    Hurricane Florence

    getting ready to head back north knowing that whenever I’m able to get back here my place will be uninhabitable or perhaps gone, this whole place will look totally different, I really feel for the people who have no place to go, it’s ominous knowing that there’s just about guaranteed devastation three days away, it’s surreal, today is an absolutely beautiful day

    Hurricane Florence

    I came to Murrells Inlet SC 3 years ago and there’s been a tropical system every year, Matthew ended up being a cat 1 when it went south of us instead of hitting Myrtle Beach as a 3, there was more than just a little damage, if this place is hit by a 3 or 4 the devastation will be immense, I am less than half a mile from the ocean, at my lofty elevation of 21’ the storm surge could be an issue assuming there’s anything left to be an issue with after 125 mph+ winds, if it hit Long Island and went up the Ct River valley as a cat 3 like in 1938 the damage would be phenomenal, as the saying goes, watch what you ask for, you might get it, at Home Depot there’s a line of trucks loaded with plywood, generators and gas cans, batteries and bottled water are going fast

    Early Winter Banter, Observations & General Discussion 2017

    I’m just a casual observer and to me it seems like this winter has been pretty good for the NW corner of CT so far, had the strong cold front move thru Nov 9 that ended the warm fall, the first flakes 4 days later on the 13th, Snow on Christmas, a very impressive blizzard, extreme cold following that, several minor and not so minor snow and ice events, really what else could you ask for in southern New England? I spend a lot of time in Murrells Inlet South Carolina and the day before the blizzard there was snow and ice that took 4 days to melt, much of the eastern US has had at least some memorable winter weather, to this amateur weather observer It seems like it’s been a pretty respectable winter so far, there is still three weeks left to solar winter and two months till the first day of spring, If the next two months are like what we’ve seen so far it will be a pretty memorable winter IMHO-
