So About Hurricane Lee

Sorry if there’s already a thread, I did look and didn’t see anything.

Is it going to hit New York? Boston? Newfoundland? Should I be preparing for impending homelessness again?

by Anonymousreply 41November 9, 2023 1:34 AM

It's weakening. Looks like it won't pose a threat.

Hello, ElderLez!

Just wanted to say “Hi!” You’re the BEST!!

Apologies for the “so” Teri. But you might look like a meteorologist.

[quote]Rough surf, rip currents and hazardous conditions are forecast along much of the U.S. East Coast starting as early as Sunday evening. By Tuesday and Wednesday, a large field of very large waves will reach the U.S. East Coast, "producing dangerous surf, rip current conditions and certainly some beach erosion," Brennan said.

Oh ElderLez! Did you lose a home to one of the big hurricanes that hit the northeast? I’m so sorry and hope that never happens again. I can relate. I’ve posted before I’m from New Orleans. I lost almost a whole city once and it sucked. ☹️

Best of luck to you and everyone in its path.

I posted that twice because I wanted you to know how TRULY sorry I am.

(🙄. My phone has a mind of it own and just posts things before I’m finished sometimes. And now it apparently thinks I should post things twice. Sorry about the double post).

East coasters beware.

[quote] Hurricane Lee is rewriting old rules of meteorology, leaving experts astonished at how rapidly it grew into a goliath Category 5 hurricane. “Hurricanes are getting stronger at higher latitudes,” said Marshall Shepherd, director of the University of Georgia’s atmospheric sciences program and a past president of the American Meteorological Society. “If that trend continues, that brings into play places like Washington, D.C., New York and Boston.”

Dammit, you wait all summer for a hurricane to titillate you with the possibility of hitting and causing damage to your area and then it just fizzles out.

Our building was yellow condemned after Sandy, but we were only displaced for about six months and did not lose much more than our car since we were not on the ground floor. Still it was a traumatic experience and one I am not eager to go through again.

When the thing got to160mph at one point I was like at extreme MARY level. Thankfully it’s weakened. wow people got weird on social media. Trolling of people trying to evacuate was out of control. If it gets stronger you have to check it every few hours to see what it’s doing feeling like a sitting duck. I hope everyone is ok.

I know there are probably trolls messing with people and spreading misinformation about the Morocco earthquake and Hawaiian fires but it’s the misinformation throwing people off that annoys me the most. Another reason not to look at fb yay

R14/ElderLez, that’s REALLY awful! Even for Katrina, I was one of the luckily ones and didn’t lose my home but I had to evacuate and live 300 miles away but only for a month and a half. But when I left it was a city of almost 500,000 people. When I came back it was 70,000 for about a year. Super weird to live in an empty city.

Good luck and stay safe.

Cape Cod looks to be in trouble R20.

R18 wow 300 miles away for any length of time is hard. We were close enough that my wife went twice a week to pick up the mail.

ElderLez/r22, 300 miles was the closest family and we weren’t even allowed back in the city for the first month. Everybody was supposed to be evacuated but some people stayed and the national guard didn’t remove them but they wouldn’t let you in if you were on the outside. So we didn’t even try to come back for the first month and then we did just to check and we had no power so we had to spend two more weeks away before we had electricity. We came back as soon as we could but we probably shouldn’t have. We had no gas or hot water for another month and no internet for 3 months. No cable, no landline, no hot water, no internet, very spotty cell phone service (and no smart phones). Just lots of games of scrabble. It was very dull. And depressing. I think we had an 8pm curfew until Halloween, so even going out to get a drink wasn’t something you could really enjoy unless you went out at 6pm and were prepared to call it a night at 8.

I really hope you’re safe and nothing bad happens. Please keep us updated and good luck.

Why is it these hurricanes meander for days in the ocean, wobbling back and forth but when they get close to the east coast of the US they zoom up that corridor from Carolinas all the way up to maritimes. It’s like we hear about a hurricanes for 3 weeks and it seems to sit in same place for days. Then ZOOM right up the east coast in the course of one day.

by Anonymousreply 25September 12, 2023 3:23 PM

it's a sort of storm battling storm. low pressure in the eastern part of the US and high pressure in the north atlantic is sort of guiding Lee to go away

Looks like Halifax if getting direct hit.

Have you ever studied physical geography? I Guess not, it you’re that clueless how land mass affects the oceans, and Vice versa.

Maybe you could study capitalization.

Do dazzle us with your expert knowledge, R28. Like, water is wet and land is not. Then there’s hot things and cold things. And wind. There’s wind some rehired in there. And the moon.

I have limbs all over my yard and the driveway is covered in pine cones. Big cleanup for me tomorrow but at least it's supposed to be a nice day.

In autumn, the gulf stream pushes hurricanes northward out to colder Atlantic waters and they fizzle.

Don’t try to explain physical geography to the DL—they won’t cotton to it.

R37, I have big pine cones everywhere too, but didn’t get any wind. The past few years my pine trees are just shedding tons of pine cones
