The humidity here yesterday was 73%. Today it's down to a mere 57%. It's 90 F. The real feel is 101. :cussing:

AN EF-2 tornado hit Johns Island, right off the coast of Charleston, SC. No reports of human fatalities or injuries, although the damage on Sonny Boy Lane is extensive.



One family reports that their cat woke them before the tornado hit. Good kitty!

It has been a very dry summer and early fall here on the North Fork but from today thru Sunday there is a 30% to 100% chance of rain. :thumbs:

TS Joaquin looks to be headed directly at the North Fork!!!!!!! Guess I better find my towel. :towel:

Updated. Track now a little further to the east :) but the forecast intensity is higher. :?

Updating again. Now the track looks more like a direct hit on the North Fork. :(

Hmm, that must be why we're going to be getting all this rain tonight, tomorrow and Thursday. I figured we were just getting it because we had absolutely perfect weather last week for the World Meeting of Families and the papal visit.

All that coming rain is coming from the west. TS Joaquin, if it hits here, will be on top of that.

Ah, I didn't check from whence our rain is coming. Well, it's fall. We usually get a lot of rain in early fall.

Mrs. V. and I are taking a bus trip to the New York Botanical Garden in The Bronx tomorrow. Being a garden most of it is outdoors. Guess we better bring umbrellas. ;)

I'll keep an eye out for Harrison J. Bounel. ;)

And that big swath of yellow in west central virginia is the 2-4 inches of rain predicted for the Shenandoah overnight. Last time we got that much rain, a little tiny branch fell into the wet-weather stream, a whole bunch of leaves piled up behind it, and the whole stream changed course and took out a swath of our road. We repaired the road and dug out the stream bed to return it to its original course. Fingers crossed.

I'm in Bathysphere or wherever it is my dad lives. Suburb of our nation's capital, I know that much. I went to high school here.

High today 75, 30% chance of rain, moon waning gibbous, 92% visible (at night, that is).

Tomorrow's high 59, rain, rain, rain and more rain. We'll prolly go to museums and such.

We will be getting cooler temperatures, rain and 24 to 37 mph winds starting late Thursday.

Then there is that hurricane which may reach us Monday. However the latest forecast shows the hurricane hitting Foggy in NC.

I and all North Forkers would like to thank Foggy for instructing the Fogbow weather controllers to position landfall in his area so he can use his rooster powers to dissipate the storm. :thumbs:

So tomorrow I'm going to have to drive 300+ miles in the rain. There's 100% chance of rain here, 100% in Rawly, and 100% everywhere between.

I hate driving on a freeway in the rain. Can't see far enough ahead. Requires total concentration. Dangerous as hell.

Oh dear. Current forecast track shows Joaquin aiming directly at the North Fork. :(

Image

OK. Deep discharge RV battery is being charged. Inverters are ready. Extra flashlight and radio batteries have been purchased. All flashlights have been checked. Three battery-powered radios have been checked. Minivan gas tank is full. Got extra cash from the bank. Got fresh bottle of bourbon and more red wine. (Already had plenty of beer.) Catching up on laundry now.

If it stays on track the storm will hit Tuesday morning. Our dinner party for tomorrow evening is a go. Mrs. V's rehearsal on Saturday is a go. Mrs. V's cousin who lives down by the bay and her husband are on Block Island until Tuesday and will be stuck there in which case they will not need to evacuate to our place in the event of coastal flooding. Sadly he just laid down 90 new bottles of his homemade red wine under his house. :( He is not there to move them. Perhaps they will come back early. ;)
