Dennis the Menace(Emily on deck)


A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

Here comes Emily, expected to follow the same path as Dennis, perhaps a bit more east, and hit Sunday or Monday.

Here is a better website to both track where the storm has been and where it is expected to go.

Looks like it will be south of Cuba on the 17th.

If Emily gets to the end of Cuba and hangs a right, as many are wont to do, P-cola gets it again.

"Well the first thing you know Tafnut's a millionaire,

Said "Californy is the place you ought to be"
So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly.

Hills, that is. Swimmin' pools, movie stars."

Sister and mom should be back in Pensacola today. With the dogs. They let the cats ride it out. I suspect that they are getting nostalgic for earthquakes. And here comes the big E. I am pretty sure they are going to stay in the panhandle, but damn. On the up side, our SE US daughter will be leaving Atlanta next year. She gave it 2 years. Houses affordable, but Atlanta is surrounded by waaaaay too much Georgia.

I'm here for the duration - which is either the 20.7 years indictated by the on-line test or the 2.3 years as determined by Hurricane Percival of 2007.

Pat, did your in-laws get more damage/loss? Last night Rebecca said the house "was still standing" which is pretty non commital. She is far enough off the beach that she got out with "tree pruning, water the lawn and such with Ivan.

>>Pat, did your in-laws get more damage/loss?<<

Got the call this morning. Two of three FEMA trailers are unliveable. The third has blown out windows. No power and the prospects for getting it are not good this week. My wife put her foot down and told her parents they're staying here for at least a month. First time I ever heard her dad say, 'yes, ma'am' to her. Crusty Old South type. The Vegas line has them moving to Jax by end of year.

Not as the team he was on. I still see the distinctive shirt around - but the club as a distance 'enclave' does not exist any more.

I like them just fine (despite cataclysmically different upbringings), but you may notice a slight INCREASE in my on-line time (MJD just fainted), as I bunker down for the duration. My computer is in a sacrosanct home office, off the master bedroom. :-)
