Bush's last ditch effort for the end of the year.

Looks like this one is heading for the Atlantic coast. The Haliburton Hurricane Machine must be perfected. Soon New York will be obliterated.



PS. No offense to the New Yorkers, but we had to get Hillary somehow. Ya'll are just in the way.

Uh oh. The crazy guy's predictions may come true. If this storm does what the guy said it would, I'm going to become extremely religious in the next couple weeks. If this is truly the last storm of the year, it is supposed to become huge and obliterate everything along I-4 as it makes it's way across FL

(Not my words, just what I heard)

There was this guy who came in every Tuesday who ordered food and while he waited he would spout off predictions. Said he would talk to God at 3 a.m. and He would show him the future. Made a thread about it a while ago that I would update with his new stuff but I guess it was deleted for being too old. Some funny stuff and one of them was the last hurricane of the year would desimate FL and would follow a major interstate road going east to west.

He had some funny ones.

Well,ummm, no offense but I tend to be somewhat skeptical of most so-called "prophets"and I would imagine that most other arfcommers would tend to be skeptical of this type of stuff as well. So, in light of that, here's a little test for your friend (or whoever he is): Before we all start really worrying about this latest hurricane and the doom and gloom it might bring....let's first analyze your prophet guys prognostication record so far as it stands today. Has any of his other predictions come true and, if so, how many came true and what were the results of each of his true predictions? I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm trying to separate the false prophets from the real ones and the only way to really do that is to look at each individuals "prophet/prognostication/prediction record" or, in other words (to use a sports analogy), what does his win-loss-tie column look like?

BTW, I'm actually trying to be serious (yet still very skeptical) here and I'm not trying to flame you or your prophet friend and I'm also not trying to be a troll or anything. I'm just a very, very, very, very skeptical observer.

nope - Zeta is not the end of the Greek alphabet... the next one - God forbid - would be Eta. Then Theta, then Iota, then Kappa... then we just sit in awe that we have to keep going...

From www.nws.noaa.gov

Has there ever been a Tropical Storm so late in the year before?
in 1954, Hurricane Alice2 developed on Dec 30th and lasted until Jan 6, 1955. Alice2 reached Category 1 hurricane intensity.
In 1978, Sub-Tropical Storm 1 developed Jan 18 and lasted until Jan 23. This system reached Tropical Storm intensity.

Also, the storm poses NO threat to the mainland US

still....geez...let it go already!

How long do the hurricane cycles last? Because there was a 23 year break between the first two, and then a 28 year break between this one and the last one. IIRC the cycles did last something like 25 years.

But before about 1970 we didn't have good enough satellites, or satellite coverage or sophisticated weather bouys to find these sorts of storms way out in the ocean.

All my posts about this are jokes. While I always like to listen to him to see what he can come up with, I've never taken him seriously. If you had seen my previous posts about this you'd see some of the funny stuff he's said and how we all joked about it. Actually haven't seen him in a while and this post just reminded me it.

If another one spawns next week, I nominate it as the 1st one of the 2006 season. The 2005 season is OVER and there's been WAY too many already.

Well, it might as well come on down your way because y'all should know how to deal with 'em by now. Lord knows y'all have had plenty of practice over the last couple of years.
