I had plenty of time to record my ODN tonight - both my Thursday raid teams cancelled for some reason. I guess I can't force them to raid if they don't want to.
NOTE: This will be the last ODN for 2015. See you in 2016!

I keep saying I try to avoid politics on ODN, but sometimes it just can't be avoided. I'm horrified as I watch Donald Trump move the Overton Window so far to the right that what once were extreme positions have now become "reasonable alternatives" for some to the insane positions he is taking. We should be better than this as a country. We've gone from FDR saying the only thing we have to fear is fear itself, to one of the main political parties relying almost solely on fear to garner votes. Okay, getting off my soapbox (for now).
I work with the forecasters at the National Hurricane Center, so I know dedicated they are to making as accurate a forecast as possible. But storms are very tricky things, and sometimes they decide not to behave as the forecasters predict. One thing that can pretty much be forecast all the time is that people will rush out at the last minute to stock up on milk, toilet paper, batteries, etc!
