Just some more interesting trivia (I guess I should have tested all my scripts a little more thoroughly). The request for a five day rain delay gives me a weather forecast, while the four day rain delay gives me a “Sorry I don’t know how to help with that. I’m trying to learn.” response. I’ve tried all kinds of different wording for the five day rain delay, but it appears that any phrase with the words “five”, “day”, and “rain” in it gets the weather.

For the four day rain delay, I can get some other phrases to work, but then those phrases don’t work with some of the other duration delays (I was trying to keep consistent phrasing for all the different durations to make it easy for my wife). So, for now, I still use “Set a XXX day rain delay” as the trigger for 1, 2, 3, 6, and 7 day rain delays, and I don’t have operable 4 and 5 day triggers.

On a separate matter not related to Orbit B-Hyve, does anyone know how to delete the contacts that Google Home uses? When I first set it up, it acquired all the contacts from my phone, which is not what I wanted. I have tried deleting all my google contacts (which didn’t help), and even deleted all the contacts from my phone. I also did a factory reset on the Google Home device. Despite clearing all those, Google Home still remembers all the contacts that it originally acquired. I cannot figure out any way to delete them. As Roseanne Roseanna Danna used to say on Saturday Night Live, “It just goes to show you, it’s always something!”
