Re: A Dilly Of A Storm Is Brewing

Central coastal NJ here.  We're also to get the same storm/s with heavy rain, wind, hail and possible tornadoes.  I'm about 1/2 mile from the bay, but on much hirer ground so no issue with flooding.  However, my house is a corner property that faces the north and the side facing the bay is the east side, so I get the brunt of a nor'easter's wind and rain, or a storm moving from west to east, as this storm is doing.

@Love my grandkids   That Petunia ia a smart kitty.  We have a small closet under the stairs. The cats make a beeline there when they get scared. We have to leave the door open enough for them to go in.  Petunia headed there at the first raindrop and clap of thunder.

 

Schools are getting out early in some places.  have never seen that with thunderstorm warnings.

Severe thunderstorms are forecast for today. here in NE PA.  The sky is getting dark and I can hear rumbles of thunder. The cats have not run for the closet yet so it might not be too close yet.

 

Don't mind rain, not wild about lightning, but I have grown to hate the wind with a bad storm. Is it me or has the wind been crazy lately?

 

I moved the car from under a tree next to the driveway. Don't need to find the tree on the HRV, lease is up in Nov. lol

 

Are you expecting nasty weather?  Everyone stay safe.


Yes, we are in the middle of a bad storm and I hate it !

@ciao_bella  I grew up in Monmouth County on the bay.

Re: A Dilly Of A Storm Is Brewing

I, too, have noticed frequent strong winds in the past few years.

 

It seems that my hanging baskets are brought into the garage for shelter from the winds, more than they are outdoors where they should be!

In preparation for today's storm, I started laundry first thing this morning, so that if we lose power, my clothes won't be stuck in a stalled washer or dryer.

@CrazyKittyLvr2    Our wind was unusually bad all winter then Spring came, and it got worse.  Every day after day, it howls. Dust blows and smoke from the fires blows in.  Even my poor dog had a sneezing fit this morning.

Re: A Dilly Of A Storm Is Brewing

Sky was looking brighter - so I took a chance to  "run" down to the deli.  It's a 10 minute round trip.

 

My timing was good - just as I was coming back into the building -  "breeze" was becomng "wind" and the sky is getting that strange "storm color."

I had to run a quick errand around the corner .... sort of light drizzle at the moment.

 

I do have one "must do" outside errand that can wait until tomorrow.

 

My only "outside" commtments this week are Wednesday and Friday afternoons. 

 

Other commitments are all on Zoom .... weather doesn't matter.
