Everyone knows that April is the heart of severe weather season and that being out in such weather can be severely foolish.

The SPC maps promise to be colorful this month….



National radar and Satellite as well…..





Just remember one thing before you head out the door...

    Juan should always remember that these weaker systems are not as influenced by the steering currents. This cloud could hit anywhere from Tampico to Newfoundland.

    You HAD to bring up Tampico.....

    It's a good thing Jeff didn't see that!
    Saying Tampico around Jeff is like saying "Niagra Falls" around Moe...

    Yes, I am not sure about the Alabama Georgia conditions getting worse. It may be a good thing. The clay landscape doesn't handle heavy rains very well.

    I am a bit confused by the legend part: "Drought continues but improves." Fortunately I didn't see any of that color on that part of the map. Does the "improves" part mean the drought is more pronounced making it greater which is improving what it already is. If I improved my property, I add more of the same to it. So a drought improvement to me would mean MORE drought. But if it is as I suppose, that the actual meaning of the term is that the drought is still there, but its effects will lessen or wane, then they should have said Drought continues, but lessens.
    This is because the word "improve" can mean different things: Definition of improve


    improved

    improving

    • transitive verb
    • 1 archaic : employ, use
    • 2a : to enhance in value or quality : make betterb : to increase the value of (land or property) by making it more useful for humans (as by cultivation or the erection of buildings)c : to grade and drain (a road) and apply surfacing material other than pavement
    • 3 : to use to good purpose
    • intransitive verb
    • 1 : to advance or make progress in what is desirable
    • 2 : to make useful additions or amendments

      I cite the example from the plot of the movie "One flew over the cuckoo's nest." Apparently, the conduct of certain people is not acceptable by society in general as judged by some "experts" in the field of human behavior. The movie showed who was crazy and who wasn't. But because of the whims of a certain "expert," people were "improved" by lobotomy. This caused a person to make an "improvement" in the structure of the building to make a better point of egress.

      So, "improvement" is a subjective term and the application of the word to any subject or situation is not universally accepted.
      For example: If I put cream in some people's coffee, it is not an improvement, if I put sugar in some coffee, again, not an improvement for them but for others it may be quite an improvement. I always find a small amount of Rum or Whiskey is an improvement to my coffee...

      So is an improved drought a better drought? Or is it a weaker Juan?

      I am sure those who have the WC will be hearing more about it as the HQ for it is there in Atlanta, in the middle of the "Drought persists, likely to develop" area.

      My forecast skills are no match for Mark just as the the Jedi are no match for the droidekas. Marks forecast skills ARE legendary and are insured by Lloyds of London for a lot, I know, a lot.

      It's a stormy off and on rainy/balmy day here in the Cumberland Valley of TN. Outdoor activities may be carried out, but the chances are they will have to be carried back in. It is one of those days when every big fluffy dark cloud looks like it is full of rain, but isn't, so after awhile you get complacent and start doing things outside. Then, out of nowhere, a gully-washer hits! You manage to get everything back inside, but your ham sandwich is totally soaked. It's funny, we can soak bread and donuts in all manner of liquids, but water just ruins it! If I have a good and fresh sandwich that ants have gotten to, as long as it is still fresh, I will eat it, ants and all! But let bread get soggy with water and it becomes a useless sandwich another piece of trash to throw away. Even ants don't like wet soggy bread. Dogs do though. But they eat sh** so, their tolerance for edibles is much higher than most of us anyway, so I don't use their discriminatory sense as my own. I mean if I could die from eating chocolate, I probably would!

      So don't trust the weather here today.

      I am going to do something important now.

    Afternoon Triple K!

    Loved that movie, it's probably time for a re-watch to improve my mental health. Some option #2 practice wouldn't be detrimental, either. The caveat being that if Juan has too much option #2(according to the LAW) and then drives a vehicle, the effect is likely to not improve Juan's disposition. I'm writing a letter to a lawyer, which is not helping improve anything and certainly doesn't seem important, but is always expensive.

    In my experience it is always the letters FROM lawyers that seem to make matters worse and always is expensive, (for that lawyer or the Juan you have to hire to oppose him..) especially Juans that I need him to write.

    This "Juan" thing is getting out of hand. I accidentally wrote Juan in a document and the person receiving it was confused.
    I didn't even try to explain...
    I tend to digress a lot in lengthy explanations and in this instance it would be like Dick Steele replied when someone threatened to turn him into swiss cheese: "....and that's no gouda!"

    Oh,, why wait for August. Let's get our share of the festerizing done early this season. Then L8R is the season we can relax with some more Option #2.

    I'm up for some pre-swirlie cloud watching. Sheer seems a bit high, but I'm thinking Cat-4 right over the Caymens.

    Where's Recoon, and oh yea.... Ace-Cat missed.

    How does everyJuan "feel" about this?

    Good Afternoon All. Its warm and muggy outside.

    My laptop took a dump also the other morning, I was typing something for here and pfffffft! It is back running today, but I have to find the router password to get it online.

    So I am using Dee's laptop when she is not busy with her volunteer work. But I could not log on to the "Bunker" using Microsofts new and unimproved The Edge inter net explorer. But I did find the old IE on this one I need to install FireFox on this one.

    If I am not around I am nearby. Using the phone, Like LC, I have a very hard time keyboard on the phone.

    Hi Barkeep, LC & Kai!

    I'm all for the establishment pukes going willy nilly and throwing names into the wind like they have some semblance of objectivity left. It makes us FBM's look much more mainstream because we really don't give a cr*p and will hype any cloud that we like - pretty much just like they do. Only we do it with class

    Friday afternoon and the bar is OPEN!



    First round is on me!

    I bought a cheap bluetooth keyboard to keep at home for just such circumstances, and for texting my kids. It's just so much easier.

    I actually bought one last fall, but it is probably where the pass word for the router is. We are going to repaint the guest room and everything but the bed has been put in the 3rd bedroom which has been used for an office, hobby room and junque room. there is a small pathway to the window and Dee's desk. I can actually see the box the router came in but I have to move 5 feet of stuff to get there. To move it would eat into my Option #2 practice time.

    I do like this laptop for one thing, though, when typing on the Bunker it does not go on and on, it jumps to the next line. I do not have to move the scroll bar on the bottom of the leave comment box to check spelling.

    Hi Aug & Cos!

    I have to always think twice when I am typing "one" outside of the Bunker. I've almost typed Juan a couple of times, but so far I have managed to catch myself. Probably happen Juan of these days.

    So, Cos is finding evidence of lowering pressures in the Caribbean & the GFS is showing our first Ghostie. Let the games begin!

    Good morning and afternoon, everyjuan!!! Back for the weekend and then gone again. I may need a vacation from all these trips! Just go vegetate in a hotel room away from everyjuan! I think the Russian artist who does the amazingly beautiful art on dirty cars needs to do something in the quarter inch thick dust on everything here. Son did mop and vacuum, but I literally had to dust in my bedroom before I dare try to sleep in there. But I won't say a word as he always encourages me for the trips I _want_ to take and never complains about being left to take care of the dogs. He's a good son.

    Breakfast's on the sideboard: Cajun Breakfast Casserole, Green Chili Breakfast Burritos, Nutty Buckwheat Buttermilk Pancakes, banana bread french toast or pepperoni pizza waffles with butter and syrup, Griddled Egg-and-Bacon Sandwiches, Pulled Baby-Back Ribs Benedict, thick slices of ham, bacon filled fried rice, Sausage, Pepper and Mushroom Hash with fried egg on top, fresh fruit, juice, coffee or tea. Enjoy!

    Nice to see you for a drive by weekend! Yes, you are lucky to have him so close and helpful. My kids would help, but they are just a bit to far.

    Breakfast!

    I'll have Griddled Egg-and-Bacon Sandwiches, Pulled Baby-Back Ribs Benedict, thick slices of ham, bacon filled fried rice, Sausage, Pepper and Mushroom Hash with fried egg on top, and coffee - TYVM and enjoy the rest at home

    Mornin, today is dig out the stump day, so I am procrastinating as much as possibe to get closer to the departure time for the bus and trailer races tonight at Desoto speedway

    Kai, there should be a pin or password on the back side of your router if it came from an ISP. If not, you can access the programming by drilling directly into it with the typical default paths (192.168.1.1 through your browser as an example), then you can change passwords if desired. A quick search on the net with your ISP or router type will produce default user names and passwords to gain access.

    On the phone item, most phones have a little microphone button that allows you to do text to speech directly, including punctuation. Try it, it actually works pretty well and can be trained to work better with some settings changes.

    Good Luck !

    Edit, there also may be a WPS button on the router that will provide access by a simple push of the button.

    Yes, true story.
    I had to resend.

    It rained a LOT from yesterday afternoon on and all night showers swept through waking me up a few times.
    There are a few flood watches out here in Tennessee.
    I went 30 miles south last night to visit my brother. His wife went to a bachelorette party last night and since she doesn't appreciate the nuance and the essence and unique personage that makes the me, I have a standing invitation to visit when she is gone. My brother and I are close and have been our whole lives. We have a project we are working on and we need to cuss and discuss it one on one and also go to Rib City and eat some awesome food and drink that beer they put an orange slice in.
    But I digress...
    On the way down, on the main highway, a 2 lane road that is well maintained that winds around hills and valleys, a lot of water that had fallen from the sky (it was a little more than rain, it was like standing under a bucket when some Juan dumps it on you, ironically, that is how I will be bathing when I am in the Philippines. Except the bucket is a 30 gallon plastic trash can and the pouring is done by a 5 qt size plastic sauce pan looking ladle. It was really not hard to get used to. Perhaps in a way, it seemed a more civilized way of bathing, being annointed rather than being sprayed. I am sensitive to being treated as cattle is treated after flying on the airlines so much last year and this.) A lot of that water was now crossing the road and as I drove over it at about 55 mph, I found myself driving a hydroplaning vehicle. It was not too bad but it did want to veer off the road and as it did, one of the steering tires hit grip and it softly jerked it back on course which felt like a fishtailing. For about 10 seconds, I just slowly let it find the pavement so I could regain control, much as you would when finding you are on solid ice while crossing a bridge, you just leave everything status quo and pray the vehicle keeps going straight..
    So the weather was messing with me yesterday, well it had to. I fixed all the roof leaks and now it isn't as easy to get to me.

    But it will find a way.

    Even on the days with no weather, I will get sunburned.

    I am becoming "English" or more accurately "British."

    The weather in London (Not awfully far away from Lib) is unpredictable as it is on an island. But rain and fog are more often than not, a frequent occurrence. So, Londoners always carry an umbrella. Not the short telescoping kind we have here, oh no! these are the full length kind with the metal rod sticking out the top. They have fancy covers and ornate carved handles and can be used as a cane or even a weapon. So even if there is a sunny day and no precipitation is forecast, the stylish Londoner will take his umbrella. You can point and laugh all you want, they don't care or notice. It has become part of their stylish ensemble and routine. It defines them and they are NEVER caught without an umbrella.

    That is me, sort of. I don't take an umbrella, no. They do not fare well in gusts over 20. No, I just am ready for a grim and wistful expression that I will put on my face and some chapstick. Yes, tornadoes will give you chapped lips and so will hurricanes and many other severe weather phenomenon. It is a little known fact, but since the other effects are far more devastating, the simple truth about chapped lips is ignored and the survivors suffer.

    Not me.

    My chapstick is my umbrella. It is even a good lightning strike indicator. If you think you have been struck by lightning, pull out your chapstick. if it is melted, it is likely you have been struck! or you are on fire, in any case, it is a good indicator that you will soon need some serious medical attention. The sooner you call 911 the better you chances for survival.

    So, I wanted to share this life-saving advice. After all, isn't that what the Bunker is all about? (I mean besides option #2 exercises and drills)

    There is a reason that my forecasting skills are legendary.

    I cheat.

    I rely on a weather model that is looked down on by the establishment pukes for it's lack of dynamism. Yes. The 06Z NAM, the Cadillac of all weather models.

    The local establishment pukes are saying that we will have "severe thunderstorms" tonight. I believe they are hyping because the Cadillac of all weather models does not show it. Just a few scattered clouds moving around.

    The 06Z NAM does show that we will get a pencil thin FROPA tomorrow night though. You can take that to the bank.

    I will issue my goodbye cruel world in advance just in case there is no time later.

    Goodbye cruel world

    Did I miss the memo? When did grocery shopping become a leisure time stroll?

    Also, why do people start their grocery shopping excursion in the meat, chicken and frozen aisles FIRST-- and then proceed to stroll about the rest of this behemoth of a store while every thing defrosts/ melts?

    That is all.
