Another Day In Paradise

As of 1:00PM CDT

… Heat advisory remains in effect until 7 PM CDT Wednesday…

The combination of high humidity and hot temperatures will produce
heat index values between 108 and 113 degrees across most of inland
southeast Mississippi… southwest Alabama and the west Florida
Panhandle this afternoon and from late morning to late afternoon on

Here we get the heat and the humidity so that sweating is a total waste of time and t-shirts.

I’ll see you your 100+ heat index, and raise you moderate particulates in the air. I, for one, am staying indoors until sometime this evening.

One of the best feature of the new car is a filter for the cabin air. You can’t live under a flight path and not get the soot from the jet fuel.

That’s about what we’ve got up here. Plus the two to five+ inches of rain that fell last night across my home county, with more expected tonight and Thursday.

We have a threat of thunderstorms every day right along the coast which is what is driving the humidity. If you get a thunderstorm, the temperature drops 15° and the humidity eases off.

There are a lot of things I would like to do, but that will not get done until this passes.

Thought you might like to see the planes helping fight our “another week of fire in Paradise Canyon”

nothing like a little perspective. i’ll take the heat and humidity over wildfires any day.

[fascinating video, though]

Thanks, Jill. The last aircraft was a B-26, which was used from World War II through Vietnam for low level missions.

It looked like the pilot was having a little “fun” dealing with the air turbulance when doing his drop.

The ash is falling like snow. There’s white stuff everywhere…sometimes an inch think. The lungs are not having fun of late.

We’re just hoping the fire doesn’t destroy a major link to our power grid and sweep on down the mountain toward the city. It’s getting real close. We’re holding our breath and crossing our fingers.

I hate to say it, but this is going to be the pattern for a while. Gas masks and water-wings could become the new fashion accessories.

Stay safe and keep the ocean in sight.
