    Thanks, Lib and Dewey.

    Lib, you have no idea how appropriate your "toast" is. It has been quite a day--and it ain't over yet.

    Now I know why people drink!

    TROPICAL STORM SANDY DISCUSSION NUMBER 2
    NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL182012
    500 PM EDT MON OCT 22 2012

    THE AIR FORCE HURRICANE HUNTERS FOUND A BAND OF SURFACE WINDS NEAR
    35 KT OVER THE SOUTHEASTERN QUADRANT OF THE CYCLONE...SO THE SYSTEM
    IS BEING NAMED AT THIS TIME. THE ENVIRONMENT SHOULD BE
    CHARACTERIZED BY WEAK SHEAR...AND THE STORM WILL BE OVER WARM
    WATERS...FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS SO ADDITIONAL STRENGTHENING IS
    LIKELY. THE OFFICIAL INTENSITY FORECAST IS SIMILAR TO THE PREVIOUS
    FORECAST AND CLOSE TO THE MODEL CONSENSUS. THIS COULD BE
    CONSERVATIVE...HOWEVER...AS THE RAPID INTENSIFICATION INDEX SHOWS A
    SIGNIFICANT POSSIBILITY OF RAPID STRENGTHENING DURING THE NEXT DAY
    OR SO.

    AIRCRAFT OBSERVATIONS SHOW THAT THE CENTRAL REGION OF THE STORM IS
    CHARACTERIZED BY A FAIRLY FLAT PRESSURE FIELD...BUT THE CENTER
    APPEARS TO BE LOCATED SOMEWHAT TO THE SOUTH OF THE PREVIOUS
    ESTIMATES. HOWEVER...LITTLE OVERALL MOTION APPEARS TO HAVE TAKEN
    PLACE THIS AFTERNOON. GLOBAL MODELS PREDICT THAT THE
    MID-TROPOSPHERIC RIDGE TO THE NORTH OF SANDY WILL GRADUALLY WEAKEN
    WITHIN THE NEXT DAY OR SO...WHICH SHOULD ALLOW THE TROPICAL CYCLONE
    TO BEGIN MOVING NORTH TO NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD SOON. THE OFFICIAL
    TRACK FORECAST IS SOMEWHAT TO THE WEST OF THE MODEL CONSENSUS BUT
    NOT AS FAR WEST AS THE LATEST ECMWF FORECAST. THIS IS ONLY A
    LITTLE TO THE WEST OF THE PREVIOUS OFFICIAL FORECAST TRACK.

    FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

    INIT 22/2100Z 12.5N 78.5W 35 KT 40 MPH
    12H 23/0600Z 13.6N 78.5W 35 KT 40 MPH
    24H 23/1800Z 14.9N 78.3W 45 KT 50 MPH
    36H 24/0600Z 16.4N 77.8W 55 KT 65 MPH
    48H 24/1800Z 18.2N 77.2W 60 KT 70 MPH
    72H 25/1800Z 22.0N 76.0W 50 KT 60 MPH...OVER WATER
    96H 26/1800Z 25.0N 75.0W 50 KT 60 MPH
    120H 27/1800Z 27.5N 74.0W 45 KT 50 MPH

    My friends all try to get me to write a novel about my life and family. Evidently, it is more screwed-up than most. You name it, someone has done it!

    Lib...it's Cos that is the ant expert in relation to tropical cyclones on this site.

    Suga' ants don't count.
    It's fire ants building high mounds(pardon the French) in unusual places(hopefully not your living room). Outside on a soccer field that's never seen them is the protypical example.

    Mr Crabs is a money thieving SOB. He must be an insurance adjuster.

    I had a mole dig up a hole in the exact location one of my irrigation turf heads lies. The one and only mole hole in the lawn. I don't know what it means aside from the fact I wasn't too pleased.

    LOL, rates are sure to rise 30% next year due to beach erosion and passing rain bands.
