Try to cut the Meteorologists some slack

But then again….

The coverage by the weather channels for Matthew were less than timely. I didn't have television, and was relying on the internet.

Ten or so years ago while towing, I was able to dodge a hurricane. The coverage seem to be a lot better then.

All due respect!! But, thank you for your input.
um....do your kiddies and grandkiddies not have a cell phone? If so, wouldn't it be better to call them direct?

Aside from that, I tend to believe in the saying, no news is good news.

Well, that's good because some people block or don't answer calls from their mother/mother-in-law. They create their own "stormy weather."

No In-law action here! LOL! My granddaughters and their spouses all have really close relationship with me and my daughter, Deb. Since their Mom, my daughter, Lynn died when they were little ones....we have served as sort of surrogates in her stead. I would do anything for them! (And they know this.) I promised Lynn I would try to care for them as she would , if she could remain.

My main concern in regard to the predicted storm, was that the girls...33 and 37, are/were unfamiliar with that type of weather patterns. In future, I'm sure they will be more prepared. As I said, I plan on ordering some cases of dehydrated prep food and LED lanterns, etc., and have shipped to them.

That is so tragic; the death of your daughter and their mother. I think we understand your concern a little better now. Tomorrow is never promised. You have had to endure that in the worst way possible.

Please take care. Be good to yourself too.

Thank you, F@N. Lynn died of breast cancer when Melissa was 11 and Crystal was 6, (1990). Then my son and youngest daughter were killed in an auto accident in 2000. (Drunk driver)! (No orphaned children from those two.) There are no guarantees in life. We have learned that in the harshest way possible. My remaining child, Deb, shares my home, and for her, I am very grateful. Yes, I am very concerned for my grandchildren....with good reason...always will be! I make no apology for that!

I see on weather reports that the PNW coast is experiencing some normal fall/winter weather. I just wish the jet stream would deviate toward our direction, as our fall has been unseasonably warm and dry....too dry. As it is, jet stream goes to north, then to eastern regions, taking wet and cool temps there, instead. It has been predicted that we will likely not see our usual cold, snowy winter here. Too bad. I enjoy the snow...from inside looking out. LOL!

Weather

I would say it's beyond normal lol. I'm on the very south end of the Oregon Coast. I've heard anywhere from 20-26 inches for October. That's way beyond normal for us but that's how it goes. The Farmer's Almanac forecast for us was wetter than usual for October and November and drier than usual in December and January. So far they've gotten it right. The local crab fishermen would be very happy for a dry December and January.
