Good Morning Kossacks and Welcome to Morning Open Thread (MOT)

We're known as the MOTley Crew and you can find us here every morning at 6:30am Eastern. Feel free to volunteer to take a day - permanently or just once in awhile. With the Auto Publish feature you can set it and forget it. Sometimes the diarist du jour shows up much later: that's the beauty of Open carries on without you! Volunteer in the comment threads

Good morning all, Stream of Consciousness Man is once agin in Oregon. Sitting in the living room, pellet stove a blazing, KATU news on the tellybox, sitting here all snuggybug in my 'lectric throw which mrs e just gave me for my birthday. I love being in a nice warm house on a wild night, I watch tivo'd PBS mysteries like Inspector Lewis Mrs Jane Marple or my all time favorite: Sherlock Holmes. I could watch him all night.
Rain rain rain rain and wind wind wind wind. Dave Selesky saying this will be the strongest storm this year. HD makes Dave look like he's gonna jump right into my living room.
Boy am I glad we switched from Hughesnet disc to Verizon 4G, Hughesnet alwayss went out in bad weather, I couldn't do this.
Been charging up the batteries. I have a set of Delta 18v battery tools, two of which are lights. If the lights go out I got 4 batteries with about 2 hrs each. the lights go out seldom, not even once a year and, except once, always back on within 2 hrs. (that one exception was 24 hrs)   I got a 4KW generator too. I fired it up a couple of days ago.

So I'm as ready as I can be.

Anyway, as usual, get the talk going and I'll be in to grade it around 0530
Morning Open Thread will begin in 5....4.....3.....2.....1.....NOW!!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
