One storm (Iselle) went by with little overall damage, but another one (Julio) is yet to come. We hope it continues to veer North, away from the Islands.


Saw that on the weather forecast :( hope it does as you say! Will keep my fingers crossed for you all...

My second major trip of the year is over, and I had a great time. The hardest part for me, as always, was the plane ride to and from. Otherwise, I met an old friend (from here) and saw some wonderful museums and sights. But it's good to be back home.

Oh, those poor folks on the Big Island. Two (and a half?) hurricanes in the last few months have blown by, and now a lava flow is threatening homes. I hope things turn out well for them.

That's true: if a finger of lava heads toward your home, you can douse it with water from fire hoses, build berms or trenches or offer a small pig or goat to Pele, but nothing will stop it (though I'm not sure anyone has done that last thing lately).

Well, I did my second (and last) marathon last Sunday. I beat my 2013 time and finished much stronger than last year, but I don't want the jarring to my feet, shins, and knees, nor the fatigue to my thighs that 26.2 miles brings.

Julie, you replied to an old (very old) message in this thread, which confused me, but when I checked it out it sent me down memory lane about a good year skiing. And that reminded me that I've been watching the snow at Tahoe for a few weeks now; it is looking good so far.

Also, I didn't want my post count to end in "13", since my upcoming Reno trip needs as much luck as I can muster.

The skiing was OK at Mt. Rose, while the snow was thin (and slushy in the afternoon). All-in-all though, this was another great Reno/Tahoe Spring trip.

Thanks Julie. I'm trying to travel as much as I can while I'm still fit and mobile.

Sounds like a very good plan Qui-Gon.

The high today in Reykjavik is 48ºF. Sunrise was 3:37 AM, and sunset is 11:14 PM. What a strange place; and it's a place I want to experience!

A backwoods hick and his rude animated monkey slap a blue light on their car and stop some poor guy for driving a Dodge Charger while eating a croissant. In another commercial, a man driving an Audi stops for a pedestrian and slows down coming up on a puddle to avoid splashing two mopes sitting on a bench next to the puddle, but the next car (a Dodge maybe?) splashes the two guys on the bench.

Which car would you be more attracted to?

Just got back from Iceland! What a beautiful, bucolic country. I wish my State would learn from the Icelanders how to harness geothermal energy.
