It's Tuesday!

And I'm under a tornado watch until tonight and that tropical storm will be raging through tonight, as well.

So, if I'm not here, that may be why.

It's been a weird one. I had it a few days ago in PR. I over prepped, but this being 2020 you can't really over prep anymore.

The eye hadn't really formed, it passed to the south of me maybe a hundred miles. It spun up and got named after it was past us.

Keep dry. Good luck.

It was supposed to hit FL too, but it turned out to a nice day.  You appear to be in the cone of massive destruction though Cryptic.  Are you in one piece?

Ahh, back to the Mideast.  I was just watching Letterman and Conan interview Ozzy Osborne.  I wonder if he every played the Mideast.  Well, not really.  Just saying.

This seems like a wet year, yohohogreengiant.  I bet there'll be plenty of hurricanes coming this way.  But at least you'll be prepared.  I spent the weekend charging batteries and getting the reserves in order.

Do you get the Science Channel in PR?  Is it showing the same shows, there is some show about Petra and camels on.

"Secrets of the Loch Ness Monster" is on at 10:00 p.m. EST.  I could tell you some things about the Loch Ness monster, at least about the song.

Sea level is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. One strong pull from the moon and your living room is a sand castle workshop.

Power is out. Cell connection was out and is now spotty and extremely slow. It has taken me nearly ten minutes to get to this comment screen.

The time is now 9:38

Our power went off on Saturday for about an hour. We had one hell of a thunderstorm come through and a transformer got hit, I think. Verizon's towers have backup generators, last I heard. So I just turned on my hotspot on my phone and surfed with my computer.

I may bite the bullet sometime this year and give up my truly unlimited plan so I can get a decent phone. My Galaxy S5 is a little long in the tooth.

Where there is a will there is a way.  (was gonna post a Jurassic Park dino pic, but you're probably on a narrow pipe.)

You have at least 20 hours of power, eh, from your battery?  If only you had that quantum-entangled internet node from Best Buy 3035.

I had a fish swimming in my garage in one Hurricane in Dayontna Beach.

Other plans have unlimited.  I have Sprint, and it's unlimited.  Verizon really pulled a bonehead thing by ending unlimited.  I thought they would have corrected their screwup by now.

Yes, but I gave them to the alligator for safekeeping,.

I like that I can drive 2 miles south of town and the sky is black if there's no moon out.

Have you seen Saturn and Jupiter by the moon this week?  (iirc)

Hopefully you'll get a chance to see it, it is very impressive.  I caught a glimpse when the clouds had been sucked out to sea for Hurricane Isaias.

I missed that super-bright comet that was in the night sky for very little time. We were having clouds every afternoon. That's the monsoons -- they build until they can't hold any more water.Sploosh!
