For folks not in the area we had a nasty storm, tornado damage south side of the bay area two folks dead, a number of homes damaged / destroyed.

Tornados are not often very strong here but el Nino makes our winters go nuts.

Hope all the local folks are doing ok.

Wow. I've never seen waves that big.... That can be good or bad for the aquaculture site. Good if it clears away all the sand that has been encroaching on it. Bad if it dumps more. If it's the latter and you need help digging the rock out just give me a shout.

FINALLY, I'm seeing some light at the end of the tunnel from the Holidays and being back to work. I was just swamped, I couldn't hardly keep up with any personal projects. I will have that video done asap. Sorry for the delay.

Yeah, this fall/winter has been crazy, first staying hot the rain and now the storms and the tornado watches....

My jaw fish have no idea how lucky they are in my tank, out there they would really have a hard time maintaining their burrows!
