All Storms Are Now Rare Behemoths

With much of the Eastern Seaboard in the path of a rare behemoth storm, residents of the nation’s most densely populated corridor contemplated whether to heed dire warnings of torrential rain, high winds and up to 2 feet of snow.

Amid Dire Forecast, Sandy a Hurricane Again – ABC News

In 1886, the US was hit by seven hurricanes – including two major hurricanes. Storms were not rare when CO2 was much lower.

  1. Am I crazy or does it look like a chunk of dry air has destroyed the eastern side of this system? The center has formed a tight center, no hole, but it looks like it’s losing a lot of it’s moisture source. At this rate, I don’t see it becoming a Frankenstorm. It will be an extra tropical, low pressure that meets up with another low. Not unusual stuff. Am I wrong?

    Job 40:15 “Behold, Behemoth,
    which I made as I made you;
    he eats grass like an ox.

    There they go, getting all religious on us again. ABC must stand for A Bunch of Christians, after all, they were the official network of the Messiah for the 2008 election.

    The “storm of the century” has just been downgraded to a tropical storm. Maybe it could revive, but until then why make such a huge deal about it? They keep talking about the “worst case scenarios” as if that’s what already happened. It’s like in socal every time we get a little patter of rain it might as well be called a storm of the century. It never just rains anymore in this country, and we don’t have storms anymore, it’s always mega-storms, mega tropical storms, tropical storms of the century. We’re going to have some major pouring, get out the umbrellas!

    The message that EVERYBODY should heed is the “Cry Wolf” syndrome.

    Consider Darwin Australia 1974.

    There had been previous years with dire warnings of impending destruction which came to nothing.

    There were several incidents in late 1974 when warnings of impending doom turned into false alarm – And so for a few days leading into Christmas Eve 1974 the people of Darwin were again subjected to alarming forecasts which all promptly ignored because it seemed another BS news story – the difference this time Tracy formed and destroyed in less than a week.

    Google Tracy 1974 Darwin to see a major small City blown away – major tornado type destruction.

    How safe was CO2 in 1974 ?

    Think of it. They named this storm Sandy, with an ‘S’. That means they are pretending there have been 18 hurricanes or tropical storms worth mentioning this year!
    This year when not a palm tree has bent or lawn chair overturned.

    No overturned lawn chairs here. I put them in the shed.

  7. Andy DC says:

    There is no doubt that there have been an unprecedented number of CAT .6 subtropical systems masquerading as hurricanes.

    Two feet of the thing of the past? Oh my!
