I'm tired of lurking...Re: the predicted paths and jogs. I was one of the lucky ones to be in Charley's path when he wobbled and jogged. While TWC and NHC said, "Tampa", our local guys said, "grab ahold!" Our front door storm shutter was sucked off the front of the house and my husband had to literally hold onto the door for about 45 minutes. It was pure hell. We were just a mile south and west from the eye as it went across Pine Island. Not fun!

Ivan right on its projectd path. Ivan digested the dry air pretty well and is re grouping. Unusually dry air over the Florida peninsula however around Tampa, resulting in evaporation of precip. This was not expected.




Please tell me what that means....... and if there will be any repercussions because of it.
Thanks!

Tired of Lurking Part 2 [Re: eulogia]
      #27140 - Tue Sep 14 2004 02:27 PM

Re: Eulogia - Also tired of lurking. I'm in Maitland, FL and we had the eye of Charley go right up I-4, and although it was not as difficult as it was for those on the coast, we still had lots of damage in our old, oaklined neighborhood. Silver lining was that everyone, even those who never come out, was out with chainsaws in the early dawn, helping each other clear a path out of the area, which was blocked in many places by large trees. Without power for 5 days, then for 4 more with Frances, when the pool overflowed. We are very blessed that we sustained no damage beyond a dent on the roof of my car from a falling branch, and having to throw food out. Lines for generators and other supplies were impossible after a point. It took a long time to recover mentally from it all. As has been posted and written before - a true "tropical depression."

To those in the cone - we are with you in spirit. Please take very good care.

Very hopeful that Jeanne will just sit and spin with the fishes, I realize from watching this site for the last few weeks that it is way too early to tell but so far it looks like Jeanne will stay in the Atlantic and harm no one.

You're comparing this tropical storm to the 1938 hurricane, wow. I do think it will make a landfall in the mid-atlantic states but not at that intensity. Isn't it weird that JB almost always aims things at the mid-atlantic area, weather (LOL) it be snow or rain.

, that was funny!!

1st post here from Port Richey FL. Great site, been lurking for days.

Does anyone know off-hand how many degrees Charley turned right before slamming into Punta Gorda? I know the consensus says that Ivan (or any hurricane for that matter) can't make that sharp of a turn, but just wondering.

*Edited for clarification

Well I must say I never thought Ivan would make it as far west as he has. And my prayers go out to anyone near him. He has grown to be quite a large storm, and we can only hope that he loses some strength before landfall.

Jeanne has gotten her act together a little bit more together this afternoon. The very first forecast was shifted a bit west, but that was because initially they had a hard time pinpointing her exact location. Some models(UK/Can/etc) have the ridge to her north maintaining current intensity or even building and they show a more westward movement. The GFS and GFDL depict a weakening of the ridge, allowing her to turn more northward. It will probably be another wait and see event, at least for the next few days. Right now everyone should keep an eye on Ivan, and give some prayers for everyone affected.

Keith234,

I think you're a tad confused, either that or I don't understand what you are saying.

I'm saying JB is comparing the possible storm surge in mobile bay (as it is ^ shaped) to the 38 cane where Providence sits at the end of the Providence river, which in turn feeds the Naragansett Bay... which is also ^ shaped.

And I'm talking about Ivan, not Jeanne...that's a whole nother story we'll need to deal with soon I've had it already.

So, can Ivan still make that turn towards the east? Is Apalachicola etc out of the woods yet?

One foot in the door, the other poised for flight...

We have friends in PCB who have already bugged out. They've gone to...where else: Disney World! If any of you all live in hurricane prone areas, the best investment you will ever make in your life, aside from some good storm shutters, is a generator. If you are evacuating, try to buy one wherever you are evacuating to and bring it back with you.

I'm just coming in from outside, I feel like a wet rag it's so frigging humid. Definitely tropical moisture...believe it or not, there's a difference between "regular" Florida moisture and "tropical Florida" moisture. The air feels denser, smells different. That sounds wacky, but it's true. Living here for 13 years now, I can tell the difference.
The rain should start coming in later tonight; I think we'll see more t-storms and gusty winds and lots of rain. I'm hoping this will happen around 6pm so I don't have to sweat at football practice.
Also...an interesting fact that I learned during Charley and Frances...if you are in a high-rise on the beach or anywhere with this storm, the winds you experience will be higher than those at the surface.
I don't want to hear the name JEANNE until absolutely necessary.
