There’s some interesting weather happening around the country at the moment. Let’s take the weather in Spring Hill, Kansas for example. It’s cold this morning in my home town – in fact, so cold I have my thermostat set at 69 degrees, but it is only 66 degrees in the house. Apparently my furnace can’t keep up! We just aren’t built for this kind of cold I guess. It’s almost lunchtime and only 3 degrees outside; with windchill it’s -15. That’s cold enough to close a few schools in the area…the east coast is covered in snow as well.
I was talking to a friend of mine in Hawaii (did you know that I lived on Maui for a couple of years?) and she said that the waves are crashing in the north shores of all the islands. This is attracting surfers from everywhere to get in on the action!
Here’s a pic from yesterday afternoon of a 40 foot wave courtesy of @aloharoyale:
Supposedly this is the biggest surf in over a decade. That’s exciting for some, but even when I lived there, and I was in the best shape of my life, and I swam every day, I would never tackle surf like this. Maybe I’m just not built for it…but I’ve been in 10 foot surf which is HUGE. 40 feet just spells doom for a guy like me!
Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to be sitting on the beach watching this 40 foot anomaly, but alass, I’m in my office clapping away at the keyboard. Oh well, there will be time for vacation fun soon, today I just need to plan on staying warm if I can so that’s what I’m going to focus on!
What to do? It’s given me some great ideas on a few minor changes to our Mission Repair website and some pricing that was due to change. So starting today, you’ll see a wave of markdowns on a few key services and repairs (Samsung Galaxy SIII glass repair for example) so Troy and I will post those price changes today.
Stay tuned…stay warm, or if you’re in Hawaii, stay dry.
Take care, Ryan
