Hurricane Florence

September 14, 2018 |

At this writing, Hurricane Florence is slowing making its way into North Carolina.  Thankfully, the storm weakened considerably to a Category 1 hurricane before coming ashore, but its effects on the ocean swells and its remaining power still make it a very dangerous storm, likely to bring damaging winds and severe flooding to a wide area.  So if you are in its path, please heed any official warnings about evacuation or preparation.

for gosh sakes, do not go out into it!  At the link is more information about the storm from Fox News, including video footage of weather reporter Griff Jenkins showing the power of the storm by standing on a dock in Morehead City, North Carolina, as it blows in.  I work in the media and I still don’t understand why weather reporters try to convince us that we should never go out into a dangerous storm by going out and standing in the middle of a dangerous storm.

Just a thought: since the Washington Post tried to blame President Trump for Hurricane Florence being a category 5 storm when it was out at sea, are they going to give him credit for it dropping to a category 1 before it came ashore in America?  

I also wonder if the damage in the hurricane’s aftermath is as we all hope and pray less than predicted, will Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez credit Trump for that?  It seems only fair considering he blamed Trump for all the future damage from the storm’s aftermath several days ago when it was still out to sea.

    The idea that we have some kind of power over bad weather is simply superstition. What about the major hurricanes in the 1800's and early 1900's. The Galveston hurricane in 1900 killed about 1000 people in the USA alone.
