      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Pussies!

 

We had 26" of rain in 24 hours here on the Redneck RIviera a couple of springs ago. Mobile is the rainiest city in the Lower 48. It doesn't just drizzle for day or weeks on end though. Comes down hard and we get lots of sun too. However we haven't had a drop of rain in all of October and will probably finish the month arid. That goes back to 1847 I think for a record.

 

I may move to the PNW to get away from the rain! Actually it would be to get away from the humidity... not to mention a lot of local stupidity.

 

Do you think Seattle is the rainiest city in the United States? Well, think again.

Mobile, Alabama, actually topped a new list of soggiest cities in the 48 contiguous states, with more than 5 feet of rainfall annually, according to a study conducted by San Francisco-based WeatherBill, Inc. [How Weather Changed History]

The Southeast dominated the most rainy list, while the Pacific Northwest never enters the list until Olympia, Washington pops up at number 24.

HTFU PNW!

You cannot deter me.

I'm there. It's just a matter of time.

 

I like rain. I just need to retire because rain makes me want to read a book, drink tea and take a nap in front of the fire with some Coltrane on my music machine.

It drizzled here the other day for a few minutes and we were on "storm watch"!

Worked as a framer on my days off down there, clouds would roll in and we would be done for the day. Can't build in the rain apparently.

Another reason not to come here! Nothing gets built, we live in mud huts!

There are few things better than a good book by the fire, when it's nasty out. Mind you, I am having to build more bookcases since I retired. But apparently I have the time!

I totally suffer from that disease. I actually have looked at places and talked to realtors in several places. We'd never leave our current place in So Cal.....love it here, but I'd love a second place somewhere very different than here. But......we can't afford a second place AND our boat so there you go. Mrs PB just smiles and humors me through my same analysis each time. "We could rent it out to offset the payments". "Yes dear we could". "Oh heck, the numbers still don't work if we want to travel also". "That's a good point dear". "I guess we'll have to pass". "That's very wise of you dear".

It was weird how I got used to that ... it could start to rain in Alabama, and then just keep raining for three or four days, then it would gradually slow down, make a person think it's all rained out, then start up again for another day.

 

Then finally when it ended, a cloud of mosquitoes the consistency of a cumonimbus would descend within minutes. At one point I got to just leaving the smeared guts of the skeeters on me after I slapped them because it seemed to deter the others a little bit.

 

It's good though. If it wasn't for the rain and skeeters, those areas around Bon Secour would be overrun.

dude, what is your address?

I want to be your neighbor.

You will need a pilothouse sailboat, stainless steel firearms, some surgically implanted webbing in your toes and fingers, eternal optimism that the rain may one day slow to just a drizzle, the ability to wear socks with sandals, and an instinctive need for wool clothing.

Then, welcome to the neighborhood!!

I'm amazed by the amount of little towns all across the east. Many more than out here but we do have quite a few worth visiting. We are limited by big ass mountains!

36" of rain a year is nothing really. It is the number of days that are drizzly that other people complain about. Been here in Hilo area for 3 years almost now, where we get 120" of rain a year. Something about being on the windward side of an Island with couple thousand of rain making ocean to the east. When it rains, you definitely know it. And almost everyone has metal roofs, so you hear it too. I can be outside and hear the rain coming up the road from the ocean beating on all of the roofs.

And it is 80 every day, summer or winter. It is those 34 deg. and raining days with 20 knot winds that really get you.

 

But born and raised in the Seattle area, I miss it. But everyone here in Hawaii is told Seattle is NOT the place to move. But I am surprised at how many move there anyway. Oh well.......

 

Keep up the good work, Mr. Lesser Seattle....

80 is too hot. Low 70's is pushing it. Upper 50's to low 60's is perfect.

It's 68 here today. Pushing it but the Sun isn't that strong at this time of year, so it's OK.

Still, it's muddy and I cannot get my lower field harvested yet without pigging up the ground.

I could live on an island.....almost any island with ocean around it. We considered several when we retired. Mrs PB - as much of a water baby as she is - knows she isn't suited for island living. Too confining for her. So...I'm good. We visit often enough....lots of different ones.
