This episode we look at the tropics and the severe weather.
It seems that the amount of friction experienced by wind over water decreases when a certain wind velocity threshold has been passed.
I remember hearing someone curse after which they stubbed their toe on a table, someone blurted out “see God punished you for cursing.” This sort of thinking is more pervasive than you might think. But what is the truth, does God follow behind us with a whip or a rod ready to crack us across the knuckles for every infringement or infraction of his rules?
Whenever disasters strike, there are always “lessons learned”. Indeed, many of our modern-day first-response and emergency management systems and protocols are in place today, because somebody likely paid a price (perhaps even loss of lives) in past situations. Likewise, many Hurricane Sandy “lessons learned” will come out of investigations and evaluations of things that took place that perhaps could have been avoided through more careful preparations and planning…by individuals, families, communities, municipalities, and State and Federal government agencies responsible for such.
Many of us in Cambridge, Maryland breathed a sigh of relief the day after Hurricane Sandy’s visit, especially after hearing about the widespread devastation it left in New Jersey and elsewhere. Nonetheless, I would like to share some pictures for you taken after Sandy traveled further west then north.
