    I guess you can call it random rambling. Lol
    Hermine is making landfall around tallahassee tonight. Thank God I have only 3 chickens and they can easily be brought in when **** hits the fan tonight. I am kind of scared, I don't like tornados, and I sure don't like hurricanes!!!

  3. When I was a boy in Norfolk VA me and my mom would ride our bikes and Rollerblade in the hurricane rains lol. It was a lot of fun, we never worried about a thing but we did live on base and knew we would be taken care of . Have fun and good luck ^_^

    That beastly thing is forecast to be in my neck of the woods in about 24 hours - I feel for you. Stay dry, stay safe!

    Supposed to arrive here in about 4 hrs. Chickens are dry and safe. It's raining and raining...and raining. Let's hope we'll be fine. Have two large dead trees in the backyard that are prone to break and do damage. Dear landlord decided he wanted to leave them standing, in case they're coming back...lol
    These trees are deader than dead. We'll be fine, I hope!

    In my experience dead trees stay dead. Landlord just doesn't want the bother or expense. Hope they won't give you more to worry about during the storm.

  9. Dead trees aren't entirely useless, they are the only habitat for a lot of small animals.... I don't cut my dead trees down until they have been dead for years and small pieces are starting to fall off

    Sure...those trees have been dead for a few years. I don't mind them. I mind the arm think branches that fall onto my tomato plants, I also mind the possible projectiles these heavy branches can turn into. It's all good. I called the electric company, they'll come and remove all branches, since they are all tangled around the power lines.
