Tropical Storm Andrea

Tropical Storm Andrea, the first named tropical cyclone of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season, formed in the east-central Gulf of Mexico late this afternoon. Strong showers and thunderstorms cover areas from the Yucatan Channel through the eastern Gulf of Mexico and across Florida as this system continues to organize. -Source Weather wunderground

Today has been gray all day with little rain that is all going to change tonight as the storm moves closer.
We are expecting between 4-6 inches of rain which is the main threat of this storm. I have to work in the morning and I'm hoping that if anything severe  moves in it will be in the afternoon.

Its gonna get wet. Record breaking tornadoes kills legendary storm chasers .

Moisture is moving in, and there is low pressure sitting in the gulf.
We are expecting up to five inches of rain by Saturday. Severe weather is possible Thursday. Hopefully after I get off work.
Friday night veteran storm chasers , Tim Samaras and Carl young, and Paul Samaras  were killed in the May 31st El Rino  Tornado. A record breaking 2.6 miles wide with winds at a mind blowing 297 mph. Danm that is a monster.
My prayers go out to their family's.

Sky Watch

This photo was shot in May 2012 on my way home from work. I love cumulus!!

Cumulus clouds are a type of low-level cloud that can have noticeable vertical development and clearly defined edges. Cumulo- means "heap" in Latin.[1] They are often described as "puffy" or "cotton-like" in appearance, and are generally less than 6,500 feet (2,000 m) in altitude, unless they are of the vertical cumulus congestus form. Cumulus clouds may appear alone, in lines, or in clusters. Cumulus clouds are often precursors of other types of clouds, such as cumulonimbus, when influenced by weather factors such as instability, moisture, and temperature gradient. Cumulus clouds are part of the larger category of cumuliform clouds, which include stratocumulus cloudscumulonimbus cloudscirrocumulus clouds, and altocumulus clouds.[2]

Catching up

You know it is so hard to manage time, I really thought i could keep up with my blog even if was just to post a photo a day or even a week. I do admit one of my faults is Facebook, I tend to spend my free moments there reading about other peoples life. Why? I don't know it's kinda like watching T.V. taking a step away from my own reality, I guess. But.....
I am here now to try again, I downloaded the Blogger app to my phone so maybe that will make it easier.

Halloween has come and gone the air is cooler and Barack Obama has been re-elected for another term.
A super storm named Sandy hit the east coast with a fury no one has seen in a hundred years, Super storm Sandy reached 900 miles wide, carried winds speeds of more than 90 mph, caused billions of dollars in damage and claimed at least 100 lives. A storm that will be talked about for generations yet to come and not only that but they were hit again last night with a nor'easter. Weather sure has been weird the last few years, every year we breaking records for something. I know hurricane Sandy will go down in record books.

I started a new job in August, I am finally out of that damn factory!! Yea!!! I am severing at Cracker Barrel at nights. Which is very different from the last four years having nights and weekends off. I don't get to spend anytime with friends but I am making more money and I am working less hours and since my son changed schools I am able to take him to the boss stop in the morning and I am there when he gets home. I just don't get to have a social life a sacrifice I have to make.

Well this entry is gonna come to a close, I am gonna leave you with a few links and some Pictures from Halloween.
If you want to add me to your Facebook friends I have thousands of pictures in my photo albums just click on this link and leave a message on the invite- saw you on blogger-

Picture a day

A pretty sunrise today. I wish I would have caught it about a half hour before the sky was on fire. Unfortunately I was driving to work at that time.
The waters off congress are still high only receding a little bit. Which totally blows because it takes me an extra ten minutes to get to work.

Picture a day

This picture is a drainage Ditch on steroids. I'm joking of course. :)
The Anclote river swelled over its banks today and crested at 25.7 feet. It closed down a major evacuation route,SR 54 @ seven springs. A lot of neighborhoods are underwater right now.
It makes you wonder what would happen if a hurricane hit us.

Right now we are experiencing
