On CNN it was reported that a neighbor complained that he (Odessa shooter) had threatened to shoot her over putting trash in a dumpster (no more details on that) and that he was shooting into his backyard from his roof. She reported this to the police, but they failed to show up, claiming they didn’t have the location on GPS.

8pm EDT conditions:

LOCATION…26.6N 77.6W
ABOUT 75 MI…120 KM E OF FREEPORT GRAND BAHAMA ISLAND
ABOUT 155 MI…250 KM E OF WEST PALM BEACH FLORIDA
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS…185 MPH…295 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT…W OR 270 DEGREES AT 5 MPH…7 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE…915 MB…27.02 INCHES

The damage across the Bahamas will be catastrophic and the potential for loss of life is exceptionally high given storm surge across the low lying islands that make up the country archipelago. I’d sooner count on Jose Andres to provide relief to those suffering there than await Trump and his response.

As it is, Trump gutted FEMA funding, doesn’t have permanent appointees for DHS or FEMA, and Trump himself is a know nothing who spews nonsensical ravings at every opportunity when he’s not on the golf course.

For Trump, everything is about himself and what this storm does to him and his businesses. If he’s not affected, he just doesn’t care. He’s a sociopath. It’s who he has always been.

lawhawk  Sep 1, 2019 • 7:07:26pm

So, what caused the storm to bomb out and turn into a cat 5 monster? Short answer:

High water temps. Higher water temps give storms more energy.

If Dorian stays over the same area, it churns up colder water, which can weaken it some. Of course, that’s exactly what happened in the Bahamas since the storm is sitting pretty much over the country for nearly 24 hours.

It’s inching closer to the US, and any wobble in the track can take it onshore - a cat 4/5 landfall. Models expect it to remain cat 5 overnight.

Southeastern US remains under state of emergency because of potential catastrophic damage from storm surge and prolonged duration.

Stay safe SE Coast lizards…

They have to bring equipment forty miles to my house, get permits from the electric company and telephone company (since the dead portion hangs over the wiring for both), &c.

As for the wood, it’s being left here (they aren’t going to haul it away). As for selling it, I’ll probably just let my neighbours with fireplaces come and take what they want. (Folks around here do that; we constantly have fresh chicken eggs from a person in town who gives them to us, the occasional Canada goose from hunters, &c).

American Elm? If so, not so many left.

I wonder if any researchers would be interested in seeds or samples for cloning.

Family story:
My father, back in the depression, got a job topping American Elm trees. This involved climbing to the top of the tree and cutting off the growing tip. The theory at the time was that topping them would save them from dying from Dutch Elm Tree Disease.

That theory did not work out. And American Elm trees are now far less common.

After my father fell 75’ through a tree and somehow landed unhurt at the base of one tree, he decided that the job was not for him. That was one of a number of jobs he tried before he finally settled on what he wanted to do. He went on to get his PhD and become a professor instead.

She originally spoke to a person here in town, and he came and looked at our elm tree. He said he couldn’t do the job, and recommended the man in Bayard because he has a degree in arboriculture. He noted if there was any person in this part of the state who could save our tree, it would be him.

Wow, 75’ fall and unhurt. That would convince me the job wasn’t for me either.

I’m not sure what variety of elm it is. Looking at Wikipedia, the picture of an American Elm is pretty similar to our tree (except ours is actually two trees grown together, and the dying part is one of the trees).

I imagine our tree was spared from Dutch Elm disease because there are no trees at all outside of town, and as far as I can tell no other elm trees in town.

The storm has moved almost entirely off the south coast of Grand Bahama, according to the Bahamas Met Office. The eye is also getting smaller in the latter radar scans, and the northern part of the eyewall is raking the northern coastline of the island.

The western eyewall is still several hours away from Freeport at the current speed.

When Katrina got into the eastern Gulf of Mexico and blew up to a Cat 5 storm, it got really, really big. It was was carrying a huge amount of water at its periphery. By the time time it hit the Mississippi Delta, it was going through an eye replacement cycle and was down to a Cat 4. By the time it got to NO, it had Cat 3 winds, but the inertia of the previous strength of the storm meant that it still had a Cat 5 storm surge, around 20’ of water.

That was what devestated the Mississippi and Louisiana coasts and inundated New Orleans.

I was on a strike team two days after landfall. We got into the city through Airport Highway, from the west on a natural levee and blew right through town and crossed the bridge into the lower Mississippi delta no probs, once we got past the cops. (Don’t ask.) We got to Buras and there were two shrimp boats on the roof of the high school. We got to Sulphur and there was almost nothing left except for the remains of the hot water extraction factory that recovered elemental sulphur from the salt dome immediately under the town. We couldn’t get much farther south because there was too much crap on the road. Everything was covered with crude.

This storm is a monster. Normally, a hurricane above a Cat 3 goes through an eyewall replacement cycle every eighteen hours or so. You will note that the NHC is gobsmacked (quietly) that Dorian hasn’t done so. We may be seeing a new type of hurricane, powered by global warming, which will break new ground.

People who live in the warned areas of Hurricane Dorian (and the tropical storm warned areas around Gainesville and Ocala) should designate someone outside the warned area to be the contact point for information from family and friends. That prevents people from overwhelming those with phone calls trying to leave, and prevents overwhelming the cell phone and landline networks in the areas about to be stricken.

My wife explained to me why she hired the tree surgeon from Bayard.

She originally spoke to a person here in town, and he came and looked at our elm tree. He said he couldn’t do the job, and recommended the man in Bayard because he has a degree in arboriculture. He noted if there was any person in this part of the state who could save our tree, it would be him.

I suspect that you are correct, that if your elm is an American, that it survived by being isolated.

After the discussion on the lack of genetic diversity in the Passenger Pigeon, I was wondering if the world would benefit by the diversity offered by your elm.

But it sounds like you and your lady may have already addressed that issue.

When the aboriculturlist/tree surgeon returns to help us with our elm tree, we’re going to ask him to identify the specific species.

If it is in fact an American elm, we will contact the scientific organisations trying to identify elm varieties which are resistant to Dutch Elm disease and see if they are interested in either coming out to investigate our tree, or get a shipment of a huge box of seeds next Spring.

It could be like the elm trees in Central Park; spared because it is miles from any other elm tree. (Central Park’s elm trees are protected by miles of city in every direction.)

I was working as a contractor at FEMA during that period.

Under Clinton FEMA had been a cabinet level agency. The philosophy of the incoming Bush administration appeared to be that emergency management was not the role of the Federal government.

Under Bush, funds were cut and there was an attempt to dismember the agency. Parts were defunded and and the rest was supposed to be farmed out to other agencies. Needless to say, just about anybody who could get out, did. The survivors were kind of demoralized. And then the former commissioner of the International Arabian Horse Association was installed as its head.

The folks who were still there at the time of Katrina were working very hard, but were inexperienced, poorly led and badly supported by the administration.

After the hurricane, most of the regular FEMA staff did months-long tours of Louisiana in fairly primitive conditions. I heard quite a few stories of them getting death threats and being shot at.

Fortunately no one I knew of was actually shot. I suspect that the poor hurricane survivors desperately needed the help and while they registered their outrage, they did not want to drive away the assistance.

But whatever it takes, First Monday in September guarantees a long weekend much better than May 1st, which has a 5 in 7 chance of falling in the middle of the week or on a weekend…(Germany do not move holidays to accommodate)

IIRC, May 1 was the workers’ labor day here, too until Grover Cleveland established the Sept. state-sanctioned version to siphon energy from the growing union and workers movements at the time.

I recall that it had something to do with the Haymarket Riots in Chicago.

And yes, we did not want that pesky labor movement to start interfering with individuals’ rights to bargain on equal terms with large corporations. Back then it was portrayed as the plucky individual owner being assailed by a mob and needing protection in the form of police and Pinkertons.

The AR in AR-15 really does stand for ARmalite Rifle, just as it does in the designation of my Henry “US Survival” AR-7. The latter is a .22 LR breakdown rifle that was designed for aircrews to carry with their emergency gear. It was also an Armalite product and in fact was also designed by Eugene Stoner but it’s not an assault weapon by any stretch of the imagination.
The fact remains though that Stoner and Armalite never intended the AR-15 to be anything but a military weapon, based on the assault rifle principles established earlier by the Stg-44 and the AK-47. Another widely prevalent myth is that “AR-15” refers to the semi-auto civilian version while select-fire military versions are M-16s. In fact AR-15 is a commercial designation, originally a trademark, while M-16 is a military designation applied to the AR-15 when it was standardized for military issue in 1965. Before that, the US and several other countries had purchased thousands of select fire AR-15s on commercial contracts. IIRC, it was first taken into action by the British SAS in Borneo in 1962. My father had a select-fire AR-15 while he was in Vietnam in 1964. Robin Moore’s novel The Green Berets, written in 1964 and set in the spring of that year, mentions the AR-15 pretty extensively, describing its effects in graphic, and wholly accurate, terms. Finally, the rifle I used in basic training in 1970 was stamped “AR-15.” It was otherwise identical to the M-16s the rest of the company had. The armorer explained that it was just one of the ones purchased before the adoption of the M-16 designation and that he had seen quite a few of them over the years.

To summarize, “AR-15” does not stand for “assault rifle” but it damn well is an assault rifle by any relevant definition and by the intent of the designer.

re: #125 Anymouse 🌹🎃

Posted five hours ago to my regional newspaper:

Nebraska and Iowa officials cheer possibility of trade deal with Japan (Goes to the Scottsbluff, Nebr. Star-Herald, more at the link).

That’s because said officials are fools to believe anything Trump says about great trade deals.

Weasel word: Possible.

No, it’s not possible. My newspaper’s pro-Trump conservative lean continues to gaslight residents of the Nebraska Panhandle and SE Wyoming.

The only reason I subscribe to it at all is local news coverage. For that, I’m considering dropping my subscription and only retaining my print subscription to my county newspaper, which doesn’t deal much with political news other than the op-ed page.

re: #103 ckkatz

I was working as a contractor at FEMA during that period.

Under Clinton FEMA had been a cabinet level agency. The philosophy of the incoming Bush administration appeared to be that emergency management was not the role of the Federal government.

Under Bush, funds were cut and there was an attempt to dismember the agency. Parts were defunded and and the rest was supposed to be farmed out to other agencies. Needless to say, just about anybody who could get out, did. The survivors were kind of demoralized. And then the former commissioner of the International Arabian Horse Association was installed as its head. …

By the way, Michael “Heckuva Job Brownie” Brown is reportedly running an AM radio show in Denver these days.

Speaking as a long-time Arabian Horse breeder, he wasn’t any good at running IAHA, either. Got dumped, IIRC.

You know those stories about people who were obviously sick, but refused to go see a doc until they had to be wheeled into an ER? That’s the situation here, these folks would rather deal with the symptoms rather than cure the disease because the symptoms are sold as “cheap” and don’t involve them giving up anything more than a little more when the tax bill comes. Which is why, when the planet metaphorically crashes and bleeds out, they’re going to be the hysterical relative demanding to know why this wasn’t caught earlier and “something” done.

I have a friend who lives in Savannah, GA and she’s really sweating this out. She broke both of her legs in a fall down a set of stairs in early July, so she’s barely hobbling around. She’s already in a great deal of pain from the breaks healing, experiencing a lot of stress from not working, and her narcissistic mother is giving her a lot of grief about not leaving with her. Her latest plan is that if her downstairs neighbor leaves, she’ll go with the neighbor, take a very few things and her ferrets. She just wishes Dorian would move.

We generally have no idea whose lives we have affected, - for the good or not. Sometimes when we find out, that can be satisfying and even laudable.

The goal of a good life should be to become an exemplary human instance through excellent behavior and action.

To do as much justice to the miraculous gift of your individual existence as you are able, and to be able to rejoice in that alone.

To affect others as a goal, to ‘leave a mark’ on the world, is a form of badge collecting and misses the entire point of being alive.

If your goal is to make future generations remember you solely because of it, I can agree. OTOH, making a mark on others is generally called mentorship. One of MLK’s legacies is teaching blacks to no longer be afraid of what white do to them. It was the big change he brought to the Civil Rights movement, more than his speeches.

A Trump supporter on my timeline shared a post lamenting that they’re aren’t any newscasters like Walter Cronkite anymore, who just reported the news and let the viewer make up their mind.

I pointed out that this is kind of disingenuous, in that one of his most famous on-air moments was criticizing US involvement in Vietnam, and heavily influencing public opinion against it.

She went full snowflake, offering to take down the page since she didn’t want to offend anyone. I asked who was being offended, and then wondered out loud how many of the original commenters bemoaning the lack of a Cronkite broadcasters were Fox News diehards. I described that scenario as entertaining and pure comedy.

Guess what FB post doesn’t exist anymore.

At 3:15 a.m., the U.S. Coast Guard and Ventura County Fire Department crews rushed to a mayday call that the “Conception,” a 75-foot-long charter dive boat carrying 39 people, was ablaze 20 yards off Platts Harbor on the north side of Santa Cruz Island, which is located about 30 miles west of the city of Ventura.

All five crew members aboard were rescued by a passing good Samaritan boat called the “Grape Escape,” while 34 passengers remain unaccounted for. The crew members jumped off the burning boat, Coast Guard Capt. Monica Rochester told reporters at a news briefing from Channel Islands Harbor.

“The crew was actually already awake and on the bridge and they jumped off,” Rochester said.

The passengers were all below deck at the time.

“The report I received is they (the passengers) were below deck asleep,” Rochester said.

re: #338 Anymouse 🌹🎃

The outer bands of Dorian are over South Florida. A severe thunderstorm warning has been posted around Naples and off-shore waters in the Gulf of Mexico.

radar.weather.gov (Miami radar)

bands hitting about once an hour and about one special weather statement per hour

the latest:

At 402 PM EDT, a band of showers and thunderstorms were located
along a line extending from Fort Lauderdale to 8 miles west of
Loxahatchee NWR to 9 miles south of Indiantown. Movement was south
at 45 mph.

Wind gusts up to 50 mph are possible with this band.

the storms are being reported from much further away than usual because they’re moving at 45-50 miles per hour towards us (the whip effect)

most warnings come at like 20-30 miles. indiantown is about 60 miles as the crow flies. storm moves

still, i cant be glad enough that everything is happening north and east of us

The mall across the street from the hotel: CLOSED
Shoppers Drug Mart: CLOSED
Downtown restaurant where I tried to book a table: CLOSED
Family restaurant where we wanted to go to lunch: CLOSED

But it’s OK I did make reservations at another restaurant, the one Z wanted to go to, and we found another place for lunch.

Making a major announcement at the Pentagon on Thursday, Vice-President Mike Pence said that the proposed United States Space Force was necessary to defend the U.S. from gay aliens.

“I stand before you today to say that this country is under attack from outer-space gays,” Pence told the military gathering. “Only Space Force can protect us from their unimaginable evil.”

Pence detailed a nightmare scenario in which “gay aliens by the thousands” land in the U.S. in “seemingly cute spacecraft” and “subvert life in America as we know it.”

Nebraska Corn Growers Issue Rare Rebuke of Trump (Lincoln, Nebr. Journal-Star)

The Nebraska Corn Board and the Nebraska Corn Growers Association issued a joint statement criticizing the Trump administration for continuing to issue oil refinery waivers that thwart ethanol production and for a trade policy that they said has damaged agriculture.

(more)

And we know the answer to this: Quit voting for conservatives. The only thing they care about regarding small or family farms is how to bankrupt them so they can be bought by agribusinesses.

So will having E15 on the market year round benefit Nebraska farmers and the economy? Maybe only slightly, and definitely not immediately.

Less than 70 stations in Nebraska carry E15, and it isn’t sold at all in 20 states - although availability is growing quickly.

But many hope the small change making E15 more accessible will make Americans more aware of their options.

Most states don’t sell E-15 gas. Only a few stations in Nebraska do.

The article at Nebraska Educational Television (text article) includes an interview from the owners of the ethanol plant in our county seat, along with photographs of the process to create ethanol from corn.

netnebraska.org

E-15 is not sold in the summer because of pollution concerns, thus permitting it does further damage to the ecology.

There’s a new Alaska state record for giant pumpkins

Marshall said he thought weather was a big factor this year. “With all the sunny days I got plenty of heat in the greenhouse. The pumpkin is 89 days old. Nothing happens the first days. In 79 days, it grew to 2,051 pounds. That’s an average of 25 pounds per day. It grew 50 pounds a day in parts of July. Marshall said growing the pumpkin required at least 75 gallons of water a day, and as much as a couple hundred gallons a day.

They’re engaging reads, and the books get progressively more difficult as you move into the series (being age appropriate as the subject matter gets progressively darker too).

The movies have nothing on the books, and the movies are pretty good (and the casting was pretty spot on).

Unbelievable:

The forward super-structure, two decks high, was completely gone, with very heavy damage to the hull just below it. This does look like a massive explosion forward. One guess is that a small fuel fire broke out in the engine room aft and the crew was back there trying to put it out. Fuel leaked forward, ignited, and and breached an oxygen or air tank, setting off a chain reaction explosion in the rest of the air tanks forward where the passengers were. They will have expert divers combing every foot of the wreck for remains but I don’t think there will be much to recover.
I can’t think of anything worse for a captain than to lose ALL of his passengers while he survives.

Prime Minister: This Is the Worst Day of My Life (goes to the Nassau, Bahamas Guardian)

As Abaco continued to be pounded by Hurricane Dorian, a catastrophic category 5 storm, Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis cried as he described today as the “worst day of his life” and expressed hope that those who refused to evacuate will survive the storm.

“This is probably the most sad and worst day of my life to address the Bahamian people,” he said during a press conference at the headquarters of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

“As a physician I’ve been trained to withstand many things, but never anything like this.

“We’re facing a hurricane… one that we’ve never seen in the history of The Bahamas, with wind velocity as high as 180 mph, with gusts in excess of 200 mph.”

He noted that Bahamian homes are built to withstand winds of up to 150 mph.

“So this will put us through a test that we’ve never confronted before,” he continued, adding that storm surges are projected to be as high as 20 feet.
