Meteorological Fall Banter Thread

Recommended Posts

Took a drive up Old Mine Road yesterday north of the Delaware Water Gap. A pretty drive and they feds have filled in the pot holes through the recreation area. Not so in the State Forest. I even got about one-third of a mile up a trail. The ground was a tad wet and the log steps were hard on the knees on the way down. But I am glad for the short hike.

I am fortunate to have a good pilot friend who takes me flying when weekend schedules and weather allows. Flying through the Water Gap is spectacular. No good photos that I can share here but here is a fourteen minute video that captures some of beauty of the Water Gap from the air. You can get an idea of how beautiful this area is from the air in the first couple of minutes.

Yup....Between the record heat and humidity and now this stretch of cloudy and wet weather (potentially getting worse if FLO decides to bring her remnants up this way) Sept. is quickly going down the toilet. It's a shame.

Starting to think my flight from Charlotte to ABE at 1445 on Friday might need to be adjusted a bit...

Awesome video.  We stayed at a B&B in Saylorsburg where the host was a private pilot with a grass runway.  He took us up over the water gap and through Stroudsburg, it is indeed a beautiful sight.  I remember (fitting for this week) that the rivers were swollen and brown because of heavy rainfall that year.

Something interesting that happened was that there were two earthquakes here in Berks County overnight, one a 1.7 near Nolde Forest and one a 1.8 or 1.9 near Shillington.

Will we ever shake this humidity?     This is getting pretty ridiculous with the uninterrupted sogginess for weeks on end.

Doesn't look like any relief if the next 5-7 days atleast. We'll have this soupy airmass til Flo is gone from the US (middle of next week) at the earliest.

Pretty close to what my neighbor is thinking. Except he uses the leaf blower.
