I only now realized I had never befriended you - I should have done so much sooner.
Thanks for accepting my friend request Cerenkov!!! Hope things are getting better for you and your neighbors down there in Columbia. Just thankful. It could have been much worst if that hurricane had not went out to sea. Thanks!!! I think this new site is going to bring more people to it and is going to be a lot better than the old site which I think will fade from our memories in no time at all.
Things are slowly getting better, but we have too many closed road and washed out bridges.
I love your new avatar!
Actually I was writing to see how y'all are doing with the flood damage... Hope all is well for you!
My house is fine, and I finally have running water again. Many roads are still closed, with damaged bridges or eroded surfaces. This makes traffic pretty bad. Also, a large number of homes and businesses were severely damaged.
The blue glow is Cerenkov radiation, which is emitted by particles traveling faster than light in a medium, as they slow down.
LOL...had to do a google image search on your avatar...it was driving me nuts trying to figure out what it is! Nuclear reactor...hmmmm, interesting!
Welcome Cerenkov, you weren't near Chernobyl by any chance I'm seeing a bit of a glow around your avatar.
