Obama's convention speech coincides with hurricane season
Politico ^ | 1/17/12 | LEIGH MUNSIL and BYRON TAU

President Obama will accept his party's presidential nomination in a big outdoor speech that happens to coincide with another event: the middle of Atlantic hurricane season.

The DNC's convention team announced Tuesday that the President will speak Sept. 6 at Bank of America stadium — a massive outdoor venue that is also home to the Carolina Panthers.

That's a risky weather choice, according to Doug Outlaw, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service's Greenville/Spartanburg office. He noted that four days later -- Sept. 10 -- is the official middle of the hurricane season.

"As far as rain that time of year, it's possible to get a thunderstorm," Outlaw said.

If there's tropical storm activity turning off the Gulf Coast to the northeast, then there will likely be rain in the Carolinas, he added.

And temperatures could easily range from crisp to scorching.

"The beginning of September - there's great variations in temperature," Weather Channel meteorologist Mark Ressler said. "84 is the average. But temperatures have ranged from as low as 58 to as high as 104."

Funny, ever since Katrina, and the big fuss the wackos and MSM (but I repeat myself) made about global warming making hurricanes worse and more frequent... we've had a downright shortage of hurricanes.

Is this true?

In the coming New Year, 2012, both Groundhog Day and the
State of the Union address will occur on the same day.

This is an ironic juxtaposition of events.

One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to an
insignificant creature of little intelligence for
prognostication.

The other involves a groundhog.

Wonderful. It won’t rain and the media will declare that the lord blessed the event.

Predicting this isn’t even fun anymore.

OK, I’m no meteorologist, but I thought hurricane season ends in November.

“”We can only “Hope.””

That’s what we were told to do, wasn’t it? Well, I’m going to do it!!! Maybe the season will begin earlier than normal!
