Tornado's in New Brunswick????

Yup, looks like it. :? :shock: :? :?

Not too sure what is going on, but Em just called down and told me that we have a Tornado Warning for Kent, Westmorland and Albert counties. I live in Westmorland county about 30 kms southwest of Kent county. The tornado cells are movin this way :shock: :shock:

Environment Canada is pretty good about their warnings and advisories. An advisory is just that something might happen, warnings mean that it is no longer just possible, but probable. Not something that I am looking forward to.

I have always told Em after experiencing a small tornado in SoCal back in the late 70's that I never wanted to live through another one -- looks like the unthinkable is thinkable.

We have thunderstorms pounding our way and the rain has already started. Sure hope we escape the tornado --

Will let ya know what happens.....

Rudi,

I hope I never see one. However, whenever there is a watch (or maybe a warning) I'm sure to be outside looking. If one ever comes, I'd never forgive myself for missing it.

Your system sounds better. Our stupid weather bureau decided to call both conditions names starting with "W". I wonder how many really know the difference between a Watch and a Warning? I'm never sure.

Probably very few. For the benefit of anyone reading this that doesn't know:

A tornado WATCH means weather conditions are those that can produce a tornado.

A tornado WARNING means one has actually been spotted in the area (I think "spotted" could be visual or a radar signature).

That's probably right... since I respect your wisdom. Now, here's how un-necessarily confusing it is. Warning could easily = a tornado could happen, be careful... if it happens, don't say we didn't warn you. Watch could easily = there the sucker goes... watch all the excitement and damage it does. I don't think those guys down at the weather bureau gave it any thought at all when they named the conditions.

You still there, Rudi?

Yup, we is still here. Good thing we got passed by. Over the last 2 days we have had thunderstorms, hail (which we haven't seen in a very long time), very high winds - higher than normal and of course the Tornado Watch/Warnings.

It was kind of a tense night. All of my Cubs were outside as the shop is being taken up by the new JD and of course Jethro's mill.

We got up this morning and it was with much relief to see that everything was still where we left it.

I know that for some of you who are used to tornado's and hurricanes - it probably is not as big a deal as it is for us here. We are just used to the Nor-easters and Blizzards and 5 foot snowfalls. Very seldom do we get the weather that people in Tornado Alley and the Hurricane prone areas get.

Thanks for everything!

Rudi,

We're a lot like the dog that knows to stay off the road... even though he's never been run over. If we ever see a tornado we'll probably be as scared as anyone else. Hurricanes... now they're really scary, since they cover such a broad area.

Here's something you can chew on - a nor'easter is a non-tropical winter hurricane! They gain energy from the warm ocean, that's why the winter coastal storms can be so brutal.

Since they usually form off the mid-Atlantic coast, nor'easters are probably the direct result of hot air blowing out of Washington, DC.

Carl, I guess that would explain why we've had some late spring nor'easters (fortunately just heavy rains, not snow) up here recemtly. There's been a lot of hot air and ill winds blowing out of Washington lately--as anyone in Maine employed at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, Brunswick NAS, or the Loring Accounting Center would tell you. :(
