This 'n That

I still wake up in the night and pinch myself. Did my Alma Mata, Appalachian State University really beat Michigan in football in the big house last Saturday?

The win last Saturday will become one of those defining events in my life.

Elsewhere I am searching for any storms that may disrupt my trip to St Croix next week.

SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY HAS INCREASED SLIGHTLY IN ASSOCIATION WITH A NON-TROPICAL AREA OF LOW PRESSURE LOCATED ROUGHLY 300 MILES EAST OF THE NORTHEAST FLORIDA COAST. THIS SYSTEM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BECOME A TROPICAL OR SUBTROPICAL CYCLONE OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS IT MOVES SLOWLY EASTWARD. ELSEWHERE...TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION IS NOT EXPECTED DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS.

Everything looks okay so far. I have so many meteorological links I study every morning that I could fill in at the hurricane center. I promised Gigi that I would stir clear of any hurricanes. They can hit Honduras or Charleston; just stay clear of the USVI.

I am beginning to pack for St. Croix. I am taking as little as I have ever packed. I am assuming if I need to go to a funeral or wedding that island casual will be okay.

The weather here has really turned nice. It is clear and 90 each day with a lack of humidity.

We desperately need rain and lots of it. Our creek has run dry only for the second time since I lived here.

WOW, did you see anything about Felix? It went from an anonymous tropical disturbance on Friday morning to a Category 5 hurricane in about 48 hours. Luckily was way south of us, unusually far south. It scraped by the north shores of the A-B-Cs as a category 2, they never get get hurricanes that far south-west in the Caribbean. The only thing we saw was an increase in swells and a few scattered showers.

That storm was unbelievable.

Aruba’s claim when I used to go there was that a hurricane would NEVER hit there.

I saw the track was way south and the stirring currents were fairly strong and predictable this time.

But it was one fast and powerful storm.
