Still Odd Again and Revelations

May 31, 2019

Again last night the signals were strange - sometimes fleetingly and sometimes not so much.  But as I thought the signals had returned to normal and also maybe weaker, they again returned to odd in that SB could be clearly heard across the middle and concurrently with SD on the law end.  This combination could often parlay into a not-good situation for possible future tornadic activity elsewhere (maybe anyhow).

However, I have also had a revelation of sorts as to what else I should be looking regarding clues to make sense of my model.  Again, I hope I am not just reinventing the wheel here with my model.  But I don't believe so, as I am looking at unique aspects of it all (I am thinking).  Of course, maybe the day may yet come when I can seriously study my tornado prediction model in greater detail.

140 Tornadoes over the last few days

May 22, 2019

This evening at approx.. 10 PM (2200 WST), KNX 1070AM radio in Los Angeles reported something about 140 tornadoes have been reported over the last few days (or so) in the nation’s Heartland.

As I have been overly preoccupied during the last few years, I have decided to sometimes change the protocol my blog entries as I am able- when I am able to listen for the saints’ singing at all.  Rather than mostly trying to be predictive of tornadic activity with my model, I can/might blog in retrospect when noteworthy.  As I typically blog for my own future reference anyhow, I don’t need to prove the veracity of my own statements to myself in retrospect either.

Nevertheless, the saints’ singing during the last week (or so) was significantly weaker than normal.  And such still seems weak when/if the signals are not just odd.  Like…, St. B being heard across the middle while Saint D. is concurrently heard on the low end (at the less-than-optimal listening spot and at low to varying degrees of strength).  Like I said: odd.  The last time such a juxta-positioning was apparent there was also some significant amount of tornadic activity in the Heartland, as I recall as well.  Then again, I am never quite sure how much my model is being affected by passing storms here in SoCal.

Rockin’ Combinations

April 17, 2019

Of late, many storms and much tornadic activity have been rocking across the nation’s heartland.  However, the signals heard throughout and during the week prior to this same time period, those signals have been of nearly every combination possible.  From the singing of one saint dominating the band (such as SD everywhere) to no saints being heard at all (which is typically the worst combination, barring a passing storm here on the west coast).  Moreover, these odd combinations, perturbations, and fluctuations have been typically too odd of which to blog.  (That, or I’ve been falling asleep at night and forgetting to blog about the matter.)  

But the oddest combination of which I have rarely heard and as heard during this timeframe, is the singing of the saints with the different saints each being clearly heard (from opposite directions) and each dominating its own respective portion of the band (as with SD on the low-side and SB simultaneously across the middle).  This is a very odd combination, in deed.  However, seemingly within a short time thereafter, the signals might return to a more commonly heard combination or, again, to no saints being heard at all.  

Again, I think the issue or point of my model could be when the signals come to an abrupt change, such is when the model could be warning of future storms and possibly tornadic activity in the nation’s heartland.  Or so I’ve come to observe/surmise.

Need to compile the Oddities

So, the signals have been very strange over the last two weeks (approximately).  Interestingly enough, there was several distinct instances of tornadic activity elsewhere – seemingly each time I didn’t follow through with a blog entry on the signals (tornadoes reported in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Texas, and New Mexico to list a few places).  

I dunno.  I suppose I’ve maybe been lazy.  But also, after my last blog entry I don’t think there was any tornadic activity – so that was a bit disheartening.  Though, recently there was also some passing storms here on the West Coast  – and I’m still not really sure of the effect of passing storms on hearing the signals.   

Nothing much of anything was to be heard at various listening locations.  However, SB was eeking-through at points in time – and SB was even seeming to dominate a couple of evenings ago.  But in general, the signals have been notably weak.  (The signals are possibly beginning to return to normal as of the time of this entry, but I'm not really sure.)

My condolences to the afflicted and their families due to the recent tornadoes, of course.  

One of these days – now that I have a bit more free time, I am going to have to compile all these blog entries and compare and try to correlate the entries to tornadic activity in the heartland.  Stay tuned for that.

The Saints Ain’t Been Singing

Jan. 24, 2019

From what I’ve been able to hear over the last few days or so, SD and SB ain’t been heard much.  But I have not been at the premier location for listening, either.  Surprisingly though, this evening I heard Saint Gabriel try to barely eek through across the middle.  There has been a low over the southwestern mainland that had passed a couple of days back too, I believe – worth noting.  And I think there was some tornadic activity in Florida today as well.  But mostly the pressure has not been overly low during this time, nevertheless. Though I don’t think my model typically tracks to there.  Who knows for sure?
