Whew … Isaias came and is gone, thank goodness. A quick check, all appears to be in place … check my rain gauge, recorded over 3 inches, at the Curt Brown Airport, nearly 4 inches of rain. … The strongest wind as I took a quick look at NWS stats at the airport was in the mid to upper 30s and at least one gusts in the 51 plus range, that was shortly after midnight. No idea if those numbers are accurate … The weather is recorded every 20 minutes and stats between those recorded are unknown. Thankfully, the storm has departed the local scene, headed north … Good bye.
Ever heard of anything named Isaias prior to the announcement of hurricanes for 2020? Happy to bid it goodbye…
#2 son drives truck for Food Lion. He was in the Norfolk area for a pickup. Tough drive, last heard from him before midnight. All was well…
A quick look around … nothing appears to be out of place … as expected big oak in front yard is missing numerous small twigs, but all are accounted for on the ground.
We needed the rain, didn’t need the wind. All in all, everything is OK … Thankfully.
If we must have a hurricane or near hurricane, guess what we had was not bad in comparison with those in the past…
Forecast for today … A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1 p.m. Some of the storms could produce heavy rainfall. Mostly sunny, with a high near 89, wind gusts as high as low 20s and new rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch.
Hope all is well at your place.
Sometimes the things we can’t change end up changing us.
I live in my own little world but its OK, they know where.
How people treat other people is a direct reflection of how they feel about themselves.
