This would be an excellent time for his maximum eminence to fly into the area and get ready to give a few speeches.

We HAVE to drive home from Louisville to the Detroit area this evening. We can’t leave until after 5. At least I have new tires on the car.

Yetch, that means the AF one bus will be flying over head today here on its way to Miami...screws up the landing paterns as his maximum eminence needs a wide birth. I used to think it was a security screen but lately I believe it is one to keep the stench from affecting other aircraft nearby.

They’re saying that the bad weather could end up seriously affecting the US Open golf championship just outside Philadelphia. There is real fear that the course management at the Merion Golf Club may not be able to keep the course dry right through the end of the week.

Initially a Particularly Dangerous Situation Tornado watch - could be quite a few EF3-EF5 tornados from Iowa through Northern Illinois. Later they could congeal into a Derecho further East (though such a Derecho is very unlikely to make it as far east as the one last year)

It will knock down the stimp meter. If they keep it in the fairway, prepare for some high scores.

I would point out that this weather system was the last rain we received in Central Indiana for the next three months.

This year’s weather pattern is much different. We aren’t getting the heat, and we are getting more and regular precipitation.

I’ll take a nice thunderstorm over a drought any day.

Last year's dereco in June was sure one heck of a ride, yes, you need the rain, but the damage it leaves is not wanted.

Sitting here in a pop up motorcycle camper in the Amanas, we have gusty winds that have diminished somewhat over the last hour.
Its still not great, but I think it will settle down enough for me to open the windows soon.
