    Sure would be cool if they did so I hope it's legitimate and not just bullshit. Can't think of a much better purpose for that area.

    You can set up a little bar and offer drinks. Maybe start a beach club sort of thing. I can see it now.

    We mount TVs quoted me $400 to install my “mantel Mount”, told them thanks but no thanks.

    Hopefully they will.

    The last time I went was in 1997 for a Regional with Chattanooga, Providence, Kansas and Arizona. That Kansas and Arizona game was nuts. Sold out and everything.

    I’ve been for lunch. Not bad, but nothing remarkable. It’s a pretty standard mid-tier chain steakhouse (more Outback/Longhorn than Perry’s/Fleming’s/Ruth’s Chris).

    almost 0% because it happened 10/6 and they just now got the footage out. I guess they look for that model and any repairs within a certain radius but :idk:

    Best recommendations for car windshield replacement? Safelite quoted me about $300 to come do it and that felt high.

    From a legal standpoint if they stayed they wouldn’t face criminal charges but since they fled they probably will?

    Vehicular manslaughter for what was clearly reckless driving?

    Yes, it's a felony to leave the scene of an accident with injuries.

    That would be really difficult to prove, barring some other evidence beyond the video.

    Birmingham City Council is voting at a special called meeting of the whole today to make presidential election days a city holiday. Next Tuesday will be unpaid, but beginning 2024 it'll be paid. Good for the city.

    I wondered. Lots of people doing home improvement stuff now so I'm not surprised. Please do share who you get if you like the work. I have some stuff that's fairly urgent, too.

    This is who I used. I wouldn’t know quality electrical work if it slapped me in the face, but he showed up quickly, seemed nice enough, and the Alabama power guy didn’t have any issues connecting their end back.

    My folks had a journeyman do their whole house for something absurdly cheap (b/c it was a reference for his master). However, I have no idea how that works. My house is a veritable shit sandwich of things (it was at one time split into two residences), so I'm eager to cure that and update what knob-and-tube remains. Thanks for the reference!

    Spann was saying it's about a 2 hour window for any given location because of the speed of the storm. We had heavy rain from 1-2AM; now getting the (highest) winds on the back end, I think.

    There seems to be a second gust that’s hitting Hoover right now. Not sure if I’ll see it in a bit in Crestline or if I’m too far north to see the second burst.

    Still out in Redmont. It came on this morning for about 10 minutes and then we heard what I assume was a transformer blowing in the alley behind our house.
