Southern Caribbean/North Coast of South America [Re: ShanaTX]
      #32912 - Mon Sep 27 2004 04:01 AM

I am getting interested in the system that just came off the coast of South American into the far south Caribbean. So far just looks like a nice blob of convection with maybe a hent of something starting to spin up. I will be patiently awaiting daylight and a quick scatt pass to see if I should be any more interested. Any thoughts on this?

Duh, I just remembered that ordinary Yeast will work in an emergency. I think you have to put it in a pint or so of warm water for a few minutes before you flush it.
Hey Phil, and Coop I hope this isn't to far OT.

Usefull info but others might think otherwise.

Wow! Thank you EVERYONE!!!

It's not that the tank would normally need pumping, it's that I thought maybe pumping it would offer more "room" for somewhere for the waste to go! I understand the floating problem, though. that makes sense. The rest is magic, to me!

I'm headed to the BoyScout catalog and hopefullt a porto potty will be sufficient. Although....Dallas isn't bad!!

What a difference 24 hours can make! Have to keep a sense of humor through it all. Feeling very fortunate and blessed here in Tampa/Oldsmar area, and ready to keep contributing to hurricane relief efforts. Prayers are with all those who suffered damage (most are probably offline). Stay safe!

Domino, that's an interesting area of convection. Even more so was the anticyclonic rotation, it appeared to have. It's a thunderstorm complex/ mesolow rotating around the east side of a ULL. The ULL happens to be on the far end of Jeanne's outflow channel.
Does bear watching. Not a bear watch yet.

Delta isn't booking flights back to MCO till Tuesday AM at the earliest. I guess staying here at least that long is the easy answer... don't have to worry about getting a porta potty if I'm not home to need to use it!! (Like 2 days is gonna fix the flood! HA!)

Kind of off topic, but apparantly Mount St. Helens is showing signs of activity again?

sorry to keep this off topic, but a quick question.......... isn't there a connection between earthquakes/volcanic explosions and tidal waves?

I bet! But here's a secret... when the East Coast gets a hurricane, the big circulation brings cooler air down the middle of Texas. Shhh. Should be partly cloudy and mid 80's tomorrow.

Well.. if the earthquake or volcano is underwater or near water it causes the water to ripple and then can cause Tsunami

Look here

Re: Mount St. Helens ... EEK! Wonder if the locals know yet??? Guess they do St. Helens Activity May Signal Explosion
