Sunny in my area. Belach. I want snow!

I know. My wife and I have been saying this for a month now. All done with summer, ready for fall. Fall can start any minute now. Whenever you're ready, Fall, we're standing by.

Careful what you wish for….

”Have a nice TRIP, see you next FALL!” as the old schoolyard prank goes…

E: Maybe “autumn “ would be a better choice of words when imps are around…

I'm surprised this thread is still going lol.

Ida was really bad up here in New England. I didn't think much of it since it was a remnant system, but wow did Ida pack a punch. My town got 7-8 inches of rain and caused the worst flooding since Hurricane Irene in 2011. Thankfully, neither me nor anyone I knew lost power. The cause of Ida's devastating flooding was due to it interacting with a trough in just the right way to both enhance its rainfall and make it a potent tornado threat; without this interaction, Ida's remnants would've produced 2-3 inches maximum.

Hurricane Sam from late September to early October was a very impressive "fish storm" - one that remains out to sea without impacting any landmass. On September 26th, Sam reached peak intensity, but a recon flight that would've been there in time was rescheduled to later in the day, and once it arrived the storm had begun weakening due to an Eyewall Replacement Cycle. Recon found a pressure of 929 millibars (mbar) when the eye had just collapsed, and the pressure rose exponentially (5mbar between passes 1 and 2, then 10mbar between passes 2 and 3). Backtracking to Sam's peak appearance a few hours prior, it probably peaked as a 160-165 mph Category 5 hurricane with a central pressure of 924-926 mbar. The heat content of the waters Sam was over were able to support a maximum intensity of 925 (+/-3) mbar, and using the KCZ pressure-wind relationship, the 924-926 mbar estimates would support 140-145 knots (160-165 mph). Dvorak presentation (as shown below) was classifiable as T#7.0, or 140 kt/160 mph.

Sam would slowly recover from the EWRC and peak as a 150-155 mph high-end Category 4 several days later, and had a third and final peak before turning into a non-tropical cyclone in the far northern Atlantic. Sam maintained Category 4+ status for longer than all but a few Atlantic hurricanes in the last 50 years, and longer than any other storm this year.

Anyone ever been in a 'dry hurricane'? 

One of the weirdest things I've seen.  Hurricane force (remnant) winds and not a cloud in the sky.

"Camped In" with my wife and new son as we were without power for 10 days.  Thank God the plumbing still worked! 

 

Oddest part was how social my neighborhood was during the time - without TVs, everyone hung out outside.  Reminds me of pictures of the 50s.

First it was a summer of "heat domes," then transitioning into an atmospheric river coming through, and now a second, bigger "bomb" cyclone (a deep, steep, atmospheric depression; this one is a record low) slowly approaching the Pacific Northwest. Vancouver Island is about to get a heavy lashing (the surf is already getting heavy at Tofino), but fortunately I think I'm far enough up the Fraser Valley to avoid the worst of it.

The real fun is out in the Juan de Fuca Strait / Salish Sea. A container ship lost forty containers overboard in the rough seas during the first cyclone, and a container still aboard believed to contain mining supplies has caught fire. And this ship is stuck in the path of the storm. This will be... interesting.

"Dry" is just not a term I can associate with Ike.

"Wading three blocks to get to my house while watching people kayaking down the street " just doesn't go with "dry".

That's because you hogged all the water. ;D

 

We got nary a drop. 

Sky had this really weird yellow tint.  Winds were straightine, sustained and otherworldly without clouds.

Two-day total of rain in the Fraser Valley: 220mm. The rain has stopped, but the the border-crossing Sumas River and the Nooksack River in Washington State are overflowing into Sumas Prairie. Which now resembles its former name from 100 years ago, Sumas Lake

This is the highway that I usually take to work, this morning:

Needless to say, no work today, because I don't drive a hovercraft.

Aerial view of the overpass that last pic was taken from (not by me).

Circled is Castle Fun Park. Mini-golf is one big water hazard now...

Like, wow....

Roads and rail are cut off. How long until the supermarkets are empty?

And I wonder how much damage has been done to the highway....

We’ll poop I’m stuck in Chilliwack :(

looks like Sumas lake is returning from the  dead.

To the east there is landslides and near Yale a CPR train derailed.

ABC1-DA17-A8-F9-4-B7-E-8-E30-819108-C16-Schools and other things in Chilliwack have been closed for 2 days now.

You don’t need a hover craft. All you need is a hover van *laughs in clarkson*

 Yeah, I just decided to pay the premium and buy milk at the gas station while filling up, which was also a zoo. Other than that we’re reasonably well stocked. Also made sure to stop At the Jolly MilLer to stoCk up on Other houseHOLd supplies before there’s a run on that.
