    Apparently they're trying to make hurricanes less intimidating by naming them after strippers.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    They are calling for one of the worst storm seasons ever. Honestly though its just a crap shot if they make landfall.

    Could they name one Jeantel after the witness in the Martin/Zimmerman trial?

    The real danger is the sustained winds blowing glitter around and putting an eye out.


    The relief concert will be funded by wadded up singles thrown on stage.

    Still early but:

    Once Chantal crosses Hispaniola and enters the Bahamas late this week, the trough of low pressure pulling the
    storm to the northwest is expected to lift out.

    It is unclear at this point whether or not this trough will be strong enough to pull Chantal out to sea, or whether
    the storm might be forced back to the northwest into the U.S. East Coast by high pressure building in.

    Yeah, way too early. That path will probably change 10 more times between now and the weekend, lol.
