Ya know sometimes living on an island really blows! :mad:
Wind wise that is.

I head to work Monday, no biggie, come home in a freaken hurricane ( well not really, but it felt like it with gusts up to 100km) only to be stranded home all day Tuesday. :shake:
Wednesday I head to work knowing the "wind is due to come up again", with a clean set of cloths, and a spare set of work whites for a "possible over night stay with a friend of mine and his family.


I just got home about an hour ago. :banghead:

Soooo
What's been going on this week here at the Planet?
What interesting ponders on life (with poll forthcoming) has our inquisitive friend Mr. Rain Man come up with?
Has "Gaz" passed on any wise words of wisdom?
Has the pastor defused any bickering with his kind words?
Has Goatboy behaved him self?

Fill me in, "inquiring minds want to know!" :hmmm:

Not that anyone noticed this "stinken fader fan" was missing in the first place. :(

Tom Cash (Matt Helm) got himself banned again and there were two long threads on it all day. The n00bs have pretty much taken over the board. Not much else.

as far as wind strength 100km = 62mph (aprox)
Not "hurricane" but when you consider that the ferry (36 car) has to cross 4 miles of OPEN North Atlantic ocean, yeah, it's bad for us folks living on the island.
The boat can't dock safley in anything over 60km. :banghead:

He's a Raiders fan. He's never quite sure which prison he's in. Just anytime he sees a keyboard he starts typing.

Yea-I certainly hope that's a one-way street, preferrably southbound-way way southbound.

There needs to be a Chiefsplanet entry or two or three in the guest book. IMPORTANT: Is there a profanity filter, and can your neighbors figure out who Over-Head is?:evil:

EDIT: I see that the guest book entries are screened. That's probably a good idea.

EDIT#2: Bell Island was the only place in North America to have seen enemy action in World War II. The pier where 80,000 tons of iron ore was stored for shipping was torpedoed by German U-boats in 1942. At low tide you can see the relics of the 4 ships that were sunk during the attack and on shore stands a memorial to the 69 men who lost their lives.

That's freakin' fascinating. I didn't know that.

Yeah, parts of the "old Dominion Pier are still standing too.

In Delaware, we still have submarine lookout towers along the coast that were built in WWII, but I gotta say they never fired torpedoes at us. You islanders are tough!
