I hope everybody near the nasty storms/tornadoes in America is safe and well.  Matt, I gather Tennessee was hit pretty bad.  Hope you and yours, and your property, are OK.

Bad weather just follows me wherever I go.  ;)

All is well where I live in TN. We had some bad storms, a lot of rain, and some power outages, but nothing I'm not used to after living so long in Florida.

Thanks for asking, Lilly. And thanks to tgy for the PM.  :)

Wow, shows you how far out of it I am ... I heard about the rain in Chicago (because I was watching that game last night) ... and I heard about the rain and the threat of rain in Oakland (because the Yanks are playing there) ... and I knew about the rain in New York (because I was out running in it) ... but I missed the news about the storms and tornadoes in Tennessee.  :o

Sorry, Matt ... glad all is well with you.  :)

Good to learn Matt and KC are OK.   My friend lives in Racine, Wisconsin and she had heavy rain and storms but they are all OK too.    The world weather is going crazy.

I hope no one here has been affected by the floods on the east coast that I saw on the news tonight.

I was complaining about our weather today as it only got up to 13 degrees, but after seeing what's going on in the States,I've got nothing to complain about.

Hope all is well. :)

It's OK in New York City (though we've had more than eight inches of rain in June) but I hear it's pretty bad upstate from here.

Personally, I was only affected by the baseball game getting rained out on Saturday and rescheduled on Sunday ... so I guess I have to count my blessings. It was getting quite annoying having to carry an umbrella and rain jacket to work every single day, though.

tgy, I trust that is 13° C!  :o

Hold down the ALT key, pres 0176 on the number keypad, and let up the ALT key. ;)

I do it another way but that way will work.

More handy keyboard shortcuts here ...

Thank you for clearing the degree symbol mystery KC.   I tried a couple of the others on the shortcut website you posted but I wasn't able to get the 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 to work.   The fractions are what  I really want.     :(

I hope the storms have passed now and you can leave your umbrella at home. :)

¼ ½ ¾

They work for me, Lin ... are you sure you're using the number keypad, to the right of the main keyboard?  :)

You can also download a little freeware program from the Internet and just use easy to remember shortcuts ... it's what I use.

It has stormed here in Northeast Texas the past two days. I cannot remember the last time we got thunderstorms here in July and I have been here all of my life.The rain and thunder is very pleasant and nice because death seems easier sometimes then Texas summers.

Well, they say there's nothing certain but death and Texas ... er, taxes! ;)

I'm surprised to hear you seldom get thunderstorms there in July though ... it's probably the biggest month for them up here.

Violent thunderstorms with drenching downpours off and on all day today in New York ... and a tornado in Westchester County (just to the north)!  :o

I got caught in a couple of downpours on the way home from work (fortunately, in Midtown Manhattan there's plenty of shelter) ... then went out for a run in Central Park in stifling humidity, but no rain and actually quite a bit of sun. I then betook myself about a mile downtown to visit a friend who's just moved into an apartment on Tenth Avenue with a stunning view of the Hudson. When I left around ten P.M. ... no rain in sight. I no sooner got indoors and turned on the computer than it began to pour outside again ... and I hear the thunder rumble. I should probably turn the thing off till this passes.

We had one of the wettest Junes on record, and it's beginning to look as if July won't be a heck of a lot drier!  :o
