There was an interesting bench in the waiting area-

It is the height of the summer season so it is not good that this weekend may be a washout. :(
Saturday
A 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. Cloudy, with a high near 80. Light and variable wind becoming southeast around 6 mph in the morning.

Saturday Night
Showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm. Cloudy, with a low around 69. East wind 3 to 5 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible.

Sunday
Showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm. Cloudy, with a high near 79. East wind 6 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
Due to the forecast-


The threat of rain Saturday morning has led to the annual Cardboard Boat Race to be postponed until Sunday, Aug. 26, according to Riverhead Supervisor Laura Jens-Smith.
This is the 2nd postponement this year. Since the race was scheduled to begin at 9AM tomorrow most competitors will have already finished building their boats. There are usually about 100 competitors and over 1000 spectators. The highlight of the event is the NoFo/SoFo grudge match between the Town Supervisors of Southampton and Riverhead. The Peconic River, where the race is held, is the boundary between the two towns.

In the summer down here, we just assume the % chance of rain actually means the % of the day it will rain. It's 20%ing pretty good out there right now.

After about a hour's lull we have rain again. :?

It was a good call to postpone the cardboard boat races which would be starting now.

The upside? No lawnmowers! A Saturday w/o lawnmowers. :-D

Have moved out to the porch to watch the rain.

A heavier band of rain is now over Nassau County. It is headed this way.

I can hear that there is almost no traffic on Main Rd. So far no helicopters. People don't love the East End very much when it is raining. :(

This is a Circle Weather Center special report.

The sun is shining and the rain is falling. The weather is confused this morning. ;)

So your seasons are wet, really wet, and covered in snow?? :rotflmao:


The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.

More here, too. Last Friday I clicked on the local news about 5:30 in the afternoon to see a news truck broadcasting at the bottom of our road as it was flooded out! :eek2:
