Good morning Skye - I was happy to see 0.06" in my rain gauge from a shower overnight. Plants have been wilting in the afternoon lately. I still have some rainwater so I've been running around the yard with buckets.

I second Louisclocks motion! May can be a very dramatic month, waiting to see when the dry season breaks and the rains begin.

The switch hasn't completely been thrown for the Northern Hemisphere season yet. 97W died, then promptly three invests formed in the Southern Hemisphere..91S, 92S & 93S.

Finally had a chance to look at the satellite. Tropical feel today. Been out in it all day. Went from Casselberry to Malabar. Saw a quick downpour in Melbourne. Had 0.11" here. Saw a decent scud cloud west of I-95.

Skyepony (the actual pony) was feeling the surface trough south of here, wind would kick up a little & he'd want to go..pranced around more than usual. Fun ride.

The ants are moving to high ground.

There is an Upper level Low over SFL & Bahamas is venting the trough, causing diffluence, especially on the east side, over the Atlantic & Bahamas. So can't rule out a more rain for East Central FL. Little going on now north of Orlando, incoming shower headed for the Cape.

This should continue on about another day. More heavy rain for SFL/Bahamas is possible. Models then call for the different features to move away from each other, weakening it. There is so much shear around. The bulk of the moisture may make it to LA before being slowly pushed back east over much of the Southeast over the next week.

That's actually the new yesterday's Windsat showing now. Hard to believe it caught it two days in a row.

Tropically all the invests that flared yesterday are dead today. 97W is the only survivor.


As for the local moisture. The Bahamas & SFL look to be the real winners of the rain.

Rob~ Sorry about your tomatoes.. I used to let things dry out or skip watering before expected rains. Learned it's not the way to fly with tomatoes. If I'm skipping any way, best to pull them before a downpour if they have any color.

Juslvn~ Hey! I was in your blog the other night. Should have commented.

Hey Aqua~ Looks like VT inches closer, though nothing definite.. CA is putting up the good fight too. Like that pic in there.

Fed some spent corn to the ponies yesterday, waiting on seedlings to pop up. Eating alot of cabbage, onions, brussel sprouts, peppers, some cucumbers, cherries are in. Not the best year for blueberries. Grow watermelon..grow:)

97W & 91A are looking a little livelier. 90S is new but not real impressive.. & we have a blob in the Caribbean. Models have it inhospitable or don't pick up on it so much NASA/GMAO GEOS-5 keeps it weak, sheared.. puts it in Nicaragua/East Honduras. May have 92L soon.

Hey everyone. Checking out the tropics. Not real active at the moment.

91A



Now that my license is renewed, human nature sinks in..as long as I don't have to deal with it..kind of sinks down the priority list. Celebrating human nature with some Monsanto Bashing..there's one that hasn't faded but become darker & more troublesome.. Agent Orange corn anyone? No? Better consume organic corn only.

90% of Vermonter's are backing the Governor to sign a bill to label GMO. It looked like a sure thing til last minute Monsanto promised to sue the heck out of the state. Last I saw citizens were gathering money to fight the lawsuit on behalf of their state.

Ya'll rant, rave & comment on. Reading it all.

No Labels or Safety-Testing of Frankenfoods

May
26 will mark 20 years since the FDA decided, at the behest of the biotech
industry and corporate agribusiness, and under the leadership of Michael Taylor,
to keep Americans in the dark about whether our food has been genetically
engineered or not. Thanks to Michael Taylor, genetically engineered foods don't
have to be safety tested or labeled, and the Food & Drug Administration
conducts no premarket review or approval, as long as Monsanto and their fellow
chemical pushers (Dow, Dupont, Syngenta, BASF) conclude that the genetically
engineered food is not "materially different" from normal food.
Twenty years later, Michael Taylor's FDA has rubber-stamped Dow's conclusion
that their Agent Orange Corn (genetically engineered to resistant massive doses
of the herbicide 2,4-D used in Agent Orange) is comparable to normal corn.
Tom Vilsack's USDA is ready to give Agent Orange Corn final approval. Soon,
we'll be eating unlabeled corn engineered with genes from a soil bacterium that
isn't killed by 2,4-D herbicide - something we've never eaten before, and that's
never been safety tested.
2,4-D is currently the 7th largest source of dioxin pollution in the US and
is toxic to the eye, thyroid, kidney, adrenals, ovaries/testes, and neurological
system. Agent Orange Corn is projected to increase 2,4-D use 50 times over.

Excellent points.

Yes, like a lot of laws, it burdens law abiding individuals and fails to deter criminals. There are ways to work the system, as usual. Also, this particular law will likely result in more people driving around unlicensed and uninsured.

But remember...this is all for our own good and we should just get in line and follow orders.

In reality, it is just the government acting like they are doing something about a problem when they are not.

If this is a federal law, it affects everyone, not just the poor or homeless. We should all rise up and nip this thing in the bud, before it gets worse.

United States citizens are not obliged to answer to any certain name or to live in any certain place. They are not obliged to have money. When it comes right down to it, you don't need a license to drive a car. I'm thinking that, in Florida, an expired license may soon become a badge of honor.

One's identity does not inhere in a piece of paper.

Just to add to everyone else's excellent observations on the injustice and raw stupidity of the Florida Driver's License Laws:

1. The law is anti-women. It is married women who need to get a copy of their marriage license, which can be much more difficult to get than a birth certificate if you got married out of state. Also, any religious certificate won't pass, even if signed by the Pope or Pat Robertson or the Dalai Lama, etc.

2. The law is extremely anti-poor and especially anti-homeless. Any reasonable court should rule the law unconstitutional since it deprives homeless people of their civil rights. But the objective is to keep the growing masses of homeless "out of sight, out of mind", and prevent them from becoming a political force.

That Real ID nonsense ticks me off. Are you more yourself with a piece of paper than you are without?

It is not the government's function to hassle people. The government is there to help, to facilitate, to expedite. If it gets in the way, it can be replaced — by force, if necessary. That is the definition of democracy. That is how our present government was instituted.

Oh my. I owe my Mom an apology. The other day she went on a full on rant about the Florida DMV and having to prove every name change etc. It took here over a week to get her license renewed.
I thought it was probably because she was chronically un-organized...(you have to know Mom to truly appreciate this)...Now I guess I'm proud of her for rising to the challenge instead of just going around with an expired license.

This law is kind of like getting rid of car locks that can be opened with coat hangers or car keys with $$$ chips. Thieves will find an easy work around, but those of us that own the car (or drivers license) have to go through hoops and money to get what is rightfully ours should we forget something.

Shout out to Aqua; your veggies look great!

Was talking to a guy a couple weeks ago that had spent most of a day trying to get his renewed. He had all the right stuff. Birth certificate, voter registration, concealed carry permit, insurance bills. Problem was, the street address did not read EXACTLY the same on all of it. Something like "Cherry lane west" vs "W Cherry ln." Anyone local would know what it meant, but because of the differences of how different agencies entered things in the computer...no dice. He went to his insurance agency and had new ID cards made up to satisfy the DMV and finally got it taken care of.
(after missing 3 hours work).

Sorry they gave you the run-around at the DMV, Skye, I had problems renewing earlier this year too. I brought everything I thought I needed and more, but the guy behind the glass said no. It might surprise you considering my mild manners, but I had a major public flip-out, the kind where everyone shuts-up and stares. I cursed the state and all of the politicians in Tallahassee. Luckily the guy didn't call the police, he was actually somewhat nice about it, guess he'd seen worse...he said I needed to have my wife sign a form and bring in another proof of address with her name. Wouldn't even take my checkbook with my name and address, "You coulda just printed that up!". Surprised I didn't need a note from my Momma too. Big Brother sucks.

This dry wind the past 36 hours has just about erased the rainfall over the weekend in my locale. Good to reiterate that drought is measured by overall soil moisture and groundwater levels, and not necessarily by rainfall deficit directly. These red-flag conditions are much worse than a nice breezy onshore flow.

Angie is jumping though the hoops to get all here paperwork in order for the license renewal. It's expensive getting that stuff from NY State.

Another problem is although I have a mailbox here, all my bills and important stuff goes to a PO Box. Not acceptable, so have to change addresses on stuff, wait to get a couple bills in that have the street address on them, then change it back.

Stupid and anybody that wanted to fake an address could do so.

I've lived in the same place for a long time. I know a lot of cops and public officials. They know where I live, but soon, I too will have to jump through hoops.

The thing that makes me angriest is that the courts ruled that the states did not have to do this. Florida said "well, we've already spent the money to implement it so we'll keep it."

It would get pretty expensive for a woman who was born in another state, married in another state, then divorced and remarried, then moved to FL. If the state had to pay for all that paperwork (some states charge substantial fees) then this would all go away, but it's not their problem...

Not the DMV's fault, it came from Tallahassee.

It's costing citizens millions of dollars to comply in an economy where we could better spend the time and money on more important things.

When VA pulled that stunt on me, after it was all said and done and the final button had been pushed on the computer, I cracked to the DMV employ that it would have been cheaper and easier to have run over to the 7/11 and found the right guy to gin out all the stuff on his basement computer/printer. She didn't find it at all funny. A real PIA for them for no practical gain.

Thanks y'all for appeasing me with having a little fun with this..

Here's an article from Tampa on it.

Bogon~ It is a FL thing. People are still fighting "real ID" in NC. There are all these stories in local Hometown News where people rant & rave about stuff, it's recurring topic. The laws changed a few years ago & now a lot of people are having a hard time renewing. It's all good online but when your year comes around that you have to come in with about every paper on yourself you can muster..the stories.. You need proof of every name change, every marriage & divorce certificate or proof of death on past spouses. Made a many mad elderly ladies with that law. I barely proved where I live even though it's on my licenses. They require several document with your address.

Ylee~ You've got a great point..I am lucky I was born here.

Skye, at least you could easily get your birth certificate; in Ky. you have to order it online from Frankfort, which takes a week, minimum!

Why on Earth, though, is the reasoning behind needing a birth certificate to renew? If you can fake an ID, you can fake a birth certificate, IMO.

Good luck tomorrow!

91L still up there, look at the core dive SE as that front from this last low approached.


Saw a brushfire on west side of US1, somewhere between Post & Lake Washington Rd. Near a bunch of trailers in some woods around a retention pond. Smoke blew out over the Indian River.


My birth certificate that was my only one ever issued to me that has got me through to this point was deemed unacceptable to renew my drivers license. I had to drive near an hour away to get another copy of my birth certificate. For that all I had to show was my driver's license. The idiots that made these laws should be voted out. Wish me better luck tomorrow when I try for a license again.

Morning all~ As Tropics stated..Tropically it's pretty dead even through we have three invest. 91L has another naked swirl approaching. Maybe it's last day, but the way it's carried on I'd be scared to bet it.

Indian Ocean one has a little convection..


Tropics~ Yeah, that's why I went back to shuttle pics after the squalline. Weather has been beautiful here.

Aqua~ Those are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. I've got to plant some of those. My first round of green beans is finishing up.

Planted a bit yesterday.. Busy day ahead. First up: going in to renew my driver's license. Wish me luck.

Hey everyone..what a squall. Had a few close lightning hits, all the kids in the bed, 28mph gust, .60" of rain.

Guygee~ I think your right about how this would have been worse at a different time of day. Several on the main had discounted thinking things were too stable. Something about the GEOS-5 (been nailing this), the way it looked & then with NWS backing it seemed worth watching. It wolk me up & I storm spotted a little. Which is partly why I'm getting up so late.

MLB NWS called me yesterday evening about spotting the evening before. There was a warned hail cell to the NW that didn't quite make it here to verify but I could attest to the green sky.

Rob~So nice it's all rinsed clean..

Northeast~ It's time to prepare for heavy snow, wind & possible power outages. Should just intensify from here. Latest run on GEOS-5.

sp~ Face the Nation just had a look back at the mothballing of the manned space program.. I maybe still in disbelief.

Got most my baby plants transplanted in the big garden yesterday. Need to plant more today. It's a good planting day by the moon. Got alot of cabbage & cauliflower that will need replaced in a month or so.

Thanks for posting everyone..I've got to run off & tend things.

Hey Skye - Thanks for the warnings, I was unaware until I checked in here last night.
The line really faded as it approached before I turned in sometime after 2 AM...while heavier storms were firing up offshore over the Gulf Stream and moving away to the NE, possibly siphoning off some of the energy. I recorded 0.46" in my rain gauge for Saturday morning and and an additional 0.45" as of this morning, welcome rains indeed. I think the timing of the system was about 12 hours out-of-phase for a much heavier event.
Have a good Sunday!

We got some rain here in South Florida. Not sure how much. I don't think it was enough to help out the non irrigated orange groves. It all helps thow.

Hi Skye. Just wanted to say thanks for sharing your pics and thoughts of Discovery. I haven't entirely moved from "mad" to "sad" about the end of the program, yet. Can't imagine what it's like for folks directly associated with it.
I am hoping I can go see Endeavor rolling through the streets of L.A. - saw an article about the work they're doing to choose a route - that'll be a trip!

Got 0.23" myself yesterday, hoping that is just the opening for a very rainy 48-72 hour stretch to come.
Poor Wanee-goers, never been myself, but I swore off of mud-bowls long ago. Some massive festival just outside of Athens, OH...the Allmans played that one too, although it was probably the Chuck Leavell era back then...I remember having to carry a large semi-conscious woman (like 5foot-10inch large)up a steep muddy hill to the tent hospital up top, struggling through massed people sitting on waterlogged blankets, avoiding the only trail since it had become a mudslide for naked dudes like out of some Tim Burton Wet'n'Wild nightmare. That wasn't even the worst part of the day...
Never again!

91L is but a naked swirl.

Congrats! I know how you fee, got 0.14" today. It was humid & summer like for a bit after dark but cooled since.

Checking out the 12Z GEOS-5..looks like a nightmare for Wanee. The worst coming through Sat evening during Furthur & The Allman Bothers.

I just saw they couldn't get Discovery off the plane today due to high winds & rain. They are hoping to get it down in the next few hours.
