I'm great. Bought a case of whiskey, gonna take my buddy's pontoon out on Lake Murray and go on a bender for the next 5 days...or at least until the liquor runs out...

This just in from WLTX News19: Skippy, the Weather Guy:

And I quote: We are in a general state of dampness.

You can't make this stuff up.


I'm good folks - those 80 MPH gusts downgraded to 40mph with a bit of rain. We are about 100 miles inland, and doing okay. Thank you all for the well wishes.

Of course, I'm stuck in the house with my wife, which will no doubt leave both of us traumatized... ;)

I guess now we know why you got a whole case of whiskey.

Hurricanes are caused by climate change? Seriously?

Caused? No. But making them increasingly more intense and damaging? Absolutely.

Therefore, we conclude that despite statistical correlations between SST and Atlantic hurricane activity in recent decades, it is premature to conclude that human activity–and particularly greenhouse warming–has already caused a detectable change in Atlantic hurricane activity.

I must interject at this junction of the scientific discussion. It is entirely my fault. We put our car in the garage recently and had the spark plugs changed, they were worn. New ignition wires were installed as were air cleaners and transmission oil and filter. All these changes improved the carbon butt print and now global warming will be a thing of the past so no one need be concerned anymore. Rest easy.

I would consider global cooling though, we went through that back in the 1970's and there were entire hour-long network info-propaganda shows (just like today) that asked the question: Will we freeze in the DARK?

Better buy your fleece, long johns, and gore-tex, down parkas while supplies are plentiful. History repeats so I hear.
So I got that going for me...which is nice. It's a cross between Kentucky Bluegrass, Featherbed Bent and Northern California Sensimilla so you can play 36 holes on it,take it home at night and get stoned to the begesses belt
