  1. Spoke to friend in New Smyrna. Sounds like only national guard trucks are getting around. Water has not receded at all.
  2. Forgive me if this was posted already. Meanwhile in Miami... WTF..
  3. Friend in New Smyrna Beach says her condo (which is not beach front) has feet of water around it. They are getting pounded. 14" and climbing.
  4. Almost end of the month... https://www.nytimes.com/2022/09/28/us/floridians-stay-ian-projected-path.html?unlocked_article_code=bYGxtNqmb9ST13aVDg6WYLb8kmWuzGazIwowF9xhYnBEYLyvXK_lEvC7cGJzgkgVGHBk_riIVzNbXlSj3cbUHwlJfJEKHd2-4UHy1avvcpXx18bI1uWiet6B8wC-nfeHS9B0sHeDCjM94AyUlTH3i6qQANcr5m2b9VV51SsAncEGqxuSGKMQZnp1M3TCq3vUaMmTAoT5HvrjO1Z3hYIUGR5XtO5SEZEki-ADVQMf8IU1FnGFDB0v9BjMTKT-cdN04HAgeoF8kAlRbQaXS_SvPt9Mid3JZryjJK-VD8Bmu3FYLBje_5Q1jmnNB8mwrt2jYgkybhIS8eEz3iexCZbGsyyU7YqTD9I&smid=share-url
  5. The article wasn't that good. I was going to waste one of my 10 gifts on it, but not worth it.
  6. Am I hallucinating or does it look like the SW part of the eye wall could slide under Charlotte harbor and spare them the worst of the surge? Seems to be moving ENE now...
  7. It looks like Dubai for retired regional sales managers from Ohio.
  8. My father-in-law moved to Port Charlotte in 2012 and he bought into "hurricanes never hit this part of Florida... except for Charlie. But that didn't flood the harbor." We've been trying to prepare him for this for a decade to no avail. He stayed like so many other Fox-news watching, government/expert-hating uncles and grandparents in the area, it seems.
  9. My father in law is riding this out in a house on a canal in Port Charlotte. Could not be convinced to leave.
  10. Is this the thread where we complain about family members in the path who won't evacuate? My father-in-law is at ground zero - on a canal off Port Charlotte harbor...
  11. Not a meteorologist, but I suspect it would cause catastrophic flooding?
  12. Did not… fixed. reasoning is still awful. But he’s a stubborn redneck.
  13. My father in law is right on a canal in Port Charlotte harbor. Has already declared he’s not evacuating based on the fact that Charley’s surge did not flood the area (he wasn’t there at the time).
  14. I don't know why this is a mystery or a debate. Of course it is likely to be a few degrees cooler in Central Park. If you have gone in on a summer morning you can feel the temperature drop when you get in. Whether that is more reflective of the "natural" or "built" environment that people experience is open for interpretation. To Roger's point, I would also imagine this has been exacerbated over time. Bigger, mature trees in Central Park with likely continued pruning and building in the built areas. Anyone in the area knows that the trees in Riverside Park are becoming a serious problem - huge trees and branches fall with no provocation. My own pic...
  15. All of Manhattan about to get clocked top to bottom.
  16. Nomad/Flatiron about to get lit up. Booming thunder with lightning.
  17. Aw man I’ve forgotten what it’s like to watch storms fall apart as they approach Boston.
  18. Still on the Colonnade roof. Turned out to be a great afternoon. Occasional clouds are welcome since I don’t have sunscreen. Widowmaker Blue Comet in hand.
  19. Greatings from Back Bay. Hanging on the rooftop of the Colonnade Hotel under the overcast. Not looking like a great pool day.
  20. Saw the Mish news today. So sad. Always loved her through the 00’s and my days in Boston. RIP.
  21. ok, that 1.6" at KNYC is ridiculous. I was eyeballing a solid 3" + on surfaces around UWS/Riverside Park between 12 and 1.
  22. It's like walking in a salt desert here on the UWS. A dusty haze clouds the sun and leaves your lips salty.
  23. I walked around the quad of a very famous college on the West side late this afternoon - and if those nearly dry, spotless sidewalks are your handiwork, then a tip of the hat to you, good sir... I also walked in some fresh powder in sheltered areas of Riverside... and I'm more open to the idea that it could have been 9-10"
  24. Appreciate the ground truth, but I'd counter by saying that in about 2 hours of walking in Riverside and Central Park I never felt the snow was threatening to top my 8" bean boots. Maybe there was enough compaction... I agree on the impact - it's a colder, denser snow... I think the LE is what always drives that (memories of the 2007 storms in Boston that formed immovable glaciers).
