Glad to hear you are just getting brushed by TS Debby but sorry to hear that it is so nasty closer to the coast. It's hard to know what to expect here, although we do have tropical storm warnings from the NHC. I sure hope that Debby gets a move on and gets out of your area.

Right now, still hot-hot-hot and sunny...

We are to the west of Tampa and we have been getting drenched since last night. Glad to be living on the second floor.

We have our welcome mats out for Debby... hope that will help her decide to pay us a visit.

Things have really gotten bad in central Florida area. I spoke too soon when I told W2R we were just getting a needed rain and some wind. It's gotten worse since I posted that. The storm has intensified and numerous tornados have been reported with one death reported in Lake Placid which is more toward the center of the state.
St. Pete, Clearwater and points north are getting hammered by winds and rain.

Take care, and stay safe, JOHNNIE36 and our other Floridians. I just hope the storm moves away from you before any more deaths or damage result.

Thanks W2R. Been watching the local station and haven't heard lately about the projected path Debby could take. It could still turn east and track over the top of the Florida pennisula. Just reported an official 6.3" of rain in Tampa. More so in some areas. All the locals can now stop bitching about how dry it's been. Zip it!

That's a lot of rain! Hope your apartment is not in danger of flooding.

We are on the second (top) floor so no chance of flooding. Haven't see any roof leaks so all is well for now. Still raining cats and dogs.

I shouldn't have said that. I miss my cat.

The lights keep blinking every once in awhile. Don't like that.

And now a word from the Southwest. Looks like the monsoon may start a little early this year. I can hear some boomers in the back yard.

Right now, at 4:30 PM, it's 101 F with blazing sun and 44% humidity here. I was amazed at how fast my energy drained away while just walking between the car and the gym.

Hot, hot, hot.... but at least we don't have a tropical storm like our Floridians.

The storm is stalled off the coast so it keeps dumping incredible amounts of water . Lots of local flooding and strong winds . I have stayed inside cleaning closets and thanks to powerplay I have the world's cleanest oven !

105F, but is it dry heat?

107F where yours truly is, but 15% humidity, with dew point of 47F. Dry enough for anybody?

Still, after 9AM, I ain't goin' outside. Been told these rays cause cancer. AC set at 78F.

Haven't tried to get in the pool yet this year, while I have been spending all that time cleaning it (dust storm!), and the money for chlorine.

PS. I should be up where it is cooler, a lot cooler, but the emergency at home that made me cut short the RV trip also keeps me in town for a little longer. If I disappear again for a while, y'all know what happens to me. I will be in places where I am incommunicado (like no Internet!).

I think it hit 106F here today! 25% humidity.

Tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter!

I smoked some salmon outside anyway.

It has been in the 70's and clear for the last few days because of a low over No CA & Oregon. I'm enjoying it while I can because I just know that the 100's are coming back. I hope & pray that we don't have wildfires this year around here. I really feel for those people in CO...and for those in the SE. You are made of stronger stuff than me...that heat and humidity would do me in! Stay safe back there!
