re: Hurricane Florence - Catastrophic Flooding Potential - Bruco
[quote]I’m south of Raleigh and it’s still raining. Been raining all morning with some downpours. Unfortunately all this has to go somewhere. I feel for everyone downstream.[/quote] I’m in South Charlotte near Matthews and we are closing in on 10 inches of rain. Lots of trees down and low spots a...

re: Explain to me ‘hanging out’ at Breweries? - Bruco
Why is this a hard concept to grasp. It’s effectively a bar. I prefer going to breweries over a bar because I like to do flights and try a bunch of stuff. And, at least around here, the breweries tend to have better and bigger outdoor spaces than the bars do. As I get older I much prefer day...

Charlotte is opening some schools as shelters, in case anyone knows of some people who maybe aren’t in a financial position to rent a hotel room for multiple days (or if they fill up). ...

re: Hurricane Florence - Catastrophic Flooding Potential - Bruco

We live ~900 miles from Wilmingt[/quote] Judging by texts and emails my family thinks that Charlotte is a coastal city and my ho...

re: Hurricane Florence - Catastrophic Flooding Potential - Bruco
[quote]That tropical tidbits guy explained it well. The eastern side of the high pressure in the midwest will come down on the low pressure hurricane, forcing it to the right (southwest). There is also a high pressure ridge over Bermuda that is making the hurricane go up (northeast). The new think...

re: Hurricane Florence - Catastrophic Flooding Potential - Bruco
I know there is this blocking high pressure system in the Midwest but has there ever been a storm that ends up moving SW along the coast? Seems absolutely crazy. Seems much more likely that it just stalls out and really slowly crawls west. ...

re: Hurricane Florence - Catastrophic Flooding Potential - Bruco
My pucker level in Charlotte currently on the steady decline. I have booze and a flashlight and a portable phone charger. That should be plenty (famous last words). Raleigh on the other hand. Yikes ...

re: Killer whale sets a trap with a fish - Bruco
[quote]would love to see a match between a gorilla and a orca. On one hand, you have the gorilla, with the brute strength to lift entire buildings off their foundation and rip entire people in half. On the other hand, the orca, genius-level intellect capable of solving complex mathematics and po...

re: Tell your crazy mother inlaw stories here - Bruco
My long term GF’s mom is a hoarder. She hasn’t been in her parents house for about 7 years. Opening gifts at Christmas is brutal. Every gift she buys includes a 10 minute story about when she bought it, what coupon she had or what sale the store had. She literally only cares about shopping a...

re: tOfficial Better Call Saul S04E05 Thread “Quite a Ride” - Bruco

re: White Family slaughtered for being white in South Africa (12 year old boiled alive) - Bruco
