  1. Possible Infection of Site

    I agree. The only new app / and site I have been using the last few weeks is Amazon. Wonder if it's something with them or one of their 3rd party sellers?
  2. Possible Infection of Site

    I have been getting it on my all my phones, and my laptops for this site, Fox News, AP News, and a Vaping site I am on since last weekend. Its beyond annoying.
  3. Thank you for posting this. My son (14) has in the last year really has got into weather and wants to be a meteorologist very badly. He will spent hours looking up past weather events and studying storm tracks and why they did what they did. What would be his best coarse for getting a jump on things, and what class's should he in high school (Next year) be his main focus? He is a very smart kid. Luckily he loves research, history, and math. Thanks for any advice.

  6. Major Hurricane Irma- STORM MODE

    Ok it's been heading North for several hours and is still heading north....would that not effect the track? I would think they would have brought the cone a bit eastward.
  7. Hurricane Irma Local Impacts/Evacuations

    We are. 15 miles southeast ILM and 20 miles from the coast of Oak Island NC.
  8. Hurricane Irma Local Impacts/Evacuations

    I am wondering about possible impacts for the Wilmington NC area? I am 10 miles west of ILM, Lucky for us we are at 75 feet above sea level so no flooding here. But winds concern me. Any inputs?
  9. Major Hurricane Irma

    Is there a point they would not fly into the core?
  10. Must have iOS apps

    RadarScope is worth every penny. Get the Tier one upgrade.
  11. Major Hurricane Irma

    Amazingly terrifying..... This could if it hits the Miami area and or the Everglades change the landscape for generations.
  12. Major Hurricane Irma

    My uncle who has a house in Key West said the cop that lives next told him at the 2 pm advisory if it is stronger they are being told the state will issue a full and complete mandatory evacuation of all the FL keys effective by noon tomorrow.
  13. I think part over it is the younger generation who are very very misinformed and gullible. And people teaching our kids who are way in left field. A neighbors kid (Freshman at the local CC.) was told by his professor that yes something like A day after Tomorrow could happen and likely will, and that Al Gores movie had more facts in it than any other source. I showed him otherwise and asked how old his professor was. 28. And what was he teaching? Political Studies. We do not need idiots like him teaching. We need our kids to learn facts. Not some Hollywood BS.
  14. Mid to Long Term Discussion 2017

    Taking what I was told with a grain of salt but based on the possible summer forecast of cool and wet summer maybe there is something to this... I noticed on the highway the last several days and in town a lot of NCDOT crews cleaning out and redigging a lot of the storm drains. Today they were near where I filled up so I went and asked what was up. The foreman said they were told to clean out all major road way drains and ditchs because they were expecting a very heavy rain fall amount this summer. Who knows but it is kinda odd.
  15. I am wondering if anyone will make a VR weather app with the technology and cell phones are getting more advanced. It would be awesome to have full view and ability to see a storm in 3D and exact direction you look at. I imagine its a few years off but wow it would be a game changer.
