Oct./Nov. – Peace & Quiet or Doom and Gloom?

Down we go and we can’t get to the bottom soon enough! It’s been a long season for many people and it’s going to take a long time for them to recover.

Oct. can be busy in the Caribbean with the storms heading to the north and the early indications are that we will see some activity in that area early to mid month.



All we can do is keep watching and be as ready as we can….





Time to study “The Chart” and hope that we can get Homer to the bottom without any more DOOM days.

    Now that my rant is over I want to say I am glad to hear everyone made out OK.

    And Thank You Tulsa for your food for thought. When you get some feedback, let's get it in "bullet" form. My eyes aren't what they used to be.

    I also think that whatever offer we send to Dewey should include a big bag of Cheetos. He'd have to smile...............

    When you hit send on an email if there is anything wrong and it doesn't go it deletes the entire text. So I had done a better and probably more concise job a couple of nights ago but should have saved it before hitting send. I had to go to the old draft I had started and redo it from there so I just wanted to get something outtoday. With respect to offending Dewey I don't think so at all. Of course we'd rather he was back but based on past conversations I don't believe he would be offended at us wanting to take it over. I'm not in his head, but I had a strong vibe he doesn't have time for it now along with maybe other reasons, but he has been very considerate to keep it going for us. I think his time requirements in turning it over would be the biggest factor if we can reach him. That's why I suggest having a plan when we go to him and possibly offer some type of consideration to make it worth his while to do what he needs to do from his end. And who knows, maybe a proposal would even renew his interest if he's at a different place now. If people are concerned he'd be offended, it's the last thing anyone wants. I just don't think so.

    Good job Tulsa. I appreciate your efforts in getting the process started. If Dewey is willing, perhaps the Bunker essentials can be transferred electronically with little effort.

    I thought the forecast was broad but okay. The winds were in a tiny pocket but they DID exist rather close to the end.

    Thanks T, for your comm and effort, nothing happens without the Dew. We really need to focus on that, or nada.

    Remember there is much more to this overall site than a blog. I have a wordpress blog that is not used. You all could too if that is the goal.

    Maintaining more than that, is a bit more than you may think.

    I consider the Dew gone at this point. My suggestion is 'next' when the rent runs out. 4 more years?

    Just for the record, my attempts from long ago in reverse order (2011)

    From Dewey.

    Good morning ,

    I will send you an email in the next few days when I sort some things out. The root issue for me is I don't know if it's worth investing in, and even if I determined it was worth it what would the investment be for? New technology? Mobile apps? New members?

    Frankly I'm just not sure I have the time or the desire.

    I'm working on some ideas.

    Dewey

    I have been looking to make some investments in a weather blog for a while. I am interested in how this works and what it would take to do it or help improve it.

    In other words, I see this type of thing happening more often in our future. Making it different and better sometimes needs different perspectives and investors.

    I see opportunity in this moving forward.


    My real email address if you want to expand the discussion.

    If not, I am good with that too.

    Be well !

    I don't think we know for sure but that's how I read his comments in his last blog. Since it renewed and we didn't hear from Dew I believe it's on auto renew.

    Having a wordpress account provides protection that is automatic and not a maintenance item. Check it out.

    I'll look.i don't know anything about it at this point but I'll check it out.

    Another thought would be to contact him by mail and offer to pay a consulting fee for the time involved for him to "dust off the keys and turn them over" as he phrased it last time I talked to him. Basically, he could just turn over authority to approve new members to ITC. For as long as the site keeps working. Maybe a reasonable fee would offer enough incentive to find time to mess with it. I wouldn't think that would take too much time. But I know he doesn't want to mess with interpersonal strife, behavioral issues (of new members especially), and that sort of thing. He would have to trust us to do a good job since his reputation would still be at stake.

    I have communications from D from 2014 -2016 I could share the gist of if it helps clarify where he's at. It's only been a couple of years since he was fired up about making something more of the site and growing it by several means. Maybe by lucky accident we hit him at a good time showing our interest and he decides to take another look. It could happen. Or possibly nothing like that at all

    I have to admit at first glance the Wordpress business plan seems to provide the features we'd need most. We wouldn't have same domain name and I have no idea how hard it is to set up, use, post images, etc. but it's worth checking out. I think other people have experience with it and may have comments as well.

    Good night all!

    Thank you T for trying. As has been said, the key is making contact with Dewey, after that it's all downhill, I mean uphill, from there.
    I don't know what's involved with daily maintenance of a weather blog. I do know a bit about what's involved with maintenance of a small corporate site, and a bit about marketing.
    I always thought this site could be viable as a business. No sense in going into details too much until we get the Big Red One to contact us.

    Good Morning Bunkerites!

    I just want to remind everyJuan to be careful what you wish for - opening up this site(or a different Juan) is a potential Pandora's Box. With a lot of new folks comes a lot of different issues with political/religious/AGW etc. issues. Not something I'm interested in dealing with, and definitely something to keep in mind.

    No real DOOM on the horizon, the models are still focusing on some small area to cruise in toward Fl. from the east......

    I do not know who to thank first...... 3K for reviving the site or whomever has the Midas touch that actually got the background email validation/password reset to function!

    Felt like I was some bit character in the Tron movie for a long long time.....
