  1. 9th annual Lawn Thread 2018

    Cucumber beetles are out and feasting already.
  2. Spring 2018 banter

    Driving in the snow is great in most cases. It's somehow relaxing and stimulating at the same time.
  3. Such a specific number. Albany confirmed an EF1 from near Saugerties to just over the east bank of the river near Clermont SP. That's the cell I tried to stay on from shortly after rotation started showing up on radar. I had a good vantage point toward the NW from Burger Hill around the estimated time the tornado was on the ground... it certainly was not the high-base, low-precip meso you'd see in eastern CO or southern AB. The storm must have just got done cycling by the time I got into the hail core.
  4. Spring 2018 banter

    99% of people rest on the crutch of "snow sux, I'm moving to Florida lol" for all their conversation-starting needs from November to May, so if you don't like snow, then it's very appropriately rated
  5. Another one. There's no way you'd recognize these things as tornadoes in real time, but still, very impressive. Could be more on the way as well.
  6. EF2 confirmed in Putnam, I'm guessing near Lake Carmel?
  7. May 15 2018 Severe Threat SNE

    Is that where the '89 tornado took down the last old growth hemlocks in New England? I think Ryan has a few writeups about that but I don't remember many specifics
  8. It really has been a damaging few months in the region. My condolences to those with property damage and power outages tonight... that was about as wild as you'll see for severe in the northeast. I'm excited to have been able to experience and document what was likely the largest hail I'll ever see in the northeast, but it sucks that it all comes at a high cost for lots of folks.
  9. Not good. Hope it isn't too extensive.
  10. Whoops, you got buried in my notifications. Anyway, yup, that's me!

    Quite a few folks swearing they saw a funnel and tornado damage in southern Dutchess, along the Beacon-Hopewell corridor. Would be nice to get some pictures but that tornado warned couplet did look the part, so I'm not ruling it out.

    Cool to see my hail shots from Columbia making the rounds. Seriously intense storm, truck is covered in dents. Definitely some stones bordering on baseballs.
  13. I have a whole schedule in the works of outdoor events where I'm selling my photo prints (beginning with this Saturday), so congrats all on the lush lawns and full wells this summer.

    A bit eye-catching for my area on Tuesday afternoon.

    Some handheld lightning this evening. Double rainbow was just a bit off the left side of the frame.
