Still hot, damp and rainy down here, too.

We get a day here and there where it doesn't rain, but it just depends on where you are and if the rain clouds happen to drift over my area of the state or not.

But it's almost guaranteed to rain somewhere in Florida everyday during the summer.

And of course, the peak of the hurricane season is upon us again, so things could get interesting very soon.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

ConfusedHow come nothing ever comes along and bites YOU in the face, especially since you live in 'The Land Where Anything That Lives, Crawls, Bites, Eats, Dies, and Rots'?
 
I think I got some more 'Heat Puss for Us'...probably a darned yellow fly. And I take B Complex as that seems to keep most insects away from me...so I guess I'll race back up to The Den for a week and chill...

I know I have recounted before here on CIH, two TRUE stories in that regard.

I won't go into the long, drawn out details of them, but I will tell you the shortened version of each.

Back around 1986 I was driving a hotel van from the hotel I was working at to the airport one evening, to pick up some corporate office VIPs. As I was rounding a sharp, two-lane curve WITH ONCOMING TRAFFIC, window down enjoying the cool, evening air, a wasp or yellow-jacket flew in the window, landed DEAD ON THE TIP OF MY NOSE and STUNG THE PISS OUT OF ME!!!

For NO DAMNED REASON!!!

Several years later, I was heading to a friend's house, driving down a neighborhood residential street, about the same time of day - early evening - in my own car, window down enjoying the cool evening air, doing about 20 mph, when out of nowhere, a large, hard-shelled flying beetle going in the opposite direction, came ZOOMING in the window and smacked me DEAD SQUARE IN THE NAKED, WIDE OPEN LEFT EYEBALL!!!

I still remember the wet, squishy "smack!!!" when it hit.

Hurt like hell!!! My eye was red until the next day!!!!

So, don't cry to me about your little skeeter bite my friend!!!!

The water is 90 degrees Big smile which is nice to work in while chipping grout.  But then I get an inch or so of rain per day (which I'll have to start draining now that I sealed up some of the cracks.)  Couldn't do these repairs in the fall or winter 'cause the water would be too damn cold...

ConfusedI presume safety glasses are in order, or do you think we should make a PSA about 'Unsafe Wading & Working'? We could make it a Southern Canada PSA so it can be really shocking.
You could be working your pool filled with brackish, unclear water...there you are a'chippin' away when a piece of hardened grout with some black mold on it flies up and lacerates your face before settling in the middle of your left eye. Between the blood in the water and your screaming, you come to realize a new freeloader has taken up residence in your pool. Now, as you are twirling with 'The Gabbyator' you take your chisel and shove it between his eyes, killing her instantly, but you're now short another arm...Wink

On Monday I mowed the ENTIRE lawn. It was good to get it done! Today this morning it was surprisingly quite chilly.

I am envious of your chilly weather, as it is still stinkin hot down here.

It was inquired of me by someone who shall remain nameless, if I thought you survived climbing a summit.

I did not know you had climbed one.

I received something in the mail today from 'Focus on Energy'. It's a survey asking questions about our home and our energy using habits.

I filled it out but i thought some of the questions were getting kinda stupid toward the end.

They say "fill it out, mail it in" and we will get their energy evaluation.  Like I don't already know what they will say.

Replace that 23 year old furnace...I heat with wood.
Replace that 23 year old a/c unit.
Replace all of your incandescent bulbs. I'm not sold on these new Compact fluorescent bulbs.  Let alone these freaking LED's.  Is it OK if I just let these old bulbs just burn out?  Jeez Louise!!

Of course it's OK to keep using your existing bulbs until they burn out!  The energy savings we are supposed to be getting from these new ones is, at least where I live, obliterated with the energy company always raising their rates.  Ever since light bulbs have been manufactured in other countries instead of right here in the good ole US of A, the bulbs are crap and don't last as long as they say they will.

If our old buddy Insanity 213 was still around, I would ask him if he is ready for Harvey.

Holy Sh*t! 25 to 35 inches of rain??

I never know what to think with these weather reports.
 
"Harvey" downgraded pretty quickly, and is now a tropical storm.  Forecasts are saying 70mph winds (not gusts), but I'm looking at the conditions in the various Texas towns affected, and I'm seeing winds of 12-40mph.  Most of the winds are in the 20-25mph range.  That's more just annoying than it is deadly.
 
So, are the reporters just showing us the absolute worst (some downed trees and destroyed homes), or is this destruction as big as they seem to want us to believe?  Do they just want to keep us watching, so they make it look worse than it is at this point?

I think the big threat in Texas is from flooding.

The media always says things are far worse than they really are. I pray for those involved, and I hope everybody there helps each other in their neighborhood out cleaning things up and assisting in any way they can, as people in my neighborhood after hurricane Matthew struck last year.

Yeah, that's why I said "at this point".  Floods are bad, but not as immediately exciting as houses flying through the air and the possibility of reporters being tossed into the sea live on TV.

Oh, I dunno...

A good flood can send houses sailing away like a white water raft.



And sweep people away, too!!!



Loads of fun!!!
