No hurricanes so far this year

Post by Bruce »

Probably has something to do with Global Warming. :roll:

If the first hurricane fails to appear until after 8 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time Sept. 15, this will be the most hurricane-free first half of a season since satellites began tracking the storms in 1967
This is bad, folks. If Obama doesn't strike Syria right now, newscaster will have nothing to report except for shark attacks. Wolf Blitzer could lose his job. As much as 40 cable news stations stations could go bankrupt. Who can we blame?

Who can we blame?? :(

Ah, yes. Doritos. A cleverly magnified threat after the previous El Nino failed produce mass media worthy damage.

Must suck to work in the news business these days. People just don't scare like they used to because they have readily available credible resources (spit) with which to educate themselves.

Have you noticed ever since the stereo-satellites orbiting the sun started collect data, the media tries to make front page headlines out of every coronal mass ejection? Nobody cares. I feel kind of bad for them. :(

Isn't duracheo what they call a bad inland storm with hurricane force winds? In WV, we had one that took out power to much of the state for weeks. Stores were empty, you couldn't get gas.

Actually, it was. Every time the wind blew, it seemed the power was out for days in some areas. We were lucky - living in downtown Charleston, we rarely had more than a blip in our power. :-)

three hours short of the 2002 record.
(Newser) – Had Hurricane Humberto—the first hurricane of the Atlantic season—hit just about three hours later, it would have set a new record for the latest first hurricane to form in the Atlantic Ocean. Alas, Humberto's dreams of meteorological infamy were dashed when its winds reached a sustained 75mph around 5am ET, making it just another hurricane, reports CNN.

It won't even have the chance to do much damage—it's currently about 310 miles off West Africa's Cape Verde Islands, and is expected to turn into a piddling tropical storm over the weekend. The record holder continues to be 2002's Hurricane Gustav, which was named a bit after 8am on Sept. 11 of that year, reports AccuWeather. The year's first hurricane is generally named by Aug. 10, notes the Miami Herald. Hurricane season wraps up Nov. 30; three to six major hurricanes have been predicted.
Fucking pussy hurricane. Wouldn't make me take in the porch furniture. I wouldn't remove the wind chimes for a light breeze like that. That's not even enough wind to clear the dope-smoke out of Wildcat's living room.

News is truly dead.

It's an industry fueled by fear, and average joe public is numb to fear.

I watched a comedian named Simon King last night. He seems to have an accurate sense of the current public mood. Depression is no longera stigma. It's a norm.

There was one line that had me cracking up. Doesn't sound all that funny when taken out of context, but his delivery was perfect.

News is owned and controlled by corporations. This is extremely dangerous to our democracy.

That is rather standard, and has been for decades.

The Great Flood of 1862 was the largest flood in the recorded history of Oregon, Nevada, and California, occurring from December 1861 to January 1862. It was preceded by weeks of continuous rains and snows in the very high elevations that began in Oregon in November 1861 and continued into January 1862. This was followed by a record amount of rain from January 9–12, and contributed to a flood that extended from the Columbia River southward in western Oregon, and through California to San Diego, and extended as far inland as Idaho in the Washington Territory, Nevada and Utah in the Utah Territory, and Arizona in the western New Mexico Territory. The event dumped an equivalent of 10 feet (3.0 m) of water in California, in the form of rain and snow, over a period of 43 days.[3][4] Immense snowfalls in the mountains of far western North America caused more flooding in Idaho, Arizona, New Mexico, as well as in Baja California and Sonora, Mexico the following spring and summer, as the snow melted.
