Tangle Refresher 32

Tangle Refresher!

Here we are entering the peak of the hurricane season, traditionally that’s Labor Day Weekend in this part of the world. Since we’ve lived in Florida for nearly 30 years and most of that in South Florida, Robert and I have first-hand experience of many of them – including the Hurricane Andrew devastation 20 years ago this week. Not a fun adventure.

The most important thing we learned a long time ago is to monitor the National Hurricane Center website and studiously ignore television’s sensationalist fear-mongers. The NOAA site (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) is the only way to get the facts about where “tropical cyclone” systems are headed – and avoid the hysteria and hyperbole of television reporting. Right now there are three systems out there chugging their way across the ocean from Africa’s “storm generator” but we are armed with the facts and will act accordingly should the need arise. And pray that everyone who ends up in the path of one remains safe.

This regular Tangle Refresher series appears every other Friday and it uncovers buried treasure on the site. Tangle Refreshers can  introduce you to patterns you might not have come across yet or remind you of patterns you might not have used for a while.

Here are five more tangle pattern gems and a Tangle Refresher from a year (or two) ago for your tangling pleasure. There are also links at the bottom to more buried content, so be sure to check them out too. Happy tangling!

    Hi Linda,
    We also live in a cyclone area here in Townsville Australia and have done for the past 18 years. We and the rest of Queensland went through one of our nastiest in April last year (2011) which was named “Yasi”. It caused terrible damage along much of the Queensland coast including Townsville, so I know what they are like and how scary it can be. And yes, the press and TV here are also sensationalistic so we too stick with the Bureau of Meteorology! So I wish you well in Florida, let’s hope all three deviate and chug on back to sea without crossing the coast!

    My thoughts & prayers are with you all. Let’s hope for a good outcome.
