May gray was in full effect today in LA. For those who don’t know about May gray and are more familiar with June gloom, it’s June gloom but earlier. But the wind made for a situation that was not conducive to sanding. In an additional projects, my PS4 kept shutting off with no warning, and it was really frustrating. I decided to try to fix it myself. I got partway through, but then I found that I needed security torx, and I just have regular torx. That project will be a blog post of its own later.
Yesterday I missed a couple of the pangrams, even though I had gotten four. DOMINANT and NONDOMINANT were the ones I missed.
I also missed ADDITION, AMMONIA, AMINO, DIAMOND, DOODAD, NOMINATION, OTTOMAN, and TATTOO.
