Out of the Blue

MrsBlue, H.t.w.d., and I were out on a little drive yesterday when the rains began, which, after starting as a drizzle, picked up steam until we were in a torrential downpour, complete with intense thunder and lighting. This really was quite enough to satisfy our urge to be in an extreme weather situation when the hail began, starting the size of raisins, causing concern it would start chipping paint, before upgrading to the size of marbles, which caused concern that they might actually crack the windshield. We pulled over to wait some of this out, and continuing on after the hail abated, managed to run into a spot of what was probably a combination of drizzle and that stuff that floats off dogwood tree, but couldn't have seemed more like snow. After traversing no fewer than three flooded roads we finally made it home safely, with no signs of plagues of locusts or frogs or anything. Of course in spite of this downpour coming on the heels of a steady month of rainy weather, we're still under a strict drought emergency in this area, which I imagine will only be lifted when it's time for it to be replaced by flash flood warnings.

Anyone else seeing pop up ads from these guys? They come up in a browser window as soon as I log onto my home computer. Can't find an uninstall in control panel.

I can't figure out if its from a site I visit or the wife.

I did a search on my computer and found a bunch of java scripts with their name. Adaware doesn't recognize it as spyware.

I enjoy a good storm. The ones with the high pucker factor like Blue was in I can do without. Glad you survived. What state are you in? Here in North Carolina it has been relatively calm. Normally we have quite a few vicious twister storms. I guess the drought is helping. I'm not sure whether to or about that.

Anyway, back to the boothbabes. Seems there were a lot more fine ones than I originally thought.

On a completely serious note, it's stuff like this that makes me thankful I live in the UK - the worst we have to deal with is rain and a bit of ice occasionally... none of this insane pelting with enormous hailstones, or several feet of snow...

...it's much more fun to read.

Actually, I think the other poster and I were exchanging barbs in a sense, but that makes some genuinely kind words that much more welcome.

Glad you and your family are ok.

Me too! Thanks!

Wow, thanks for that valuable insight, Blue! It's wacky, "out of the blue" anecdotes like that, that make life worth living!

And feedback like that does the same for me -- I guess we've managed to make each other's days!

Had a flashback of that "I wanna be a monkey" song from Ren & Stimpy :-)

I hardly ever even post, how does getting first post once or twice make me a monkey?

Nope, wasn't just you. They just don't make booth babes like they used to... Or maybe E3 is actually about GAMES now. Either way.

Is it just me or were there just not that many fine booth babes this year? Quite a few looked like they were picked up off the street at the last minute so they could earn some crack money.%)

First post!

Love that kinda strange weather, barring tornadoes and hurricanes... Civilization has it's good sides.

Is it just me? But I haven't seen one link pointing to booth babes this year. Mind you I haven't looked very hard, but seems like last year they were all over the place. Anybody know of a "Best of Booth Babes" site?
