Believe it Or Not

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.
