  1. Soupy, soupy, soupy. Feels good when there’s a breeze, pretty uncomfortable when there’s not.
  2. 69mph gust in Blue Point. Impressive We’re not as far out east as that but my neighbors who leave all their stuff out because they don’t obsess over the weather like some others, had all their backyard stuff broken up and tossed all over.
  3. Wind really kicking in Jamaica. Seems higher than what was forecasted.
  4. If this was Summer time, I’d be getting socked right now. Pretty impressive thunderstorm considering how chilly it was earlier. My floor shook from the thunder before.
  5. Wow. This is awesome. The wind stops for just a second and it’s like suspended animation.
  6. Shit to my west looks like it’s about to get real. Crazy, ominous, sky.
  7. It’s funny you say that. I don’t even think there was a severe warning even given out that night. I remember watching the Mets game and the storm blew through there and was probably moving west-to-east about 55-60mph. I saw the 2nd gust out my back door, before it started raining and saw, literally, everything in my backyard get picked up. 3rd gust, knocked the tree down.
  8. System pulling away? I just got 2 monster gusts from the west. Both had to be more than 50mph.
  9. They ended up keeping them home the whole day. Couldn’t get the power going. Not the entire district, just their school.
  10. I bet the Aug ‘19 storm was the same that took out the tree that hit my house. Micro/down burst about 9 or 10pm right? I think we hit 92mph that night iirc.
  11. It’s nuts, isn’t it? I’ve always had an interest in the weather. A fascination with what Mother Nature can do and, even, the wrath of what she’s capable of. Even when I was really young. Saying that, I can never remember these numerous and constant wind events, even into my 20s. Yeah, yeah, we’d get the occasional tropical system, the occasional Nor’easter, the typical Summer-time severe thunderstorms…but I can never remember getting constantly battered by wind events every month like we have for the past 10-15 years (that seem to get more severe as time goes by)…like you pointed out. I know a lot of you like seeing weather do what it can do, and I’m certainly guilty of it too. But…this direction our area is going in is, frankly, a scary one, and, I fear, only going to get worse. Our ocean temperatures go up a degree every summer. The 60mph gusts become a little more unsurprising. The tornadoes become a more regular occurrence. Etc etc. The fact anyone can argue with science just, simply, blows my mind. It’s frightening actually how people can deny the undeniable.
  12. I’ve mentioned it before…I had 6 trees when I bought my house in 2008, I’m down to 1. 4 were brought down by the wind. Off the top of my head, one came down and destroyed everything in my back yard (July of 2010) and another one hit my house, put a hole in my roof, bounced off and destroyed my porch and even smashed the windshield of my car. (August of 2019) I’m just so done with this shit.
  13. My kids’ school has a delayed 2-hour opening because of no power with the possibility of it being closed all day depending on whether it comes back on or not.
  14. I’m pretty sure we’re getting one a month now. It doesn’t even matter what time of the year it is.
  15. Another 60+mph wind event…ho-hum, nothing to see here
