As the last full month of winter rolls in the question remains – lots more frosty days ahead? Or, will severe season get an early start? The early bets look to be on more visits from the old man of the north.



After everyone thaws out a bit we’ll be on to severe season and the CPC thinks there will be some moistcha’ available…..

Time to watch the radar for frozen white invaders or AOD’s – pick your poison



Here in the bunker, we know where to go for any extreme weather event - To the nearest Bunker Bar




**** IMPORTANT NOTE **** The Bunker hosting runs out at the end of this month and provisions will need to be made if we are to extend our run of insanity.

    Sounds like a good day to be sure you have plenty of windshield washing fluid.

    We went to the 24 hours of Daytona this year. Spent all 4 days in the infield. It was awesome. I met a lot of famous drivers.
    It was really cool standing shoulder to shoulder with Roger Penske while he was conversing with Juan Montoya. Also met and
    spoke with Scott Dixon (The man has nerves of steel). Unfortunately my team corvette guys did not win the GT class battle.
    They came in 3rd and 4th. The Ford GTs came in 1st & 2nd (Scott Dixon won in the #67 Ford GT). The Penske prototypes were
    the overall leaders when I took a nap about 12:30 during the night. When I woke up I went to the garage and they were their
    with mechanical difficulties. They lost a bunch of laps and could never make it up. Near the end Montoya was turning the
    fastest laps of the race, but it was to no avail. The Cadillac prototypes were just to strong and realiable and finished 1st and 2nd
    overall.

    I would do it again. It was really cool.

    On a side note, I saw the Continental Sports Car Series race on Friday. A couple of young Nascar Truck drivers were drving
    Mustangs and did really well (Austin Cindric, Cole Custer, etc...). Cindric had the lead with about 30 minutes to go but his
    tranny broke. Custer finished on the podium in 3rd. Not bad for a bunch of NASCAR guys competing with some of the best
    road racing talent out there. I was in victory lane after that race and got to meet the drivers. Was really cool.

    I really enjoy those Continental Cup races, there's something great about seeing a bunch of Mini's racing in the ST class, but there were very few entries in that class at Daytona. I hope there are more in future races.

    Sounds fun but a little too long for me. I would love camping in the infield and meeting everyone.

    Speaking of Mustangs, my son totalled his last night. He is fine, the car is still in surgery, waiting to see if the frame is bent. It goes fast..............I forget how many HP it has now, but too fast. Barely street-legal.

    So it was an interesting day so far. Was talking to a friend in Pennsylvania about dog club business and then cell phone went off for tornado warning. I told her I'd have to go and call her back. It was over an hour before I could call her back, she was freaking. They don't tend to have them there. My son was driving home from the local VA, so I stayed on the phone with him until he made it home. He made it home just in time as not long after they closed all the main roads and most of the smaller ones as they were under water, some places over two feet of water. A month ago we were in a moderate drought, bordering on extreme. Now we're saturated and there no where for the water to go. We had three and a half inches of rain in a couple of hours, non-stop downpour, thunder and lightening. We're currently under flood warnings and a tornado watch.

    The office toilets overflowed again, so I ran into town during a break in the rain and we (two of us from the Board) met with the guy from town in charge of city sewer. There is a block in their system and baring rain, he'll be digging it up tomorrow to do the repair. He doesn't think we'll have further problems after that. But the city isn't responsible for what happened to us. Mind you it cost us ten thousand for servpro to come in in hasmet suits to tear out all the carpeting and two feet up the walls due to the hazardous material spilled all over and soaked up the walls. Our insurance paid them out of our insurance and so we're supposed to get a check for five thousand now to do all the repairs, $13,800.00 worth of rebuilding. The office is down and has been since early January. We're a non profit. We don't have money coming in. We are trying to do fundraisers to make the money to repair the office, and also pay all the utility bills. I'm venting. I feel better, thank you.

    Good Morning Bunkerites!

    Sounds like the government is up to it's usual tricks, spending other peoples' money with no accountability. I hope you guys can get back on your feet and paws Aislinn, that's a rough go with a double toilet blow out.

    Speaking of water, it looks to still be showery there this morning.....'

    Ais' BreakFastCast - still some in the forecats........

    Today: Mostly cloudy with a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 70s. South winds 5 to 15 mph.

    Tonight: Mostly cloudy with a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Lows in the mid 60s. South winds 5 to 10 mph

    Good morning, afternoon and evening, everyjuan! It's 58 degrees and cloudy. We added another two inches of rain yesterday afternoon to the three and a half we had in the morning. Several roads are still under water but the main ones have drained and are open.

    Breakfast’s on the sideboard: baked salmon eggs benedict, sausage and egg waffle tacos, bacon wrapped sausage stuffed pork tenderloin, pineapple chunks, spiced home fries, asparagus, chicken and cheese breakfast burritos, cornbread breakfast pizza, chicken and waffles casserole, ham, broccoli and cheese braid, bacon, egg and cheese strata, tea or coffee. Enjoy!

    Morning Aislinn & LF!

    Me too, especially when I KNOW that it's the real deal. I am a regular supporter of the forgotten soldiers outreach here because they need supplies to send and I see them being sent out. I have gotten to know the people there quite well and I can trust them - that makes a world of difference.

    Breakfast!

    I'll have sausage and egg waffle tacos, bacon wrapped sausage stuffed pork tenderloin, spiced home fries, asparagus, chicken and cheese breakfast burritos, cornbread breakfast pizza, chicken and waffles casserole, ham, broccoli and cheese braid, bacon, egg and cheese strata and coffee - TYVM and I hope it starts to dry out some before the next round of rain comes through.

    I'm with ya there LF. Direct donations to smaller groups carry far more weight than within larger organizations. We've altered our charitable giving away from the larger groups.

    ...any yes, we hit Ais's tip jar last year. She helps Veterans, directly, hands-on. I can't think of many higher causes.


    OH and Ais... Check with a Lawyer. The city may say it is not liable for the damages their faulty sewer system caused, but your insurance company (and or a team of their lawyers) should try to recover the loss from the city.

    I was thinking the same thing, Bart. Of course the city will absolve their own sins, but juance someone holds their feet to the fire, they may have to take responsibility.

    It's too dang hot!

    Hi all, and thank you. Today it was proven the old clay pipe was only one quarter open and they had to completely replace it. So we now have a twelve foot deep by ten foot wide trench through our training field. They will cover it back up, but we will have to seed it and get it back to a field or yard again. They tore up part of the sidewalk and parking lot. It will have to be looked at to see if they are marked as a city or private sidewalk. If they are private then we will have to pay to replace them. I don't want to know that will cost! Especially as I'm pretty sure it will come back from the city as private. The good news is they finally found where our sewage line is. But we will have to get permits and have a certified plumber come out and actually find the line and put new back flows on them. Sigh At least it was a nice day to sit outside all day and watch them working, going in to flush toilets as they requested. Yep! Today I was an official toilet flusher.
  26. InTheCone's Avatar
    Whew, it just seems to go on and on for you guys. Hard to tell who the flusher and who's the flushee.

    I know, right? Your group probably knows about this one grant I found, it donates 25 pallets at a time for what it sounds like your group does. Bart, like I told you then, your donation was a blessing we needed badly. Thank you again so much!

    They do a lot of individual boxes for soldiers that have no one sending them anything from here, and then they send them a care box every month that they are deployed. They do some squad boxes, but depends on the need and the commanders(from what I understand). So I don't know about the pallets, but they sure get a TON of Girl Scout cookies!

    Hey all, it is hot and looks like some cold comin too. I guess spring is around the corner again. Then the season!

    Oh well, it is what it is.

    Replaced the T-boned totaled car yesterday. It is quite amazing what you can find out there if you take your time and do the dilligence in the used car world. It was car salesman week on my end ,,, buttt its over now
