Who knew that altering the thermodynamic equilibrium of the planet on a massive scale would be bad?

The question on Gamma is will the storm get to the Gulf of Mexico before the high pressure ridge building behind the last one gets there and blocks it first. If that happens, the storm is going to rain out on the Yucatan peninsula, if it can get to the gulf it can strengthen further.

Gamma wound up very quickly for a storm of that size, the only real it doesn't look even more impressive is land interaction. The center is moving onto the Yucatan now.

It's just a natural reaction...to an artificial source pumping millions of tons of extra CO2 into the atmosphere.

Just watch Levi Cowan's Tropical Tidbits report on YouTube. He posts every night at 8:30 whenever there are active storms/invests, and will explain it all in great technical detail. Brilliant guy, I believe was just hired by NOAA. And of course, actually read the NHS discussion reports, don't just look at the map and freak out.

We decided to get the hell out and have gone from NYC down to our beach house near Progreso  Mexico.  Not sure if you can tell from the map but the storm Gamma  has already started affecting the Yucatán peninsula quite dramatically. We Will be fine because we have a house built to American standards, but the local population who are living in not even tin shacks, right at the mangrove waterline will be in serious harms way.  This part of the world on these barrier islands, means we have the ocean in front and the Ria behind.  We donate to local charities to help and if you feel so inclined, search for the Yucatán Giving Outreach.

Gamma? That can either be very good...

Tropical depression can be treated with a sing-a-long of "Jump In The Line".

Please stand by while equilibrium is restored. Thank you.

In light of current events, we're in desperate need of another person to distribute disposable absorbent towels to suffering brown people.

While I am not hoping for any of these storms to do any damage, it would be pretty amazing if we got through the entire Greek alphabet too.

7 billion people around the world laughing at Trump right now probably isn't going to help.

When the local population is devastated and starving, you can be the local warlords/commanders.
Sounds great!

2020 keeps getting worse. These new things called "hurricanes" are truly frightening.

It depends on the American standards to which your house was built and the honesty of your contractor.  

As for the people in tin shacks:  the actual tin shacks will not hold up well.  Those little cubes built of cement block would be the very last things to get blown away.  If the wind angles just the right way, flooding can be a problem.

I have a Honduran ex GF. We met very casually here in New Orleans and oh my god she turned my sad-sack bachelor kitchen into a full service restaurant. I was amazed at my good fortune and told her so every day. She was among those "feed your man" type ladies and OMG it was so great. We're still friends (she just texted me this morning) but she prefers San Francisco. Am currently eating Bachelor Chow in New Orleans. :(

Don't forget all the extra CO2 absorbed by the oceans.

Peninsula just can't catch a break.

I had a Puerto Rican GF. Was a total princess but had the looks to get away with it.
