The other day I was cleaning up my yard from Tropical Storm Fay which dumped about 10-12 inces of rain on us. I was working cutting up fallen trees and limbs with my chainsaw for about 2 hours when I thought maybe I should check my sugar level. Usually I would hear my cgms alarm and feel it vibrate, but with all the noise and vibration of the saw, I didn't. So when I looked.....it read LOW (40 or less). I came in and used my meter, and I was 38...nice!...I felt fine and like I could just keep going....
