Yeah, now it looks like most of the state is going to get something. We could use some rain, it was already starting to dry up.

I think "disaster" might be a little extreme. At any rate, most storms seem to die out anyway. It's like waiting for the big snow storm being forecast, then it flurries.

Thank you, you proved my point. I had quoted your storm predictions in SWCt. You were hyping disaster in Fairfield County, such as "Highest chance of severe would be Fairfield county.", and "MERRIT WILL BE A MESS AFTER 6PM FROM STORM ALONE. Use alternate route or wait it out. You have till 6pm." But the storms were worse in northern Ct., which was why I said "disaster" was a little extreme. I think you just get a little over-zealous in your predictions sometimes.

Maybe because he lives there he just simply has an unintended bias to FFC the way I sometimes overdo using Central Park on here.....he means well.

I guess I have to explain... No problem...


When you see this coming towards SWCT during rush hour... Pinks and Reds are torrential rain and wind.



And you know the storms have produced wind damage and flash flooding with cars submerged in the northern part... calling for a disaster on the Merrit during rush hour was fine. That road gets flooded easily in spots Traffic would have come to a stand still.. I am flabbergasted at how the storm broke apart entering Fairfield county. Thats just so interesting to me.



Storm Reports June 22, 2012. Look at all the reports!



I'll never understand why people need something to happen in order for a warning to be ok.
