Hello. Back again after a few months hiatus. The big news I guess is the weather. We have had quite a winter here in South Eastern Virginia. As of today, February 17th, we have had 3 significant snowfalls. The first one was about 3 inches, soon followed by a big winter storm that left us with 8 inches of snow and bad road conditions for several days. The last one left another 3 inches which was quickly melted by rain the next day. I would not be surprised if we have not seen our last snowfall of the winter. Everyone is looking forward to Spring by now.

So what else is new? Let me think for a moment. Ah, as usual technology news. I bought a fancy dash camera for my Honda Element. It records automatically as soon as you turn on the ignition and turns off when you turn off the ignition. It can record in segments of 2, 3, or 5 minutes until it fills up the SD card. It records in 1080i resolution with audio. I have had it for a couple of weeks now and the video is really nice. If I ever get into an accident I will have a video record of it as  it has a g sensor that stops the recording if an impact is detected. Another toy, albeit useful one.

I have also ordered a new tablet to replace my Nexus 7 which has become increasingly sluggish up to the point of uselessness. I ordered a Chinese made 7.9 inch tablet so I will see how it works.

Piano lessons are going well. I never expect to become really proficient but it is a lot of fun and keeps me occupied. Otherwise my time is spent reading, doing Bible studies, taking Max for walks, and photography. I think Max and  I have been to every park there is in the Hampton Roads area. Time for a road trip one of these day.

Enough for now.
