Every now and then, I check Hurricane Harbor just to see what this hurricane prognosticator is predicting. Her rather bizarre Blog reads the way a few of my friends will sound a little later tonight:
Out in the Atlantic are three possible centers from a long, spread out …wide area of convection. Let’s call them Larry, Moe and Curly and I’m figuring none of them are going to make it to prime time unless they have a sex change operation or are cross dressers in which case Danielle may come out of hiding though she is progged to be a fish storm. Amazing…not even here on the maps and already written out of the script.
So… these are my thoughts…
If you are burned out from Colin or simply wishing on the weekend… I’d like to bring up a few topics before storms start popping and we can’t remember we were bored, lethargic or afraid the whole season is going to be a bust.
According to Long Term models supposedly Danielle and Earl are down the road about to pop…. either in the Atlantic or close in around the Gulf… if Earl does the Gulf again I may lose it ;)
Fishy or not… think there is a sense here that they are all gonna be weak storms or fish storms and there is almost a dread to get invested in an invest because it’s not going to be much but some wishy washy fish storm and barely more than a Tropical Storm
I say not… I say we are losing it to the hype that was the Mother of All Seasons and because we have yet to see any storm hit a home run we think this is all too boring to deal with …. a bunch of players walked with the bases loaded and suddenly the inning is over….
Well, I’m a Red Sox fan and we tend to stick around for the whole season…
My sport is football but I think this is a better analogy.
September Remember is the saying and it’s a saying for a reason… we will remember this September I believe…and October.
How does this heat wave get unstuck…. note to people here who whine and complain we all want storms and death and destruction….there are more deaths from Heat Waves than Hurricanes and Tornadoes statistically. I’d fear the heat more than a Category 1 or 2 storm …or even a 3.
I do not know whether heat waves are truly more lethal than hurricanes, but I am happy not to be in Russia this summer. The evening weather broadcast would be a lot more colorful if Bonnie were explaining it.
And, here’s to hot Friday nights:
