Hurricane Joaquin

Joaquin is off the coast and headed in our direction.  There is a watch on.  We had flooding rain water last night as we came home and it has been rainy today.  We will keep an eye on this storm in case it starts coming into the area.  We have been after our maintenance lady to get the generator all the way full of fuel.  This looks like a good time to get that job done.  This is our report as of this evening.  

Although computer model simulations have had the advantage of ingesting high-resolution real-world data from the Air Force reconnaissance flight earlier in the day, it doesn't seem to have brought them any closer to a consensus.
The American GFS model forecast continues to show Joaquin making an alarming northwestward turn, slamming it right into Virginia, Maryland or North Carolina this weekend. Meanwhile, the European ECMWF model suggests Joaquin has a chance of staying away from the U.S. East Coast.
It is simply too soon and the uncertainty is too high to determine any impacts from Joaquin itself for the U.S. East Coast at this time.

  1. We will be praying that you're safe from this one. Apparently there's been plenty of flooding out there already.

  2. Hope the models steer it back into the Atlantic or that it slows way down. Poor NC! Hope it misses you. I hate watching these hurricane models and preparing and praying for days and days.
