  1. A nuclear weapon is unsurvivable and yet there were a few people who survived Hiroshima and Nagasaki improbably. A pyroclastic flow is unsurvivable and yet one person survived one in Martinique in 1902. The exceptions don’t disprove the rule. .
  2. Route 133 in Bridgewater. 700+ ASL. Plus incredible vistas to the south and west. Unbeatable for watching incoming.
  3. But no “trouble” here. (And my little slice of SNE actually is within 70 miles of NYC [emoji3]) Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. 2 things: Walt’s thinking as laid out in that thread is dependent upon the center of the remnant low passing within 70 miles of (in his case) NYC. Also, he doesn’t indicate that this will be “trouble” (other than maybe for marine interests), but rather an opportunity for much needed rainfall. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. I am not as enthusiastic about these storms as I once was. I’ll leave it at that as I don’t want to get into the “is it bad to hope for a Cat 4 in SNE” type discussion. But, suffice it to say, even the 50-60kts we saw here was sufficient to do a lot of damage. And I don’t see CT cutting down all the trees or burying the electric service anytime soon...

  6. The 1,000,000+ people who lost power in Connecticut, NY and NJ from Isaias would beg to differ. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I am in Litchfield County. Maybe somebody got 14". Hard to really tell with all the blowing, but I'd say I'm at 8-10" max. But the deform band is passing overhead for the second time today and we have +SN.
  8. Ivan crossed near Atlanta in 2004. I lived in Alpharetta at the time. Big Creek (so called; normally you can jump over it) flooded big time. I believe we got close to a foot of rain over about a 12-15 hour period
  9. Remember, its not just a question of getting in - the airline does not want its equipment stranded there for several days. So, even if conditions are conducive to a safe landing, if the subsequent flight going out on that equipment is iffy, they'll just cancel the inbound and stage the aircraft elsewhere til things get cleaned up.
  10. 300 miles? Try 25! Pouring in New Milford,CT and a foot of snow in Katonah, NY
