Happy Caturday, Wheelizens!

Hope that Cali, Paddy and their respective spouses have safe journeys and enjoyable sojourns.

Also hope the Governor of Connecticut learns exactly why we have the 2A in the most graphic possible manner, seeing that, beneath his rhetoric, it’s rather clear he’s a wannabe tyrant.

Another day and another woman pops out of the woodwork to say Trump molested her 30 years ago.

Hai, Sven!

Trump molested me, too! 👿

Any claims that his “Little Donnie” has a readily-identified characteristic like Billy Jeff’s Peyronie’s syndrome?

From the latest news reports, Fatwa, his “Little Donnie” has a barbed tip.

Private sector > government.

Can’t find the link, but read earlier about a guy in Nebraska who wasn’t able to reach his grandma in FL after Matthew. Police and fire too busy to help. Calls local Papa John’s, orders grandma a pizza. Thirty minutes later, talks to grandma on pizza delivery guy’s phone.

And Waffle House

has a fleet of response units, complete with Waffle House-branded trucks and vans, that transport generators, communication technology and other items that will help local stores reboot quickly during most emergency situations.

Warner says in the days leading up to the storm, many restaurants in Florida and the Carolinas have already been stocking up on extra food items and will most likely be serving a limited menu as the storm makes its way through the Southern states and up the coast.

The company’s emergency response plan was set up in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, which destroyed seven Waffle House restaurants and forced 100 more to close in 2005. Since then, Warner says the company has invested heavily in its emergency response technology and deployment systems. When a major storm is in the forecast, Waffle House vehicles—known as “jump teams” or “go teams”-- are deployed from headquarters to the edge of emergency zones so they can come in as soon as the worst of the storm is over and begin necessary repairs or provide assistance.

That’s funny about Waffle House--a guy at work was just talking about the FEMA Waffle House Index which they use to see if there’s power in available:

In 2011, the current head of FEMA, administrator Craig Fugate, was said to have coined what’s called the Waffle House Index. There are three measures in the index: green, yellow and red.
Green means the restaurant is open as usual, yellow means it’s on a limited menu, and red means the restaurant’s closed.
The index isn’t necessarily scientific, Strouse said, but it allows FEMA to know quickly about how things are on the ground.
