    It's amazing just how much smoke a 1000 acre brush fire can produce - I live about 5 miles south of the Weber Canyon fire and I can't see the mountains up there. The mountain due east of me is also covered in haze

    I didn't see your post, if you are in the Eug I hope you aren't watching the game in a hotel. My door is always open.

    I just realized this post was from a week ago, I still hope you didn't watch from a hotel.

    We did, but that was a game that was best watched either in solitude, in a dimly lit bar with no other patrons, or not at all. We thought of trying to connect with you and the rest of the HFN mob (no doubt Hawk still cherishes the memory of his first dining experience in the US of A), but given our limited amount of time on the way north, we decided to defer the reunion to a later date.

    It was category 5 when it had 185 MPH winds. I think it is down to 150 MPH winds.

    It is a poor comparison. Why have the current Cat and not current winds speeds. It also hasn't spent any time over Florida yet.

    Maybe next time they will stay at the Marriott...

    Tourists left 'stranded' in Hurricane Irma after Marriott boat refuses to rescue anyone but guests

    Terrified tourists stuck on the Caribbean Island of St Thomas during Hurricane Irma were left 'stranded' when a Marriott rescue ship refused to allow non-hotel guests to board.


    As 185mph winds unleashed devastation across the tropical islands, killing a total of 22 so far, holiday makers were astonished when staff onboard the ship said they could not accommodate those who had not booked a Marriott stay.


    Pier lights were then turned off in an attempt to disperse the stranded group.


    As darkness fell and killer winds from departing Irma and approaching Hurricane Jose picked up, tourists turned to social media to reveal their disgust at being left on the dock as the rescue boat departed with a reported 200 free seats.

    My sister spent 2 weeks "hoidays" in Vietnam, she has just come back, there was a very strong Typhoon Damrey last weekend, it was terrifying, 27 people dead, destruction, no electricity, water, tourists were asked to stay at hotels. Scary

    Are my fellow east-coasters ready for the Bomb Cyclone? We will be largely spared in NYC. Looking at 3 to 5 inches, but the 40 to 50 mph wind gusts with highs in the 20s may keep me indoors. Definitely not walking my daughter to school.

    Supposedly 6" forecast for Charleston and Savannah?

    Rain in January in Rexburg is very, very rare. I don’t mind it because I don’t have to shovel it away but it hasn’t been good for my skiing.

    I'm in Chicago for 2 days. Thursday it was almost 60 and rainy. Friday is supposed to be low 20s and windy. What a weird place.

    Snow is forecast for tomorrow afternoon, which is really, really bizarre. When we get snow, it's usually in the dead of night or early morning when temps are the coldest. HOwever, the temps shoudl get to 32 degrees by mornign and then continue to go down until they hit 21-22 degrees. Freezing rain is forecast with the change for snow.

    Needless to say, school is cancelled as are all church activities. I'll be working from home tomorrow and Wednesday since my commute sucks when bridges are frozen. However, my biggest concern is keeping the pool pipes from freezing. Maybe I'll turn on the pool heater and let the kids play in the heated spa for a bit.

    I went hiking today in a T-shirt! Crazy.

    I had the attic fan on and the windows open on Saturday. Today, my birdbath froze solid. It's supposed to snow on Wednesday.

    32 degress and freezing rain on my run this morning. Oddly, I enjoyed it much more than running in 80 degree humidity. Snow is still forecast for this afternoon. It would be awesome if it actually happened.
