Rants from the Gnarly Beard

Shrubbery and Monty Python

Hello LC community! Happy Homecoming Week! It is good to know that we all survived the four days of rain last week. Of course the weather forecasters were predicting 20 inches of rain, high winds, flooding, overbooked and leaky arks, basically the end of the Earth as we know it. You see The Weather Forecasters Association is a bit edgy and cranky because they haven’t been able to cover the “SAVAGE HURICANNE 2014,” where they report in their soaked slickers by washed-out beach homes. So now they are resorting to just plain rain storms and trying to give them a little pizazz! To most of us, it just rained for a few days which got old; however, that does not increase viewers on the Weather Channel!!!  So stay tuned to the next weather disaster called:  Monster Mist on Monday Morning 2014.

A final rant for the school year

I was struck by how green and crisp looking the Dell was this morning as I walked across it in the early morning hours. Mother Nature sure let loose yesterday washing away dust, pollen, two port-a-johns, six squirrels in a pontoon boat, the Hornet Statue, and a golf cart or two. We found most of this stuff on Lakeside drive and have since delivered it back to its rightful place! Read more ›
