The Greek Atlantic

Filed under: General Weather & Forecasting — Mike U @ 11:43 pm

In a season chalk-full of unprecedented events in the Atlantic basin tropics…here’s something else that has never happened before…and quite frankly something that I never thought I’d ever see happen: More tropical storms/hurricanes than we have set names for. The genesis of “Alpha” occurred earlier today, a newly named tropical storm in the northeastern Carribean. It looks like this storm will not impact the east coast of the U.S. as a deep trough…the same trough that will take Wilma across Florida…will take Alpha out into the open Atlantic.

Speaking of Wilma… looks like Fort Myers/Naples are will get a good hit, likely coming in at a Cat 2… perhaps a low end Cat 3. Interesting the Oct22/18z GFS takes Wilma north northeast close to the east coast and impacts New England going into mid-next week.


  1. Be prepared for the next hurricane katrina path or find another one that’s similar. As the Boy Scouts say: “Be Prepared”!

  2. I’m about to make you think.
    It might be painful.

    Have you done anything earth shattering lately?

    Read anything that really sets your mind on fire with a passion to do good?

    How about doing something important for yourself?

    Have you?

    Do you know without a doubt where you will be living a few years from now, what you will be doing?

    Got a Plan?

    Know how to get there?

    You gotta have goals!

    I enjoy blog surfing and when I find one that makes me think a bit I like to leave a little nuget behind that may help the writer.

    What will you do with this “nugget”? Ignore it or use it…

    Here’s yours;

    Write Goals Down

    This crystallizes your goals and gives them more force. In writing your goals down, you are better able to keep up with your scheduled tasks for each accomplishment. It also helps you to remember each task that needs to be done and allows you to check them off as they are accomplished.

    Basically, you can better keep track of what you are doing so as not to repeat yourself unnecessarily.

    Set lifetime goals. At least have an idea of what you want to accomplish with your life.

    Keep the low-level goals you are working towards small and easy to achieve. If a goal is too large, then it can seem that you are not making progress towards it.

    Keeping goals small and incremental allows you more opportunities for reward. Derive today’s goals from larger ones. It is a great way to accomplish your goals.

    Set Performance Goals, not outcome goals

    You should take care to set goals over which you have as much control as possible. There is nothing more dispiriting than failing to achieve a personal goal for reasons that are beyond your control.

    These could be bad business environments, poor judging, bad weather, injury, or just plain bad luck. If you base your goals on personal your performance, then you can keep control over the achievement of your goals and get satisfaction from achieving them.

    Set Realistic Goals. It is important to set goals that you can achieve.

    All sorts of people (parents, media, and society) can set unrealistic goals for you which is almost a guarantee of failure. They will often do this in ignorance of your own desires and ambitions or flat out disinterest.

    Alternatively you may be naive in setting very high goals. You might not appreciate either the obstacles in the way, or understand quite how many skills you must master to achieve a particular level of performance.

    By being realistic you are increasing your chances of success.

    Do not set your goals to low.

    Just as it is important not to set goals unrealistically high; do not set them too low.

    People tend to do this where they are afraid of failure or where they simply don’t want to do anything.

    You should set goals so that they are slightly out of your immediate grasp, but not so far that there is no hope of achieving them. No one will put serious effort into achieving a goal that they believe is unattainable.

    However, remember that your belief that a goal is unrealistic may be incorrect. If this could be the case, you can to change this belief by using imagery effectively.

    Good Luck and Happy Goal Setting!

    Hi storm300

    Have you done anything earth shattering lately?

    Read anything that really sets your mind on fire with a passion to do good?

    How about doing something important for yourself?

    Have you?

    Do you know without a doubt where life is taking you?

    Got a Plan?

    Know how to get there?

    Most people don’t. They just go through life hoping for the best. How can you possibly reach your dreams if you don’t have a real plan?

    A new year is coming. It’s time to start thinking about your New Years Resolution and really start planning your life don’t you think…

    …follow through on some of those old goals you had years ago.

    Even people in the goal setting business tend not to visit their “life plan” very often.

    Are you one of those?

    Need a little refresher and some FREE goal setting tips?

    Spend a few minutes at Long Term Goals and take away life changing information.

    Happy New Year!
