Back in NYC... Unlocking the shelves of reminiscence

I was very welcomed home, feel the same way when coming here.



You can tell how much activity there is across the world but nothing significant to anyone really.
Here is the breakdown...


Atlantic:
Erin will not be a threat to anyone, just counting the hours until its dissipation, there is no reliable model run contradicting me on this.
94L may also be short lived in the Eastern Atlantic, it could become weak tropical cyclone at the most.
92L...I do not longer forecast any development of of this... it's time is up.

Central Pacific
Tropical storm Pewa, a strong tropical storm packing 65 mph winds moved over the 180 degree Dateline into the Western Pacific, 90C meanwhile may organize a bit more but all this time being limited due to the outflow of Pewa to its west, 90C is going to exit the basin in a day or so.
In fact there are 4 disturbances in the Central Pacific, the other two may organize a little but hot expecting to harm Hawaii.
I have a feeling, though, Hawaii could get struck by a big hurricane this year. There has been a lot of activity there lately. Flossie was the first storm to hit Hawaii in 20 years and Pewa was the first named storm in 3 years.

The Epac is quiet but a new disturbance forecast to form within the new 5-day outlook.

Western Pacific
Pewa, may become a typhoon as it moves WNW, Wake Island may be spared but they need to monitor the storm's path because by the time it gets around there the storm should be a 80-90 mph typhoon. Pewa could reach category 2 status.


Trami, a new named storm is expected to make a horizontal U-turn to head west and intensify, northern Taiwan must be on the lookout for a potential typhoon impact and we know these storms there could rapidly intensify into larger storms. I wound not be surprised if Trami makes it to major storm and does hit Taiwan.

Stay on top of updates and safe if you are in a storm's path!

I left from Atlanta, Georgia at 8:30 PM on Aug 16 to reach NYC, NY at 1:30 PM on Aug 17... 15 hours by train! Plus another 1 hour to get here to Norwalk, 16 hours.

I am so glad to be home.

Picture taken as I was entering NYC's Manhattan by 1:10 PM... no words when I first saw everything again.

I see everything I've done in the south as a challenge, and the people you meet as co-workers who eventually are nice and friendly to you. In fact I got 2 calls as some didn't know I was coming asking me if I was going to return to Georgia.
My now buddy is the only one I told I was leaving and he expects my return there. It's hard to break into two.

Overall and on top of everything is my family, no matter how important work is, me and my family is and will be the first thing in my life (and God). No matter where my job is at, I always get to it even if it's a thousand miles away as it is to me. I enjoyed the south weather (not too much the over-wetting days) but people have patience and deal with it.

I have to say that since nearly 8 years ago when I was 13 when I arrived to NYC I knew such place will be my spot, no matter if I travel everywhere else my unreplaceable (made up word) will always be here. Now Southwestern Connecticut.
I have been living here over 7 years. Too hard to go alone and start off again somewhere else far away. But that's the requirement of my job and my future life I guess.

Georgia is unique, a state still developing. Raising buildings, expanding cities, growing population, more money, better living and lots and lots of jobs all around.

Btw.. Amtrak does a great job, I love riding the trains. They go very fast in those deep woods of NC, NC and VA. And we arrived half an our earlier than expected to our destination.

I'll be returning to Georgia on Monday 19 to spend the rest of 2013 there. My return will be by car, driving with someone else I came with.


A recently-opened renewed gas station we stopped by today when coming from Stamford Harbor... You can see the overhead sign "Post Road" I live along that road.

Max, those showers heading towards us from the NW have fizzled out. Now no more precip. probably till late next tuesday. Wow Astro, I would have thought that Nashville would have had several 90F plus days. Although I know you guys there have had a lot of rain this summer.

Hi Max, had a brief but strong T.Storm this morning, got about 0.25" of rain from it.Maybe one more shower or T.storm later tonight, about 11pm or so,associated with the cold front itself. This weekend should be great weather, sunny, low humidity, and about 80F both Sat. and Sunday. Tomorrow looks good too, mostly sunny after morning cloudiness and 80-85F

We acted out Act III of A Midsummer Night's Dream by Shakespeare, it was hilarious. We had three girl parts, yet the only girl in our group didn't play any of the three. And we modernized the play. Hilarious. Here was a line:

Demetrius (friend Andy): Helena, you...you're so..beautiful!

Helena (me): No...No I'm not.

(class laughs)


Never read that play...

I did Hamlet's To be or not to be from memory...

It twas alright.

School got new lockers. Well, "hand-me-down" lockers. If the Fire Marshal ever saw our school, he would have most thrown out, the lockers clog the hallways and create more fire hazards than the bleachers at the Super Bowl in Dallas a few years back.

Me and my friends had a good time, I found out I passed my first Calculus test (79) so I'm doing alright academically.

They still had police here since the shooting Monday, but they don't really do any "policing", just stand around and talk to each other.

85 mph... Was the average traffic speed.
They always go faster overnight. Plus we had a long road ahead of us... No police was included in the path of our goal.

Larry, remember, 95 does 55 mph in Stamford. But 70 mph in the woods.

Hi Max , glad you got back safely. I've driven that part of I81/I85 going from Va to N.C. That can be tricky even in good weather in daylight. Pretty steep going down to NC From VA. The Invest chart is basically up to date, just have to fill in some missing data From 90L and 91L--the second go-round of those numbers. My house was in a mess during that time,-- the computer room and another room were painted and the wooden floors sanded and polished, so I didn't get some of the data I need on those two.


Hey Larry.

I took over the steering wheel before reaching Washington DC by midnight. Drove from there, across the Potomac and down to Richmond Virginia. Over 2 hours.

I took a little rest.

After Richmond, being all along I-95 we took exit 51 onto interstate 85. About 5 miles into that highway a major fog slowed us down but the speed limit was 70 and other drivers around didn't care as they "knew" the highway as nearly in a straight line.
I was going at 60 through that. And at 85 mph after entering Virginia up to Richmond.

The Fog cleared up a bit by a town called Charlottesville, VA... I was doing 80-85... Such a major forest that is... Tons and tons of woods. You can look up and see the break in the mountains where the highway go through the fog..
A very great picture I still have in my head...

Bad fog again near VA/NC... Entering NC at exit 233... And knowing I had to do to exit 1. My friend took over when I was at 165.

I have never driven like I did last night. What an adventure I'll never forget.
I saw the Capitol on my way by DC.
