Man, listing to you old farts babble turns me green with your talk of hurricane force winds and such. Out here in the Pacific Northwest, it's so still most of the time you can feel it when the old lady farts in the house next door. The autumn leaves get bored just hanging there, week after week. And sailors buy shares in oil companies so they can feel they are at least getting something back for all they spend on diesel.
There's a reason why McGregors are the Provincial duck up here in BC...
