A couple of hours ago Chicago had a depleted feeder band from Irma pass overhead and give us a half hour shower.

Lawyerliz said...

Wow. I have a long story, but too tired to tell it now.

Rob Dawg said...

S'okay Liz. When you are ready.

LBD said...

As long as you guys are safe. Rest we will be here when you are ready.

Rob Dawg said...

Think about recent conversations.

Where else can you talk about depleted weather bands, organic batteries, historical precedent for political movements and all the rest without getting called names?

LBD said...

The best😎

Lawyerliz said...

Name: dillitantes

Lawyerliz said...

I fell rescuing cat. Upper lip hideous. The took me to an awful Hospital strapped down. Back and neck fell like I couldn't breathe. What a relief when they took it off. Of course I didn't break my back or nect. A mild concussion. Am in a hotEl on uper I 95. Still don't know how my house is. My doc's office is in a high rise off cocoa Beach, which got it medium bad, so I hope HE'S functional.

Unknown said...

It's my experience that lawyers have thick skin and hard heads, so you win on both counts. Hopefully your return home will speed up your complete recovery. Thanks for again proving that "there is no place like home" and that "no good deed goes unpunished".
As an old gambler, I'm again betting on you and the cat. good luck.

Lawyerliz said...

The home might have no ac!

Lawyerliz said...

Some fiends have power some . I don't think any have clean water.
It must be awful in the keys.

Lawyerliz said...

Friends!!!!!
We have 2 or 3 days of clean water, or more. Didn't use any.

Rob Dawg said...

Oh dear. A good deed punished. Get well soon.

Rob Dawg said...

There must have been a hurricane here too. The Dawghaus has no A/C either. 🐢

Lawyerliz said...

Hoefully, I sucked yours up.

Rubygoat said...

Can I say I love the collective media and house republican head explosion that Trump is working with Pelosi and Schumer. Why is it always a surprise when a President "reaches across the isle"? He is doing something that literally every other person in the job has done and it's treated as this great betrayal of party politics.

BTW I expect Trump to put huge efforts into disaster recovery. It's a no lose issue.

Rob Dawg said...

It wasn't the reaching across the aisle it was the implied "I'm only doing this because you Republican idiots can't get shit done."

Bet a lot if the obstructionism evaporates.

Cinco-X said...

Might even leverage The cooperation into something else he wants

EngineerJim said...

>Why is it always a surprise when a President "reaches across the isle"? He is doing something that literally every other person in the job has done and it's treated as this great betrayal of party politics.

I don't recall Obama reaching across the isle.
Personally I'm fine with Trump working with the Dems. If he can get things done that way, why should anyone care?

Rubygoat said...

Right, he has things he wants done and this is a totally normal thing for a president to do to turn his wishes into reality. The media is covering it like an episode of the Jersey Shore. We don't even know what the talking points were, just that they had a conversation about budgets. I've seen wild claims and speculation from all sides of the media and almost no actual reporting.

Rubygoat said...

You don't recall the amount of times Obama had to talk to republican leaders in the run up to ACA passing?

EngineerJim said...

>You don't recall the amount of times Obama had to talk to republican leaders in the run up to ACA passing?

Actually no, I don't.
I just remember Obama saying he won, end of discussion.
On the other hand, McConnell wasn't exactly a statesman either.

Great Unknown said...

I wonder how many accidents cats cause directly or indirectly on a annual basis? Full disclaimer: I once broke my left ACL looking for a missing cat.

Unknown said...

Republicans announced at the beginning of Obama's second term that they would not cooperate with him or the other Democrats. So he didn't try. I would have been useless.

Cinco-X said...

Reagan did

Cinco-X said...

Ya... Cuz they were total dicks when they controlled the presidency and both houses...

Unknown said...

Don't you mean the current Republican Congress are the ones who are the "total dicks"? They can't get along with one another nor with their President who is forced to deal with Democrats to accomplish anything.

LBD said...

Americas point, both parties suck. They voted T to get things done and cut the party BS. He is doing just that and the Repubs still think they are the big dog. Idiots are clueless as usual.

Lawyerliz said...

I think I heard he walked it back

Lawyerliz said...

I hope the Jose hit the white house and destroy the house that Trump thinks is such a dump

Lawyerliz said...

People in Naples are believing Trump when he says he will back them and see their houses will be fixed.

Lawyerliz said...

for One water surrounded house, this is the 3rd time the neighborhood has flood.

Lawyerliz said...

A Republic, if you can keep it

LBD said...

I am sure welfare housing gets rebuilt probably with upgrades.

Lawyerliz said...

Are Houston commercial buildings getting rebuilt, welfare recipients?

LBD said...

Somebody has to insure all those Bankster mortgages. Imagine if everyone walked away and never rebuilt.

Lawyerliz said...

The Gov has wanted few peole living on the keys for years and wisely but unsuccessfully tried to keep building down. I think at least a few people will walk away. It may be that some banks will refuse to lend. It is so beautiful there.

Rob Dawg said...

The NAS isn't going anywhere either.

Lawyerliz said...

NAS is a singer and computer something. What is it? Boil water is now resinded.

LBD said...

Good Morning!

Collin rate concert last night was great. Beach or bike ride today, Decisions.

LBD said...

Collin Raye.

Rob Dawg said...

Naval Air Station Key West. Boss Chica field.

Lawyerliz said...

Ahh. Bet it got only a little trashed.

Lawyerliz said...

Boca Chic little mouth?

Lawyerliz said...

Not a word about Houston.

Lawyerliz said...

Chica

My house untouched, except downed branches. Have electricity and clean water and even cable. I'm very fortunate.

Lawyerliz said...

In 1316 and 1317, the crops failed in England due to Global cooling
Caused by volcanos in Indonesia. There was a new weather cycle starting well before that, of cooling. Peasants saved because of poor grain harvests.

Lawyerliz said...

Peasants starved.

Rob Dawg said...

DYAC.

Cinco-X said...

I don't think you can directly attribute that to volcanoes in Indonesia. There was a 300 year period of strong warming prior to that, and it was so warm you could grow crops in Greenland. In all likelihood they experienced a collapse of the mid Atlantic conveyor which then triggered the little ice age. The volcanoes might have triggered a tipping point, but they weren't the main cause

LBD said...

Bike ride and a buffet. Kind of counter productive. 🎱

Lawyerliz said...

I just noticed I have a mild black eye too.

Lawyerliz said...

Actually it's more pinkish red. Harmonized with my red Hitler mustache.
Good morning.πŸ˜€

Lawyerliz said...

The Keys people swear they're going to re build. Our sustain wins about 7 feet up, we're 33. Our gusts 55. The house can surely take that. All my friends except one has electricity and water. We have one tree down. LadY who weeds will hopefully agree to get the pine needles out of the pool. Hub's writing course will resume monday. We took a fair amount, in case our house was destroyed, has to be pUT away. And there 2 more stores out there, one of which might head out way. And Jose, which might make a little landfall in the NE. And yes, I am obsessed.

LBD said...

Good Morning!

Glad your OK and little clean up is all that's needed.

Cinco-X said...

Chance of a shower Tuesday night. Otherwise not much rain in the forecast

Cinco-X said...

Ouch.. UCLA takes a spanking

Lawyerliz said...

Good. Morning.πŸ˜€ How much should the federal government spend on Houston and Florida, aND Californian dam.

Lawyerliz said...

An out Rigger canoe washed up by Irma, MAy or may not be ancient . The square nail indicate oldness.

LBD said...

Good Morning!

How about what ever it takes and start a FED tax on each street to spread out 10 years to cover some of the cost.

Unknown said...

I think laws have to be applied equally to everyone. I don't think you can tax one street but not another.

LBD said...

Fat fingers "state"

Lawyerliz said...

What happens if this storm hits the keys? Or one of the succeeding storms? Maria is following Irma's footsteps, which turned in the wrong direction, or a different direction, affecting Floridah again?

Lawyerliz said...

Or, anywhere on the east coast. Or Houston again. Does rebuilding at some point become foolish? I think so, but should we ptevent a lot of Darwin awards?

LBD said...

Certain areas like the Keys should be build at your own risk. That would change building techniques to cement pill boxes, to throw away housing. High risk high cost.

Lawyerliz said...

Beach shacks used to be beach shacks. A few substantially built hotels police stations and airports. is ok. With flood insurance 5 times what it was before. None for trailers.

Lawyerliz said...

Maria is an evil mother goddess. She is strentheng. She looks like she is gonna hit the islands, but go north. But she's taking the same path as Irma, which went farther west. We had no physical problems, tho our friends had water and electrical loss. So I feel somewhat nervous. I don't want to feel another week of fear Damage on Merritt Leland is minimal, tree branches trees, advertising signs, a few roofs, a few trailers. ( tornados.) Good, no Trp for a while. People being nice to each other.

Lawyerliz said...

Trump. If we can avoid Trump for a hurricane week can't we just ignore him for a few more weeks?

Lawyerliz said...

Where are all of you? Burnt out? Fearing an earthquake, since we've had everything ese? I tell Canada will invade because we've been so annoying.

LBD said...

Good Morning!

Cool week here, dry 90's. Beach tomorrow.

Great Unknown said...

That depends on the MSM (aka entertainment news). If there is something sensational they will "ride that horse." If not, they'll cover any Trump news. If no new Trump news, then they'll recycle old Trump news by using campaign clips out of context or they'll simply fabricate news using anonymous sources.


My advice is to "Just Say No" to MSM.

Lawyerliz said...

Now it turns out my house has a leak, and a dangerously droopy branch m

Will the huuicane mess make the unemployment rate be lower or higher. In a couple of months??

Cinco-X said...

Irma no, Harvey yes

Lawyerliz said...

There are claims for the destruction of 100,000 cars. Maybe more now. They must be replaced. GODDESS Knows how may boats. Any mortgaged houses will have flood insurance and some who aren't mortgaged. Furniture, clothes, washers flashight. So, business

Lawyerliz said...

I despair of ever getting a return comment

Cinco-X said...

Sadzz...

Cinco-X said...

But in all seriousness, I do reply to you frequently, though EN's comment interface may be making it hard for you to find.

Lawyerliz said...

Yezzzz

LBD said...

I'm here. But on vacation. Not much news from me but I haven't lost the house Gambling. I haven't eve n lost enough to make a payment which I don't have. White table cloth dining last night, stake, shrimp scampi in a puff pastry, chocolate moose piramid with raspberry sauce. Fantastic evening over looking the river at sunset with my favorite gal.πŸ₯‚

Lawyerliz said...

Yay.

Lawyerliz said...

Phoey.

LBD said...

Good Morning!

Lots of natural disasters, fires hurricanes, now earthquakes. What's next.😲

Cinco-X said...

Ummmm... Time for a new post?

LBD said...

Anybody hear how much the Clintons or their foundation contributed to the hurricane relief?

Lawyerliz said...

Where is dawg? Earthquakes in Vanatu and Japan.

LBD said...

Where is everyone? Barry Manilow tribute at the Cocacabna. Top notch stuff! Slots paid the tickets and drinks today. 😏

Great Unknown said...

It's fall. We're all out doing yard work while the weather is good or taking "secret season" vacations at the beach. Both in my case.

Lawyerliz said...

Some of us are hiding fromhurricans.

An inverse Dawin Award: some Mexico City people, trapped in the eat quake used coins rubbed against metal to make noise, were heard and saved. They need to have many children

Lawyerliz said...

Great quake

LBD said...

Good Morning! πŸ€‘

Interesting no one will touch my Clinton comment.

Lawyerliz said...

Lbd, I would like to know too. Also Trumps. It's not a question of afraid of looking, I've just been busy since you posted

Lawyerliz said...

Shall we sing a dirge for Dawg?

LBD said...

I heard T gave a million after Huston but nothing since. A million for each storm could get real expensive this year.

Lawyerliz said...

Did the money actually get there?

LBD said...

No idea if it did but I bet the haters would on top of it, if it didn't.

LBD said...

What a Lucky lady I have. Making money playing slots and she still likes me. Crazy world! 😍

Lawyerliz said...

Loan comment: they're Baaaaccccckkkkk
2nd mortgages advertised on tv. Saying a great deal of money is locked in your home and you can get it out, and the loan company can help you. It is only 10 years or less that this attitude nearly brought down the financial world. What stupidity! What greed! Maybe you should make the potential borrowers wait a year after aplication to go through with it. Texas used to have a law that said no 2nds unless for home improvement or repair. It was repealed in time to not protect the Texans from the countrywide borrowing foolishness. Second mtg to go on vacation!!! Endless stuidity.

Lawyerliz said...

I had a 2nd mortgage comment,n but it was eaten.

Lawyerliz said...

There it is.

LBD said...

Good Morning!🌞

They work hard at that part time job and need a vacation. Greed is good just like the movie said and I am entitled. 🎱

Cinco-X said...

Ewwww... Touch a Clinton?!

Cinco-X said...

Morning all...

Rob Dawg said...

Hey. Been busy. New post.
