    Here's something strange. We live on the East coast.I came home at 1:30pm, EDT, on the 4th of July. The wife said our dogs were not eating, and they were acting very strange, as if they were afraid of something. When she let them go outside, they wouldn't do their doggy business, but instead, ran back on the house. Instead of the usual jumping and running around, when I came in, they just stuck to.my leg, like a shadow. We proceeded to the living room, where the two small dogs, jumped in the recliner, with my wife, as usual. Our shephard immediately climbed into my chair with me, and sat on my lap, where he refused to move for two hours. My wife said he had been sitting in my chair all morning. He has never done this before. Around 330pm EDT, one of our smaller dogs, got out of the chair, sniffed around the floor, and indicated that she wanted to go out. This led to all three dogs going out. Each one carefully sniffed the ground before setting foot off the steps. Is it possible that they felt the eathquake and tremors from the west coast, that struck at 1033 am pst?

    Possibly. Here in the Midwest, it has always been said when a tornado is in the area, the birds seem to know, and if you don’t see them, you best take cover.

    Here on the Eastcoast, when we see birds flying 74+ mph, we know there's a hurricane in the area

    You may be right, we had a "muskeeter" land at our airport, they put in 30 gal. of fuel before realizing it was not
    a helicopter.

    I took a load of sand to Engelhard NC. I asked the man where he got the odd looking chickens. He said, "I ain't got no chickens. Thems is skeeters".

    My understanding is the agreement between yrc, and the NWS, is part of the corporate, synergies that will generate more cash.
