DARK SKY

Oregon Autumn and Winter are well on their way.  Rainy and windy, grey and cool.  Some would say cold but it's all relative.  Nasty messy stuff at the least.

I'm babysitting my granddog for a bit.  My kidult has turned her cold into pneumonia, sinus infection and an ear infection!  I figured since I can't watch both babies because I'm fighting off the same cold ... the least I could do is take the big dog.

My techno nephew told me about the app Dark Sky.  I've been using it rather than the weather app that came with the iPhone.  Today, though, it proved its $3.99 worth!  It made my phone make a little noise and showed the message "light rain coming your way in 8 minutes."  I quickly put on my jacket and grabbed Bosko who did his duty in a timely manner.  We were home before the rain started!



Here I sit, smug and warm.  Technology is one of my best friends!

  1. Wow, that's a pretty cool app! I wonder if it works for other areas. I'll have to look at it.

    Dog sitting is sure to be a big help to the family right now.

    1. Yep! It works for any address ... or just city/state/country!

      The darned dog sure keeps me company!

  2. We still have grandma phones - can you believe it? But we're getting smart phones very soon. My husband will love that app. Hope your cold gets better soon.

    1. I have no land line! Every once in a while, I need to fax something ... but not often enough to pay for a line.
