>>> Phil, can we post our own Bonus Point Questions? If not, how can I recommend one to you?

Blue light special...for tonight only...two rules...they can't suck and they must be DIRECTLY related to something you mention in your post; they should be hard but not impossible and I reserve the right to axe you if it doesn't meet the two above criteria...bonus away...

Still waiting for State Farm to inspect my roof from Charley damage. First appt. was cancelled due to Frances, second cancelled due to Ivan. Third appt. is scheduled for Saturday. Suppose they'll make it this time? :?:




Third time's the charm, they say. I hope you have better luck this weekend.

From Accuweather... [Re: COgal]
      #30587 - Thu Sep 23 2004 09:37 PM

Ivan to Re-enter Gulf of Mexico Monday



After impacting eastern Texas this weekend, Ivan is expected to move back into the western Gulf of Mexico Monday. Steering winds from the north will push Ivan southward into the Gulf of Mexico. It is too early to tell whether or not Ivan will restrenghten once it reaches the Gulf of Mexico Monday.



My "final answer" is that this WILL NOT happen. I'm now on the line of the front picking Ivan up and taking him NE. For all of us, let's hope that Accuweather is wrong. It's not like it would be the first time.

We got our roof tar-papered before Frances and haven't seen them since . Meanwhile, more leaks have sprung. Who knows how long this is going to take..
Can we expect to at least have more rain this weekend?

Charley & Frances & Jeanne, Oh My! [Re: LI Phil]
      #30589 - Thu Sep 23 2004 09:40 PM

I feel like a deer caught in the cross hairs. Charley brushes by us to the west. Then Frances brushes by us to the east. Now who knows what Jeanne will do? Maybe go right over our roof! I'm going crazy! Hope to have some of my sanity left by November 30.

Here's my Bonus Point Contribution:

Well the wind is blowin harder now
Fifty knots or there abouts
There's white caps on the ocean
And I'm watchin' for water spouts
It's time to close the shutters
It's time to go inside

Normally not one to go OT; but the feature that pops up the little NHC chart when your mouse rolls over the name of the storm in a message is major cool!!! WTG Mike!!!!

ILocal forecast for Ft. Myers says 50% chance of rain on Saturday, 40% on Sunday. Earlier today it said 60%. Tomorrow it could say 80% or 20%. Short answer: nobody knows. But I would plan for it. Better to be prepared and not have it happen, then do nothing and be caught off guard.

Skeetobite, your maps are the best!!! However, if you plot the 60 hour point at 26.7 and 79.8 you will see the landfall point is near WPB/Jupiter not near Ft. Pierce. I guess your program can only plot the 48 and 72 hour plots? The line would then be curved and not straight from the Bahamas to Ft. Pierce. I am not trying to be picky and know the storm is not a point, but what I am trying to say is that landfall currently by the NHC track is really quite a bit south as what the 48 and 72 hour straight line plots show. I just want to make sure people south in the WPB area know this.




You are correct. Limitations of the software.

The issue is the straight lines from coordinate to coordinate. One can imagine that the line in this image would "droop" southward since these storms do not move point to point and turn abruptly. Hopefully the image below will help.

Bonus Point:

She's dressed too warm
For this latitude
We go out to lunch
With some Jamaican dude
Then the sunshower breaks
We come in out of the rain
But in her Florida room
There's a hurricane

And it's named Jeanne..

Not sure if it's "the" turn or just a short term wobble... but Jeanne seems to have turned to the left finally.

I'm beginning to find it hard to believe that Jeanne is going to head pretty much straight West for the next 48 hours... While the ridge is strong, it seems that is asking a lot.

I'm sure I'm wrong, but that seems like a long time to hold a course.

I'm fully prepared. It can come right for me and I'll be ok.

" So, what did you do this weekend?" "Oh, just rode out another hurricane."




yea I rode out that hurricane too and kept getting bitten up by mosiqutos trying to fill the generator!! LOL
