Topic: Wicked weather expected this weekend

I find it strange to be having wicked weather when we don't have a Skype jam scheduled.  Seems like every time we get together, there's a thunderstorm for the ages raging outside.  Now we're expecting a tropical storm to come in from the Southeast and a Canadian cold front coming down from the Northwest, which could lead to a tropical blizzard.  Weird. 

My guess is that it will be awful blowy and wet, but that we'll be fine.  If not, we'll pile into the 4x4 and drag the camper across the mountains to West (by God!) Virginia.

It's all in the track.  The barrier islands make all the difference.  If it stays to the outside of the barrier islands, it will likely roll on up the coast and just give us a good flush.  If it gets inside them, then there's a good chance it will come up the Chesapeake Bay and make things right unpleasant for us.

I'll be riding it out on a 6'6'' quad fish smile I'm waxed up and ready/waiting for the morning when the 17ft swells start rolling in big_smile  Stoked!!

Re: Wicked weather expected this weekend

I'm hoping to hit the river tomorrow morning for some pre-frontal fishing.  I'll probably wade so that I can get the heck out of there a lot quicker than a boat would permit.  I always wear a life jacket when I wade, but tomorrow morning I'll be especially careful.

add a long rope so you can pull against the current or at least get pulled to the shore.  We dont wanna hear how you got washed out to sea.   an if weather passes,, maybe do some skype sat night or sunday?  I have not picked up a guitar in a while.  Im not counting the 2 hours of banging out power chords with my headphones on at 2 am. lolo,lolol

This is between me and the sea.  I don't think I'd make it even with a rope.  Bear in mind this was taken from a distance and that one fall in the foreground is over 20' (>3.5 meters) high.  The river is several hundred yards wide.

But this is more like the area I wade and paddle my canoe.

Can you believe that there's a spot like this right in the midst of Washington, DC suburbs?

Re: Wicked weather expected this weekend

Looks like I'll have to buy some extra generator fuel and bring in some firewood. Its predicted that our area could get some high winds, rain and possibly snow. When we lose power it sometimes takes a few days for them to reach us. The more populated areas take precedence over those of us out on the mountain so we try to always be prepared. Zurf, I've always liked calm water paddleing - used to fish the susquehanna river when we lived in Pa.

Live in the "now" - a contentment of the moment - the past is gone - the future doesn't exist - all we ever really have is now and it's always "now".

Re: Wicked weather expected this weekend

Tropical blizzard? Isn't that an oxymoron?

Batten down your hatches and stay safe everyone!!!

Re: Wicked weather expected this weekend

They make it sound like the end of the world up here. It`s going to be rainy and windy. At my job, they are using it to increase numbers. I`m sure a hurricane up here is a wet day down there. The same way a major snowstorm down there is a minor inconvenience up here. I will use the day to clean up my music room

Re: Wicked weather expected this weekend

The weather stations are predicting an inch of rain per hour for 24-36 hours. That will be the tough bit. Almost better if it does snow. At least snow can be pushed aside. That much rain washes away bridges, highways, houses and anything else it encounters. Pray for snow.

Re: Wicked weather expected this weekend

An inch of rain = 10" of snow.  I don't think I want 240" of snow.
