    Actually, I’m not meterologist, but I think numerous tropical depressions are normal. They don’t all become hurricanes nor do all hurricanes make landfall. Nor do we pay as much attention to them on the west coast. Till now, of course.

    Or it could be global warming. But that’s not real, is it, Mr. President.

    Well, nobody ever pays attention to East Pacific hurricanes, but there are typically one or two of those out there at any time during hurricane season. They tend to survive for a long time because there are no substantial land masses. Which is why nobody pays attention to them.

    Speaking of hurricanes, there is a fundraiser to benefit gulf area schools and Bay area schools on the 28th at Bambuddha Lounge. Check out http://www.donorschoose.org/event_bayarea.php for more info.

    I too think it is unusual to have so many hurricane’s in the Pacific and the Atlantic and Gulf.It is called Global warming,and the more we use our gas burning trucks and cars and don’t change our lifestyle…it will happen more and more. We are killing ourselves..and our planet.We must take responsibility now and led,each one of us,a more simple life..walk[get some of the lard off our butts] revitalize our cities and plant our crops more earth friendly.We should buy from business’s that support the Earth and are eco friendly..and recycle..not just metals..but clothing,everything..learn to barter,trade services,volunteer. No more I syndrome…it has always been a we/us world…and a sharing,caring,needy one.New Orleans is a perfect chance for us to share and give and help and begin.

    As of 4 pm, Rita is a category 5 storm with 165-mph winds, located 300 miles west of Key West, Florida. Rita is moving west at 12 mph, and will move out into the central Gulf over the next 24-48 hours. Yet another one for the record books. This is the first time in recorded history that two Cat 5 Hurricanes have developed in the Gulf of Mexico in the same year.
