    They lost a few rigs last year to storms but a cat 5 will clean thier clock. I'm already paying $5.00 a gallon down here in the DR and it sucks.

    For me it's called the greenbelt and a bicycle...(okay in the winter that'll be a little harder to do).

    I'll live without melbo. I don't go on vacations now, don't drive around that much if I can avoid it. I've already seen gas at close to $3.00 in the 70's in Hawaii (and that was on a military base).

    We as Americans need to learn something called conservation - we're pretty dang wasteful if you think about it.

    That is an understatement, and we're also melodramatic as hell. Most people I know experience a mild SHTF if their Car is dirty

    If they have a heart attack about their car being dirty then they'd better not come to my house.

    I wash it when I absolutely have to. Until then who cares. As for the truck - it gets cleaned twice a year. It was meant to haul loads of wood, trash and the like - not to look pretty.

    Okay I do vacuum the car out and make sure there isn't a bunch of trash in it - but other than clean the windows and such --- nah why waste the time or money.

    I just heard from my sister who is ElPaso Tx that she will be making her way down to wherever she is needed along wth the youth group from her church to help with clean up, cooking etc. GOD be with all those in the path of this one b/c it is gonna be a bad one. If you know anyone who is in or near the path and they need anything please post it and we can all send stuff. I am soo scared for these people.
