    Looks like it's shaping up to be another interesting hurricane season, doesn't it?

    Yeah this looks to be an East Coast thrill-ride, doesn't it?

    And after this one, there's another hurricane cooking, and I am informed still another one after that, too

    Thank dog there's no global warming, cuase if there was, then we'd really be in trouble, eh?

    we need rain in the mtns...gustav gave us zip....now looks like hannah will miss us too....it was suppose to come up the inland but is now hitting the coast with not much power I hope...Ike scares me. I have family inland about two hours. Ike can do damage that far inland if he hits the coast as a 4 or forbid a 5.

    I have no clue how they predict paths etc. All I can do is watch like anyone else, I guess.

    global warming is mainly due to the suns activitiy ....this has been a month of little or no sunspots. sunspots cycles are thinning the ozone..man flatters himself....so much more than he/she really should. We are nothing in the continim of time.

    I assume you mean florida and you are showing your age using 3 letters for the states...my my....even at 55...i know that is passe'. but it makes no difference to anyone since there is little to nothing that can be done about it. People will have to accept the climate changes and learn or adapt to them.

    we are but actors on a stage, full of sound and fury.....
