Whoops. Forgot that I don't use Chrome on my desktop anymore, so I can't install this. Guess I'll do so on my laptop.

Does this only work when it’s my own post? It didn’t seem to work when commenting on someone else’s post.

When leaving my name for a restaurant or something like that, I almost always give my first name. If I ever give my last name for anything like that, I never spell it out, as I know they're more likely to pronounce it more correctly if they spell it the way they *think* it's spelled than if I spell it for them.

Apparently, the word “rooves” has become so archaic at this point (in favor of “roofs”) that it’s actually highlighted as a misspelling on most devices. Sometimes I hate the English language. .

Meg, yeah, hoof and soot seem to be immune to the shift the other oo words took diverging from earlier BrE. Saw pointed out somewhere how many who pronounce room as FOOT switch to GOOSE for the compound bedroom (not all, but some).

Crazy stuff. WECT anchor comes across a bunch of people looting in Wilmington; confronts then; then is told to leave b/c police have been instructed by store mgmt not to intervene with looting. The whole situation is surreal; and it feels like there’s a lot more to the story .

@cogscilibrarian: I hadn’t. I wondered if that was the impetus behind Family Dollar’s initial decision. Just saw an update, though, that now police are attempting to investigate the situation and apprehend the looters. This is a very strange situation.

How do they even measure *feet* of rain? How tall are these rain gauges they’re using? I’m genuinely curious how those measurements actually work. .

Comment

Presumably they use calculations based on increases in major waterways?

You can also do cumulative measurements - once you dump out a yard-high measure tube, if it fills again, well, there's your 6 feet of rain in however long that took.

@soup: that’d be tough, though, since they’re usually concave, and uneven, so the rise will be greater than the amount of rain that fell, but not in a consistent manner.

@jenn2d2: yeah, that’s what I envision, but, if you’re in the middle of a Hurricane, who has to go out and dump the rain gauge?

Perhaps? I know they use them for swell measurements and drought measurements at least

Just to give you an idea of how big #Florence is; the diameter of it, including hurricane and tropical storm-force winds, is 400 miles. That's almost twice the distance from NYC to DC. .
