Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 09:28 AM by DS1
barometric minute by minute pressure readings from a hurricane that's a week away, and will only affect a tiny portion of the country?

Sure, it sounds cold, but this place turns in to the NOAA Underground, and it's a fucking race to post the first updates :eyes:

Gimmie a goddamn break.

6. Provide links please.



Just kidding.


One of the cliche lines I learned by hanging around GD. No matter what you post someone always wants verification.

17. Because it's EVERYWHERE!
and as a special bonus prize - someone has the 'courtesy' to drop in other forums and say "Hey, Cooking and Baking group, there's a hurricane watch in Marion Country - RECORD STORM"

No shit.

28. News Flash!
If you live in that "tiny portion of the country" and you're sick of dodging the damn hurricanes and can't move yet ... and you've been seeing hurricane damage for two months, you can get pretty darn scared. I don't mind if a few people are scared with me. And I'm glad there are some DUers who do consider it a big enough deal to start a thread. Maybe if my house blows away and I'm underneath the rubble for two months before I'm discovered, you won't notice. Maybe someone will say, "Anyone heard from AirmensMom?" :shrug:

BTW, the hurricane is not a week away. Just saying.

29. No , no guarantee's
Guarantees are mostly useless anyway. Uselessness is a hobby and in the mind and heart of the "useless blow by blow" posters they/we may or may not consider it thus. Sorry... BTW (Convolutedness and poor sentence structure was meant as a joke).

30. You mean this ~isn't~
a neocon plot to distract us from Karl Rove's indictment and Harriet Miers' confirmation hearings?

Huh.


Whodda thunk.
