Calma---do you want me to give you my votes as we go along, or just wait until the end of the contest?

I can send you what I have for the first two categories, at least for the contestants I've seen.

What happened to hue and Saruman? :?

Not to mention Sidd, although he's probably really busy with school and all.

Oh, can anyone give me a crash course in Twitter? I need to set up something for our consolidation vote coming up in the next few months...a discussion group. I started by finding out someone else was using my email address and had to fix that... ugh.

Crash course in Twitter: Twitter is what happens when you want to write a text message and have no one to write it to.
"...Their aim in war with Germany is nothing more, nothing less than extermination of Hitlerism... There is absolutely no justification for this kind of war. The ideology of Hitlerism, just like any other ideological system, can be accepted or rejected, this is a matter of political views. But everyone grasps, that an ideology can not be exterminated by force, must not be finished off with a war.” - Vyacheslav Molotov, ""On the Foreign Policy of the Soviet Union", 31 October 1939

Well, the rains came yesterday and steadily got heavier.
The wind sorta happened about 11pm.
I got a couple of light blinks and a few pine cones landed on my house.
Not over yet though.
We are expecting another round this afternoon
But Saturday is the day we're all getting ready for.
So if you don't hear from me over the weekend
You know what happened.

Happy Friday/Saturday.
Later.

That's a big "me too". Been raining real hard all day here. Gusts of wind too. Hopefully we won't loose power. Been seriously winking on and off most of the day. Closed the shop 2 hours early.
Stay safe everyone. Hope you keep your power. :)

Had a doctor's appointment this morning.
Had to go to East Bremerton (about 12 miles from home)
In the rain, the wind and the semi dark.
Mommy don't see so good in the dark.
Checked on line before I left and saw there was a wreck on the freeway
And the back up was at least 3 miles.
So I took Bay Street out of town.

No easy task navigating all that traffic
But I got to the East Side and found out that 5 minutes before I got there
They had lost power. :bang:
So I asked to be rescheduled and went home.
At least the dark was gone, but not the wind and rain.

Gads, I hate Autumn....

btw, Ninui, I got no problem with Gamling re-entering the games.
I don't think heliona or LK will object either.
Get your boy to the red carpet then the interview asap...

Still here! The wind hasn't arrived yet.
Yesterday two F2 tornadoes hit the coast of Oregon.
We don't get tornadoes up here.

Anyway, the winds are scheduled to arrive in my area around 2 this afternoon.
I'm set for it.
After the blizzard we had in '08
I've been prepared for things like this.

Ninui, you take care, hear?

According to the weather reports
The system has moves slightly
So the winds won't last that long.
But I say an hour or so of 50mph gusts
Is quite enough.

The coast is going to get the worst of it.
I'm near the Puget Sound far inland from the coast
And it's 60+mph winds.
It hasn't hit yet, but it's coming.
Just hope I don't lose power.
There's a baseball game to be watched today.

Yeah, so far so good.
The wind is starting to move the trees and bushes.
Not strong yet, but they say that won't happen until about 8 or 9
Just as long as I can watch the Cubs v Dodgers game
I'll be happy.

I am on the coast just a few miles inward from the ocean. I have a huge bay just down the road from the house. We are expecting coastal flooding and gusts of wind up to 45 mph. Some reports say 55 !! :shock: . Supposed to be better tomorrow. Thunder storms & rain is better ? Will be shutting down soon after this posting. Doing okay right now. Please don't worry. Back in a day or two.

Well, that was a bust.
At least in my neck of the woods.
Yeah, I had a couple of good blows
But nothing to write home about.
Didn't even blink the lights.
I hope all other areas did well.


eta....Sunday Morning 9:15am PST

The reason we didn't get blown off the map
Is the storm track moved to the left 20 miles.
So we did get some strong winds and some damage
But not to what was forecasted.
Unfortunately, Vancouver Island got it instead.

At least that's what it looks like right now. Overcast, winds picking up, etc.

Looked out the window this morning about 8:30
And saw men in hard hats wandering about the front yard.
For a moment I was like: "What the...?"
Then I remembered the neighbor came over a couple of weeks ago
And informed me she was removing her tree
And that the removal service would have to use my front yard.
No biggie for us or the landlord
So today they are removing the pine tree that likes to throw stuff at my house.
It stands, or used to stand, right by my bedroom wall
And sometimes in the heavy wind, it's branches and pine cones just did tap dances on my wall.
There were times when I thought I would wake up next to a tree or dead.

Happy to see it go.
And now I have some really neat pictures for the 365! :D

Sorry I dropped balls on MOME guys. :( It was an unexpectedly busy week. Last Monday was my birthday, but I spent my last day with the elderly friend I helped care for as his son decided he had to go to a personal care home. He didn't, but the son has power of attorney so...then on Wednesday we went to visit my cousin who had been quite ill with cancer and on Thursday night she passed. Her kids and husband had no idea what to do...so mom and I called the funeral home, worked with the hospice nurse, notified family and some friends, hugged a lot, helped plan the memorial, hugged a lot more, cried... you get the idea. :) Her memorial was yesterday and it was beautiful. But, now I have a cold. :(

*sigh* Bob and I will get rolling here soon.
