The Weather Down Here...


We've had non-stop rain for 2 days, not cold enough for snow, just cold enough to make it freakin' miserable. With wind gusts up to 85mph overnight and pouring down rain...makes for really sucky weather.

I live out in the sticks, so to speak and the county hasn't done any maintenance on the road I live on since I moved out there 6 years ago.

Now during monsoon season, usually July- August we get alot of rain, but I have never seen the accumulation of water like I have over the last couple of days. There's mini lakes where there normally isn't even a puddle. in fact our usual lake sized water holes in the road are even more massive than usual. I almost didn't make it out to work this morning...that with a 4-wheel drive pickup truck.... Yeah...

So last night the county just west of us, Pima county had a Tornado warning going on...highly unusual here.

And to top it off, looks like we may have the snow line drop to between 3,000 to 4,000 ft. this afternoon. So our snow day will actually be on my day off...grrrrr. A guy can't catch a break.

So, luckily my roof is still intact and looks like we're gonna get snow today sometime.

Maybe I'll be able to have a snowman in my front yard when I get home today...hehehe.

Well, I hope anyways, it would be nice to have some positive aspect to this crappy weather.

Mjolnir out.

Do as I Say, Not as I do....

Anti-Gun Senator Shoots Intruder

Long time Anti-Gun Advocate State Senator R.C. Soles, 74, shot one of two intruders at his home just outside Tabor City, N.C. About 5 p.m. Sunday, the prosecutor for the politician's home county said.

The victim, Kyle Blackburn, was taken to a South Carolina hospital, but the injuries were not reported to be life-threatening, according to Rex Gore, district attorney for Columbus, Bladen andBrunswick counties..

The State Bureau of Investigation and Columbus County Sheriff's Department are investigating the shooting, Gore said. Soles, who was not arrested,declined to discuss the incident Sunday evening.

"I am not in a position to talk to you," Soles said by telephone. "I'm right in the middle of an investigation."

The Senator, who has made a career of being against gun ownership for the general public, didn't hesitate to defend himself with his own gun when he believed he was in immediate danger and he was the victim.

In typical hypocritical liberal fashion, the "Do As I Say And Not As I Do" Anti-Gun Activist Lawmaker picked up his gun and took action in what apparently was a self-defense shooting. Why hypocritical you may ask? It is because his long legislative record shows that the actions that he took to protect his family, his own response to a dangerous life threatening situation, are actions that he feels ordinary citizens should not have if they were faced with an identical situation.

It has prompted some to ask if the Senator believes his life and personal safety is more valuable than yours or mine.
But, this is to be expected from those who believe they can run our lives, raise our kids, and protect our families better than we can.

So, the honorable Sen. Soles can defend his home...but us knuckledragging rednecks i.e. the unwashed masses aren't responsible enough to...

Yet Another Miscarriage of Justice...

I would say this story is unfuckingbelievable, but in light of the recent prosecution of our Navy Seals...I guess I shouldn't be surprised...

H/T: Pat Dollard for pointing me to this story
