I hear you, we were hit with Hurricane Frances, had no electric for 8 days, just got it back and we got hit with Hurricane Jeanne. It took me about six months to put my house back together.

I hate hurricanes, only upside is at least I can see them coming and if they are big enough and mean enough, I leave - with family photos and important documents in hand.

4 more months till hurricane season.

There was a lot of irony in it for sure. Our local ski areas have been hurting for years...(they usually get a little bit and then wait for it to get cold enough so that they can turn on the blower machines)...and when they finally got enough of it, people couldn't get up there...... Big Bear Lake and the Lake Arrowhead and Wrightwood areas are also summer getaway places, but there was a big fire up there a year or so ago and it hasn't been such a pretty outing.... The lakes have been very low....it's depressing.

I went skiing locally (S. CA) in the early years when we first moved down here..(almost 35 years ago).....I compared it to all my years of skiing around Tahoe when I was growing up....it was very disappointing.....

Decent skiing (for people who live in S. CA), is found at Mammoth, but it is a long drive and requries a long weekend or longer in order to benefit from it. (3-day weekends, such as President's weekend, are the pits....it is very, very crowded). The 395 is down to 2 lanes at times and everybody takes it....in the summer, L.A. to Mammoth takes about 5-6 hours each way....in the winter, it can take up to 10 - 12 hours each way.....you're exhausted before you get up there.

The Olympics are going to be around Whistler, right? Boy, that's a pretty area...... It usually gets quite a bit of snow......I'm surprised..... That area of Canada is beautiful.... Vancouver is the prettiest large city that I have ever been in and I've been in quite a few countries.

We've been in our current home for 15 years. The day we moved here, it rained over 3 inches......it was a mess! That winter, we got a ton of rain....at least 30 inches. A few years ago, we got the heaviest rainfall on record---somewhere around 33 inches! Our normal rainfall is less than a foot....

N. California receives more rain than we do.....we rely on their snowpak for water.....(and the CO. River).... But the farmers have had to scale back all through out CA because of the shortage of water..... The drought has been bad..... We now get cited at the house if we water our lawns on certain days....spies from the water company drive around....one warning and then a fine.

The biggest fire in Los Angeles County was just a couple of months ago.....the biggest fire in history......everybody crosses fingers when it rains.....slides, slides, slides....

I have a fetish for umbrellas.....I just love 'em! All sizes.....solids, scenery, instant pop-ups, some that don't blow inside out, tiny ones that fit into a purse, I don't care..... I don't have one of those hairdos that can't get wet either......LOL

I used to have an army green, G.I. Joe raincoat when I was in college......I got it at a surplus store in Sacramento....I didn't want the yellow one, I had to have green! LOL

Good morning all, well the wind finally stopped (for now anyways) so we're off on a road trip to Oatman,AZ. It seems the town has been taken over by wild mules . You're supposed to bring carrots since I guess they're in the habit of being fed by tourists and can get pushy.
We had a weird one yesterday, across the river in Laughlin some old codger ran his car FULL speed into the front and well into the Edgewater casino. Plowed through many gamblers inside and looks like he took out at least two and injured 12. From what I heard while talking to people who saw the whole thing it seems he did it on purpose.
Maybe he wanted change???
They interviewed some ignatz on TV and he was actually shocked that people ran over and started grabbing money,chips and anything else that wasn't nailed down (anymore)...
Kind of like OMG, people were loooting a casino... Hmmm, bad economy, people out of work or under severe pay cuts and money/chips flying all over and they had the NERVE to bend over and pick it up in all the chaos... Imagine that!
I wonder if they realize they were on at least one camera if not many camera's from the "eyes in the sky"?
On the other side I'm sure the casino is well insured for loss and will claim many $$$$$$$ lost no matter what the true figure is.

I agree with you on Vancouver BC as a must see destination. Very European feel to it, so clean and friendly.

Hope he did not have some type of medical emergency.
I am a quarters player only. I once lost 20 at blackjack and never tried again. I just go for the shows

I've always heard, "Don't stop at the first machine inside the door." Now I know why.
