Wait, so gators don't belong in the backyard pools? 

I thought they're basically free landscaping additions that add flare to the scenery and some adrenaline to water-recreational time. 


They are supposed to stay in the moat, and out of the pool.

They had a direct hit just north of Badgerfan.  This is where I play baseball every January.  It's a brand new facility.  There is/was a lot of new home construction in the area, along with the usual buildings housing various and sundry.  I'm sure the trees took a hit, mostly pines.  I haven't heard anything about camp being delayed or changed.


That eye was so huge*, we took a direct hit here too. It was sunny and calm for 45 minutes and then the shit hit the 155 MPH fan. Spooky.

* Hurricane Charley could have fit within Ian's eye completely. That's how big this monster was.

One of the meteorologists here in the Twin Cities overlaid Ian's eye on the Twin Cities. It was larger than the 494/694 loop.

General Electric
is laying off 20 percent of its U.S. onshore wind workforce, which equates to hundreds of jobs, according to a person familiar with the matter who declined to be named.

A note was sent out to employees yesterday.


https://www.cnbc.com/2022/10/06/ge-layoff-20percent-of-onshore-wind-workforce-hundreds-of-jobs.html

GE is said to be examining its onshore wind footprint in Europe and Asia as well.

GE’s restructuring comes as its renewable energy business faces a trifecta of challenges: Rising input costs, supply chain issues, and competition from the likes of Siemens
. While demand for clean energy options is rising as energy shortages continue wreak havoc, analysts say making it’s been difficult to make wind energy a cost effective option. The recently passed Inflation Reduction Act does restore a tax credit for onshore wind, but some experts worry it came too late.

According to analysis from Melius Research, GE’s renewables segment is going to generate between $15 billion and $16 billion in revenue this year, and onshore wind will make up the vast majority, roughly 70%.

Jake Levinson, Director at Melius research says there is pressure to get the renewables business in a better place before it makes the split. “Shareholder interest in a money-losing or marginally profitable business would likely be very low, even in a “hot” space like renewables,” added Levinson.

Meanwhile, General Electric is in the process of splitting into three publicly traded companies – health care, aerospace, and energy.

We can see right here where the Mississippi River wants to naturally flow, but it's not being allowed to.



There are a series of control structures - and even a power plant - associated with trying to control nature.

Given the vast amount of floodplain available in what should be its path, a whole lot of people in the current path would be much more protected.
