Same here - oh wait, we're neighbors!

Staring out the window eating breakfast now, looking at the empty spot my 7.3 used to occupy. If you guys get tired of yours maybe gimme a chance to give them a good home. I'm missing it big time but everyone wants an arm and a leg for them.

I remember Andrew... it wasn't the normal hurricane winds that made things go all sideways. There was a dynamic in the storm that we don't usually see: Once it made landfall, little "tornadits" scattered about - making the landscape look like a giant tine rake came through. Normal destruction here, total nothing left there, normal destruction here, total nothing left there.

When I hear "strongest Atlantic hurricane on record", and see a projected path like that... I'm thinking this is Mother Nature unleashing weapons of mass destruction on us. For those in the path... save what you can and flee.

I lived in FL for a brief stint that happened to be during Francis and Jeane. I evacuated 3 days before they were talking about it. That's they way to do it, IMO. I just treated it like a quick getaway. I avoided the fuel and traffic problems by being proactive. Waiting until the order comes is just asking for trouble. Some people were not able to get out in time due to fuel shortages and traffic flow.

You are absolutely correct Rich. Andrew was devastating and this one is twice that size. I have a bad feeling about this one.

Well we got some HARD rain here yesterday evening, like I have never seen in the ~25 years that I have lived here. I don't know how wide spread it was, most likely just in the local "cells". Didn't have the rain gauge out, but just guessing there was over an inch in two cloud bursts. Almost couldn't see the highway ~150 yards away.

Here in Washington state (pretty much the whole freaking state), it's smoke and fire. This summer... I have had more smoke covered skies and cool temps with the sun blocked than I have seen clear air. I've even seen days where we can't see across the river because of smoke from regional forest fires. When the smoke is so dense you can't see the sun and you have a brownish overcast with ash falling on everything, it takes a lot of the fun out of living in a scenic area.

I imagine so! A friend of mine is in Col Springs and they say they can see the haze on the mountains from all the smoke and it smells like a campfire.

The jetstream's keeping anything from getting this far east, thank goodness. I'm going to spend the day lowering the water level on our local lake by pulling out alot these bothersome crappie.

Have a good weekend guys!

Hit the snooze twice today, rather stay in bed like a normal person. Oh well, everyone is still pooping, and someone has to make the toilet paper. Off to make some cheek sheets.

So you work at the GP mill? What's your job?

I've been in Pulp & Paper for over 30 years, 20 years working directly in the plants and the last 11 in a consulting role as a Staff Engineer. I know a couple of really good guys in the Atlanta GP corporate complex (Barry Covington and Keith Medlock).

I'm also in Colorado Springs, the haze was so bad you can't see anything beyond a mile or two. I was evacuated for the Waldo Fire, nothing like smelling wildfire after experiencing that first hand. It's finally starting to clear up a bit.

I'm just up the road from you in Elizabeth. Haze has been hit or miss. I just moved to this place, here's my first sunset.




I had to help friends evac during the Black Forrest fire. Nothing like trying to gather horses in a hurrry that don't want to be gathered.

Irma has left north GA. Trees down all over the place, power out to a lot of homes.

Nothing like breaking out the new Stihl chainsaw that I bought 2 weeks ago at 6 AM...

I hope everyone stayed safe and the only thing lost is replaceable items and a bit of time.

We didn't get near the rainfall or winds predicted here in Birmingham. It was just a steady and slow rainy drizzle all day yesterday and a little harder rain into the night. The wind was a little gusty, but no hard winds at all. I didn't even seen much in the way of tree limb debris on the roads coming in to work this morning.
