Last year on Christmas I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt. Ridiculous.

Yep same here. It's a total buzz kill. I just don't have it in me to associate Christmas with shorts, t-shirts, A/C blowing and sweating while cooking inside.

Pretty quiet hurricane season overall but all it takes is one good storm to be a memorable season.

Crazy to see all the rain and storms in the west side of Ian. The NE quadrant is just about void of any rain.

Yes - Very unusual. I noticed the Gov. declared victory before the backside leveled the pimp hand.

Never mess with mother nature.

Cantore was absolutely exhausted from half a day in the eyewall. I feel badly for the Ft. Myers area, but fortunately Ian did not strike a more heavily populated area - Tampa/St. Pete/Sarasota or Miami-Dade.

It's like half a hurricane on radar. There is absolutely nothing east, southeast, our south of the circulation.

Ian is a storm that will be studied for a long time. Since this morning, this cyclone has been slowly transitioning to a sub-tropical cyclone. It started to ingest dry air and you saw the uncharacteristically updrafts and downdrafts with intense lightning along with the Hurricane Hunters and their hail reports (and coffee spills). That is not typical for the incredible number of missions they have completed. Ian has been attached to a frontal trough with outflow and moisture being stripped to the NE. This is not your stand-alone, true tropical cyclone. For me, all the lightning and hail signaled a storm that was giving a very violent 'last gasp' - but would then start to fall part quickly after landfall and the dry air started to wrap around. That seems to be happening now - another 'half hurricane' - but in Florida. I look forward to the lessons that will be learned from Ian.

I wonder if Hurricane Ian will be upgraded to Category 5.
