  1. If it goes up for sale, I'll let you know how much. We all know you have that kind of cheddar.
  2. The last Douglas DC-7 in commercial use is Erickson Aero's tanker number 60. Sadly, N838D has now flown her last mission and has been retired from use. My hope is that a museum will be able to purchase this aircraft because if that does not happen, she may end up in a scrap yard. www.businessinsider.com/final-flight-of-62-year-old-fire-bomber-plane-2020-10

    Friday

    Good morning. Overcast skies, 51F, and 92% humidity and 50 minutes to sunrise. Yesterday, hurricane Zeta brought rain and a little wind, but nothing like what was originally forecast. Last night, we had a strong cold front push through and that brought more rain. Total rainfall at the nearest weather station was 1.1 inches. Today's forecast calls for partly cloudy skies by late morning and partly cloudy conditions will continue until around midnight, then the skies will clear. Today's high is expected to be only 57F and tonight's low may drop to 39F.

    What's left of the center of rotation now appears to be in Delaware. Skies are clearing, it's warm, humid, and breezy, but it looks like it's over for my area and damage was really minimal.

    Tropical storm Zeta suddenly became a post-tropical depression and is now about 50-60 miles north of me. So far we have had just a little over 1/2 inch of rain and a few strong gusts of wind, one of which took down one of the dead trees on the property of the @ss that lives behind me, took out another neighbor's fence.

    New forecast, we went from a 50-60% chance of tropical storm force winds to a 90+% chance. Just lovely.

    Good morning. No work today because of being forced to close 6 months ago and we are expecting a visit from tropical storm Zeta. It will not be remnants, it is holding together and is expected to be a tropical storm as it passes just to the north of my location. Currently we have overcast skies, 65F, and 95% humidity. Expecting rain to arrive by 11 AM, then rain and winds of 25 mph sustained, gusting to 40-45 mph from 1 PM to 3 PM. Rain and wind then taper off and we will have partial clearing before sunset, then showers and thunderstorms from 8 PM to 5 AM Friday.

  15. A single bomb, which by itself did relatively little damage, but the resulting fire, fueled by aviation gasoline, set off stored munitions. The fire burned out of control, the crew was evacuated and the Princeton was scuttled.

    Jay, not sure what a "hanklink fee" is, but I suspect it funds his schnapps fueled melding of German and English. I would not give him dues money, it's likely only going to pay for him to have a wild night at the Blue Oyster Bar.
