there was hail in Colorado Springs, but the mountains got a dusting of snow.
Colorado welcomed me back yesterday with heavy rain, high winds, lightning, hail and 50° cold. I guess Colorado realized that I hadn't seen enough rain in the last six months to even wet the ground, so Colorado decided to remind me what rain actually looks like. Thank you Colorado, I appreciate the reminder, but please don't do that again.
I thought I would take this opportunity to talk about my Verizon unlimited phone plan and let everyone know how things are going. Cutting straight to the chase, the plan so far is working out better than expected.
Last month I used 75 gigs of unlimited gigage and 13 gigs of my allowed 15 gigs of hotspot data. I suffered no throttling that I'm aware of and it was really great not to have to worry about overshooting my limit and having to pay extra or do without.
I have had to change the way I use the Internet but it hasn't been much of an imposition. On my previous plan of 30 gigs a month almost all of my usage was hotspot usage because I played on the Internet using my laptop. But now I play on the Internet using my phone which I sometimes hook up to the laptop and use it as a monitor if I'm watching a movie or something like that. And the only time I'm using hotspot data now is working on my blog on my laptop, paying my bills, or downloading updates for the computer and its assorted software's. I could learn to do more things on my phone that I do on the laptop now, but since I've never run out of hotspot data I see no need to cut back on hotspot data use any further.
The Bass Pro Shop parking lot after the storm. It was still raining so I just stuck the camera out the door and took this picture
There was a beautiful display of Mammatus clouds yesterday after the storm.
