Glad your alright and you were prepared.
I guess there’s gonna be a lot of clean up jobs available. Good idea to have tarps for the roof.
Do you have a water filter? Case is was flooded.
Going to be hard on those who can’t get to hospital and staff needing to go home.
A friend of mine in Texas warned even after a storm some trees because of rain or flooding could still topple so don’t park next to any. She told me she saw that happen to her neighbor when the parked in front of the house and tree fell on the car but luckily no one was hurt.
Keep your house locked up from the kind of people coming to see what they can get might not be as bad there. In Texas they’ll even steal gas out of cara when power is out.

Winedoc – Glad you survived

Hope you have a chainsaw to cut your way out of the downed trees.  That’s always the aftermath ‘up north’ of a hurricane force storm.  Been there, done that. 300mph storm hit Wisconsin while I was visiting in 1980.  Brothers all had chainsaws.  I was visiting folks and all I had was a hand bow-saw  to hack a blue spruce leaning against the house, and all the trees down in the street in our block.  Power took 5 days to return and I got dug out just in time to end ‘vacation’ and return to the islands.

From what I remember as young child moving to calif having a stepfather leaving my father and the difference compared to the life I had in green and clean city’s of last J thought I was in hell.
During that time those who identified as Hells Angels were different then. I remember them as Army buddy’s. I thought of them as body’s that liked motorcycles particularly Harleys. They could drink but didn’t take drugs that I knew of. My mom was afraid of bikes and accidents but I managed to talk one of them into giving me a ride while my moms telling to go slow and just down the block. I wanted to go faster.I was about 10-11. But I wanted my own.
Since then they changed into where crime is involved and the song, Born to be Wild.
There’s other Harley groups but don’t put it past them a minute for things to change. Like the difference between a family lab and a pit bull and they see another pit or territorial issue walking down the street so to speak. Maybe good in war but stressful for those that don’t have the same mindset. Awhile back I heard some old guy went into one of their bars a way from here. I guess he told them F the H. a.s
He was found dead from a gunshot on a road in his way home.

Well it’s Sept. 24

Somebody (EU?) said we would all remember where we were on Sept. 24.

I’m snug at home… well prepped.

I needed a 10-foot stepladder to put up an antenna.  The orange box Depot rents & sells, so I checked them out.  I needed the ladder for a week, I estimated.   Found that for three days rental, I could buy the ladder.   So now I own an extra tall ladder.

Hurricane Fiona

Posted by winedoc @ 10:40 on September 24, 2022  

Hey All

Historic storm.

Im safe.  Winds were 179 Km/hr

I have a wooden fence down  and blown into pieces,  and some large trees,  no structural damage to house

Running generator and have lots of food

My best friends roof shingles all came off and wrote off 3 bedrooms with rain coming in

Over 1/2 the province has no power, all of Prince Edward Island is out

We are having the post hurricane winds now.  Shelter in place, not allowed on roads so many power lines are down

Maybe some day drinking later …… 🙂

Thanks for concerns

Winedoc

My prepping came in handy ……..

I think everyone here is hoping and praying for an honest election. If it is honest then the Democrats and their leftist lunacy are going to get a real shellacking! A Republican landslide won’t fix all our problems but it sure will be a step in the right direction.

“cuz you never know”  No personal experience, but I think that is a probably good summary for life around the Hell’s Angels of that era.

Yes, according to his book, he did. I think it was a little strange and tentative “relationship” from the outset. Not too surprised it ended the way it did.

What do u all think of this aricle……is it happening and can it make a difference…because if it can

Posted by Maddog @ 9:03 on September 24, 2022  

there will be a GoP landslide and all sorts of problems will disappear….over time.

Re Putin

I saw somewhere that Putin went to Davos a long time back, then stopped going , then went back not so long ago and told Schwab to his face , he is bonkers…..there is no love lost there. Plus with Obummer really running the US, Putin has only contempt for Obummer….so that part is unfinished biz etc.

and yes I’m sure too that Trump would have managed an accommodation with Putin, at a minimum..maybe even closer etc.

The Dems are terrified of it still happening…..and are doing everything they can to goad Putin…..but Putin knows the Mid Terms may change it all….that’s why the Dems wud love to escalate Ukraine to cxl the elections.

Its all beginning to sound like the global bullies want Putin (like Trump) out and regime change in the old USSR. A new puppet gov’t. Hell it looks like they did regime change here too, when they threw out Trump with that abnormal questionable election.

That’s an interesting Thesis. Regime change everywhere – except China.

Funny, you can bet the same group of people that have destroyed societies around the world for centuries, is parasitically working themselves into the Chinese Banks and economy to once again infiltrate and destroy the host. China just doesn’t know it yet.

I also agree with what you said earlier that Putin did like Trump because Trump was straight up and honest with him. Eventually, Trump and Putin would have made peace and establish certain alliances. The Deep State was having none of it.

Which begs the question, why is it that we here in the west always need an enemy. Course the answer is simple, peace is bad for the MIC.

It looks like WineDoc is going to get nailed by a Hurry cane soon too

It’s better if they have their own life cuz I’m a bit unsteady on my feet now with this nerve damage think abd you kinda have to be in shape around them cuz you never know. I had to give CPR to a widow after she was attacked by a man for instance not one of them way back. Last time few yrs back went to Oregon I wound up heading with another widows her daughters armed over something else to watch the daughter while she went after someone but knew her since she was a baby from southern cal
I decided to do reverse psychology on her she had new friends a new life wished her the best. Besides she didn’t want Trump lol Luckily that side tract happened so we didn’t go see them she knows I try to avoid fights. She said these are older guys. Lol I suppose it would of been fun but they just can’t seem to stay out of fights.
One associated with them here and friend when newer here took me rafting after I said I missed rafting. Well even on a boat in the water a fight with another boat but they started it. They even stopped on a Island drinking beer waiting for him, The boat came by and I knew that guy was in the eager hiding behind the boat when they said to me he “ my friend did this and that I said your friend did this first and that first.
The mom who I hung out with told him I liked her better lol you should appreciate more was a Christian got all over them about taking me along. She said you were brave going out in the River with these drunks and her sons quiet. He couldn’t say he wasn’t cuz I had to help them in boat off Island and take it out, I told him I thought was a trip for me not you lol . But at least I knew where it was “ AND Go BY MYSELF next Time.
Beside that if you commit you have to attend certain things like meetings. Plus who knows.
