Fortunately for me I'm in the Disney microclimate. Weather reports here are always under 90 degrees. Pay no attention to the thermometer that says 95, look at the report on your phone and you will see that it's actually only 89...You'll feel much cooler.

Now go three degrees higher. That's what I predict for 2020, and massive failures in the Texas electrical grid, which by the way is isolated from everyone else.

Special Kiosk sales of generators (Honeywell) and HVAC (Lennox) are off-the-charts in Texas. smile

Generators only work as long as you have gas for them. If the refinery doesn't have electricity, gasoline supplies run out quickly. Most of the inadequately supplied run out of gas for the generator, then go hunting for more but gas stations are out. You could take a cold shower, but without electricity the pumps that send water up the towers don't work.

I think I would use my gasoline to leave the state for Colorado.

So Rudy goes on TV and says: "Truth isn't truth." I think we have another "depends on the meaning of 'is' moment" here. The only possible conclusion is that Rudy is not fit to be an officer of the court and should be disbarred, but since I am a Democrat I would love it if Trump would go into court with Rudy representing him!

The other interesting thing is Trump denouncing the NYTimes story quoting his own lawyer as Fake News. By now everybody should recognize that "Fake News" doesn't mean fake. It means "News I Don't Like". John Dean did jail time for things he did for Nixon. He says that the President's lawyer is right to save his ass by spilling all the beans to Mueller.

I think I would use my gasoline to leave the state for Colorado.

Last year for Harvey, Costco purchased a 60-car train load of gas from North Carolina and railed it to the Houston area market. Even non-Members could purchase gas without a Membership for this short period.

It was the first time that Costco had ever done anything like this. It was a win-win for Houston and Costco. Memberships increased 1500%.

Costco also sold the Kirkland-brand cases of water bottles for the normal $3.99 (...but you needed to have a Membership to get inside). Wal*Mart sold theirs for $61.00/cs.

The only Warehouse that did not offer gas was Humble, TX because it was under water, literally.

THAT is exactly what it means. Hmm But Trump isn't intelligent enough to articulate his thoughts. smile

Manafort's guilty, it's true.
That much we already knew.
But since Cohen copped a plea,
Perhaps you can tell me,
Does that count as one witch or two?
