After the power went out, I sat in the dark last night watching the rain going sideways.

I had a roughly 5 hour power outage just as the front started coming through last night. No twisters, but straight winds powerful enough to flip semis on their sides- one trucker was killed. At least 3 other deaths attributed to the storms last night here.

My wife gets home and asks me if I heard about the twisters in NYC. Apparently an F0 and F1 hit Brooklyn and Queens. I imagine they aren't used to them and were probably thinking the End of Days was nigh.

Weather? Yeah.... check out what I'm facing tomorrow:

[h=1]Environment Canada's Official Weather Warnings[/h]


[h=2]Warnings[/h] St. John's and vicinity
5:29 AM NDT Monday 10 September 2012
Wind warning for
St. John's and vicinity issued

Wind gusts of 100 to 120 km/hour are expected with the passage of tropical storm Leslie.

This is a warning that potentially damaging winds are expected in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..Listen for updated statements.

A trough of low pressure has stalled near the west coast of Newfoundland and will remain nearly stationary before interacting with tropical storm Leslie as it approaches Newfoundland from the south on Tuesday.

This trough will accelerate and steer Leslie toward Southeastern Newfoundland where it is expected to make landfall as a marginal hurricane or strong tropical storm later Tuesday morning. As Leslie interacts with the trough it will enhance the heavy rainfall already occurring with the trough as well as strengthen the winds behind it. However the strongest winds are most likely just to the right of Leslie's track at landfall where southeasterly gusts of 120 km/hour are currently expected. Hurricane watches are in effect for the areas most likely to see these right-of-track winds, taking into account the possibility of a slightly more westward track, with. Tropical storm watches in effect for adjacent areas.

Showers associated with the trough will continue today for Western Newfoundland and change to rain at times heavy this morning. The heaviest rains will continue this evening and into Tuesday with the forecasted arrival of tropical storm Leslie. In areas with the heaviest rain 100 millimetres or more are possible over the next 48 hours.

In addition, tropical storm Leslie will bring very large waves and pounding surf to southern and eastern regions of the island Tuesday morning to afternoon. The highest impact is expected from the Burin Peninsula to the Southern Avalon where the largest waves and surge are expected.

These very large waves, pounding surf, and storm surge will coincide with a falling tide and as a result, impacts from higher high water levels are not expected at this time. However the approach speed of tropical storm Leslie could change within the next 24 hours which would increase the likelihood of potentially hazardous high water levels on Tuesday - therefore these very large waves, pounding surf, and storm surge have the potential to damage coastal infrastructure for coastlines exposed to the south and southeast.

Visit weatheroffice.Gc.Ca/hurricane (all in lower case) for the latest forecast position and track information map.

[h=2]Watches[/h] St. John's and vicinity

Hurricane watch for
St. John's and vicinity continued

Potential for marginal hurricane conditions on Tuesday.

A hurricane watch means that a hurricane or an incipient hurricane condition poses a possible threat to the specified areas within 36 hours.

A trough of low pressure has stalled near the west coast of Newfoundland and will remain nearly stationary before interacting with tropical storm Leslie as it approaches Newfoundland from the south on Tuesday.

This trough will accelerate and steer Leslie toward Southeastern Newfoundland where it is expected to make landfall as a marginal hurricane or strong tropical storm later Tuesday morning.

^^It only sounds bad because they are using the metric system. I mean, who really knows how many kilograms are in a mile anyway?
