  • Cool tropical news...

    So this is a rarity!  The 7th recorded tropical/subtropical cyclone EVER has formed in the South Atlantic Ocean!  The  system is just off the coast of Brazil, and had winds around 35 mph (tropical depression strength).   Because these tropical events are so rare, there is no official “naming” of these disturbances.    The “no-name” storm has weakened this morning, and the sea surface temps are warm, but not warm enough to really support any further strengthening. Plus, the storm is moving east out to sea, and won’t threaten any land.  Just something I thought was pretty darn cool!

    Here’s a look at the satellite courtesy of NOAA:

Morning all, After 2 days of storms, we dawned to a lovely day. I do hear rumors that there may be storms later today or tomorrow. Seems our bad weather mostly comes at night. I personally sleep well through it, but hubby tends to lie awake listening for the least sound that might spell trouble. Perhaps that is the reason that I sleep well through it. Last couple of days have been extremely busy, but I'm hoping that today will slow down somewhat. I can only do so many stressful days in a row! We do have daffodils now! I'v'e noticed them for about a week now. They seem to have popped up everywhere. Spring is truly arriving! AJ, If you click on chas' name at the top of his post, it will take you to his blog. He has some very interesting reading there. Y'all have a good day. (I heard yesterday on the radio that "Have a nice day" is the most overused and insincere thing people say.) I do truly hope that each of y'all have a good day! Gwen ;)

Good Morning Chas and Margie Good luck Chas on your new blog what is it about and how do you get to it sure loved your wife's blog. Getting once again back to our San Diego Weather, Margie, it was warmer by you yesterday then here though starting today it is suppose to be just beautiful again and I welcome that, should be a great morning for my walk. Hope everybody is doing well and just waiting for signs of spring popping up all around them, though just watching Fox and Bill is talking about tornadoes, oh dear, that is terrible. xoAJ

Hi chas, We've had nice weather in Western Maryland for a number of days now. It actually got up to 65 yesterday. I hope we don't get too much rain but a little rain would be nice to wash the salt of everything. I have all kinds of things popping up in my garden so this warm weather has spurred on the growth. I like that. Have a great day, Margie

Hi Ms JD, Nice weather all over for a time here in MD. Looks like rain for the ext 4 days. Like the ground needs any more water. :roll: Temps will remain fair however, so I guess that is something. Hi everyone. Hope all is well with you guys. I've been spending most of my time reading and researching mostly for my blog. I've a couple of new updates since my last visit here if you're interested. Have a great day. chas
