I'm an American living in Kelowna, BC (Canada) with my husband, Eric. I miss the Peet's Coffee and Mexican food that is so easy to find in my beloved San Francisco Bay Area. But not the traffic. Having given up driving way too fast, I still stay up way too late and drink way too much coffee. I own and operate Computer Care Kelowna, a mobile computer business providing on-site service for home and small business customers. My weekly column, "Getting Along With Your Computer" appears Mondays on castanet.net. The column archive is available any time at the Computer Care Kelowna website.

Pretty Good Thunderstorm

I was at the last Falcons baseball game of the season.  The sun was shining, and then … we were in the middle of a thunderstorm.  A big honking thunderstorm. Rain in Kelowna, BC (mp3) Too bad the Falcons won’t have a chance to make up that game.  It was lucky I left the ball …
