  1. Marquette is about 45 miles west of where I live. Even further west of Marquette there in pink is getting freezing rain. Already cause a 3 car crash. Munising is with the blue pin. So far Munising is just getting rain. I hope it stays that way. You can't go any further north unless you want to go to Canada.
  2. Tortuga, please send some of that warmth to Michigan. We just got rid of a Winter Weather Advisory at noon (eastern)...got about 6 inches over night Now we’re goin* to be under another one tomorrow thru early Friday morning. Im sick of winter. I feel so so sorry for our 70 something sister from Grand Marais (1 hour and 10 minutes away) she’s been battling snow by herself all winter.
  3. A few years ago, a sister found out we could get that conference call thingy (like used in offices) thru the phone company. Cost for set-up.....$5. Cost per month....$0 And don’t think there’s any limit to number of call ins. A lot better than the last system we had. I think only 2 people could be on the line. All of us were so grateful to this sister for checking on this.
  4. First order of business it was the WT Library (disk) that I was talking about. Secondly I'm back upstairs and EUREKA! It has downloaded. How long it took I don't know, I just left it to itself all day. So I am now up-to-date. Hopefully, whatever has been causing the loss of Wi-Fi to my laptop has been fixed and it won't happen again....one can only hope.
  5. Okay, if this subject has been already covered I apologize. Anyway, due to a Wi-Fi glitch with my laptop I haven't been able to update the Library. Finally got it fixed today and was trying to update (2 gb to go) but it just sits there doing nothing. Is there a problem with Windows 10?
  6. Thought of you right away. :D :D :D :D


    They’re only $27.95

      I know. Just thought of you as soon as I saw the MD shirt/hoodie. :D

  7. Welp, it’s been at 0.1 for an hour. Must have a lot of information (2 gb) to catch up on. So I left it upstairs and I’m gonna get bust doing something else. Yeah I know, a watched pot never boils.
  8. Well, I’m trying it again. So far I have a tiny green stripe. So as usual it didn’t start fast enough to suit me. Just haven’t gotten that good quality of patience yet....boy is it a work in progress. Downloading is still at 0.0
  9. That’s my mission in life....cause all the confusion I can and leave the premises. Ahhhh! Sweet success.
  10. Thanks Teri. You made my day.
  11. I did it again didn’t I. The disk in the laptop. I have a problem thinking people can read my mind. I never explain what I’m talking about...I just assume.
  12. No, I have Charter/Spectrum. Im not on the laptop right now. I was just curious if anyone else was having problems Theres a brother in my congregation that I can ask for help I guess. Sometimes when I open it, it doesn’t respond. I was having a little problem with that last night. That may have been the issue. ill have to work on it
  13. Okay, so while it sits there doing nothing I should just let it sit there.....working in the background? Im a techy illiterate....if that makes any sense.
  14. Looks just like me when my knee gives out in a pile of snow
  15. I don’t think we got that much. Little hard to tell cause of the drift in the back. There wasn’t all that much to blow out of the driveway. Course the back door on the garage always swells up (doesn’t close) and with the garage door open the wind managed to slam it shut. I cant get it open. So I had to walk thru the mound of snow (which you saw Saturday) and get to the fence and go over that to get to the back yard. . Thankfully I had no trouble with my knee. I’ll be listening to the meeting tonight cause I’m not going thru THAT in the dark with my knee. I don’t want to end up flopping like a fish out of water. I do that very well.
  16. This is the current (9 pm eastern) weather map of the U P of Michigan. Looks like the whole part of the UP is snowing.
  17. After being down (ill) starting a week ago last Tuesday it was great to get to the meeting today...even if it was just for the Watchtower. 

    I had that virus thing that’s going around where all you want to do is sleep. Plus with the frigid weather and snowfall that also managed to take what energy I had away when I HAD to clean the driveway. 

    Finally started getting energy back by this past Wednesday. 

    So if you dear friends find yourself totally exhausted for days, just work with it. SLEEP if you can.

      Glad to hear you are on the mend.

      My Mom is here.  Hope she doesn't get sick.:(

      Ooooo, I hope not too. But it is going around. 

      Sleepy with no energy. Yuck!

      Feeling so much better now. 

  18. Watching Weather Channel. Looks like T S Maria could hit islands already hit by Irma. Specifically watching Monserrat as we have an elder and his wife (Pioneers) who go there every year (around December-March) and have some very encouraging reports when they come back. Right now watching and they are saying it could soon turn to a hurricane. Right now by Barbados.
  19. Well, we were under a winter storm warning thru Monday at 7 eastern, but they down grade it this morning to an advisory. It was kinda clear this morning driving to the K H for the meeting. Coming home not so much. It was white out conditions. Not to long after I got home it changed to blue sky/sunshine. Gotta love Yooper (Michigan) Weather.
  20. https://www.jw.org/en/news/legal/by-region/russia/court-upholds-ruling-declare-bible-extremist/ Well, things just got harder for our dear friends in Russia.
  21. Disgusting! Our poor brothers. This is always makes me think of King Sennacherib taunting Jehovah & his people. https://www.jw.org/en/news/legal/by-region/russia/authorities-seize-assembly-hall-of-jehovahs-witnesses/ won’t be long now.
  22. Yes, I keep seeing weather reports for your area.
  23. Well, so far nothing here in my area of the U P of Michigan. Woke up this morning to blue sky & sunshine. But right now around noon the windchill is -12F. Weather guy got that right. Looks like there’s a band over Lake Superior working it’s way toward us. Im still working up the bravery to go outside & check my driveway. Brrrrrr
  24. Yikes almost 92F. Yeah, too hot for me too. For us tomorrow & Tuesday: Wind chills will range from -20F to -30F. Or -29C - or -34C BRRRRRRRRR!!!
