Should I bet that Leeds United will beat Burton Albion by 3 goals to nil today?  It's 12 to 1.

How is all the hoarding and boarding up going?

We've done all we're going to do, which really isn't that much. I may go out and hug the trees today but nothing more. Whatever happens during the storm is what happens during the storm. Our preparations are for the aftermath, ensuring access to clean water, food, electricity, and communications.  :dunno:

You don't have to leave your burrow?

Hugs for the trees from me too. And stay safe, little fuzzball.

Echoed here as well.

Stay safe.

Nah, we're not going anywhere. Tropical storm threat/prep is a way of life here, it has it's own season. Most people don't evacuate, they have parties, and the beer sells out as fast as the water. We all went out and hugged the trees together earlier, I think they're our only real concern. :grouphug:

I just realized you might be asking if it's mandatory. Where I'm at, it's not, only the floodzones directly on the coastlines in this area have mandatory evac orders because of expected storm surges. The evac for zone B was only just issued a couple hours ago. At this point, the freewats are packed and there's only two major routes out of the state, so people in those areas are better off just getting out of their zone than trying to leave the state. Evac traffic is very slow, so I think there might be a lot of people stuck on the freeways during the brunt of the storm, and they would have been better off staying home or finding a public shelter.  :dunno:

You're right.  I should have gone for 5-0.

Hoping it sounds worse than what it pans out to be. Friend of mine left at the beginning of the week to beat the traffic...first one that he ever left for, mostly because of his mother though...he just closed a deal on a house next to Mar a lago last month. It needs work, hoping it weathers the storm somewhat okay for him.

Did indeed mean that. Glad you don't have to go.

There is a Mar a lago site that should be levelled with the ground, though.
To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

Eyesore that one. Some feel that's possible. Wrath of the flying spaghetti monster and all that bullshit. :laugh:

It's weird how FB is showing "revenge plots" of nature and such. Same shit as uttered by true fundamentalists. Just a different supreme being.

Never got those punishing schemes. :P
