Nor-easrer ste to impact the Northeast part of the country

March 1st will come in with a bang for the Northeastern part of the country. We have had spring like temperatures in the region for the past several days . Looks like old man winter paid another months rent as this could bring a foot or more of heavy snow to the region. Here is an article from watchers.news :

A rather unusual blocking pattern in place across much of the western hemisphere, from North America across the North Atlantic into Europe, will set the stage for a major nor’easter to form Thursday night, March 1, 2018, off the Mid-Atlantic coast. Strong winds and coastal flooding are major hazards from this event.

I think its a big deal…

This is the highest that Cincinnati has seen the Ohio river since 1997. I’m mentioning this because the other day I received a message that said “so what, BFD. Snow melt and rain make it flood.” Sure it does, but this flood event is happening in the end of February, Not March or April as it usually does. Or does this mean since its flooding so early now that this will be a long spring and summer with plenty of rain and flooding?

I’m starting to wonder if people are starting to get desensitized on these major weather events because of how often we are experiencing them. Most of the time, a person who shrugs off such a flooding event, has never had to go through the whole flood/clean up process. Its not fun and a flood could change everything in your life. Especially for those who cant afford flood insurance. Now there are federal grants out there to help home owners but it doesn’t cover everything.

South bend Indiana officials are calling this the 500 year flood… But some of you say “BFD?” Lack of compassion and that kind of mentality will not be a path to success in the grand solar minimum.I wonder if this person would be saying that if they lost a home or a loved one due to any type of flood, let alone this historic flood event that is happening now. Rain stops for Monday and Tuesday but picks back up in the same region on Wednesday and beyond.

Be vigilant, be kind, try to be good to each other because you’ll never know when something like this will impact you and then you might need someone to lean on or ask a stranger for help. It humbles you and you become more appreciative for what you have and gives you some compassion when other folks are going through some very difficult times due to the flooding or any type of disaster.

Here is the spring outlook for Europe

 

From accuweather : Link to article at the bottom.

The warmth of spring will be welcomed by many; however, it will come with an increased risk for severe weather and flooding in some parts of Europe.

An active weather pattern will result in several rounds of severe weather from Germany into Belarus and Ukraine, while the frequent precipitation will produce a high risk for flooding in the Balkan Peninsula.

A less stormy pattern will take hold across western Europe, allowing unseasonable warmth to build from Spain into France throughout the spring.
