Everyone along the entire east coast should be keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Earl. It is forecast to become a Cat 3 storm and could (still too early to tell) affect the east coast from the Carolinas through New England. Just be aware.
I saw a snippet of that on the weather channel this morning. Hubby commented that the lighthouse he's worked on is in the path. Wish they had put a webcam on it like they once thought they might. I'd love to be watching that now.
West Africa looks like it is pumping one of these out every few days. Danielle, Earl Invest 97 and more to come. They are curving off the coast so I'm looking at some good swells in New England. Time to wax up the Frenzy Kayak for some wave riding.

I love this time of year...every period every day begins with a look at what's going on in the Atlantic. I talk about the computer modeling, about what the probability cones generated by the NHC really mean and what we should be looking for in the near future.
#1 asked question whenever we are talking about specific storms out in the Atlantic: "Do you think they're gonna close school?". It doesn't matter how far out the storm might be and it doesn't seem to sink in with them that for every day school is closed, a scheduled day off is turned into a school day.
It looks like I might pick up a new chain saw chain for the long weekend. Earl could be sitting on top of me or pass to the east. That would mean north east winds which is my exposure. Haven't seen a good blow here yet. When the building inspector was doing his thing he kept sounding like he was inspecting a boat. Possible leaks from wind blown rain. He pointed at the Gulf of Maine to explain why.
The Perfect Storm threw rocks up on the road just around the corner. Generator is gassed and the batteries are all up to snuff.
