All you CR.net members in the NE and our CR.net headquarters command staff need to keep a weather eye out for Bill. While you all appear to be on the far western fringe of NOAAs predicted track, you can never tell. It is still expected to remain a hurricane even while that far north. It looks like parts of Canada may take a direct hit.

Bill is a catagory four as of Wednesday morning and expected to go to cat five in near future. It should weaken when it hits cooler water off New England, but could still be quite strong. Definitely keep an eye on this one if you are in New England or Canadian Maritimes.

Here on Georgia's coast we will experience larger than normal swells reaching the barrier islands. There will be strong rip currents at the beaches. I will be fishing but I will not venture offshore. I will be "fishing inside". This means I will be fishing the waterways behind the barrier islands.

TheCarolinaScotsman;

If Bill makes it to the Maritimes, The Bluenosers, Herring Chockers and Newfies will call it a stiff breeze accompanied by a heavy mist.

Maybe less weakening than usual -- we have had some pretty hot and muggy doldrums the last week or more in the northeast, and the water on the shelf at least is warmer than normal. Hoping a strong storm will take all that out with it. Going down to the boardwalk at Brighton Saturday to howl at the surf. yes.gif

We have plans to make our way to the coast this weekend, as long as it is safe, to capture some video of the storm waves and wind. We'll post the videos here as soon as we are back.

My thoughts are of the 1938 Hurricane where winds on top of Blue Hill in Canton (next town over and home to the Irish Heritage Center) reached 170 MPH.

Hoping that the forcasts are right and the storm will curve out to sea. Even if it was a direct hit, as long as the storm is not moving fast, it should weaken by the time it hits.

The problem with the 1938 storm was that it was moving north at about 65 MPH so it did not lose any of its power. When it hit I think it was a CAT 3 or 4. It is the 6th most costly hurricane on record right after Andrew.

The sad thing about the 1938 storm is people along the coast did not even know a Hurriance was coming. Eye witness reports told of a fog bank coming in fast, but it was a wall of water. Needless to say if a storm of this magnitude hit the NorthEast it would probably be the most costliest storm ever given how much has been built up around here since 1938.

Maybe if we get enough people along the shore and we all took a deep breath and blew we can get Bill to stay far away from us! smile.gif

We will monitor the situation and if there is a chance it might be coming to our area you can bet that we will be preparing our portable backup unit with the latest version of Celtic Radio (500GB).

When ever I hear about or get caught in a fierce storm I can't help but remember a scene from a movie. I don't remember the name of it but there is a scene where John Cassavettes is in a robe standing on a balcony overlooking the sea and reminiscent of "The Tempest" is conjouring up the storm. If one is going to venture out into the storm never underestimate the power and fury that can be unleashed by Nature.

Stay safe! You all are in our thoughts and prayers. May the Lord protect and keep all our coastal families and Maritime families safe from harm. Watch over our fishermen and bring them home into safe harbour.

smile.gif Like the hippies at Woodstock who started chanting "No Rain!" when the thunder started, right after Joe Cocker finished singing "I get by with a little help from my friends. . . "?

If we'd all taken a deep breath first, wouldn't that have pulled Bill in even faster? unsure.gif

I don't know if anyone pays that much attention to the Farmer's Almanac anymore, but they have been pretty accurate. They have a "relatively high hurricane potential for Sept. 9 - 10. I don't like hurricanes that develop in September. Especially the one coming off Africa right now. They are not good for Florida. sad.gif

flora;

A few years ago an aquaintance of mine ( more money than brains) bought a beautiful 35 foot Elite sailboat and asked me to take it to Florida for him. This gentleman was not a sailor and actually got seasick once he lost sight of land. Anyway we met to discuss the trip and he informed me that he would like to leave in early Sept.. I said OK. well take her down the Inland Water Way. His reply was No, no I want to go offshore down the east coast and around Florida. I told him no way was I taking a 35 foot boat with inexperienced crew offshore down the east coast in Hurricane season. We ended up having quite a disagreement and I finally just got up and walked away. Amongst my fellow sailors up here I am considered a bit nuts as I enjoy rough weather sailing but as I say that's different because it only happens if I get caught in a storm I do not go looking for them and I usually had experienced people with me. Well a storm is a storm and a Hurricane is "I want my Mommie" time only Mommie can't really help you.

I was out on Lake Erie once in a 26 foot (I think) walleye boat with 'swells" of 9 feet. I suspect they were greater than that. I was not afraid as we had no storm as such, just wind pushing waves across sand bars, but I found that standing on deck was comparable to running a marathon. My old pump was pushed to the limit. The youngsters on the boat were all hanging over the side "chumming" the water! laugh.gif

Slāinte,
