severe t-storm/tornado watches coming later today, CWG says it "won't" be as bad as the derecho though.

I just climbed the ladder to the crawl-space attic and went out the hatch onto the roof, and it's already blowing rather mightily.  Of the two cans of rustoleum rubber spray that I tried to spray on seams where (I think) water got in during Sandy, maybe 25% actually made contact with a surface. 

Interesting though, the white rubber spray turned green when it came into contact with some of the roofing material.  Hope it doesn't all dissolve...the xylene fumes were bad enough without my having made the problem worse  :?

freaking roofers, may they come down with the creeping crud wherever they are now.

we're under a severe TS warning until 8:30, so far it looks like most of the rough stuff has been in Fairfax and Fredrick MD.

Ugh, figures this thing would move just slowly enough to keep my light-sleeping ass up all night (I'm on the Eastern Shore).

Rain is starting to really come down here right now.

Power has flickered a couple times, too. :(

You can't sleep through storms? That sucks.

do you realize how popular that would have been on youtube had you filmed it? 

I suppose you'd need the guy's release to do it, unless you could say it was "news."

Wasn't there a superbowl commercial a couple years ago where a woman goes down a hill in one?
