Hurricane season started on June 1 and just one tropical depression so far? We're still only on "A"?

I thought we were supposed to be having 50 majors a year by now.

Shut your mouth. :) We have almost fully recovered from Katrina. Hurricanes stay away.

seems that the projections of the eco-weenies have failed to come true - AGAIN.

There you go again JB...getting Teh Goracle all upset. :mad::DI'm just concerned about all those storm watchers and weather weenies that have nothing to do now. And all those contractors and gas companies that gouge people over the hype. How are they going to afford new Benz's?

I remember you put a backup generator in your Fla home. Wouldn't you be pissed about now knowing that you couldn't give it a workout? :D

And of course, all the eco-weenies who might be scratching their heads and thinking "oops". And where I live I think June and July temps were the coldest they've been for some time now. Too bad I don't see the wheels coming off the climate change/global warming/we're all doomed band wagon.

Hey, cut it out with that storm business. I am going to Orange Beach, AL in 2 weeks for the month of Sept.
However, there is something spectacular about being in a high rise condo during a lightning thunderstorm and winds around 50 mph.

Condo is on the 4th Floor. In case of fire, I certainly do not want to be on the top floors.

You mean the weather forecasters in your area don't start scaring you about it in January?

June 1 to Nov. 30. Predictions are that this will be a slow hurricane season. We usually have already had a tropical storm hit us by the middle of Aug.

This might be a little late to chime in, but remember Hurricane Andrew? It formed on August 16 and made landfall on the 24th! Don't blow off the hurricane season just yet. (I'm not supporting the eco-wackos, just making a valid point.)

Charley was August 13th, IIRC and all his buddies quickly followed. I don't ever feel in the clear until December since then.

There is an area in the Atlantic that's forming up right now. Their already sending out recon aircraft to check it out.

At first glance though we here don't think it'll make landfall on the US. Don't hold me to that just yet though, still pretty far out to tell.

Hmmm... with the data they got from the aircraft, they aren't gonna call it a storm just yet, but the NHC is saying it's got the potential to form into a Tropical Storm at any moment. No other tropical cyclones are expected to be capable of forming over the next 48 hours.
