Are you ready? Got your kits restocked? Got your sandbags filled?

They say that it will be another season like last year.... active... and even now, in the Pacific the first storm of the season, Adrian, churns it's way towards the coast... They say that rainfall may top 20" in the mountains of El Salvador and Guatemala... :shock:

THE FUNDIES WILL BE OUT IN DROVES ON THIS ONE, STRIPEY!

IT'S SURELY THE "ENDTIMES" A-COMIN' TO GIT US!
:lol: (I've always wondered why the fundies were so afraid of death when they are supposed to be "going home" to be with Jesus. :? )

Seriously, my area sometimes gets hurricanes coming up from the Gulf so I will definitely take this warning seriously...er, the one from the weather people, not the FUNDIES!

Adrian attained hurricane status yesterday with sustained winds over 80mph... hitting the mountains of El Salvador and Guatemala will create double the amount of rainfall normally present... flash flooding, washed out roads, mud slides, all are possible...

Got ark? :shock:

I think that was Stripey that asked you the question, ECS, but no matter...if it rains 40 days and 40 nights, I'll just stay on top of my hill, keep the NOAA :!: weather radio on, and have my raft, (my ark), rain gear, and life vest ready...just in case! :P

When it rains for forty days and nights in southern california, the hills turn to mud and seek to level themselves out...

Ever been in a hurricane, ECS?

My husband has relatives in LA, and they're more afraid of the fires than they are of mudslides, although they were involved in one muddy when they lived in Malibu. Came right down beside their house, they said. That's when they moved to Blue Jay...do you know the place, Stripey?

We had bad storms Thursday night. I LOVE a good thunderstorm, and so does my husband. The NOAA awakened us, so we were able to go out onto the back deck and watch the lightening for awhile, before the wind and rain drove us back inside.

Friday morning, I didn't have to pull the water hose all over the yard, watering my flowerbeds and new plantings, which I'd been doing all week.

Never been in a hurricane. Whats it like? Those fires did do some damage. Very nice homes were destroyed and it rained ash for several days.

I've only been in one... Hazel, back in '54... it was windy and rainy... really really windy and really really rainy, other than that, I've lived on the left coast all of my life so I can't tell you anymore than that...

Fire storms aren't nearly the same, though they are as destructive to those directly affected... How about the mudslides? Experience any of them? OR... the quaking earth?

No mudslides. For some reason I enjoy earthquakes. I don't like when people suffer the aftermath, but I don't mind when the earth quakes.

Been in Hurricane Opal, one tornado, and one huge blizzard. OH yes...a couple of earthquakes have rumbled through my area...no damage, but we knew we'd had a quake. Something like a 4 on the Richter scale.

BORREGO SPRINGS – A 4.2-magnitude earthquake shook the eastern reaches of San Diego County today, getting people's attention on a warm evening but causing no reported problems.

The temblor, which hit at 5:39 p.m., was centered nine miles east of Borrego Springs, according to the California Integrated Seismic Network.


The county Sheriff's Department received no reports of injuries or damage stemming from the quake, a dispatcher said.

It was, however, a "pretty good" jolt in Borrego Springs, said Stephen Peters, front desk clerk at Palm Canyon Resort in the desert community.

"It was enough to make our chandelier move," he added.

DULZURA – Fire crews tried to corral a fire that charred 50 acres in a remote south county canyon today, a California Department of Forestry fire captain said.

CDF fire crews were called to Mine Canyon – near Otay Mountain, south of Dulzura – about 11:30 a.m. after a caller reported seeing white smoke in the area, Capt. Dan Pagni said.

When firefighters arrived, they found 20 acres had already been consumed, the captain said.

By 12:30 p.m., another 30 acres had been scorched, but no structures were threatened, CDF Capt. Gary Eidsmoe said. Crews had to contend with rugged terrain, Pagni said.

"It's really isolated," he said.

Two air tankers and a helicopter were dispatched in order to drop buckets of water and fire retardant on the blaze, the captain said.
