Goddamned Sattelite Dish
Had some thunderstorms move in this evening, and some big wind gusts apparently twisted the dish. And I can't get a signal. I could fix it in 5 minutes, but there's still some lightning in the area.

Ain't no way I'm climbing up on a ladder for that.

5. I built mine to retract...
Lightning kept blowing out the horn.

Keeps it lined up too.

Can't watch it when it's down... So, I learned to read.
