funny Irene video

you have probably already seen this, but... (caution, a bit graphic, but mostly funny)
I love how the newscaster gets upset that people are out in the weather, like him!
These are the signs of the times.  Thanks again, Dharbs!

Okay in Kitty Hawk, NC

I have no cell or landline phone, but internet and power are working.
Lots of tree limbs down everywhere.  Sounds like major soundside flooding.  Will be going out at 9am to view area.
Ocean Atlantic Rentals not opening today probably, sounds like power and roads down in various places.
Will get to Blake's house this afternoon, where he does have a working land line.
Thank you for the prayers!  Praying for NYC right now!!

Update from Booklyn, NY! Massive lines at BJ's

Thanks Sis for shooting me a pic.  B is waiting in line at a BJ's in Brooklyn, New York at about 10:15 am.  Hey B, if you get bored, just start eating!

Conditions in Kitty Hawk are windy (wind picked up around 8am), rainy, but fine.

Great day to deep clean a kitchen and crank music!
Hope u r safe,

Crazy old-timer prepares for Hurricane Irene

Hunker Down for Irene

I will provide a few posts, pics and videos of Hurrincane Irene, on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, from a Kitty Hawk perspective.
You will see and hear what the wEather channel will tell you, but this will be raw footage... Free from the filters of the media giant, that has made big business on weather speculation.

I work in Kill Devil Hills, Duck, Point Harbor, and Corolla North Carolina and will post on-site from these locations.

We shall see.

Mild weather 10:10pm footage in Kitty Hawk.  Hot, muggy temperatures.

My Review of Altec Lansing Octiv Duo Speaker System/Dock for iPod & iphone

Originally submitted at RadioShack

Altec Lansing's Octiv Duo does everything a docking speaker does, times two.

really impressed
By h2oratnc from outer banks, nc on 8/5/2011
4out of 5
Pros: Stylish, Great Sound, Great 4 kitchen or bathroom
Cons: Must install their app
Best Uses: Home
Was this a gift?: No
only con is it basically forced us to install their music mix app to work, after working without app for a while. App is okay, just I would rather not have extra apps I don't want.

GREAT sound for a small room makes it well worth it. I did a fair amount of research, and I am very pleased, for the price and features it rocks!

Setting Forth... Auto-Portrait 2099 A.D.

This is the one I ended up entering in that self-portrait show...
Yeah, you've seen it around my house before.  I recycle.

Bury me in Ohio

Reworked an old Ohio landscape (Wooster, Orrville area) I dug up.
Overlayed a self portrait idea over top, and voila.
It was a potential idea for the self portrait show at Glen Eure's Ghost Fleet gallery this April.  I chose to submit another painting, but this was a fun to re-work.  Big thanks to Scott Powell for always helping me with framing stuff.
Actually, please cremate me... It's more cost effective, and I won't mind then.

Sunflowers almost done

I will finish this one this week for Julia & Mickey. It's been a good experience and I have re-learned to paint in many ways. Thanks for the encouragement!

Latest progress on sunflower commission

I am happy with this one being close. Probably 2 more days of work, then it will be ready to fly.
