  1. Lucked out here inland.. Have power, very little overall damage.. Fifteen mi E the beach got it twice as bad.. GL to ya Skip; hope all goes OK.. Swamp
  2. Hard to believe it's almost 11 hours since you posted the above and it still holds true.. Add the hours she was stalled prior to 9 PM Mon and it becomes downright unbelievable! Must say I'm glad I haven't been in Freeport the last couple of days.. OK -- the way things are right now at almost 8AM Tuesday 20190903 just off of FL I-95 Exit 208 is it's just another day in paradise.. We've had 4 or 5 showers and accompanying breeze associated with Dorian's very outer rain bands since yesterday AM, but other than those it's been pretty much business as usual.. Downright calm even.. This only goes to show how much difference a few miles makes with this hurricane, since approx. 23 miles ESE at the Cocoa Beach Pier it's been fairly steady 20 - 25 mph winds & squally during this same time frame.. But that's all about to change, or so they say, yet again... For all I, or they, know, Cap't Kirk's about to send this entire mess into deep space, widest dispersion.. According to the weather charts I've been able to find online Dorian "should" track pretty much N along FL E coast about 60-80 mi asea.. That would still hit us here with up to Cat 1 conditions.. However, given that 3 days ago Dorian was going to track past west of here up through central FL already downgraded to a Cat 1, and two days ago she was tracking straight up US 1 as a Cat 3, I'll believe what happens here when it finally does.. L8rz y'all, Swamp
  3. Life inside the "Cone Of Uncertainty" one more time.. All the fuel in the world don't mean chit when yer generator is under 7' of salt water Fresh water either for that matter.. Swamp
  4. I was thinkin' stop by yer fave auto window tint shop to snag a piece of scrap film, squeegee it onto a small piece of scrap lexan n mount it onto your grille to see how the film handles what the highway chucks at it pebbles n all.. I've been using their film on my skylights for years.. I can't come anywhere near removing all the trapped air on a bubble-shaped surface without getting into some kinda cutting my legs no longer have the patience for so I'm left with some non-stuck-down edging, which won't be a problem on your surface shape.. Every couple/few years it'll come loose n get blown off during a storm cos of 'em but I'll usually find it all stuck to itself and undamaged up against the fence.. I just wash it off, climb back up there with a bottle of bubbles-B-gone, slap it back on and it's good to go again until the next time.. Good UV properties too.. Just might be worth a test..? Swamp
  5. Wottre you plannin' for the outter Lexan to help cut back the inevitable scratching? [ Ohai -- been a while huh lol ;) ] You remember those 'books' of tear-away mylar sheets they used to make like 50 years ago that snapped onto 3/4 MC helmets in place of a bubble or over top of or in place of shaped 'flat' shields? Were used mainly during early daze MX racing on muddy tracks -- shield got mudded over ya just ripped off the outermost sheet n kept going.. I'm wondering if something like that is feasable? And in this operation you don't even need to stack the sheets; just clean prior to flight until unuseable, then replace anew.. Ermmm -- I am assuming yer gonna be doing something or another out front, right? Swamp
  6. River can handle a pan now too..? Oh geez.. When trucking I-40 through NC, do not get distracted between Marion -- Morganton..! I repeat, do not be lured by Siren's song between Morganton -- Marion..! Swamp
  7. Kewl contest, Terry.. And as much as I'd have liked for you to find more quarters than dimes, I'm gonna go with $49.93.. Thanks.. Swamp
  8. Thanks Strapped.. However, I need to defer to Mike Stang or one of the others about this, since my knowledge re meteorites is somewhere below noob.. It's always been my understanding though to not use water when cleaning meteorites; high grade as-pure-as-possible alcohol is the way to go.. Mike or someone, the reasoning please? Thanks.. Swamp
  9. Yo Strapped, do you have a favorite alcohol you use for cleaning, or...?? Swamp
  10. Thanks for posting photos Tom ^5.. Swamp
  11. If y'all would like to see one type of beach renourishment project taking place as it happens, click: https://www.surfguru.com/ Scroll pointer to cams > Florida > Central Florida then click on either Cocoa Beach Pier or Cocoa Beach Pier North.. Click triangle in middle of vid screen to start the live feed.. Go to outside bottom left and click on get camera control.. A dropdown will appear on outside bottom right.. Go to it and click on Beach North.. It's just coming into view on the Cocoa Beach Pier cam.. If you're on the Cocoa Beach Pier North cam the 'line' or 'hump' you see N-S in the middle of the beach is where they're burying an approx 4' diameter pipe, main purpose of which is to divert runout downward to hinder outflow erosion.. Detecting behind the work area is near impossible -- hot rocks and other false "hit" and chatter-producing anomolies become the rule rather than the exception.. Swamp
  12. I see a Martian, but no meteorite.. Swamp
