Time Flies....

>> Thursday, May 22, 2008

It is cliche, but true. And it only seems to get faster with each passing day. Today was my oldest daughter's final day of preschool. Unbelievable. It really only seems like yesterday that I was laying next to my wife in the hospital bed and had this tiny little frog-looking thing laying on my chest. That was just the beginning of this next, wonderful chapter of my life that we continue in today.

Our little Jayden is not so little anymore. She is a full-fledged kid, riding a bike and singing in the kids' choir at church.

And she is not alone. Little Grace is now 3 years old. She is on the same t-ball team as Jayden, she loves driving around her little motorized Barbie Jeep, and she will start preschool in August.

And then there is Julianna....our little baby is about 19 months old now....walking, talking, doing everything (or at least thinking she can) her sisters are doing.

Time really does fly. And I know that it will feel like a blink of an eye before we are getting drivers licenses, moving into college dorms, and planning weddings.

As I sat in the car and watched Jayden head into school this morning, it all just kinda hit me. It really all happens so quickly.

So, I just continue to thank God for a wonderful, healthy, happy family.....and I will continue to cherish all of these moments.....


Some radar grabs from the severe storms yesterday...

Severe threat today...

>> Tuesday, May 20, 2008

This is the second day of my 'weekend,' but I wanted to put up a quick post regarding today's severe weather potential.

This morning, some showers and storms are racing off of the coast into the Virginia tidewaters. In the wake of that activity, all will likely be pretty quiet through the morning hours.

A cold front will drop in here later today and kick off some showers and storms as we head through the afternoon. It looks like enough severe weather parameters will be in place for a risk of some severe storms, with the threat likely getting greater as you head into eastern North Carolina and down through South Carolina.

It looks like damaging winds will be the biggest severe weather threat, although large hail is definitely quite possible, and an isolated tornado can't be ruled out.

So, keep it tuned to News 14 Carolina through the day...as always, we will be there keeping you completely up to date.

Great morning unfolding for us. I am sitting here with the window open listening to the birds sing as I type this. Beautiful start to the day.

The weather will be great all day with lots of sun and highs in the upper 70s to around 80.

Another storm system will drop in here tomorrow and bring us another shot at showers and storms. The main window of opportunity will be later in the afternoon into the early evening hours.

Just like Sunday's set-up, the instability will not be overly impressive, but the wind fields aloft will be. So, any of the stronger storms that develop could produce some damaging winds and small hail.


A few wind-producing storms possible this afternoon...

A cold front will drop in here by this evening, and it still looks like a band of showers and storms will race through the Piedmont from northwest to southeast this afternoon and early evening.

The overall instability will be lacking, but there is enough wind energy aloft that any decent storms that do develop will have the chance to produce some damaging winds.
