Friday notes

No surprises if I tell you it's a horrible wet, dreich, grey, breezy day out here. 'Nuff said.

Hurricane Noel (yep) is now blazing north northeast out of the Bahamas and turning into a normal but extremely potent Atlantic depression with winds of 80 mph. As a tropical storm, Noel has turned out to be the deadliest cyclone of the North Atlantic season, claiming 108 lives across the eastern Caribbean.

It is advisable for ALL on the American eastern seaboard, from the Carolinas northward, to closely monitor gale or storm warnings from the National Weather Service. This extends all the way into Canada, as far north as northern Labrador, and on into south- eastern Greenland. The non-tropical successor to Noel will blast across eastern Labrador and dissipate inland in eastern Greenland. Nasty piece of goods.


  1. Popped in to say ,Hey to ya

  2. I wonder if we're going to have any effects from Noel.  How sad for the lives lost.

  3. I do hope that people stay safe, the hurricane sounds very nasty. Jeannette xx  

  4. We got lots of rain yesterday but none far anyway. Try to have a good weekend.

    Hugs, Angela

  5. Really?  Wow.  No seeming like rain (or wind) signs out there right now, nor within the past day.  I suppose I could actually check the weather report here:)  
    (Yes, I"m on the US Eastern seaboard somewhat, in Maryland just not on the beaches / ocean areas.)  Thanks as always:)

  6. I don't think we'll get much rain in our area, but I think Noel is going to be bringing in colder weather for us.
