I just got my electric and Internet back last night, and I live in the sticks.

I liked it better when they were all female names...made more since then. The male names **** with my mind...I want to stay and fight them instead of evacuating. Before it was just: "**** this ****, we'll be in Dallas before that bitch gets here."

As I posted on another site:

No power loss, no trees down, no flooding, but there is half of a leaf on the back deck which we will try to match up to a plant later.

Now I need to put the generator away, unboard the windows, and let the air out of the life raft.

People less than a mile away were totally wiped out by the flooding

Everything was shut down here... for no reason.

Bunch of leaves blew off the trees and the power was out for 36hrs, but only because our power company sent all our crews to NY to help there so we had no one left.

My parents live on the other side of my "hill". It takes about 15-20 minutes to get there, some people who are "flat-landers" would call it a mountain. They're out of power until Monday.

On the other hand if they hadn't shut down everything and it did get bad everybody would be crying "they should have shut it down" .

He is at Burning Man. He left before the storm even hit MD. Last I heard from him was that he was picking up a cheap tent, some nuts, and 12 gallons of water for the event. So he might die at Burning Man.

more:

I guess he dyed a t-shirt or something



"Oldies music at silver diner at 5am with no sleep. I want to kill everything."



"Ah good old Reno NV. As ugly and tacky as this picture makes you look."



I guess he was getting close



"Here I go again, on the road again, on my own. Me and the great western USA."



"Goodbye world. I'll see you on the other side."

I think he's jealous of the hippie lifestyle.

seems natural disasters only occur when I leave the country.

i missed the multi-blizzard storm
i missed the earthquake
i missed the hurricane

so next time I leave town, buy more TP, bread, and milk as a preventative measure
