  1. Myrtle Beach looks decent.
  2. Haven't had strong winds out of the south for a while. By strong I mean 55-60 mph 3 seconds. My front door faces south and has a weather stripping under the bottom that sings loud like someone playing a kazoo very badly. It's quite hilarious. I was getting excited Sun night when it was getting close to 40 but no cigar.

    Rohn 25G tower. The anemometer needs to be 33' AGL.

    Highest max winds so far this year! Peak 59.9 at 10:03AM. Still gusting 55.8 as of 17:37. Very gusty profile.
  5. Yes for us MOD is rare. I do remember back in 1998 we got clobbered with baseball sized stones. We were in the hatched area but didn't get the damaging winds they got to the north and west. But those hailstones are damaging enough. Marbles with the occasional golf ball mixed in is OK. Once they get tennis ball sized it's not fun any more.
  6. And probably the last? Slight is best we usually see.

    Down to 38F here, light to moderate rain showers. Going to light the pellet stove.

    Mud season in full swing here. Just a shower and puddles everywhere. SE Winds gusting to 25mph and low 40s. Quite raw outside.
  10. Careful what you wish for! (remember the movie Click?) Imagine us actually getting decent tropical, Derecho redux... There are some things using that skip button would be good for. Holidays and traffic come to mind.

    I noticed this as well but it stopped. 4-7" and ending by midnight? Going to be some serious rates! May even beat the 2/19 event.

    Same here. Glaze on trees is beautiful.

    Worst here was last night. Also see the HWW canceled, WA in effect. Besides the occasional gust, average is very low for a "wind event" here. We tend to bust frequently on legitimate wind (sustained) that is. This is certainly nothing like last March for sure. Which, TBH, is good for us as we have a lot of tree work to do and I don't want to deal with a costly insurance claim when they come down. And that video, FTS. Too much rolling for me. Rolling on a ship is bad enough but the period is much shorter on an airliner. Multiple replays of breakfast is no fun.
