Gut Rumbles

panic! Panic!

The news media are flogging this story for all it's worth, which isn't really much in MY humble opinion. It just looks like a big rainstorm to me.

We get those all the time, all summer long in the South, especially along the coast. It may be "tropical" in nature, but it's still no more than a windy, wet blow. I don't believe that WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!

It damn sure ain't no killer hurricane.


It's part of the program, Acid. Every blower is going to be a mega story for the MSM, so they can blame global warming for the "extreme" weather. They'll do anything to confiscate my truck!

Hope it gets pulled up the Ohio Valley. My garden need the rain.

On the flip side, Allison did a real number on Houston a few years back.; flooding took out most of the medical center. Seems most power transformers and such are in the basement, not good when your flooded midway up the first floor.

Tropical storms are nothing to sneeze at. They can kick some major ass as well. We ARE all gonna die, but not becuase of a little thunderstorm, but becuase of the leftist bitches whining their way around Washington these days.

Yep. The weathermen are in that rock and hard place situation. Back in the 90's here on the west central coast there was one hell of a strom that rolled in off the gulf. Weather people warned but no one listened. Did millions in damages. Weatherpeople took it in the ass because the do gooders screamed that the warnings were not "dire" enough. So now they get excited over a mild blow.

Curtis, you just made my day! That was sooooo funny!

I used to live on the Texas coast. We've had more damage from freak winds than tropical storms.

The thing that gets me is that when the locals are leaving- because a good hurricane is coming- the surfers are moving in because of the waves. Either way, you're going to loose all the valuables you left in the house.

Us Yankees up here in the Northeast are due for a good Hurrican right about now, it seems. I remember quite a few coming up this way while I was in elementary school, but it seems to have been over 6 years since we've had one, let alone a "good" one.
