    Searching for Fall

    And the Chiggers, and the ticks, and now the stink bugs are looking to get back inside. HORRIBLE year for bugs!!

    Searching for Fall

    Who cares about temps being in the 60's and 70's when it is only because of heavy fog and rainy conditions. This has to be overall the most crappy year of weather I can remember. And at this point, if I dont get my extended fall, I sure as heck dont want to dive straight into a cold and snowy winter. Groundhog day forecast for much of this week and weekend. Bring on October.

    2018 Banter Thread

    I'm pretty sure the site was down so long that we missed fall and our early winter storms. Time for the spring 2019 forecast. Seriously, is there an explanation posted somewhere. Did the site get hacked or was it server issues?

    Hurricane Florence

    Not saying the pic above isnt bad, it certainly has an impact. But in reality the houses and infrastructure still stand. The beach and dunes were basically moved 100 feet inland and covered the road. This happens with many storms and can easily be fixed. Its the water damage and flooding pics that resonate with me the most. There is simply no recovery. Roads must be reconstructed, not just repaved. Sewer and water lines, gas lines, electrical wires, homes, cars, livestock, literally everything.

    Hurricane Florence

    24 hours x 2 in some places. Here in the triad we had between 6-8" over roughly a 36 hour run. The Dan River up in Danville VA was near its all time high I think. There were many places, almost the entire sandhills region SE of Raleigh down to the coast, that received steady rainfall for 48 hours or more. There are rivers cresting this morning over 30' above flood stage next to towns with zero elevation. New Bern, Kinston, Jacksonville. And even littler towns like Pollocksville NC which may cease to exist after this. An unprecendented catastrophy. Flo made her mark in history.

    Radar is loaded for the triad now. Just drove back from VA through Danbury and Walnut Cove. Lots of big branches coming out of trees into the roads. Lots of road flooding out of ditches. The Dan River was as high as I have seen in a long while and there will be inches of rain still to fall over the next day or so. Gonna get ugly. Also, Forsyth County schools 2 hr delay tomorrow.

    Hurricane Florence

    Good grief is Flo even moving anymore? She is still drinking off the atlantic like a 7-11 big gulp. The radar is loaded for another 6-8 hours. If feel for those folks down east, but now I'm starting to worry about the folks around CLT and across the southern piedmont. The flooding is going to get scary bad real quick tomorrow with another 6-12" to go. There is just no way to prepare for this type of destruction across an entire state.

    If I made it to 95 here in the triad in mid sept after the summer we've all had across the southeast........i just dont wanna say. But it might be on the 11 oclock news.

    Searching for Fall

    Yeah, but just like we had no spring, I definitely dont wanna give up my fall. Best time of the year! If we go from 80's to 50's me and mother nature are gonna have a chat. (She'll win of course)

    Not gonna happen looking at the radar. Florence still dropping the hammer for many more hours. She's still feeding off the ocean. If the flooding wasnt already out of control, it sure will be by the end of today. If anyone has family left in that area that has not evacuated, get them out. This cleanup will take weeks, not hours, not days.

    Those poor folks in SeNC. Look at the neverending fetch on radar. They are getting destroyed with rain right now and likely for the 12 hours. Easily another foot of rain. Then they have to worry about how much falls west of them. Florence has left a very, very large mark on the state.

    Has a precautionary feel to it. It really isnt bad at all across the triad....fortunately.

    No way they would recommend Hickory. There have to be 15-20 routes south you could take before that. Just go 64 to Raleigh and then South to Fayetteville. If they were only recommending interstates then they wouldnt have to go further than 85 to Charlotte and then back to 95. Hickory is crazy. Who recommended that?

    The downstream flooding with this will be historic. The flooding that occured as a result of surge in places like Kinston and New Bern was bad enough. I worry they havent seen the worst. 3/4ths of the state is going to get 5+" of rain. Most of the upstream network will get more than that. And the rivers were already running high from rains earlier last week. A lot of folks still need to be evacuating.

    Per radar, it should be hammering in raleigh right now. Anybody have a report or is everyone without power?
