Long distance Weather Wizards
I do not trust them for long term (yearly forecasts) we get them every New Year. I wish I could remember the ‘Hurricane’ forecasts and temp forecasts, but if I record them I forget them. I had about just as soon trust the Japanese calendar.
I do remember one year very well. We had bought a place on Lake Dora, Tavares, Florida. We really did like it, but Home owners association did not allow people on the water to erect a hoist to keep their boat out of the water in bad weather. Their reasoning was that you would block someone’s view who was not on the water, so the boat took a beating in bad weather. Of course the boat was taken out of the water for hurricanes.
That year we had three hurricanes cross the state. The GOVERNMENT WEATHER WIZARDS declared from now own, the air currents have changed so, that future hurricanes will cross the state. That year we had minor damage from the three, but some neighbors lost roofs.
So we decided to sell and did. That was about eleven years ago. None have followed that pattern again. Somehow it is hard to believe the EXPERTS at times.
I had just as soon trust the Farmer’s almanac, but I don’t read that either.
Y’all try to be good. BTW we are home. This little block house has survived a lot of hurricanes, so we probably won’t worry too much about it.
No, we are not moving in yet. We have another vacation planned in the near future, no need to unpack the coach. LOL. Shucks life is good!
