Every model recurves it away from the US cause a big front is sweeping it away.

Invest 97L is no more

Cmc keeps calling for this front that just stalled in the Bahamas to blow up in the Bahamas & head north. The 18Z gfs again had it form into a very small storm in the Bahamas & dying as it hit S FL. Both models look to have this even weaker today. But what was once 97L is headed into the area so area to watch winner..

Honorable Mention~

There is a 1008mb low in the southern Caribbean. Good news, lastnight it was a 1006mb low. It's in an area where the diffluence is enhanced. Should move off west & hit land.

Waves may be coming...Though models are tending down abit from the near 10'.

I don't care for a saddle with a horn, unless I'm roping cows, they hit in the belly jumping downed trees. The Mcllean, had to hang onto, comfortable enough, very versitle...pack, drag downed limbs, 40 places to tie stuff...

Another ex grade "A"? sweet. My most used is my Rodrigo Peseo saddle, has the knee rolls...

Leaving a little oysterhead..

Thanx for the salute. Have been a bit busy as you would understand.

Hey! That Australian outback jobbie is not a very comfortable saddle. I have one myself, which was a gift. It hits me right on the bones in my bum, so it is now on the racks - just to say I own one!! LOL

I am used to a Stubben from Germany because I am an ex 'A' grade Showjumping jock. Those have a pad just below the tree that helps to hold you knee in place (prevent it from moving forwards) during the pop. But I don't think that would be too comfortable on a long ride. Unless you jump all the wet rocks in the path!

Don't slum it in a Spanish saddle man. They are pomp and bull ego's on the move LMHO!!!

Why not a good old American Cowboy saddle? Then you can take your 30/30 Winchester along!

Hey code, those Australian saddles are sweet. I think my favorite for comfort is a spanish saddle they use to fight bulls with Andalusians...

They have no tree, so it was like a bareback cloud that was hard to fall out of.
Sounds like a sweet plan for a ride you have planned.

Glad ya'll are enjoying the blog:)

Skye, nice blog. IMO, the Australian saddle can't be beaten for long trail rides. Especially with the covers they make for them. No callouses on my behind when I rode that one!
Hoping to hit the Big Sky area for a week long ride either this fall or next spring.

Skye, thanks for the updates on the shuttle. I so worry for those guys. They need only perfect returns. Hopefully that is just loose junk and not part of the shuttle. All eyes will be on their path home!

Any new news on Brenda?? What about the quilting shop??

Hey Ogal, I might have got a little over excited by the shuttle landing...LOL. Imagine my disapointment at near 6am.. Nothing here on Thimlar.

YellowPitts your blog is too good to stay out of. Really enjoyed the trees.

Okay~ There is really a bunch of well placed narrow & steep trails running around Jackson Falls. Though I was precarously balanced on a rock 2' above a 6' square table rock for the pic.. The Magic of the distorting camera. Glad ya'll are enjoying it. By then it had been more than a week since I'd had a proper bath or worn makeup...

Saddles I use regularly~ All purpose hunt seat, Mclealen (sp wrong...the old american army saddle) & flat seat. I'll try to find a pic of the army one later, like a western, more like an austalain but unique.

wabit~ I gotta try to run you down later:)

I'll try to update the weather in the blog in a bit.

Mornin Sky, thank you for stoppin by my blog with the nice words. I am excited about the shuttle landing tomorrow morning. I am glad that hopefully they will land prior to the rain.

Have you heard any more about the Thimlar case? We have had nothing in our papers over here. Hope you have a wonderful Monday!

Morning! (here)

Who gave you permission to read my blog?! LMHO heh heh

It was nice to hear from you again.
I have been scratching around your blog a bit - observed:-
1. You are NUTS free climbing wet rocks
2. I would have liked to just hear the roar of those STS (rocket) engines.
3. We never see such dramatic weather conditions here.

We only get the good old 'Cape Doctor' winds from the South East (Antarctica) @ 40-50kts below 2000'AGL. Unpleasant on the ground - makes for power take-offs - @ V2 (wings are working - flying) rotate to 40(RWY24) to exit the TMA (terminal airspace), and at wind ceiling lower the nose to 20. Quick. Pilots always want quick. We don't want to work for too long! LOL

Thanks for the NASA Link.
Have a good week.
PS: What saddle do you use?

Thanks Fran. The ponies enjoyed the attention today, I rode Skye about a 1/4 of a mile, mostly walking. This is pretty short of our usual outings. When we got back, he pretended like our house wasn't even there. Just wanted to keep going. Weather was sweet for that & got done right before the ferocous mosquitos arrived, in time for a good bug spraying.

:) Ya'll have a great Sunday

Thanks Gams! I'm down a wisdom tooth. Good to be back on my feet again. The ponys are most glad. That looks almost contagous, the way we've been going down with tooth problems...

Glad your finding the place useful. You've seen my local blogs spread before:) I stopped myself from putting Lane stuff up, my excuse for is... gotta watch how his remains effects the next trough in case Helene misses the one in front of her...lol. I've been tempted to put links to the other FL NWS offices as well. I will if ya'll want them.

{{wabit}}~ It's so nice to be smiling without pain again.

Your blog heading is great. Lots of good info even if I am not north enought for your area! Did you have a root canal or mouth surgery also (a few weeks ago it was Love, then Veracity with the painful mouths!LOL)

Hope it gets better soon; nothing worse than tooth or jaw pain.

Thanks for the info in your blog.
