Good afternoon bloggers,
We left London, England this morning, and now we are in Switzerland. I felt London was quite fascinating. It’s hard to put my finger on it at the moment, as the people seemed more in shape and not too rushed. There were a few language gaps from English to American English such as when we were in an Uber yesterday and after we said it was our first time in London, he says, “How did you find it?”. I don’t think he meant how did you find it on the map, but how is London so far? The World Weather Expo begins Wednesday. More on that later in the week.
20 Years Ago
My brother Scott just transferred the video he took on May 31, 1999, also a rather active tornado season. I hadn’t seen this in a while. Watch near the end when he tries to get me to stop. I wish I would have, but the Rear Flank Downdraft (RFD) was blasting across the field and I just kept going and going and going:
This was near Sitka, KS and it became an EF-3 and was mostly over open fields of southwest KS with very little damage reported.
The next two weeks will become increasingly wet again. The rivers, streams, lakes, and reservoirs are full and can not take much more. As many of you know, using the LRC, Weather2020 predicted this would happen months ago. The Corps of Engineers would be much better prepared if the LRC was being utilized as a prediction tool. One of these days, my vision for the LRC will come through.
Here is the outlook for the next 10 days:
I have not had time to truly analyze the pattern. I will do so later and we can discuss in the blog comments. Thank you for sharing in this weather experience. And, what do you think of the tornado from 20 years ago? Who is with me and moving away from it for as long as I did, and who would have gotten out and up close and personal with it?
