    Adams Rubble: yes came Monday to avoid the fearsome storm
    Riddle Sideways: the Predicted fearsome storm instead of the unexpected sudden fearsome storm

    Riddle Sideways: maybe should get a false alarm fearsome storm warning in October to get people to go stock up and get readu
    Adams Rubble: the unexpected one came on November 16
    Adams Rubble: not that fearsome but paralyzed the State

    Adams Rubble: Australia experiencing drought and floods at he same time
    Riddle Sideways: and better recording, computation, etc. has it out a week

    Riddle Sideways: ummmm, the flapping is less
    Riddle Sideways: and the weather is getting worse
    Adams Rubble: we humans have made a mess of things
    Riddle Sideways: HEY... might be something
    Riddle Sideways: maybe
    Riddle Sideways: if butterflies don't flap
    Riddle Sideways: weather don't move
    Riddle Sideways: Vortexes
    Riddle Sideways: displaced weather
    Riddle Sideways: well, maybe a therory in the making
    Riddle Sideways: puts it on the hypothesis shelf
    Riddle Sideways: btw - the hypothesis shelf is very full

    Riddle Sideways: there was a grand celebration in the streets over their politians being in jail for one year
    Riddle Sideways: people waving flags
    Riddle Sideways: Spain reporting, nothing happening over there, go look elsewhere
    Adams Rubble: Spain does not want Catalonia to separate
    Riddle Sideways: Free speech, seems to mean you are free from jail if you don't speech
    Adams Rubble: Xirana's artwork has been very eloquent
    Riddle Sideways: yes, have lost track of how many shows and styles-themes
    Adams Rubble: we humans make lots of messes
    Adams Rubble: out of ignorance and greed
    Riddle Sideways: thinking there is foul odor to the winds of change

    Adams Rubble: we are always changing
    Adams Rubble hints at a topic

    Riddle Sideways: have a personal dilemma here over the property
    Adams Rubble listens
    Riddle Sideways: the neighbors have fences and have cleared Their land of debre
    Riddle Sideways: fire fuel
    Riddle Sideways: ours is the only yard that turkeys, deer, lions, ducks, etc. can cross
    Riddle Sideways: and ours has much burnable fuel
    Riddle Sideways: very Natural land
    Riddle Sideways: like a forest
    Riddle Sideways: like the forested mountain up the hill
    Riddle Sideways: supposed to fall in line and clear all nuture off this land
    Riddle Sideways: supposed to be good human and mess with the land
    Riddle Sideways: however, have mixed feelings on that
    Riddle Sideways: Should put up a WALL
    Adams Rubble understands that
    Riddle Sideways: should get guard dogs
    Riddle Sideways: should take all burnables away
    Adams Rubble: is the natural native plants and trees
    Riddle Sideways: need a spark fence put up
    Riddle Sideways: yes, oaks and natives are very combustible
    Riddle Sideways: need to plant non-natives
    Riddle Sideways: that deer don't eat
    Riddle Sideways: that don't burn
    Riddle Sideways: actually pure dirt is recommended
    Adams Rubble: birds and insects can't profit from the non-natives
    Riddle Sideways: nope
    Riddle Sideways: the recommended butterfly food plants are combustible
    Riddle Sideways: native bees don't like the new plants
    Riddle Sideways: what to do
    Riddle Sideways: best thing would be not to Think

    Adams Rubble: there are people who want more mountain lions in NJ
    Adams Rubble is not one of those
    Adams Rubble is not having succcess googling "spark fence"
    Riddle Sideways: see more reports annually from the Santa Cruz mountains area of tagged mountain lion ranging

    Riddle Sideways: not sure what the real phrase is for a chicken wire fence that is supposed to stop embers blowing onto a house
    Adams Rubble: ohhh netting around house openings?

    Adams Rubble: but the best thing is to nothing
    Adams Rubble: let it play out
    Adams Rubble: the ice already is covering the snow
