Please don't ban him over that post. I thought it was hilarious....in a very snide way.

So far, so good. I'm well outside the evacuation (let alone burn) zones. When I went out to do some errands, there were spots of ash on the car, though. Mostly I've been posting about this because one generally lacks a sense of how close one specific locale is to another when one is a long way from either.
This. Sailing close to the wind over a considerable time. Straw, camel, back, etc.rpdom wrote: ↑Thu Oct 12, 2017 5:23 pmIt wouldn't just be over that post, I suspect.W. H. Heydt wrote: ↑Thu Oct 12, 2017 4:35 pmPlease don't ban him over that post. I thought it was hilarious....in a very snide way.
Perhaps you should give the "new Joe Schmoe" the exact same treatment as the old Joe Schmoe (since it's bloody obvious that Frezman is Schmoe).jamesh wrote: ↑Fri Oct 13, 2017 8:35 amThis. Sailing close to the wind over a considerable time. Straw, camel, back, etc.
Hmm, hadn't made that connection. Must try harder. Anyway, same treatment has been applied.DougieLawson wrote: ↑Fri Oct 13, 2017 10:13 amPerhaps you should give the "new Joe Schmoe" the exact same treatment as the old Joe Schmoe (since it's bloody obvious that Frezman is Schmoe).
Meanwhile we can all continue to hope that California can get their fires under control and they continue to stay a long way from Hal Heydt.
I've been thinking it for a while and mentioned it to someone recently, especially after MF made a reference to an old JS post praising his style.
In recent years, the geologists determined that one of the faults in the North Bay is actually an extension of one of the ones farther south. Since the maximum magnitude a fault can generate is related to its length....you can see where that goes. Prior to 1906, the "Great California Earthquake" was the 1868 one on the Hayward Fault, estimated at M6.8. Last time I saw estimates, the East Bay is expected to get something in the M7 range at a 50% probability in the next 30 years. My "first born" will be safe from that. He's living in New York City.
The sky here was actually blue this afternoon, for the first time this week. So at least locally to me, the air quality has improved quite a bit. I just checked on Weather Underground. They give an AQI of 40 ("Good") with Ozone as the major pollutant. The forecast is for it to be "Unhealthy for sensitive groups", dominated by PM2.5 (2.5 micrometer particulate), on Monday. For San Francisco (the airport is several miles south of the city), now it's 33 (Good, PM2.5), Monday is "Unhealthy for sensitive groups (PM2.5)" Given what we've been having, you shouldn't have a problem unless you've got a serious asthma condition.
Indeed. He never said where he was. The latest hurricane, Ophelia, is headed for Ireland and then Scotland and northern England. (Good news....not expected to repeat the Great Storm of 1987.) FYI...Ophelia has set a record for the farthest east location of an Atlantic hurricane. It was Category 3 earlier today.On a related note, I hope rpiboy is safe (no post since latest wave of hurricanes, but if he's in Puerto Rico that could be due to lack of power).
