    Ha! About the only thing they (meteorologists) have gotten right the last several years was the death ridge/hell summers we’ve had with no rain. Which is pretty easy to predict when there’s a massive high pressure parked over us for months at a time.

    Poll- would you rather have no power when it’s 105F or no power when it’s 5F?

    Florida just got out of this multi-month long dry spells. The last 6 weeks have been very hot. Over night it turned into hurricane season with powerful storms.

    I am not sure if we will get big powerful storms but instead continuous tropical depressions.

    That looks like the neighborhood the street musician Dovydas used to perform in.

    Impact of May 16 2024 derecho in Houston:

    https://communityimpact.com/houston...-recovering-from-rare-destructive-wind-storm/

    According to a preliminary report by AccuWeather, the storm is estimated to have caused $5 billion-$7 billion in total economic impact with many residents and business owners in Harris County experiencing property damage.

    CenterPoint Energy estimates that nearly 1 million residents also lost power during the storm. The utility company had to replace 2,000 electric poles, 700 transformers and 800 miles of electrical wires to restore energy, a process that took roughly 7-8 days.

    “The combination of the strong, straight-line winds, and all the rain that happened leading up to this event, made this storm very different from the typical summertime thunderstorms we often see,” said Jason Ryan, executive vice president for regulatory services and government affairs for CenterPoint Energy. “A lot of the damage to our infrastructure was from trees falling into power lines, and it wasn’t just limbs, but entire four-story trees being uprooted.”
    • 110 mph winds recorded
    • About 1M residents lost power
    • 800+ miles of electrical wires replaced
    • $5B-$7B potential economic impact
    • $90.8 M+ given in federal funding aid, including individual assistance for incident period starting April 26, as of June 5

    Got hit by that northern blob on the radar. I had a show and when I got back home around 1 AM my street was like a river.
