The End of Bad Weather?

video

I sincerely hope this is the end of the bad weather; and I assume there's a few who are tired of looking at dead trees, home, and car damage in the neighborhood. I shot the above video with a small camera. It's a poor quality but it shows the last barrage of wind and rain. I shot it through the screened porch on the front of the house. 


The "heat" related weather should be ending now that our temperatures have dropped out of the triple digits in the state. Yesterday, I needed to "jump start" my old car with my radio battery and one of the fellows at the parts store said he had been without power for 10 days now


It's difficult to imagine the stress some of those in the state have been through the last few weeks. 








Ever since the storm, there's be an annoying problem with the "blog". It seems my text appears highlighted in "white". Hence the slight change in the background color of the text. Thank goodness I've been able to work around it. 


Yesterday, I heard a Croatian station on 20 meters but couldn't work him. I'm looking forward to the next NAQCC sprint on the 18th of this month. It will be nice to spend some quality time on the air again.

Hi John, well the video says it all. Unbelievable. I can understand people getting tired of it all. I hope the weather will soon improve to real nice summer weather. 73 Paul

Hi John. AS I mentioned in Paul's blog, still dry, dry here in central NYS. The only green is in the trees...and weeds. The grass has gone yellow. Pretty awful.

Hello Paul and Dick,

I fear this is the beginning of a permanent climate change?

At least for now, we're in the clear for the thunderstorms. It's drought we're going to be faced with now.

Hello Paul,

The video shows a wind burst of 60 MPH. The beginning storm brought 78 MPH winds. It's been the worst I can ever remember.
