    I'm late to start this year, but it has some interesting events.

    H. Douglas stayed offshore Hawaiian islands

    which was pretty darn lucky. Atlantic TS Isaias rained on Puerto Rico but I missed catching the doppler rain totals. Isaias is now a hurricane and may stay offshore Florida's east side.

    Predictions for Atlantic hurricane season were all above average I think.

    OOOh closer. Maybe some winds then. Rain will be about the same either way.

    As I have bashed MA for having positive testing above 10%, allow me to amend that. Since June 7, positive tests have been below 5%, More recently most days have been below 3%. That state is doing testing very well and that is also something to be thankful for.

    Overall too-high value of that metric came from inadequate early testing and they fixed it.

    Maybe I should move this to the appropriate thread. I'll take @bisco 's advice on that :)

    we dodged a bullet, didn't even see any trees down on our walk this morning.

    there are some localized outages in the region, but nothing serious fortunately.

    only had 1/4" of rain. no tornadoes reported that i saw.

    our daughter is in the catskills, power is going to be out for a few days, it went right through albany.
