This storm has slammed into a trough that is pulling it apart and throwing it's moisture and content all the way up the east coast. Yesterday before it slamed into the trough, it had the most perfect classic eyewall. Since about 8pm last night the storm has struggled to create an eyewall. In all my life watching hurricanes, I have never seen a storm get battered by a trough, and keep coming back, and I have never seen a 155mph storm with such a sloppy eyewall. The west side of the storm reaches up 20 to 30 thousand feet in the air, while the east side only goes about 10 thousand. It's a sloppy ill formed storm that has no business being there, and certainly has no business not being torn to shreds after slamming into that ridge of dry air.

No weather reporter has explained the dry vortex that just magically appeared behind it in the mid Atlantic keeping it pushed into that trough, so I can't retreat or go east and into the Atlantic storm graveyard.

This hurricane should have been called Frankenstorm, or DARPA's best work yet.

The GOES Disk 8 satellite looks like GOD and DARPA in a battle of Will.

May God prevail!

Does this look like a classic 155mph storm?
Since when do Storms lose their eyewall, but manage to stay 120mph for over 12 hours?
Since when does a Hurricane not get ripped to shreds and torn apart when it hit a trough?
When has a storm ever strengthened into a 150 mph storm right as it makes land fall with a battered eyewall?

I haven't seen any squall worthy of a mention, it rains for about 20 minutes then as soon as it stops. I step out of my mancave Hurricane watch center, and the air will be dry and hot. The grass is dry about 20 minutes later. And I'm saying that was happening all through the night, until I went to bed last night at 3am. I've never seen anything like it. The rooster tail going up the Atlantic started about 8pm yesterday, and hasn't stopped. As it is sucking the moisture out of the storm on the west side, the storm is drawing in all of the moisture out of the air on the east side.

Now I'm watching the live feeds of the storm chasers on the ground, and it doesn't look like anywhere on the west coast has gotten any worse than we have it. The wind is barely swaying the palm trees. I've looked at several and went a few hours back. The eye wall is just a few miles off the coast by now, the trees should be pegged.

I think we're being hyped and lied to, like they do about everything else.

Now of course the west side could be the powerful windy side, we'll see.

This storm sat at 120 mph all day yesterday from 5pm until the 2am advisory. Even when the eye wall was going to shit. That was just impossible, nothing like any storm I have ever seen. The Storm recon also quit updating vital information like pressure, because they knew the math and science wouldn't jibe if they did.
For the storm to be so cobbled together and for it to then pick up speed as the outer bands are making land fall to then gain 35 mph, that's just the stuff pure fantasy is made of.

Here is the loop going all the way back to about 8pm eastern time yesterday. You can see for yourself this sloppy informed storm and all of the sheering it is running into. This entire loop they were reporting the storm at 120mph, and as it hits it's at 155mph. Perhaps they are searching and searching and they find one swath or patch that gives them the best reading to report, but in reality those max sustained winds, are only about 1% of the storms total mass, the rest is barely a strong Cat 1.

My friend from Santa Cruz recently moved to Florida.
I advised her not to live over on the Gulf side, but she did. She's near Sarasota.
I have been over that way 2X; once to Sanibel Island, and then she showed me around Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island.
The houses are all going to be underwater; the streets are about 1ft above sea level.
I was amazed that people built fancy houses out there; the Gulf is gross to swim in during summer, the beach is no relief from the heat and humidity, it's definitely not worth it in my opinion. Of course, I'm a snob too.
I told her to save herself but her neighbor told her that the roads were clogged with traffic, like Russians fleeing the draft, so she stayed.
"You're trapped, like a rat." She agreed.

The area I outlined in red, is the water sheer, if not for the dry air on the other side of that wall of moisture. All of that moisture would have wrapped around that storm, it would have been a 150 mile wide perfect circle vortex with clear visible eye, and along that eye wall there would be max sustained winds of 155mph, and I wouldn't be making this post right now. But that is NOT what we're seeing, unnatural forces are propping this storm up to withstand the trough's assault on the storm. I've never even seen a trough that didn't move dipping back over the course of just 6 hours. Those troughs are short windows to affect storms.

A 155mph storm would have a good solid green all the way around the center, and there would be nothing in the eye, look at the sloppy clouds in the barely formed eye.

7   Tenpoundbass   2022 Sep 28, 10:21am  

The image above for reference on the color I'm talking about.
Remember the in this stat images the more solid that lime green is, the more water is present, there isn't even any yellow magenta or red in this image.

8   Tenpoundbass   2022 Sep 28, 10:23am  

Here's IR top phase, notice the storm off the east coast has more moisture.

Been to Sanibel and Anna Maria somewhat recently. I was surprised how many homes were on grade and not on posts/columns. Both our VRBO rentals were on grade. They'll likely be under water even if what 10# is true. It still has to be a Cat 1-2. Like you said, those places are very low.

I'm used to FL houses on the barrier islands in the Panhandle all being 10' up with parking underneath. I was surprised with Sanibel and Anna Maria and how many houses were on grade. You'll see on grade house on the North side of the ICW in the panhandle, but they have the protection (generally) from the islands to the South along most of the Panhandle.

Either way, going to be an interesting few days.

Yes folks I'm worried about the surge, and tornados, but this is not the town leveler that Hurricane Andrews was.
12   Tenpoundbass   2022 Sep 28, 10:37am  

But I believe that 15 to 20 foot surges are all hype and boogeyman speak.
13   Shaman   2022 Sep 28, 11:27am  

Saw this on a news site. Seems like water rushing out to sea.
14   AmericanKulak   2022 Sep 28, 12:09pm  

This hurricane is very sloppy. Amazing the winds are over 120mph.
15   Tenpoundbass   2022 Sep 28, 12:43pm  

I've been watching two storm chasers who seem to be on opposite sides of the North and South eyewall. They both are looking for the Eye, but there is no eye.
The winds on the East side of the storm, didn't seem to go over 80mph. When the Eastern side of the sloppy eyewall hit, they started getting 100mph gusts. One guy is parked next to a Trailer Park. On the outside of the community. So they have been in position to get aluminum wrapped Styrofoam patio debris blowing across the road. The worst it looks to have gotten so far is 120mph. This going by storms I've been in, and knowing how wind blown vegetation looks at those speeds.
The West side of the storm could be the whopper, but I thought I heard one streamer say, they made it past the convection band of the Strom.

Pure BS. Looking at downtown Tampa, St. Pete port, etc. No storm surge, buncha bullshit.

Here in Orlando, light rain with some gusts up to 25-30mph. Nothing burger. Expected TS winds in about an hour.


My prediction: This bullshit storm will weaken an hour after landfall into a meh tropical storm.

Category 4 my ass.
19   AmericanKulak   2022 Sep 28, 3:50pm  

Lakeland, about 45 minutes SW of me. The storm center is allegedly a few miles to the SW of that.

Some winds, some rain, no big whoop. I'm in a trailer, BTW.

20   Tenpoundbass   2022 Sep 28, 3:58pm  

It was a strong Cat 1 when it made landfall. The backside had a few Cat 2 -3ish bands.
I like hearing the weather news talking heads, having to answer to the reports of 155mph sustained winds.
Those kind of winds have been very rare in this storm and were only quick bursts.
The meterologists were trying to explain that's what they meant, but yet it says "Sustained" right there in the description in the NOAA updates.
"155 mph max sustained winds."

What would be more helpful would be average sustained winds, which would be about 75mph.
Max sustained winds were 100mph
Wide spread down burst (micro tornado cells) that stripped some trees, but trees next door would be unharmed.
The flooding mostly were at the beach front street side parking. Basically every beach front community will flood like that on the ocean side of the intercoastal side in a storm like this. Where as the media tried to make it sound like a Katrina event where a wall 20 foot of water was pushed ten or fifteen miles inland. That did not happen. River banks, and ocean front only.
21   AmericanKulak   2022 Sep 28, 4:08pm  

They're claiming on Fox News Tampa it's down to a 3.

I doubt it was ever more than a 1 at the worst.

Never seen the media/agencies goof like this.

As you say, somebody is confused as to Sustained vs. Gusts, maybe they hired a BA "Science Education" bluehair to write up the data.
23   Tenpoundbass   2022 Sep 28, 4:20pm  

The only explanation is the grifting huxters on the West Coast of Florida are priming the Fema pump to pay out for a 155 mph storm catastrophe. Even if the eyeball evidence can't get past a Category 1. They'll justify the billions they get in FEMA with one image.
24   EBGuy   2022 Sep 28, 6:22pm  

Hurricane Ian you just made landfall. What are you doing next?
I'm going to Disneyworld...

They could use a FEMA bailout long about now.
26   AmericanKulak   2022 Sep 28, 10:59pm  

Whole thing is BS, it wasn't even a 4 at landfall.

By 10PM the sustained winds were 30mph and the biggest gust was recorded at 55mph.

They never lost the lights anywhere near downtown Tampa or Orlando. A few customers in small towns and rural areas.
27   Ceffer   2022 Sep 29, 12:58am  

It sounds like a fake news hurricane. No pics of Anderson Cooper pretending to be up to his neck in water?

LIve cam at The Villages shows some minor squall and heavy rain stuff.
28   Ceffer   2022 Sep 29, 1:30am  

You can watch the Shellenberger segment from cisTits *Schellenberger Kicks Libtard Ass Before Congress) in which some dumass insane and delusional LibbyFuck script readers promote the usual fallacies about energy.

The Global Warming canard requires more frequent and destructive hurricanes. If you have one piddler hurricane a year, it doesn't fit the narrative. So, Hurricane Ian could be simply jacked up by our predictable buddies at the captured MSM to fit the failing narrative?

"Ian, the good news is we are promoting you summarily to a 5!"

Thanks to our boots on the ground guys here at Patnet for confirming that it wasn't all that?
30   Ceffer   2022 Sep 29, 1:55am  

Ian had Sharknados!
32   zzyzzx   2022 Sep 29, 6:43am  

Invitation Homes has a significant holding in Tampa and the rest of Florida. Would be a shame if this storm affected their bottom line...
33   zzyzzx   2022 Sep 29, 6:55am  

"Still safer than Chicago!", someone said through a snorkel!

About to buy a home in Florida? Property insurers pause new deals ahead of Hurricane Ian

When I held a mortgage on my house, Insurance companies used to like drop me just days before the Hurricane season.
The word was, that if you lose insurance during Hurricane season, then they wont write you a policy, or you'll pay three times the going rate.
So with just days, I would call around to find another insurance company. But Citizens was the only insurance company. Finally they would write me a policy for about 20% more than I was paying the year before. Because I was dropped by my previous company(That company of course being them!)
35   Tenpoundbass   2022 Sep 29, 5:34pm  

Here's an excellent example of Propaganda. It's very VERY important for this narrator to make you believe that the 3 to 4 foot of ocean front Ocean Surge, is a 10 to 20 foot city wide surge. Even while he's telling you that the surge was 10 foot, people are wading up to their knees.

See for yourself. Either except the piss on your leg or wipe off the rain.

36   Booger   2022 Sep 29, 6:00pm  

What I don't understand is why so many people carelessly left their vehicles in areas prone to flooding.
39   Ceffer   2022 Sep 30, 3:04pm  

LOL! The neocon land pirates and name stealers behind DHS and FEMA are using disasters as pretenses to commit mass burglaries, heists, home invasions, thefts and surveillances. Mandate evacuations and coast is clear for the methodical plundering.

Would we expect anything less from agencies elevated by the 9/11 false flag edicts?
