About this blog

Stuff I would, up until now, post on FB for my friends and such. In here, I am very Central PA - "centric", but not entirely.

Oh, it's drying time again....

And we sure hope it has no notion of (ever) leaving (though we know that nothing is forever).  The old pattern is dead (for now) and may it remain in the dust bin of history (for at least a while). Let's let NWS speak to just how.  Great news for local hot spots that rely on less than soaked conditions (e.g. - golf course, ice cream vendors, local fundraiser fairs).  I'm going to keep this entry short - not even look into the next pattern change (not that it will be bad) just

Obviously, we've been stuck in a rut, a muddy rut at that - nay, a dangerously muddy rut.

The pattern is the pattern, until it's not

Well folks, it's no secret that we've been uber soaked since sometime in early July. With upper level low pressure systems cutting off to our west (pumping southerly flow from the Gulf of Mexico region) bumping up against High Pressure in the Atlantic (pumping warm moisture laden air off the ocean, also from the south - southeast, there has been no shortage of moisture, even on dry days (due to high humidity values).  As if, sometimes, the case - the pattern of atmospheric waves and wave br
