    I think I misspoke on another thread and called it Tropical Storm Gamma, but it is still a Tropical Depression at this time. Only 15 more days for the regular Hurricane Season. I hope they dont extend the season due to extreme circumstances.

    Apparently if the storms keep coming, they keep naming 'em. I saw last night that there were a couple of named December storms in the last decade or so. :eek:

    There is a HIGH RISK for severe thunderstorms today from the Great Lakes down to the Gulf Coast. The SPC is calling this a particularly dangerous situation in which some areas could see long lived damaging tornadoes through this evening--F4s and F5s maybe?

    I think Hurricane Gamma jumped up to KY- our weather is out of control today. A huge stormy front is coming through later (tornadoes- how fun for November!), but the winds are already so strong that one trellis has blown down and another is hanging on by a thread. The good news is that most of the leaves have been blown off the trees and into the neighbors yards! :floor:

    So being the weather freako that I am, I will be glued to weather.com the rest of the day. :bang:

    I am a weather freako too! check out my photos in the member's section. I like to use weather.gov over weather.com. Weather.gov displays all of the warnings, watches and advisories for all of the contiguous States. Also, www.spc.noaa.gov is the site to the Storm Prediction Center, which displays all of the current watch data and also mesoscale discussion data--information about where new tornado or severe thunderstorm watches will go out before they are broadcast to the general public.

    Freaky to be in Kentucky today. High of 78* and tomorrow's high if 44* !

    The wind almost knocked me over a few minutes ago when I went to pick up lunch. The radio keeps saying we need to be watching for winds up to 60 mph with the possibility of a tornado outbreak.

    And here I sit in my office seeing client after client discussing Bipolar issues and the neighbor is threatening to sue over the dog situation.

    I wish I were at the beach!! :sosad:

    I think you need to go into meteorology, not law. :D

    Unless there is meteorlogical law!

    Batten down the hatches, Sunny Daze! Storms on the way!

    We have had more bad weather in the past 2 weeks than we had spring and summer combined.

    I'm rounding up the go-to-the-basement supplies:

    Flashlights
    Candles
    Matches
    Radio
    Halloween candy
    Dog/cats/birds
    Shoes (I have this fear of being shoeless after a tornado)
    sodas
    snacks
    Wine
    Ashtray - oh dang! I don't smoke anymore! I definitely miss smoking during tornado warnings!

    It's gonna be a long night- the weather dude just said we will be messing with this for about the next 6 hours. :eek: It's been nice knowing y'all! :lol:

    Re: Tropical Depression # 27 is brewing


    I was actually a meteorolgy major when I first started college--but realized I am not so hot when it comes to Calculus 3 and multivariate calculus. Political science was my other major at the time, so I dropped atmospheric sciences and added history as the other double major along with Poli sci.
