13 to 2 and a big one

Hurricane Marie makes the 13th named storm in the Eastern Pacific this year while the Atlantic has had only 2 so far.  It does look like Invest 96L near Cuba has a chance to be storm number 3.

Marie is closer than any storm in the last 2 months as they have been forming well off shore and head almost directly west.  It is totally overcast here right now and from the radar we may get some rain from the outer bands. Most all all our rain has come from convection current activity where moisture blows in from the ocean or up the coast a little and runs into the mountains. It hasn't been the late afternoon Tropical rains like Hawaii .... but has been anytime of day or night with lots of thunder and lightning.

The following day - Sunday
Catagory 4 going to a Cat 5 tonight
Glad she didn't come near us

I was happy to see her take a sharp left turn.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
