If rebuilding, I suggest going with the red roof.

What the hell were they doing there? Aren't they well north of $300 million each? It's not like they're immobile or anything. Get them the heck out of Dodge.

Only thing I can think of is that they weren't flight ready. Maybe some sort of maintenance issues prevented them from being flown out. Otherwise, leaving them behind probably wasn't the smartest thing to do.

Quit making this about you. Buc2 was CLEARLY looking for approval as to his choice of dresses.

Personally, I think it's a bit too conservative. I know you don't have much going on in the cleavage department, so maybe show a little more leg.

Great story ..

Image


A call for help by a Florida family after Hurricane Michael left devastation across the state's Panhandle region was answered on Saturday thanks to a woman's keen eye when scanning satellite data.

Amber Gee was scanning the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's interactive aerial map to check in on damage to her grandmother's property when something stuck out in particular to her: the word "HELP" spelled out in the yard.

Gee had thought her grandmother and other two relatives had evacuated before the Category 4 storm with 155 mph winds made landfall in Mexico Beach and roared across Florida's Panhandle into Georgia, flattening trees and damaging structures in its wake.

Her uncle, his wife, and a friend of theirs had ended up staying at the house in Youngstown, located 20 miles northeast of Panama City, and became trapped due to "a lot of downed trees" near the home, so he spelled out the word "H-E-L-P" in the yard, which was spotted on the aerial photo. Gee then contact the Bay County Emergency Management, who sent deputies to the home and rescued the group.

"This is an incredible story of how people are working together in this situation," Bay County Emergency Management posted on Facebook. "Someone from another county was using the mapping app to check property in rural Bay County and noticed the word “help” spelled out in the grass in logs. That person immediately contacted us and sent the picture and we dispatched needed assistance."

Just for the season .. Let's hope this dies out before getting through to the gulf or someone in the States may see something

Hurricane Willa is going to hit the west Coast of Mexico in the next day as a Cat 5. Current winds are at ~160

Are the people in that area equipped to handle that type of thing? I'm guessing they're not.

Mexico gets hit with hurricanes on their west coast pretty often, so you'd be surprised.

I'm not sure that there is such a thing as being equipped to handle a Cat 5. You measure it more by ability to get back close to your normal than anything else.

Yeah, I was just thinking a hurricane stronger than Michael in a much poorer area probably isn't good.
