  1. Indeed! The amount of rain that fell in such a short amount of time...wow! Geisinger Medical Center's ER was flooded with water.
  2. Visiting my family in Danville, PA (You know, the reason it's been in the cool 70s all week in upstate NY...lol). I really think a rain-wrapped tornado went through here at 9:30 this morning. During the storm, I was watching the wind blow from the west for 10 minutes...then all of a sudden it shifted briskly from the east for 5 minutes. Flooding, hail, and wind damage around. No warning whatsoever. Chainsaws being used all over before this next storm moves in.
  3. Sure! I am trying to share the radar image, but it keeps telling me it's too big. I can hear chainsaws going all over...trying to clean up quick before this next storm moves in.

  5. Fall above normal? Say it ain't so. Pretty soon that will just be the normal fall temps with all the warm ones we have had.
  6. Back up close to 90 again all next week. Uggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
  7. Yikes....I wouldn't have wanted to be on the Thruway while that rolled over.
  8. There you go...crushing my cool-weather dreams again.... Hey, we agree! Spring is my least favorite as well.
  9. Hopefully there won't be another 40 day streak for a LOOOOONG time. lol... Once we get to the 3rd week of August is when I start to notice the definite turn towards Fall...much shorter days, cloud types, mosquitoes disappear, apples season JUST beginning. If we can take next week's predicted weather and hang in the Upper 70s to Lower 80s (Lower to Mid 70s would be even better) for the next couple weeks, I will be a happy man. Good point about happiness. It is a choice we each need to make. I know I will NOT complain about the cold in winter because I want winter. We all know I complain when the snow won't come...lol Good reminder to make peace with whatever we get, because some things we have no control over. But we do have control over our attitudes and how we respond.
  10. I think Syracuse finally broke its 40+ consecutive day stretch with highs over 80 degrees. We only made it to 79 degrees today. I don't think the official temp hit 80 at SYR Hancock. It was mostly 76 to 78 here throughout the day. The temp felt nice, but it has been MUGGY. This marks just the beginning of our downward trend towards Fall.
  11. 3 to 4 inches of ice?!? Holy moley! Ice Storms produce some amazing scenery but, oh so dangerous and destructive. It would be one of the few ways to actually close schools now, since power outages equal no online learning.
  12. 2020: Devastating Ice Storms cometh. Most people hate those. Throw in some high winds at the same time so Delta can get his jollies.
  13. I was thinking the same thing about the lake-effect band look. We had some scattered thunderstorms here in the Syracuse area today. Very small, pop-cells here in Northern Onondaga county. I'm glad we got a couple of them. Any water we can get!
  14. You're welcome. I helped break the summer heat records over in West Michigan after I moved there as well. My incredible ability to be a walking furnace wherever I go. Maybe it's a secret X-men power? Name: Global Warmer It reminds me of the Sea Breeze fronts they get down in Florida. I wonder if this is a similar setup? I know the winds were coming from the North earlier today over there.
