  1. Desicion makers in Floriduh will never do the right thing, because they are corrupt and their moto is private proffits over public interests. Have sat across the table from them & the developers too many years begging them to do the right thing and they never do, they pay millions for studies they ignore, and use greed as their guide. Too many humans get their rocks off over death and destruction, and create war to continue that high, and to feed the greed. Think that may be why tropical cyclones are given human names, humans envy the power of destruction. Ian destroyed this area, and it fu#%ing sucks.
  2. I just wanted to thank everyone for all the work they do posting information about all the storms on this forum, as it makes it much easier to monitor what is going on when all the info is in one place. I also appreciate all the storm chasers who show us videos of what we can expect, which is both educational and motivating, it helps one to gauge what they can handle and to get things done in a hurry when preparing for a storm. I would also like to thank the chasers like Josh who help collect important information about these storms. So often the chasers are demeaned but I have learned a lot from the chase posts and videos. To anyone else who may be affected by this storm I wish you the best. Going to go freak out now and start trimming branches, and tying things down.
  3. Thanks for posting this, even though it is freaking me out. I am just north of the Caloosahatchee river near the Charlotte/Lee County line about 25 miles inland and we are in what South Florida Water Management District calls the Northern Everglades with seasonal sheetflow flooding. We flood every summer for 3 to 16 1/2 months [with an added wet winter}, and the county keeps allowing development and the filling of the floodplain so instead of the average 18 inches of water found in the Everglades we have had 20-22 inches the past few weeks with all the recent heavy rain and during a major event there can 31-33 inches{can last a week or two or go down a 1/2 inch a day} as there was for TS Ernesto 2006, and Irma. So it will be really interesting and terrifying if this model comes to fruition. I am still trying to figure out why I moved to Florida when I was 20 something in 1981, thought it would be like Hawaii{Army brat in high school there}, I was mortally wrong, as it more resembles hell in the twilight zone, a more intense version of damnation.
  4. The Area Forcast Discussion pasted below for the Tampa area mentions the SAL. It is hazy here in the FT Myers/SW Florida area too. You can also see it on the Satellite images. https://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=TBW&issuedby=TBW&product=AFD&format=CI&version=1&glossary=1 Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Tampa Bay Ruskin FL 246 PM EDT Wed Aug 10 2022 ...New DISCUSSION, AVIATION, MARINE, FIRE WEATHER... .DISCUSSION... Issued at 243 PM EDT Wed Aug 10 2022 Ridging will remain to our north for the rest of the work week however the bigger factor of the weather across the area will be the Saharan Dust Layer that will be over the area. This will help to keep us drier with PW`s generally at or below 1.5. This will help to shut down almost all of our seabreeze thunderstorm activity for the rest of the week. However, it is summer so will still keep an isolated chance of showers and storms each day as a few storms will manager to get through the drier air.
  5. Made a screen shot of Delta's tail. Wishing you luck in dealing with this storm.
