warmer springs get pretty icy here
son can you shovel the driveway
tons of branches and trees down
like a tropical storm hit the place.
parents were walking outside and almost got hit by a tree they said
Hmm, I think the "V" is one of the weakest tree shapes when it comes to wind or ice, if not the absolutely weakest. When you compare it to the trees like that evergreen on the left it's quite a major divergence
I think softwoods like pines probably stand up to stresses like wind a bit better. If you've ever seen them in a storm they can sway a pretty significant amount. Way more than a hardwood. Which sort of makes sense because when you think about snow loading, it can be pretty uneven depending on wind direction.
You live in the same area as me
me as well. let's do a kissu meet 'n' fuck
6 power lines down.
2 transformer poles snapped
Guess I'll be gone until Monday
I went without power for about 10 days during a winter storm about 12 years ago. It was really rough. The lack of entertainment was one thing, but the main thing was hard it is to sleep without noise from a fan. I ended up getting a simple radio and headphones and put the frequency nowhere near a station so it was just a bunch of static
all fun and games until you hear alien transmissions
I'm going to turn this guy's fan off while he sleeps
What am I looking at?
Is a plank being used to keep up a whole-ass telephone pole?
Cable and electrical lines are handled by different services and the two don't want to touch one another's stuff..
So what you see is an amazing piece of bureaucracy called stapling your broken cable pole to the side of an electrical pole. You see it quite a bit here because it wasn't worth it to reinstall the components and you can save time.
and yeah. I don't really understand either
Grand canyon? I flew over that once, but that can't really compare. It's really quite amazing what erosion can do, huh.
I don't think I'd ever want to live in a desert, but visiting a place like that would be nice, at least not in summer
only a couple million years
The desert is like living anywhere else if you're not one of those people who is ideologically opposed to air conditioning or water conservation/shortages
And if you never want to or need to go outside.
Its a dry heat. So aside from the middle of the day, its tolerable
Yeah, dry heat is much more bearable and even nice to sit in. I'd even say the middle of the day in the desert is 100x better than a very hot day in the coast where everything is humid as hell.
I live in the subtropics. You dont notice the humidity after a year
mm, air sure is scratchy tonight
