  • Well here we go again.

    Fred the friendly tropical storm is coming to visit. And it looks like his sister Grace is going to be right behind him. Fred looks like it will just be a warm up as the season opener. Grace looks like she will have more time over the warm waters of gulf to build. Oh well November is less than 90 days a way.

    Storm shutters went up for the last near miss. Never took them down with the anticipation that something like this would occur!

      We wintered on the southern coast of NC a few years back the house we rented had remote controlled exterior storm shutters that deployed like a roller blind. Great for taking an afternoon nap. Stay safe guys.

          Just saw in the paper that Baton Rouge (close to me) has already exceeded our average annual rainfall of 65 inches. We may get some more from Fred and Grace, but not near as much as Randy.

            I’m just lucky I guess Claude! Your are a head of us Claude, we are at 54” so far this year. Maybe I will catch up on Monday.

              Well, Randy, looks like you'll get a soaking and catch up with Claude and me! Doesn't look like the winds will be too bad, though, but it's good you have that fine new generator to handle the power outages.

                Sadly Arthur it is in transit, scheduled for installation in the next 10 days. Looks like we well have to do Fred & Grace old school. Don’t think Fred will be much of a issue. Grace is still a unknown. If she slows down in the gulf who knows. I just looked at models, Grace could make it to you and Claude. Well Fred moving east again. Who knows where it will come in?

                  Randy, I thought your generator was a done deal! Oh well, all of us on the Coast know how to deal with these storms, as you say "old school." Like you said, Fred shouldn't be much of a problem, and hopefully Grace will pass us all by. I really feel sorry for those poor folks in Haiti...one thing after another, storms, earthquakes, murderous government, now another storm, possibly two...I don't know how they cope.

                  Best of luck!

                    Amen Arthur. Haiti has had more than their share of trouble. The Generator has been on order sense early Dec. Like so many things pandemic cut backs in workers and transportation have slowed down parts to delivery.

                      Depends on where you live.
                      It's actually raining here today at 53N. Such an unusual sound, woke me up when it started at 6 AM.
                      Southern 1/3 of BC has been cremated with more to come. Whole towns reduced to ashes.
                      We have 20% of normal rainfall so dangerously dry until today.
                      Forecast is to rain all day, very badly needed. Makes us all quite happy to stomp in the puddles.
                      15C, calm, mountains are outlines in smoke again.

                      Hope your gen set arrives in working condition. More and more people here are doing that for all the power failures that we get during the year.

                      The police station had a generator. Fairly important, as you can well imagine.
                      Somebody shut it off and stole it.

                        Glad your getting the rain. Fires so bad in the north west. These days it seems taking what others work for is OK. New rules on entitlement. Why work for what others have to offer.

                          The southern middle part of our province, British Columbia, is the northern end of the great desert system that stretches all the way south west through the US and into Mexico. So, it's already sage-brush dry to begin with. Irrigation and orchards, vineyards and gardens just explode with green.

                          250+ fires, some big ones got away with the wind, heat and no rain. Highway blacktop is burning, power lines are getting fried and there's no relief in sight, such as even a freak rainstorm.

                          500 miles to the north where I live, we have had drought conditions with just about total outdoor fire bans of all kinds except propane grills. Not even tiki torches!

                          This rainy Sunday is quite a novelty in a district where some summers, it rains every second day.

                            Well it appears that Fred and Grace are not coming to Mobile and that works for me. I am glad the are going to end up minimal storms for those who do have to deal with them. Grace is really a unknown. She gets in to the middle of the gulf she may get mean but they do not seem to think so right now. Last year was enough for the central gulf for a while.

                              I think the Gulf Coast is probably safe from Grace - appears headed to Southern Mexico. A bigger worry may be H1 Linda, headed toward the North shore of Hawaii. Lots of rain for Dileon maybe...
