Tropical Weather

Tropical Storm Bertha is wandering East and annoying fish in the mid Atlantic.

Invest 94L continues to look like it is going to do something, but nothing is happening.

The annoying weather pattern that has provided at least one thunderstorm every day in July in the northern Gulf has finally moved and may provide much needed rain to South Florida.

The Weather Underground Tropical site has problems that are still being worked on, requiring me to use the National Hurricane Center [NHC}.

Whether they understand it or not the NHC desparately needs a graphic artist or at least a programmer willing to expand beyond the 8 colors of the IBM-PC color monitor.

It’s been hellishly muggy here. Muggy + ash = no good breathing scenario.

Tell me about it. I’ve been wheezing for the past couple of weeks because of all the heat, humidity, and ash in the air.

Hmm… smoke and fog are “smog”, so muggy and ash must be “mush”.

We at least are getting the rain to wet down all of the dead wood in the pine forests from the hurricanes.

The good news: There’s still fish to be annoyed in the Mid-Atlantic

Actually, they all cluster under the storms to avoid the factory ships hell-bent on eliminating them.

A good storm also helps to oxygenate the water and disperse the dead zones.
