    Re: Hurricane Dorian

    Question...that's a LOT of debris/garbage, and they're on a barrier island. What will they do with all that?? I remember working in south alabama after katrina and ivan and opal and others that i can't remember the name and there'd be huge dump fields that that was taken to. Timber was piled and burned. I remember one being near the prison at atmore. I'm sure there are still huge debris piles from michael last year. All of the "land" there is used for houses. There is no place to make a "dump". So, what will they do with it all? Barge it into the ocean and dump?

    The eye is directly across from us right now! So surreal to have a beast like that so close.

    Hope everyone else is doing OK.
    Same here. Dorian stayed too far off shore to knock out power. Plenty of rain and wind ongoing, but (knock on wood) not enough to cause any disruption. Lily has no school at least through tomorrow. I'm waiting to hear if I report to work tomorrow. Hopefully no damage to the office.

    Looks like Dorian punched itself out over the Bahamas. And Jesus what a mess has been left!

    Re: Hurricane Dorian

    Just returned from a short walk to the beach. Still windy and some very light rain - not bad. Wind has shifted around to the west. Lot of plant litter all over the place but no major damage that I saw anywhere.

    Like Bodhi said - the Bahamas took a lot out of Dorian and saved us from what could have been a very bad situation.

    These are not huge waves.....unless being described by the media, of course.

    Re: Hurricane Dorian

    The Carolinas got smashed pretty good - especially Emerald Isle, NC.

    Here's an 84 image slide show of Dorian to date:

    Re: Hurricane Dorian

    Back in the office today after we were given the all clear yesterday. Didn't even lose power at the house. So lucky.

    I do like the recent work schedule. Off Saturday - Thursday. Work today. Off Saturday - Monday. Thanks, Dorian!

    Thanks man! Just got back last night from North Carolina. I wasn't a part of the Florida call out as I was in the Midwest working a storm as well, basically left there and went straight to NC!
    I need you out there slinging coconuts and pineapples!

    Ah man...thanks for checking in - and for everything you and your team does. Sorry I got your handle wrong - shorted you 10 volts! No pun intended.

    Fingers crossed we get through the rest of the season without anything as bad as Dorian.

    I guess you won't be sent to the Bahamas?

    Actually you shorted me 10 kilo volts which is 10,000 volts Sorry I had to

    No I generally don't play outside the country, our company is thinking about maybe getting involved but I doubt it. We learned big time from Puerto Rico where there are still outages down there and there was issues with the power company there and some still not getting paid on time so just that event alone will kill a good bit of our out of country chances. Sounds like we might be trying Canada out though so that's good. We actually had some from Ontario in NC but we see them all the time come down this way especially on storms up in the Northeast.

    Some line contractors in the past have went to places like the Virgin Islands to help so it's not uncommon so to speak.

    OK 230KV.....thanks for the reply and info.

    Right now Canada sounds like the better gig anyway so hope it works out.

    Stay safe, brother!
