It was a very cool day in the Northeast.

Americans were too busy dealing with real problems (like WWII) to waste on energy on fake problems (like climate change.)

Climate change has been fake news for hundreds of years. It is an obsession of the world’s stupidest people.

    That Brisbane article sounds like a Mark Twain quote….lol
    I’d like to think that he’d see right through these Charlatans.
    He’d have a field day with Bill Nye!

    Florida will have its power restored in a few days.

    If Florida was powered by solar power it would be weeks or months to rebuild the solar capacity.

    On that day in 1944 two Coast Guard Cutters foundered off Cape Hatteras. The CGC Bedloe and CGC Jackson. At total of 47 men were lost. The same storm?

    The one hurricane referred to had to have done more damage to the US mainland and war industry than The Nazis or Japan did during the whole war.

    New Orleans levees are built on a substrate of clay and silt that is subsiding in many parts of the city. The wetlands to the south are eroding, and sinking. They really should get serious about strategic, selective retreat from the lowest parts. Good luck selling that one. But everyone has it out for poor abused louisiana according to their cong delegation.

      ANY idiot who builds on a flood plain gets no sympathy from me.

      I’m the one who had to go hunting all over for business insurance after the insurance companies ‘reconfigured’ to stop losses and ended up with Lester “Kalmanson Agency Inc. specializes in insuring rare and unusual risks, … Simply put, we cover the Wild, the Weird, and the Wacky.” at DOUBLE the price.

      On the up side Kalmanson gives really great service. Lester, who imports live Russian fox, even reassured me that the red fox that wandered up to me did not have rabies but was only curious. This particular fox has no fear of us and sits in the driveway waiting for us to come home.

        You feeding him/her?

        I have had a few run ins with Red Foxes, and they are naturally curious and natural opportunists. Females with young will do just about anything to procure food, and are not above dining with humans. A friend of mine managed a full service auto shop, where they had a female with cubs that would hang out in the shop with them. Impact wrenches going off, cars coming in and out of the shop, and loud banging did not deter her from procuring every last morsel the mechanics could spare. Some days, after a good meal, she would sleep just inside the bay doors, unconcerened with the humans and their noisy habits.

        • Gail Combs says:

          Yes, that’s my red fox. We have seen her with cubs. I think she waits hoping we will walk/mow the fields and stir up the rabbits, field mice and field rats for her to dine on.

          We have a red tail hawk who does the same.

    Nope! Still won’t post.

    Links to couple helicopter pics of US military relief for Harvey and Irma.
    I got out of the service in 1992 and have flown on both of these types of helicopters. The UH-60 Blackhawk came into service in 1979. The CH-53 Sea Stallion came into service in 1966. Now think about that.
