Default Weather, atmosphere, visualization

Hey Gardner, I got that slow thing, kind of a shock. Guess I need to update my self-image or speed up the video.

Looking for realtime jet stream map, trying to visualize what the weather is doing in the southwest. If I had looked last week I prolly wouldn't be hitting the road from Norfolk to Q--there was snow all over Tucson, icy roads in DFW and OK, brrr. Jet stream letting arctic air down to southern Arizona border.

Found an atmosphere visualization, nice for whiling away a rainy day.. The puffs and said to be forest fires.

It's around 50 this morning. Damp and cold. Fired up the Primus and coffee
Surprisingly the noise from the overhead highway was not bad last night, I slept pretty well.
This cold Southwest weather thing is not what I am driving thousands of miles to enjoy. I thought it was supposed to be warm down there.

I’m afraid we have one of those arctic front that is dipping down south right now I’m afraid no matter which way you go you have a choice of a couple days of freezing rain for a couple days of snow plus a day of freezing rain. I don’t like freezing rain so I would probably take the snow. Oh and I hate snow.
With your next post please tell me what time of day it is and where you are so I can get a more accurate picture of where are you are to play against the weather.

That’s a great looking coach Gardner , it must draw quite a bit of attention at fuel stops and such. I can see what you meant about highway noise. That’s pretty impressive matrix of roads .

Been there, done that for 8 days when Jeep trans crapped out, nice place for free even with all the noise. Go downtown and have a great dinner on the jazz street.
