Be careful out there, sazerac!   It the flooding already looks terrible from the videos I've seen, at least in some areas.   

Alright guys, prayers are coming your way.  Does not look good out there.

Thanks, EVERYBODY !!!

yep we had almost 8" earlier this morning, my street flooded (as it does with any rainstorm)

and pumps were slow but, nothing inside house. I'm 4 or so feet above the sidewalk.

We've dried out pretty well for this bout but, staying on high alert. 

This storm is v. weird already and things will start getting interesting in the coming few days.

I have been doing some power washing of my teak table and chairs in my backyard (whoo - it is hot and humid out there!!) and my hose has developed a few bubbles and it will have to be replaced.....but it is frozen onto the spigot!! I tried wd-40, a wrench....won't budge. Luckily, I have a buddy staying with me and he is going to help me remove the whole darn thing and replace it with a new one.....

Yes! Stay safe at all costs Sazerac!

It's disturbing to see the major storm season starting this early.

spray w/ wd-40 and let it sit for a while,  re-apply for a few applications and let it sit

then tap tap tap with your wrench (not too hard, just tap tap tap tap)

try then.  Sometimes it take a few douses of wd-40.

You might also try hot water or cold water.

It is always something, that's for true.

Sorry to be off topic but ....... Another thing WD-40 is really good at is removing adhesive residue from a surface. A little spray, let sit for a moment then wipe away the sticky adhesive residue.

My friend, Mike, used to spray it on his elbows and knees and said it relieved his arthritis

Get ready for a big rainmaker Saz.  Have a look in your freezer and eat what you can; hurricane cooking you once called it.

I just finished up the leftover Legendary Gumbo from Jazz Fest '19, lol.

Making pork balls (sorry reci).

Plenty of a really awesome red sauce to go through.

A couple of casseroles...a homemade eggplant/zuch Parmesan, a roasted corn pudding.

So, yes my friend, I am living large.

Sipping on lemon, ginger, or hibiscus ice cubes in fizzy water

(with a dollop of Gin).

They will need a fork lift (or a ladle lift) to evacuate me, lol.

WD-40 also works like a charm in getting the headlights on your car clean.  I've found that it works better than any of that stuff they sell at the automotive stores.  And it's cheaper.

Yes - I heard that too about the headlight covers. Haven't tried it myself yet.

LOL - I'd be one of the last one's on the planet to go Vegan.

 

Speaking of Scallops, I just remembered I brought back 4 pounds of those delicious little molluscs from my trip down east in June. Time to thaw out a pound of those little fellers, wrap 'em in bacon with a piece of pineapple then on to the BBQ!
