1) Just got back from a walking tour of the neighborhood..we had our second straight night of wild weather yesterday. This time a wet microburst that originated about 3 miles west of here. Significant damage to the fairgounds, ticket booths down, numerous trees, etc. Back in my neighborhood, a 50 foot oak came down and crushed a toyota SUV 2 streets from where I live. My patio furniture ended up in the corner of the yard, blown about 30 feet up against a fence. OF course I missed it all as I was at the store at the time!!
2) Danny- may make it back around as the low swirl is still very tight and does not seem to be unwinding all that fast. Is it just me or is the NHC giving up advisories quicker than ever these days?
3) TD #6 (Erika)- I have been contemplating all day posting out here to say "What's all the hubub?' as this storm has not really impressed me so far. But looking at the latest satellite photos, she really seems to be getting better organized. Not ready to make a call on strength and direction just yet, but IF she develops more rapidly than expected, she will probably be north of the forecast track. Tough things with these storms is the pinball effect with the Greater Antilles and the complete guessing game regarding intensity with these islands regardless of the other environmental conditions.
