Afternoon PWA, thankfully our storm last week was worse with rain and wind than this one was. Having said that, lots of streets flooded but they're miles from me. More flooding to come later tonight when tide comes in so hopefully people in other areas around here won't have it too bad in the evening. Beautiful day here today.

Glad everyone here made out so well with this storm.

Edit: our power was out for about 2 1/2 hours, no biggie

lotta damage around here...Trees down everywhere,
bridges washing out, couple of dams on the verge of going, and several towns are being evacuated with rescues being done by helicopter, plucking people off of rooftops.

We ain't used ta this kinda precipitation - if'n it was white and fluffy it'd be no big deal!

Mom went home.
She is all worried about two trees on her property. They are why she came to me. Worried they will fall.

The downed branches all came from a different tree.
Some of those branches would crumble if you twisted them.
There are 3 big broken branches caught up on the tree that haven't fallen yet

Her neighbor and I were telling her THAT tree NEEDS to come down. It is dangerous.

Right over her head. No dead leaves on that tree.

I gave her a branch and showed her how rotted it was . Told her to put one in the garage, because the town gives you trouble if you take down a healthy tree.

Nope.

Darn skylights. I love the light mine bring in but don't think I'd ever put them in another home again. Just a PIA sometimes.

Wishing you the best that you'll need as little repair as possible.

Hi AZ.

Have to get some things done.

I'll be back later.

Still might lose power. The wind is coming from the other direction now. Lights have flickered.


So, if I'm gone, that is what happened.




Oh, another kill the old folks ...

Mom's idea of storm food....
cold cuts
extra milk
yogurt
boston market chicken meal
A bunch of vegetables (the only thing that didn't need the fridge)

I told her, but you are suppose to have stuff that doesn't need the refrigerator .

So, the person the furthest from the water got the worst of the storm.

Sorry about the damage Lynnie. I wasn't really worried about you! Seems strange that you had so much more damage than the coastal wooters.

We picked blueberries and pears today. We put the blueberries in the freezer for muffins. I want to make pear preserves. Anybody got a good recipe?

yeah, go figure. talked to my lil bro in NC and all they had was wind. It is really bad in upstate NY and Vermont. Flooding will only worsen thru the next 24 hours as the rivers haven't crested yet. The NYS Thruway is closed due to flooding. Wind is picking up again here as the storm does some backlash thingie the local forecasters told us was gonna happen.

as for your preserves....no good recipes for that. Ever try pear butter?

I think part of it is that the ground was already pretty saturated before this started, and the additional 8-11 inches of rain (or more in some places) in such a short time is just overwhelming the area.

Found one that is pears, lemon, sugar and water.

I've just looked at J3's station's site and the outer banks of NC really took a beating.

I know...the thought of Pickles and Trixie in their cages not being able to get out is horrifying. Three other cats have free run of the place so could manage to get up high.

Don't know. Assume if he was dead, someone would have called.
News did say that area had a big tide.



Rusty just had a loud fight with a dog I don't know at the park.
First time all summer nobody was there but dogs. All of them off leash.
Suddenly I hear a big fight. Rusty and some small white dog.

I run over, grab his legs and flip him on his back. Threw a few smacks in. Clipped the leash on and dragged him home.

So...20 seconds from start to finish?
Maybe 10 seconds.

Other owner grabbed the dog and left.
No idea if there was any biting.
Did get to the guy and offer him my name and address and say rusty had his shots.

White dog wasn't upset.

I usually do a nose to nose after a fight, just to make sure they are ok with each other. No time.


Now he is in his create with no toys and no blankets

I'm hoping he gets the idea I'm really pissed at him.

Went back to the park alone to see if anyone saw what happened. They all went home.
Well, it was right before it gets dark.

Or they aren't dog park people and never saw a "fight" before.

I don't know if this was a real fight or just a growl fest.

PIA dog.

I wonder if Rusty got bit? I don't know which dog started it, but rusty was a good 40 lbs larger.

Ever since he got bit and bit the dog back, he makes me nervous. He knows how to draw blood now.
