I get it. You wrote Cat shiatting land and it was too close to the number 5 being used like an S. Hmm, interesting.

NOLA residents, *now* would be a good time to leave.

I'm no Tom Skilling, but that looks like a typical tropical storm, not a whole lot to worry about. Certainly doesn't seem to indicate it will be hurricane strength at all.

The 'H' over NOLA means hurricane.

So "S" is storm?
H for hurricane...
And D for...devastation?

/or just drizzle?

basicstock: Now is not the time to talk about global warming.....


That's what I said right after Houston had four feet of rain!

People kept saying "Now isn't the time to talk about climate change." So I asked them if September 20th was acceptable.

But they said no, still too soon. They insisted I choose a later date. We finally agreed on Friday, October 6th.

I knew we should have stuck with September 20th...

Yeah, but "Hurricane" doesn't mean "disaster". Unless it really picks up power in the gulf, we're looking at a Cat-1 storm.

"Very dangerous winds will produce some damage: Well-constructed frame homes could have damage to roof, shingles, vinyl siding and gutters. Large branches of trees will snap and shallowly rooted trees may be toppled. Extensive damage to power lines and poles likely will result in power outages that could last a few to several days."

So the odds are the damage will be mild. The other hurricanes that hit were much much more severe.

That's like saying the Sandy Hook massacre isn't that bad because of the severity of the Vegas massacre.


Interesting analogy

The 'H' over NOLA means hurricane.

A Cat 1 isn't really all that bad, though

Allison did $9 in damage in 2011. It was never even a hurricane. Almost twice the damage that Isabel did, which was a full Category 5 in 2003.

You were saying?


Katrina did $108 billion in damage

/FFS, you want me to say a Cat 1 has potential to do damage? Yes, it does, but typically less
