Well Harvey just nailed(and is still nailing) Texas as a Cat 4. First major hurricane to hit the US since '05 and the first Category 4 since '04.

 From what I've been hearing from sites and chasers, they are saying widespread destruction already and many places are still in the eyewall right now.

After it finally weakens, it will drop 30-60 inches of rain, then possibly move back over the gulf, possibly restrengthen and hit Texas again or LA.

This will go down in the history books.

So does "hit the US" mean that it goes up through the Gulf, or do none of the hurricanes that have torn up the East Coast count because the eyes never officially made landfall?

"Major hurricane" refers to a category 3 or higher, and yeah, an actual "hit" is usually defined as the eye coming ashore.  Obviously even storms whose cores stay out to see can cause a great deal of devastation, and a "weak" hurricane or even a tropical storm is still a serious threat.

Good times.

Getting close to being done with my shop, posts are in the ground, ridge beam and bracing is up and I've put up half of the rafters. I'll get the rafters done today, after which I'll only need to install the 1"x4" cross braces and buy the tin.

What sort of roof covering are you going for?  Felt, tile or slate? :)

Green tin to match our house.

Rafters are up and I managed to get the range hood over our stove installed, vented and wired in today.

Watched Blade Runner 2049 on Saturday. It was amazing. They managed to breathe some new into the world without making an imitation. That's fantastic.

I have experienced a cluster headache.

It's bad.

Have purchased a queen-sized bed for the first time in my life. Small victory but for me, it's nice to not have my feet hanging off the end anymore.

Already doomed, I've told people my sons are weird but my daughter is from another planet. She has the innate ability to just stick to you. What will I do with two of them...

Just saw Ragnarok at IMAX.  Wow...



For me at least Thor just went from one of the weaker of the MCU franchises to vying with Guardians as the funnest.

Those who say "it's better to have lost at love then never to have loved at all" have never lost at love, or else they would know that is utter bull****.
