Yeah, we're getting some big thunder and spurts of rain. You?

Morning OT land!  Made it back home just ahead of Irene!
 
Had a great time!   Irene only messed with the Daytona weather starting Thursday afternoon.
 
I missed my little window of opportunity to go offshore fishing and after that teh seas were too rough for this landluber!!!  Still enjoyed the trip!  Aiden my grandson had a blast!  He loved the planerides...even the bumpy return flight!  He also loved the ocean and all the white sand!!! 
He wanted to bring it all home with him!  The humidity was smothering but if you stayed wet you were fine!  The surf was about 80F and even that felt cool after baking a while!
 
This trip brought back memories of growing up on the beach!

Morning G.  Post order got wacky last week but seems to be okay now!
 
How's everything at home?  I lost power Sat about midnight and got it back around 9:30am Sunday.  My sister who is still driving back still doesn't have power at her house as of 8pm last night.  I had to go over and set-up her generator to keep her food from spoiling.  Several people at work are still without power when I talked to them at work this morning.  It seems Northern Baltimore didn't loose power at all,...or at least the B&D complex didn't.  I had a long term test running that is still going strong this morning.  If Power was interrrupted the Test would have stopped.  looks like most of the eastcoast got off easier than they predicted.

Morning everyone. Hope nobody got in to much trouble for those on the east coast! We lost some shingles on the backside of our shed due to wind and some big branches came down off the big maple in the back yard. It got really nice out around 2-3 pm yesterday. Had power from abotu 9 am on yesterday but still not internet service (comcast).
 
How'd everyone else make out?

Glad youse guys are OK.  There was an awful lot of HYPE over that hurricane for the relatively minor damage.  I DID like the video of the news guy eating raw sewage for a camera stunt though... he didn't KNOW it was raw sewage, thought it was "sea foam"... COOL.

Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living
