    Not an eye. The actual center is still squarely over the island, not just off of the island.

    Could still get a splitter lol.

    Whether I get 2" or a tenth, it wont make much difference in the ultimate outcome for the grass, but a good storm with some  booming T&L would be fun. Seems like its been forever. The remnants of Elsa late last week was a good soaker, but totally boring otherwise.

    Usually there are a bunch of towering cumulus that look like they might become storms at 1 PM, only for the entire cumulus field to slowly fall apart by 5 PM. The sun gets progressively more clouded as the anvils from thunderstorms out west inch their way over and the final outcome is a couple lightning bolts, moderate rain and cool clouds to boot. 

    That's at least how it was half the time back on the Delmarva

    Well, that aggressive outer band fell apart, and all we got was a sprinkle around sunrise. Now a very light easterly wind and sunny. 

    That being said, we're getting tons of daytime heating now, and when the next convergence bands roll in it will probably be an explosive squall event. Might take till many hours from now for that to happen tho, since radar is pretty much empty between here and Cuba.

    I guess the real storminess will start here tonight once Elsa enters the Florida straits.

    But aren't you in space?

    • Toilet paper - check (From COVID panic)
    • Water - check (Leftover from Irma in gallon jugs a little shrunken)
    • Canned food - check (from many years of storms)
    • Batteries - check (Every year, every season)
    • Beer - Time to stock up! (Never enough)

    That has been a pre-requisite in my new home since i moved down here.
