Very windy and about to get very wet.  We're under flood warnings as Tropical Storm Fay is expected to cross Florida this evening and go back into the Gulf and by tomorrow evening hit us directly.  Schools have been cancelled for tomorrow.  We saw one report that said once it hits the Gulf that it may strengthen and turn into a category 1 hurricane, but haven't seen any other reports to that affect.  Crossing my fingers and toes that it doesn't although the waterspouts, tornados and flooding that come with tropical storms are pretty bad.

Wish this stupid storm would just fizzle and die already! [:(!]

Yes Ryan I agree that the Tropical Storm Fay fizzles out where
Carolyn lives. Before the end of Friday.

We have had a bit of rain, the garden was needing it as it doesn't rain much in Scotland in the summer. Spare a thought for the idiot that took that picture, he was in about 8" of water.

That reminds me, I need some new door seals.

Looks somewhat like my place at this moment - over 1/2" rain in the rain gauge in the past hour.

It is pretty damp in London as most of the Uk this summer I think. That is if the forecasters are right.

The weather here wasn't as bad as expected.  We were under flash flood warnings today, were supposed to get 5 inches per hour for 3 - 4 hours, but it didn't happen, only moderate wind and rains.  It was nasty last night, had a tree limb ggo through hubbys truck window, but fortunately that was the worst of it.

Thanks Karen.

I'm sure our insurance will cover it, but we have a high deductible, so it will be cheaper to pay for it out of pocket.   LOL......it's his old work truck.  The window probably costs more than the trucks worth.

LOL...yep, I do hate it!

I'm ok.  Trying to recover from having walking pneumonia, and having lots of lovely fibro pain, I'm assuming from the rain, but I'm ok.  Thanks for asking.

Sorry for your pain.. I hope the rain stops for you to get a break.. My leaves on my Catalpa are starting to slightly change color I believe we are in for early winter this year!

Did you know that when Fay was over the everglades she became the first (recorded) tropical storm to gain strength?

Paul why do Tropical Storms have male names and hurricanes have female ones? I have never had to live with that type of storm

The first tropical cyclone was named by an Australian after a politician that he did not like, then during the second world war they were given the names of the wives / girlfriends of the navys meteorological staff. Then in the early 50's they were named phonetically, then by only womens names all the way up to 1979 when they were named after both men and women.

Saying that, different regions have different ways of naming their storms.

I'm not sure what you mean Paul.  I'm sure I'm misunderstanding what you're saying.  How can it be the first recorded tropical storm to gain strength?

Today our weather is nice and sunny.

I'm sick and tired of hurricane season!  Normally, I'm not one to worry or stress over it, and I detest the people that are continually predicting and spouting doom and gloom, but Hurricane Gustav really has me worried.  We are thankfully out it it's projected path, though that changes daily.  It's now a category 3 and according to The Weather Channel, it's predicted to become a category 4 hurricane.

If it hits anywhere closer than Louisianna we will still be severely affected.

Hey, if i made sense more than once a day there would be a cosmic event of catastrophic proportions!

I mean, Fay was the only recorded TS to gain strength over land. Typically, due to the friction and the looss of the storms heat engine (water/ocean) they slow down, but Fay actually gained strength, not much, but gain it did.

One of Fay's squall lines when it passed over us in St. Simons.


Glad we are going to have nothing to do with Gustav.
Good luck Carolyn. Here is to it missing you.

Well today in England we finally had a summers day. The family have been dining with Mr Al Fresco tonight and very good company he was. Freddy has been swimming in our pond, clearing some free water for the dragon and damsel flies of which I am a big fan and have designed my garden around. He was very pleased as one large green dragonfly went right up to his face and looked him right in the eye. Fred said that he was saying thankyou.
