And Then There Was One

Hurricane Bill, currently a category 4 hurricane, appears to be on a course to skim the New England coastline and head into the North Atlantic. As Bill heads further north, the waters will be cooler and he will most likely be downgraded as he travels north.

Of course, as we all know, hurricanes have a mind of their own and do as they choose. I know that's humanizing and giving intelligence to a force of nature which has no brain to think with. If you've lived through an active hurricane season, or with just one hurricane, you know that they seemingly move according to no reason that we humans are aware of. So you know and I know that there is no human (or other) intelligence involved, but geez louise! They do make strange moves!

Just saying that although the Hurricane Center thinks this is the most likely path, Bill can end up anywhere. Those of us in Florida are hoping he keeps moving northward.

Ana, as you may know, lost strength and dissipated. Claudette made landfall in northwest Florida as a tropical storm.
