Heh, we just had this pretty intense torrential rain storm here in north western Georgia. Was cleaning the gutters and roof on my rental and got soaked, which brought an end to my rental work for the day. Hopefully can get that place tip top for an early July move in . . . the remodeling and repairs have taken way too long.

Harvey from the GOES satellite(last week). :shock:
Not quite as nasty-looking as Katrina was but still...seems like you get the Hell out of the way. Just drive to Austin or San Antonio for the weekend..or week..or two weeks unless you are medical or law enforcement.

That turn that Irma seems to be taking is troubling me.

(The cone map that I made several posts seems to be updating itself but if you cannot see it here is the latest link to it):

Tropical storm Lidia is annoying. 100 F yesterday and 75% humidity

It's already 90 at 9:30 AM. I'm going to the beach again. Went to beach yesterday and this hilarious Armenian family set up shop. The men were like little apes with total back pelts. Despite the pelts they slather on sunscreen which clumps in great globs to their fur.

After about an hour the patriarch decides to break out his thermos which is obviously alcoholic because he looks guiltier than homemade sin. His daughter nags him whispering.."No daddy, it's illegal." He takes literally ONE sip and the Beach Patrol cops come up.."Sir, is that alcoholic because it smells like alcohol"? :lol: :lol:

Meanwhile, I am 3 feet away drinking vodka and watermelon shooters. I dump out my drink away from the cop and refill it with Diet Coke. He has to dump out his whole thermos. Mine goes under the backpack. Funnier than Hell. His wife comes over and asks how I got away with it and I show her the Diet Coke trick. :lol:
