Goodbye 09 and Hello 2010! And, why El Nino should get Man of the Year Award for 2010!



Seriously, it is one year I am not sad to see go..

Not a terrible year just been hard on so many people financially and weather wise it was boring in the Atlantic and horrifying in the Pacific where they had a record, bumper year of storms.

The winter is making up for it big time as El Nino holds court on the Atmospheric throne of meteorological troublemakers.

If El Nino could win an award for Man of the Year, this might be his year to win the award!

Example ... this coming two weeks we will experience some of the coldest weather since 1977/78 and that was one cold winter!

A random sampling across a large part of the Southeast and East has the following text in their forecast...from the NWS:

".DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.

VERY COLD AIR WILL BE IN PLACE FOR THE WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT
WEEK. WEEKEND HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE IN THE 30S...AND LOW
TEMPERATURES WILL BE IN THE TEENS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT. STIFF
NORTHWEST WINDS...STRONGEST ON SATURDAY...WILL PRODUCE LOW WIND
CHILLS. EARLY SUNDAY AND MONDAY MORNINGS...THE AIR WILL FEEL LIKE
IT IS ONLY IN THE SINGLE DIGITS IN MANY LOCATIONS.
ONLY MODEST
IMPROVEMENT IN TEMPERATURES AND WIND CHILL IS EXPECTED EARLY NEXT
WEEK.

WITH AN EXTENDED COLD PERIOD EXPECTED...TAKE SOME TIME TO PREPARE
FOR THE COLD. PROPERLY PROTECT EXPOSED WATER PIPES AND CHECK
HEATING UNITS. CONSIDER CLOSING CRAWL SPACE VENTS. REMEMBER SAFETY
RULES FOR SAFE HOME HEATING."


Those are fighting words if you ask me... a gentle warning of what is to come that is not so gentle.

El Nino gave us a quiet hurricane season from Texas to the Carolinas...however he has dumped winter upon us with a vengeance. And, it's not going to stop and the Mason Dixie line and will cause a mess up in Boston and New England. Boy, bet it will be a cold, cold weekend out on Cape Cod this winter for any who feel the need to be near the sea... and see Martha's Vineyard in January...

Some great footage online from that infamous winter. Don't you love youtube? Wish there was youtube of my life from way back when before 1977.. I always remember Paul Harvey's news broadcast the day it snowed in Miami... he ended it with something like.. it would be a cold day in hell... well, am sure it's on youtube somewhere.

Understand I am not saying this winter will be the same... I am saying it is progged to be a cold, cold January, snow needs moisture and maybe we will just get cold, blue skies with no snow, no ice and no freezing rain but I wouldn't bet the farm on it .. Mother nature does whatever she wants and right now she has run off with El Nino :)




Another great video from youtube... great jazz there too..a more personal account:



Some great pics of the Florida Snow Fall in 1977... no music but you get the idea, hum something you like..feel free to pic a tune :)



A good site to check frequently over the next few days might be this one:

http://www.nws.noaa.gov/view/nationalwarnings.php?map=on

Save it... because it may be lit up in pretty colors before the week is over... think of it as "weather art" and remember something... weather changes lives, it changes history, it changes the news. It is the news.

As I said, if you read somewhere that El Nino should get the "Man of the Year" Award you heard it here first.... as I was one of the first to report on El Nino back in the Spring of 09 when people were sashaying around the topic, flirting with it and being very cynical and not ready to jump in and call it an El Nino.

Old post with great pictures:

http://hurricaneharbor.blogspot.com/2009/05/miami-monsoons-loop-current.html

Truth is you can smell El Nino before he shows his nasty little face, you can see it on the water vapor imagery, on satellite sites with water temps, you can see the pattern emerging way before he gets an official pat on the back from NOAA and NASA and the NWS.

2009 was a year when a lot of icons died or their image died. From Farrah to Patrick Swayze, the faces of decades... or the last of the brothers Kennedy ... tough fighters who battled cancer and diseases and made lasting impressions on our lives. Tiger Woods and the death of the illusion of perfection, he is just a man afterall and we go on and so will he but our lives should not be judged by our faults but by our accomplishments, by our quest for our dreams and the good we have done for others in this world.

I know.. I am a dreamer, I am a product of my times. I am a muse who is not always amused but often amused ...very amused... by the product of the artists who use the muse lol. This muse is in a silly mood this January of 2010. I am watching TWC still, listening to the weather radio, playing with my Itouch, listening to my CDs from my favorite music maker who sends me musical notes to fill my face with smiles and he does a damn good job!! I talk to weather friends, I talk to my kids, I talk to fellow writers and dance at the gym doing Zumba lol and I pass notes on facebook to friends that I used to pass notes in the hall to in High School.

I'm Bobbi, what's your name?
What's your game?
Why are you here?
What is your favorite weather?
What is your favorite song?

Sing along with me on New Years Day as we start a new decade the way one would open up a new can of coke so I make a toast to all of you... my friends...

Happy 2010 from me to you.. I haven't changed much from the girl that I was... I'm still a dreamer looking for world peace and wild weather ;)



Stay warm ...stay safe....stay happy and content and have a wonderful 2010!

Besos Bobbi


For Burns... Good night Gracie <3
