@flyinphill said in Just a little blizzard:
@donnie I have seen a show on the Chinook winds. I don't remember the exact details, but somewhere in North or South Dakota there was a change of about 50F in 2 minutes.
Spearfish holds the world record for the fastest recorded temperature change. On January 22, 1943 at about 7:30 a.m. MST, the temperature in Spearfish was −4°F (−20°C). The Chinook wind picked up speed rapidly, and two minutes later (7:32 a.m.) the temperature was +45 °F (+7 °C) above zero. The 49 °F or 27 °C rise in two minutes set a world record that still holds. By 9:00 a.m., the temperature had risen to 54 °F (12 °C). Suddenly, the chinook died down and the temperature tumbled back to −4 °F or −20 °C. The 58 °F or 32.2 °C drop took only 27 minutes. The sudden change in temperatures caused glass windows to crack and windshields to instantly frost over
Sometimes in the spring the wind can feel like someone's turning on the hot and then cold water when you're in the shower. Spring can be quite angry around here.
It's mostly a windbreak. If we get frost the party is over. I usually cut the plastic off when they get established and to keep the fungus down in this tropical environment here on the gulf. It's been blowing the hair off a dogs back today and more so inshore from here. We're guilty of supplying the moisture needed to fire up the storms along the boundary of the fronts that come in the spring. It gets pretty hairy down here in a spring norther, no snow but straight line winds and waterspouts can happen. People going out in boats not watching the weather usually ends in a disaster this time of year. Matagorda Bay where I grew up gets rougher than hell in a wind, especially the south side where it empties in the gulf when a norther blows in. I think most of the bad weather is going to be east of us tonight and I could use a little rain but none of that frozen stuff, sure noisy on a tin roof.
I have Kuiu Tiburon pants for shooting in the summer that I like A LOT. Side vents and dot-air fabric make them cooler than wearing shorts. Might be a little light weight for what you're looking for though.
I will be getting more of the Kuiu Attack pants https://www.kuiu.com/hunting-pants-shorts/attack-pant/40001.html?dwvar_40001_color=Gunmetal&cgid=pants-and-shorts#start=2
They fall in between the Tiburon's and blue jeans weight wise, and they also have the side vents to cool the undercarriage off quickly when need be. I really like the way the Kuiu pants fit me. They wear like my favorite blue jeans.
I have some Kuhl Radikls that I like when it's real warm too. Nice stretchy areas above the seat and in the crotch.
I also have Kuhl Rydr's that I wear in the shop but they're more of a heavy jean weight canvas pant. Worst part about the Kuhl's is even their relaxed fit pants run a pretty tailored fit that can be tight on my thighs and butt.
I've been looking at the Prana Zion stretch https://www.prana.com/stretch-zion-pant.html - they look very similar to the Kuiu Attacks
and the FirstLite Corrugate https://www.firstlite.com/corrugate-guide-pant.html -- $$$ is the main downfall on these
According to the ‘official’ police report, Holland was “found unconscious and unresponsive” in his cell and prior to dying and he was “under the continual care of a physician” at the time. However, according to the video obtained by the Tribune, Holland was not unconscious at all. He was seen writhing in agony only moments before he lost consciousness and died. What’s more, no physician was constantly present during his 47 hours of torture. Had they been present, Holland may still be alive.
They strapped this guy in a chair and left him there in his own piss and shit for two days. A blood clot formed, from not being able to move... and he died. These fucking cops tortured and murdered this guy, and are seen on video laughing about it. Zero punishment.
I am partial to Cambridge Bibles. They make great quality stuff...just make sure it is bound in French Morocco (preferred) or at least calfskin. Bonded, Pitt minion, and most others are junk in comparison.
I also really like Nelson signature series bibles too, but they are out of print and fetch crazy prices. They were about $125 new, but now bring $400-$500! I still have one, but use it sparingly.
You can expect to spend somewhere in
The neighborhood of $100 depending on exactly what you get. I like slimline bibles as they are lighter...but also smaller print.
I recommend finding one you like and sticking with it when you get a new one. That way the verses are in the same places on the page. You wouldn’t think it would matter, but you get used to it and a new Bible will be different if it is not the exact same model.
If you want to find one cheap, then decide what you want and then watch for one on eBay that has someone’s name on it. I have picked up several very nice bibles very cheap that way. No one wants a Bible with someone else’s name on it, but I could care less.

Its one of the products that I sell. Stuff cuts heavy grease with ease. Hell it will soften dried paint if you let it soak long enough.
Religion in general can get dicey. Religion in general however is not about truth, but rather preceived truth. Christ after all was crucified in the name of religion (Jewish). Truth is not easy to find in the religious world...or any area of discussion...yet that does not change the fact that truth can be known....and that It is generally hated.
I seen that video before and couldn't think how anyone could debate that. We really need more people to throw more of those type arguments down I feel pretty confident that there would be far less debating and bickering if there was.
Yeah well its 73 degrees and partly sunny in South Fla. We're supposed to get to the upper 40s as a low at night later this week if that makes any of you feel better.
While I cant walk out my back door and shoot, I guess being warmer most of the year is some consolation.
I'd rather it be -100 year round than live there, or any place like it.
That is why they don't throw a fit when people are falsely accused and arrested.
It's mob rule at its finest. If you aren't friends with the right people or have the right last name, you're on your own. After that it just comes down to money. If you have enough money you can buy your freedom back.
Funny, my company has ventured into roof coatings this last year and I've been some training. Everything we've been taught is never leave anything black on a roof exposed. Not because we sell white, but because black stuff has asphalt in it. Asphalt, breaks down over time, and your membrane fails. So we coat it white, but then it causes other issues.
I have this one on my hunting pack.
I don’t know anything about first aid kits really, but that’s one I grabbed.
So I’m kind of just tagging in here.
I'm down for a few more weeks. Knee and shins are better, but I had some kindey stones blasted yesterday and I'm sore and need to have the stint removed before I feel like working out. I am still watching my diet and keeping my weight off at least.
I feel that if I read things that I don't agree with is the only way to really learn what you are up against and sometimes there are things in what they are saying that makes sense with what I think and sometimes things I never thought of that can be applied to what I think and believe. So read and listen people might learn something.
Having empathy also is a good trait to have also IMO.
We all know how most charities work. The people running the charity see 95% of the dollars and benefit, while those whom really need it see the other 5%. This website will not be used to perpetuate that. If this charity isn't run that way, then you can contact me @ sales at primalrights.com to plead your case. ... and I will expect direct access to your accounting files to see for myself. I'm versed in quickbooks, peach tree, sage, and SAP to name a few... but have no issues digesting just about any format.
... otherwise, have a nice life. :)
... and we're done here.
City people will never understand country people.
Country people will never understand city people.
Country people don't try to tell city people what to do.
If city people would stop trying to tell country people what to do, everything would be fine.
We have got to get the influence of money out of life. It needs to be removed from every aspect of life. Marriages would be better. Families would be stronger. Churches would be pure. Business would be honest and truthful. And governments would be for the people. The love of money has corrupted most every aspect of life and will continue to do so unless we as a nation choose to change.
You should see the crap I see in the name of the Patriot Act. If you don't tell the government where all your money is, they have the right to take it without due process. Talk about trampling on our rights.
