   Safetydude posted on Jokes  Ok, so these two guys are walking down the street outside a tall fence that you can't see through.
From behind the fence they hear a chorus of voices chanting "21-21-21".
"I wonder what that means?" says one guy.
As they walk on they come to a small opening in the fence and the guy puts his eye to the hole to see if he can figure out what "21" means.
While he's looking in the hole somebody pokes him in the eye with a sharp stick!
"22-22-22..."

   Safetydude  I have seen photographs of alligators on various FL courses and I've also seen them in person. Years ago I was with a couple guys doing some training at Eglin AFB, in Niceville and we played three-four times a week.
As long as you had your cart nearby you were ok but you never shagged an errant ball in the rough if it was near water, and water was everywhere. If you couldn't see your ball you took a penalty and dropped another another one.
There were warning signs all along the fairways saying not to go near the water, because of the danger of alligators.

   FlatCityGirl  The answer is, they will never be off the Public Teat.

Not only will they get their "retirement" pay and lifelong Secret Service protection, transportation, housing, etc., they will make unheard of demands long after January, 2017.

That pair of grifters will suck this nation dry if given half a chance, and at this juncture, we have no reason to believe they won't be given more than half a chance --judging strictly by McConnell's and Ryan's penchant for bowing and scraping and saying, "Yes, Massa, yes," every time the Mulatto or Sasquatch demand something new.

As long as the likes of McConnell and Ryan and the rest of the Republican Bow-Boys are running things, the Mulatto will run them ragged.

I hope my grandchildren live long enough to see 0bama's grave turned into a public toilet.

   Escaped commieny  As a lone female sales rep covering 30 Fl Counties, I was never without protection, now a days, I don't take out the garbage unarmed. Even at the Space Center, they just put it in a box until I was done with my calls. Outside of court houses and schools I don't believe in gun free zones.

   Safetydude posted on Coffee Klatch  Years and years ago I was in Ft. Lauderdale with a group to accomplish our open water SCUBA certification. Then the next day we were taking a bus to Key Biscayne to do a drift dive back to Lauderdale, for one more night.
Well, the open water certification went fine and we were looking forward to the the dive the next day.
Waaael, sometime during the middle of the night we were told we would have leave the hotel because of the weather coming in. The dive was cancelled and we started to head north to get away from the coming hurricane. My dive buddy and his wife had flown down from Atlanta but now they couldn't get a flight out of Lauderdale so they joined Miss Tina and me in my car and the four of us headed north on I-95. We soon realized that was a looser so we went back to A1-A cruised on up to Daytona beach, checked into two adjoining rooms in a beachfront hotel and settled down with adult beverages to watch the storm out in the Atlantic. As we were watching the surfers and people on the beach a TV camera crew set up on the beach, almost below us. We turned on the TV in our room and watched the reporterette standing right where the surf broke on the beach, her loose hair and raincoat blowing in the wind, telling us how bad the storm was. We sat on the balcony and watched her on the beach, with people walking behind the cameraman, while at the same time we could see the image on the TV.
What a crock! The people were out in the surf and the rain having a fun time and she was telling us the world was going to end.
Never trusted the weatherguessers on TV since.

   MeiDei  Right on! My brother lived in FL for many years & grew complacent over the hyped weather reports. After one fierce storm & sink holes swallowing cars I asked him if he evacuated & if any damage - he replied w/news of water damage --- in the one room they neglected to close a window! : )
My grandfather was able to read the weather by watching a tall factory chimney across the river by watching how the smoke came out. Some of us rely on our knees.

   Escaped commieny  SD, we have watched many storms from The Deck at New Smyrna beach with adult beverages ! However after losing 15 trees and half the roof over the master bedroom, spending 5 mo. in the guest room after the 2004 multiple hurricanes, I watch the weather and like MD says I pay attention to my knees and wrists. We have Dade Co approved shutters and the roof was saved by clips but lost the shingles so a lot of water damage.

   Safetydude  I'm sorry about your loss and your extended suffering, Ec.
Did you evacuate your home and come back to find the damage, or did you poo-poo any warnings and ride it out?
My point was, and is, that the weather guessers are more interested in drama than being correct.
Can you think of any other group of paid professionals that can be wrong so consistently as TV weather guessers?
Back in the day, we used to get weather briefings as part of our pre-flight briefings every morning, prior to the start of the flying day. Our 'Wing King' would introduce our(female )Met officer as "Stormy, the weather guesser".

These are the same people who are trying to tell us what the weather will be 50 years, or so, from now and they can't get the weather right for the next twenty-four hours.
My $.05 worth.

   Escaped commieny  The first one was Charlie and DH had his high profile rig going North. I was home & that one was not that bad, nothing a good bottle of wine didn't fix. The next 3 taught us lessons, like not picking up shingles in the yard, most had snakes hiding underneath. Every where has something, I will take hurricanes over fires or tornadoes and don't miss the snow and black ice.

   FlatCityGirl  You two [Safetydude and EC] live in Florida, and I would trust you both to know the area you live in, and when to take a weather report seriously and when to blow it off. You may not always be right, but I figure you’re right more often that you’re wrong.

I turn on the Weather Channel around 5am every day for no other reason than there isn’t a darned thing on anywhere else. I quit FOX well over two years ago, so I’m pretty much stuck for early morning programs. I have a lot of friends and family scattered around the country and I like to know what kind of weather they are experiencing. I just have to filter out the hysteria.

Right now, Cantori and the Bimbos [sounds like a ‘60's rock band] are hysterical about the heat. I guess none of them looked at a calendar and realized that it’s summer and it’s supposed to be hot.

They make up words to boost the hysteria. If we hear something like “Tour-Con” we’re supposed to run for the cellar. I think it has something to do with tornados. Maybe it’s hurricanes. I can’t remember. Anyway, that’s one of those “dog whistle” words that the Democrats are always talking about, and we’re supposed to get really excited and scared.

In all seriousness, hurricanes are really nothing to make light of. I’ve been in three hurricane evacuations –twice off of the Outer Banks, and off of Jekyll Island, in Hugo in 1989, when Charleston was so hard hit. It’s nothing that I ever want to go through again.

   Escaped commieny  SD, how did Collin treat you ? I haven't heard from Phooey or Gram yet, we just had high winds and rain but Winter Park had a spot that was nailed. DH had his Maitland Dr today and everything looked OK and part of Volusia Co w/o power.

   Safetydude  Thank You for asking, Ec.

We had high winds and lot's o' rain but no damage in our community. The only damage I've heard about was beach erosion out on Manasota Key and a shed blown away in Sarasota.
I think, one more time, a bunch of TV weather guessers and other weather types went out of their way to gin up weather
drama.

I think the public has been made so complacent that no one takes the warnings seriously, any longer.
I've been a cynic for years and when, and if, it's time to bug out I'll make the decision by looking out the window, not by watching TV.

If you're interested, I'm going to post a little story about a trip to FL many years prior to us settling here, on the Coffee Klatch page.
