Having lived here for over forty years, I have seen just about every kind of weather we get. Although we have not had a proper direct hit from a hurricane, we have had a few close calls, and one ferocious winter storm in March of 93 that most of us will never forget. Preparedness will save you grief, and quite possibly your life!
So, it’s unusual to see a story like this one: The National Weather Service, and Pasco Emergency Officials, are urging Pasco County residents to review, update, and prepare severe weather action plans.
This is due to the El Nino weather phenomenon, which I explain (very simply!) in the podcast, today. This past summer, and in 2012, West Pasco County was hit with unprecedented flooding from rainfall…And we are likely to see these heavy rains again, this winter and spring, which is outside of our normal pattern, and bears watching.

Now, I save my favorite link for last. If you, like me, want people to be in AWE of your weather information skills, visit Tropicwx by clicking the green text or the image, below. This page is a WALL of weather maps and information! Check out the screen shot, below:
So, here’s the important stuff:
Have a plan.
Watch the weather, FREQUENTLY.
Have a plan.
Did I mention having a PLAN, yet?
