2022 Hurricane Season
Jun 5th, 2022 at 2:49pm
 
    The NOAA is predicting a very active Atlantic hurricane season this year.  The two main factors are a strong La Nina and something called the Loop Current.  The Loop Current is something that stirs up warm water in the Gulf of Mexico making development of any tropical system that ventures into the Gulf likely.
     This should be interesting.

   The Weather Bureau is still sticking to their prediction that this will be a busy season.  Yawn........

     When I was a kid weather prediction was very dicey.  It has evolved greatly since then of course.  But last Winter they predicted an unprecedented amount of snow for the Northeast.  Nothing like that happened.  There was almost no snow at all.   They also predicted and extremely active hurricane season this year.   They completely missed the boat on that one too.  Long range weather prediction is still not an exact science.
    That said, it only takes one bad hurricane to make a season memorable.  People in Florida will never forget Ian.  It is the fifth strongest hurricane to ever hit the United States.  They're still tallying up the damage and Ian isn't done yet. 
    I should be getting whatever is left of him here in New Jersey this weekend.  We are still having a terrible drought here so as long as Ian doesn't drop any tornadoes on us or flood us out this might be a good thing for New Jersey.

Edit:  I'm getting the remains of Ian now.  It is very underwhelming.  That would seem to be a good thing but we really need rain. 

Edit:  It's October the 2nd and we're still getting the dregs of Ian.  Today it's raining like hell all day, thank God.

Edit:  Though Ian was hell for many people it was a blessing here.  Over five days it dropped seven inches of much needed rain on us.  My lake is close to its normal level for this time of year.

We had some good winds in JAX but not to much rain for Ian. Earl sent us some sick barrels though. Hope Jersey faired okay 👍 👌🏿

    Today we're getting the remains of Hurricane Nicole here in New Jersey.  It's bringing some very needed rain to the area.  My end of the lake is half dry.

I'm sitting on my porch right now having a cigar and a beer, and listening to the rain hitting the roof. Been going all day.

This might mess up slinging plans for this weekend.  Sad
I'll have to see how saturated the yard is tomorrow.
