    80th win for the Bravos. Feeling it is destiny... Win one series against the Phils and we're for sure in. Colorado will give us the most trouble in the division series.. LA, I think we can beat, and also AZ. With a revamped playoff starting staff,I think we have a small chance to beat the Cubs or Milwaukee in the NLCS. Any team from the American league, Houston, Boston, Yankees, Oakland, all are favorites against the NL champ.

    I know we are in hurricane mode here but just listened to radio and TV transmissions from 9/11.... Never Forget! Never Forget!

    I think we should refer to the new GFS model as GFS 2: Electric Boogaloo.

    It's funny how The Weather Channel is focusing almost exclusively on Florence when there is a Tropical Storm about to hit Hawaii tomorrow.

    Tropical Storm Olivia is weakening plus Florence is a bigger threat to watch.

    I'm mainly talking about the people hoping for landfalls and stuff like that, I might sound hypocritical because I hope for winter storms but there is a difference between wanting a few inches of snow and a freaking major hurricane to landfall somewhere.

    'down for maintenance'... over at Americanwx... lol Really, during a serious hurricane threat? Sounds more like the site crashed again.

    I said the same thing. Why are they doing "maintenance" during this time? Its still down. It was down for the 0z Euro and 6z GFS run. That sucks.

    Edit: now back up.

    Eh, sometimes emergencies happen. I'm surprised we havent had to do an emergency fix yet... lol

    Their userbase is massive over the entire USA etc. so more problems arise.

    1BEB7E0A-4AB4-4BE3-AA8D-AA3B35303CBD.jpeg Hey guys and gals since I’m now retired and have all this time on my hand I was thinking about purchasing a home weather station. Do you guys have any recommendations . I was thinking around $150 to $200. Something like this

    If you can swing it, I would recommend a Davis. I had a couple of accurite stations that kept on going out. Just my opinion but I think you can get a Davis 6250 for probably $350 or so. I’ve had mine for about 6 years with no problems.https://www.weathershack.com/product/davis-instruments-6250.html

    So, Larry, now you've succeeded in creating a voracious food yearning ... albeit of a different variety ...
    Given this invasion on the cerebrum's taste buds, and it being Friday, you've generated a Northwest Seafood and Publix trip to satisfy a yearning ... lemon boiled shrimp and Alfredo pasta with steamed broccoli and a margarita ...
    Ya done good on this one!

    I'm actually not that big of a fan of Cookout. Outside of their shakes. Maybe it's because I'm spoiled hamburger wise though. My dad prefers to make the thick, juicy patties instead of the typical flat ones.

    And now I'm hungry.

    Gut feeling, when do we FINALLY get the long awaited cool down? Probably about mid-October? November, December...?? NEVER? Could it be we're in Hell and just don't know it yet?
