Purdy, ain’t it? Froze beans yesterday. That would be yesterday, August 15th. You are correct in thinking that ain’t right. Details to follow.
124° seems a little over the top if you ask me. And yet… Plus… That’s a Wunderground station about six miles from the Farm. Let me also say that beyond the obvious of 11 degrees, 113, 124– what’s the difference?
We are cucumber rich. I used this phrase in a conversation with Joanie at SuperLu this morning. She laughed. (SuperLu is the grocery store SuperValu. The “Va” on the sign on the side of the building were burnt out for a long time, hence, SuperLu.) I may drop in with a small bag of cukes
That’s what NOAA Weather Radio is telling me this morning.
You won’t believe it! Thunderstorm.
These are RadarScope (RS) screen shots captured between 10:04 and 10:05 this morning. To orient you, we’re going west to east beginning with the southern most states of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, then again west to east one notch further north. While is is true that the center of the low pressure system that is/was
in me is thoroughly confused. More to come, you can count on it.
Looks like it’s raining a little. https://www.earthcam.com/usa/louisiana/neworleans/bourbonstreet/?cam=catsmeow2

Potential Tropical Cyclone Two …DISTURBANCE IS NOT A DEPRESSION YET BUT EXPECTED TO BE ONE SOON… …STORM SURGE, HEAVY RAINS, AND HURRICANE CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE NORTH-CENTRAL GULF COAST IN A COUPLE OF DAYS… Citations after I’ve had coffee. Mr. Big Food tells me Drudge is on it.
Just a few minutes ago. Right now we’re forecast to get some wind and rain. Here’s the thing that occurred to me. They have issued a hurricane watch. But it is still “POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE TWO.” They are bored or super confident in the models. Rest assured I will monitor this and provide commentary.
It’s almost like the weather folks are bored. No matter. Patio and outdoor kitchen are buttoned up except for a few plants on the picnic table. Bunkhouse is tidied up and ready to receive occupants should we have to bug out of the Big House. Frankly, I’m not seeing it. The low pressure of the
So I’ve been seeing these crazy numbers, having fun with them, but thinking they can’t possibly be correct– just like those 197 lightening strikes in the past 48 hours. But apparently it really does feel like 121 out there. I will not be engaged in any strenuous activity. Just for sh*ts & giggles, I took
With regard to a possible developing tropical system near the north central Gulf coast by late this week, based on the ECENS and GEFS, it currently appears most probable that it will migrate into the northwestern Gulf coast vicinity by this weekend, before weakening inland of coastal areas. The track of any lingering remnants becomes
Simmer down. I happened to watch the weather forecast on the television set with Mr. Big Food this morning. I kid you not, Joel said something like, “It’s July in Mississippi. You already know what I’m going to say.” And sure enough, we did. Hot. Humid. Heat Index over 100. The news is there’s a
Though by the look of the raw radar, I think we’ll miss the very worst of it. Gotta say, all of my weather stuff is crackling with lightening.
en Record. Mississippi summer. 80 degrees before 8am.
Quiz: Which feels like feels worse? a) 90°F, 54% humidity, with heat index of 102° b) 84°, 84% humidity (and rising), with heat index of 96° The correct answer, boys & girls, is ‘b’. We had a passing shower.
Good morning. Independence Day is right around the corner.
