Battening down the hatches!

AdLib2 hours ago

Great conversation!

AdLib2 hours ago

I hear it’s more like a hurricane. That’s not typical for Cal is it?

twilson117

It should be a nasty storm, it’s a Cat 4 hurricane right now around Mexico.

AdLib2 hours ago

Well I learned something and have a lot more to think about and add to my knowledge base.

twilson117

Not at all, this is a freak storm. Which with Climate Change, may not be unusual moving forward.

AdLib2 hours ago

So you expect it to die down

twilson117

2 hours ago

Same here! You got my gears turning.

AdLib2 hours ago

That’s the point of open and honest debate is it not?

twilson117

It’s supposed to decline to a Tropical Storm which is the level below Cat 1 hurricane. Wind gusts could be up to 60 MPH and the amount of rain is supposed to be enormous.

AdLib2 hours ago

Well I heard something about the rainfall will help with the water supply any truth to that?

twilson117

TW – Exactly! When you respect the person you’re talking to, you know you can openly express yourself without concern. That’s a freeing feeling.

AdLib2 hours ago

I agree.

twilson117

Yes, it sill not only help us fill more water supply now that Summer has lowered it but there are fires in the area here and up north, it will help knock those down and help keep the brush moist in the middle of fire season…even though fire season is kind of year round now.

twilson117

I mean 84 years since ANY tropical storm hit LA in any month.

twilson117

4-7 inches of rain predicted, that’s a lot. 1-2 inch is a strong storm.

AdLib2 hours ago

Heh! If part of CA falls into the ocean, I’m sitting on beachfront property!

twilson117

an hour ago

Yes, I’m in LA but not on the coast and not in a flood area so whilt the streets can get flooded, our house is okay.

AdLiban hour ago

Have been to Sacramento many times.

AdLiban hour ago

Haven’t had a big earthquake here for like 30 years.

AdLiban hour ago

twilson117

an hour ago
