The alerts that get my attention are "High Winds" and "Chain -Up in Effect"

dmiller - Posted - 02/03/2017:  09:53:49


There's a building on top of Mt. Washington (New Hampshire) that is chained down

due to high winds up on top of the mountain.  Click the pic - - - > > >

There's an area at Wreckhouse , Newfoundland where winds have blown trains over. Not as strong as Mt. Washington, I don't think.

DeanT - Posted - 02/03/2017:  12:05:56


when the sirens go off, we turn the TV on, and see where the tornados are tracking. Unless they are close to our neighborhood, we don't panic. 

OM45GE - Posted - 02/04/2017:  03:03:41


I've been to the top of mountain Washington several times. Great views! The weather can be unpredictable. This day my son and I drove up. It was near 80 at the bottom and 40 at the top. I've hiked up and taken the cog railway too

DeanT - Posted - 02/04/2017:  07:36:22


hair spray wouldn't work in those winds

OM45GE - Posted - 02/04/2017:  07:41:11


Nope. They fly sailplanes on the ridge waves over the mountains. They've set altitude and endurance records. 

DeanT - Posted - 02/04/2017:  15:45:30


don't know if I'd want to be in a sail plane in 230 mph winds!

OM45GE - Posted - 02/05/2017:  04:12:16


Nor I. 



I was on another mountain doing a winter climb. We were at the top with 80 mph winds. It was difficult to stand. 

DeanT - Posted - 02/05/2017:  06:47:08


he wind blows in Kansas almost every day. We are used to 20 mph. Anything less than 10 mph is calm

OM45GE - Posted - 02/05/2017:  12:30:46


Sounds like a great place to fly kites.  

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/05/2017:  14:08:13


It's often windy in Alberta too,,we get warned to park the trucks some days if you're pulling an empty.

DeanT - Posted - 02/05/2017:  16:33:49


Trucks get blown over on I-70 in Kansas quite often

OM45GE - Posted - 02/05/2017:  16:37:47


That must be an awful feeling. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/05/2017:  17:04:40


Wheee...!

OM45GE - Posted - 02/05/2017:  17:13:40


Oh yeah. 

DeanT - Posted - 02/07/2017:  05:30:55


I think it's Tuesday, but with retirement, I'm never quite sure what day it is...

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/07/2017:  07:50:21


Same here when I'm off work...I wake up with a start thinking I overslept ,then realize there's no rush, no timetable, not sure what day it is......ahh, love it.

OM45GE - Posted - 02/07/2017:  07:59:11


282 days and six hours to go...

DeanT - Posted - 02/07/2017:  11:18:54


Just wait until the last week... it takes forever!

OM45GE - Posted - 02/07/2017:  11:44:25


I keep hoping they will let me go early. I would get almost a year of severance pay with full benefits.

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/07/2017:  12:13:13


How're you gonna fill the time, Bill?

OM45GE - Posted - 02/07/2017:  15:53:24


I've got too many hobbies and not enough time. 

DeanT - Posted - 02/07/2017:  17:09:20


does full benefits mean full retirement? 

OM45GE - Posted - 02/07/2017:  17:28:18


Yup

DeanT - Posted - 02/07/2017:  18:11:55


AWESOME!!! I hope they throw you right out the door soon!!!laugh

OM45GE - Posted - 02/08/2017:  02:34:49


Thanks. It's probably not going to happen. They don't want me to go, but I can still hope. cool

DeanT - Posted - 02/08/2017:  02:49:14


begging doesn't work?

OM45GE - Posted - 02/08/2017:  02:52:50


Probably not, but maybe if I make myself pain in the neck...

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/08/2017:  05:58:37


Dispatchers make PITA truck drivers sit , telling them they can't find a load for them, hoping they'll eventually quit

DeanT - Posted - 02/08/2017:  10:26:54


Bring your banjo to work

OM45GE - Posted - 02/08/2017:  16:53:28


I work from home so all my instruments are handy.

DeanT - Posted - 02/08/2017:  17:28:31


How can they send you home, if you are already at home?...

OM45GE - Posted - 02/09/2017:  04:06:24


I guess they would have to do it virtually.

DeanT - Posted - 02/09/2017:  06:05:11


I could never have worked at home. The jet engines would never fit through the door...

OM45GE - Posted - 02/09/2017:  06:15:05


That would be a problem for sure.



If I have a fast internet connection and good phone service, I could work anywhere.

DeanT - Posted - 02/09/2017:  11:03:37


I don;t think I could sit that long... I think i would need one of those treadmill desks if I had a computer job

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/09/2017:  11:15:05


I always felt better working outside or at least active away from the indoors. I had too many jobs stuck on assembly lines or small work stations.

DeanT - Posted - 02/09/2017:  14:57:51


I've only had two "professional" jobs in my life. I started as an aircraft mechanic at the Cessna factory, but got laid off. Went to the recruiters, and the rest is history.

dmiller - Posted - 02/09/2017:  21:02:47


I loved being "out and about" in the delivery truck for the printing companies I used to work for.  I was at the shop long enough to load up the truck and once loaded, they expected me to disappear to do deliveries.  I always did like the freedom to move about, and still earn a paycheck.

OM45GE - Posted - 02/10/2017:  03:43:26


The nice part of working from home is that I can (and do) get out and walk four or five times a day, play some music, see my son off to and home from, school. It's all good. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/10/2017:  04:49:13


Sounds ideal,,and no boss hanging over your shoulder

OM45GE - Posted - 02/10/2017:  05:12:03


Indeed. Even when I did have an office in a company building, my boss was in a different city forty miles away. 

DeanT - Posted - 02/10/2017:  12:15:11


in the military, we had so many bosses, we never could keep them all happy

OM45GE - Posted - 02/10/2017:  14:55:59


That would drive me crazy.

DeanT - Posted - 02/10/2017:  15:10:06


Oh it did!!! ... but I stuck it out long enough... to become a bosslaugh 

OM45GE - Posted - 02/10/2017:  15:14:01


So you got to drive someone else crazy.

DeanT - Posted - 02/10/2017:  15:36:14


I did my best at it!

OM45GE - Posted - 02/10/2017:  18:04:00


LOL

chuckv97 - Posted - 02/10/2017:  19:26:42


I remember a boss I had in a welder-fitter shop.,,every day he'd say, "NEVER assume ANYTHING!" ...like a broken record
