Tropical Musing on Invest 97 aka Karen, Vincent, Tom Clancy, Zelda, American Pie, Government Shutdown & Life...
Great view of the world and specifically the developing system in the Caribbean that will most likely be our next named storm. Note the Upper Level Lows still steal your attention while searching for the hurricanes that should be there this time of year.
Going in closer you can see how it is trying to pull itself together.
Karen storms always have a problem pulling themselves together...
The GFS develops a weak storm moving up towards LA/MS and gets caught up with the much stronger front.
The GFDL brings a small, weak storm into Mobile Bay from the SW after clipping Grand Isle, LA.
Why does the song American Pie come to mind here? Don't know.. I have a strange mind. There's a tune stuck in my head and I cannot pin it down and it's driving me crazy. Can't remember if its a music video from long ago or a scene in a movie but it's making me nuts.
American Pie is a good song for today... the tropics have almost died... the Government is shut down and Karen is going to take the last train for the coast the day the tropics died.
And we were singing....
Incredible video...anyone who loves music or history MUST watch that video... Great enigmatic video for a great enigmatic song that means so much to so many. The 3 men I admire most... (not telling) took the last train for the coast and I'd say more but an annoying friend from way back is still annoying the hell out of me and psychoanalyzing me and obviously is worrying way too much because he thinks I am mourning the loss of something and its not always what or who everyone thinks Bobbi is thinking of...
Mourning the loss of the 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season :P
I don't have to be a rocket scientist to know the season is over when TWC is in a rush to name
Why do I keep hearing that line in my head..????
Well, might have something to do with TWC giving up on the Tropics despite the flare up of Karen in the Caribbean. They are hot to trot out the Winter Storm Name List and name an early October Winter Storm.
Look at them hyping that storm.. Hey got to go where the weather is right?
See down there there is a small screen you can click on for the Tropics...
Good bye Atlantic Hurricane Season...
Okay...............as I said i do believe that most seasons like this have one last Swan Song in the midst of Indian Winter. Will it be Karen or Lorenzo or maybe Melissa?
Keep watching...I'm not going anywhere...
Just watching the weather and talking to my friends about music, life and weather... and blogging my little heart out here looking for things to say other than "WOW, Tropical Storm Jerry... Big Whoopie!!"
Giggling... Honestly it's too early to write the OBIT on the 2013 Hurricane Season...
Oy...starfish on the beach...what an image...
We had seasons in the sun and mediocre tropical storms and now... we have WINTER larger than life. Mind you if I get a lot of snow out of this winter that would be fine and dandy. One of the reasons I stay up here is I've come to be exceedingly fond of SNO... wink wink
What else did I see on TWC's site that you can spend a life time going thru...not my cup of tea.
God I love Blair Underwood... go figure... they are remaking Ironsides and I'm lost in past hurricane seasons???
As for the once and future Karen (yes another literary reference)
BobbiStorm's Bottom Line:
Watch the trend... if it trends to the right in the models it's something to think on.
Breaking News on Tropical Storm Jerry... he is stationary currently...
Breaking News on Politics and the SHUTDOWN...
From the NHC site..
Breaking News from Breaking News..
Tom Clancy died in Baltimore..
A much loved writer...
A voice of sanity online.
Latest model runs:
Again...watch the trends in models and remember it's not forecast to form immediately and we aren't sure where the exact center is ... but we will know soon when recon tells us what it found.
I'll be back later with more info on WEATHER and the TROPICS and a little less musing ...but hey sometimes a girls got to do what a girls got to do...
Ps for that person here who just LOVES the PS.
Sorry I couldn't resist... weather people do so love One Life to Live. Must have been all those thunderstorms in Llandview...ever notice how many names on the NHC Hurricane List that come from that show...
And, was Larry's real name REALLY Michael Storm??? Hmnnnn
