STAT TUNED

Watching TD18 with some concerns for the Northeast. Several models, including GFS AND Euro, bring this storm up the Eastern Seaboard. How strong and what type of storm remains to be seen. Several scenerios are possible. With a negative tilt to the jet expected to be in place, it is quite possible that the storm could ride the jet and make landfall in Southern New England.
Another possibility would be for the TD to be nudged out to sea with a secondary storm forming along the East coast.
I cant post no model info due to problems with my pc but I will try and resolve this issue.

Hi Bug, Nascar has come a long way over the years. Never made it to a race yet, hopefully next season.
Thanks, my Sunday is going good.

Hope you're having a good Sunday.

Nascar, huh? I've never really been able to get into that. My next door neighbors, hubby and wife, are both rabid fans. And you know Rays and Wobbie are!

Hey, BigT...

I was truly saddened to hear the news last night about Uncle Walter. I wasn't too surprised, though, as there had been a few things floating around a couple of weeks or so ago, saying that he was in bad shape. There were denials, of course, but....

With his passing, it's the end of an era, IMHO. They just don't make 'em like that anymore. Everyone trusted Walter Cronkite. The anchors and reporters now? There's very few that even approach his caliber.

Hi Matt..yeah, those are pretty big storms but I think they will move off to my NW...Unless they start popping up like last night.
I have not had to run my ac so im happy with this summer..$$$$$ in my pocket

But on the other hand work has been slow for that very same reason....I guess I just cant win,,,LOL
Storms have popped up here too this evening, just some heavy rain showers with a few flashes of lightning. We just got the edge of one, I was outside in it :) The rain drops were cold too, it's usually warm rain this time of year, even at night the rain is usually fairly warm.

Hope you get a nice balance of "saving on the power bill" and "doing AC work"! That must be a tricky situation.

Hey Chuck and SSI!

Hey Art! (hope this don't take days to show up LOL)

I see more storms are in your area in northern NJ, man the Northeast has been stormy here lately!

We could be seeing temps dropping into the upper 50Fs tomorrow night! Brrrr!!!! Time to get the coats out LOL! So far this month it's been a little on the cool side, only 80Fs and low 90Fs for highs. I'm not complaining though, this slightly cooler weather is nice! :)

Shore Yes, it's been a strange summer thusfar. We only hit 90 once, the rest of the time it was in the upper 70's. Some big storms last night, more on the way tonight.

Brooke, yours and Matts posts took two days to post. (Weird) Good luck on your book reports and enjoy your time off. Im doing ok thanks for asking!!

Matt I dont know what happened but it took two days for your post to show up. Yeah, this is usually WU's slow period, than it heats up as we enter the season. We had some strong storms last night, expecting more tonight. A few of them dumped 6 inches of rain at once!!!!!
To all, Have a great weekend, have fun and stay safe (if possible)

Hi, BT,

I always have to stop by these northern blogs to see what might be heading our way. I can't believe how cold it was - record setting? 58? Good gosh. It was in the upper 90s today and we felt like we'd really caught a break-guess we had.

Hope all is going well, despite your cool weather. Interesting that you commented about slower blog traffic - I've seen that over at wordpress, too. I think it's just a time of year when people get caught up in traveling, home projects, or just flat summer laziness!
Down here we don't mind being in the AC at a computer, but I'll bet if I lived up north I'd be ready to get out of the house and enjoy what summer still has to offer.

Hope all's going well - have a good Friday!

Hi Art! How are you???? I've been busier than a bee, but hopefully soon, with break, I'll be able to slow down and actually think for a while. I have my finals next week for the Summer Term and but I have to have two book reports done by Friday. One is done and the other is going to be ready hopefully on Wednesday or so.

Anyways, then we have a three week break, but I'll only get 2 off as I am going to be an RA for the dorm complex and I have to be here to greet the girls and help the guys get all moved out. It's going to be quite the week. And I have to get myself moved into an RA room. LOL...

Hope you're doing good. Take care!

Hey Art! How's it going! How's the weather in New England?

Yeah, it does seem like everyone has been blogging less here lately, myself included, hmm... must be the lack of exciting weather! LOL

I'll probably start blogging more when cane season is supposed to crank up next month :) I'm wondering though if this year will be a dud for the East Coast? I have a feeling that this year will be more of a Gulf Coast year instead, but of course I could be wrong, only time will tell...

Hey, BigT!

I'll be that was a scary storm. I've never seen a tornado or been in or near a storm that spawned one like that. Hope I never am, to tell the truth! I'll do my tornado watching on those chase shows on TV.

Hi to all...What a beautiful day it is today. After a night of showers and T-Storms the humidity has dropped, sunny skies and a gentile breeze.
Miss everyone around here, everybody must have a life....LOL
How about Mark Martin!!! Another great race yesterday.

Hi Brooke. Thanks for stopping by. How is Dad doing?? Make sure you call him often.
Call at your convienience, usually nights are best
Member Since: January 9, 2006 Posts: 80 Comments: 6119
Hi Art! How are you??? Sorry I haven't called. I really haven't hardly had time to even call my parents. They're feeling very abandoned, but I am so busy I can't keep my head above water sometimes.

Take care!

On that day, we were under a severe thunderstorm watch. I was swimming in my girlfriends pool around 4:00PM and noticed off to the north and west very ominous clouds beginning to move towards me in Milford CT. about 5 miles from Hamden. I got out of the pool and asked my girlfriend if she had a camera and she didn't. It was before the days when i used computers and cell phones to get weather info. I went inside and quickly turned on the TV to find out anything, because I just knew it was going to be more than just a strong storm. Tornado warnings were already posted in the entire area of Southern New Haven County. I remember the olive-green sky and the branches on the trees getting sucked upwards. Than branches started breaking off followed by the power going off. I watched the storm passing to my north and east from underneath my girls patio.
When the power came back on, a half hour later, I was stunned to see an F4 tornado had cut a path through Hamden, and although weakening moved just east of New Haven and Out to the Sound.
It was very close to where my sister lived at the time, about a mile or so. We got in the car and tried to get into Hamden with no luck. They had shut off the entire area. I heard from my sister the next day and although she had no power she was able to go to a friends house about a mile away and call my mom and dad.
To this day I have never seen a sky that looked like that. And living in Florida for many years, and the midwest for a year thats saying a lot
