    Default Hurricane Irene

    Well, Irene looks to be intensifying and its track is turning towards DC.

    This storm was likely caused by global warming which was mostly man-made through Americans failing to change their lifestyle.

    I really hope DC is spared. DC represents all that is good about America.

    I'm lucky. I have a Zoeller sump pump that could discharge that sucker to the curb all on its own

    There is very little reason to live in America without a Zoeller.

    Why else would you stay here?

    I have a spare bronze one in my basement that I am itching to install.

    A fine piece of American manufacturing. In fact, the finest.

    Nope, not this time Bob.

    I have a Zoeller in a plastic bucket and, as you know, one of the things I do like about America is its pumps.

    I would trust an American car as far as I could push it....and, trust me, I would have to push it.

    But I would trust an American Zoeller and its backup with my life. That Zoeller could pump a Cat 4 to the curb.

    It really is a great pump.

    Come to America. The sump pumps (and the burgers) are the best in the world.

    If you are looking for an angle stop, go to Canada on your way.

    If your looking for a car....don't come.

    Fie, foh, and fum. All this rain; my beanstalk is growing tall. I tell you, there IS one thing I like about England, but I just can't seem to remember what that was. I wonder why I can't stay away from here; must be my European roots' weakness? I guess.
