The names are used one after the other. When the bottom of one list is reached, the next name is the top of the next list.


Since 1953, Atlantic tropical storms had been named from lists originated by the National Hurricane Center. They are now maintained and updated through a strict procedure by an international committee of the World Meteorological Organization.

The six lists above are used in rotation and re-cycled every six years, i.e., the 2019 list will be used again in 2025. The only time that there is a change in the list is if a storm is so deadly or costly that the future use of its name on a different storm would be inappropriate for reasons of sensitivity. If that occurs, then at an annual meeting by the WMO committee (called primarily to discuss many other issues) the offending name is stricken from the list and another name is selected to replace it. Several names have been retired since the lists were created.


We have had 1.79 inches of rain in the last 24 hours (this is my 5 am reading).  This brings us to 4.04 inches thus far for the month in Otsego.


We continue with our flood warning into the afternoon:

Tons of rain yesterday and some today. I went out looking for tomato plants at the greenhouse and he had one left.
I took it in hopes of finding another. This week will be perfect for planting everything.

Here’s a pic of the gulley behind our house. It normally has a little 2 foot wide creek about a foot deep. Today it’s about 100 feet wide and 15 feet deep.

A ridiculous 2.8” of rain here since yesterday morning, and it’s still coming down. The Black River across Chicago Drive from us has overflowed and flooded all the fields around us. Bad news again for the farmers who just planted all those fields a week or two ago.

There are still some issues to work out before major league baseball is played. As for the Whitecaps it don’t look like that is happening this year. And next year there looks to be a lot of changes for them as well.

Many of areas in and around the capital city are very low lying. Fortunately, we are not in one of those areas. That said, it is rare when our sump pump fires up. I have heard it several times in the past 24 hours.
