Yes they do. Ranchers use them to move manure.

Do they call them manure shovels?

Imagine a more alliterative alternative.

 

Hmmm. I get what you're saying.  My grandfather was a "gentleman farmer" and often used cow manure for the garden. But he just wheelbarrowed through the pasture and picked up the dried cowpies.  He was hard-core.  Think he was raised on a farm, but went on the graduate med school and be a G.P.  Hence the "gentleman farmer" thing.

@Rinna: That is literally what they were telling you to do - with a straight face. Write your name on all extending limbs.

Granted - I was in college, the hurricane in question turned out to bring a 100-year flood, aaaaaand my party school town was basically cut off from the rest of the world for a couple weeks due to water where it wasn't supposed to be.

Picture cops on boats yelling at belligerent teens to stay on their porches or get arrested.

- Followed up by the new water show HEY KID WRITE ARM ON YOUR ARM, From The Police

- Texas Nerd Commune

- More poop talk

 

And a partriddggeee in a pear treeeee!!

This just in, our local college is EVACUATING Thursday! Probably because they don't want to deal with the liability of Frat Bro Chaz doing stunts during the hurricane and getting hurt, and his helicopter mom Barbara suing them.

ALSO!

 

Double post because I wanted to share a story from today that reinforces, no matter how hard The Fitness Thing is, it is and will be worth it:

 

Talking with boss this morning about how her husband had a super stressful weekend because his elderly mother fell at home and couldn't get up.  And laid there for AN HOUR AND A HALF before she called someone Because Pride.

 

I can't imagine falling and not being able to get up because you don't have that little modicum of bodily control.  We were both just kinda shocked that she couldn't even crawl to a couch or stool and use that to help herself up because she had no upper body strength.  (Boss does lots of yoga/pilates and is a very healthy eater)  Like.... gosh.  This right here is reasons #1, #2, and #3 why I want to stay fit and mobile no matter what, because honestly I'm not getting any younger (*36 year old granny waves her cane*) and thinking about something like this just makes me go.... no.  No way!!!!  I never want to be that old lady who can't get her mail, or take care of her own housework, or needs help with the groceries.  Or who can't get up off the floor.  I never want to be confined to my body or have it work against me.  Age never ever has to limit what you can do and I'll be danged if I let myself fall into disrepair and a hindered life....

 

Anyways, food for thought, back to your regular scheduled BADASSERY.

 

This.... I'm totally with you on this!! I'm also with @Tanktimus the Encourager on the no to crazy levels of overweight all the bad family genes for that stuff. >.<

Real life reality TV when it happens elsewhere, eh?

 

Man, I think for a lot of people common sense literally goes out the window.  Just... chill out, be smart and rational, stay inside, don't go go-karting during the storm or something... granted, our media helps NONE with this... (I mean, just go to the Weather Channel website at any time and ZOMG DISASTERLAND)

 

 

OOH snow stories!!  I bet it's pretty similar here... they've cancelled school before BECAUSE IT IS COLD AND MAY FLURRY and lort forbid kids have to put on a goddamn coat or something???

 

It happens really often and as someone from New England with actual winters it's just facepalm-worthy.

 

Dudeeee.... Most memorable snow incident ever... The week after I moved to Portland OR in 2008 the city got 19 inches of snow (really... 19 inches I really thought it was soon much less) and the city SHUT DOWN FOR A WEEK!!! And I mean SHUT DOWN... no trains... no buses... company I worked for closed its offices... you could not get around at all. For this Northeasterner it was... weird and shocking... I also laughed really hard at people because they do not do snow in Portland.

I live in a state where if anything is coming out of the sky, it's like "OMG! HOW DO I DRIVE??" And people start going 40 mph on the highway. It's just a little rain people, calm down!

 

Hehe... I totally know how that is and that is very rarely me... When I was visiting nerd peeps in Denver I drove through snow, sleet and rain driving back to town from the Rockies and I think I was going 50 + most of the way o.0.

 

@shaar awesome job at picking yourself up and even more glad that I threw Ghost vids at you because there is no better thing that random vids straight from a concert, amirite?

OMFG a week... that is insane.....!!!!!  

 

The most I can recall in New England was 24 inches, but everyone had busted out and was motoring through snow piles in like two or three days.

 

/me pulls up USA map because duh geography

 

Oh wow Oregon is pretty much on the same level as New England latitude-wise... must just be a more mild climate there!

HOO DAWGIE according to Weather.com WE ARE TOTALLY DOOMED

 

doomed.png

 

Just look at those key words - dangerous - destructive - strike - CrUsHiNg - CHAOS

 

Also I wonder why it has me at Washington DC weather, hm, nice try, anyways.

 

This morning I pulled in a bunch of bullshit off the porch.  The rain's not supposed to start until Friday morning and then through Saturday night... we might get a total of 6-7 inches overall??  Saturday will be the worst.  To our credit we are in a newer subdivision with not a lot of big trees so we don't have to worry much about Wayward Branches finding their way into our living room.  We are somewhat low-lying though so our roads will surely flood first, ugh.  Hoping the backyard and easements can hold all the water and that it doesn't back up onto our porch.  It'll be ok, we'll have wine.

 

ALSO ALL THE LIQUOR STORES ARE CLOSING FRIDAY (our ABC board is state-run as opposed to individually owned franchises) so wowie people better get their moonshine ASAP.  We are making a grocery trip tonight for non-perishables because we usually shop on Saturday but lolnope.  

 

I still have serious lat DOMS from Monday.  Ugghhh this better go away by tomorrow so I can do shoulders & arms without issue!!!

My favorite hurricane notice of all time cautioned residents who were too stubborn to leave (of course I was among them) to label their limbs (I labeled the shit out of those limbs).

Aaaaah. Hurricane season - how I only kinda miss the hysteria, since apparently they come to NYC too now.

OK OK, what the hell? Clear this up for me. Are you labeling tree limbs in case they cause damage or something? Or your arms and legs so they can identify you when the hurricane rips you apart.

That one.  I thought tree limbs also, but giggled imagining people writing on their arms & legs......only to find out it was arms & legs.  Go figure.
