• While I'm At It....

    From Barry Martin@454:1/1 to All on Fri Mar 31 19:06:00 2023

    Hi Folks!

    Just posted about Daryl's weather; "interesting" up here too in the Quad
    City metropolitian area: Rock Island, Moline, IL, and Davenport,
    Bettendorf, IA. Earlier in the week today's storm predicted for Level
    3/5, then 4/5, yesterday elevated to 5/5. And not one but two storms
    going through: one about 2:30 p.m. and the second around 5 p.m.

    Winds over 60 MPH at times; several instances of hail, generally
    pea-sized but some around halh-inch. Don't know how much rain we
    received but the sump pump is working.

    Several of the smaller cities an town in the areas did have tornado touch-downs; too early for damage reports but at least one house
    collapsed.

    And to add a bit of a topper: today got into the mid-60's -- tomorrow
    it's supposed to snow!!

    On satellite view, it was visible as a very wet overland hurricane.
    Small one, but there ya go.

    Are you copying our weather? That's our weather.

    Well, when we're done with it, we do send it on east...

    hurricane. Small one, but there ya go.

    The good news is it didn't do any damage locally; other areas just north weren't so lucky.

    If one sets a good example....

    Didn't get the snow -- may have drizzled a litle before sunrise. Did
    wander out yesterday (Saturday) afternoon to check for damage: none
    other than hail marks on the wood deck. Did have a pile of snow by the
    fence -- that's not snow, that's a frozen-together pile of hail! The
    hail had been funneled where the two rooflines meet, overshot the gutter
    and piled on the ground.


    Well, when we're done with it, we do send it on east...

    Will do! Plus have to make room for the next storm due in Tuesday.
    Good news: only catagorized as a Level 3 out of 5. Bad news: lasting
    much longer and overnight: anticipated to start noon Tuesday and end 6
    a,m. Wednesday morning.
