I've lived in this God Forsaken county nearly all of my 40 years and they just now finished installing the last of 7 Tornado sirens, the closest 5 miles from my house (I live in the boonies where the deer population outnumbers us Sapiens by a ratio of 50 to 1). What's the first thing they do? They set them off for a tornado that's 40 miles away! There must be only 1 button for the stupid things. Our county is 77 miles long, tip to tip. You would think that they would be able to only activate the ones that are needed.

Bleeding edge of storm just plowed into Central Kentucky about an hour ago. House is fine but expect to have water in shop. Winds are hitting 50mph and spiffy new gutters are NOT gutting or whatever the correct term is for channeling water from roof to ground is.

What's a CUBIT???


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Naw. Last time I did that, the neighbors saw me and joined in. Next thing I know we're an angry mob looking for German mad scientists.
