Forecast Results June 9-11, 2010

In the first of my Hurricane 2010 forecasts posted on April 1, of this year, I mentioned that planetary cycles involving Mercury, Mars, and Neptune would expose the East Coast areas from Cape Hatteras to New England to possible tropical activity or if not an actual tropical system, some other type of severe weather pattern. The time frame was between June 9-11. I mentioned the possibility of a tropical system centering about 290 miles south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina around the 10th of June and tracking along the East Coast to New England.

Fortunately, for the inhabitants of the East Coast, no tropical storm resulted. The Weather Channel map above is for June 11th and shows a low pressure area off the North Carolina coast.

The Accuweather map at right shows their weekend forecast for June 12-13. Notice the low pressure area over Virginia coast. Their article was entitled Humid Air Returns with Flash Flooding Risk this Weekend in the Northeast.

This is exactly what is happening. As we speak, the National Weather Service has issued the following types of Alerts for the area:

Massachusetts- Marine Alerts
New Jersey- Special Weather Alert
New York- Flash Flood, Flood, Marine
North Carolina- Special Weather Alerts
Pennsylvania- Flash Flood, Flood, Marine
Virginia- Flash Flood, Special Weather Alerts
West Virginia- Flash Flood, Special Weather Alerts

But even before these, which are a day late according to my forecast, on the 9th Accuweather reported thunderstorms capable of producing flash flooding, hail, damaging wind gusts and volleys of cloud-to-ground lightning strikes will stretch from Tennessee and northern Mississippi to southeastern Virginia and the Delmarva Peninsula through Wednesday evening.

How Long-Range Forecasts Are Made

What You Never Learned in School
Soccer player Kyle Rote Jr. remarked, “There is no doubt in my mind that there are many ways to be a winner, but there is really only one way to be a loser and that is to fail and not look beyond the failure.” How people see failure and deal with it—whether they possess the ability to look beyond it and keep achieving—impacts every aspect of their lives.

In Leadership Magazine, J. Wallace Hamilton states, “The increase of suicides, alcoholics, and even some forms of nervous breakdowns is evidence that many people are training for success when they should be training for failure. Failure is far more common than success; poverty is more prevalent than wealth; and disappointment more normal than arrival.”

Training for failure! That is a great concept, and it’s the idea that prompted me to write this book. I want to help you train for failure. I want you to learn how to confidently look the prospect of failure in the eye and move forward anyway. Because in life, the question is not if you will have problems but how you are going to deal with your problems. Are you going to fail forward or backward? --Failing Forward by John C. Maxwell
