It's the season.

We are also keeping an eye on what's brewing out in the Atlantic.

"7" has potential.

I have a look here first https://www.wunderground.com/hurricane/

TD7 thankfully looks like it will go well North.

We still have a long way to go. After September one and start to breathe a 'little' easier, but not much.

I use NOAA products. Especially those from The National Hurricane Center.

I find their "forecast discussions" and " warnings cone & tracks" to be the most helpful.

"7" is now a named storm--- Gaston, and the latest forcast discussion says that it has the potential to become a major Hurricane.

There is some controversy here in Richmond over not retiring the name Gaston from the list of storms. The memories of that day are still very fresh for surviving family members of the 9 lost soles. Some of the storms damage is still visible over ten years later.

Top Five Worst Hurricanes in Central Virginia History

#4 Hurricane Gaston 2004
Temporarily stalling over the Richmond metro area, Gaston dumped between 10-12 inches of rain in numerous spots as a tropical storm. Shockoe Bottom was completely swallowed up when the city's drainage system became overwhelmed by the rain. All told, Gaston caused $130 million in damage and killed 9 people.

I thought that name sounded familiar.

Got a bit(:ycool:) of rain here.
Winds 35mph. Gotta go and look at the boat.

Hopefully will have passed us by 3pm.

It looks like it is heading towards Florida.

I hope it does not strengthen.

Looks like the Gulf is going to get hammered, and the whole eastern seaboard could get scuffed up by Hermine.
