   Hurricane season doesn't officially end until November 30th and the way the Atlantic is churned up I'd guess we have more adventures on the way.  What's left of Sally will be hitting New Jersey by early evening.  She looks like a soggy mess now.  Hopefully we won't get any tornadoes.

Jim Cantore of The Weather Channel says Teddy will turn north and miss America.  I'm not so sure.

   By the time Sally reached New Jersey she was pretty much spent.  We got maybe a quarter inch of gentle rain overnight.  My sister might not be done yet.  There's some crap kicking up in the western gulf now.  BTW, she lost twelve out of sixteen or her Pine Trees.  Her better half and her will be busy lumberjacking for a while.

   We're now into the Greek Alphabet.  In 2005 we didn't get this far until October.  This has the potential to be the most active Atlantic hurricane season in recorded history.

In 05, I believe they used all 26 letters.  This year, they didn't use but 21.

Still it's an active year, the storm off Texas will probably eventually wander over me about this time next week.  Hopefully, it won't be anything but rain when it gets here.

  After all that activity the Atlantic Basin is strangely quiet.  Is this the calm before the storm?

   After a break for a few weeks the Atlantic Basin is acting up again.

Looks like the depression south and east of Gamma is going to turn north and be in my area around the weekend.

It's supposed to strengthen before then, too.

   My sister near Pensacola isn't even done cleaning up the mess from Sally.  No one picked up the wood they cut yet so if there's a bad hit from Delta those logs could become projectiles.

  From the way the spiral bands are headed it looks like a hit on the Mississippi/Louisiana border.  I hate to say it but this is going to be a really bad one like Katrina.

Well this one seems to be gradually shifting west.  That's actually good, the Gulf is cooler there and there's wind shear that should help weaken the storm. 

Still going to suck to be where it comes ashore, though. 

I'm still looking at rain and possible spin off tornadoes.

Right now they're predicting a Cat 4 when Delta hits America.  Someone is in for a world of shit.  Hopefully you're right and it won't be that bad.

The further west it drifts, the cooler the water and the smaller it will become. 

Last I heard, it's supposed to hit land as a Cat 2. 

Difference between the two is sort of like asking if you want to be beat to death with a tire tool or beat to death with a 2X4. 

Still going to be bad, no matter where it hits.

I'm looking at rain and wind on Friday and Saturday, my big worry is spin off tornadoes.  They tend to be long track if they form this time of year.
