In no particular order, and some repeated from Thursday’s post, here are 10 quick and easy things to do this weekend which hopefully will get your brain ready to prepare for a power outage. It’s all about thinking ahead. 1. Unplug your refrigerator How long does your fridge stay cold and your freezer frozen when
Of course it will, and then I’ll be muttering about the cold and rain.
Our potter / artist pal, The Alchemist, lives waaay up north. Though you didn’t hear too much about it, Nova Scotia got hit by Dorian. Hundreds of thousands of folks were without power for days. I’m not an expert on Nova Scotia but my assumption is this is not a frequent occurrence for Nova Scotians.
Almost Summer. Summer. Still Summer. Christmas. We have officially entered Still Summer. That’s without the heat index– not that that matters. Hardest hit? Poor Tiger.
With all due respect and sympathies to folks affected, there are some good ones coming up. Via Powerline’s The Week in Pictures.
Spend most of the day in Starkvegas. Strangely, it was not too busy even in the early afternoon. No one in The Little Dooey when we were there. Kickoff is at 2:30 tomorrow. Wonder if this could have something to do with the lack of traffic? We have decided to stay home and watch the
I had asked, in the previous post, Daughter C & The J-Man, Miss M. if you’re reading this, how about telling us what’s going on in your part of the world? Daughter C delivers. Miss M is dealing with some non-hurricane related water issues.
Aren’t you glad I did the Radar Scope tutorial earlier? There are currently 14 warnings from NWS Morehead. All are flash floods. I know 5″ doesn’t sound like that much. But it is Down East Carolina. Perspective: Dorian has picked up speed– up to 10 mph now. That’s a good thing. Get the hell out

Pretty funny and not too far off.
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. The forecast path
The thunder was so deep it resonated my swim bladder.
I heard about this on NOAA weather radio the other day.
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.
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.
124° seems a little over the top if you ask me. And yet… Plus… That’s a Wunderground station about six miles from the Farm. Let me also say that beyond the obvious of 11 degrees, 113, 124– what’s the difference?
