And maybe if we sprinkle pixie dust we will have more storms. really, when are they going to stop trying to justify their earlier predictions. It is one thing to not have the terrible storms they predicted, but continuing to justify what they said earlier just makes people trust them even less than they already do. Real storms should be spoken about, not WHAT IF'S. When the storms become reality and then threaten people then start to throw out the information, not we might have's.

I agree whole heartedly. The only ones that will be jumping on thier bandwagon will be the insurance companies justifing all the rate increases or policy dumping. We must protect thier profits.

Bill, I agree with you in entirety. NOAA and the Sentinel are glooms of doom. I really question my sanity because I read the local newspaper. Unfortunately it is the only one in town. Well, maybe not, there is always the National Enquirer to pick up on local and world happenings. They have also predicted a terrible season as did the Sentinel. Perhaps they have the same editor!

I absolutely agree. Don't get me wrong, I couldn't not be HAPPIER that we are having a quiet season thus far, but for the love of GOD, who is doing who between those 2 institutions? Talk about justification for rape AND pillage.

The rest of the season will be high in the low to mid-uppers with a 50% chance.

Dear Hurricane God, Please take my neighbor's fence this time and leave mine alone. I offer you all the roofs in Baldwin Park as fair exchange. Thank you.

And maybe if we all hold hands and wish really hard we can end world hunger, and if we would just understand the terrorists point of view they would like us then, and if we would just be nicer to everyone else we could end all of the violent crime in the world.
