Not many hurricanes there... I imagine... not many up my way either... in fact, I don't think there have EVER been any hurricanes impacting our state...

whereas it is not a hurricane now nor is it expected to become one, the first named Tropical Storm of the Atlantic basin is churning it's way towards the mainland... Florida looks like it will help start off the season with a bang...

Got Ark?

Arlene is coming... Are you ready for her?

I heard on The Weather Channel this afternoon that the state of Florida has relaxed the sales tax on all hurricane related items except for "D" batteries and plywood until Sunday...

IF you live in Florida.... NOW would be a good time to restock your hurricane emergency kit...

listen to the tiger...


Stock UP Now!!!

Looks like my area is going to get a slight "visit" from Arlene. This is from NOAA's website:



Quote:
TROPICAL STORM ARLENE IS CURRENTLY MAKING LANDFALL NEAR THE
FLORIDA/ALABAMA STATE LINE. ARLENE CONTINUES TO SPREAD A TROPICAL
AIRMASS ACROSS THE SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS. THE MAIN AREA OF
PRECIPITATION ASSOCIATED WITH ARLENE BEGINS TO ARRIVE LATER TONIGHT.


I'm in the Southern Appalachians, and it's been cloudy, breezy, and on and off rain showers all day. I live on a hill, so I'm in no danger from possible flooding, but others may not be so lucky.

A heavy rain can put rivers and streams out of their banks pretty quickly here because of the runoff from the mountains.

Cindy is comin your way, Catherine... the time to restock your emergency kit is NOW... you know the drill... water and food for you and your pets, kitty litter, money, gas in the car, first aid kit, batteries, etc... cuz as soon as Cindy passes by our first hurricane of the season, Dennis, will be right behind her... they are now saying that he will be on shore by Monday and will probably be at least a cat 2 storm... maybe even a 3... :roll: :shock: :roll:

Thanks, Stripey...I KNOW...and I'm doing my best to get ready, although hopefully by the time Cindy and her first cousin Dennis get to my area, if at all, the both of them will have lost some of their punch.

We've had almost constant rain for the last several days, and then hot temps, followed by more isolated storms. I need to get my grass mowed before the weekend...too much work here in the good ole summertime!

But I love it. :D I also love a good storm...not a dangerous one, but thunder and lightening, a bit of wind, a rainshower..yum...as summertime as lemonade.

Dennis is now a Cat 2 storm and will more than likely strengthen even more before coming to visit the Gulf Coast later this weekend...

You know... this is the first time in history that there have been four named storms before July 6... and just think... three of them will have impacted the US... looks like this season is just a continuation of last year... and... here's Dennis:

yep... winds at 150 mph right now... cat 5 is at 155 but is unlikely before it hits Cuba where he will probably lose some steam but then... once he emerges into the warm waters of the gulf... watch out...

He may reattain the strength he has now in those eighty degree+ waters... But where's he going? He would swamp N'Awlins if he hit there... and anywhere east of there still has debris... i.e., instant missiles, from last year's storms... especially Ivan...

IF one lives on the Gulf Coast, it would behoove them to pay attention to this... and get prepared... NOW!

I just made a thread dedicated solely to Dennis which you can access by clicking...

Here.

Tropical Depression 5 has become Tropical Storm Emily and is predicted to reach Hurricane status before it reaches the Caribbean this weekend... where to from there?

Get your kits in order NOW and avoid the rush...

Here's an overview of the same system... note storm in upper right corner... that could be Franklin... who looks to be taking the high line...
