I am ok. Lots of water fell from the sky causing massive amounts of flooding and road closures and sink holes. The lot will need to be pushed off again. This will set me back. Do not want.

We had a flood watch for a couple days but it didn't really rain much here in Hotlanta.

I hear Pensacola's rough. And this week is the New Orleans Jazz Festival, so I wonder how they are doing over there. My co-worker goes every year but she is skipping this year because last year there was too much rain and mud in the streets, I can't imagine this year :freak:

Glad my other fellow Southerners are ok! :)

Thank Plunky, but the fire is a pretty long way away. If it got this far, that would be Serious Newz. :)

The past few days have been HOT and DRYYYY. With the drought the way it is, I'm afraid that California's going to have a rather rough summer. :cry:

Aside from burning away, some fear that vegetation is starting to die off, leaving the hillsides baren with nothing to hold the soil together. If the current predictions hold true for a strong El Nino event, and if that event does what it usually does and brings huge amounts of rain, we're looking at mudslides galore.

I think the prediction is actually a small la nina this year. I remember this because they aren't predicting any hurricanes this year. I'll have to check though, I could be wrong.

up until like a week or 2 ago it continued to snow here durr

:typical_canadians: :wave:

it has mostly melted now tho

I went to the forks last Sunday (where 2 rivers meet) the flooding appeared to be relatively minor in the prairies.

last year in alberta (a couple provinces over, where I mostly work) the flooding was much much worse and delayed a lot of oil drilling projects

I'm good! I took three days of the week before last to go on a field trip with my son and his school.

They ran the kids too hard.. from 6am until 9pm with hardly any break. We bailed on Friday and I had my mom come get us at a campground nearby our house. We had done the Friday activity anyway and they wouldn't be back at the school until 7:30 that evening which meant we wouldn't have been home until 9-10. My son's birthday party was the next day and I had had a cold the whole week. I made a preemptive Drs appointment on sat morning and went in and came out with antibiotics for a sinus infection. It hit me real hard on Monday. I spent Mon-Wend. with a high fever and sleeping on and off all day. I took the rest of the week off and today, I'm back at work. But i"m all kind of coughing and clearing out the gunk still. It's gonna be a while until I feel better.

Also the week before last, the girl we look after, her mom slapped her around real good and she came over crying and upset. Then that Friday, my son's principal got arrested for molesting a child (not at the school). But between that and all the family stuff going on and being sick and all.. I really need a break :facepalm:

We did get a lot of rain.. It wasn't to bad down by me. I think there's something about the area I live in and the way the water moves in the bay that just north of us and east get most of the bad weather. But there was a lightning strike outside in the field behind my house. It went kind of sideways and crackled a lot. There was no huge boom like I would have expected to have heard...

Fingers crossed things look up for you Metro.

Sounds like you've had a whole heap of crap to deal with. :(

Serious lightning is serious. A couple of times I've been way too close to it. Do not want. When it's very close, it does seem quieter than you'd expect it to be. Maybe it's like long throw speakers, the sound doesn't 'develop' until you're farther away.

Once I was training a doggeh with a chain collar & leash. (And yes it's humane as long as you don't yank it in anger. A very small tension is plenty to get their attention & they soon learn they mustn't try to pull away. I no longer do it because I don't care if they heel or sit or any of that crap. People should leave their dogs home, I think.)

Anyway, a big lightning bolt zapped a tree a couple hundred feet from my backyard, & teh chain shocked the piss out of me and doggeh!

If I were you I'd be in total shock...



































































And I'd be pissed too.

The negative current flow of this thread is lacking continuity. Who is the emitter of this base collection? This series of flip flops is unparalleled! I charge you all to regulate yourselves, rectify this drift, resist this phase and conduct yourselves with proper grounding in a positive manner. Watt?

Man, the sparks are flying in this thread. We all need to just calm down, relax, breathe, and meditate by chanting "ohm..."
