Hang onto your hat!

Wow...what a difference a day makes... big time weather here in southern Ontario today. The storm came up from the U.S. today, and hit us hard!

A tornado has hit the Town of Angus, which is just south of Barrie... which seems to always be a bad area for this type of weather...They are stopping airplanes from landing at Toronto due to high winds, just one of those kind of days.

Everything that I had planned to do outside today was simply put on hold until tomorrow... you could not trust the weather today for more than 10 minutes, it changed so fast!

Did manage to get out shopping today at Staples. Rick had mentioned a few times lately in his Blog about doing backups for your Windows 7 and Windows 8 Laptops. You can check out his BLOG HERE. Today, Judy pulled out our Lacie Portable Hard Drive to do a backup of her Windows 8 computer, and just managed to get it completed with very little memory left on our 500 Gig HD. So, off to Staples today, and I picked up a 1 Terabyte Seagate Slim Hard Drive. This thing is really small... however it only cost $79.00 after the Guy at Staples felt sorry for me and gave me $10.00 off. So, I blame this cost on Rick! (lol...) I paid more for our 500 Gig one, a couple years ago, than I did for this one with twice the memory... go figure. Hey, we are now fully backed up if we happen to have problems with one of our computers, and have a pile of space to store more photos!

Till tomorrow...



  1. My daughter was just telling me about this big terrabyte backups. I think we will go looking soon...

  2. We use a Click Free for our back up but I think I'm running out of room on it. Need to investigate one of the terrabyte thingies.

  3. I back up my Mac avery 10 days with a seagate external hd.
    It is not if the hard drive will fail, but when.

  4. You may have to wear your motorcycle helmets if the winds continue to blow.

    Backing up your computer reminds me to get that job done too.
