Hello, everyone, welcome to the Fog Bank, for August 27, 2012, keeping Weatherbrains foghorn free for JB … if he can keep his connection up long enough for picks of the week. I'll include the pick I sent to JB at the end of the post.
Of course, Tropical Storm Isaac has been in the news all week. I didn't watch much live television, so I don't know how large the blow-dried knucklehead contingent was.
My first pick is Isaac related. Chuck Prevatte sent a link to the Florida Division of Emergency Management
His iPhone autocorrected Emergency to Mendicancy, which I found pretty funny.
The second pick is also from Chuck, who had explored that site, and found their Geospatial Assessment Tool for Operations and Response. Very clearly a backronymed application … it spells GATOR
My third pick comes from the morning weather cast from KTLA TV in Los Angeles. Was this guy mentored by Spann or Selle?
Fourth, I have the website for the Hurricane Research Division of the Atlantic Oceanographic & Meteorological Laboratories. The site has a link to their Twitter account.
Finally, I have two links on a Tidewatch forecasting system for the lower Chesapeake Bay
Thanks for listening,
