It’s hard to imagine that we have not reached the peak of the season after what Harvey has done, but up we go!



The NHC is going to be busy, at least to start the month...





Let's just hope we can make it through the rest of the month without any more mischief hitting land!

    That says 949. If I'm not mistaken, which I could be, unless I'm not. Just in case though, SomeJuan better go wake up LF.

    That's probably a little low, but it should get her attention. The ensembles are well below that - in the Cat 4-5 range

    Yep, it sure does. This evil B****h needs to stay away. Very scary storm. Historincally speaking, very few storms of that intensity ever hit land, but when they do the results are unbelievable. I don't want to be anywhere near a 920 storm - we shall see!

    Oops sorry. My visual acuity diminished when I passed 13.

    I either need glasses or reduce the number of times I post 5 in a row.

    Yes indeed.

    I've had numerous DOOM:CATs inhabit my household over the years. The majority of them were Siamese. I don't know what it is about them that makes them so DOOMish. It's probably the fact that they are more intelligent and coniving than your average tabby. Juan look at them and you know they are plotting and planning various sorts of mayhem on anybody who gets in their path. Not to mention their prowess at kung fu and mixed martial arts. The unique tone of their growls doesn't help matters. It only ensures that their humans know they are in for a world of hurt.

    Dr. Kid Knows.

    I'll be heading back to the hinterlands tomorrow. My current sujourn in town was not planned, but necessetated by certain legal matters and contacts with the local constabulary. I have a new battery for my drill. Now I can be productive again. Hopefully I will not run across any interlopers and misreants this time.

    The cloud currently attempting to cross the Atlantic while retaining DOOMish proportions does concern me. Unfortunately I will not be able to keep tabs on it where I am going. My gut instinct tells me that the Tamponese should be worried. They have relied on their "shield" for too long. My experiences with ECF has left me with a sour taste in my mouth which has nothing to do with the beer that I have consumed and because of that I feel that their feelings of security are like a candle in the wind.

    It's going to suck to be them.

    I may or may not be able to track the cloud in a proper manner. Therefore, I am delegating the MNS naming responsbilities to our respected collegue CONE.

    I trust that he will respect and use the responsiblitly thus bestowed in a responsible fashion and not use it for personal enrichment in a financial way, although using it to obtain free drinks or the willing attention of fair maiden FBM groupies is a different matter entirely and is perfectly acceptable.

    I bid you farewell and good luck.

    STAY SAFE/BE SAFE*

    Hey Mark, SS/BS yourself (unless you are exempt). I hope things go smoothly with your construction project.

    God Speed Dr. Mark!

    If I had a groupie, fair maiden, camp follower, or anything even closely related I'd be a happy camper and probably unable to comment here. Juan can only dream

    Given the awesome responsibility of the naming of this cloud, I will keep the name I gave it originally, IB(the Icky B***h) it seems fitting and I think this cloud may be a bad seed...



    I thank Dr Mark for his faith in my abilities, or lack thereof- happy trails and come home soon!

    Another look at 18z GFS ensembles most agree on a landfall. #Irma #FLwx

    Cone, the MNS will be safe in your capable hands (well if cones have hands). Of coarse, your fellow Bunker denizens will be happy to assist if needed.

    Thanks Hcat!

    I like IB for this Juan, just seems right. I will call on my Bunker Buddies for any future storms - if we survive.

    Now - how stupid are people?? Just boggles my mind....

    The light show here in Greenville is impressive tonight. NO naders tho so it's all good. Places in central NC had baseball-sized hail too.

    Cone that is just someone with nothing better to do, and I think some time in the pokie is justified.

    Last weekend someone on facebook had Harvey taking a big dip SE then coming north Somewheres between NOLA and Biloxi. It had my wife shook up because she was off her feet due to a procedure. I had a hard time convincing her it was Malarkey. She is doing much better now.

    I do wonder if it had a picture of a fishy shower curtain on the page.
  26. InTheCone's Avatar
    I hear ya' Kai, just keep the wifey away from facebook when the meds are onboard!

    Speaking of curtains, just keep the IB away from these...

    Unpredictability in SW digging cyclones (when it starts, how far it digs, how long, etc) should give everyone pause. Missing points. #Irma

    I have no idea to what you are referencing, but to my mind your post is rather depressing. Maybe it's just me, but I would rather meet an untimely demise than be "imprisoned", "incarcerated", or any other way you could describe being deprived of your liberties and being put in a cage.

    I always pray for the prisoners across the planet because I have empathey for them, even if they deserve their fate. It's not for me, or you, to decide what their fate is. That is why they need to be dispatched quickly to their maker so that they can be judged properly.

    If they have a leg to stand on they will be okay. Or possibly nothing like that at all, but that does not concern you or I.

    You and I just want to keep crime and insurance rates low for the sake of the economy and the gross national product.

    You and I are also tired of having car stereos ripped out of our dashes leaving gaping holes which are difficult to fill without large expenditures to the automobile manufacturer for replacement parts. Hopefully you purchased a GM product for which the parts are relatively low cost and widely available across the North American continent and easily installed.

    If not you may be out of luck. Or possibly nothing like that at all.

    Either way, the best advice is to shoot any SOB who theatens your property or loved Juans.

    Out west they have what they call The Triple S method. "Shoot, Shovel & Shut Up." It works quite well and all interested parties are advised to adhere to it.

    Of course, you didn't hear this advice from me and I suggest you consult legal counsel before giving a statement to any authorities.

    STAY SAFE/BE SAFE
