This weekend we went through some insane weather. Namely just torrential amounts of rain and constant wind. Thankfully the only “damage” is the fact that our outdoor furniture got strewn about mercilessly. Last week we had a leak in the living room, on one of the days we were getting some horizontal rain. Thankfully the roofer was able to come out Wednesday, and while he didn’t see any smoking guns… he did notice that our flashing was raised. After tamping back down and re-caulking everything, it seems to have worked because we more or less made it through the weekend without any more water slowly dripping down from the beam running across the room. So far so good… and while I am joking with the image above I am thankful that nothing bad really happened. I know within an hour and a half of the house there was some massive flooding that for the most part caused houses to disappear in the rising waters. Even within my own town while I drove around on Saturday and Sunday there was a significant amount of flood happening in small pockets. The only thing that really seemed to take on water was a little bit seeping into the garage underneath the garage door. Our front lawn however looked like an archipelago… with lots and lots of standing water.
As far as gaming went I spent a significant amount of time snuggled up on the sofa in a fuzzy blanket playing Star Wars the Old Republic on my laptop. I am going through what always feels like the rough patch empire side, which is Taris to Hoth. No matter what game you play it… Taris is a shithole. I mean it is less horrible when you are visiting it at night like you do during the empire campaign… but it is still horrible. Similarly Hoth is this giant bluewhite wasteland with music that seems to put me to sleep in a way that only snowcloak can. As a result I am just trying to stay focused on the end goal, which is finishing up this class and getting on to other things. The positive however is that the Imperial Agent storyline just keeps getting more interesting, which is shockingly not something I expected. I don’t really go for the whole espionage thing, and while I found bond movies interesting as a child… it was never really a life goal. Whatever the case however I am finding myself drawn into the story, at the very least enough to keep moving forward. I am however looking forward to taking a break tonight to get some Final Fantasy XIV friendtime in before returning once more to the story grind.
