    100 miles inland Fayetteville Pop 200K is facing record flooding. Check the pics of the water rise under the bridge between Sunday and Today. Wouldn't cross that one.

    Stop the presses - there is a tree down on Orchard Road in leafy Dublin 6!

    Also, falling chestnuts are a hazard.

    It's edgy in the leafy burbs.

    Tree on the N17 and the Ploughing Match is off today.

    Very sad about the poor tourist killed (post above).

    More big trees down on Palmerston Road area and lots of big branches generally. DCC staff on the ball with chainsaws - fair dues.

    It doesn't feel that windy - maybe the knockdowns are due to the full foliage as someone said above.

    I hope it doesn't lead to a general health and safety tree cull later?

    At one point on Sunday/Monday over 1500 roads in NC were impassable, and water is still rising.

    1. Hurricane Florence's death toll has risen to nearly 40, ranking as a rainfall event that had less than a 0.1% chance of occurring in any given year. Go deeper.

    Last Monday it was a a tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico. Wednesday it made landfall in a rural area of the Florida panhandle as a Cat 4. It was gone in 12 hours, but it's death toll is still uncertain, 18 confirmed, but expected to rise, maybe steeply. No landline or mobile phones people still missing but fate uncertain. In one town of 1,500 people 285 ignored a mandatory evacuation order.

    The death toll from Hurricane Michael has since been upped to 29 with "dozens" still missing a week later. Slow rolling train wreck.


    • New AP tally: Hurricane Michael killed at least 16 people in Florida, plus a total of 10 in Virginia, Georgia and North Carolina.
    • 12 of the Florida deaths were in Bay County, which includes Mexico Beach, the ground-zero town of 1,000 people that was nearly obliterated, as well as Tyndall Air Force Base and Panama City.

    We've had an amazing February here in the midlands. There's been nearly two weeks of double digit temperatures at this stage and the Cherry Trees were blooming as early as Valentine's Day.

    At home here with the unseasonably warm weather we've had a bit of an influx of common lizards to the back yard. Small little fellas but very cute and hardy all the same, they seem to come out onto the back yard at about 8.00 in the evening despite the night time temperatures being 10 degrees with a wind chill factor. They must be much better able to stand cold temperatures than ye'd imagine a 3" long reptile could tolerate.

    Had a short and mild winter here on the east coast. Clocks go forward in the US on Sunday. Light until about 7.30pm. Big tornado disaster in Alabama yesterday. 24 dead others missing. Tornados are a "spring" phenomenon.
