Not wishcasting, but almost all forecast models called for a major hurricane event even before it left the coast of Africa.

You aren't exaggerating either. Local Tampa weatherguy pointed out the giant Invest90 before it had completely emerged from Africa.

Ana (potential Cat 1-2) is just clearing the path for the soon to be named Monster Bill (potential Cat 3-5) that is following behind. Not wishcasting, but almost all forecast models called for a major hurricane event even before it left the coast of Africa.

Bill? But we already had a disaster named Bill. I thought they retired the name...

Here is another neat storm tracking website.

Storm Pluse

Time to break out the 72 hour kit and update expired meds, etc.

Hope all will be safe this year.

That may be the coolest tracking site I have seen yet. The graphics and size of the maps are awesome!

My one pet peeve (and this is about most sites) is they only cover the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific Basins. As a Tropical Cyclone buff, I like coverage of all of the basins.

Well let me be the first this year to thank you for all of the good work you do with each incoming storm

It's always good to know thet you and others are out there when 'da hurricane blow'

We've had our own storm brewing for a bit down here in the keys ... bubbas feeding at the trough:

The County school superintendent and his wife have stolen at least $500K from the school and the mentally handicapped and they are out without bail

I know what you mean. I guess the folks doing this are more interested in covering their area of the world rather than the whole earth.

Great graphic. Stolen!

You always have interesting stories coming out of The Conch Republic. The deviant duo is no exception.

I saw this last night on the eastern loop satellite. Ohnoes! Actually, it looks like it will fizzle.

Did you see the one off Baja California?

Here we go..the season is upon us :)

Five years ago we still didn’t have electricity after Charley. But- off topic and because I must celebrate- 5 years ago tomorrow my son had surgery on his leg for sarcoma and was given a 20% chance to live. He has fought like hell and today- he’s reached the significant 5 years, cancer-free mark! WOOOO HOOO! WTG, God :)

Ahh, 2004. Charley and Frances and Ivan and Jeanne. They all pale to the anniversary you are celebrating.

Thanks:) The joy and gratitude around here is similar to a birthday!

Meanwhile- I’m ready for whatever hurricanes come our way this year. Including plenty of chocolate ;)

Is it possible to put this on the side bar into top news or breaking for those of us in South Florida who need to keep tabs? I don’t have cable so I am limited to news breaks about this issue. Thanks in advance :)
