Welcome to my blog!!! Comments are Welcomed !!!


THIS SITE Does NOT reflect the official forecasts of the National Hurricane Center, when making decisions, please heed the advisories and evacuation statements of your local National Weather Service Office and the National Hurricane Center



A little about my self -

I joined weather Underground in August of 2005 right after they opened the blogging feature. I have been a weather hobbyist since the middle 60's when I lived on the west coast of Florida, north of the Tampa Bay area. I currently live in a small community in central Illinois.

I have been through numerous Hurricanes during my life time. The worse being Hurricane Camille in August 17,1969, A Cat 5, where the eye passed over the location I was at. That being Biloxi, Ms when I was in the USAF stationed at Keesler AFB.

Wabits 2012 Hurricane Forecast Prediction

Total Storms . 15
Hurricanes .... 8
Intense ....... 4

Thank You for visiting my blog !


Please if you are in a evacuation zone .. please leave .. you will be placing yourself and family in harms way if you stay .. on top of the surge waves will be crashing on shore .. and that is what will push the water inland further then expected .. small streams and rivers could easily flood with the 6 to 10 inches they are calling for in some locations ..

Quoting Skyepony:
Happy Halloween Wabit! The sentiment was shared between more than one neighbor tonight we dodged a really bad one in FL. Few Million in damages, mostly beach erosion. We did get our Halloween & it was fantastic. Wore out.


Yes Florida did ok on this one but they have been so many others .. glad you had a Happy Halloween !!

Sandy made landfall in southern NJ tonight causing wide spread flooding and wind damages .. major cities were well covered by the news but after daylight we will be able to tell the real damage ..

I saw where 13 people have now lost their lives due to Sandy's storm effects in the US and Canada ..

Hi Wab, walked out this morning and could have sworn I smelled snow! Wow. We will probably feel the effects of this storm for sure. Maybe I'll go over and take pics of Lake Michigan Tues. Prayers up for all our Wu friends out East and in the way of this monster.
