    This guy SlyPokerDog keeps track of EVERYTHING. Even the weather. What a great Mayor he would be. Siri and Cortana call HIM for answers.

    As someone who experiences the Santa ana winds often and have seen what they can bring, take this seriously.

    Although it's unrelated (to a degree), this is why I've been an advocate of burying the power lines for years now. One less factor to deal with.

    It was 99 here in northern WY this weekend and we have rain/snow mix today. We rode the quads a little way up the mountain to about 6000 ft. this morning and it’s straight snow up there.

    lol, lots of people in the valley (including my coworker) have lost power for 24 hours (and still going). Its like 115+ out that way. LA is having rolling blackouts. People are getting fucked in the hottest recorded days in LA History.

    Gotta love that renewable energy!

    Probably a good idea to move any potential flying objects to a garage etc. Outdoor furniture, hanging plants, umbrella canopies etc.

    Unless you have some crap you want to get rid of...

    Be safe.
