    Never tried the pumpkin pancakes (they do sound good) but I've been knocking back a few of these on this wet and dreary afternoon...quite tasty. Perhaps a future goosecreek brew flavor possibility.

    So many posts to quote and comment on.

    Chisenhallw, when you get in post some complaint about traffic or what not, so we know you're home. If it helps imagine that sentence in a "Mom" voice :lol3.

    Jax, apparently any message I sent you falls into some sort of temporal anomaly. How do you feel about pigeons?

    The rider study was canceled today so I spent some quality time up on my roof, cleaning gutters and checking flashing. I treated the guys to lunch Friday because I could see the crazy coming. Friday night the MRT was just what the doctor ordered. Jodi had her last day at MICA. She was holding court in the back. By the time I bellied up to the bar the bartender handed me my usual, perks of being a regular.
    Saturday the shop was emptied of D batteries, flashlights, charcoal, propane bottles :clap. I had multiple people get angry at me or some of my staff for not having what they wanted. Which was funny because many of those conversations started with complaints about Lowes or Home Depot not having it so they decided to try us.
    Wayne, if you want more generator calls, I'll sent them your way.

    :boid People!

    Anyway, hope the storm is treating you well. I'm enjoying the pictures the DDB's are posting for those that haven't looked, you should.

    Thanks, but no.

    I expect more gensets showing up tomorrow and the rest of the week if the power goes out around here.

    Problem is, everybody will want them NOW! I'm heading to goose's RTB Thursday morning so some of them ain't getting done NOW.

    I expect to piss some people off the next couple of days. :D

    Dude, they closed Johns Hopkins tomorrow. They never close Johns Hopkins. :huh

    So are we just going ahead & planning a hurricane party or what?

    MICA is closing as well. The city is benching the light rail and buses. So to answer your question... Maybe :freaky

    Told a guy Friday afternoon that him being unprepared was no reason for me to drop everything I was doing and work on his generator. He wanted it back before the storm got here. I wished him good luck as he drove off. :lol3

    Sometimes if you just turn the fuel valve on. :nod
