Weather spots to watch...

Hey there weather fans, boy has it been busy. Sometimes I get to watchin the radar to much and forget to post about it. Above is Tropical Storm Ingird. She finally got her stuff together to be called a tropical storm. From what I am reading is there is enough wind sheer to make this storm pretty weak over the next 3 or 4 days, but if it survives after Tuesday it may make a break for hurricane status and get some. So we will keep a eye on it.
Here is what is left of Hurricane Humberto. What is freakin amazing about this hurricane is how it came out of nowhere to be a hurricane. It took less than 18 hours, something like 14 hours to form and roll. Droppin rain all over Texas and now LA. I know there are naysayers about global warming, but we have seen some flip shit crazy hurricane action in the past five years. For cat 5's there have been 27 since reliable records have been kept in 1944. We have had 8 in the past 5 years. Thats a spike. That is some serious property damage and loss of life. Plus some damn fine at 4's, remember Andrew? I was on the ground in south FL 12 hours after Andrew rolled over. Complete devastation. But what gets me is how fast these things are intensifying. Look at Felix this year, it was a tropical depression and 30 hours later one of the most powerful hurricanes ever recorded. I know you don't want to hear global warming, but what else can be the answer? There is nothing we can really do about it. Mother nature is gonna slap our asses all she can. She has no mercy. What kills me is no one wants to have this debate. No one wants to get ready for it. For the next 20 years, the gulf and east coast are gonna get pummeled. You better be ready for it. Don't kid yourself into thinking it aint gonna happen, cause it's already started. The proof is in the data folks. Weather should be unpredictable, when you start to see patterns emerge, that means something strange is afoot at the Circle K.
