Today doctor Gray's predicting a less. Busy season if you will of course is we've been saying it only takes one to cause some big problems. I think I think the first thing out like it is today as skiers there's anything substantially changed. Since Katrina in the last ten years fires hurricanes safety. No it would they've been mentioned some attention to a lot with the exception. There are some of politics that or available for home school what do action. There's also some different part without involved in all of this will be missed cut. What some and much easier faster than just all the you know there's been telescope in a battle Chalmers had normal like localized port complex laws that rule. But they're also sure others. Worse the track of them are our conscience vote would be taught a group. There could be the by sensitive static. Nature. Had been on the YouTube with Clinton but as well do it all sorts of since Katrina. It will result would actually. Our feathered ones and not that sort of protected. Known that you have these a world boss would be what. It means everything to blow it up quick group. It's certain crude compared with a bit. I don't chain is only as strong as it's weakest link gay and it may have been Petrino or rising one of them I was born not born a neighbor said. You know much take care that arise Stewart who was it happened as a garage doors gonna come off an onerous and come off the house a new windows assume we boarded up. So what are some of the weak links when it comes to prepare in your house for hurricane. It in the android reference to vote their cries out here that have caused that is something that it is quite. But like that does describe what he's beat up when they fail. Again locally available installed. Over and collage the wars in a minute that that two of the telescope saw. A date at those available for 12 go on the important will it. So that you're concerned about their claws in deep concern to that group of employees. In the battle to something that in the art world. And then come right haven't opened your routes and have that additional outlet. Troubled me about your way. There's a window wards of the world war restore. Those of the week that would look at it. Denny's to take people window opener is that for tornado a little cracked for the pressure. That. I heard that certain that by the court in I would come back. Big twelve elections could be critical of the August incident are. Yeah yeah. Noted talk about this more we come back and if you have any questions about generators or anything to six 18 ceremony and nine I have jokingly said because when it happens here we go to the mattresses they here's songs it takes to covered and we. Willie I rarely utters seldom a lot of us have time to board up and Aso think that you know what it's a flood it's gonna get to anyways so why even bother bit with the higher hurricane deductibles I would think Paul. It really would deal lot of good to board up because of a tree goes through you window chances are you may not meet. That I don't know would you meet that deductible or would that be considered a wind event. Though it. It would have been hurt me and perk it is. What are called class a part of her name's been probably yeah. And when it went good good which are in development and acceptance of what goes far. But you know typically aren't. So we really are flawed in win since accumulated. Other than what it could be gauntlet that. And changes needed to that deductible after Katrina. Means you may even break in I think questions 2601 mates at any polar ranger again as the hurricane forecast comes out today from Noah. And in any question about generators or anything else sees exit points Anthony 23 time with them that well.

So Paul when it comes it to generators. Days have as the price of them come down. The efficiency. And go on not telling with the latest is on either whole house or portable generators. But the public rhetoric served in the state. Aren't going in and speakers. As well call but the whole post generators could boost because of trying a little bit. There there fuel efficiency has to include. It in there and the you know the thing about the need to look at these sort generated conviction for limited government also. In the in the lecture so they're younger and their partner or partners there. You'd you'd wanna look at work and who you're drinkable wines and accurate with their mobile unit or report a standalone. On Old Dominion. You know what most people of their cobra or. Part of the bar one law ordered. Sort of an expert but when you're shopping court governor. That your look at one oh who would your would your part or all of that governor and the producers and what what are all of which you could look. We could use it better but you also want to get out of the cup order. A local all you want coupled. With the technical. And all of that capacity is well on. At full power and it it. You'll be disappointed and so all forms in its. It is useful like historical and along comes a point. I 2000 square foot house assume that's an average of people are listening. Mechanic generator which cited talk about. And what kind of cost. You're looking. It. Is you're remote. Computer call everything. Look at all of what the problem about.

A tonic action and year insurance leaving ticket and sold to our team will come back gate 31 time for Devin WL. Offers news and for that we goat to Dave public you know David we do substantial audience research in this has grown into one of the most popular features that we do. It's called the hash tag hero. On the way. Makes its joining us we are getting ready to announce that as tank. Now hero of the week here on WW balances in the second guess. Well wait a moment.

I'd like you were gonna announcement you know I am in the second getting it's partners and when it was announced through in the meeting up at stake here on the way. You didn't lose your copy judging. Clearly it was. You did you lose your here's Aaron had to guess that'd. As a second break you know. Lenders lewis' in the back of their guests and definitely well thank Tommy Tucker WL 84713. Before nine hour. Apologies and the sake on Larry and we realize Kevin Davis is coming on director of the governor's office of Homeland Security. An emergency preparedness in morning Kevin. Good morning primary use I'm miles and you. Good good for you on this important messages centered on discussion. Well thanks to take in the time this obviously we're not going to be. You know god forbid hit by hurricane on June 2 but this is. Hurricane preparedness week and as a reason for that is Kevin even if you don't get it done this week you need to be aware of it. That's correct yeah I mean I know everybody has been honest about. I assume ago or web page you're thinking planned out or in that help you through preparation process. We have a lot of information there that you are useful. To tell you all items that you should do be prepared. On that just did to refresh people in there and their mind. I I guess the parameters or or the rule would tipping point and if you will for when to evacuate when not to evacuate is that strictly yeah. You know a personal decision if he's somebody category one category two and some of the things that enter into that decision making process. That's correct yeah I mean a lot of people double digit growth gears in them if they're outside levee protection and honorable. So it's always important to make sure there mention to folks like shall from the local yeah. To get that information that the local officials will be putting out on their merge operations in those areas that they want. Someone to evacuate and so it's critical. Are to make sure you're monitoring. That it should. If you think. People are more worried about getting in after a storm and then they are about riding out the potential consequences of written. Now a lot of people on the West Bank after I get in Tuesday Kevin Donovan resides sicker than one. After that but in the Euro and other powers out for about a week and this is a relatively minor storm but. For her for all intents and purposes other than losing a home they could have been a category what effort to leave his without power for a week in the the hottest time of the years soak as yet thing about both of those. Yes that's correct and I you know like just want folks you know that our goal is to get servers are all that recovery process. But sometimes there are dangerous situation below determination. But I know we communicate with the local Berkshire's constantly. Already this year and I know it's almost in their minds to give the residents are stresses cure. So I think you'll see you know that this collection. Correctly and if we needed activity to get spokesman quickly. I capitalists say again. And even if you don't do everything this week and I don't think we can reasonably expect everybody to. It later into the season again July can be active. Keep in mind it BO website for some resource thank you care and you met him today Kevin Davis director of the governor's office of Homeland Security. An emergency preparedness ghosts that is the acronym in beginning game plan or 85010 point nine got some tickets point. Rhythm the year that you know about it. In a minute rhinos hampered other WL traffic a 56 Tommy Tucker we're talking about spying on. Your significant other a new study out says that. 62%. Of men admitted to going through their significant others phone. 31% of people's they've they would dump someone who did it. And would you go through your partner's own lower wage you dump them. Because of the fact that they did. And to be honest it Ebbers knew derby in snoop on it in one of the hardest things in the world. Is when it's money either did or significant others that you deeply want to try August. But and you get this little Angel on one shoulders and you get that little dimple on the other as depicted cartoons. Telling you yes well you never know look look what you don't know what the route to confirm yours is patience. Any yet the other ones and you know what if you don't trust him point you even with them. Where feature kids while I don't Q. Much even throw why do you even trust them in any area of their lives. And maybe Anderson that on the you don't want to know about. So we'll talk about that as well what it's goes through your mind when it comes on comes to its new being. Oiler checking out invading somebody's privacy. And I found this interesting one happened in. Tom Ireland where a national referendum. Approved. Gay married same sex marriage and no we've done a lottery issues of about eight people in same sex marriage but it. Having been lucky enough to go to Ireland. If you go to things you in the eye and guarantee you're Tennessean Ireland callebs in Catholic church's. Because that's. An integral part of the Irish life silent and trying to the end gunners there who won it say that if it's even a word about. The hardest is it's true it's not a stereotype they are all over it and the people like the beer over the aerial or a pint of Guinness. And considering that the country is overwhelmingly. Roman Catholic they have. Same sex marriage approved by more than 62% of the voters. Surprised me. Because I know it's Europe now is there writing in this sense of any. Particularly. Live rule. Bands. I heard one negative comment. From a bus driver but he union is an older guy and get that Tom. But it surprises me in the Vatican made a comment. And said Vietnam. It was a com said today for the Catholic Church that it was a defeat for humanity. And the archbishop of Dublin. From the says that the church needs to do a reality check after 62% of the people in Ireland voted to allow same sex marriage. So you know Irish bishop of doberman basically saying. Just like the Boy Scouts and the discussion we had that. You know the attitudes things are changing and and blue you better get ready Ford you better adapt to it because. It is. Common and you can either dig your heels in and maybe have a lot of people stuck on a church or you change your policy and become little more accepting of it but then that brings up the question of is their absolute right is their absolute wrong or you just trying to get customers and trying to get butts in the pews. Singh talk about that if you want as well at T 601870. And maybe tomorrow will take on the issue love when it comes to controversy. Very important. Changes to society abortion. The same sex marriage do you trust to even obamacare do you trust. The Supreme Court to make these decisions or should they are being national referendums on these. Welcome back Tommy Tucker double have you.
