Yay Ally!

Also, it looks like Vermont, New York, and a bunch of other areas are going to get NAILED with heavy tropical rain tomorrow. Could be interesting.

Seem to be in an area of higher precip, we need it. I think due in part to up sloping?
At .65" as of 9:15pm.

I believe virga usually shows up as a more solid return and not usually in clear air mode. Moisture in the air, ie. fog,certainly shows up sometimes. As a matter of fact, there is an experimental program that tries to look at just fog, don't have time to find link now.

Short answer, ground clutter. When the radar is in clear air mode, such as when there is no precip in the area, it is more sensitive and subject to showing dust, dirt and bugs.Link


No kidding?! That seems like a glitch that needs some work!

I was thinking it could be virga. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virga

I had a feeling y'all would be excited! :-)

Ally's oncologist absolutely rocks for reading her scans immediately like that. Several of the doctors are away right now, so her doctor has extras to do, and she still did it. Awesome.

I'll bet she enjoyed calling Ally's Daddy and telling him the news! :-)

Hi can someone explane why it is 90 out today I love the day just wondering ware the warm weather came frome. I going to go look at some bes the hony season is almost over we had a mild frost a few days ago I hope thay have lots of hony on them Lazzy


A great big ol' warm front is moving in, from here down to Georgia. A friend of mine in West Virginia has a red flag warning for her area, while we got soaked last night here.

It's a Farewell Summer sort of day.

Speaking of honey bees...We had one this morning walking around by the flowers very sluggishly (despite the warm temps). It paused to take a bath (rubbing each leg) and I wondered if it had something unfortunate stuck to it. It stopped on a brown leaf on the ground and did this little bath, then moved its back end up and down twice, then stopped. It stayed perfectly still for so long I thought it had died and got the camera. But then it started "washing up" again. It has been hanging around in the garden since yesterday and I haven't seen it fly at all. Could it be in trouble, or is this perhaps an end of season or end of life bee? Is there any way to help the bee?

Not that it's worth much that far out, but the GFS has been showing a major hurricane nailing the New England area which would cause horrible destruction on the coast and crazy flooding in Vermont too. This is really far off so it's unlikely to happen how the GFS had it but still, need to watch it.


Thanks, Inyo. Which storm are they watching regarding this? I don't worry if it's far out* but I also like the chance to be aware. Got link?


* This being the birthday of Jim Hensen, I can't write "far out" without seeing a Muppet saying it as:

A little note about Ally's scans:

It's easy to tell that Ally's folks are beginning to feel the stress of tomorrow's landmark scans and the big wait over the weekend for the results. These scans will tell whether there are any cancer cells in Ally's body presently. If there are, it's NOT good, as she has been clear the last two times she's had scans. If there no cancer cells, it's fabulous news and her 3f8 treatments may proceed. The treatments will help ensure Ally's remission continues. We are very hopeful, yet cherish your good vibes, prayers and shared hopes. %u2661


The idea that will help Ally most is now #2 !! It needs to STAY THERE!!! (or go to # 1!)

My DIL in VT took this photo a few days ago.



The trees were 98% green a week ago.
In just a few days, at the Equinox, the trees have gained about 20% more colour! (How did they know? LOL!) It's happening early and fast this year, but the colours seem vibrant.

♥ Fresh ALLY Update! ♥


Thursday, September 23, 2010 5:17 PM, EDT

New York called back!

It turns out we will have to stay from October 4th into the next week.  They are going to schedule a quad bone marrow and a 4 hour urine test on Columbus Day.  Every time we have just one (or two) things like this we try to leave in the afternoon.  EVERY time it stresses us out....so we are just going to wait to book a train home for Tuesday, October 12.  We are going to think of it as a mini vacation.  Auntie Lynn (the special guest) and I are going to bring Ally out to see some of the City over the weekend and we will enjoy not being rushed at the end of our journey.

Please pray for tomorrow.
Ally doesn't have her scans until 2:45, which means no eating after 8:00 in the morning.  Pray that her tummy doesn't hurt too much, that Daddy will be able to keep her calm, and that the scans are clear!

PS Grammy and Grampa said Ally did a great job at the hospital today.

thank you for the Ally update! Lazzy


You're welcome! Here's today's (from Ally's Mom) ~

Thursday, September 23, 2010 9:53 AM, EDT

Surprise, surprise, the NYC office never called me back. So, I called them.

It looks like we are on for 3f8 treatment the week of October 4th. Mommy will be going with Ally, and possibly a special guest will be going with us.

There are about 4 million little details to go along with going to NYC. The biggest of which is scans. Ally gets scans about every 3 months. These include: MIBG, CT, Quad Bone Marrows, and a 4 hour urine. Ally's home oncologists are away at a conference this week, so she is only getting the MIBG and CT. The folks down in NYC are particular about having ALL the scans completed. So, I am now waiting for another call back about those. The urine shouldn't be a problem. I am hoping we can just do that one of the 3f8 days (since we are there for over 4 hours anyway). The Bone Marrow is going to be the tricky one. Even if we went down the Friday before they would not have results for the following week. So, we are hoping that as long as her scans are clear on Friday, they will be able to hold the bone marrow until Columbus Day (and hopefully that is a working holiday). There are about 3,999,999 other little things we have to do, but the urine and bone marrow may mess things up. Please pray that the NYC team will be flexible and empathetic, and that things will work out well. Also we need big prayers for clear scans, the 3f8 treatment means nothing if those scans are not clear!!!

I will be sure to update again when we hear scan results (which may not be until next Monday).

From Ally's Grandparents (Hubby's Brother and SIL):



Hi Everyone, Pepsi Cola is running a campaign called 'Refresh Everything'. Basically what they do is allow different organizations to suggest ideas that need funding. The top two vote getters receive $250,000.00!!! One of the ideas is to find less painful treatments for Neuroblastoma patients. This research would be done at Memorial Sloan Kettering (where Ally is being treated) in New York City.
The link below will bring you to the site where you can sign up and then vote. You can vote twice a day until the end of September. The 'vote' button is in the upper right hand corner. This $$ would go a LONG ways toward helping the cause. Feel free to share this link with anyone you think would like to know about it and participate. Thank you so much for your help and continued prayers for Ally!
Blessings,
Ally’s Grammie & Grampa

Evening, all ~

The terrible storm that cruised through the NY boroughs reminded me I hadn't stopped by my favorite NE blog for a while ;-)

What a great photo of Ally! Nice pumpkins, too.

Inyo, I love lenticular clouds - envy your sight of them. Well, and I envy your view, too.
We're all hoping nothing pops in the GOM because if it does, there's trouble headed somebody's way. I've been keeping an eye on the mess that's still roaming around down there, north of where Karl made landfall.

As for those folks on Doc Master's blog who are complaining about a "bust" of a season, I have a sense plenty of them are about 15, with no responsibilities and a tendency to confuse storm tracking with video games. Just my opinion, of course. ;-)

Hope everyone has a great weekend - got any of that cake left, Listener?

Heeeeere's ALLY!



Sorry this is late in being posted. I just now saw it myself!! From Ally's Mommy:

Tuesday, September 14, 2010 4:46 PM, EDT

Our weekend was great! On Saturday we went apple picking and stopped by Ally's school to check out the playground. She loves the sand box there, and it is the size of our backyard! We also visited parks and restaurants. Sunday was a nice relaxing day with nothing to do!

Yesterday Ally spent the day at Grammy and Grampa's house. She had a blast, of course. Today she got to go back to school! She was very excited when she woke up this morning. Of course she already has the sniffles, but hopefully it will not turn into a fever and just stay a runny nose. I actually had a workshop, just up the road from Ally's school, and it let out just in time for me to meet Ally at school! She was surprised!

Ally is currently in her 2nd week of the grumpy medicine, for her 6th and FINAL cycle!!!! Late afternoon preschool, followed by a short nap does not equal a happy Ally, but next week she will be!

Ally has a HAMA draw on Thursday morning. We will get results from that on the 22nd.
On the 23rd Ally gets her port accessed and the MIBG injection. On the 24th she gets a CT and an MIBG scan. Unfortunately 2 of the doctors will be away and the 3rd doctor then has the work of all 3, so we may not hear any results until the following Monday. It will be an excruciatingly long weekend, but we have done those before.

Tomorrow night we are headed to the TGIFriday's near here. They are doing a Make-A-Wish Fundraiser. Ally actually has her picture on a plaque on the wall there!

Well said, Inyo! I quite agree with you about the storms forming further west and recurving earlier being a good thing. Poor little Bermuda is going to take a pounding this weekend. Imagine if it were the whole east coast?!

Oh, don't worry about feeling cold right now. We all do, even the natives. But after a few weeks and months of cold weather your blood with thicken up a bit and you won't mind it so much (most of the time).
