Weather thoughts

At the gym today, I learned that the latest hurricane (Rita) was up to a Category 4 (they keep a television on either Fox News or CNN, today it was the former but the coverage wasn't particularly annoying, so I guess a hurricanes is a hurricane); just looked at Yahoo News and see that it's a 5. Folks on my FL have been talking about it, some from a frighteningly close vantage point (hope you guys all keep safe!).

When I watch TV, it's usually late at night and it's usually documentaries. Discovery, Discovery Times, Science Channel, History Channel, History International, National Geographic Channel. (I <3 my DirecTV... :)) They have all been really heavy on the Scary Weather shows lately, which is unsurprising. There was a show on the hurricane that hit Galveston in 1900, scary stuff. Hell, they've already got shows on Katrina out, which seems a little quick and inevitably incomplete, but whatever.

Anyway, on some show on one of these channels, someone (an expert of some sort) was saying that his theory is that we are at the end of an unusually mild period (of centuries?) when it comes to storms in the Gulf. I haven't heard that elsewhere, and I'm not sure that the weather patterns really support this, but it's hard to tell because the coverage is so much more detailed these days.
