    What does the blue shed refer to ?

    In Hurricane Harvey, Jeff ended up sheltering under a car wash. Parked up behind a wall and under a roof (which eventually gave out), his dash cam was pointing at a blue shed. Naturally, the internet started obsessing over it's continuing survival, and then the stream cut out. 

    Many wanted to know the fate of the shed, and then a reporter filmed a segment at the car wash a little while after the storm. It survived.

    Hence, the blue shed is a bit like Hector the Palm Tree, and is short hand for flimsy shelter that survives a storm like Chuck Norris in childrens tea party.

    Wow thanks Crimsone !! Yes I picked up on the Harvey the Palm tree thing ! It's blowing a hoolie here but from having followed this Irma for pretty much three days now, kind of puts things into perspective. I can't thank everyone enough on here for all the fantastic links and posts. I'm really not getting much done!! Its only the strong gusts that we are having here now that has torn me away from the web...Just had to bring a few bits in and put the parasol down...

    Would you really put it past the internet to track down those responsible for both the shed and the tree, and plead for their immortalisation?

    The Jeff Piotriowski stream seems to be repeating a two minute clip atm, anyone else getting that?

     

    Looks like an average December day in Inverness thus far :p

    I'm watching the live stream and it's not on loop. I think he's driving back to Naples or Marco Island?

    I mind the January (2015?) storm where we had 100mph winds here and you were in a very hairy situation. That was more than plenty for us I think - don't envy any of those who get 130mph winds!

    WXChasing are awaiting landfall, and appear to be *on* marco island.

    Either they're braver than Jeff, more stupid than Jeff, or know something that Jeff doesn't.
