Here in the Great Lakes area, we've had more than our share of wicked weather this year....and more rain than I care to remember.....we should get about 3 inches per month....and we got about 4.5 per month since May....most of it in huge downpours.

So, imagine my trepidation. when I saw this, and see people comparing it to last November's awful wind storm!!!!!
www.spc.noaa.gov...


SUGGESTS INCREASING POTENTIAL FOR A REGIONAL SEVERE WEATHER EVENT...WHICH COULD INCLUDE SUPERCELLS
AND THE EVOLUTION OF AN ORGANIZED CONVECTIVE SYSTEM...ACCOMPANIED BY THE RISK FOR DAMAGING WIND GUSTS AND A FEW TORNADOES. GIVEN THE CONVECTIVE SIGNAL EVIDENT IN THE MODEL OUTPUT...CONFIDENCE IS SUFFICIENT TO DELINEATE A SEVERE RISK AREA ACROSS SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE GREAT LAKES REGION AND OHIO VALLEY FOR WEDNESDAY.


Here's a blog about it from Western Michigan

So, what say you????
Doom porn? Storms a-comin'? I ain't worried?

Hang in there. I'm curious what this winter has in store for a lot of the country, although I'm hoping that some predictions, like a particularly wet Fall for Texas, prove to be correct...I know my Dad in Texas would be appreciative.
Good luck! Keep yer' stick dry!

It probably won't effect us much here up in the U.P. I don't mind the lack of excitement.

The lower part of Michigan sure is getting clobbered this year.

We should ask the 'expert'.
Anybody hear from Al Gore lately?

The last storm was crazy, last i heard 400,000 customers where without power. The clouds seen over Kalamazoo the other day where incredible.

Not to lessen the impact that the weather may bring (I hope everyone remains safe) but I have to imagine what people did 100 years ago when this kind of weather occurred.

There'd be no advanced warning, poorer housing, fewer shelters.

Did they think of it as doom, or did they just shrug their shoulders, call it weather, and carry on?

I can assure you that in one form or another there have been those on the street holding a sign saying "the end is near" for centuries.

Although they probably did call it just weather but 100 years ago it also wasn't uncommon for entire towns to be wiped out because of it. Dam failures, fires, floods, coal fires, and water contamination were not uncommon. Actually when looking it up explosions were listed fairly often but weather related I would say excess rains or cold were to blame for many towns demise.

I just think that with our reliance to electricity, warmth, shelter, we've grown more vulnerable to extremes in weather than we would have in the past.

Looks like I'm right in the middle of it. Bring it on! lol

While we're on the subject of doom porn, I predict this winter will give us the worst blizzard we've seen, besting the one in 1978.

The storm is brewing as we speak...

Very true.

I have three different ways to heat my home. Two rely on electricity though. I also have a Kerosun heater and kerosine if I need it. But most people do not have that. I have three ways to cook food, only one takes electricity. My biggest downfall is the water, cities have more reliable water during power outages. We have about 12 gallons of drinking water and about forty gallons of toilet water on hand. We are good for a week.

It's just wild, I guess. Technology, electricity, access to city water/sewer/power has actually made us more frail in the face of weather that (100 years ago) people would have taken in stride.

Well if you actually look at what happened 100 years ago there were multiples more people dieing from the elements back then as well. So I guess I don't really understand by what you mean by "taking in stride".

Apologies. What I meant to convey was that inclement weather didn't cause the disruptions that we face.

Better?

Yup

You had me a bit confused before.

Hang in there DTOM but it could be worse with the rain fall the western highlands of Scotland is one of the wettest places in Europe with annual rainfall up to 4,577 mm (180.2 in) and the snow
Parts of the Highlands have an average of 46 to 105 snow days per year


no wonder we drink

That's crazy, what date did I you see those, we had clouds exactly like that over Duluth MN on the fourth! I wonder if we will break the record for colder than mars like we did last year?
