~Wacky Weather~

2007 Style...
"Hurricane Felix
made landfall in Nicaragua
around 7:45 a.m. Eastern Time
as a Category 5 storm
with top winds at 160 mph (260 km/h),
according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center."


Hurricane Felix. Image courtesy of wunderground.com

"Coming just two weeks after Hurricane Dean hit Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula,
Felix is the second Category 5 storm to hit Central America this year.

It is the first time on record that two Category 5 storms have made landfall in a single hurricane season, according to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Hurricane Dean was the third most intense Atlantic hurricane to make landfall.
"

also...
"Three Category 5 Hurricanes have
made landfall in the United States
since 1900."

(...as in like almost, EVER!)

the article also adds...

"Scientists note that Felix has made landfall at an unusually low altitude for a Category 5 hurricane."

(Read full article from - Mongabay.com - "one of the most popular environmental science sites on the Web".)
~~~~

Strange... (2) Cat 5 hurricanes, in two weeks...
Imagine (2) "New Orleans - Katrina style" disasters,
hitting the US,
two weeks apart.

Is our planet possibly telling us something here?

Once again... Wacky Weather! 2010 style...

Look at this!
Google - Floods 2010

with titles including...


• Heavy rains in Singapore bring 'unusual' floods
• State Police Identify 20 Victims of Arkansas Flash Floods
• Floods take down bridge in Oklahoma
• French storms and floods kill 19
• Flooding to Continue over Southeast China
• Floods force Alcoa to idle Spanish smelter


One report from this list states:
- Freak floods in US predicted by 2009 climate change report -
Jeremy Hance
mongabay.com
June 16, 2010

"— A rash of flash floods has struck the US during this spring: Rhode Island, Tennessee, Arkansas, and most recently Oklahoma have all faced devastating floods that have resulted in the loss of property and in some cases tragic deaths. While flash floods have occurred throughout US history, the number of big floods this year appears abnormal at best, but not unexpected by researchers. Climatologists warned last year that an increase in floods and severe storms is very probable as the world warms."

"A US report commissioned by the Bush Administration in 2007 and released in 2009 warned that the United States would see greater incidences of severe weather and heavier rainfall. The report, which looked at the US regionally, predicted that more precipitation in winter and spring in the Midwest would lead to increased flooding. In addition, the report predicted increases in flooding and sever weather for the Southeast. "

"The report stated that "the amount of rain falling in the heaviest downpours has increased approximately 20 percent on average in the past century, and this trend is very likely to continue, with the largest increases in the wettest places." ..."

"At the time of the report's release, Evan Mills, a Berkley scientist and contributor said: "This is the most thorough and up-to-date review ever assembled of climate-change impacts observed to date as well as those anticipated in the future across the United States."

The science of climate change and increased flooding is straightforward: ... ..." - Freak floods in US predicted by 2009 climate change report - (continued here)

Well EAST COAST... batten down the hatches,,, here we go! 2011

Hurricane Irene is (so far) making a bee line directly for us on the East Coast..

The FUN just keeps on keeping on... (((NOT!))) ...and people are still freaked out and uneasy about the Mag 5.9 Earthquake this week and aftershocks...

Now we get to experience the joy of very real, very severe... winds of 50 to 100+ MPH, 5 to 12 INCHES of rain, flooding, mandatory evacuations of entire counties, possible tornados & power blackouts... and on and on.

I seriously hope that something pushes this "Hurricane Irene" far out to sea at the last minute... but the odds are highly against that happening for this hurricane, which is predicted to track much more west over land, than... almost ever on record, for the NorthEast.

The constant thunderstorms that are unrelated to the coming Hurricane have the ground super soaked and saturated already...
and this "thing" is on the way.

My phone lines were out earlier today, but back after a few hours... and we lost power a few brief times this week with lightning storms.
Keep in mind... the eye of the Hurricane is still south of Florida right now.

Imagine what Friday, Saturday & Sunday are going to be like as it heads up this way for a direct hit along the I-95 corridor... like they are calling for.

Jeez!

It looks like it's gonna make quite a mess. Wish us luck!

Look at these predictions from The Weather Channel.

THIS IS a REPOST (duplicate) from the "Earthquake, Tsunamis and Voclanos" Thread...
Earthquake, Tsunamis and Voclanos (click here)

~~~~~Post Eastcoast Earthquake to Hurricane Irene Stuff~~~~~~~~

Hi Mixey, Jeff, Dream, Toad, SoulSister & Everybody...

Quick note ... just got back to D'Street... exhausted... (what day of the week is it now?)... I'll never forget "Hurricane Irene", the winds, the rain, the blackout, the flooding in the dark... by flashlight...that's for sure.

Everybody in the family is safe and ok, but wow... what a nightmare storm this was to deal with.

PECO assured us that power should be back on there (in Ridley) in early September. Big shout outs and huge thanks to the fire company crew that showed up with 2 trucks to help us bail out the basement the next day in Ridley at my Mother in Laws's house.


We all bunkerd in at my Mother in Law's house (Ridley Township), knowing that this house would require the most active, non-stop defending from the flooding through out the storm.   
More on that whole story after much more coffee.



Back here at good ole' D'Street... things went very well as far as the hurricane was concerned, Marty held down the fort well, and so far, beyond the power outage, very little storm, wind or flooding damage resulting... in town, on the other side of the mountain... in the lower lying areas next to the Schuylkill River by Fayette Street Bridge, I hear it's a totally different story!!!

~~~~~~ 1:31PM Wednesday ~~~~~~
UPDATE: OMG!!!! (I am now reading all of the previous posts in this thread from the past few days... OMG!)

MIXEY!!!! Great talking to YOU today!!! also YES... The video of Conshochocken... Fayette Street Bridge over the Skyukill River over flowing it banks by thousands of feet on each side... big flooding... (((This is exactly where I take my walks every week by the tree line!))) I'm watching this now, going... going Wow!!! Havent been over there since I got back here late last night...
More video of it, here also

...
...and the one that Mixey posted...

JEFF!!!! Glad you are ok through all of this mayhem... !!! Calling You also...

DREAM!!! Glad that You are ok!!!

TOAD!!!   YOU ROCK!!!

They weren't kidding...

Woke up to this...
looking out the kitchen window,
leaves on the trees not yet fallen,
the fall colors covered in white, HEAVY wet snow and ice,
bending the hell out of the branches...

with lots more on the way...


It's still October, right?

Good day for a random mid afternoon Nor'easter nap!

Yes. It's hard to believe that this is not yet "winter"!

We got hammered here at D'Street with the snow and ice... and (4) trees very close to the house crashing down with the weight of the snow and ice on the leaves of the trees... our road was completly closed for a few hours until the bulldozers showed up to help clear some of the road... (see pics below)...

These pics are after hours of work cleaning up today... and 2 of the trees are still on Marty's trailer...

also here's the news report of this strange Nor'Easter in October 2011...

—July 6th, 2012—


Hundreds of thousands without power brace for more blistering heat
By the CNN Wire Staff
updated 1:46 AM EDT, Fri July 6, 2012
CNN Extreme Heat Story (HERE)

—"(CNN) -- Another day of blistering heat, and for hundreds of thousands, no power."

"That's the expectation Friday, (July 6th, 2012) when thermometers once again teeter above the 100-degree mark, from St. Louis to Baltimore and many communities in between."

"More than 549,000 customers had no power Thursday night in 11 states and the District of Columbia, officials said.
The situation is particularly dire in places such as Fayette County, West Virginia, where about two-thirds of its 46,000 residents had no electricity, according to Theresa White, emergency management director.
Hundreds of thousands in West Virginia and other states will mark a week without power Friday after destructive storms barreled east from Indiana toward New Jersey. Others had their lights on, only to have them knocked out by more recent storms also fueled in part by the extreme heat. ... ..."

CNN Extreme Heat Story, continued (HERE)

We had a power blackout yesterday (Thursday) afternoon here at D'Street for a little while... no damage (so far), except that one of the TV's has been coming on and off all by itself... numerous times this evening... at random.
Very spooky to say the least.

Solar flares, perhaps??? Let's look...

Well damn, what do Ya know... Solar Flares today...
could this be wierdly related to the TV going on and off all by itself?
I hope not!

"NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory snapped a daunting new image of a strong M-class solar flare that peaked this morning at 7:44 a.m. EDT. The M6.1 flare triggered a moderate radio blackout that has since subsided, according to officials at NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). ... ..."
