Torrential downpours here today from Bertha. Stayed in the 60s. We've had so much rain in the last 2.5 years.

In 1989 your area was actually hit hard by a hurricane, Hugo.

Rocket Launch in Florida has been postponed due to weather if anyone is into that. Being i visit that area frequently, it's a phenomenal experience watching rockets launch. I was also luckily there when the last space shuttle was launched. Being less then 2 miles away on the banks of the Indian River watching the shuttle launch and hearing the thunderous roar.

I lived in Melbourne, years ago when shots would go off fairly frequently. Even though it was 20 miles away, you could easily see them and even here the low rumbling sound a few minutes after launch. A few times actually went to the Cape area to watch and I agree it is a phenomenal experience.

Was thrilled it was scrubbed today, I will be on Canaveral Beach early Sat morning waiting the launch.

yeh that's one of the big historical events here. Also 2004 when Rock Hill had 22" of snow, if you can believe that!

Apologies for the Florida posts, Iím getting my first taste of TStorm season. We have had an ongoing intense storm for the past 4 hours. The storm is just sitting over us, not moving. Lightning like I have never seen before.

So did you see the launch? It is nice to see something good in the news. Could be the start of a new United States frontier in space. Someday these private companies will be bringing average folks into space.

It was awesome and intense. Folks on the beach started chanting USA! USA! after liftoff. Might sound funny, but everyone should witness a launch once. Itís fascinating.
