Dodged Another Bullet!
« on: August 06, 2008, 04:40:14 PM »
Well, We just dodged another bullet... 



Sorry no picture, But I had to bring everything inside (no need to see a garage filled with lawn furniture LOL) 

Kept watching the news all night... Storm due in the morning!!!



We were prepared, Just bought groceries, Generator is always ready....  Just hope it doesn't turn into an instant hurricane right before landfall!



Our hose is located just right where the letter 'E' in the word Humble...  The orange area shows the highest winds where the eye of the storm is, It passed right over us. No damage thank goodness, but we got the rain we needed!!




We were lucky this time... It just gave us a few hours of steady heavy rain  and some gusty wind. 

We still have the rest of August - November to keep an eye out.   Now I just have to put everything back outside..... I'll wait till Saturday LOL, I'm tired  :P

I suggest you to come in Belgium by example... except a lot of rain, no weather problem at all  :wink:

Phew, close one Barry.
Fingers crossed here also, best of luck though the rest of this season.
No more storms, dodging bullets should be done in a shmup after all.

did i just sence a little sarcasm here ?

no seriously, we (if i may speak for the regular members here) are concerned about fellow arcade lovers that come together here on this board, so yes it is usefull information to listen that one of our members (in this case barry) is ok, and he is doing fine.

and ofcourse all other people that live in that area

If you don't like the info , don't read it, or better don't reply on it

Yes i do, i know it could be a bot, especcially because there is a link to some vendor,

IT is a very big world, anyway, the board could be compromissed even with the "not so easy" registration. (Captcha, comfirmation emails, and all other verification methods that i forget)

but imagine it was a real person, i just like to let barry know that we take this serious and that we do care.

I like to give a little pinch left or right now and then..... no bad intentions about it (see the ;) )

Glad you can take it  ;D ;D (and feel free to pinch back in a sharp and fun way whenever appropriate).
