Beautiful Weather To Work In

The other day we were all privelidged enough to get our first “Snow”.  Well, in my area we got a lot of rain all day, and finally at night the hail came.  Our cars got a light dusting, and that is about it.

That was told to you so you could understand this…

I started doing a job at my neighbors home.  Because of her work schedule I could only start installing her DirecTV dish.  She had an antenna, and then she had cable.  The costs of cable got out of hand.  Antennas require some maintenance if they aren’t installed correct.  Last thing I said to her before she left for work was that I was concerned that we would get some bad weather on the following day.  The next morning it was ugly.

I can assemble DirecTV dishes rather quickly.  Installing them isn’t that long of a process either.  Trying to pin a DirecTV antenna isn’t the easiest thing to do in the middle of hail, rain, and snow.  I finally got the dish perfect.  I had to go and change because I didn’t want to get her house all watered up.  This was all to help my neighbor save some money.

I wish there was a way to schedule in weather based on the type of work.

I Need Some Sort Of Signal

I have had problems for many years in my house.  No matter what I do my cell phone signal is ridiculous in my basement.  I have contemplated getting one of those cell booster antennas for my house but I don’t want to throw money away if it doesn’t end up working.

I have seen many commercials for a gadget that you insert in by your battery that is supposed to help but it is on a infomercial so I am very hesitant.

Do you have any suggestions for solving this problem?
