One of our meteorologists is already calling this storm Ivan the Terrible and says there is every indication she will be a major storm. Here they aren't even guessing on projected path saying the projections are all over the map. Sigh...
That's because none of the various storm computer "models" agree. There seem to be many different universities and gov't models using a variety of collected data. Aren't you glad you have already anchored the travel trailer?
I just had an email from Dea calling it Ivan the Terrible, too, and she's in MD!
Yes the trailer will hopefully be safe. We still have lots to do. I'm always surprised by the number of potted plants we have but most are in. Still have a few trips around the property...there's always just one more thing to do! LOL It will be nice to finally be able to sit down and relax??? Ha!
A couple of years ago the northern edge of SA was hit hard by hurricanes. I managed the travel agency that held the Dept of Interior contract and we sent a lot of geology expert types down to assist. Created massive floodiing, mudslides, a lot of loss of life. I'm thinking it was Columbia.
weeds often when bad storms happen down there it pushes the gulf stream up and *even* we often get much warmer weather than had been predicted...we've been having the winter gulf stream all this summer (Alaskan Cold Front)...maybe your storms will allow our crops to come off!
Nope. We got this one from Oregon via Idaho - major hot winds sucked up in front of it kept us at 85 the night before and then dropped like crazy with a delightful storm that hung here even after the rest of the front had moved on.
Feel blessed by any drop that falls. We haven't had a decent monsoon season in nearly ten years. This was a rare radar pic* as it is way more normal to have that same circle be the only clear spot in a storm. ~Blooms ed to add we got .32 inch rain here in the valley
*The storm circle on the Utah/Colorado border - is my reference. The streak from Arizona thru NMex and NE is the monsoon track at the moment.
