From this point forward my journal is going to be friends and private only. If you would like to read any of my usually boring or macabre entries please let me know. I don't promise to entertain or be very sociable, but I will try. I've met some wonderful peeps on/thru LJ so I am open-minded to openly sharing my thoughts & life, just going more cautiously now. Thanks!

With the number of tornado reports for the period Sat afternoon through Monday morning now approaching 100, it is worth pointing out that while this is certainly one of the greatest November outbreaks on record, tornado outbreaks during Autumn are far from a rarity. In fact, a second tornado-maxima occurs during the season.

As is the case during Spring, cold and drier air from the north begins clashing again with the warmer, moist air from the Gulf. Sometimes, as was the case this past weekend, a particularly strong jet stream also enhances thunderstorm activity during various times of the year. The current El Nino is being fingered out for a possible reason why the jet stream across the country was so powerful this past week. (Recall the hurricane force winds in California Thursday & Friday).

Currently there are roughly three dozen confirmed fatalities and many people are still missing and concern is rising that at least some of them may not be found alive. To illustrate, with clarion, the impact of this past weekend's explosion of nature's fury, consider that the oft-referred to super-outbreak of May 3, 1999, claimed forty-six lives.

Off the charts Tornado, Wind & Hail outlooks next two or three days in eastern mid-west and mid-atlantic regions. This is a particularly dangerous set-up.

Solar wind gusts have triggered auroras off and on since Oct. 23rd.  There could be even more geomagnetic activity this weekend if a coronal mass ejection (CME) sweeps past our planet as expected. The CME billowed away from the Sun on Oct. 25th not long after a spectacular prominence
erupted--the movies at are a must-see!

Sky watchers should be alert for Northern Lights after nightfall on Saturday and Sunday.

On a drearier note, abundant moisture from the decaying Tropical Depression ("depression," I just *cough* Isadore that word) is making it's way in here this morning and it's like waking up in Seattle! Damp, cold and gray. Yummy ;)

On Tuesday, Sept. 3rd, with no warning, the interplanetary magnetic field near Earth turned south and triggered a G2-class geomagnetic storm. Canadians, northern Europeans, and some sky watchers in northern US states saw vivid green auroras for more than 9 hours on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, Sept. 4th.

From an E-mail I received earlier today...

According to studies, your sexual identity is revealed by the first letter
of your FIRST name... what do you think? (Those of you with names that start
with "N" will probably wish it started with "K"!)
*******S fits me so well. *wicked grin* Sassy*****

Hmmm.. About me???
L- You are very romantic, idealistic, and somehow you believe that to love
means to suffer. You wind up serving your mate or attracting people who have
unusual troubles. You see yourself as your lover's savior. You are sincere,
passionate, lustful, and dreamy. You can't help falling in love. You
fantasize and get turned on by movies and magazines. You do not tell others
of this secret life, nor of your sexual fantasies.

And now you?

You are 35% geek
You are a geek liaison, which means you go both ways. You can hang out with normal people or you can hang out with geeks which means you often have geeks as friends and/or have a job where you have to mediate between geeks and normal people. This is an important role and one of which you should be proud. In fact, you can make a good deal of money as a translator.

Normal: Tell our geek we need him to work this weekend.

You [to Geek]: We need more than that, Scotty. You'll have to stay until you can squeeze more outta them engines!

Geek [to You]: I'm givin' her all she's got, Captain, but we need more dilithium crystals!

You [to Normal]: He wants to know if he gets overtime.

Funny, my High School guidance counselor never told me about this. ;)
