    Hopefully this part of the Mexico coastline isn’t too developed …..

    Let’s get the cold front in here. Not enjoying this semi muggy air for late October.

    Good afternoon and thank You TK.

    Wasn’t around this morning due to Jury Duty.
    I was told no smart phones allowed, so I didn’t bring mine.
    Turns out everyone else did and were allowed to bring them into
    the Jury pool room.

    Do not EVER get Jury Duty at the Chelsea Trial Court. Chelsea is Suffolk County, so I got stuck.

    What a JOKE. It is on Broadway, just on the other side of the Mystic River.
    ZERO as in NONE, NADA parking available anywhere! No lot, not garage.
    Local parking is residents only. Found some meters, 2 hour max.

    On the verge of being late I found a rather dubious spot about a mile away.
    $2,000 fine for blowing off jury duty OR a possible $40 parking ticket.
    Needless to say I pulled in and hoped for the best. Did not get a ticket.
    Did not get on a case and was dismissed.

    What an experience!!!

      I have luckily never had to do that…….. thank god because i think i would be bored to tears. If i ever had to go do jury duty i will hope they do not pick me. I heard if you say one thing that they do not like you get out of it 😉

  8. JimmyJames says:

    The first time I was called for jury duty they dismissed all of us with the case being continued. The second time I was not chosen after meeting with the lawyers.

    • JP Dave says:

      I have had jury duty 6 times. Dismissed 4 times and Was impaneled twice. Got challenged and excused once and Was on the jury for a case the other time.

      It is our civic duty, but in the City it is a MAJOR inconvenience and pain in
      the ass. They do NOT provide parking, so one has to endure the hardship of locating a space or spending big bucks to park in a garage if there is even one near the court house. OR taking the cattle cars, which I refuse to do. That
      is NOT transportation. It is Torture.

      Outside of the city, it’s a piece of cake.

      Today from door to door took 1.5 hours this morning and 20 minutes to get home once dismissed.

    • Tom says:

      I wonder if where the departures are also matters.

      I’d think it might ……

      Could almost see the hemispheric trof-ridge-trof-ridge-trof alignment that would match up with the positive anomalies in western Siberia and eastern Canada.

      • JP Dave says:

        According to Dr. Cohen, the positive anomaly in Eurasia
        IS meaningful. We shall see.

        I wonder if the anomaly in Eastern Canada is also meaningful?
        Perhaps so, but is it for us?

        Maybe it means the northern stream stays parked mostly
        just above the US border? I don’t know for sure.

        I shall continue to monitor for certain.

        • Tom says:

          Thanks JP Dave.

          I also wonder if where the anomaly is located within Eurasia is important. I’d think that west to east area is at least the size of the US or larger.

          I would think it might have a different feedback effect on the atmosphere depending on whether the positive anomaly is in eastern, central or the western part of Eurasia.

          Thank you for posting these snow maps ! They are great to look at !!!!!

    Passing shower here in North Attleboro, just enough to wet the ground. :)

  10. Philip says:

    All TV mets are advertising big rainstorm for next Thursday! I hope it gets outta here by next Friday afternoon as I will be out of doors through the evening.

    • JP Dave says:

      Looks like the GFS came around to the Euro’s thinking.
      Now appears that it’s going to be a Lake’s Cutter. Hope not a precursor
      to our Winter storms.

  11. Woods Hill Weather says:

    It’s important to note that the advertised “rainstorm” for next week is largely dependent on the future of Hurricane Patricia, as the models are using its moisture as the seeds for the rain event here later next week. This is the equivalent of model runs walking very far out on the limb of a dead tree.

    Waiting for Black List and pulled up this oldie from my College Days. (1960s)

    The Velvet Under Ground – “Sweet Jane” Featuring Lou Reed

  13. JP Dave says:

    Look at this GFS 2M temperature anomaly map for 11/7

    Look at Eurasia and Eastern Europe.

    Siberia is colder than noraml, but not by much.

  14. Joshua says:

    Thanks for the video’s, JP Dave. Modern Lovers: Talk about ahead of their time. Jonathan Richman, Natick-born, I believe, took the Greyhound down to NYC to see the Velvet Underground. This was during the late 60s. They inspired him to write songs with a Velvet-riff. Patti Smith did the same thing, but 5 years after Richman. Not only did Richman carry the torch so to speak for the Velvets, he also helped create punk and new wave. With Jerry Harrison (later Talking Heads) and David Robinson (later Cars) he had quite the band.

    The video was recorded in the early 60s, I think. As a car buff, I could infer roughly the time period. Saw several interesting cars including a Citroen Ami (as the video heads into South Boston). Citroen only sold a few thousand Ami’s in the U.S. They sold more DS 23’s and 25’s than Ami’s.

    Hurricane Patricia, with 200 mph winds became the strongest storm ever observed in the eastern Pacific Ocean early Friday. Experts warning it could trigger 39-foot waves along Mexico’s coast.

  16. Longshot says:

    Hurricane Patricia looking very serious. Sustained winds of 200 MPH. 880 mb. Will move right into Mexico.

    My mom, who is a faithful reader of this blog and introduced me to it, is in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with my aunt and her husband on vacation this week.

    I am hoping they are on plane home or in a shelter.

    I need your prayers and positive thoughts today!

    • shotime says:

      Captain, will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers for a safe return home! Keep us posted.

    • North says:

      Captain, hoping they are on their way home and sending those positive thoughts and prayers for them to make a safe return.

    • Tom says:

      Best wishes for them Captain ……

      I was trying to understand where Puerto Vallarta was and found it on a map, but was struggling to transpose the track of the hurricane to that location.

      Hopefully that area will not get the eye or the right, front quadrant of the storm.

    • Vicki says:

      Captain, I have said a prayer and will continue to pray for your mom, aunt and your aunt’s husband. I cannot imagine how you and they are feeling right now. I’m also praying for the many, many in the area of this monster’s path.

  18. Captain Fantastic says:

    Thank you.

  19. JimmyJames says:

    Captain saying prayers and holding good thoughts.

  20. Woods Hill Weather says:

    That hurricane has encountered ideal conditions for about as rapid strengthen as can occur.

    C.F. thinking of your family and all in that area.

    There is a new post up!
