I’ve been up all night watching hurricane news because I’m concerned about Charleston and flooding and my friends there and on Hilton Head. One of my favorite commenter’s husband writes for Island Packet and put up a great story about her before the storm hit them.
My wife has a new man in her life. His name is Mike. She met him on the internet. Mike even has his own Facebook page, with 104,000 likes. It’s called Mike’s Weather Page. Mike’s a lot like me. She never sees him. He spends most of his time noodling on the computer. And in his one-way conversations, he rambles aimlessly, like the “spaghetti models” of Hurricane Matthew he’s dissecting for the world. My beautiful bride thinks Mike really understands her feelings. She wants truth in hurricane hysteria. “That television is a science fiction movie,” she said, not looking up from her laptop, shushing me so she didn’t miss a muttering word from HIM. [SOURCE]
The article is a must read. They are getting hit pretty hard on Hilton Head as I type this. I’m sending prayers for safety their way. One of the last things she said to me was “I hope we still have a home when this is over.”
Banjo is worried about his virtual dog friends.
In other news, I am loathe to open the political door here. If you have a functioning brain and follow me on Twitter you know I hate Trump and Hillary. But with this latest bullshit, I feel like I can’t lasso either side and keep politics off the site when I feel like the country is boiling over. So have at it. In my opinion, we are fucked either way.
So it’s an open forum… but be careful what you say. Not because I will send you to WLS but because we all have different views on politics here…
And Daily Tea is ALWAYS an open forum so whatever is going on with you is fine to vent about here to! Don’t feel like the hurricane is the only thing. This is our spot to vent for the week about whatever.
