Its August 22, 8pm i guess the latest is that we have rip currents, no swimming or surfing allowed, the seas are rough, but i dont see any tree movement, not anything out of the ordinary at all.

One big tip off that its NOT coming is that Obama IS.


Those of you with people here, there is not much to worry about, as much as i'd like a little drama, a little excitement, i dont think its going to happen.

This one of Sagamore Bridge seems to be pointing into someone's room!

I am kinda getting the impression that they don't know what it is going to do.

But it dropped down to a cat 1. Bermuda got through it just fine, though Bermuda is a lot more prepared for these sort of things.


People focus on the size and category of a storm. As someone who lives in the occassional storm area, that isn't the defining thing of the damage a storm can do.

It really depends on where it hits, how it hits, and how the area feeds into it.

We have had hurricanes that have come through that seemed like stormy, rainy days without too much hassle. But then a tropical storm causes wideflood spreading and power to be out for a month.

I think the defining factor is the size and how slowly it moves. The TS caused so much havoc becuase it was big, and SLOW, allowing it time to dump like 10 inches of rain over 10 days.

A hurricane may be stronger, but if it passes through in 12 hours, it doesn't do as much damage.

I disagree to a slight extent, DG. I wouldn't want to write off Bill just yet. I have experienced storms, (and not experienced storms) of the past 15 years that vastly deviated from their cone of probability. As much as some forecasters claim to not lean on the computer models, when [the models] come into agreement on a forecast track, the NHC in particular, tend to go with that general track.

We hope it's the same noncrisis for you that it was for Bermuda (although they're not without damage), but I think that you were and are right to have made the thread and are monitoring your weather. Especially when its coming down the home streatch in the quiet of night...... people tend to hope without preparing and watching.

Storms are a fickle thing. You got some excellent forecasting from some of our ATS members that, unlike me, are professionals in the wx biz.

Keep your eyes open m'friend. Maybe Bill will fizzle, both for you and Nova Scotia.


eyes up

Hello my friend. I'm just saying that so far i dont see any signs...

I remember a story my father told me, the place was Havana, Cuba, the year i believe was 1933, and a fierce cyclone was headed towards the island but all the news dismissed it and gave it up for just brushing the island and going somewhere else.
My father was just a little boy, and he said the hurricane suddenly turned inland and was one of the most davastating hurricanes ever in the Caribbean.
He used to cry when he would tell me the story... he said his brick building they lived in was swaying back and forth, and he always had post traumatic stress after that.


So one never knows.

I know
I always go overboard in this arena. I just want everyone to be prepared.

I believe the storm was in 1932, DG, and it killed 120+ people here in the Cayman Islands and went on to kill another 3200 in Cuba. It hit on November 8, a date that was considered past the hurricane season at that time. It was a bad one, and is still taked about in both countries. There are a fair amount of people like your papa who still carry the scars of that storm. It changed a lot of lives.

November 8, last year, the anniversary of the Storm of '32, I was up all night, as I usually am in storm times, on the internet, watching Paloma. It took a sharp turn and intensified. I started calling people, and I think most people were a tad tweaked off to be awakened at 2:30 a.m. It really kicked our butts, although thankfully, nobody was killed.

Maybe we really can't do anything about the storms after we've boarded/shuttered up and are tucked in. Myself, I always want to be awake and have at least pants and shoes on
you just never know.

Be safe m'friend. Holler if you need anything.

Yes yes, that was the one!!! My poor father would always choke up and cry when he told me the story. He was petrified of Hurricanes, God bless him.

Anyway, i didnt mean to attack you for saying anything, i m a little nervous and i hope it didnt seem like i was telling you to get a grip.



Its all good, and thank you for being there for me.

No, don't worry a bit. We're just talking; that wasn't anything even close to an attack, DG. I know how the waiting is. In my case, what I look forward to every year is my neighbor telling me: "I told you so; now don't you wish you didn't put up your shutters?" I hope he can always say that, even though it's a tweak irritating.


It looks like Bill is very near his closest point to you.

Databuoy 44018 - SE Cape Cod measured significant wave heights of 16.4 feet (two hours ago at 02:37 EST) and sustained winds at 17 kts. with gusting to 23.

I'd guess you're getting the worst of it[for you] windwise about now. Possibility of higher seas as Bill's influence goes contrary to the prevailing current. Ol' Bill has moved into cooler waters, and looks like he's running into some pretty heavy Shear -- 30 kts. or so. Here also. .

Meanwhile, since you're probably awake, tell us what culinary inventions you've come up with in the last few hours?

Im glad to hear its only 17kts. Thats nothing at the moment.

Lets just hope it stays off the coast and dies quickly in that cooler water eh
