    Is Tropical Storm Michael a threat to New England???????

    What was the approximate diameter of the eye just before the storm made landfall?

    Is Tropical Storm Michael a threat to New England???????

    Much of this line of thinking comes from the way most people's brain's process things, particularly with regard to occurrences that are not necessarily set in stone and that they are unable to truly quantify. People take whatever info they hear on the radio, or see on websites, twitter feeds, and the t.v., and that worst (or best) case scenario becomes instantly ingrained within their conscious. The weather/ news outlets are partially to blame as well. I think that the producers and those behind the scenes know how easily the public can get hooked on an event, especially if the extreme outcome is laid out there. When Michael was making landfall I was at the gym, and within a 90 minute span the storm went from cat 4 to cat 3...but, all that CNN was noting was that the storm made landfall "Near Cat 5". This headline went on for a few hours after that. The whole, "Near Cat 5" was almost all they were focused on. They WANTED so badly to keep using that has the headline. Just say Category 4. On the other hand there are reasonable minded people who are able to take the data and logically sort through what is given, and knowing that forecasting is not an exact science not become so biased towards one outcome or another.

    What is that image supposed to be that the route number is on? Looks like a Vaseline jar.

    Countdown to Winter 2018 -2019

    I had an owl suicide bomb my car 2 nights ago. Thing was huge. Didn't have a prayer though once it hit. I got out to see if it was o.k., but it died a slow death in front of me...staring at me with those creepy owl eyes.

    Countdown to Winter 2018 -2019

    I was in college in RI those 4 years and while there was some snow, I recall the rain and misery mist being the seasonal trend for many of those winter months (I nicknames Rhode Island Rain Island the entire time I was there). Awful. I was living in DC from 93 through 97 and I remember coming back to school one of those winters, either 93-94 or 94-95 and Newport to Bristol were buried when I came. Cars were literally buried like you would see after a Boston blizzard. I think it was a series of storms that just never missed R.I.

    Nothing quite like tug hill over to stillwater in winter, especially when the temps and wind are just right.

    They mentioned 7 on the news yesterday, but I am not sure if that was before any confirmations from this week. Either way a total wet dream come true for Wiz.
