    I know it's officially hurricane season but this is way to early and way to hot for all this mess.

    A little further north and a lot of news outlets would get quiet over silliness.

    Early forecast models showed it heading toward us. The east coast is preparing for it but they are saying that all we will get is some moderate to heavy rains and maybe a little flooding in the low areas.

    If we could just get all the politicians in Washington to face East when they talk, all that hot air might push it out to the mid Atlantic

    It would probably be all over Europe!

    This has changed course towards us and moved way inland as compared to before. Tuesday at work is going to suck :)

    Rola643, you are the sole reason I care at all about bad weather.

    Before this, I really didn't care. I have been living through major and minor storms all my life. Sometimes they do bad damage, usually are just bad weather, and generally have been increasingly overhyped as each year passes.

    Once I started reading here though ... Now I have to think about the poor souls out there getting my power turned back on.

    You have both enriched and soured my life.

    I hope that your customers are appreciative.

    It's a good thing this was a fast moving storm. We had one massive piece of a pine fall. Pictures are very deceiving. This is over 65 ft long and more than 2 ft around in spots. You can't see but 1/2 of it.

    I don't mind saying I was more than nervous to have to get up and cut that thing down.

    Had to cut in 1/2 twice and pull with my truck to the side of that driveway to get ot out of the way. Ran out of time with everything else going on and that needed done.

    We almost never see waves up in the rivah and never seen both docks under water. Lost a free dock boards as well. Work is never done and cuts into my ride time :( not to mention will be on mandatory OT until all these outages get cleared. We have over 1800 when I left work last night to come home and do more work...

    Not recent catastrophe nor imminent disaster could keep him from his appointment with quality ale.
