High winds, heavy rain. Bad times out in the world.
That big front coming in from the West got here around midnight. Very strong winds, heavy rain falling. Many trees down on the roads. I just listened to a Sheriff''s Deputy calling in trees down out by the lake. He said the neighbors were out working with their chain saws to clear the road, but it was on a bad curve and he was going to block the road. That's one good thing about living here, when the fewmets hit the windmill, the old guys come out and do what they can. There aren't many younger or middle aged men left here anymore. Mostly there's the old geezer crew and people who work at businesses that cater to them. It wasn't always that way. This place has changed a lot in 30+ years.
I'm glad I live up here. I don't have to worry about going into a restaurant and getting blown away, or being whacked at the grocery store. The news talking heads are all saying that is the new reality. A lot of people in the U.S. won't believe it til it happens in this country. But that's coming , as sure as God made little green apples, and when it does the blood will be on Barrack Hussein Obama's hands as much as the terrorists.
Obama made a speech in Manila today, attacking those who don't want more Moslem's brought into this country. He said they were xenophobic (a variation on the "you're a racist theme.")
He also mocked the Representatives moving a bill through congress to prevent it. He said they were afraid of "widows and orphans."
Precisely at the time that he said these things, Turkey announced it had arrested 8 hard core ISIL terrorists who were in Turkey, trying to pass themselves off as "refugees", and that they were headed "West."
The Governor of my state, Georgia, has said we will not accept refugees in our state until Homeland Security has an iron clad vetting process. He is prepared to use the State Police and the National Guard to prevent having potential terrorists dumped off on us. 35 other governors have told the Feds they will not accept unvetted "refugees". In Georgia, the only dissenting voices have come from the "Black Lives Matter" crowd, who say all this attention on the Paris bombings and the threat to America is unwarranted because we should all be focusing on addressing the needs and demands of the black minority. That's the "where my check!" mentality we have just had to get used to here.
However, in many blue states the lackeys of Obama have said they welcome the "refugees" with open arms. Well, Kumbaya. Seems to me a simple answer is to dump all the trash in those states. If they want them, they can have them. Of course, that is hard on decent people who live in states with a Blue majority.
On more mundane matters, I'm just forting up inside today. Nothing I can do in weather like this and I don't want to go out and get wet. Need to work on the truck but it will have to wait.
Did some light weapons cleaning last night. Two days ago it was below freezing and the humidity was below 20%. That's as low as my gauges can track it. Today it's warm and the humidity inside is 60%. I would break out the dehumidifiers, which I just put in storage, but the weather channel says when this front passes it will go back to being cold and dry. Hellish weather, very unseasonable. Maybe the people who said El Nino would make the South warmer and wetter this winter were right after all.
Just waiting for the other shoe to drop. It's an eerie feeling. I'd feel better if we had a real leader, like Putin. It's no coincidence that countries all over the world, from Israel to France, are sending feelers out to Russia, looking for someone to put things together. Who would rely on Obama? Other countries remember the "line in the sand" Obama drew in Syria. They know America is a bent reed while that man is President.
