You know, I was just thinking about the weather and realized I hadn't heard anything about Ole' Muddyboots lately . You definitely have a black cloud over your head. LOL ! Which threat level were you under .

You must have done something that has ****ed off Mother Nature.

Was going to go salmon fishing on Lake Michigan tomorrow with buddy but decided to postpone....offered to put seatbelts in boat but prob not effective.

Forecast:
THURSDAY Northwest winds 15 to 25 kt becoming north to 30 kt. Waves 3 to 5 ft building to 4 to 7 ft occasionally to 9 ft.

Edmund Fitzgerald nightmares! My dad trained somewhere in those lakes for the Navy (destroyer class). I'd feel a "bit" safer on that....

So what the heck is a derecho storm? Winds up to 100mph? Worse year in long time on how many times we have been in basement.

What is a derecho storm 2020?


2020 supplied us with at least three large derecho events. What is a derecho? Per the Storm Prediction Center, “A derecho is a widespread, long-lived wind storm. Derechos are associated with bands of rapidly moving showers or thunderstorms variously known as bow echoes, squall lines, or quasi-linear convective systems.Jan 8, 2021
