    At least the mosquitos are about to die out for the year. Bigger than sewer rats around here, I'm the Southerners on TB can vouch for similar stories. :D

    Its the spiders that you need to look out for right now. For some reason I have seen more spiders in the last two months than I have in my entire life.

    I 'spect you'll be visitin' Orlando soon, seein' as King's Bay is only about 4 hrs from here....

    ...mi casa es su casa, amigo!

    And, like Don't_Fret said, thanks man.
     
  6. My exterminator has the reason. He said that what you've experienced is true all over the state. In his experience, and taken along with some other natural signs, it's a sure signal of a tough winter. In fact the Farmers Almanac guy, who has been with the publication for 40+ years says that he's never seen more signs point towards a bad winter in all his years prognosticating.

    Neptoon, Thanx for your service and welcome back!

    Is this a long term station or just a layover to more exotic ports-o-call?

    Raises hand as well, and agrees with dep1974 about the use of the sonar system for bass amplification!!! :hyper:

    Bet we could hit the brown note with that one! :D
