Teacher? I'd be learning right along side everyone. My only advantage
would be any resemblance to Elite.

Oh, that was me, by the way. Found a workaround with Gmail and my local
provider of cable. Well, it's not my provider, it's my sister's, so I use
Gmail for outgoing smtp, thus I can post again without using Google Groups.
Handy that.

Hiya dude!!! {{{{{HUGZ}}}}}

Nah, no pics. I'm going to sable island, which is a local gas project.
It's very borring, and I don't even bother to bring the camera with me
unless I'm going overseas. I guess I'm just jaded.

And you moved to *Yuma*?! So, what's the appeal there? (I admit, though, I
like having no nearby neighbors.)

Oh well, maybe in the near future. :) But we'd rather you
keep close to home than to go sailing into troubled waters. Ross
and I sort of travel through you, at our age. Ross is a veteran traveler
of the seas, but I've only been down the western Mexico coast (from
Long Beach & back) and the Gulf of Mexico, out of Florida.

Jeez I need a change of scenery- I can't remember how long it's
been since we were last out of town for a few days. Gah.

Well, I ended up here because of my ex-husband's work, which
is the main reason I've seen so much of America's vast wasteland-
he's a pharmacist with the U.S. Public Health Service, and we went
where the Native Americans were settled.
I love the desert so much I've just stayed here. Seems to be a good
area to stay out of most weather extremes except for the heat. Been in
too many hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes to suit myself, so I
stay here. :D

Well, I'm -almost- by the sea, if you count the gulf coast...

I'm still waiting for a hurricane.

Everyone here says I'm insane when I let fly with "Man, I hope we get
hit by a hurricane this year."

Wow, and here I am trying to accumulate those experiences for myself.
Still waiting on a good hurricane. Been in, and seen first hand real
tornados. Once we get a good beating from a hurricane (hopefully this
year) I'll be looking for an earthquake.

Then after that, I'll retire to Yuma where I can experience the terror
of Graboids!

I have been on the Texas south coast for going on 20 years or so. Still
have not seen a big one. We had a smaller one pass within 100 miles. I had
seen worse storms in the Texas panhandle that did not include a tornado, and
more wind in the Texas panhandle on a sunny day without a cloud in the sky.
I remain unimpressed. Now a tornado, that is a storm that gets the
adrenaline pumping.

I understand the desire, but you'll have a whole new perspective
if you get a bad one!
When I lived in Tampa, we were hit by hurricane Diane*. This was
somewhere in the 60's- I was in the second grade, I think, so it might
have been '59 or '60.
The whole night we heard the huge tree at the corner of the house
snapping and dropping branches, scared to death it was going to blow
over on the house.
It was just a few *inches* from the house's corner, and the trunk
was at least three feet across.
Sometime in the wee hours we heard it begin to split- the sound was
nothing I could describe. As it began to fall, we all ran frantically in circles,
not sure where a safe spot would be. Sheer terror.

After what seemed an eternity, we heard an enormous *whump!* as
it lay down *right* alongside the back porch, tearing off most of the tin
roof as it went.

The aftermath was horrible- gas and water lines had been ripped out
of the ground so we had no way to cook, and no water. All of the power
lines were down. We "cooked" on a smudge ball my Aunt Ginny stole
from a construction site.

I have pictures of my brother and me standing by the fallen tree somewhere
in the house- if I run across them I'll scan some of them.

*= It might have been hurricane Donna- can't remember exactly.

I'd like to see the pictures of that if you have any!

I love weather. Except the boring stuff. You know, sunshine and light
breeze. :)

*Now* I recognize the reference. With that guy from Family Ties, with
the honking bug guns.

I dunno, I rate both of them pretty high. I *love* stupid
monster or alien movies. :D

We finally saw Tremors2 just last year, and dug the hell
out of it- liked it better than the first. I will admit to feeling
relieved that this hillside is mostly rock, and not sand.......
