It's looking worse & worse.. there's some epic flooding happening. The covered bridge count is up to 3 & one was 140years old.




Wabit~ Had only .02" so far. Been more the regular, easy going seabreeze.

Death toll is up to 24. One was in a tent..


Turns out my uncle was in the Indian River clammin the other day when that outflow boundary hit, the one that tore down my garden structure.. One guy on a boat got blown way down river. Waves whipped up to a 3ft. Said he hadn't seen anything like that on the river in 20yrs.

VT is really getting nailed by Irene. The bigger rivers haven't even crested yet.


One thing that happened during Irene, seemingly unnoticed.. Deepwater Horizon is leaking again in the GOM. Tues samples were taken, Friday it was confirmed. They don't know if it is the riser, well or seeping through the bed but it is the same oil..

Recon transmissions are down and have been for all most 2 hours ... must be because of power outages ... and now since the COC is over land...

they went down before Irene made landfall in nyc

Wab~ He's about naked but that low looks closed. Maybe conditions in Bermuda got it named?

I've got it figured out..Navy is not following 10L, the blow up of convection NW off Africa that NOAA has as a reprise on Floater 1.. & NOAA doesn't have 92L on a floater cause it's just off Africa where GOES sat can't see.

JOSE is near Bermuda.. that was ex10L, but now 11L which NOAA has 10L on the floater for what just came off Africa...10L was on floater 1..maybe someone forgot to change the title.. there is some mistake between NOAA & NAVY..


I think all the vines held the garden structure down..

Glad to see Irene is moving quick. Still several inches of rain are expected. The surge is as bad to 1ft over expected..it's coming in with the high tide.. Everyone stay safe, on the lee side & out of the surge.


Another dust storm hit Phoenix, AR yesterday.

Good morning all.. 10L is gone 92L is new. 92L just stepped off Africa. The next cape verde to watch. At the moment it looks like a weakness should form in front of it as it approaches the US that turns it out to sea. If I had to lay money on a landfall 10-12 days out I'd say Bermuda..we'll see.

I got the Garden structure back up. Hardest part was fighting the mosquitoes. I need to get more support poles in to tie it to...it's leaning a little. Took pics first. I think everything will survive, a few things are a little stressed.


After Irene west winds brought dry air. Temps rose to near 100ºF & the dewpoint to 85ºF. A bit of the jet nosed into Central FL setting off very odd storms with wind & lots of lightning in the middle of the dry patch. It hit my front garden pretty hard.

Good Morning Skye.
As Irene continues on her worst-case path for many folks in the Mid-Atlantic and NE, I am just glad the the various factors kept her from becoming a CAT 4 or 5 as was possible and even seemed likely while she was slowly traversing the Turks and Caicos and beyond through the Bahamas.

Have a nice Sunday!

Hi skye- I know you'll rebuild the garden structure. That doesn't help much when it's a tangled heap, I know. But next spring, you and the young'ns will have bigger, better, stronger.

hope you're able to salvage most of the veggies. I bet they'll be ok.

Okra here chest high, nary a bloom. Do they get really tall, before they bloom?

Thanks for the updates, wab.

ALONG THE MID-ATLANTIC COAST TONIGHT AND EARLY SUNDAY MORNING...
WITH GUSTS TO HURRICANE FORCE POSSIBLE BY SUNRISE SUNDAY MORNING.
TROPICAL STORM CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO REACH LONG ISLAND AND
SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND EARLY SUNDAY MORNING...WITH HURRICANE-FORCE
WINDS...ESPECIALLY IN GUSTS...EXPECTED BY NOON SUNDAY. WINDS
AFFECTING THE UPPER FLOORS OF HIGH-RISE BUILDINGS WILL BE
SIGNIFICANTLY STRONGER THAN THOSE NEAR GROUND-LEVEL.

STORM SURGE...AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS STORM SURGE WILL RAISE WATER
LEVELS BY AS MUCH AS 4 TO 8 FEET ABOVE GROUND LEVEL WITHIN THE
HURRICANE WARNING AREA FROM THE NORTH CAROLINA/VIRGINIA BORDER
NORTHWARD TO CAPE COD...INCLUDING SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE
CHESAPEAKE BAY AND ITS TRIBUTARIES. NEAR THE COAST...THE SURGE WILL
BE ACCOMPANIED BY LARGE...DESTRUCTIVE...AND LIFE-THREATENING WAVES.
HIGHER THAN NORMAL ASTRONOMICAL TIDES ARE OCCURRING THIS WEEKEND.
COASTAL AND RIVER FLOODING WILL BE HIGHEST IN AREAS WHERE THE PEAK
SURGE OCCURS AROUND THE TIME OF HIGH TIDE. STORM TIDE AND SURGE
VALUES ARE VERY LOCATION-SPECIFIC...AND USERS ARE URGED TO CONSULT
PRODUCTS ISSUED BY THEIR LOCAL NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OFFICES.
ALONG THE NORTH CAROLINA COAST...INCLUDING THE ALBEMARLE AND
PAMLICO SOUNDS...WATER LEVEL VALUES WILL GRADUALLY SUBSIDE
OVERNIGHT.

RAINFALL...IRENE IS EXPECTED TO PRODUCE RAINFALL ACCUMULATIONS OF
6 TO 12 INCHES...WITH ISOLATED MAXIMUM AMOUNTS OF 20 INCHES...FROM
EASTERN NORTH CAROLINA NORTHWARD THROUGH THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES
INTO EASTERN NEW YORK AND INTERIOR NEW ENGLAND. THESE RAINS...
COMBINED WITH HEAVY RAINS OVER THE PAST FEW WEEKS...COULD CAUSE
WIDESPREAD FLOODING...LIFE-THREATENING FLASH FLOODS...AND
SIGNIFICANT UPROOTING OF TREES DUE TO RAIN-SOFTENED GROUNDS.

SURF...LARGE SWELLS GENERATED BY IRENE ARE AFFECTING MUCH OF THE
EAST COAST OF THE UNITED STATES. THESE SWELLS WILL CAUSE
LIFE-THREATENING SURF AND RIP CURRENT CONDITIONS.

TORNADOES...ISOLATED TORNADOES ARE POSSIBLE OVER SOUTHERN
DELAWARE...EASTERN NEW JERSEY...SOUTHEASTERN NEW YORK...AND EXTREME
SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING.

Bergen point is forecast for the water to come up over 9'..the trend has been for the observed to be ~1' higher. I expect here & The Battery, NY to get 9-10' of water or more.


Slosh is has upped it's doom to 7-9' above normal tide for these areas as well.

Good morning everyone & Thanks for posting! Got the entry updated. 10L is firing a little from the center. NOAA still has a floater on it & it's still on the NAVY or they might have it as a reprise, so it remains. 91L is new..well kinda..there's some 98L in there.

I hope everyone in the coastal areas of the NE are ready for Irene. Time to rush to complete those plans. She should speed up forward movement from here on out. Good chance she's still be a hurricane while hammering Long Island in ~24hrs.

Top Sail Pier survived!.. it's worst surge was lastnight. There will probably be more piers to watch as the surge moves up the coast.

Guy~ These years of high melt..like last when the Hudson failed to freeze on schedule totally disrupts the polar vortex, slinging it down here..caused those freezes in Dec last year & our overall snowfall events the last 7 years or so. It's why I've been stressing..plant seeds in Aug here in FL, for all your fall squash & such. Get it in early or you'll be crying my fall garden froze to death in December. Seedling the first week in Sept will work too. My Dad grew up around Erie..I grew up hearing about that snow machine.
