Cold is coming... 1994 style

It is extremely cold right now.. the last time I remember cold this bad was in 1994 when I was 14 years old. I recall stories about rivers suddenly freezing and people suffering. That is back when CNN actually had news on ..
Nonetheless, it’s 2014 and 20 years since that cold snap. But looking at this map you see, it may soon get pretty close to what was experience two decades back. 
The image is from WeatherBELL’s Ryan Maue.. .. the red color reflects where all weather models are in agreement: It will be below 32 degrees. And in some cases much below 32.. 
My local forecast actually calls for a high on Monday of 30 some degrees—and the temperature will fall at night to negative 2. That is a 30+ drop in temperatures in just a few hours, and a flash freeze—something that the Midwest is going to experience this weekend as their temperatures go well below 0. 
And get this: Hawaii’s high elevations are going to be under the freezing mark, too. 
at this point, it’s fair to say that the entire United States from North to South and Alaska and Hawaii included—all 50 states—will be in a deep freeze by next week.
That is astounding. Amazing.
And freaking freezing.

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
