Friday Memo: A nice weekend … Rider zapped … Landline poll
Hey, did you notice there was thunder and lightning last night? Ha! Some of the lightning was spectacular. It’s going to rain again this afternoon, but lightly, say forecasters, but things are going to get better tomorrow, as in partly sunny. Really. Sunday, too. The temperature tomorrow could hit 73 and on Sunday it could go to 76. Thank goodness.
How about the motorcyclist who survived the lightning strike? What a story. We’d love to have a talk with him, although he apparently doesn’t remember what happened.
Do you still have one of these? Reports continue to come in that say fewer and fewer people have landlines in their homes. How about you? Do you still have a landline? Vote in our poll. (Mobile users can find our poll here.)
