    Dollar to a thousand stale bagels some nut will be in this forum by Monday telling us this hurricane was spawned as a result of CO2. Write it down s0ns!

    It is normally called weather.

    This is the same hurricane that the Washington Compost said was going to be around Category 4 at 140 when making landfall, instead it was a Category 1 at 90 mph making small waves and storm surge. It will be a very wet one for sure which isn't surprising as it is a Hurricane...…

    Warmist stupidity is vivid in this leftist rag:

    Another hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is complicit.

    Yeah riiight, when there were far more powerful hurricanes go through that area in the past, can they blame Trump for Hugo (1989) or Fran (1996)?

    Snicker...…….

    Meanwhile it is still moving to the w/sw at 6 mph, now down to 85 mph according to the NOAA:

    9:00 AM EDT Fri Sep 14
    Location: 34.0°N 78.0°W
    Moving: WSW at 6 mph
    Min pressure: 958 mb
    Max sustained: 85 mph

    We are getting some wind but no real rain yet. Am further inland so should be later today/tonight before the rain comes. The estimates vary wildly right now so may be a couple inches. May be 10 inches. Over 36 hours or so, 10 inches is really nothing to be alarmed about. it usually comes in bands off these things. So lots of drizzle and occasional intense rain rinse and repeat. Got 6 inches off one last year and hardly even noticed.

    Every cable news channel hyped this to the max. I remember how they were all predicting when it dropped to a Cat3 that it will get back up to a 4 before it makes landfall and how huge the storm surge will be.
    And after it got there and wind speeds fizzled out they had reporters dramatically leaning into the wind or hanging on to lamp posts while the branches on trees behind them barely wiggled.
