The season sure didn't waste any time!

Tropical Storm Arthur kicked it off on the first official day.

I remember we commented last year on the same coincidence, we had the first one form on opening day. Funny how the weather is cooperating with it's schedule for a change.

One refreshing story I read yesterday...that the much-hyped hurricane predictions from the forecasters is useless. My feelings exactly. What purpose is there in an ominous prediction of 12 major hurricanes, or whatever number? All of them or none of them could impact me, or the prediction could be a total bust, as it has been the past couple of years.

You can google to read the story. Here is a currently active link for it.

But Dave, the media needs scary headlines! With Anna Nicole gone what will they hype to get readers and viewers if they don't talk about the world might end tomorrow?

Cheers, Neil

I didn't look, but I can guarantee that on the weather channel today (and on local channels all along the U.S. coast) they had some idiot standing on a beach proclaiming the hurricane season open. He or she looked at the sea with a furrowed brow and scanned the horizon for the nearest cloud.

These are the same nitwits who stand on street corners in blizzards, telling us it is dangerous to be driving.

I only posted it here, and didn't go to the beach yesterday.

Seriously, I hope the forecasts are wrong again and it is a peaceful summer. Thankfully, the last two years have been way off. I guess after going through a bad one, I take more notice of when the season starts.

If that is what you think Dave try living in the caribbean
The news here are as funny as Mad TV with their forecast,
What I hate the most is that every year, they told us there are going to be an great number of Huricanes, on apocalyptics proportions, and never happens.
Just a Note
As far as I remember there have never been a "Hurricane" on June, they all happen after July...

The funniest thing to me, is when they have the reporters standing on the beach too. They always have light weight windbreakers that flap in the wind, and a flimsy cap that flies off. Most times it is just a typical windy day until they add the dramatic effects. I saw a (I won't mention the name) news crew doing this once, and we hadn't even had a small craft advisory issued yet.

Sometimes, it takes "play it up" to a different level. That being said, we still need to be aware of a potential storm threat.
