So I bought a cheap digital camera and decided I would take photos and edit them and post them mostly without comment (hard for me!).&nbsp;The collection grew to 31,000 photos!&nbsp;Before September 11, airline flights were cheaper than the gasoline to drive some places. I had free places to land on floors.&nbsp;I went. I took photos. I edited them.&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/roadskater-net-photos-revolved-faster-better-fetching-views-people-days-and-places-brightened-my-life" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/roadskater-net-photos-revolved-faster-better-fetching-views-people-days-and-places-brightened-my-life#comments Roadskater.net 2011 2012 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2000s United States of America (USA) North Carolina (NC) 2000-9 2010s Alabama (AL) Anniston AL Athens GA Athens to Atlanta (a2a) Atlanta GA bike rides Carolina Century charity rides Clemmons NC Dacula GA District of Columbia (DC) Earth Florida (FL) Forsyth County NC Georgia (GA) Greensboro NC Guilford County NC inline skating Manhattan NY Miami Beach FL New York (NY) New York City NY open road outdoor Pennsylvania (PA) Philadelphia PA photo albums photofloat photogalleries Roadskater.net roadskating skating skrides (skateable bike rides) Smyrna GA South Beach FL Tanglewood Park Tour to Tanglewood (t2t ttt) Washington DC websites photos North America http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1457 Thu, 08 Nov 2012 02:25:42 +0000 roadskater 1457 at http://roadskater.net Hurricane Irene: Cone of Uncertainty, Hurricane Tracker, Storm Surge http://roadskater.net/hurricane-irene-cone-uncertainty-hurricane-tracker-storm-surge <p>I feel compelled to air some thoughts about the current hurricane threat, and to throw in some useful links. I'm sure anybody in the path of Hurricane Irene knows &nbsp;where to go for the latest satellite, radar and projections. I'm hoping they are also giving a great deal of thought to a Storm Plan, in case things get rough.&nbsp;</p><p>Of interest with Hurricane Irene are the Northeast States, if only for their dense populations. As with NOAA's SPC and the deadly Missouri-Alabama-Tennessee tornado outbreak in April this year, the NOAA National Hurricane Center has been pretty sure about this particular storm's trajectory now for the past 3 days. Perhaps that's the nature of the East Coast storms, as opposed to those in the Gulf of Mexico. It seems to be clear to those monitoring the tropics by the time a storm has approached the Bahamas, as to whether it's going to head out to sea, or make for the US coast.&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/hurricane-irene-cone-uncertainty-hurricane-tracker-storm-surge" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/hurricane-irene-cone-uncertainty-hurricane-tracker-storm-surge#comments Roadskater.net 2011 United States of America (USA) North Carolina (NC) accuweather.com Buffalo NY Earth hurricanes New York (NY) New York City NY Philadelphia PA Washington DC weather weather (wx) weather forecasts weather websites North America http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1389 Thu, 25 Aug 2011 22:13:31 +0000 eebee 1389 at http://roadskater.net K2 Radical 90 or 100 or Other Inline Skates, Plus Wheel Size and Frame Placement Tips, Blisters, Pain, Pronation, Supination http://roadskater.net/k2-radical-90-or-100-or-other-inline-skates-plus-wheel-size-and-frame-placement-tips-blisters-pain-pronation-supination <p> Someone on a semi-private internet email list (is there such a thing?) asked a question I thought was well-asked, and I wanted to answer it for them, and for everyone out there who might be thinking about inline skating but doesn't know what to think about all the choices. </p> <p> Here are the main points of the question, or the ones I wanted to address... </p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Locations</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <div class="street-address"> Silver Hill Road </div> <span class="locality">Stone Mountain</span>, <span class="region">Georgia</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="33.825266">33° 49' 30.9576" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-84.164554">84° 9' 52.3944" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=33.825266+-84.164554+%28Silver+Hill+Road%2C+Stone+Mountain%2C+GA%2C+%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=Silver+Hill+Road&amp;csz=Stone+Mountain%2C+GA&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
