  1. So I suspect I will be laid off on Monday..I have always wanted to chase. I remember as a kid ..Gloria '85 sitting in our garage in Northern RI w the door open as it ripped through our neighborhood (our mom sadly made us come in at one point). I want my daughter to experience that as well (just turned 11 and loves everything outside)..it was what started my fascination/enthusiasm/ respect with weather (that and '78 blizzard). Since I will have no where to be for a month and can go anywhere...best place to catch this thing? I know this is too early to speculate.. But I got nothing but time on my hands and I am going to make the best of it!! (I was already looking and have a gig starting in Sept...this is not a bad thing for me). .
  2. My husband was in on Saturday afternoon - he went gluten free in January but cheated with a Lefty Lucy!

    Look at what is going on in Ecuador; humidity does not appear to be a factor w Covid 19.

    Our final payment is due in a couple of weeks. I'm hoping they let us postpone to next April. Based on the trajectory of Covid 19 there is no way we would feel safe travelling through Quayaquil for some time. Especially since it is a humanitarian crises there on top of the virus. Really sad what is happening.... Who are you cruising with? We are w Huagan on the Camila. Sorry if this is banter...

    COVID-19 Talk

    I have been tracking Ecuador for a while as we have a trip planned to the Galapagos in July (not hopeful). I was hoping we would have a break in the summer with warmer temps and higher humidity but Ecuador is a mess right now. Granted the people of Guayaquil where most of the cases are were not disciplined and were celebrating Carnival which led to the spread there. In Quito it is not nearly as bad. However, based on Florida and New Orleans as well, I don't think Covid 19 will behave like H1N1 or the seasonal flu. It seems to be able to handle the humidity better and not break down.
  6. Heavy heavy rain in Sterling w respectable gusts.
  7. I just got to Bahrain yesterday for work and a sandstorm has moved in. It's supposed to get worse so I will wait until it does before heading out for a sand Jebwalk.
  8. At Camden Yards...drops are so fat it looks like its snowing. Unbelievable.
  9. IMBY ? ...I have a 430 flight out of Dulles Thurs afternoon that I am confident about...but friends have a 6am to Jackson Hole. If this wraps up midnight I would assume flights would only have a slight delay but would you play it safe and sleep at airport hotel weds night in case area roads suck in am? Traveling from Sterling so not far...
  10. IMBY ?...traveling from NOVA to standing mtg at Meade at 0700 Weds. dial in always an option vs attend in person but always better to be there.... Conditions legit enough to dial in vs get in car to be there in person early in am? Worked late and not down for -5 hours sleep tonight but will suck it up. Not worried about where I live...looking for an excuse near Meade....sorry if this should be in banter. I really want to sleep in.. Btw...walked the dog an hour ago in potomac falls/Sterling va. Cold rain despite earlier mixing.
  11. Pouring snow in Sterling....roads have caved. Time to walk the dog!
  12. We've had nine racks of ribs on Smoker since 1030 and tapped a fresh keg of Lost Rhino Chasers Fri night. GO PATS!
  13. Deck pic from down the road in Sterling...eyeballing only but looks close to 2"
