SNE "Tropical" Season Discussion 2019

Recommended Posts

Oh, well that's a different discussion about living in a place with low disaster risk (not available to the less fortunate, of course.)  This whole discussion started when I suggested Hazey go check out the storm in coastal Richmond County to fully experience its power. It's not about wishing disasters on people. 

Funny sidebar. Tolland was rated the safest disaster place in the State by the Insurance Risk Management coalition.  Thats funny as shit

Even if you have a genny (mine crapped out on me have to get a new one) it’s still not the same and quite uncomfortable. And I like being comfortable. 

Yes Wolfie, talk about a cluster of high clouds off west coast of Africa...please discuss. 

You know what I mean Berg....we've exhausted this conversation now.   But whatever....

Somewhat related, I've always found ice storms exciting and beautiful (the NNJ event in 1953 probably triggered my interest in both wx and trees), but that excitement is tempered by foreboding since I entered the forestry profession.

OT but have you read “The Big Burn” by Timothy Egan?   Great read and highly educational.  About the catastrophic fire of 1910 out west.   Smoke was detected as far east as Greenland.

The only thing i'm chasing is the wife around the house or to the store for more booze, That's the extent of my chasing, I'm not chasing around after a possible scunado that may produce an EF nothing burger, Or go down Camp Ellis and watch the homes along the beach and adjacent road flood, You could see that on any coastal storm when its high tide.

I like to chase the groomer :sled:

No I don’t, but whatever....

Let’s all watch from the upper deck as Jimmy experiences an outer rain band or two. Such a thrill.

Oh the irony. Probably my old stomping grounds are going to get higher impacts than being only 100mi from the center down here. Fickle are these BEASTS.
My thermometer is reading 98F.

Violently disagree

You actually think he is wishing for his house and property, and neighbors house and property to be gutted by a quick moving CAT 3 or an F-2?

No, though I've read snippets about that year.  Used to have (lost in a move?) a "disasters" book that included the fires at Hinckley (MN) and Peshtigo, and still have "The Week Maine Burned" about the fires of 1947.  (Which burned through a couple entire downtowns in SW Maine along with the "cottages" at Bar Harbor.  Caused 15 fatalities, but thankfully nothing like the above pair, 500+ at Hinckley and more than 1500 at Peshtigo where the flames rode the same winds that spread the Chicago fire.)

I think he wants an F-5 to go right through his backyard while he straps himself to some old plumbing and gets sucked up into the vortex.

I’d take a cat 3 over a tornado, at least with a hurricane there’s time to relax and reflect on the impending destruction of my home days ahead of time. I never have the mental strength to follow the convection threads so it’d be too out of the blue to appreciate.

Hurricane center is saying 150kmh wind speed just to my south. That’s close to cat 2 strength. Damn. So far if track holds, I’ll be on the less windy side. But it will be close. Nail bitter.

Yes indeed. Cape Breton will be on the windy southeast side of Dorian. Mighty blow coming up for them.

Euro and gfs operational both with strong agreement for that system NE of the islands. That is a notorious zone for long-track CV EC threats. ;/
