IN LIKE A LION!

 

About five minutes after midnight thunderstorms moved over Southeast Michigan, reminding me of that old adage.

 

 

Sepiatone

 

It roared through my area today bringing high winds and localized flooding.

We had a 110' tall Red Oak come down in much the same way early in April last year.  There was just the right combination of heavy rain all week long, then high winds, then wet heavy snow, to loosen the soil and push it over.  Another 45 degrees of rotation around and it would have come dangerously close to compacting part of our house.

We had some snow in Manhattan, NYC, but in general, it was the blizzard that didn't happen.

Yeah, but the weather still is terrible. It's very slippery, and it's cold and windy today. We almost made it to Spring without trauma, but not quite.

Just got our first snow of the year.  There is not enough coverage to block the fallen leaves.  About 50% of what I see are leaves, and 50% is snow, and even that has begun to melt.  Not even half of the leaves have fallen yet.  It is cold though.  Glad to have power restored after losing it for a couple days earlier this week due to a storm that was later deemed to be "microbursts".

No damage to our house or property, mostly because we have been taking down problem trees on our very wooded lot along the way.

Cold!  Had to install an IR light behind my house in a tree for my camera system.  Spliced into a 12 VDC cable which I can't do with gloves on.

You have a camera system? Do you live in a high crime neighborhood?

No and helping in keeping it that way.  9 cameras connected to a DVR and VHS time lapse recorder. A few don't like I have my front yard / sidewalk covered, I wonder why?

Security systems has come down a lot in price, can be wired, wireless or in combination.  Some home owners insurance rates will be a little lower if a system is installed.  Internet monitoring is optional

 

Couple of examples

Wired

Wireless

Have a "tower cam" I made myself that allow me to do this - only on VHS at present.

Minus the music:lol:

Looks like a whole new hobby.  I'm already doing something similar with TCM, just so I can record movies offline to keep on my own terms, so that would be kind of an overload for me. :P
