No. Classic bar favorite of mine is Milky Way. But recently I am into that abomination that is the Reese bar with reese’s pieces in it.

Yeah Milky Way is the best, used to be Snickers but I have so many fillings in my mouth I don't want to risk breaking any of them. Never tried the Reese cup with the pieces in it yet.

Why are so many people bitterly disappointed by a weakening hurricane?

Simple.  Right or wrong, people want to see what nature can unleash.  Although it has weakened, it's going to be plenty bad.

because this is a community of weather enthusiasts and if everyone always got fair skies we'd dissolve.

Yes. However, people should draw the line between being enthusiastic for weather and inadvertently cheerleading for life-taking weather events.

Probably Autism. Mostly. Speaking as someone who can't help but be a little disappointed, and wishes I wasn't, but is drawn to extreme weather like a fly to a light.

I have been an avid follower of AWX since 2005.  Now I know why! On the spectrum.

I always love the hypocrisy of people who have a problem with people following hurricanes when they root on blizzards to bury their location. One of the greatest moments of hypocrisy in weather.

Did I say I had a problem with people following hurricanes? Nope. I said that I was wondering why people are disappointed by a Category 4 turning into a Category 2.

Good luck.  It's a long duration awful hit, you may want to reconsider staying.  There's still time to leave.

I’m the DOS at the hotel.  We have a lot of moving parts with power crews, news teams and emergency responders in house.  We need to have staff here so the hotel can remain open for them to get their jobs done.  The hotel will be fine. It’s my home I’m worried about.  Not in a flood zone but this could be unprecedented.

Peanut butter M&Ms are pretty awesome.

My girl friend just left and is coming to stay here, her grandparents are staying in wilmington, one of which is on an oxygen tank and has no generator. They refuse to leave, personally I am very fearful for their lives.

Yeah that’s not a great situation.  What part of Wilmington are they if you don’t mind me asking?  Maybe someone could check on them tomorrow if the opportunity arises?

Agreed, easily the best M&M out there.

I wasn't a big fan of Mr. Perfect back in that day of the WWF.

 

I'm feeling better now.

One of the better workers back in the day, underutilized to be honest. His back injury in 91 derailed what would have been a better run.
