Good afternoon all

I am making some changes in the hurricane scorecard... A new feature is being placed for all predictions, this will highlight your prediction based on the criteria of seasonal hurricane acvivity being above normal, near normal or below normal.

For example:
Wu member A: 14, 7, 3
Wu member B: 9, 4, 1

Member A predicts above normal while member B predicts below... These will be shaded red (for above normal) and blue (for below normal). I may use gray for predictions meeting the near normal rank.

This will be displayed on the next update of such chart this upcoming weekend.

You will be able to see the variety of colors to give you a general idea of the hurricane season activity.

Feel better, Astro. Max, have driven to that part of Pa. many times. My daughter went to college at Dickinson College, located in Carlisle Pa. which is about 20 miles further West than Harrisburg. Blizz lives near Harrisburg.


Thanks LT. I have a bunch of family up in PA, basically half of my family emigrated from Europe and settled in the region.

I mean Astro these highway signs you can buy online or at a store. They keep making more and more as new streets are open every time.
I was happy to see my own Connecticut 95.

I was lucky enough to grab mine from this store as they told me the same exact product bought online is nearly $85 w/o shipping price or taxes but I paid like $45 the sign is 2'x2' and about a tenth of an inch thick. Pure aluminum and highly reflexive.
Good price if you ask me.

You were sick? What happened?


Am* Present tense. I have a cold...except this is the worst one I've had in a while, comparable to the flu. I feel considerably better now, no more chills/sweats/shakes, but I'm at home today and not in school.

The signs you saw are collectible goods. A lot of people across the country have them and save them. A lot are relics from the past.

The History Channel show American Pickers loves to come across folks that have those kinds of signs.

Good evening all...

Gotta say the trip was wonderful.... Im just tired from sitting so much

I got my "souvenir" from a store there in Harrisburg, I was going by this store that had all kinds of house goods.

Two things I got from there:
-there was this big 12" long mug that had my name initial on it (F) in a fancy calligraphy font.
-And a big stack of street signs caught my attention, I was surprised to see these things (as house goods???), they had stop signs, do not enter, wrong way, dead end, speed limits etc...
Some of those caught my attention like the highway signs and even with the state in it like Pennsylvania 87, Louisiana 49, Georgia 85 AND Connecticut 95. That's the one I took with me.
I also saw in the stack there street names like Broadway, Main St, etc.

I loved it... Im going to this city again

To put it another way, about that newly discovered planet, it's about 2550 trillion miles away. I think I got that right, based on it being actually about 490 light years from us. I don't think we'll be exploring that area any time soon, unless we develop "WARP DRIVE" like on Star Trek!

Quoting MaxWeather:
This exo-Earthlike-planet is located 500 light years from us... or nearly 3 QUINTILLION miles away from us...
doing some math, we find out it takes about 4.5 million years traveling at the speed of light to get there...

Nearly 4, 500 millennia!!!!


The statement I bolded is incorrect. It doesn't take 4.5 million years of traveling at the speed of light if the distance is only 500 light years. If the distance is 500 light years, then it takes 500 years of traveling at the speed of light to get there.

And, technically speaking, it only takes 500 years (if you travel at the speed of light) for say NASA watching you travel. If you yourself do the traveling, the time it takes to get to the star is 0 years, from your point of view.

Hey, fellow introvert here. Just keep writing. If you need to, lay down an outline of what you want to say. Don't worry about what others may think of your writing, either. Just write.

Sister Earth finally discovered?
KEPLER-186F



NASA announced Thursday that it has confirmed the first planet beyond our solar system that exists in the habitable zone of its star and is close to the size of Earth, making it the most likely exoplanet yet validated to host life. But the planet, Kepler-186f, orbits an M-class dwarf star and receives only about a third of the energy from its sun that Earth receives from our own beloved fireball.

So I was out last hour doing a "driving practice" (shaking my head)...
Sometimes I feel like I want to go out but I don't know where to.
So I drove up I-95 into Bridgeport, took exit 27A for Route 8, then exit 7 for Merritt Parkway southbound and then exit 41 for route 33 to get back home... I loved the 40 min drive!

sort of like a circle I did...
Note: Unexpectedly I hit 81 mph on the Merritt... I didn't realize I was going that fast from being 65 mph seconds before. My car has a very sensitive gas pedal...
I better be careful...lol

Hi PRweather nerd... thanks for coming and dropping your forecast. You have a special number on the list: #36

Yeah I decided to forget about my old name and everything that was with it... I feel like I got a splash of cool freh water on my face.
I see things differently here. I don't care about starting again from comment zero, unlike many here I think having 20,000(plus) comments gives them the potency they want to increase everyday, which makes no sense to me.

anyway... I try to have my blog look cool for people to come over, I try to do these good looking graphics to get people interested in what I do, as always being weather informative.

Nintendo? I love playing super Mario Bros... lol
I don't go to chat too much lately... When I do, once in a while, I just get on there to say hi to read some stuff people say, make a comment or two and then bye.

Why don't you try out typing a blog? No one is blocking your way.

*1 major hurricane

I think this is the first time I've actually posted something in WU since like December lol. Unless you count the chatrooms, since I posted there when the earthquake happened. I blame schoolwork and Nintendo.

Also, your blog looks so much nicer now! It's nice to see how much you've improved since you first started posting here. It kind of makes me ashamed to have never posted a single blog entry.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez - 87
March 6, 1927 - April 17, 2014

One of the best Spanish Language writers, a novelist, journalist and a great literature-nobel-prize-winner Colombian poet of the 20th century passed away today in Mexico City.

Garcia Marquez is one of the top Spanish writers. When studying Spanish either as a native or as second language you will likely read books by this author. AP Spanish is heavily based on readings, many are from Marquez.

Rest in peace.

Surprise snow in Nashville, TN sets a new record


A trace of snow fell this morning at the Nashville airport. This is the first time snow has fallen on April 15th in Nashville since record keeping began in the winter of 1884-85. The latest that snow has fallen is May 19th 1894.



Well, it wasn't a surprise. It was in the forecasts. I can't believe they counted that though. It was only a few flurries...wettest snow I've ever seen.

Rescue boats and helicopters scrambled to pluck passengers, most of them high school students, from a ferry after it sank off the southwest coast of South Korea early Wednesday.

Of the 459 people on board, 164 have been rescued, the security ministry said.

Many jumped from the listing ship to the freezing waters of the Yellow Sea.

At least three people -- a woman, a man and a boy -- were confirmed dead. Another 292 remain unaccounted for, the ministry said.
