REMEMBERING GEORGIA'S DEADLIEST TORNADO IMPACT IN HISTORY. April 6, 1936. Gainesville, GA - 78 years ago


--


WET SOUTHEAST


--
Update: April 7 at 6:01 PM
Tornado watch 68 until 9 PM EDT
For coastal Georgia, South Carolina and Wilmington area of North Carolina

--

Major rainfall for the southeast this weekend into early next week.
Over 6" of rain possible from New Orleans to Atlanta

Highways under the threat for very heavy rain and even strong storms:
Interstate 59: New Orleans, LA to Chattanooga, TN
Interstate 85: Charlotte, NC to Montgomery, AL
Interstate 20: Atlanta, GA to Jackson, MS
Intestate 10: Mobile, AL to Lake Charles, LA
Intestate 55: Memphis, TN to New Orleans, LA
Intestate 75: Knoxville-Chattanooga to Atlanta and Macon, GA
Interstate 65: Nashville, TN to Mobile, AL
Intestate 16: Macon to Augusta, GA
Interstate 49: Alexandria to Lafayette, LA




Expect very heavy rain across the aforementioned areas.
Strong thunderstorms may be accompanied with the rain at times.

As of 12:50 PM CT The National Weather Service in New Orleans (LIX) already issued flash flood warnings for their coverage area. These are expected to expand eastwards to the East Coast possibly.


UPDATE: As of midnight April 6


Update: 1:20 PM ET April 6



Please be aware of your surroundings, flooding could occur in minutes from a variety of sources such as poor draining, excessive runoff or even rover overflows. Have a plan in mind.

Some forecast sources call for near or over half a foot in parts of Alabama and Georgia, also for 3-5" from New Orleans to Atlanta including Jackson, Huntsville, Birmingham, Rome, Athens and Gainesville. This is a serious situation as the grounds are saturated across this area from recent significant rain storms. Widespread flooding seems possible.




Please check in your airports for your flights as they may be delayed or cancelled. Hartsfield-Jackson in Atlanta, GA is the busiest one across the southeast.

If you travel by rail be sure to contact Amtrak to 1-800-RAIL for your train. Based on this rainfall forecast trains departing from New Orleans Union Station (NOL) like the "Sunset Limited" to Los Angeles, the "City of New Orleans" to Chicago or the "Crescent" to New York City may be delayed for hours if flooding develops across the tracks. Especially the Crescent arriving and departing whose route lies under the highest rainfall threat. Delays from 3-7+ hours are possible.

New Canaan, CT Classic Car Show
April 6, 2014

Merritt Parkway heading southbound to take exit 38 as you see the sign


Notice the copper color pick-up like old car at the center of the image. The festival is about people gathering to see an exhibition of these old cars which are not seen around anymore so much. The street which beings from the intersection and goes for like 1/4 mile is closed and police around checking out traffic and people.



The street is called Pine Street, it's a historical street in New Canaan, going back the street we come from you find a Catholic Church called St. Aloysius, 2 gas stations, a bank, some stores, and houses.

Trust me, this town is where really rich people live in.
The building at the extreme left was the post office last time I saw, now it's a store of some soft. On the other side you have the train station as you see the train there.

We did not go into the street to check out what was going on, we were just passing by on our way to visit from friends.

These festivals occur often in the warm days (summer time), apparently this is the first time they do it this year being warm enough. Every time they shut down this busy street.

There was another red car entering. I got these pictures while waiting on the red light, just after 9 AM today.

I'm protesting this ridiculous thing that Maxine has done. I shall hereby not post in the blog that is controlled by "Maxweather", for nostalgic purposes mainly, but also for more personal reasons that I shan't divulge at this time.

Is this strike silly? More on that in a future blog post of mine (indirectly, but conclusions can be found from within the text).

So long, Ingrid and Manuel. You've been retired.


noaa news article


The World Meteorological Organization’s (WMO) hurricane committee announced today it will no longer use the name Ingrid for future tropical storms or hurricanes in the Atlantic, and the name Manuel in the eastern North Pacific, because of the death and destruction both storms caused in Mexico in September 2013.

The WMO will replace Ingrid with “Imelda” and Manuel with “Mario” when the 2013 lists are reused in 2019.

Heard on the "news" that 4 students did NOT die in that school tragedy , but 24 were injured, with i believe six critically, but they are expected to recover. Hope so. All this gets my wife and daughter nervous(and me too) since they are teachers.

Hey cooldogs... That's a very good question.
I see North Caldwell, where the skywarn class is going to be, is in Essex county which is part of Upton NY NWS.

They're just a little too overdone if ya ask me. I don't like it. I liked our old style bills... talking 1980s and 1990s money. Even the newer versions since then with the large portraits and such - just don't like it. Over time counterfeiters will duplicate anything you create...and since the old bills are still acceptable they're going to be even easier to sneak by people since they'll be focused on the new ones being "secure".

Seems to me they're poorly produced as well with borders being all kinds of different sizes bill to bill. Some bills not the same size. Not sure if that's by design or a screw up.

Click image for larger version:






I looked through the stack I got last week and I don't see any serial numbers close together Max.

I saw this once, with 20 dollar bills, but the two bills were nearly stuck together and were in identical sequence.

I have 2 $100 bills that are nearly one after the next in fabrication... just one in between....
they look old and I doubt they have been together so long... just fortuitous
