My aunt and her family won't have power for a couple of weeks, and all her roads are flooded.  But they're all okay, they're all safe and they're all alive, and that's all that matters.

Something my wife has taught me - things are just things, and things can be replaced.  People can't.

Always fascinating to me when these arch-conservative governors like Scott, Christie etc find their humanity and actually do their jobs well when some hurricane/tornado is wreaking havoc on their states. They lose it again over time, of course, but it's almost charming to see.

He should still be hit by a bus.

True. 

Tally people losing their shit because Steak & Shake doesn't have tomatoes while I think I heard 130 local gas stations have no gas. 

Tomorrow at my weekly Trivia I am so getting hammered then watching Lucha Underground episode 100.

My theory is that they HAVE to act that way; if they were there normal shit headed selves, they'd be lynched. But then I'm the cynical type. . . .

Got out and about yesterday, and my home seems to be fine. Lots of limbs down, so I played pick-up sticks for a while, but the trees themselves are OK.

I had to curse out some asshole here in the 804 on post yesterday.  Some old retired Army fuck was in the process of chewing out the service person because of the high price for gas. 

I stepped in and was like, "The refineries are on the Gulf Coast and they just experienced epic rainfall.  Unless you want to go to Texas with a bucket and start bailing, you need to chill."

I really don't buy the corporate line about oil supply and shit.  I just hate seeing people getting railed on for shit that isn't in their realm of control.

Damn.  Good to hear he's okay, but sucks to hear that his power is still out.

Finally got power back this afternoon after losing it Sunday night. Luckily my place didn't get hit as bad as a couple miles down the road where it's flooded. it was hot as hell in the 90's all week which sucked. Lots of debris and trees down. Also a big gas and water/ice shortage here in Central Florida.  I feel bad for people further down south that will take months to get back home.
