"hurricane bertha" Discussed on Daniel and Jorge Explain the Universe

"What is a space hurricane. So i feel like we're asking like other hurricanes and space or can you make a hurricane in-space or what's the equivalent of a hurricane in space for all of the above. It sounds like a pitch for a movie on the discovery channel. You know sounds like in the category of short tornado in a take to cool words and put them together for idea. It's like if the weather channel and the discovery channel teamed up and made a special movie space hurricane with sharks shark nato hurricane with dinosaurs in it. I'm sure somebody in a writer's room has already thought that idea and discarded it. Thank god and then you throw like a bachelor in there and also a home remodeling project and you've got emmy award winning television right back. Flip your house and get married using a space hurricane filled with sharks that sounds like a great show and dinosaurs. Also everything can happen here on this show but yeah. That's an interesting question. What is a space hurricane and did this sort of relates to that question. We were asking about space. Weather like is the equivalent of weather out there in space with all that gas and dust may be out there floating. Yeah we're interested. In whether these patterns we see in hurricanes here on earth are replicated maybe in other forms maybe not in water maybe not an air maybe in other objects out there in space in other parts of the universe so that when the aliens come we'll have something to talk to them about was you'll be wondering how many people out there had heard of a space hurricane or had any idea of what it is so daniela out there into the walls of the internet to ask people what is a space hurricane. So if you live in the wild of the internet and you would like to answer. Random questions is sent you with no opportunity to prepare. Please write to me. Two questions at daniel and dot com. I personally live in the plains of the internet to calm air. There's no twitter or facebook. Just a gentle wind of wikipedia information. Every time you say. The wilds of the internet makes me feel like a rugged explorer risking my life to go out there and gather information e mean reaching out to strangers on. The internet is totally safe. These are our listeners. men they are nice people Is it takes to be your friend. Daniel just be willing to listen to us. Talk about physics. Absolutely anybody willing to listen to this. Podcast is definitely my friend. All right well think about it for a second if someone asks you what is a space hurricane. What would you answer. Here's what people had to say. I assume it has something to do with well. Space weather and possibly solar wind or stellar wind. I'm not entirely show. Maybe there's hurricanes. I don't think it would count as a hurricane on the sun or hurricane on say jupiter. Because they're not quite space hurricanes May at some sort of hurricane to do with the curvature of space maybe approaching a black hole something along those lines. I have no idea what space hurricane is but i would have to guess that has something to do with soda wins. Psalms like a swirling mass of all if it's an spaces for something like stars or something else on with a low of mass when you look at hurricane bertha it sure looks like a galaxy so maybe a spiral galaxies a space hurricane. I can imagine a you're again is created by the sola ring so like there's a big outburst from the sun that's creates space weather and if it's a really extreme outburst then it might create a space hero game but i can also imagine movement of Stuff in space itself might create for xs or space hurricanes. You will all right. I guess it's a pretty interesting answers. Here i feel like people salute thought about a hurricane and it looks like in pictures swirling mass stuff and then they try to add on a projected into space would that look like in space and other planets. Yeah it's great examples of generalization like this is real physics in action here. I love seeing people. Take this idea wonder whether or not it could exist in other forms awesome especially the one about a galaxy being space hurricane. Mary cool right. Yeah is is the galaxy. Technically space hurricane like they look kind of the same big flushing toilet or swirling right. That's kind of what a hurricane is and that's kind of what a galaxy is. Yeah we'll get into it but a hurricane. Actually the low pressure center right with things flow out from the center and galaxy of course is very high pressure center. It's really the densest bod with all the forces pulling towards the center of the galaxy so the mechanisms are as something different. But you're right. They do look kinda similar an anti hurricane. Maybe it'd be awesome. They'll never hurricane where it's raining instead of water droplets. That's pretty meta that would be. That sounds really dangerous. You would definitely not be a weatherman standing there for very long. Yeah we're kind of hurricane proving you need when it's raining stars. It sounds like another great show on the discovery slash weather channel surviving extreme space weather raining stars. But let's get into it then. I guess to push through here daniel first of all. Let's take a one word at a time so a hurricane. What is that technically here on. Earth how do we get hurricanes and what technically counts a hurricane. Is that the right name for the weather phenomenon that most people think of when they think of hurricanes i was really surprised to learn that you give the name hurricane to his particular type of storm. That appears all around the world. But you only call it. A hurricane even appears in particular places in the atlantic or the northeastern pacific. The most general phrase is a cyclones is kind of storm. You get over the water but you only call it a hurricane in various parts of the world. It's like the naming committee couldn't agree on what to call these things and so they broke up without like a global agreement for what they call them. Now is this like a convenient. They may you know scheme or is it just like of the history of how like you know. People who lived here called it a hurricane and people who lived over there call it a typhoon. Is it like pop and soda and coke or is it like scientists like okay. We'll call these the ones over here. There's and the ones that were there will call them that because there's really no difference between a hurricane in the atlantic or a typhoon in the northwest pacific or a tropical cyclone in the south pacific. They're fundamentally the same thing the only thing that differentiates them is where they happen. So the naming convention is just historic. That's what we call those storms. And then i think later people understood in more detail. Oh these really all sort of examples of the same thing but the technical term scientific term is actually cyclone. Yeah exactly it sounds like a killer robot from the future or something but it really just describes this sort of spinning storm that you get which is very typical. The kind of storm i think about when i think about a hurricane. Ac so all hurricanes cyclones but not all cyclones hurricane. That's right exactly two. They're called typhoons in north pacific and tropical cyclones in the south pacific or indian ocean to what.

Hurricane Iota batters Central America

"A set of devastating hurricanes have pummeled central america on november third hurricane bertha. I struck nicaragua and then made its way through honduras in guatemala. According to the red cross more than two million people in the region were affected by floods and landslides caused by the hurricane and then this week another hurricane hurricane iota made landfall in central america delivering yet another blow to the region. The two storms back to back aren't only devastating to communities in central america but are also complicating efforts to mitigate covid nineteen joining us. Now to talk about what's happening on the ground is jeff ernst a freelance journalists base in honduras. Jeff thanks for being with us after having me. So what are conditions on the ground in honduras right now right now. Much of honduras is is underwater Particularly in the northwest soula valley region which is home to about two million people and putting the second largest in honduras and pedro soula as really the motor of of the country. So the fact that so much of this area in particular is underwater is really indicative of how damaging is given that roughly forty percent of the gdp or more is produced in this region but really After i iota we have much of a widespread damage Across the whole country was a much larger storm so just particularly crest the north coast and the west. They're still a rising waters. Some parts We've last a lot of bridges and roads and other infrastructure and as many people are currently displaced by the flooding. The storm's first struck nicaragua before going through honduras and guatemala. What were the effects in those two countries with evita it. It was damaging but it went through a pretty lowly populated area of nicaragua but iota so much larger that it really hit harder in nicaragua. And even the wins were harder to so nicaragua. We're seeing pretty widespread damage flooding even in the capital of managua and south of it so nicaragua's pretty devastated this point. You you've been reporting on This region in honduras for awhile have. How have the government's responded to effort on the ground. The the government's response has been heavily criticised ahead of eight to actually scheduled the special holiday for that week. In order to try to promote domestic tourism and and stimulate the economy which has been really hit hard by the covid nineteen pandemic and there was a clear reticence by the government to cancel that vacation and so they did not emit alerts or or evacuation orders which led to tens of thousands of people completely caught off guard been and then ended up getting trapped on the roads some for as many as five days and of course that led to more deaths which we really don't know how much yet because the water was never even able to fully recede from eight to before we got hit by iota So there's really some clear negligence by the government here and then with in terms of responding. They're they're completely overwhelmed By it and a complete clearly unprepared and missouri question of how they're spending the resources government just a year ago or just from israel this for war that really has has seen of her for country like and yet they're emergency response. Units doesn't have the votes necessary to be able to deal with the strong currents that we're seen from the flooding in order to rescue people in until the water gets down. Do people are very upset. Definitely more than ever with the government and and this could definitely to even more political instability than we've seen down here in the past and that political instability could also spur more Migration out of the region is that right coming towards A whether that's the united states are moving towards mexico or other places as people try to survive absolutely. There's already people organizing on social media caravans That looks like they're planning for january most of them Whether or not that materializes There's just no doubt. We're going to see an uptick in migration over the next year particularly as covy nineteen travel restrictions are eased You know. I talked to so many people already particularly the young people Who just see no opportunity They have no work and now they've lost everything so they really have nothing to lose And they see migrating as the quickest way to be

"Haven't met anybody who is. I met some folks actually from Lake Geneva who lived in the area there were staying miles outside of town where I were and they said they're worried about it. They're worried about that second spike. They're worried about those coming in from Chicago but they'll quickly add at the same time. This is a place that relies on that business. I think people here want a little bit more funding when it comes to these programs so that they could stay close again. I think people felt like the Supreme Court made the decision here in Wisconsin that it was time to open up because see here just route. Nobody's wearing them. Nobody's going clean the city striking images cal Perry cal. Thank you very much. So yes so. The camera man. And most of the crew not all of the crew but most of the crew were not wearing masks cal. Perry was the there were. I saw two people in the frame walking past him. Who had masks on? Everybody else was out about with no masks and cal. Perry the reporter wearing. We're in his fancy mask. And it took a passer-by to point out that none of the people with one exception. None of the people with the reporter were wearing masks. Either and yet they WANNA shame the people who don't WanNa wear the masks that they wanna shame the people who who aren't willing to go along with what they say. Now listen I am totally in the camp of visual public. I I haven't I have not I. In fact the other day I intended to but mine was the washing machine and I forgot it so I didn't have a mask on But just yesterday. I had to take my daughter. Downtown to drop off A piece of artwork and at a place and we were masks going in a war master public yesterday when it was crowded. I didn't wear masks public win. The parking lot was empty. I didn't wear a mask and going through the drive Thru Chick-fil-a but I wore one going into a restaurant the other day to pick up food. I mean use common sense but I don't understand why it's politicized right now. I I don't understand the position of it I really don't it just seems People have too much time on their hands. Now let me move back to some of the Georgia stuff here specifically because hurricane season is upon us you know. There's a tropical storm sailing into South Carolina Today Hurricane Bertha Tropical Storm Bertha and there are a number of reports out for those of you who live on the coast and in South Georgia listening to me right now. There are a number of reports out today that given the limited supplies out there right now that you best go on and stock up on your hurricane supplies now if you need a generator get it now if you need plywood and nails and hammers get them. Now that they there will be no guarantee that you will be able to get those things later. In the season as Georgia's more likely to encounter stronger storms in fact The fact that we it is it's May twenty seven th and we've already got a tropical storm Salem to South Carolina. Give you a sense of what we may see. Now of course Jet Just to be clear there is no guarantee we're going to see a bunch of them but the odds are we are and so we probably need to go on and prepare. I. I should you know considering I do the show so often for my homes to you? I should probably have generated from my house that I don't I'm GonNa Battery backup But I probably need to get a generator. Something for my house at some point. And maybe just for this room I. I don't know I need to talk to an electrician. I guess I need to make something like that happen. I suppose But nonetheless go on and prepare in and take steps plan the other thing you need to be mindful of here. This story always infuriates me. I saved it for the end so I can. I can leave the show. Angry to of Georgia's most prominent business groups united Wednesday depress state lawmakers to adopt a hate crimes law when the legislative session resumes next month. The heads of the Metro Atlanta Chamber and the Georgia Chamber of Commerce issued a rare joint statement calling for the swift passage of hate crimes legislation. That aligns our states law with our values when legislators return after a months-long pandemic delay the passage of a hate crimes legislation in twenty nineteen by borrowed Partisan Group of Georgia House. Representatives was an important step forward for our state said the statement by Hella Model Mug of the Metro Atlanta Chamber and Chris Clark of the Georgia Chamber of Commerce. Let let me read you. The phrasing here swift passage of hate crimes legislation that aligns our states law with our values is religious. Persecution by the state of value of our state is religious persecution by the state of value because the Metro Chamber and the Georgia Chamber have long opposed or religious read restoration. Act Georgia Georgia's one of only a handful of states that doesn't have a state level Riffa. Even California has a variation of Riffa and yet Georgia doesn't and it's been the Chamber. That's been the chief obstacle to refer in the state of Georgia. If you're going to tell us that hate crimes law aligns lines. State's laws with our values does refer not as religious freedom not aligned with our values because you people have been the ones opposing it. I mean the chamber has helped repeatedly kill the religious freedom restoration if you're GONNA pass hate crimes legislation at least put Riffa in it and make the chamber choose shows what our values are. Do you WANNA protect.

"Left off last time the word came out that we're going to be taken to a restaurant in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for a our celebration meal. You know, they usually do this, when you complete storm restoration. They take take you out to a nice meal and. You know, just just to kind of say, thank you to for what you did. So we ended up at a restaurant called Dick's last resort in Myrtle Beach. Now, Dick's is theme restaurant. And the way it's his name is from the waiters and waitresses. They they're rude to customers for instance, they might walk up and say what the hell you want to drink that type of thing, but it's called Dick's. That's what's called Dick's. And, you know, his fun to banner back and forth with the waiters and waitresses when they're talking trash. So our leader of our storm restoration was a young engineer, and he was probably twenty seven twenty eight years old. And this is kind of his first. First time leading a storm team two different area and. So we get ready to get off the bus. He kind of gave a little speech about kind of like your coach do when you played hostile football. You know stands from the bus and gives you a little speech. The company pre sheets all the hard work. You did appreciate all the hard car work. You did. And the last thing he says would does that thing he said was you guys can eat, or drink anything you want, and it's on the company. Now when he said that a cheer went up, and I thought to myself, you know. This is going to be as shit show. If you give lawmen. All they can eat all they can drink. So we Paul that bus we practically ran into that restaurant. Now set down in order to make streak Jack gain in coke Malama fron rusty sit next to me. He Ramada me. Hey, you know, young engineer said we could were anything we want want you just order a pitcher instead of one drink. And I was kind of thinking, hey, that's kind of a good idea. So waitress, gimme a picture of Jack Daniels and coke. Now that pitcher idea spread through that restaurant. Like, you know, an organ down a primary pretty soon, everybody had their own pitchers of their favourite mixed drinks. The tables were loaded with every appetizer on the menu. We also ordered all over the most expensive thing on the menu that was the seafood platter. We ate our food. We drank drinks. We hit us out on the patio to socialize. Now, Dick's is built up on a it's on a large link in this restaurant sits on pilings. So Dixon, also known for the alligators kind of cruise around under this patio and people feed them small portions of food. So these alligators tend to congregate, right balloon the patio. So what you had is you had all the Lama gathered outside on the patio and it was kind of surreal surreal because everybody was they were holding a glass of drink. Everybody was carrying a pitcher Trink around drinking out of these pictures. And I guess all the people you look at what we are crazy, what we're doing. But we did notice there were a couple of large ten to twelve alligators directly below us waiting for some some somebody to drop them, some food. Not talked before about how we chose or storm team to come to storms. Well. My company had a mixture of their city, Lama, could we have the two biggest cities in South Carolina. And then he had what we called the districts which were very rural areas and small towns, South Carolina, and it was always kind of a who's tougher thing going on. Oh is all good. Natured, you know our our city I gotta work with all this big stuff in my tough, or, or the Gaza out in the country, who have to work a little less resources, or they tougher. So kind of the leader of the district Lyman was a guy named Danny now, then was kind of a bigger ga he had a beer belly and had a scraggly beard. And he spoke he spoke very slowly with he had a thick southern drawl and it's kind of a cross between Charlie Daniels in maybe Jeff foxworthy and daddy was a talker. And he didn't mind, giving you his opinion on anything and everything. And even though he was loud. He was he wasn't annoyingly has some people are they're loud and annoying Daniela's elect that he was loud. But he was kind of a lovable guy in everybody liked him. We've been sucking on those pictures of mixed ranks for about an hour. So out here on this patio and I hear one of the city guys he kinda foes down the challenge, Danny. Hey, man. If you're so tough, why don't you jump down in that water? And wrestle one of those. Alligators. Muffler salt was Ono you. I could see it in the paper. Lyman bitten by alligator little knows a little nervous. But Danny he slowly turned his head around and he said. You need a wrestle one of those Gators. I thought I've been drinking a lot. But I don't think jumping off a patio, Dan, with a couple of ten foot alligators was would be such a good idea. Quickly. Denny was already up on the railing, and he was just about to make the leap. When a couple who grabbed him and pulled him back down onto the, the patio. There was no doubt in my mind if we not stopped him, he would have jumped right on top of those alligators. And you know, the funny thing about it is. He might have got the best of those alligators. After that, I think the young jerrican decided it was Tom to head back to the hotel. I think he learned a viable lesson that day forty Lamin drinking unlimited alcohol together. That means trouble. You know, hurt through the great bond later that Bill was seven thousand dollars for forty five people, I always wondered how he got that through and got that Bill paid I it just seems like the company would pay that. So the next day we had to drive the trucks home. And I know I had a super hangover, but it had been a great time. Now did not know that. Within two months, we would be back to the exact same town working a nother hurricane. But that's a story for another time. With that. I'm knocking offered today. Appreciate everybody. Listening appreciate all the comments. You're giving me this. How come up with some things to talk about somebody asked to hear some storm stories and I got plenty of other storms stories believe me. But preceded by his comments, and, and all the suggestions and stuff like that. So. Head on over to my YouTube channel the llama dot life. Or head over to my website, the linemen dot.

"Welcome to the linemen life apart. Casper power professionals yours, your host David Spooner. Good evening. Today. I'm gonna talk about a few stories of working storm mystery now working restoration is one of the most rewarding things that you will ever do as as a lineman. Because ninety nine percent of the time. People very appreciative of you coming to help give the lights turned back on many times, they don't like their own utility. But if you're from out of town, or different state. People are very happy to see you. I've had people bring us cookies happy, bring us food of had people even bring us beer, which of course, we didn't accept. But what gets trouble very warning thing to do now. Particularly today. I'm gonna talk about a couple of stores that happened during storm restaurants for Hurricane Bertha back in nineteen Ninety-six and Hurricane Bertha hit. Wilmington North Carolina in July early early. Very artif- for a hurricane Eappen in July. So we hit it up to women to North Carolina, which is about two hundred miles from our service territory, and we would be working for is the old CPA anelle inauthentic today, it's Duke Energy progress. The way Mark company chose people go on storms. We the union actually had a storm list. And so everybody was on this storm list, and they started off with I put this thing into action. It was with by seniority, but as the storms roll by. Thanks would change a little bit, for instance, if you you're the top on list, they would come to you or call you and say, do you wanna work go to work this storm? Whether you said, yes or whether you said, no your name would go to the bottom of the list. So I tried to I turned down a couple of so many times, I tried to accept them was when I was asked to. Asked to go mock company couldn't always send everybody because you always had to leave somebody back to. To take care of your own service territory. So usually if I was asked I tried to go. I think we had about forty to forty five people. Mostly lower had a very small support staff, and the first day we drove to Wilmington, we met at one of their base yards. And by the time that summit was night is night town. And so the plan was, we're going to go to sleep and begin restoration or the next day. Now since Wilmington. The power is almost everywhere there was no vote tells with any power or the ones that did have power already had current residents of the city stand there. So we were told we were going to have to stay in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, which is about sixty miles away. Now Myrtle Beach is a is a resort town. That place fills up in the summertime of with thousands of people that got thousands of hotel rooms available. So we did get some hotel rooms back in. Myrtle Beach now to give back to Myrtle Beach, every night, they Leonard us a bus so we were gonna pork our trucks at the bay shot up in Wilmington and ride the bus to and from the hotel at night. Now on this bus showed up, we were totally shocked. This bus was almost brand new. It was a it was a preview of fifty passenger preview, and it was, it was beautiful on inside had rows of seize every row, hat, a TV monitor we could watch movies and in the back there were bit as bit bit seat. Very open in the back seat and a half five or six of these pedestal round pedestal tables in the back. So the sooner we get on the, the bus, of course, the senior guys, we kinda took over the back area with the tables, and made all the other this senior God. Right. Our front and on the way back to the hotel, I night we talked the, the bus driver into stopping at the convenience store in Wilmington. Now, it was pretty hilarious to watch about twenty guys Pol of this bus and go into the, the convenience store near buddy coming out with a Brown bag full of cold beer. So that was all routine for the next two weeks, we would finish work eat dinner and then hid the convenience store every night on the way back to the hotel. Now, we will get back to the hotel around ten thirty or eleven o'clock at night, and we usually wake up at follow clock AM for six apart. Six AM departure now. Another good thing about having to travel, two hours a day was, it put us over sixteen hours and in our unique contract if we weren't over sixteen hours a day without an eight hour risk period. We stayed on double, Tom, which, by the way turned out to be the entire Tom. We were in Wilmington. So we were loving it man. You know, double Tom every day, all day it was great. Now, we weren't some residential restoration for couple of days. And then we got a call that there was a big water treatment facility in, when we tend it was out of power, and they needed us, specifically our group to go out there and try to. Restore this because the parts of the city have any any water. So this water treatment, plant was right on the edge of the, the, the line, actually fed. It was on the edge of the Cape fear river and the Cape fear river was a little bit high because of all the rain from hurricane so parts of over one or two feet under water, and it was is very muddy to get out there and the Lao was was distribution on. It was mostly forty foot pole than it had some to all copper conductor, which was very is very heavy. Almost all the polls were up, but I'd say about ninety percent of them were leaning because the soft conditions fill in the countries fell on the line, and just made the polls lean over and a lot of come on Todd and didn't have Todd in very well. So it slipped through the Tasso it was a mess. When we got out there in started to work on it. Now my company as a head, a separate distribution and transmission department, and the distribution Gaza only worked up to forty six eighty and then we have the transition apartment, the one fifteen and the two thirty. Well they had a track. Big track vehicle, a witch a boom truck on a track vehicle. So that was bought out and. They sent an operator from the transmission department and his only job was just to drop that track vehicle and his name. His name was Matt. Now our transmission GAAS were a little bit rough on the edges because we will always use to laugh because those guys were so used to hanging out in the woods over time. They never were around any customers. They're always on some right away out in the middle of nowhere. They were little bit a little bit different. So our first job when we some of us walked in there and some of those road on the traffic when we got in there. The first thing we had to do straighten up. Those leaning polls. And is view climb before you know how difficult it were. It is a severe the name poll. Somebody's post about forty five degrees, and we need to go there and untitled arrest, Wayne thought up on the arms before we straight in the poll up because the wall was all messed up. You know, get out there. We saw orchid in MAC says, hey, have you guys ever seen this? I've got a way where we can pick you up with a winch cable and pick you up there and let you until the war, and then would drop it back down. So match showed us a way where he could he made a loop, and he put it. He put the Ila sopharma cable in the win stroke, he put the fiber through your d rings, and he made a loop at the bottom where you put your foot and you kind of sit back in your Bill and he literally could pick you up with the boom and carry you up to import where you could just untie without ever having a clown, the poll, so. You know, of course, we thought it was great. So that's what that's what we are doing. We in the process of untiring all this wire straight in these bowls. So as we're working. I look down a right away, now see a couple of people walking down the right away. And I didn't really know who it was soon as I got closer. I started recognized one of the people in the group and I was ocean. It was the head guy of our corporate safety department, and he had a guy with him with Hugh who was carrying a camera. So man, I was thinking this is not gonna be good. Because at that very moment, we had somebody suspended from this winch cable on time. One of the polls. Now, some of you heard stories about my safety big Jim. And he was a pretty in Houston, heart. Ask guy, well, this guy walking up was Jim's boss. So he walks up he looks at what what we're doing. And yells out. If anyone you guys says, I saw this. I'm gonna call you a mother buyer. And after he said that he turned around and he, he walked away started walking back down the right away.

"To be the guardian and the protector for my children. So the first storm really the. Are two best sailors are my husband and our second daughter Allison? And they were on watch when the storm came, and they they just endured and carried the day, and it was so then the boats just rocking, and there's rain everywhere, and you know, you're awake. But there's nothing to do except really lay still I would say later, we got some plans like we figured out how to lower the sales from the deck 'cause we just didn't want to risk anybody going on deck at that point to the sales. So the winds are like thirty five miles an hour waters coming up over the sides. You know, it was it was stuff is shaking around. You know, shaking loose and you hear rattling. So it was pretty scary. But at the end of that this pot of dolphin swam with us for forty five minutes, and we all felt better. But later, I know is and all the kids are laughing and the sun is up. But later when we would we we ended up getting caught in some spinoff from Hurricane Bertha in. The Bahamas as we were on our way north and we just learned how to handle the storm. So we would say, okay, the rain is coming. We lower the sales. We try to sail to the back of the storm. We don't want any wind pulling on our sales. You know, it's pelting in. And usually my husband likes to be at the home. When it's in a storm. And he I would like hold up our ipad for him as navigate at. He was navigate and sometimes he would be wearing goggles because we didn't have a big protective covering over our cockpit. Who's just just like a shade covering so he's getting soaked and still trying to see. And so I was down there and hold it for him. And maybe we'd have some broth on this tiny little two burner stove. We have it's on a something called the, JIMBO. So the stove is always re studying itself as the boat moves the top always tries to stay flat. So there's that. And then usually the kids would just be right inside that front door. If it it's daytime there's. A little sliding door from the cockpit into it's called like the salon or an little tiny kitchen with the table seating around it, and they would just our two youngest kids would usually fall asleep. When things were rocky and everyone else, we all get seasick. That's gonna ask you you get seasick. I mean, I feel like I would be vomiting at this point. So let's just imagine that I won't talk so much that occur. We started saying it rocky go, Mike. Oh, gosh. I it'd be throwing up. Okay. So you're dealing with. That is what you're saying that the youngest ones are sleeping the thank goodness yell pay. So did you guys know you had seasickness like did, you know, this was going to be passed a possible like issue that you're gonna run into at that manifested pretty early on in the deal, and Eric just said, you know, we'll we'll do ginger and we'll do. Yeah. So it was hard. I am. I gonna like, you know, why am I gonna miss out on this whole beautiful experience? Just because I'll be msrb. Five percent of the time. That's five. For my I would've been served for more than five percents. It usually only lasts for three days. So then you kind of get used to it. Then then you sort of even out and there are techniques threat. I'm telling you like we were all sick. And then when we saw those dolphins who's like not sick anymore. Yeah. It's kind of like when a baby keeps you up all the time. And then the baby smiles at union those so worth being up the whole night. It's kind of like it just kinda was like, oh, here's your reward for going through that crazy store. You notice the all the dolphins. I fun, right. Yeah. I wanted to ask you explain to us like what the sleeping situation looks like like where are you guys? All at like, it's underneath right? You're saying they're sliding door. And then do you go down and then? Yeah, that's right. So this one is a catamaran and has got the the to sort of pontoons that right the boat balances on. Yeah. You go in the the cockpit in you go in the sliding door. You're in kind of the kitchen, dining navigation area. Everything's very contacted about this is like the thirty eight feet long by twenty one yet white. So then there's like two steps going down to the right and two steps going down to the left. The pontoons are mirror image of each other. In in the middle is a tiny bathroom that you can stand and turn around in like, you can to people because I know that's how I would show her my house sexual right? And then on either side is a cabin which has like, basically a double bed, and then there's enough floorspace again for you to be able to turn around, and it's like the size of a large bath met ninety closet and their storage usually underneath the bed. Ores? So my husband, and I were in one habbing directly across from the two youngest children, and I would lock their door at night because my youngest would tend to sort of wonder, and oh, yeah. Though, I didn't Gary didn't think about that. Yeah. I want her sneaking around in the night. I wanted to hear everything I wanted to let her out in the morning. We also had our boat like wrapped in this netting that most boats with kids or pets on have. So that nothing slides out the sides like you had to think about. Yeah. I'm on the other side. My oldest daughter my middle child. They shared a cabin. And then our second daughter. She had a cabin to herself. But if somebody came to visit she had to share or give it up, and she's also my child who kind of needs the most personal space than everybody. Everybody knows it everybody agrees. So there wasn't any. That's not rare. Like, yeah. A tour we enter to be happy. Yeah. That's funny. Now, you you're saying that you've had people come visit you on the sale. Yeah. One. It was stick couple times like twice. Okay. Yeah. So because we only have so much time. I'm I could ask you a lot of questions where are some of your your most favorite spots that you actually travel through jarring this year during this past year or when we were doing during the c. Yeah. That you're listening. Yeah. We talk. Yes. When we were on the sailboat, I think one of the places that I like best with Saint Martin. Obviously, we spent a lot of time there, and it was amazing to me as much as we traveled to realize if you just stay in one place there's so much to discover you can keep looking deeper. So that's what I loved about Saint Martin in Saint BART's. I think what I loved. There's that. I was so surprised I thought it was going to be this posh frou frou island. Everyone kept telling me. Sidewalks and Gustavia was beautiful. But we were anchored in a little bay called Columbia a about a mile away from Gustavia, and it was just rugged cliff lines, and like little ribbon footpaths and tons of sea life, and we just anchored there for a week with these other friends, so I loved that. And I told you at the beginning about the library in Kuwabara Puerto Rico, and I of that little island as well. We didn't ever go to see the bioluminescence that's so famous over there and Puerto Rico, but what is that even know they they have these places where you can just like kayak through in every every paddle will just bring up these like light and sparkles from the bioluminescence.

"It seemed like I don't you? Right. Like, I've never been and your your guys that were there walking around. All the press came out of it. Like, it was just it was just a fantasy shows like all just future concepts, and and and technology, and and other than the Masa that you call that you talked about is there any production. Geneva, all like what we've got these grandiose ideas, and and not law to be on this. No, I mean, some Europeans. Okay. Ferrari began. Efate tribute which actually collect collectors listening. This is likely to be the last ever. I mean, we had the last naturally aspirated very Ferrari and in the full five eight this is probably the last non hybrid purely gasoline ferrall reveal eight which is the FHA Buta which which is a four eighty eight. You know, for does this thing where they they launch vehicle like they did with the three sixty became the full thirty. Yeah. And so they do like a halfway which is more than a facelift, but not quite a new model. This is this is why this car is the F H two Buteau. And that that probably is the lot that this is the last purely gasoline v eight Ferrari. That's good. If you're a collector is probably not a bad one to buy all white for the white for the special or whatever they call it version. Yes. Some of it now, listen, we we like for our as for for at least one of the reasons is always been the sound. You know, the the exhaust tuning the flat plane crank and things like that. So. Whatever they decide to do. They're going to have to keep that in mind, right? They're going to do some sort of hybrid version and part gas part electric. They're gonna have to. Still go with probably some kind of very cool. Great sounding flat plane crank v eight or some version of it, even if it has electric occasion into we still want to be able to to have that sound, right. It's true. I mean injury. And then we knew we had a Hurricane Bertha Monte spider last week. And I took it up the up into the hills and Costa vita naturally, I sprayed and his face back in time. You just hear the noise, and you realize how much that kind of visceral excitement part of the experience and on the road. You can't go supervise anyway. So it's about and this is why classy Cal because he's having the experience very low speeds the hurricane kind of says that up because he's so noisy. And and and you don't need to go faster that no noise e we can just drive around Beverly Hills and make a bunch of noise in that car, exactly. Yeah. People do. But, but you know, this is this. This is the biggest of the Ferrari I like the four eight eight, but it doesn't sound as good as a full five. Just doesn't. Okay. Interesting. What do you think? What do you think is going to be the next sort of like we caught in the electric car world? We've got the test. We've got a couple of newcomers. We've got Jag. I kinda like what they're doing with that. And but is there going to be one that sort of takes over is it going to be something from Audi is it going to be take hand from from Porsche is who's going to be the next cell hundred thousand units. I think what we're starting to see Kells from you know, Hyundai Kona electric when all editor's choice award. That's a that's a great great vehicle..
