I didn't thought there was going to be a ride and weeks ago I signed in for a fishing trip by the toll bridge in Freeport with my fellows from the church. I like how that ride looks but to me the weather is not helping. You guys enjoy the ride.

Well... much as I hate to say it, looks like tomorrow is gonna be a wash. All the weather channels are showing high chance of thunderstorms all day. :doh:
Yeah, I saw the same thing. It's raining up here in Conroe right now. Says up to 80% tomorrow morning. So, I'm going to the Astros game tomorrow with the family.

Weird.. I could see your hurricane map when I opened this thread on my phone, but can't see it on the computer. :shrug:
I was going to say that it's because Google has three levels of security for viewing pictures: 1) anyone can see it, 2) only those who are logged into Google and 3) only the owner. But, I completely logged out of Google and signed back into TWTEX and I can still see it, so it must be set up as #1 above.

Honestly, I am beyond trying to explain how Google security and photo sharing works.

The hat amplifies the wi-fi. Google changes things with their security consistently and, if you’re not logged into one of their sites, you may see pictures and may not. The pics I reposted for you didn’t have a direct link url that ended with a format descriptor this site will accept (.jpg, .jpeg, etc.). I had to save them, upload them to photobucket (yeah I still need to find another hosting site), copy PB’s direct link, and paste it into the box that pops up when you hit the icon that looks like a mountain with the sun over it. PB has multiple options to share photos. One is the url with img on either end and, if you try to just copy that one and paste it in a post, you’ll get their generic image of a camera saying the image isn’t available (unless a fix has been implemented on your device). You have to use the direct link and paste it into the pop up box from that icon I mentioned to get it to display. If the photo hosting sites weren’t so greedy, this wouldn’t be that complicated.

Yeah, I used the same method when I had PB (and Smugmug too), but Dropbox doesn't seem to like to play the same way. I tried with Amazon Photo too, but same result. I guess everything is becoming more proprietary.
