Derecho sounds like something you get if you eat bad shrimp in Mexico.
 
2022-07-05 5:21:38 PM  
So it's going to either take a right or go directly ahead. Got it!!

Typical left-wing media bias; if this had been an izquierdo, we wouldn't have heard a peep about it.

That's a BIG area to have 45mph sustained winds, it's not quite a hurricane as far as pure scale of energy, but it's close.

I thought it was the name of a 1990's band that was a one hit wonder.

Ok in all seriousness this one is no joke. Reports of 80-90 mph winds around Sioux Falls.
Things haven't blown this hard around here since we elected Noem.

So once it's passed, is it an Izquierdo?

It's always the Right causing damage

You've never heard of a deadly Izquierda, have you?

I rest my case.

To paraphrase Bart, I didn't think it was possible but she both sucks and blows.

Those are derechas, and are still being removed.

"This derecho is really getting its act together."

"Uh huh."

"I bet this derecho isn't calling to get picked up from the drunk tank at 3 p.m."

"JESUS DAD I'M SORRY YOU DIDN'T HAVE THIS AWESOME DERECHO FOR A SON INSTEAD OF ME."

I was assured in yesterday's shooting thread that the circled area is indeed Chicago.

But anyway, it won't get here until very late and they tend to lose their bite after sunset.

Yeah, as I told the wife, that color sky would have had us all in the basement for sure, I've only seen green/yellow/purple skies a few times in my life and the results were never something you wanted to experience without a stout building around you.

Oh come on. We've been biatching that it's been way too hot and dry so far this summer. Then this morning we got over 3 1/2 inches of rain in a few hours. Now there's a derecho coming? Fark off!

That just never gets old.

Derecho and tornado have the same etymology.  They are both of Spanish origin, for phenomena known to people before the USA was born.  If only southerners and midwesterners would understand that they themselves were assimilating into Spanish culture, maybe not by a lot, by freely using the terminology.

The storm has been reduced to about a third of the original size so that has to be promising, right?
