    Really hasn't been as wet as I anticipated here near Tampa. Rained a bit yesterday, mainly early. A little rain today. Nothing more than a breeze.

    Alberto just all talk and no walk.

    Fck you, very much.

    IIRC, the Hot Truck is a Cornell thing. Cheap hot subs eaten after hockey and/or a long night of drinking.

    For all lore on Cornell head to tbrw.info. Last I looked an ode to the Hot Truck is on that site (or is it eLynah?).

    It isn't a hurricane, but Ellicott City, MD which was devastated by a flood two years ago, is getting pummeled again. http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/wea...527-story.html

    Hopefully if downtown Ellicott City rebuilds from this 1000-day flood, they will do something to have other outlets for floodwater besides for their main street.

    It's in a valley where a bunch of streams meet to flow into the Patapsco River. I'd do what they've done to several Mississippi River towns - relocate the town to higher ground.
