Vy brother in law is high and dry but said "red alerts'" are throughout the area and floods everywhere continuing.
Used to frequent up that way; northern side of the Allegheny rolls through some pretty lowland territory. Place called Eldred gets it good every time it rises high.
Tons of the stuff and just enough sun to make the grass grow about 2" per day .. oy vey
Yikes > seein’ that pic WILL make me shutup about the grass !
This is throughout central Pa as well....Columbia and other counties hit hard as well....but this is unusual for my Hometown area...all roads in and out are unpassible.
While I was talking with family member ‘there’ another red alert came through....they’ve opened schools etc for people who can’t get out or up to higher grounds. It’s really quite bad.
Am sending good/hopeful thoughts their way.
West Branch of the Susquehanna hasn’t gotten loose here yet, but it’s been close a couple times.
Thing is, it’s not even hurricane season yet, but these rain bands keep moving south to north (right over top of us) for weeks now as though it was.
Flooding consumes central Schuylkill County, Pa. - 08/13/2018
Oh no! Severe flooding in Tremont, PA. August 13, 2018.
Dont forget the counter-clockwise rotation, too, just enough to bring in some of that awesome sea water...
Oh goodie !
I remember a few years ago a similar situation happened in Tunkhannock in Wyoming County...the Susquehanna was flowing right below the big bridge in town - a good 20’ higher than usual. Prayer up, FRiend.
Holy crap, that’s something.
Hope all stay safe..keep us posted.
I’m in that area, and I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s been raining ALL freaking summer, EVERYTHING around here looks like a swamp.... the moss is bright green and there’s mold on all the trees and it’s just been pouring rain again today all day.
Prayers up, I just watched the footage on the weather channel. Looks hellacious.
Things to come
Not that it matters one way or another what I believe or think; but I do believe that we are already several years in to another anniversary of a repetitive event which about 1500 BC or about 3600 years ago, give or take, amongst many other things triggered the (TEN PLAGUES) as well as the explosion of Thera, located within the Archipelago of Santorini and at the same time rearranged the Mediterranean landscape permanently. Indirectly and in a roundabout way, turning days in to night for some time, and providing the final straw, scaring the Egyptian ruler at the time, most likely Thutmose III not only giving him an Excedrin headache but also convincing him that it would be a good idea to release the Israelites from bondage. This event entered the annals of history as the EXODUS.
Along here it may be of interest to note that the TEN PLAGUES were not events just made to order for good old Moses, as similar events; of course of somewhat different nature bedeviled the ancient Chinese as well. What became evident by searching some of the ancient records within the same timeframe, what clearly points out that what was taking place at the time was not just localized, but affected the whole planet. The interesting part is that the Jews being pretty bright by nature, especially one in particular, MOSES, utilized these events to threaten the Egyptian ruler with and by doing so eventually gained the release of all the Israelis from bondage.
Going back in history using the same time span or multiples of 3600 we arrive at another historic event, which was predictable yet unavoidable and once again it entered the annals of history as the DELUGE. In other words these events seem to have a common denominator or trigger and once again it seems we are running into another one and probably are already one third into it causing all kinds of strange weather patterns along with what humans refer to as Global warming etc. but the finale is yet to come.
I have a feeling that the Vatican may be thinking along similar lines and in order to get ahead of the proverbial curve, a while back built a fairly sophisticated observatory on Mount Graham in Arizona. Actually about 25 years ago when I found out about this project it made me wonder as to what are they really looking for? And as I looked into this subject a little closer, much to my surprise, many interesting things turned up.
To anyone who never has looked into this subject, given it much thought or let religious believes get in their way, all this may sound like some crackpot idea. But whatever has been taking place so far in regards unusual weather patterns, more frequent earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, flooding, draughts as well as unusual levels of heat, producing hard to control fires as well as seasons running into one another etc. speaks pretty well for this repetitive event. There are plenty of records of all this taking place currently on our planet, all it takes is for a person to look for it, as all this seems to be validating this reoccurring event. On top of it another event which maybe on the horizon, what may add to the natural calamities, runs concurrent with the above and is another GRAND SOLAR MINIMUM. But it would take too much to go into it here. But details about it may be found on the internet.
All I can say and emphasize is that I wish to be wrong as some of these events may turn out to be quite destructive as some of them already have been. Unfortunately there is not much we can do about it, just prepare best possible, hope for the best and try to stay out of harms way. The question remains, what we are witnessing now here and there around our planet, will these events become even more frequent, severe and wide spread? Only time will tell.
Yup, that about sums it up.
If it was snow, we’d have worn out a shovel or two by now.
Given the news pics from around here I’ve no call to be whining, but it IS gettin’ a tad tiresome.
Eldred PA. is 5 miles south of me, I believe they are talking further east.
If we do get a tropical storm or remnants of hurricane running up the coast, there could be some incredible flooding in these parts.
