The NorthEast Is Expecting  A Visitor Named Henri

 

The Western Hemisphere is into it's storm season and it will last until late September. Normally they develop in the Lower Atlantic and work their way north as tropical storms that eventually fizzle out.

 

That's not the case with this storm which has been upgraded to a category 1 Hurricane with winds expected to be in excess of 80 mph.

As the storm makes it's way up the East coast, the latest track shows it making landfall off of Long Island near Fire Island and then crossing Long Island Sound and coming into Connecticut through New Haven Harbor.

 

We will see rain from early morning Sunday to late morning Monday.  Before it's over the utility companies are expecting more than 50% of the state to be without power with no idea when all will be completely restored.  

 

For those of us on private wells, storing water for drinking is important as well as having some ready for use in flushing.

 

It's going to be a no work Sunday and if the power goes out I will definitely finish the book I am reading.

Hello Ed: some visitors are more welcome than others.  Good riddance to Henri.   May his stay be brief and uneventful.

Good morning, Ed... I've got friends in Connecticut and I know they've been making preparations, as well. Hopefully, there won't be a bad landfall. Stay safe. I'll be thinking of you.

Wendy Rulnick   Thank you  During the night the storm veered into an eastern track so the brunt of the force will hit the Eastern end of the state and we are more western

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist   The storm was downgraded early in the morning so the winds should be less but we are still expected to see over 8" of rain

Kathy Streib  As the state is so heavily treed, the power companies are projecting as many as 67% of the households will lose power and the worst of it could be off for 3 weeks

Ed looks like most of the state is lucking out.  I was ready for the worst, but am VERY HAPPY that so far it is far better than I could have hopped for.

I have a generator ready to go if needed, so if you need a drink of water, or the need to flush, you are welcome to stop by ☺️☺️☺️
