    The “average” in this graph is really a crock, since they name more storms now than they did in the ’40s when they didn’t have satellites to detect storms forming in the mid-Atlantic.

      You beat me to it kid! I wanted to rant about that BS! Franklin is at 39N and not tropical at all! Earlier they named a storm that came from the Northwest rather than across the Atlantic! I am expecting Xavier to hit my place tonight at 35N and it originated in the Pacific Northwest! or Canada! Probably the same one that dumped on Oklahoma!

    remember a few years ago when they changed the USDA zone map???

    ……and then everyone had their new tropical plants froze out last year………..LOL

    Don’t these idiots know why the citrus industry is hurting in Florida?

    • Mike Davis says:

      In 1989 I planted according to the Guide and lost most of the plants that winter!

    • Chris Burgr says:

      Yes, the “new” map is a joke. I live in central FL and I can tell you my zone has not changed like the map states. Over the last three winters I have lost a lot of plants and trees that would have survived if I were in the “new” zone.

    You heard it here first, that they would start naming storms at 40N!!

    It’s the same with sunspot counting. We now count specks that would not have been visible to observers during the LIA. They are compiling data that is not comparable, and is (purposely?) misleading when they use it for comparison.
