    • Cleaning and maintenance is necessary for everything. It is quite important that water coolers are cleaned properly. For this, you can hire cleaning services as well. There is no need to worry about any issues regarding water cooler if you clean that from time to time. https://www.touchedeclavier.com/1383-macbook-pro-unibody-aluminium-13-pouces.html https://www.touchedeclavier.com/1387-macbook-air-13-pouces.html https://www.touchedeclavier.com/12-macbook-pro-unibody-aluminium-15-pouces.html https://www.touchedeclavier.com/514-macbook-pro-retina-13-pouces.html https://www.touchedeclavier.com/513-macbook-pro-retina-15-pouces.html https://www.touchedeclavier.com/1870-clavier-acer-aspire-v3-771-v3-771g.html https://www.touchedeclavier.com/2140-clavier-packard-bell-easynote-te11hc.html https://www.touchedeclavier.com/1871-clavier-acer-aspire-v3-772-v3-772g.html https://www.touchedeclavier.com/2126-clavier-toshiba-satellite-c660-c660d.html https://www.touchedeclavier.com/2127-clavier-toshiba-satellite-c670-c670d.html https://www.touchedeclavier.com/355-convertir-clavier-macbook-air-11-et-13-pouces-en-azerty.html
    • Good Wednesday morning! Lather, rinse, repeat.   And for the most part... it's just us in the southeast.   I hate HOT weather. But hey... beggars can't be choosers. 🙂 Not much in the way of rain over the next 7 days either   Of well... summer in Georgia.  Hope everyone enjoys the day!
    • MD 0732 CONCERNING TORNADO WATCH 210... FOR SOUTHEASTERN ILLINOIS Mesoscale Discussion 0732 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1126 PM CDT Tue May 21 2019 Areas affected...southeastern Illinois Concerning...Tornado Watch 210... Valid 220426Z - 220600Z The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 210 continues. SUMMARY...An isolated threat for tornadoes and damaging wind gusts continues across remaining portions of WW 210. DISCUSSION...Recent convective trends suggest that nocturnal boundary layer stabilization may be contributing to a general trend for more slightly elevated convection across WW 210. The pre-convective airmass remains strongly sheared and weakly unstable (slightly more unstable with southward extent) however, and with storms organizing along linear bands at the leading edge of outflow, a damaging wind threat will continue for the next hour or so at least. A brief tornado can also not be ruled out. These storms are reaching the eastern extent of WW 210, and downstream watch extensions may be considered for this activity. ..Cook.. 05/22/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...
