I could teach you what it's a reference to.

But I'd have to charge.

One of two things is going to happen

1. Lightning is going to ignite the oil and we'll have our Firecane.
2. Hurricane will suck all the oil out of the water, drag it inland and dump it on Texas. "Here, TX. Here's your shiat back!"
3. It will blow all the oil/water towards land and then lightning will strike and we'll have a 17,000 mile line of flaming coast.

Either way something is getting covered in oil and blown.

It is a reference to a band with the same name as a Beatles song. Also, an avocado is involved.

Computer models have shifted slightly west.. Good for New Orleans, not good for the oil spill. (Need Bonnie to move in east of the spill, so that north winds will blow the oil out to sea.)

Schlock: Ok, nevermind, apparently there have been six...anyone know why they keep using the same name?

North Atlantic Ocean storms are named by the U.S. National Hurricane Center from the following lists. There have been six lists of names in use since 1979 (List I). The lists make use of names from both sexes. They are in alphabetical order and lists are recycled after six years, although the names of notable hurricanes are retired by the WMO on request. All letters of the alphabet are used except Q, U, X, Y and Z.[1][2]
Gender alternates both between adjacent names in a list (a male name is followed by a female one and vice versa) and between initial names between lists (if one year's list starts with a female name, the next year's list begins with a male one and vice versa).[2] Until 1979, the lists consisted of only women's names.
If the names on a list are all used, storms are then named after the letters of the Greek alphabet (Alpha, Beta, Gamma, etc.)[1] Greek names, unlike the names in the regular lists, cannot be retired. In case a storm reached the magnitude that might otherwise have led to retirement, the storm would be listed with the retired names with a footnote indicating the Greek letter would still be available for future storms.[3] The use of 21 names was established in reference to the 1933 Atlantic hurricane season which had been the record holder for the most storms in the region.[4] This record was broken during the 2005 season, which saw 28 storms (27 named and one unnamed), and saw the first use of the Greek alphabet to name storms.[5]

The name list has a six-year cycle. Every six years, the same names come up.

Except this year has a lot of new names because they retire names of major storms. And 2004 had a farkton of major storms.

And they all happened days to weeks after I moved to Tampa Bay. It was a great welcome to the state :-)

No, not 'out of sight'.. just not blown inshore into delicate marshes, if it comes in on the other side.

Better is always relative. In this bad situation, better means that residents on the Gulf Coast (and several hundred miles inland) don't see oil raining down on their houses, yards, streets, and businesses.

Yup.

Those are relatively common in forest fires if what I'm told is correct.

if I remember correctly it forms much in the same way a water spout or dust devil would, just made of fire, and they don't last very long.

I'm not so impressed with "Hurricane Bonnie". I think a firecane needs a better name. Here's the list of upcoming possibilities:

Colin
Danielle
Earl
Fiona
Gaston
Hermine
Igor
Julia
Karl
Lisa
Matthew
Nicole
Otto

I'd love to see a firecane named Igor...

Oh, I agree with that. I just think that a best-case scenario also benefits BP and perpetuates ignoring the deeper problems rather than leading (ideally) to robust solutions that eventually let us stop this kind of madness. Afterall, people were already reporting improvements to beaches just days after the present temporary cap was put in place (doubtful, given the amount of time it took for the oil to reach the shores in the first place).
