    If you would kindly pat it on the behind and send it back where it came from after you greet it, that would be great.

    Would it be rude of me to tell it, thanks, but no thanks.
    I've got my yard just as I want it now and don't need any more 'landscaping' thank you. Just in the last two years I've had several large trees removed. No more.
    If anyone needs to come this way, I do have a nice guest room! Last year I thought that either I'd have to go to bambam's or he'd have to come to me.

    I have two new neighbors who moved hear from parts north who I just got through training not to walk Fido next to the big ponds for safety reasons...."You mean there are alligators in there?" and this evening there was a small sense of panic in them upon hearing the news that Dorian may pack a wallop they have not experienced before.

    Until you've experienced a Cat 3 or better, you're not ready for the wide-spread devastation. Seeing houses and cars swept away or crushed by huge trees (or floodwater up to the second floor) is demoralizing. I'm sure there are worse natural disasters (fire, tornado, earthquake), but hurricanes are bad enough.

    Burgundyís Vineyards Havenít Been This Hot Since the Black Death

    French vintners havenít lived through such a succession of hot weather and dry harvests since at least the time of the Black Death in the 14th century.

    Weather extremes that could now be considered normal for anybody under the age of 30 are unprecedented in historical records going back to when Europe was recovering from the pandemic that eviscerated the population. Thatís the conclusion of researchers who examined temperature, grape harvest and wage data dating back to 1354, according to a study in the European Geosciences Union journal Climate of the Past.

    Unless you dial back the clock another 300 years and put yourself in the middle of the Medieval warm period.

    The real interesting question is what role do such warming periods play in environmentally facilitating bacterial plagues.

    Dorian could become a Cat 4. Keep safe, everyone.
