    I’m going upper 50s or bust! Already 73, very dry air, could pull off a miracle!

    Do you all have pedal taverns in your areas? Nashville has, or had (I haven't seen one in months). Here, they charge $40, plus you have to provide your own drinks/beer. They supply NOTHING!

    Yes, I hate them. There are a lot of restaurants/bars/breweries in my area of town and the "Party Peddler" and "Trolley Pub" are constantly around and holding up traffic. They go roughly 10-15 mph so people either get aggressive/impatient on single lane roads and pass them despite the double yellow line, or they ride the right lane slowing traffic down to a crawl in that lane until there's an opportunity to pass. It's only a matter of time before someone slams into one...I see them out during rush hour on main roads here. It's idiotic.

    This 95 degree heat and DP’s in the 50s is great weather, if you like fires! It’s like the desert SW out hear, but not as dry, cause they atleast have the monsoons now and cool haboobs!

    I just want to give an opinion on here... It is as follows:
    The fewer overnight storms, the better.

    Been following the Thailand cave rescue story heavily past couple of weeks. Amazing story, espeacilly hearing from kids now and divers how it started off and just how close on a couple of occasions they where gonna call off the search. This story will make a great movie soon down the road. Hate they lost the one diver . Came real close several other times to loosing more lives. All due to a flash flood

    Does anyone here have to get up by 3AM to go to work? My schedule changed, so now I start my new schedule in the morning. Rough days ahead, not liking it at all.

    I've had to wake up at 3:50 for work a few times, but it was changed recently, so I don't have to wake up that early anymore at least for now.

    If I'm in trial or have deposition testimony to take early and out-of-town, it's a foregone conclusion ...

    The last several days have been unbelievably difficult for me, I went thru the most traumatic event of my entire life a few days ago and ended up in the hospital w/ IVs in my arm til 3-4am, I'm honestly very lucky to be alive and well right now. My life has completely changed on a dime and I won't be the same person ever again. I've gotten better slowly but surely physically, the mental scars that this event has left on me may never heal. :(

    I'm so sorry that happened, I'm glad you're okay though. Even thought we're just random people on the internet, we care about you :). I hope you fully recover from this.
