Carlotta becomes hurricane off western Mexico

The storm known as Carlotta has intensified into a hurricane off the western coast of Mexico, the National Hurricane Center said Friday.

A storm becomes a hurricane when it produces sustained winds of 74 mph. A hurricane warning was in effect for parts of the Pacific coast of Mexico, from the seaport city of Salina Cruz to Punta Maldonado.

    I rear-ended another car this morning. I tell you, I knew right then and there that it was going to be a really bad day.
    The driver got out of the other car, and wouldn't you know it!
    He was a dwarf!! He looked up at me and said, "I am 'Not Happy.'
    So I said, "Well, then, which one are you?"

    And, that's how the fight started.

      Bobcat, I haven't been on for a while, but I look forward to your jokes. This one made me laugh so hard I scared the cat. I'm on lunch break now. Tell all the usual suspects that I said "Howdy."

    And I take offence to that "joke". I'm going to come over there, stand on a chair, and punch you in the kneecap.

      Dear Mr. dwarf

      If you don't mind, I prefer the UMBRAGE over offense. Your cooperation on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

      Don't talk to me about UMBRAGE. I bought one once, but it was too long for me to carry, so I just get wet when it rains.

    How are you?
    How is Powder, besides being scared?

    Lol. Keep em coming!
    First post I read today, and it made me smile.

    I hope some much-needed rain results from Carlotta.
    The SW could use a little help!
