I hear the too-laters bitching about no gas, water, juice, food...

Preparation is equal parts intelligence, experience and timing...some people lack all three!

I saw a quote from a resident who lived a few blocks from the beach saying "We can't afford to leave". How much does a bus ticket cost these days? Seriously!

Then let 'em die . . . & decrease the surplus population.

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but of power & of love and of calm, a well-balanced mind, discipline and self-control.

Same here, and the breeze is intermittent.

::sigh::  Now thinking of the stuff that has to be undone after it (whatever it is) is over.

Take care, all.  It looks horrible from the TV coverage.   ::hysterical::

We've gotten some gusty wind, but mostly just rain.  The power went up and down several times, it's on right now, and John and Nan are here.

I just saw that on the Gateway Pundit....Funnnnnie.
Years ago, I worked for FEMA, in operations.   We received pictures that had us all laughing.
A Hurricane had missed Corpus Christi, TX...went south into Mexico.  CNN decided to show
how bad the winds and rain were in CC anyway.  Picked a Pier and did their bcast of a dude
reporting from the pier, wind and rain blowing..    Unfortunately, a State Disaster Prep person
was down the pier filming and taking pictures.....of the dude dancing infront of a wind machine,
and water hose spray.

Situational awareness...not everybody has it.

Even without those dudes in the back this ponce looks like a complete douchenozzle!   ::laughonfloor::

At least people are caring about pets...

https://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/article218445160.html

...unlike Venezuela.  But a hurricane can be survived, socialism not so much.



Looks like rain is the big issue, and the flooding and downed trees causing loss of power.

And contrary to the lies put out by the Progs...people were warned...



...and folks from around the country and the NG are helping people and getting power back up as fast as they can.  Unlike mayors in PR that lie about Trump while a football field of bottled water rots on their watch.





Libtardian liars remind me of Ray "Schoolbus" Nagin!

Say "Howdy" to John & Nan for us.  Operations on Castello de Florida on hold till this mess is over...hopefully with no ill effect for all concerned.   ::praying::

With all that is going on in the Carolinas over the past few days I forgot to mention that we had a "freak" storm pass through our area day before yesterday. It hit very suddenly with gusts into the 40's and rain like I've seldom seen in these parts. Not good for all the trees still sporting heavy foliage.

I heard a craa-ack! and instantly knew that it was a tree coming down. Grabbed my raingear and headed out the back door to where we usually have the downed trees and branches. Nothing to speak of there and no other damage, so I headed back in out of the rain.

A few minutes later I saw the emergency lights reflecting through the front window and looked out the front to see the fire department responding to a neighbors 60 foot Maple tree split down the middle and laying across the road. I helped cut up the remains and clear the street. Neighbor tells me that he's going to take down the rest of the tree - a shame because of the great afternoon shade it always brought me in the summertime.

But hey - I'll get a cord + of firewood out of it!

Once it cures out will you burn inside or out?  Maples, pines and fruit trees will add more creosote to a chimney.

At least home and people were safe when it came down.  Can always replace a tree.

I have a free-standing woodstove with a metal flue. Straight pipe. I fashioned a paint bucket into a scrubber that I run up and down the flue every year to keep it clear. I had a stack fire years ago (in a house I lost to my 2nd x) that was interesting to resolve. Learned about chimney care then.

The thing that gets most people into trouble is being stingy when burning. They load up the box and then choke off the air so that the fire smoulders. Yes, that makes the fire last a long time without feeding it fuel, but yes, it causes soot buildup.

I prefer a smaller but hotter fire. I have to tend to it a bit more often - but then I need to get off my lazy butt anyway ;'}

Yup, sounds like you have it nailed.  It is nice to burn aromatic wood sometimes...on special occasions...mostly in our woodburning stove at the lake we use oak, and burned modestly it creates very little buildup, everytime we clean the chute it is pretty minimal.

Y'all starting to dry out there?  We got hammered this past week, lots of rain, even a rare late summer (as late as you can get and still technically be in summer!) tornado watch.  Going up to the the lake in a bit and check on things...I am prepared to see an island...
