  1. Was building towards dark. Some bigger waves than this lurking, but a few representative ones. Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  2. Interesting to see the readings on the buoys down south. Bermuda (~33 ft) and Hatteras buoys have been solidly above forecast. 14 sec energy has started to show in RI waters, above initial forecasts. Shouod get up to 17 plus tomorrow. https://playbuoy.web.app/ ^Good buoy UI which shows buoy readings with full component breakdown and comparison to gfs wave forecast for that buoy location.

  3. Finally one connecting a little on south coast of RI Edit: well 5 miles north of south coast. True south coast got missed?
  4. Just a note, but it has been one of the flattest August's (surf-wise) I can remember in RI. Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  5. Ran some errands up there and it was pouring, meanwhile 0.15 so far at the house by the south coast. Home stations 7 miles NW with over 1.25 inches. 0.88 inches MTD. Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  6. Only 0.07 in in the gauge in Narragansett, while >1" in West Kingston. Pain. Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  7. June was decent here with 4", July: 0.68, and Aug 0.73 MTD. Nice magnolia in our yard is dying. Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  8. Home station hit dewpoint >80 for first time (only 3 years old). Dewpoint of 80.1 and heat index of 112. Hoping it peaked here.
  9. Coworker had to replace his evap coil in his attic. Said it was 120 up there and he had to set a 10 minute timer. 86/78 Sent from my SM-S901U using Tapatalk
  10. 61 and overcast at our house in S. RI. Wife is 10 miles northwest and it's 77 and sunny. Feels bad. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. Some decent wind, gusting over 30 at home (s. RI) Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. Yes, but that is the distribution side of things, not operating the grid. Texas had a grid capacity issue, not a distribution infrastructure issue. The more analogous party in new england to the Texas issue is ISO-NE who operates our grid. To your point distribution across New England is crap ( managed by CMP, Eversource, National grid, etc) Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  13. A concern, but we are a little more resilient to cold temps than ERCOT (tx). Their nat gas generation and supply fell off line due to cold temps, while we are weatherized however just constrained from a supply perspective (pipeline capacity, competition with heating, etc). Most of our generators are dual fuel which means we can run on oil, making us sensitive financially (running on oil is expensive) but less from a generating capacity and resiliancy side. That speaks nothing to the distribution side of the grid where we suck, but that is different from blackouts and load shedding like ERCOT had to do. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  14. Vacation flight out of pvd at 6 am with a tight connect and no flight options after the connection for 24 hours. Starting to get uneasy (good for everyone else though). Wait a few model runs and hope to beat the cold press out of town, or try and make alternate arrangements? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  15. Nothing like Taunton, but a good blanket here Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
