We need rain
Really, it's very dry down here, has been all summer. Here is the rainfall for the past month. Interesting to see the bullseye in Ocean County where they got between 5" to 8" rain. Meanwhile, I live in the "dry belt" with amounts ranging from 0.5" to 2". I would say that my home has received towards the upper end of that amount. But the woods are really dry and the creek is low although I've seen worse.
Here is the USGS waterwatch map that shows dry conditions throughout the pines. This is not nearly so bad as it has been at other times over the past few years though. Interesting that it doesn't seem to have much relation to the rain totals over the past month, it's almost the opposite. I think these maps are based on streamflow.
TD#8 recently formed off NC. Depending if it moves in the right direction there may be some relief. Getting a bit more active.
Looking like this weekend.
Sounds about right. Dry as a bone for months, then the weekend of my big party it rains.
Another take from Accuweather.
A flip of the coin only time will tell
Well maybe we can get through Saturday at least before the storm hits...
**Hermine to affect the region this weekend**
It is a big storm right now with a large amount of rainfall. Saturday should tell the tale.
My daughter is just this minute boarding a plane for Florida. It was delayed 10 minutes but still going. Just got a text from her.
May be a long flight going around the storm. If you have the flight # you can track it at this site;
Lots of planes in the air tonight
About 10:33PM according to the airlines.
I left Las Vegas with a hurricane coming up making landfall around Virginia. I was afraid that the flight would be canceled. To my surprise it wasn't. To quote my flight attendant " It's only wind and rain....that's nothing". Surprisingly it was a very smooth ride until the final approach which was moderately bumpy. The shuttle ride home from the airport was more eventful with power outages and trees down.
Either way, safe travels
They have a live map in the plane so you can see where you are. There is quite a bit of turbulence from time to time. Right now it isn't so bad. It looks like we are at the very top of Florida now just below South Carolina. We seem to be heading towards the ocean a bit more
Global wind map
A good site for current updates. I have seen some reports cautioning it might become Sandy like.
As today is my daughter's 10th birthday the weather is very similar. Though it was a different track I spent most of the day in the hospital listening to the windows rattle. I was a Labor Day washout , at least the first half, just like this one.
