Title: My Crazy-Ass Local Weather
Post by: RVR II on January 28, 2009, 09:07:38 AM
www.thefuckingweather.com


The crazy weather lately from Thunderstorms to Freezing precipitation kinda got me started with this thread..
Also, I am a Weather Nut! Like 'Dusty' in the movie 'Twister'.. I would've Loved to be a Storm Chaser but reality took me down another career path..
I was in Hurricane Hugo in Charleston, SC back in Sept. 1989, and I Loved It!! That was the Most Intense adrenaline rush I've ever had! >:D

Anyway, it's currently 65 degrees and storms are on the way, with a possibility of frozen precipitation later tonight.. :scared:

Hmmm, having lived in Tulsa, OK (tornado alley), St. Louis Missouri (freaking cold weather), I can say that I love the weather in Houston more. 

Sure, you get an odd hurricane every so often, but at least I know I wont get snow or freezing rain.

Yep when I'm slipping and sliding in slush and I try to clean nasty salt rich crud off my car windows I can't tell you how appealing Texas seems.

Can't say I miss Texas' weather much. Having 11 months of summer with maybe one month's (if we were lucky) worth of non-summer type weather in a year's time sucked ass, especially when it'd be a humid 85 degrees on Christmas day. The only thing I miss are the thunderstorms, the mildest of which in Tx make the most severe of which here in NM look like picnic weather.

Solution?  Collect the snow where it's going to snow these next 6 weeks, contain it, ship it down to where the drought is.  Release.  Melt/Spray.  Problem solved.

Currently 4 inches and still accumulating..

The winds are supposed to kick up to between 20 - 30 mph overnight, so there's a possability of losing power as well if a tree(s) fall :scared:

It's snowing in Lancaster Pa right now.  The forecast is calling for 6 to 8 inches total by the time it's through.  So far the grass is just about to be covered and the snow doesn't look like it's going to let up any time soon.
Title: Re: My Local Weather Forcast is...
Post by: RVR II on March 02, 2009, 05:54:54 AM
Currently, 28 degrees with about 5 inches total accumulation from last night..

With a high of only 38 today, there won't be much melting, and tonights low of 13 degrees, I ain't goin Nowhere, but I know some dumbasses will venture out and get stuck in a ditch er something ::)

I'll be sure to check out tomorrow morning's local news..

Yeah, there's Oaks Everywhere, and most of them average between 80-100 years old.. There were alot more 100+ year old trees till Hurricane Hugo 'bowled through the area and took out about 60 to 70% of them back in September, 1989
My vacant lot has 5) 50-60 year old oaks, 1) 75 year old oak and I have 1) 100+ year old oak (I used to have another one but had to bring it down back in 2006 cause it was leaning towards my house pretty bad) and they're all infested with squirrels, but yeah, it's really cool looking around here 8)

We got about 8 inches of snow here yesterday. I have to drive back to NYC tomorrow morning so that should be fun, but it's still very pretty to see. At least the road in front of our house is clear.

This is a pretty big deal for us here in southeastern Pennsylvania. We rarely get even a little snow before January, so to actually have this much is kind of exciting.

I love it too, only it's been timed just right here in NM ever since I moved here to snow exclusively on weekdays, only when I'm at work, and as much around Christmas as possible (never on it). The one time it did snow on a weekend where normally I could just enjoy it, I had to get to the airport downtown (and the flight got canceled after it took 3 hours to get there through all the ice). Needless to say, it's turned into a love/hate thing.

Yes!  I love snow too. I think my favorite is sunset on a field full of snow, where the whole place turns orange and then purple.  It's fucking awesome.

I love it when it's snowing, and I love it when it's snowed and cold out and creaks and squeaks under your feet.

The only thing I DON'T like is when it melts and gets slushy.

If you love snow so much then why don't you marry it?

It hardly ever snows here and it's been the coldest winter for the past 30 years.  We don't really prepare for any kinds of extreme weather, so this kind of thing screws us over (or gives most people a snow day).  And a Christmas Carol is set in a time before the millions and millions of cars choked up the roads and horses could get you to work.   :)

I knew that the Gulfstream helped keep things nice there....

It's just that you take anything warm far enough north and it will cool down...

It snowed here.  Britain ground to a halt.

 ???  I don't get that....

Every production of "A Christmas Carol" the snow is piled high off to the side.  Just assumed it always snows there at some point during winter
It hardly ever snows here and it's been the coldest winter for the past 30 years.  We don't really prepare for any kinds of extreme weather, so this kind of thing screws us over (or gives most people a snow day).  And a Christmas Carol is set in a time before the millions and millions of cars choked up the roads and horses could get you to work.   :)
Yeah, I would have thought that Britain would have boatloads of snow, too. My daughter is in Germany and we have more snow in Pennsylvania than she does. Weird.

Yep I hardly ever saw snow around Christmas until I moved to Michigan. It was nice for a couple of winters....\

Now Scotland, they get snow.

Well it's been lightly snowing since early afternoon.  And I guess people in North Georgia don't bother with snow tires?

We're here on the corner of where one street meets another in a "T".  Both ways are slightly inclined and people are having trouble big time getting past them.  One even called a tow truck because they back slid (the truck driver walked to the car and backed it back up to our corner for them instead).

So much so that some people are leaving their cars here and walking the rest of the way!

"an accumulator"?

I don't know...I think that's bogus.  I mean you did say that the odds that you guys get snow are pretty slim.  The guy bet against the odds and he won.  If this company can't handle that someone won a long shot, they shouldn't be in the business.

Also if they sell a ticket by accident for a bet that they can't cover.

Yeah, an accumulator is where you bet on more than one thing, like a series of football matches and all of them have to win, but the odds on each one are multiplied.  I think he matched sports with the weather thingy, which somehow isn't in the rules.  And I don't think this matters anyway, but fun fact about how bookies pay out on a white christmas? Snow has to fall on the MET Office weather centre.

Noticed that my water pressure was near zero, checked outside, checked the neighbors and did not see any water gushing.    Called the water company and they said they had a water main break they were working on.

Woke up early this AM to a house filled with smoke.  Our hot water heater is burning oil.  So I had to shut it off.  No heat or hot water for us til the guy comes and fixes it.  Hopefully it's nothing major since we just had a new one put in 3 years ago. 

Fortunately we could send the kids to daycare today since it's a bit cold in the house.

Are space heaters still the fire bugs they once were? You hear about so many fires starting because of space heaters, but is that from older, more faulty models or are new space heaters just as dangerous as the old ones?

I ask because in my apartment we have gas heat, and in an effort to cut down on gas prices we keep the heat off most of the time and use a space heater when we're all in one room (which we usually are). Our electric bill is a little higher but it's still cheaper than burning gas.

What the hell kind of weird-ass winter do you have? Winter = no humidity.

My grasp of meteorology isn't the best but I know it was about 40 F with almost 90% humidity last evening, making the car, and ground, and everything else all wet, and it was about 25 F and windy this morning, thus freezing said wetness on virtually every outdoor surface. Thankfully the massive amounts of salt the DPW has dumped everywhere for the past two months kept the roads from becoming vast, pothole-infested skating rinks.

Once while living in Tulsa there were funnel clouds reported and the local channels had some super doplar radar that could follow the clouds on a street level.   They cut in during a basketball game to announce that anyone living in the 91st and Memorial area should seek immediate shelter.   Since that is EXACTLY where I lived, I did the smart thing of going into the back yard to look at the rotating clouds as they sailed by overhead.

Charlotte area could see 1 to 4 inches of snow, sleet Saturday
Staff reports - Charlotte Observer

Another in a series of winter storm systems is expected to spread a mix of rain, snow, sleet and freezing rain into the Charlotte metro region late Friday and Saturday.

While it is still too early to know how much precipitation will fall, and how much of it will be frozen, forecasters say they expect accumulations in much of the area.

The National Weather Service has not yet talked about snowfall amounts in the immediate Charlotte area, but meteorologist Bryan McAvoy of the Weather Service's office in Greer said Wednesday morning that 4 to 8 inches of snow are possible along the Interstate 40 corridor, including Statesville and Hickory. Lesser amounts, he said, would fall to the south of there. Forecasters from Pennsylvania-based Accu-Weather said Wednesday morning that the immediate Charlotte area could receive 1 to 4 inches of snow and sleet.

The winter storm will be a jarring change in what is expected to be a pleasant weather pattern today and Thursday.

High pressure and mild temperatures are forecast for the area, with today's highs in the lower 50s and Thursday's highs around 60 degrees.

But then temperatures will come crashing downward.

A strong high pressure system expected to move into the Middle Atlantic area will push colder air into the Carolinas late Thursday and early Friday. At the same time, a storm system currently affecting California is predicted to move eastward into the Gulf of Mexico, then slide across Florida and up the East Coast.

The storm system will send precipitation into the cold air covering the Carolinas.

Recent computer trends have indicated that the bulk of the precipitation will fall along the Gulf Coast, which would limit the impact of the storm system in the Carolinas. But forecasters still aren't sure.

The Weather Service's McAvoy called the various computer outlooks for sleet and snowfall "an unholy mess," saying it will be later today or possibly even early Thursday before meteorologists have a better idea of what will happen.

The precipitation is expected to begin as a cold rain Friday afternoon, with temperatures only in the upper 30s. Snow and sleet are predicted to gradually mix with the rain overnight Friday, and then the precipitation is expected to change to all snow sometime Saturday.

The mentality seems to be: "Hm. There's something on the road.  Well, better floor it.  Oh, I need to slow down...better stomp on the brakes.  Oh dear, I am surprised that I have careened off the road into a ditch.  I blame the snow!"

OK.. Hail is formed high up in he atmosphere (where it is below freezing) inside a strong to severe thunderstorm (30,000-50,000 feet) and depending on how strong the updraft winds are in a thunderstorm, determines how large the hail stones will be before gravity eventually wins and they fall to earth..

Sleet is basically rain that freezes on it's way to the ground when the temperatures are above 32 degrees in the atmosphere, but below 32 degrees near the surface and depending how high from the ground the freezing temperatures are, determines if it will be sleet or freezing rain  8)

Hail is formed high up in he atmosphere (where it is below freezing) inside a strong to severe thunderstorm (30,000-50,000 feet) and depending on how strong the updraft winds are in a thunderstorm, determines how large the hail stones will be before gravity eventually wins and they fall to earth..

Sleet is basically rain that freezes on it's way to the ground when the temperatures are above 32 degrees in the atmosphere, but below 32 degrees near the surface and depending how high from the ground the freezing temperatures are, determines if it will be sleet or freezing rain  8)

I love the moments when RVR stops being all boobies and emoticons and becomes all information and emoticons. :)

It was supposed to snow 6"-12" inches last night but we woke up and there wasn't anything on the ground.  Now it's sleeting and snowing.  Looking out the window here in my "home office" into the back yard and all I can see is white.  Well, that and where the squirrels got one last dig into the patio furniture cushions last night to reinsulate their nests again.

I've been sitting in dread since yesterday evening, waiting for the big snowstorm.  I don't really care what happens tommorrow.  I don't have anywhere to go (I had planned to go to that neat pawn shop I just found out about, but that can wait until next week I guess).  It's the drive home today that worries me.  Luckily, I leave in 38 minutes and the snow hasn't started yet.

Snowstorms are kinda fun when you don't have anywhere to go though.  You just watch it come down and pile up.  I also have a little fun shovelling it.  Makes me feel manly.

I like that too.  It's like, the perfect gauge (well, except for actual measuring equipment) to see how deep it is.  The chair complements it well, being totally buried.

Incidentally, this is at least as bad as the big snowstorm of 2003.  Maybe worse.  The snow is 20 inches deep when I measured it about 45 minutes ago, and still coming down.

But for winter storms, I don't think they'll ever get worse than the ice storm of 1994.

Incredible!
Yeah, we had 18 inches here back around the 3rd week of February, 2004 (Not long after the Panthers Super Bowl loss in fact) and I dug my truck out and threw it all in the back bed and rode around with it for a week and a half till I just got tired of it not melting fast enough, so I drove to my old work parking lot, put my tailgate down, put the truck in reverse and got up to about 25 mph and slammed on the brakes, and out the whole pile went :D :D

Not really, the stores get pretty wiped out, but they are clearing this stuff out pretty fast to they should be restocked tomorrow.  At least it was light and fluffy, that big storm in '96 it was 30+ inches of heavy wet snow, took all day just to dig out the car and they had to bring in earth moving equipment to clear some of the roads... 

Not too many people without power near me, but the folks out in South Jersey are hurting, some towns have 70% of the people without power.  The news is saying all the stores are out of batteries.  They got more freezing rain over there that's breaking the lines.

Now they are talking about another 8 inches mid week, this area is just not used to this much snow, we just had what's now the 3rd biggest storm ever (23 inches) back in December.  Number 2 and 3 in the same winter, crazy...

I don't know if we've ever lost power.  Not as far back as I can remember, and that includes the unforgettable ice storm of 1994.  We did get a rather severe cold snap later on in the winter of 1994.  We lost heat, and it got so cold that the water in the dog's bowl and in the toilets froze.  We had to move in to a motel for a few days.  That's one of my fondest memories actually.  Sort of, the family banded together during a crisis and it brought us closer.  That was also the year my dad was in the hospital.  I don't know how my mom ever made it through that year.

Oh don't say that. What area?   What's your source?  Weather.com says that we'll have highs in the mid-30s Monday and Tuesday, so we should get some melt.  I do see snow showers (high of 31, 40% chance of precipitation), but that's such an open-ended term that says nothing about accumulation totals.  I guess if another storm hits midweek I'm checking in to a hotel close to work.  My commute is 70-90 minutes in good weather.

It was the local TV weather guys, but one of them finally said it's worst case scenario, 2 lows have to merge for it to happen, and based on how the winter has been going so far they are betting it will....

Yeah this snow is pretty severe.  This snow (http://www.snopes.com/photos/natural/oswego.asp) is worse.

Now that's some serious snow, but places that get that much have the equipment to deal with it...  I grew up in New England and a storm like the one we just got would not be as big a deal as it is around Philly.

But for winter storms, I don't think they'll ever get worse than the ice storm of 1994.

I remember that storm. I was eight months pregnant with my second daughter and my first daughter was only little more than a year old. I think we stayed in for three weeks straight.

They're calling for about 6-12 inches of snow over the next 24 hours. Of course, they use the qualifier "up to", so... who knows how much we'll really get. But, this is western Michigan, so we get that Lake Effect snow and 6-12 inches is not unheard of. But they're saying this isn't gonna be Lake Effect, just a blizzard kickin' it old school I guess.

I can't seem to find the close up radar map, but it's looking like your area is going to see 6 inches at most.  Only the Philadelphia and Wilmington areas are going to get accumulations above 12 inches; it's less the further south you go.  As I recall, you live near the state fairgrounds, way in the middle of Sussex County.

The TV reports are focusing more on the urban areas, so that's why you're seeing the 12-20 figure so much.
Title: Re: My Local Weather Forcast is...

I live near the fair grounds but i am in the middle of Kent county and every radar map I have seen shows one of the worst parts of the storm right over my head lattter tonight.  I am not panicing and it doesn't really upset me,it's just going to be a pain in the neck for the next week or so.  Also if we get another 6 inches on top of what we have the roads will be down and there is a good chance that the power will go off. As i said I am not upset I am just saying it is going to be a pain if we get anything near what they are calling for.

Right now, if you look at the forecast for the Philadelphia area, there is a big red circle bullseye where there are supposed to be 14-20 inches, and I live smack in the middle of it.  We have inches on the ground already.

This winter sucks.

Got in to work after a somewhat scary trip in from the hotel.  Took a back street because I was afraid of what the traffic would look like on the main roads.

The street looked like it had been plowed, but some new accumulation left the roads a little snowy.  I went too fast (30 mph) at one point and ended up skidding around almost running in to a ditch.  I didn't brake, as that seems to make skids worse.  I shifted in to the lowest gear (I drive an automatic transmission, but those two lower gears, confusingly named '3' and 'L' are I think there for this purpose) and just made moderate steering corrections.  I think that if I'd never been in that situation before, panic would have set in and I would've crashed.

Still a little concerned about the accumulation today and the trip back to the hotel.  Fortunately I'll be able to check traffic and maybe use the main roads.

When I used to live in St. Louis and had to deal with snow, I always put my automatic transmission car in a very low gear, and the key was, NEVER to stop.   Even at lights, slowed down enough ahead of time so I could keep the car at least moving forward a bit.

Well the snow is starting to die down.  It's still coming down but it is slower then before.  We got about a foot and half today,that is on top of the almost two feet that were still on the groud,also the wind gusts are suposed to keep up for the next day or so so we still could lose power.

Which will be interesting for them, because they're definitely not ready for a winter storm.  I don't think it'll be as bad as either of the storms we got, and the temperatures should rise more quickly and melt the snow.  But I think we're out of the woods.

We don't know what March and the 2nd half of February could bring.

I just checked the 10 day forecast for Newark and Harrington (you live in Harrington, right?).  They're calling for 10 days of sun and highs in the mid-30s.  We shouldn't be getting any new snow, and the slop we currently have will start melting off.

You're gonna have to give me a source, a link or something, because I have checked the 10 day forecast for several cities in the northeast, and I'm seeing no sign of snow until MAYBE next Friday.

My home of Newark, DE, for example, is forecasting sunny skies, highs in the mid 30s until the 18th.  Paradoxically, it's saying "few snow showers" and "scattered snow showers" for the 19th and 20th, but with highs around 40.  That says to me a mild dusting similar to what we got the Saturday before last.

Much better money is on a snowstorm moving through the south.

We're supposed to start getting above freezing so everything from the past two weeks will start melting and then by Monday we're supposed to be down in the single-digits again so what melts can re-freeze all over the place.  I've still got big drifts of snow as well as sheets of ice where I can see the grass in my backyard through them.  Once all this melts we'll get flooding....I just know it.....

Now that we're out of the woods, my mind keeps staggering at what happened.  We had a huge snowstorm yesterday.  We had another one recently before that.  Not a week or two before, but FOUR DAYS before.

Or to think another way, we had a huge snowstorm on Saturday, and then four days later we had more snow.  Not a light snow, but A FUCKING BLIZZARD.

Two huge storms in less than a week. 

Not to mention that we had light snowfall three days before the first big storm, and some light snow four days before that.

I remember the winter of 1998.  I don't think the temperature ever dipped below 40 degrees that year.  We had flurries one night in late February, and when that happened I thought I was hallucinating.

Now cleanup has begun, and I'm staggered by the huge 6 - 10 foot high mounds of snow around.

I had to cancel plans last Saturday, rescheduled until this coming Saturday.  Now when I think about it, I won't go out on Saturday and think "Nice day.  Remember when we had that big storm a week ago?"  I'll be thinking about the big storm we had 3 days ago.

Digging out today was pretty hard, the snow melted down to about 8 inches, making it really hard to move.  My town has always been pretty good at putting salt down, but today the roads all had a coating of packed snow and no salt....

Bunch of roof collapses, one guy died when his porch collapsed.

A roof on a school gymnasium collapsed here because of the snow and it makes me wonder....

These aren't areas that never get snow.  Happens every year to different degrees. There's building codes that say things have to be built to withstand earthquakes (unless you're in Haiti), or hurricane winds but there's no rules about how much weight roofs must be able to take because of snowfall?

That makes NO sense.

There's probably some code, but I'm sure it's for just over a standard bad storm, not 2 of the worst storms ever in one week....

I know on newer buildings they know exactly how much weight they can take, and have to get up there and remove it when it gets close.  Then there's the problem of figuring out how much the snow up there weighs, the weekend storm it was 28 inches of light fluffy stuff, this was half that many inches but it probably weighed 3 times as much.

They said the one building in Delaware collapsed because it was all blown to one side of the roof forming a heavy drift in one spot.

The wal mart my mom works at has been closed for a week now it has never had to close for snow before and it is up to code but there just is no way to make a roof that will be 100% safe with three to four feet of snow on top and heavy winds.

So why can't they build some kind of heating into the roof the way they can put heating elements under the floorboards?   Or shouldn't part of building maintenance (if we're talking about a place like a gymnasium or a store and it's safe enough) be to go up there clearing the snow that's accumulating?  I mean, if you have leaves choking your gutters or water settled on the roof (as those with flat tar roofs would after a hurricane used to) you wouldn't just leave it sit and just hope that it doesn't damage things.

Well first of all the roads are in too bad of shape for anyone to drive on them.  Second they are closed so there is a $500 fine for anyone out on them.  Third the winds are too strong to work safely.  Fourth most of the time when it snows this much the power goes out so what are heaters going to run off of?  Fifth it only snows this much once every ten years or so down here.  maybe we should also require all buildings to with stand a blast fromm a laser from Mars while we are at it.

No one has been killed or hurt by a roof caving in.  The only roofs that have falling in are roofs to stores and schools that had no on in them.  those places are closed when there is snow and maybe you didn't here this but snow this bad only happens every ten to tweenty years,if that.  Also i don't see you signing up to work a life threatening job for a very low wage and taking a $500 fine.  Look the crews of trained people who do this type of thing have been working around the clock since the snow started to fall.  Most of them are averaging 2 hours of rest a day.  There just are not that many of them because this is not snow country.  Also no mattwer how strong you make a roof you can always get more snow then they can take.  I have lived here all my life and this is the first time anything like this has happened.  the last big snow store we had back in 94 didn't do anything like this.  You want a guaranty life will be perfect well in the real world there are no guarenties.  Look the roffs are built to take a lot more snow then we ever get the fact that only a dozen or so have falling in proves that.  Also most of the ones that have falling in are 50 to 100 years old.  the newer building are only closed because the people who own them are being carful.  The best that can be humanly done is being done.  we don't have crews standing by all the time for this sort of thing because as someone who was born here and who's parents were born here i can tell it's a oncde in a life time or maybe even two life times thing.  The snow has taken out some power lines and cause some old roofs on empty building to fall in but that is all.  Everyone is doing fine.  thanks for caring but people here are fine and a good job is being done cleaning up the mess.  it's just a matter of picking things up at this point.

Even with large heavy equipment it's been hard to clear out the parking lots, how would you get all the snow off a roof that's just as large?  People have been clearing off smaller roofs but that's not always safe.  The guy that died in Boyertown was clearing the snow when his porch roof came down on him, neighbors tried to lift it off him but it was too heavy.

There is something for the old low-insulated roofs, heat from the building would melt the snow...

Because snow of this caliber comes around, on average, once every 7 years.  And more roofs stay up fine than collapse.  It's the same reason we don't have the same kind of resources to clear snow as they have in places like Albany, Minnesota, or most of Canada.  The hazardous conditions aren't common enough for things like heated roofs to be cost effective.

Hmmm, it was Bill Murry in Caddyshack trying to kill a gopher, and then in Groundhog Day he tried to kill the groundhog to break his loop.....  Seems he has a problem with burrowing animals.  ;D

Looks like the Monday night storm is now going north of Philly, rain mixed in to the south will keep the totals down to an inch or 2.  But that means all the snow on the sides of the roads will get wet, then freeze solid....

Well look on the upside Doc, the second storm was worse than the first, in as much as it brought some harsh winds.  On the other hand, the second storm dropped less accumulation, and the third it looks like even less.  The forecasters aren't really putting this on the same scale as the other two, so I think it won't be as harsh.

You know, I remember Fall was unusually rainy.  I should have expected this.

And Spring will be here before we know it.

I've taken the rush-hour commuter train five times so far, and of those five times it's been late four. This past Friday I was supposed to get to the Lancaster station at 7:51 and didn't get there until 9:22. So... if you're going on a nice, leisurely train ride then by all means do it, but if you need to get somewhere on time, don't count on Amtrak.

That said, I have to repeat that I'm still relieved I don't have to drive the turnpikes in this weather.

Trouble is, for long distance travel it can be as expensive or more expensive than a plane trip - and then take days instead of hours.

Which is fine if you're not worried about that kind of thing.  And they tout the idea of sitting and looking at the view...

But then so does Greyhound and when I've taken the bus it's been all turnpikes and highways where the only things you see out of the windows is trees and billboards.

I can't imagine taking a train for long distance, except maybe once as a novelty.  I've looked in to booking train travel before, and it looked to be more expensive than a flight, and take about as long as driving there.

Trains do rock for day trips into New York City though.  I like to park my car at one of the rail stations in New Jersey (usually Trenton or Hamilton), then take the train in to Manhattan.

I don't mind it for day trips when I'm by myself, but when I'm going up to meet friends, I don't like to risk it. Sometimes it takes 6 hours for a 3 hour trip. Plus there's always kids and kids insist on staring at me and creeping me out.

They've already closed off a section of Rt 17 and "no non-essential vehicles are to be on the roads after 6 PM," like people are going to go out and drive around for fun.  ::)

We got over a foot here. And my street wasn't plowed when I drove home from work (overnight), but I somehow actually made it on the street, but got stuck trying to get into my driveway, so I was blocking half the street. Then my car stalled (luckily not for good). Been shoveling/plow for the past hour and a half, finally got the car to start again and got it into the driveway. Still have quite a bit of work ahead of me too.

Not nearly as bad as the last 3 storms.  It's been snowing since around 4 AM yesterday, and the total accumulation is only about 3 inches.  The wind is worse this time, causing a lot of snow to blow back over plowed roads, as well as power outages and downed trees.  I haven't experienced any snow related power outages myself.

Oh okay.  You're forgiven.

I'm extremely happy that, apart from strong winds, this storm was not as bad as the last few.  Wind sucks, but at least it's gone after the storm ends, and you don't have to shovel it.  Once the temperatures warm up on Sunday, the melting should be able to pick up pretty much where it left off.

What we really need is some good, hard rain.

If all kicks were 100% certain they wouldn't bother to have them.  They'd just have teams announce "We're going to kick...." and they'd put the points on the board.

That's what makes the game.

And this is coming from a Dolphin fan - remember Garo Yepremian and Super Bowl VII?

If you have a NY driver license, you get an Enhanced Driver License (http://www.nydmv.state.ny.us/edl-main.htm) that you can use for land and water border crossings to Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. It's cheaper than a passport if that's all you need.

Quote from: Associated Press
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Statewide tornado drills scheduled for Tuesday in Missouri and Kansas have been postponed because of a small risk of an actual tornado.
 
The National Weather Service postponed the drills on Monday to avoid any confusion. Thunderstorms are possible in parts of both states on Tuesday.

The drills are now scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Thursday in both states.

The National Weather Service and the State Emergency Management Agency have declared the week of March 8-12 as Severe Weather Awareness Week for Missouri. Officials are urging residents to develop an understanding of weather safety issues and to have a plan in place if bad weather occurs.

And, as usual, we'll never get this done 'cause Thursday's forecast already has the threat of severe weather and sooner or later they'll just say to heck wtih the whole thing and not do it statewide.  I've not been cleared to go back to work yet if they're sending me to Iowa or Nebraska (doc wants me closer to home), but if something pops here in Missouri -- whee*!!

*No, I don't want anything bad to happen to anyone -- but it is a bit morbid to use the Weather Channel as your employment search and be the only person cheering the path of the hurricane/snow storms/etc.  :-[

Sunny, 72 degrees, cloudless skies.  Which is, like, the definition of perfect weather.

I don't like the forecast for the 27th.  I'm going to New York that day, and it says rain.  But that's 10 days out, it could be wrong.  I hope so.

Well, it's the first day of Spring, so snow.

Actually, tomorrow is gonna be one snowy blight on what has otherwise been a very mild and spring-like March around here. And after the weekend it's gonna go back up the 50s.

Which is cool because I have the next two weeks off.

But they forecast the possibility of snow on Sunday night.  It's Saturday night and snowing already.   >:(

Just have to hope that it all melts away by morning.

We in Southern California actually had one last week, but it was only a 4 pointer, so we went back to bed.
The weather here is gorgeous. It was 80-85 last week but now it's 70ish and lovely. Plus all the trees and other flowers are exploding with fragrance and color. My orange trees are particularly wonderful to smell.

surface wind speeds will enhance fire dange

At any rate, that should take care of the humidity.
Yeah, that's a new scale they're using to gauge the level of fire dangers.. Not sure how the Milli Bars (mb) play into that calculation though cause if the Barometric pressure is That Low, that would be quite windy - like Hurricane force but I don't think that's the case with this scale :-\

I think it's just a way of talking about upper layers in the atmosphere without using feet, as the temperature changes the different layers change in altitude, so using pressure is more accurate.

Increased Hurricane Threat in 2010, Says Forecaster


MIAMI -- The 2010 Atlantic hurricane season will produce an above-average eight hurricanes, four of them major, posing a heightened threat to the U.S. coastline, the Colorado State University hurricane forecasting team predicted on Wednesday.

In its second forecast in four months for the 2010 season, the leading storm research team founded by hurricane forecast pioneer William Gray said the six-month season beginning on June 1 would likely see 15 named tropical storms.

The team forecast a 69 percent chance of at least one major hurricane making landfall on the U.S. coastline in 2010, compared with a long-term average probability of 52 percent.

Major hurricanes pack powerful sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour (178 km per hour).

For the Gulf Coast, from the Florida Panhandle west to Brownsville, Texas, including the Gulf of Mexico oil patch, the probability of a major hurricane making landfall was seen at 44 percent versus a long-term average of 30 percent, the Colorado State University team said.

"While patterns may change before the start of the hurricane season, we believe current conditions warrant concern for an above-average season," Gray said in a statement.

An average Atlantic season has about 10 tropical storms, of which six become hurricanes.

The Colorado State University team also predicted a 58 percent chance of a major hurricane tracking into the Caribbean, where Haiti is vulnerable after a devastating Jan. 12 earthquake that left more than a million people homeless.

The earlier forecast in December by Gray's team had already predicted an "above-average" season producing 11 to 16 tropical storms, including six to eight hurricanes. It had said three to five of next year's storms would become "major" hurricanes of Category 3 or higher on the Saffir-Simpson intensity scale.

Another forecaster, AccuWeather.com, last month also forecast a potentially "extreme" hurricane season this year, with "above-normal threats" to the U.S. coastline.

AccuWeather said five hurricanes, two or three of them major, were expected to strike the U.S. coast, forming out of an expected 16 to 18 tropical storms, almost all of them in the western Atlantic or Gulf of Mexico.

The 2009 season ended Nov. 30 had only nine storms, including three hurricanes, and was the quietest since 1997 due in part to El Nino, the eastern Pacific warm water phenomenon that tends to suppress Atlantic hurricanes.

But Phil Klotzbach, lead forecaster with the Colorado State team -- whose research is followed closely by energy and commodity markets -- said El Nino was expected to dissipate fully by the start of this year's storm season.

"The dissipating El Nino, along with the expected anomalously warm Atlantic ocean sea surface temperatures, will lead to favorable dynamic and thermodynamic conditions for hurricane formation and intensification," said Klotzbach.

That Durham was nice or that you can work in a job you're not qualified for?

I liked it a lot because there were a lot of nice amenities nearby.  The newly opened Super Target was less than a mile away.  Work was a 15 minute drive.  Hardees and Bojangles were close too.  I could go over to Chapel Hill on a nice day; their main street was lovely and had a Cold Stone Creamery and it reminded me of home.  The Duke University campus was beautiful too.

And it was a nice place to work.  Or it would have been if I were the man I am today, instead of a shellshocked 23 year old 400 miles away from home for the first time in his life.

There's a difference between Storm Watcher and Storm Chaser.  :D  I've taken the Storm Watcher/Spotter classes and they're okay.  Back in the '70s, my dad was a Storm Chaser when everyone had big CB radios in their trucks and they'd all race out to find the tornado on the ground first.  Of course, being a kid listening to the base station radio at home, I learned a lot of "colorful metaphors" when the tornado would turn around and head straight towards them!  And then my mom would send me into the closet (safest room in the house) to ride out the storm.  ;)

I remember in 2003 we had a nasty thunderstorm here in Oregon (we were right under the main body, so the friggin' thunder rattled our sliding doors...) Turned out a funnel had formed near the top of the west hills (though never touched down). Tornadoes can form in unexpected places.

On the current weather here...It's Oregon. Take a wild guess.

So he's marrying a Chinese girl, and you'll be representing his family as he meets hers right? Oh that'll be tons of fun I can tell.

Yeah, I'm getting a crash course in this and I'm supposed to offer a toast and give a speech and I have no clue what I'm supposed to say ???
The brides mother is having it the day before to accommodate guest's schedules and to limit our exposure to the heat and humidity while dressed in suits..
The wife will be going and bringing a camcorder along so hopefully she will get a good bit of the ceremony on video, but I don't think I'll have permission to post it on my YouTube channel :-\

Last 2 days the weather station here at work topped out at 105°, offical high for the area 101°.  Highest I read on my car driving through Philly was 107°.

Today's a cool one, supposed to top out around 90°, but a lot more humid.

They're forecasting 100 degrees tomorrow (the 13th, ironically).

90, dewpoint in the low to mid 70s.

Basically, another hellish day on the bayou, and the coming week is looking just as bad.

I should move to a state in a more temperate climate. Michigan, perhaps.

Had another strong line of thunderstorms roll through a couple hours ago and there's more in the forecast through the weekend.. :o

With these storms come fallen limbs from trees that have been piling up for a while now and after contacting the city about when they will come to pick up the branches, they said I have to put them into a new 'yard cart' the city is making us buy (started last year - I've refused) and they have no plans to pick them up with their usual utility truck; yet part of our monthly utility bill is supposed to pay for them to pick this stuff up once a week.. I don't see my utility bill dropping any ::)

That's fine!
I'll keep piling up the limbs and branches and putting them across the street like I've been doing since the Spring.. They'll eventually pick them up 8)

I am SO lovin' the air conditioning in the hotel right now -- got it cranked down in my room to much lower than I would normally have it at home.  Hey, they wanna charge WAY more 'cause of the tournament, I'm getting some of my money's worth.  ;D

My local weather forecast through the weekend :'(

Quote
Heat, humidity will pose threat


Blazing July heat and high humidity will combine to cause dangerous conditions over the next four days in parts of the Charlotte region.

A heat advisory for a dangerous combination of heat and humidity has been posted today for areas east and south of Charlotte, including Union, Anson, Stanly and Richmond counties in North Carolina, and Lancaster, Chester and Chesterfield counties of South Carolina.

Forecasters say the heat index -- combined impact of temperature and humidity -- will reach the equivalent of 105 degrees for several hours this afternoon.

The heat index in Mecklenburg and other nearby counties to the north and west will be between 100 and 105 degrees this afternoon.

"The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible," said Justin Lane, of the National Weather Service office in Greer, S.C.

Even higher numbers are expected Friday through Sunday. The actual air temperature today is expected to reach 96 degrees in Charlotte, but forecasters say 100-degree readings are possible Saturday and Sunday.

Little or no thunderstorm activity is predicted to accompany the heat and humidity, as the atmosphere is relatively stable after several days of storms.

At this point, there are no advisories for high ozone levels, however.

Thunderstorms and slightly cooler temperatures, with highs in the low 90s, are expected Monday through Wednesday next week.

And maybe Tropical storm Bonnie (when it forms) will turn our direction :o

I lost 40 pounds a few years ago and I was constantly freezing. You just wait until winter. You will suffer that deep, bone-chilling cold you get when you no longer have as much fat to keep you warm.

I no longer suffer from the cold, however, thanks to regaining probably more than half the weight I lost.  :'(

I also hate when all my friends say "Yeah, but then when winter comes you'll bitch about that, too."

Yes, I will. I also hate winter. Luckily, there are these two seasons in BETWEEN the hot and cold extremes that I rather enjoy.

Today I am pleased to be bringing MY local weather from Brevard, North Carolina!!! It's been a beautiful day here, low to mid 80s with plenty of sunshine (although now there seems to be a little bit of cloud cover). Perfect for camping and hiking and looking at awesome waterfalls and just generally enjoying the hell out of being in NC again.

Three days of the hellish heat and humidity that ruined this summer!

After that it's gonna cool off again. The really hot and muggy days are becoming fewer, and hopefully these next three days will be last of them for this year.

In a few weeks we'll finally be into one of Michigan's BEAUTIFUL autumns. When that happens, you just hope it doesn't get too windy so the leaves stay on that much longer.

Still....keep an eye on it.

Hurricane Andrew forecasts sent lots of people in Fort Lauderdale south to friends in Miami and Homestead....and then at the last minute...

And then there was Hurricane Floyd - category 5 and heading straight for us until it turned north just in time (while the local classic rock station played Pink Floyd 24/7 to make it go away).

Very happy.  A storm like this eventually hitting us is another reason I was ok getting rid of them.  Especially the massive one in our front yard.

Supposed to get a few 75+ mph winds, but it should have died down to a category 2 storm by the time it gets here tomorrow night.  My brother in-law is actually out on Nantucket fishing this week & has no place to keep his 26 foot boat during the storm.  He's trying to find pay some locals to bring his boat inland last I heard.

Well, at least if the power goes out in the Boston area, the clean up efforts will be swifter than they were in New Orleans and Houston.   A month later, and a good part of town was STILL without power.

Probably too late of advice now, but keep the bottled water, non-perishable foods (and can opener) and flashlights (wind up ones are the best) and first aid kits handy.   If you have any old fashioned "plug in" phones, get them out as you can use them even if your power is out.     Taping your windows does NOTHING but get tape residue on your windows.

Doesn't have to be store bought water. If you have containers fill them.  If you have bleach already, look up now how much to put in a gallon of water to purify it just in case.  Fill your bathtub with water to have something to transfer to your toilet tank to flush it.

, non-perishable foods (and can opener)

A MANUAL can opener.  You'd be amazed how many people forget that.

Quote
and flashlights (wind up ones are the best)

And replacement bulbs for them. Found that out the hard way during Hurricane Andrew. Halfway through, all the batteries I would have needed but the bulb dies.  Had to risk using candles.   :(

Quote
Taping your windows does NOTHING but get tape residue on your windows.

It does keep the glass from flying if the window breaks.  But yeah, if you cover the windows properly to start with.

And I still believe that you should keep a protected window or something open just a crack to make sure that the pressure indoors is equal to the barometric pressure outdoors....I don't care what Mythbusters says

Post by: Bob on September 02, 2010, 11:09:24 AM
Yeah, the bathtub of water is what I do too.   Put a little waterproof caulk around the drain (or put a plastic cup over it with a brick on top) to keep the water from draining.   It can serve as drinking water too if you ever get that far down on the bottled water.   

I also keep about 15 bottles of drinking water in the freezer (with some water removed of course) so I can drop them in the cooler to cool off what is ever in there and if the water finally melts, there is drinking water.

I NEED to get some plywood cut and some window brackets put in so I can just drop them in and keep the window safe, but I just seem to keep putting that off.

With the exception of Andrew, I always slept through them.  If you took care of what you needed to, there's not much else to do anyway.

It's the before and after - dealing with the damages and lack of services afterward - I dreaded (why it's good not to have everything you own with built-in rechargeable batteries).

We were actually camping (in a tent) during Bob.  We got up in the AM and were talking with people in town "That was a crazy storm last night." "You mean the Hurricane?" "What???"  We had been camping in Nova Scotia for a few weeks without much contact with the outside world.

But in Earl news we just got 10 minutes of light rain about an hour ago.  Then it stopped. Now it's just really friggin' humid.  More than it was before the rain.  Ugh.

Let me tell you something....although maybe you have the same thing there.

You know I grew up in South Florida.  A place sticking out in the middle of all of the hurricane lanes. You would think that anyone owning a home would have as part of their basic stuff - like lawn equipment and Xmas decorations - they'd all have at least sheets of plywood to cover all their windows stored away for an emergency.

And yet every time a storm would start toward us, there would be a mad dash to Home Depots and such and long lines of people waiting for plywood.  And then the people after the storms who immediately need water and even food because they didn't bother to store enough for even one day.

EVERY freaking storm it would happen and it's too many people to explain away as "recent transplants".

Places like Weather Channel have figured out that they have to  :deadhorse: some people....and even then there's some people you can't get through to.

You watch the Weather Channel more than a dozen average people do.
There's nothing else worth while to watch on tv.. :P

NOW I'M COLD!

But 57 IS pretty cool for this time of year around here. The rest of the week is looking like high 60s to low 70s.

Hopefully I can leave that AC off for the next nine months. Of course, in a couple months I'll have to start turning the HEAT on, but it was a hell of a lot cheaper to heat this place than to cool it.

Actually, my old place was so poorly insulated and drafty, that it was a bitch to keep warm. When I moved here, it was amazing. "Wow! I turned up the thermostat, and only minutes later it was warm in here!"

Speaking of cold..
I started reflecting a bit on another great weather event I experienced when I was just 7 years old living in Buffalo (Tonowanda suburb actually - Near Niagra Falls).. The Blizzard of 1977..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blizzard_of_1977

I remember our house being almost completely covered by snow, helping my mom put food out into the snot through windows to keep it from going bad cause we had lost power and I since I was a hyper kid, my mom told me to crawl out a window and dig a tunnel through the snow to get to the outside cause our doors were blocked.. I really enjoyed that ;D
Even sledding down from the roof of our house the snow since it was so packed!

My father got stranded in the city and I remember it took him 4 days to travel/walk just 5 miles home.   :o

This event forced my parents (my father mostly) to decide to move out of Buffalo to Memphis, TN. before winter set in again later that same year. 8)

It's a really beautiful day here in NYC. Clear and warm but not terribly hot. I don't think I've ever see the Hudson River look so clear and sparkling. It's the kind of day that brings the tourists and makes the city look great.

On another note, I noticed on my train ride up yesterday from Pennsylvania that the trees are starting to change already. That kind of surprised me. It's only the middle of September. I didn't think the trees changed so early.

Since the wife is in TX on vacation she's trying to convince me that we should move there.  The fact that I HATE hot weather is probably a good indication as to how I'm leaning.  (It's one thing to vacation there, but another to have to live there.) No offense to any Texans.
Yeah, not a fan of living there either, but my brother loved living in Austin for a few years before moving back here..

I loved Austin.  She wants to move to Plano.

They're calling for 81 and muggy on Tuesday. Well, that's still a way's away, it might not end up being that warm. This is just like the end of winter when you get a couple weeks of consistently nice, spring weather and then you're hit with one last cold snap.

And for me, neither summer nor winter can even seem to die fast enough.

It was very....yellow out just a little while ago.  We're getting some thunder and lighting flashes so I looked outside.  There was cloud cover so low that it made me wonder if we were finally getting some of the smoke from the reservoir fires....

Everything looks normal now though. Even though the thunder and lightning is still going on haven't seen a drop of rain.

It's interesting, because when winter rolls around, I can handle the cold quite a bit better than most, but for some reason when it went from the high 80's last week to the 60's this week, my body is all like "WTF? Screw this crap, I want the warmth."

Oh, closed all week I meant to say.

Easing out of it.  My son transferred to Pre-K at a private school that my mom is the principal of (even though the daycare is a licensed Pre-K) & my daughter is only going 3 days a week now instead of 5.  We've got calls out to a few other places to see about moving her there.  I need her to go somewhere at least part of the week so I can actually do things like look for a job or run errands.

On the days she's home she pretty much rides in the car with me to drop off her brother, then over to my parents to pick up my dad & drive him to work while he still can't drive or go back to work full time (he had eye surgery for a detached retina), then by the time we get home she pretty much plays for a half hour, eats a snack & then takes a nap until it's time to leave & pick up my dad, drive him home, then drive to the school to pick up her brother.  Pretty miserable for her.

Looking at the map right now, I think it's gone, top wind speed tomorrow will barely be in the 20s, I mean I did film some stuff on the last big storm, never got round to posting it on YT though.

Cold and windy here....was in the 40s and felt like it was 10 to 15 mph winds...

Now Yahoo says it's in the mid 30s and still windy.

Then again, they're also saying that it's going to be back up to 70 by Friday.

Meanwhile, every week for the last three people are talking about it "snowing in a few days".

Title: Bad Weather
Post by: daltysmilth on April 25, 2011, 12:43:01 AM
What with all the storms and tornadoes and floods and whatnot in my neck of the woods lately, I thought it might be good to start a thread about it.  So... two possible topics for discussion in this thread:

1. The recent tornadoes across the country... and whether it's possible that the movie Twister was in fact a chilling prophecy of things to come.

2.  Possible flooding along the Mississippi River... some people are saying it could potentially be even more devastating than the Great Flood of '93.  Do you agree?  And do you have any stories about the flood of '93 you'd like to share?

3.  Has any of the recent bad weather affected you or anyone you know?  How?

That's all I can think of.

Having moved from Birmingham to SC a little over a year ago, this has been crazy to watch. It was a perfectly nice, breezy (well... rather strong breeze actually) day in SC, but I was watching a mile-and-a-half tornado rip through Tuscaloosa online.  Fortunately, no one I know has been hurt or lost anything, but there is def some MASSIVE devastation.  B'ham, from what I can tell, is pretty okay, but the smaller surrounding counties got leveled to the ground.  Friends saying "Looks like a warzone" and stuff.  Thousands are still without power too.

I have a friend who works for Tuscaloosa News. His Twitter feed has a LOT of photos and updates. You can check out his twitter feed here (http://twitter.com/waynegrayson).

And here is (http://vimeo.com/22970879) his really creepy first-person view of the F5 tornado.

Okay, my sis and her family live in Huntsville. (Alabama for the geographically challenged). Right now, they've got a dusk until dawn curfew going on, the schools are all closed and the area is without power. (I'm hearing about 60,000 folks without power in her immediate area and a million total without it in Alabama from my spot in "everything is fine at the moment" Colorado.)  Right now, they're not expecting to get reconnected to the power grid for 4-5 days. (and dork-girl doesn't have a working radio either.) To make things a bit more interesting, my brother in law passed a kidney stone last week and seems to be in the process of passing another.

Needless to say, my sister is a tad twitchy right now.

NOAA: Record 226 tornadoes in 24 hours last week

WASHINGTON --

Preliminary government estimates say there were more tornadoes in a single day last week than any other day in history.

Government analysts say there were 312 tornadoes during last week's outbreak, including a record-setting 226 in one day.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said the largest previous number on record in one event occurred from April 3-4, 1974, with 148 tornadoes.

NOAA says 334 people were killed during the 24-hour-period from 8:00 a.m. Wednesday to Thursday.

More people were killed by tornadoes in the two-day period since April 5-6, 1936, when 454 people were killed, mostly in Tupelo, Miss., and Gainesville, Georgia," according to NOAA. And it was the deadliest single day for tornadoes since the March 18, 1925, tornado outbreak that had 747 fatalities across 7 states.

NOAA: Record 226 tornadoes in 24 hours last week

Preliminary government estimates say there were more tornadoes in a single day last week than any other day in history.

Not sure if you remember, but the premise of "Twister" was based on a similar premise. In fact, I'm pretty sure this was even worse.
What do you mean? At least this doesn't have Philip Seymore Hoffman acting like a retard.
IIRC, the storm chasers were in Kansas(?) cuz there were expected to be a record number of tornados to hit the area......... or something like that.  And I think you're confusing Hoffman's role in "Boogie Nights". He was the doofus, not the retard, in "Twister".  :D

That's okay, it landed on some hag with a shoe fetish. The downside is that a bunch of midgets are singing about our tax returns.

Those jerkoff scam artists predicting the end of the world on the 21st are probably right this time (despite having a batting average of .000). 

Bring it on, I'm getting bored of this planet anyway.

Everybody knows the only good thing about an apocalypse is the post-apocalypse, though. That's where all the fun happens.

Despite it being associated with the end of the world the word apocalypse doesn't actually mean "the end of the world", it means "the lifting of the veil" and essentially means "the learning of the truth" in general this means the whole world finally learns the truth about God or Heaven or things like that.

Exactly, though I think the wordier meaning helps explain it better since people sometimes don't even think about what the word Revalation means when it's associated with the end of the Bible.  :)

That's southWEST Missouri.  I'm in SouthEAST Missouri.  But my aunt lives in that area.  She's a nun who basically serves as the pastor to two Catholic parishes around that area without actually BEING the pastor because the Church won't ordain women, which I think is dumb, but that's a different thread.  Anyway, last I heard she was safe, but I'm sure she'll have her hands full for the next few weeks with ministering to all the displaced people and whatnot.  That part of the state always gets absolutely CREAMED by bad weather, though.  They're always getting hit by storms, particularly ice storms in the winter.

There's both Southeast and Southwest Missouri State, though Southeast is popularly known as SEMO (An abbreviation of SouthEast and Missouri's postal abbreviation) and Southwest Missouri State is now simply called Missouri State University, not to be confused with the University of Missouri aka Mizzou.  Or maybe they do intend to confuse people, so people think they're going to Mizzou but actually they're going to Missouri State.

TROPICAL DEPRESSION 1-E

- The low pressure circulation and thunderstorms, 360 miles south of Acapulco, continue to organize, leading the formation of Tropical Depression 1-E, the first tropical cyclone of the 2011 eastern Pacific hurricane season.

- With 35-mph winds, it is moving toward the west-northwest at 3 mph and a northwest motion should continue through midweek as the system strengthens into a tropical storm called Adrian.

- A turn toward the west-northwest is expected from Thursday through the weekend as the system further strengthens into a hurricane and stays offshore from the coast of southern Mexico.

- On that path locally heavy and gusty showers and thunderstorms should increase, though, along the Mexican coast from Acapulco westward to Manzanillo.

Ahhhhh..

Seriously. I'm not sure what "up north" means in Im's case, but in Upstate NY they said it was about 96, but according to my car it was bouncing between 99 and 100.

Nuts. The rain in the forecast over the next couple days is no longer happening I guess. Ugh.

Yeah you are telling me,and to think 9 times out of ten it rains on fair week.  I just hope I get to spend plenty of time in the shade.

I think lightning just hit our street. I was looking out the front window with the kids and there was a HUGE flash and a weird and loud weird noise that reminded me of the tesla display at the science museum and the air smells really weird like burnin ozone.

The kids are both freaked out and also think t was super cool at the same time.

Maybe Storm remembered she actually controls lighting and is planning a visit?

That's happened to me before where the power poll was hit across from my house and was on fire for about 5 minutes till the rain put it out..
The wife was freaked out and I was all like "YEAH!! AWESOME" *fist pump* 8)

Friday night we are supposed to have one of the following:

1.  Tropical storm Don make land fall near Corpis and we get wind, but no rain.
2.  Tropical storm Don make land fall further north and we get a LOT of wind/rain
3.  Small hurricane Don make land fall and we get wind/rain

Most folks are hoping for number two due to lack of rain in the Houston area.

I vividly remember Hurricane Floyd back in 2000.  It was the only hurricane that ever made it up to Delaware, as far as I can remember.  Maybe we were on the outskirts of it because we live inland, but I remember there was not a lot of wind, but there was LOTS of rain.  More rain than I ever saw at any other point in my life before or since.  I would like to experience that again.

Current forecast for hurricane Irene brings it towards Jacksonville, FL to Charleston, SC by Saturday morning as a catagory 2 (110mph) strength..
Reminiscent of hurricane Hugo's path back in 1989 :o

Does RVR II have his hurricane supplies ready?    Well, besides filling his flask that is.
