Aug. 16th, 2009 @ 08:57 am Past Hurricanes
I was talking with one of my caregivers that lives near my tree farm last Friday and asked how long they had lived there did they have flood insurance big wide eyes I'm just asking if they remember George and puzzled eyes so I dig up an old photo of the fish and game people floating their boat down the road at stop sign level and this morning I wake to check the weather to see whether and what to do today and low and below me a tropical depression formed?

Coincidence.

Hurricane George

National Weather Service

SITUATION OVERVIEW...

TROPICAL DEPRESSION FOUR DEVELOPED EARLY THIS MORNING AND WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE NORTHWEST AROUND THE SOUTHWESTERN EDGE OF A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE ACROSS THE SOUTHERN UNITED STATES. WHEN MAKING DECISIONS... DO NOT FOCUS ON THE EXACT FORECAST TRACK. TROPICAL DEPRESSION FOUR HAS A LARGE BAND OF RAIN THAT EXTENDS EAST OF THE CENTER THAT WILL AFFECT A LARGE AREA ACROSS NORTH FLORIDA.



THEREFORE... EVEN THOUGH THE CENTER MAY TRACK WEST OF YOUR LOCATION... YOU MAY STILL EXPERIENCE TROPICAL STORM CONDITIONS... sic

I'll be darn happy to see a hurricane this year, even as problematic as they can be. The absence of them could mean a much larger and more widespread problem. How about sending that one over to Texas to break our nearly 60-day streak of 100 degree heat and no rain?

And this isn't Ripley, last survivor of The Nostromo signing off, I had been thinking of Hurricanes the last week and how you needed some rain but not like Hurricane George though I did seek out the picture earlier which triggered the conversation about flood insurance when I found out where the caregiver lived since she had said it was almost close enough for her eldest son to ride the lawnmower to my farm to cut all the new grass.

Odd isn't it.

any more Hurricane pictures LOL, but I do like to go out in them and lean into the wind...

It hit 20 some miles from me and is just sitting there.

I'll put my industrial drum fan on the back deck to try and push it West to ya.

Be Well and carry a big umbrella.

LOL! Turn that fan up on HIGH! We need about 40 feet of water in the lake. Our part is only about 50-60 feet deep. Our town is down to ONE working water inlet, and it is at the extent of its reach and is drawing silt. Meanwhile Austin still hasn't banned automated sprinklers. A foot a day for 40 days should do it...

I've never been in a hurricane except when I was really little and Carla went through San Antonio - lots of thunder, lightning, and tornadoes. We hid in a closet since basements aren't an option in country with solid bedrock six feet down. That was massively scary.

Not to Trigger Any Alarms

(Permanent Link)
But I've been having that wanna run away feeling, ten years down the road, and was wondering what type of rock and if it is a lot of red tape to hire a company to blast a basement out of the rock if you had a large amount of land so you wouldn't offend the neighbors.

I was actually thinking Arizona 40 miles from anywhere in the desert.

A lot of people have been getting this kind of feeling. I'm getting "sit tight and secure your food, water, energy, and ammo supply." Working on 'em as I can afford to.
