    Actually I expect they're working on the Super Ultra Classic King Elvis Retro range right now.

    Ian should move offshore later today. There's a risk it will re-intensify before hitting South Carolina over the weekend. It ain't over yet.

    Well. It was a bitterly cold 65 Fahrenheit in Cypress at 5 am on Monday. 95 by mid afternoon though.

    An approaching very low pressure area, like the eye of a hurricane, will pull the ocean towards it. High pressure outside, low pressure inside, the ocean rises inside the eye and falls outside. That's the good part. The bad part is that all that higher water inside the eye will arrive sooner...

    Now the truth about that. In about 2009 I met the Coastguard in person in Stonehaven (in a pub, naturally, called The Hook and Eye). The truth was he was enjoying a somewhat liquid lunch in another pub called The Creel, and had left the parking brake off.

    I hate hurricanes

    Several years ago there was a story going around about how a UK Coastguard got dispatched to just south of Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire, Scotchland, to report wind strength during a gale. When his boss got hold of him by phone, he asked what the wind speed was. The reported reply was something...

    My parents had a vacation home in Spring Hill, just north of Tampa. I bet they're glad they sold it now! Stay safe everyone.

    Does your TV station send out its cub reporters to stand in front of a camera and say really useful things like "well Chuck, it's very windy and raining a lot..."?🙄

    Statistically, here in Houston, you're more likely to be killed in a road crash trying to evacuate than staying and riding it out. Go to the liquor store, load up, go home, get hammered and stay hammered until the lights come back on is the best bet.

    I hate hurricanes

    Worst I personally had to endure was a severe gale back in 1990. 12 meter / 40 foot significant (meaning 20 meter / 65 foot max) waves as we ran for cover in Shetland. 450 foot ship. Worst part about it was there was a table in my cabin that kept skidding across the floor smacking the side of...

    I hate hurricanes

    stormy hates hurricanes 😁 FWIW there used to be an oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico called Typhoon.. It was a mini tension leg platform, which meant it floated and was held in place by long tendons going down to piles in the seabed, about 2,000 feet below. Typhoon platform before and after...

    I have a spare neck for a V. I can get a fake SG body for under $100. I might just go for it with a set of SD Pearly Gates...

    Billy Gibbons Last Night

    Superb. Elwood is a fantastic replacement for Dusty Hill, no disrespect to Dusty of course. And they've dropped the keyboard stuff since I saw them in 2019. Jeff Beck coming on for the encores sealed it.

    Billy Gibbons Last Night

    Opened with what looked like an SG body mated to a Flying V neck. Is this a standard, if rare, Gibson offering or a Gibbons special?

    Wimmin folk only allowed in with clear plastic bags. Stuff inside the clear bag can be opaque, but the outside bag has to be clear. What dumbass thought that one up? And what for? They have metal detectors as well.
