Oh, tell me, tell me where I'm going
I don't know where I've been
Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me
And then tell me again
My heart is breaking, my body's aching
And I don't know where to go
So tell me, tell me, won't you tell me
I've just gotta know

Line forms at the back Cris, we got some other shiat to take care of first.

It's gonna go for the warm water... and probably create another one right behind it.

It would be nice if things worked that way.

The south has already been hit with two tropical storms over the past three weeks.  Shiat's ridiculous.

uttertosh: #ALABAMASTRONG


You can only use that when you have to sharpie it into its path, looks like Alabama might actually be a target.

Christ--it might mean that Bowling Green is due for an actual massacre too.

was it last year that we had to have DoD people deny the viability of dropping a nuke on a hurricane? or was that Godzilla King of the Monsters?
 
2020-06-02 1:57:55 PM  
according to wundergound this is the earliest that we've seen a third named storm so early in hurricane season in records dating back to 1851

and this system has already killed 17 people

That is a fake map. It doesn't have the presidents black marker extending landfall into Alabama.

It's more of a Tropical Anxiety, really. The depression is more of a symptom.

I have a feeling this will become a monster storm of the century and utterly erase a major metropolitan area.

But even then it will be second page news compared to what else will be going on by then.
 
2020-06-02 2:10:02 PM  
Also of note:  storms that begin in the eastern Pacific normally head away from land.  Every once in a while they head east across Mexico, usually they peter out over the mountains.  This one kept it's low together enough to become a tropical storm - the water in the Gulf is historically warm.  Gonna be a long summer.
 
2020-06-02 2:10:04 PM  
OK. I gotta pay attention to this one.

I am at the point where I am willing to let Trump trying to nuke a tropical storm. The caveat is that he has to do a Major Kong on the bomb.

Well l, we're already in panic mode so it would just be more efficient than to try to re-panic before every crisis.

I can remember maybe four times in the last 20ish years it's happened, since the NOAA site has been up. very rare. Amanda crossed Guatamala in the highlands but missed most of the peaks and threaded itself b/tn the Sierra Madre Chiapas mountains and the Maya mountains. and still kept the low together through Mexico. Rather impressive.
