The U.S. National Hurricane Center is warning that Hurricane Dorian could grow to a massive Category 3 storm by Sunday night and will likely blast the east coast of Florida before moving inland. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/timothymeads/2019/08/29/hurricane-dorian-expected-to-hit-florida-sunday-night-n2552357 It will come as no surprise to regular readers that I’ve been following Dorian in my spare time.

It was a frigid 64° when I got up this morning. Refreshing. Making progress on the project that goes by the name, “Returning to the Civilized.” College football commences in earnest this evening and continues through the long weekend. Mr. Big Food is excited. As am I.

It is only 85° at 11:08am. Yet the heat index is 106°. The relative humidity is 84%, there is light drizzle and the sun is shining. I do not think I’ve ever seen a 20+ degree difference between the temperature and heat index before. Carry on.
It is the position of DOE that Americans should set their thermostats to whatever temperature they choose.

This is hilarious. I tried to buy a gun at Walmart twice, and roadblocks left me empty-handed both times I encourage you to read the whole thing because it is laugh out loud funny how completely ignorant some people are. Pay particular attention to the “roadblocks,” otherwise know as rules. So this woman starts by
Those of a certain age will remember James J. Kilpatrick (1920-2010), a true political pundit (“learned man”) before the term came into popular use.

Purdy, ain’t it? Froze beans yesterday. That would be yesterday, August 15th. You are correct in thinking that ain’t right. Details to follow.
