Just gonna put this out there, the other board has some borderline sociopathic people.
They are all a bunch of a**holes. You can’t say anything over there without someone saying “read more post less” followed by JBurns or WeatherNC chiming in and threatening to ban you if you post again. That place is full of a bunch of has-been and “never was” meteorologists. Hot garbage

I am posting this here because it will get lost in the Florence thread. Florence is projected to impact a lot of you that are active on this board. I am praying for you and hope that you have your plans set to go. For any of you who do not have a safe place to go, or do not have the monetary means for an extended stay hotel, my home in Atlanta is open to you. Just reach out. Good luck to all of you.

80th win for the Bravos. Feeling it is destiny... Win one series against the Phils and we're for sure in. Colorado will give us the most trouble in the division series.. LA, I think we can beat, and also AZ. With a revamped playoff starting staff,I think we have a small chance to beat the Cubs or Milwaukee in the NLCS. Any team from the American league, Houston, Boston, Yankees, Oakland, all are favorites against the NL champ.

I'm mainly talking about the people hoping for landfalls and stuff like that, I might sound hypocritical because I hope for winter storms but there is a difference between wanting a few inches of snow and a freaking major hurricane to landfall somewhere.

'down for maintenance'... over at Americanwx... lol Really, during a serious hurricane threat? Sounds more like the site crashed again.
I said the same thing. Why are they doing "maintenance" during this time? Its still down. It was down for the 0z Euro and 6z GFS run. That sucks.

Edit: now back up.

Eh, sometimes emergencies happen. I'm surprised we havent had to do an emergency fix yet... lol

Their userbase is massive over the entire USA etc. so more problems arise.

If you can swing it, I would recommend a Davis. I had a couple of accurite stations that kept on going out. Just my opinion but I think you can get a Davis 6250 for probably $350 or so. I’ve had mine for about 6 years with no problems.https://www.weathershack.com/product/davis-instruments-6250.html

Having a tasty Cookout burger & fries for lunch. :):)
So, Larry, now you've succeeded in creating a voracious food yearning ... albeit of a different variety ...
Given this invasion on the cerebrum's taste buds, and it being Friday, you've generated a Northwest Seafood and Publix trip to satisfy a yearning ... lemon boiled shrimp and Alfredo pasta with steamed broccoli and a margarita ...
Ya done good on this one!
