    Re: Hurricane Dorian

    The newest models show:
    (GFS) Jax area
    (Euro) West Palm

    Both show a strong N turn, Euro no longer has it crossing the state but turning N and heading straight up the middle of the state.

    Stores already cleaned out of bottled water plus bread and all gas stations had lines yesterday.

    I picked up provisions for Mom and told her I'd bring her over to my place if need be so I could care for her needs. I have a generator here and a window AC unit. Too early to know how it will go but most of us here know the drill.

    Glad I have scaled back in my landscaping business and don't have any new jobs with trees in. Even with bracing and staking they always suffer.

    looks like they are moving the BSU/FSU game because of the storm.
    Architects do it with models.

    We haven't heard back from Dan today so we think he's probably helping board up the business. Our house lies across the fall line and we've had a continuing problem with ground water seeping under the house. We finally decided to install a flume, box and pipe and take the water under and out to the low side. We were thinking maybe a continuation of the rocked existing trench, but it turned into the Grand Canyon, for several reasons. Here's a pic before the aggregated concrete is poured tomorrow. In the middle of this, I found out my grandson was in the hospital in France and missed an important meeting at lunch. Once again, vBulletin turns it on its side. Rotate to get the real pic...

    Looks like that will help, Earle. I have a downspout to work with tomorrow myself here but nothing too complicated. Just have to connect a piece of drain tubing and turn it in the right direction. Got a feeling were going to get some pretty good rains.

    BTW, I just tried to re-upload it [after turning it for you] and got a message the file was too big. Can we increase our limit a little please, Brett? This happens a lot for me and I don't think my pics are that big. Not complaining, mind you - just a humble request. TIA!
