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 Thread...it carries on without you!

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!!!
