With Florence finally gone, let's take a minute to shed a little light 💡 on how hurricanes form. ⠀
First off, a hurricane 🌀 is a strong low pressure system that forms over the ocean 🌊 and is characterized by circulating convection, strong winds, and heavy rain.⠀
In order for this to occur, you need 4 key elements:⠀
1. Warm water, generally over 80 degrees 🌡️ (this is why storms form closer to the equator where ocean waters are warmer).⠀
2. High amounts of moisture, to continuously fuel ⛽ the massive storm.⠀
3. A sharp change in temperature as you gain height i.e. very hot temperatures near the surface that quickly turn cold with increasing altitude (otherwise known as a steep lapse rate) which allows air to rapidly rise creating convection.⠀
4. Little change in the direction and speed of wind as you gain height (otherwise known as low vertical wind shear) in order for the storm to essentially stay together and form a healthy upper level outflow.⠀
It’s important to have a plan in-place should you have to deal with the effects of a hurricane. Put together an emergency supply kit with non-perishable foods, plenty of water, a first aid kit 🏥, radio 📻, and flashlights 🔦. Of equal importance, make a plan with friends and family so that you can stay in contact 💕 after the storm strikes.⠀
She’s not even 11 months, climbing up and over any obstacle in her path and found her way up to the kitchen counter... It all happens faster than you think, make sure you keep your little ones safe by not placing stepladders for older siblings close to your kitchen counter, keeping choking hazards like whole grapes, baby tomatoes and nuts out of reach and always place any knifes in use in your sink while not handling!

I visited a fascinating pit last week in Salt Lake City thanks to @3d_machine_control_ninjas. All material made it’s way to the plant by not one, not two, not three, not four, but in fact five 988’s. (haha that was so unnecessary... Who does this BuildWitt guy think he is wasting time like that?) Two loaded trucks and tidied the dump site up two while the other three loaded two hoppers down below. Moving material with a loader like this is also known as load and carry.
WATCH: A bear escaped after being trapped inside a van, accidentally locked by its owner, in Asheville, North Carolina. After the automatic doors failed to open, they had to be unlocked manually, but the bear already had other plans...
