Oh, it's not me getting wet I'm concerned about. It's driving rain getting into the cylinder as I change the plug. I don't want to contend with water in it as I try to start it.

Now that's a good wife! She got any sisters for me? I had a girl that was a massage therapist. Never gave me a massage. Organized garages for people. Never offered to help me with my disorganized shop. Life coach, her life was a wreck :D :lol:

I attended to two customer's roofs today. Nothing more I can do.
Gotta dig that ditch tomorrow I hope. And get to the basement issues. I can't enjoy this no way.

As long as we don't have another major flood I'll be happy, trees only take a few days to clean up....... they are still working on my Brothers house.

RUH ROH ~~~!!!!!

from Republican/Herald newspaper 10-27

"Up to 2 feet of snow should fall on West Virginia, with lighter snow in parts of Ohio and Pennsylvania. A wide swath of the East, measuring several hundreds of miles, will get persistent gale-force 50 mph winds, with some areas closer to storm landfall getting closer to 70 mph, said James Franklin, forecast chief for the National Hurricane Center in Miami."

Last year when the tropical storm stalled over us there were so many downspouts going into the sewers that the sewers overflowed. We had a geyser of sewer water coming out of the basement toilet for two days. Knocked a hole in the wall and directed it outside. Gotta do what you gotta do.

I'm in Ohio, so I will not likely see what many of you will be experiencing to any significant degree, but one thing is sure, Indian Summer is over and the slide into winter is upon us.

I'm not sure what speed this storm is moving up the coast but it is Slow ! TWC still shows it down by Florida, the speed is going to keep the strong winds, rain, and surge pounding for a couple days when and if it does come ashore as predicted.

The wife and I decided to stay local instead of going to AC for the anniversary this weekend, gives me an extra day to get loose items like lawn chairs, trash cans ect put away. Items like gas, gennie, food, sump pumps, heat, and water is covered.

I will see which way the winds blow in from and try and keep the vehicles away from the trees but that will tough. Then again :idea:

Must better place for this post. 8-)

Batten down those hatches all my coal burning buddies who in the path of this storm. It's looking like a pretty wide area with allot of you in the path. I know you guys are prepared as one can be in these type instances so fingers are crossed that no one gets hammered to badly. Lots of fresh water stashed and all that.

Richard, I really hope that you DONT ;) (edit) get flooded again. I can still recall those pix form the last time! Huge mess.

I'm looking to only be on the fringe, but still, I'm gunna make sure things are tied down around the yard. I have a 20 yrd roll off full of my last 20yrs of hoarding and crap so I'll need to make sure that doesn't re-deposit it's self. Kim's been on a tear to "get rid if it!" ever since she got back from the UK a couple weeks ago.
Anyways, stay safe my friends.
