Default A Storm Named Maria

Not just any storm, mind you, a storm of the hurricane guise.

Briefly, and more importantly, why do we care? WELL, here's the thing:

The current track this hurricane is now on is damn near identical to that of Irma, and will be traversing the same seas and wrecked lands. Those poor people will potentially, and probably be hit again. Es no bien.
Here's what the National Weather Service put out recently (I also added a picture of Marina because her name is similar to the hurricane's):




Moreover, the storm is projected to become stronger and is (again) in favorable conditions facilitated by not too much dry air or wind sheer.

Please feel free to update this thread with whatever Maria/Marina content. Bless you so much.

Seeing it hit the Carolinas as of now. Jose hitting the NE, and possibly coming back to merge with Maria. Too far out though.

Yeah, I'm really interested to see what Jose ends up doing. Above all else, Jose's presence could potentially steer Maria directly into the North Carolina region. WAY too far out for me to make any speculative calls like that, but this will be a storm to watch as some models have it projected to get quite strong (920mb ish).

I'm sure they were all paying 5K a year for Hurricane insurance, considering there haven't been bad storms the last 10 years.

If you think something like that tugs on my heartstrings like you...you'd be wrong.

I'm a man.

TIL having empathy for people who lost everything, and maybe a family member, in a different country makes me a girl. #girlswhocare

I admire his ability to abstain, and direct that energy to something else. Everyone looks for an escape. His happens to be running 2000 miles a year.

As for empathy....Places like H-T GDD and the internet as a whole fixed me on that **** years ago. We all will go through stuff. I just want to be left alone to live my life as i see ****. A bunch of **** stung everywhere doesnt really give me many feels. I guess it looks impressive to some though..


I pulled in front of someone today after passing them on the left on a two lane road. I was TRAINS ahead of them. They still flashed me.

**** this planet. We are so devoid of meaningful common ground and community its not worth worrying about anyway.
