August – The New May?

It’s the meat of the season and many pundits point to a quiet year. The MDR is cooler than last year but still has enough warmth to support some development, and the water is plenty warm enough near the US coast.



The NHC map could stay quiet for a lot of this month, but we shall have to watch it anyway……



There’s a long way to go and the peak is still over a month away – never ignore “The Chart”!



So, on we go - will there be….



….. or…..

I'm all in for the later, rather than the former - we shall have to wait and see what happens!

    Morning folks.

    It rained much of the night on the Emerald Coast, but now there is DOOM for Port St. Joe of course.

    Our time will come however.

    DOOM is nigh.

    Thanks for the new blog Cone.

    I always have mixed feelings when this occurs. It's a fresh new beginning, but all of my beautiful prose on the old blog will fast be on the way to the no love sections of The Bunker.

    Morning Dr. Mark!

    I hate it when the blog post misfires as they can't be edited - this was the 2nd pic.



    ... which looks like a good idea any day of the week

    Morning, All!

    It looks like the SAL will keep things quiet until at least the weekend.

    Cone, I don't know how you do it---->getting up so early. I guess, even being a teacher, I am not a morning person. I get my second wind after dinner, when all is quiet.

    Morning LF!

    I get up earlier on days that I bike ride, it's safer, especially when school is in session. Always have been a morning person which made my wife nuts, although she never complained about all the stuff that I got done before she even got up

    Now, I rather resemble this critter by 9 or 10 o'clock.....



    ...and the occasional nap is always welcome!

    Thanks for the new Blog Cone.

    You're right about the local waters. At 90°F we really need to watch out for the Home-Grown. Even if it's a disorganized T.S. it could turn in to Jan of those rain pumps that just sit and dump 50+". But with the heat energy available (Bath-Fuel, Rocket-Water) it could spin up a strong core. Models often have trouble feeling out the home-growns until it's nearly over. Either of these scenarios could prove more interestinger and provide some reasonable entertainment next month. ...next month.

    In other news, the lawn got some much needed sprinkling yesterday. ...and there's more in the 4-cats.

    I've got chorz to do. BBL unless I'm not.





    OH! and LF. The Model A in question has a traditional 3-pedal arrangement. Not hard to drive at all.

    That looks like me most of the time.

    Not to worry Mark, not many bloggers and bloggettes up and at 'em at 3AM (ish). I was tempted to post Juan last thing on the old blog, just for the heck of it, but, when folks see the link to the new, they would ignore the next post as if I was on ignore /all.

    I'll be headed to Savannah this Sunday to disassemble and load a 5 axis cnc machine going to Oregon. Then I will fly to Seattle (much cheaper than Portland) and drive the 3 hours to Portland and sight see on the way down. I have only been in the eastern 2 corners of Oregon and Washington, so I am looking forward to the western exposure.

    I will be as far from traditional tropical mischief as I can get without going to Alaska, and why would I want to go there? I guess then I could say I have been to all the states and US possessions then (except Guam and it's coming up soon).

    Thanks for the new August blog, Cone!
    August is a banner month for Florida based tropical mischief hysterically. Juan needs to keep a weather eye out for something stronger than an Emerald Coast squall.

    My guess is that a home brew system from the Gulf is entirely possible at anytime. Cape Verde is out with SAL and the ITCZ has not been as busy as it usually is what with the cooler temps and all.

    I wonder what Levi is saying nowadays about it...
    Oh, nothing. I just looked. Last thing was July 10.
    What does THAT tell you about the state of affairs we are in?

    Ah ha! I found the new blog and didn't get lost this time. Thanks Cone!

    So, having some time on my hands up North the last few days (for all the wrong reasons), I decided I would check out some TV at night. Started with my 600 pound life, nope. Then Dr. Pimple Popper! I will never be able to eat a pierogi again! I am now religating myself to reruns of anything I have already viewed.

    Queue up Dr. Smith!



    And a bonus blooper!

    Agreed. My best posts were always on the previous blog.

    Good Morning Bunkerites!

    Hi Oss & T!

    I always thought they should have just left Dr. Smith on some planet or another. He was the real pain.
    TCM is always a go to for oldie movies, always a good alternative to the garbage that's on most of cable.

    Taking a peek at the BlackDar this morning, it appears that the ECF is having it's usual problems.....

    Morning, all.

    Thanks for the blast from the past, Oss. That was fun.

    I, too, have trouble finding TV programs to fall asleep by. Usually it is reruns of 2 1/2 Men (NOT with Ashton Kutcher), Reruns of Big Bang, or Reruns of MASH.

    Cone, I almost joined you this AM. Woke up at 4:09AM. Luckily I was able to get back to sleep until 6:45AM.

    Dr. Mark and McBart are . With that rocket fuel bathwater and all those Tstorms, they are due for a hit. All it takes is a little swirly and it is GAME ON.

    Morning folks.

    It rained all day yesterday and all night. It's still raining. I haven't even bothered to check the TCRG, but I'm sure it will show a considerable amount. The pool is overflowing.

    I would suggest that you visit the town of Astoria in the NW corner of Oregon and the Long Beach/Oysterville area of SW Washington. Spent a couple of weeks there last year and found it charming. The constant 60 degree year round weather is also very comfortable this time of the year.

    Latest forecats from CSU....

    CSU continues to call for below-average Atlantic hurricane season: 12 named storms (including Alberto thru Chris), 5 #hurricanes & 1 major hurricane. Tropical Atlantic remains colder than normal. #ElNino formation also possible.https://tropical.colostate.edu/media/sites/111/2018/08/2018-08.pdf …

    I concur with Dr. Mark. I hope 3K explores the Western coastal areas of Oreg. & Wash. We loved the Columbia River Gorge area. There is a Best Western at Cascade Locks, right on the water. Great view. The Mt. Hood area is nice, Mt. St Helen's and Mt. Rainier. I could go on and on. You can have Seattle--too much traffic, not enough lanes!

    If you drive down the coast to Depoe Bay to see the whales (from shore!), you can go to Newport to the Rogue Brewery and have some lunch and Dead Guy Ale.

    I dont have much extra time whilist I am there but I will check it out if I have time. Thanks for the tip Mark and LF....and the reminder of cooler temps, I will remember to pack a jacket.

    Astoria is beautiful, too. We found the "Kindergarten Cop" School (John Jacob Aster Elem.) and "The Goonies" house.

    It's still raining here. Has been for about 60 hours without stop.

    You won't need a jacket in most of Oregon and Washington. Only the area near the coast. The breeze comes off the cold Pacific waters and keeps it a constant cool tempature. Although cool is relative. It's warm in winter. By the time you get inland as far as Portland/Vancouver it'll be hot as hell like anyplace else in summer.

    Portland is a real S***hole in my opinion. I have no use for the place, but there are nice areas not to far away. LF is right about the Columbia Gorge. There are some real spectacular waterfalls there, but every time I've been there the place was so crowded that it kind of ruined it. Huge crowds every where. Most of them were Arabs and various Asians. Not sure what that was all about. I guess they run in herds.

    LOL. We did that too. That was Mamas idea. I had never heard of the goonies before or since that, but I saw the house for what it's worth.
