Thank FSM that this is a once in a lifetime occurrence and that everything is fine with the climate because it hasn't changed at all.

Oh, and there is more than a month left in hurricane season.

You may think that TD-22 would become Alpha.

You'd be wrong.

Here's Subtropical Storm Alpha, all set to hit...Portugal.

TD-22 should be Tropical Storm Beta before the weekend is out.

There is another area of low pressure in the North Atlantic that may become a storm again, but since that's the remnants of Paulette it'll just pick that name back up.

TD22 didn't get called Alpha because the hurricane hunter that was heading out to do readings got hit by lightning and it knocked out their radar so they had to turn back.

No, they're going to a bar to get very, very, VERY drunk.

I'm pretty sure guys who surf 100' waves aren't going to be bothered by a storm unless that storm knocks the surf down.

After Omega, they finally open the forbidden book found buried in the obelisk. It is said that the Final Storm will come to sweep away the world when you speak its name and all who hear it shall perish.

Instead of trying to think up a bunch of new names, how about we just say "Hey you"?
 
2020-09-18 2:22:59 PM  
Keep in mind that, despite already starting to use the Greek Alphabet, we have only had 8 hurricanes this year with only 2 at a category 3 or higher. In 2005, we also had 8 hurricanes by this date, but 4 of them were category 3 or higher (2 of them were cat 5).
So we have more storms, but the overall intensity has been less.

So far.

/It'll be neat to have storms names Mu and Pi, but I hope we don't need those names.
