Phase 1: Day 5: Out and About

Out and About: Mailboxes

One of our OHMYGAWDTHEWORLDISENDING local “news” websites just published an article with the headline: “Subtropical Storm ‘Arthur’ Could Hit Carolinas Next Week If Bermuda Triangle Disturbance Grows.”  But of course a quick look at the National Hurricane Center website indicates that “A broad area of low pressure is expected to develop late this week or early this weekend a couple of hundred miles north of the Bahamas. Environmental conditions appear conducive for gradual development of this system, and a subtropical depression or storm is likely to form this weekend while it moves northeastward over the western Atlantic.”  So in other words – unless things change dramatically it isn’t coming anywhere near “the Carolinas.”  Besides, how are we going to buy bread, milk and toilet paper when there isn’t any?  Yikes! 🙂

Anything to get our minds off that pesky virus, right? 😉

    1. Thanks, Mark. They seem to say that every year, and they are probably as accurate as any weather forecast. Storms in general seem to be getting nastier, but trying to forecast a number and severity doesn’t have much value – mostly I think it just gives the media something to talk about. I was mostly amused by the tone of the headline and article. While the NHC is definitely tracking a low pressure system, the news was making it out to be a lot bigger deal than it probably will be, and it doesn’t appear to be coming anywhere close to us.
