Well, I was going to blame the great minds who think they can control and "own" the weather by 2025, but I heard this morning 64 people were killed in lightning strikes yesterday in India. India and Pakistan had massive dust storm along with that. 64 people in one day being electrocuted? I think God is unleashing some fury.

As for us, the fun begins tonight with torrential downpours, 60 mph winds and possible lightening. Is this the rebuttal to Easter, which is the anniversary of the crucifixion?

And some nutjob went into St. Patricks Cathedral in NYC with gasoline cans and a lighter, he wanted to recreate a Notre Dame type of thing. Some astute security and policemen put a stop to it. He told the cops that he was just trying to take a shortcut thru the church to get to Madison Avenue where his car was parked and that he was out of gas. The cop went with him to his car and found he had a full tank, so he kinda knew what the man was up to.

This week Big Asteroid Exercise by NASA, FEMA and International Partners.

While headlines routinely report on "close shaves" and "near-misses" when near-Earth objects (NEOs) such as asteroids or comets pass relatively close to Earth, the real work of preparing for the possibility of a NEO impact with Earth goes on mostly out of the public eye.

For more than 20 years, NASA and its international partners have been scanning the skies for NEOs, which are asteroids and comets that orbit the Sun and come within 30 million miles (50 million kilometers) of Earth's orbit. International groups, such as NASA's Planetary Defense Coordination Office (PDCO), the European Space Agency's Space Situational Awareness-NEO Segment and the International Asteroid Warning Network (IAWN) have made better communication of the hazards posed by NEOs a top priority.

In the spirit of better communication, next week at the 2019 Planetary Defense Conference, NASA's PDCO and other U.S. agencies and space science institutions, along with international partners, will participate in a "tabletop exercise" that will play out a realistic - but fictional - scenario for an asteroid on an impact trajectory with Earth.

The scenario begins with the fictional premise that on March 26, astronomers "discovered" a NEO they consider potentially hazardous to Earth. After a "few months" of tracking, observers predict that this NEO - dubbed 2019 PDC - poses a 1 in 100 chance of impact with Earth in 2027 (in real life, the international community has decided that a 1 in 100 chance of impact is the threshold for action). Participants in this exercise will discuss potential preparations for asteroid reconnaissance and deflection missions and planning for mitigation of a potential impact's effects.

California is going to get hammered. In about 10 days out or slightly less, one of the mets reported there will be a hurricane in the Eastern Pacific, first one of the season named Alvin. Hawaii needs to be on the lookout.

https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/2019-Eastern-Pacific-Hurricane-Season-Beg ins-First-TD-Possible-Next-Week?cm_ven=hp-slot-2


You can see how much excess rainfall has occurred across the entire country, they have only been able to plant about 25% of the corn crops in the midwest.

Mississippi River flooding has been ongoing for three months or longer in some locations, making it the longest-lasting flood there since the Great Flood of 1927, the worst flood in modern history on the lower Mississippi River.

https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/If-Old-River-Control-Structure-Fails-Cata strophe-Global-Impact


Closure of the Mississippi to shipping would cost the economy $295 million per day, said Gary LaGrange, executive director of the Port of New Orleans, during the great flood of 2011

Failure of the ORCS and the resulting loss of barge shipping that might result could well trigger a global food emergency. The U.S. is one of the world’s largest exporters of grain, and 60% of that grain is transported to market by barges travelling on the Lower Mississippi River

Alvin for the west coast will set it sights on Hawaii.

East Coast - Andrea will NOT be going over Bermuda per well informed sources, it will go east of that. Most the models have it going out to sea, except one model has it hitting Montauk.

Ohio has been getting jacked up. We had a little water in our basement after a 3 hour power outage Tuesday night. Tore all the carpet up and everything will be ok. Hope everyone is doing well.

I keep track of the weather in the Colorado mountains, looks like it is still winter there. Atleast the drought is over, for now. Snowpack was like almost 400% of median for this time of year in some ranges!

How is everyone in CA with that water situation?


gina - 6/5/2019 at 12:37 AM

1st hurricane of the season may be coming soooon. How soon? June 12-13. It would be a Gulf of Mexico storm, eclipse the panhandle then come up north grazing DC/Delmarva as a Cat 1 and either gong by Long Island or I will be screaming Whippin' Post.

It is called 91L investigation. The NHC says it has a 50 % chance of development into a storm in the next few days, but right now it would be down of Campeche, Mexico. This is way to early in the season for this stuff.

Yes it is hot. It is 107 outside my place, a few blocks away it is 103 and half a mile down the road it is 102. I could rant about why don't they turn off the Haarp transmitters in summer so the atmosphere is not fried, but the haarp technology does other things including producing earthquakes in some places that take the pressure off the tectonic plates and fracture zones in other places. There are some that said that the tsunami experienced by Japan and the tsunami that followed was created in order to save the California coastline. Yes it can be that precise. Weather manipulation can be used to prevent things from happening in one place while causing something else to happen in another.

There are other reports that the fracking and it's wastewater may cause earthquakes for decades to come even after fracking in that area is stopped.

https://www.nationofchange.org/2019/07/18/fracking-wastewater-may-trigger-e arthquakes-for-decades-even-after-operations-cease/

In the Quran, there is guidance which said that "stabilizers were put in the earth", that means oil to lubricate the plates and inner workings of our planet and it's axis rotation; but the great minds decided to ignore this and suck the oil out of the land, oceans and profiteer out of it. They join axis's of nations to regulate the price of fuel and to make big profits. if people die from earthquakes because of their efforts, they do not care. They are slaves to the pleasures of this world, and they have to do things like this in order to maintain their status quo, so they have enough money to remain in power.

God gave his warnings to people with the Bible, he gave further warnings to people with the Quran. We could have learned from the Indians how to care for the land and the water. We could have learned from the Amish or other peoples who respect the land, are able to farm and have enough food to feed the people. But then you have people like Henry Kissinger who said "he who controls the food controls the people" and the bright idea of GMO foods was introduced. From the beginning the seeds of evil were sown in the world, and ultimately man will reap the harvest of his sinister, evil ways.


gina - 8/24/2019 at 08:05 PM

Yes the weather people will be talking about stuff in the Atlantic. One of our favorite mets tells us it is not a problem (TD 5) which will go across Florida, come out in the ocean and head up along the coastline and be near Wilmington, NC. He says it will go out to sea based on the high coming down from Canada and a cold front coming from the west. Thank you Bid Daddy! We are not ready for a hurricane right now.


Here's what the others have been saying about other disturbances out there.

Wednesday 8-28-19. Models Now say DAYTONA BEACH as a Cat 3 yes THREE 115 mile per hour winds. DEREK get outta JAX. Everybody else especially those in Carolina and north of there should be checking in on Bernie Rayno's twitter page because there is a trough-troff that can pick the hurricane up and bring it to NC because of an upper level high effecting the steering flow of winds in the atmosphere. He's at accurayno on twitter. Check out his most recent videos.

gina - 8/29/2019 at 02:03 AM

The mil. revised their map, now rather than Daytona/Jax as impact point for Dorian they have Kissimmee/ Orlando so does the HWRF-model. It gets worse, that model thinks it will be a high Cat 4. Read the article on Jeff's site. Https://www.wunderground.com It hit St. THOMAS as a cat 1 75 mph winds gusts to 97. It has an eyewall 20 -40 miles wide. They think it will undergo an eyewall replacement cycle Fri. That means the storm stretches and gets bigger and stronger because the convection bands inside the storm tighten up. It's going to be bad. If I was anywhere with a Cat. 3 or 4 coming, I'd get out. Go anyplace.


gina - 8/29/2019 at 02:29 AM

There are two scenarios for landfall. The American GFS model thinks Dorian will NOT go to Florida but will go to Charleston SC. The European model thinks it will go to central Florida and go across Florida. So I guess it's like Clint Eastwood said in Dirty Harry, "do you feel lucky?". As with the other sites you should be checking at a time like this. Henry's Weathermadness site is one of them Https://www.weathermadness.com.

Levi Cowan another of everyone fans and meteorologists alike favorite go to for info. Mets did a video on Dorian. Check his twitter. Https://twitter.com/tropicaltidbits


gina - 8/29/2019 at 11:56 AM

The latest thinking on the storm says Cat 4-125 miles per hour at landfall. Exact location still has some variance many of the models yesterday suggested Cocoa Beach. Today it looks like Melbourne. It is still early, after Friday they will have it more hammered down. The storm should come onshore Monday night and the astronomical high tides will make the storm surge worse. There is still time to leave and get to safety but bear on mind usually two days before impact some of the outer bands are already approaching due to the wind-field. If you are leaving you cannot wait till Sunday. Friday night or Saturday morning would be okay to go. After it gets thru with Florida it goes in the Gulf and could make a second landfall along the AL, Miss, LA coastlines. Head north Georgia will be fine.

gina - 9/1/2019 at 09:12 PM

9-1-19 Firstly, nobody is out of the woods on this one. While it is good news it probably will not hit Fort Pierce, Florida, which has a nuclear reactor. The Florida coastline will experience significant flooding due to the storm surge, King Tides, and prolonged rain and wind with the storm surge. I mentioned the effects they experienced in Abaco today. With the King Tides, the tides are ALREADY 8 feet higher than normal. These are videos from some of the meteorologists we can trust, because they KNOW, experience and instinctually what can be expected.

These are two from Henry today.

Yep folks, if the US is spared the full wrath of Dorian, there are two more waves after that. Time to really start thinking and getting stuff together. For me the full realization that I do not want to live in a hurricane zone has set in. I don't want to deal with hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes up close and personal. I am tired of being terrorized. Someone pointed out to me today, we have no control over these things, all we can do is react to it if we are called to deal with it.


gina - 9/1/2019 at 11:20 PM

There is an anticipated storm surge map. Now if the hurricane decides to make landfall anywhere along the coastline these numbers will change.

Ed Piotrowski has videos from outside the Space station of the storm.

His ready, set, go plan seems like people would already know this, but maybe not.

READY 5-7 days ahead - put a kit together or stuff you will take with you or that you need if you stay where you are.

SET 3-5 days ahead - if in the cone, plan, prepare property and get ready to leave.

GO 1-3 days ahead - evacuate if ordered to or if you are along the coastline, if inland shelter.


If you home is not secure enough to withstand the wind, rain that may come to you area. LEAVE. Look at the video of the woman in Abaco. There is nothing she can do.

You got a lot of people on this storm, lots of places to go for info. Utilize it. I saw reports that suggest when Dorian gets close to Florida it will be near Port Canaveral. You all know that is where they launch space shuttles from. You may also know that Trump wants to weaponize space, sending nukes up there to use at places down here if he thinks we are in a Space War. Well, God has to draw the line somewhere, I really don't think he wants us putting more stuff up there to launch on other nations. If Port Canaveral gets hit, I think we can assume God has spoken.

Melissa Tomlin has a great idea, Norwegian, Carnival and Royal Carribean cruise lines who benefit from Bahamas tourism should help bring supplies and give back to the islands that have given to them. The Royal British Navy is coming but the devastation is surreal.

For locals in the Bahamas who need rescue they can text to:

3595142

Officials have set that up for them.

Update: Royal Carribean is sending 1M [million] dollars to help with relief efforts.
Carnival Cruise Line will also send relief money.

If you are not following Miami Herald you should be.

Good night Whippin' Post, and yes there was a tornado on Long Island today not near me though. Don't think it did much, we get these horrible what I call weather terror storms, torrential downpours, cloud to ground lightning, winds more than 50 mph. We don't have normal weather anymore.

Storm surge for Carolinas can be 7 feet. Hurricane force winds about 60 miles inland, tropical storm force winds 175 miles in. The wind-field is expanding due to the cold front. They say Long Island should be okay. So should Little Rhody. Connecticut had a tornado tonight. I have to start snoopin' on what's going on in the troposphere. There might be things going on that we don't know.

200,000 people are already without power. There is significant flooding in South Carolina, but what is worse is tht there are multiple tornadoes from within the storm that will be heading to North Carolina as it gets there. These are NOT water spout tornadoes, these are tornadoes from within the hurricane in the outer bands. At least 5 of them.

The eye is at least 50 or 60 miles wide and the windfield is 175 miles, will be more as it makes it's way up the coastline.

South and North Carolina you are looking at 6-12 inches of rain.
Sotheast Virginia 3-8 inches of rain, Norfolk and Virginia Beach can expect Hurricane Force wind GUSTS, your tropical storm winds are 39-72 mph, hurricane is above that. The storm is a Cat 2 105 mph winds with 125 gusts.

Northeast can expect 2-4 inches of rain.

In the Bahamas there are victories and tragedies still occurring.

https://twitter.com/bahamaspress

The government got 200 body bags, they are telling people not to talk about all the dead people, but there are dead people floating in waters, there are sharks in the water also.

Good news:

20,000 meals have been loaded onto an “explorer vessel” that is being sent from Florida here to the Bahamas at the request of @chefjoseandres & his @wckitchen team. Meals will be prepared on the boat as the food is being brought here.

They delivered 2,000 sandwiches today, and planned 10,000 more tomorrow. They are even going to make the food on the boat while it is on it's 8 hr. trek to the Bahamas.

"Reporting in after a long day on Abaco and visiting Green Turtle Cay, where all 550 people survived! We @WCKitchen brought hot meals and heard incredible stories....They need a few things, but otherwise are okay!! #ChefsForBahamas"

AND 6 hrs. ago they already started delivering meals to Columbia County, North Carolina.

These guys are organnized.

While the storm has passed the Carolinas and the east coast, there may be people trapped in the Outer Banks of NC that need help. Flooding in South Carolina happened in just two hours.

007 "Shaken not stirred"

Sean Connery rode out Hurricane Dorian in his Bahamas home.

https://nypost.com/2019/09/06/sean-connery-says-he-was-lucky-to-survive-dor ian-in-bahamas/

In an interview from his home there, he told the Scottish Daily Mail that he and his wife, artist Micheline Roquebrune Connery, were “both fine” and thanked people “for their concern.”

“We were lucky compared to many others,” said Connery, whose home is in the gated community of Lyford Cay on New Providence Island, which is about 95 miles from Great Abaco, which saw the greatest destruction. “The damage here was not great.”

He continued, “We had been prepared for the storm, everything was ready in advance — we weren’t taking any chances and knew what to do. It comes with living here, I suppose.”

https://www.jamesbondlifestyle.com/articles/sean-connerys-bond-lifestyle

He has a mansion in a gated community of Lyford Cay in New Providence Island, 95 miles from Great Abaco.

Since the Bond days he is now involved in activisim of a sort.

He is happily married but did he ever live the life like James Bond? Carly Simon reportedly said a few things.

https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/carly-simon-reveals-sean-connery-aske d-for-menage-a-trois-with-her-sister

In her new memoir, “Boys in the Trees,” Simon claims that in 1965, when she was 20, she and her 22-year-old sister, Lucy, met Connery aboard the SS United States traveling from England to New York. The sisters became friends with the then-35-year-old actor, and after having drinks with him one night, met him in his cabin.

There, he proposed having the ménage-à-trois — or as one of Carly’s friends called it, a “Simon sisters sandwich,” the book says. They turned him down.

Lucy, however, spent the following night with Connery, who was married to actress Diane Cilento at the time, and didn’t come back until 5:15 a.m. the next day, Carly Simon writes.

Okay now you've had your morning Latte and entertainment, now it's time to get back to the seriousness of the situation in the Bahamas. The only people who will definitely survive are the ones getting on private charter boats. People are waiting in long lines to get on boats in Freeport to go to Nassau. Marco Rubio and a Florida delegation visited Abaco and says only the Department of Defense can get in the heavy logistical support needed to re-establish some sort of survival for these people. Rand Hospital has 10 beds that are filled, and the rest of the rooms are flooded out; even the hospital cannot provide normal services for injured people. You need some field hospitals, but the most basic thing is WATER. People have no food or water, in 3 days with no water, a person goes into kidney failure and dies. This cannot wait.

Can someone send in desalinization equipment to help provide water. Can someone send in construction equipment to move the debris, so that tents can be set up? Can you provide generators and gas to help power up food tents? Sleeping bags, tarps, cots, blankets, pillows basic things, toothpaste, toilet paper, dumpsters for refuse removal? FOOD: BOOST liquid nutrition 30 grams protein supplements can help. What about storage sheds that could be set up quickly like PODS to help store materials? Pre-fabricated structures that could be erected quickly?

Why can't the cruise lines show some concern and send some boats to shelter people? Can ferries be sent to help get people to safe lands?

You have 70,000 people who have no food, water or shelter. It really cannot wait, and I HATE to say this but guess what, the European weather model has another wave forming in TWO WEEKS around the 19th or 20th, the response to Dorian will take time to get things back to normal, unfortunately those people are under the gun for survival and if there is another hurricane in 2 1/2 weeks, they will probably die if it goes thru those islands again.

#HopeTown a community that easily handled Hurricane Irene in 2011 was no match for Cat 5 #HurricaneDorain - on the egress. They need supplies. Let the floatplanes land for starters.


Other remarks: There has been a lot of money put out to help the victims, there is also some belief that there is corruption with Bahamian officials so the money/food is not getting to the people. You really need boots on the ground for this sort of thing. One person said they were just collecting the bodies, we have seen them being loaded on pick up trucks, and it is believed the govt. may just be burning the bodies, like garbage.

Trump needs to authorize waiving the visa requirement for the victims so that some of them can be transported here. Those cruise ships should sail some boats in there use portable ramps so docks can be set up to help them get on board. Feed them, house them, relocate them for now. WHY CAN'T THIS HAPPEN? These people have nothing.

FREEEPORT, BAHAMAS 9-7-19

Phillip Smith, the executive director of the Bahamas Feeding Network, fronted efforts to deliver 20,000 meals to those most in need in Freeport. The aid had been provided by the cruise line giant Royal Caribbean earlier in the day. At present, he said, no aid had been provided directly by the government of the Bahamas, although assistance was being given by its National Emergency Management Agency (Nema).


https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7434057/Aid-effort-picks-momentum- Bahamians-seek-way-out.html

The Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line is evacuating some 1,400 hurricane survivors, ferrying them from Freeport to West Palm Beach, Florida.

FINALLY SOMEONE GETS IT, the islands are not livable and people have to be gotten off them.

The next storm that we will have to keep a look out for is # 3 from the wunderground article. This may become something around September 23. The European model [and this is quite far out at this time] thinks it would be an Atlantic based storm.

https://weather.com/storms/hurricane/news/2019-09-09-watching-atlantic-trop ics-hurricane-season-september?cm_ven=wu_videos?cm_ven=hp-slot-1


We can't get all crazy about this, but you need to be aware of it. And even though some weather modification takes place with cloud seeding etc., remember that it is God who has the final say so, so let's say some mad scientists want to try to direct it one way of the other of have it hit some place to save some where else, utlimately God either allows it or not. When he allows disaster it is because people will be drawn back to him, and it is also an opportunity for others to help those who are sufferring from the disaster. He may not cause it, but he allows or does not allow it. That is the point and that is why.

While Dorian is away from our shores, it is still hurricane season which for us is now September thru November since the sub Saharan dust layer doesn't significantly decline till around now.

Trump has been probed for his map with Alabama in the cone of uncertainty while the people live with the stench of rotting bodies in the Bahamas. Cholera has been reported there as well.

There is another wave coming off Africa around September 23, I hope everyone gets over sharpie-gate by then. The models change all the time, even in the same day. With the next tropical storm/depression/hurricane all I would say is everyone in the oval office or anyone with access to it, should just step away from the sharpie. Let the naval research folks do their estimates and the nhc issue the warnings to people. As the changes happen, the President could update his twitter page since a lot of people go there.
