    Heck, I remember Matthew last year. We were this close to that one being a mess here. And that was an early October storm.

    ETA: Going to need some roofing nails and tarps. And to get on the wait list with some roofers. I was going to need to pay full price for a new one eventually, so nice of Irma to get the insurance company involved...

    Now we're really at a premium for no more storm this year though. No water in the house from this one, but another landfall here before we get a new roof on will be a mess.

    Also, we're going to have to figure out with the neighbors who owns which pieces of the fence...'cause a big chunk of it needs replacing.

    Hello slow Box. Just waiting for a 5 pm meeting.

    Separately, I could not imagine a life having to write ISO standards.

    It could be worse, you could be sitting on a 5 person committee that writes ISO standards.

    ETA: I've heard that sometimes a 3 hour meeting is called over questions in punctuation.

    Got to meet the local leos at my work, some idiot set the alarm and left while a few of us were in the building still. They did take a while to respond, despite walking across the street to our location. Also 10hour days suck

    One of my coworkers sits on an ANSI safety standards board and he can definitely confirm that.

    I've been lucky and avoided from being voluntold on to one of those committees. Then I miss a day, and end up being put on a "blue ribbon" commission studying some mission statement.

    Guess that means I'm heading back to RI to secure teh beach house. And while I'm there, I can start the process to pull some building permits (need to get the house on the agenda of the Coastal Resources Management Council before everyone else does, which is dictated by when permits are pulled).

    Of course the models place it due South of New England, and the house is on a South facing beach, with no breakwater (on the wrong side of the Harbor of Refuge) :rolleyes:

    The various Sheratons around Dulles (still shitty) have been really disappointing. The one I stayed in last night didn't even have working hvac. This California native doesn't sleep well when the room is over 68F. I'm a little surprised it even came close to the brand standard. A colleague in another Sheraton nearby had a similarly underwhelming experience.

    The Sheraton Grand Edinburgh was great, though. There's such a standard deviation...

    I'm watching him on Windy.com and seems awfully close to those parts to me and perhaps a backwards loop over jersey

    Well, one thing that is on the upside is that thanks to Irene, Sandy, and all of the blizzards, most, if not all of the trees that were next to or on top of the power lines have been culled, so the power should stay on....hopefully.

    Sheraton and Crowne Plazas have the same consistency IMHO. They have the range from Batman to wonderful.

    My Marriott and HR experiences are much more consistent.

    Sheraton SVO is nice, new, and well maintained.

    I wonder what will happen with the merger.

    I know the Sheraton Austin, long a total batman show, has been making big investments allegedly to come up to the standard Marriott wants it to meet.
