global warming
I don't think HPF 120 is a strong enough Hurricane Protection Factor (HPF). We clearly need HPF 1000 to make a difference.

Have we invented some sort of hurricane repellant
I don't think any storm out of Africa has made its way to the Carribean this year. Seems strange.

This next disturbance might change that. 

Idalia from a few weeks back developed in the Pacific and jump over Latin America to pound NW and Central Florida. That seems strange too.

I was watching the local news and the hurricane expert noted that system in the Pacific and that he was really keeping a close eye on it.

I was taken aback a little as I've not seen that (albeit in only 3.5 years here).

He was absolutely right on.

Lots of rain with this one, and storm surge in all of those barrier islands.

yeah gonna be a wet weekend @FearlessF ... the good news is Florence removed all the weaker trees five years ago this week... the bad news is every tree that relied on those weaker trees to protect it from full value of the wind- are gone... 

i don't know what that means^.... an arborist friend of mine was saying it and it sounded insightful... 

i thought for certain we were going to get slammed this season with a major storm... water temperatures inland, in the sound, at the beach and even offshore were record high... it's not that there was any earth shattering hot days, it's that it was so consistently hot this year.... 

curious, though, my pool dropped from 98deg to 81deg in the last two weeks- mostly due to two single nights that touched the 50s....

Been thinking more about nuclear power.

What about Nuke Peaker plants? Is that feasible? Smaller plants to subsidize the green stuff during peak demand?

Where could they be built, and is it worth it? Obviously needs to be near a water supply, for cooling.

Peaker plants need to start up quickly, nuclear plants or coal plants using steam turbines take a long time to get rolling.

Peaker plants today are all or nearly all natural gas, they operate like jet eingines, because they are jet engines, and fire up about as quickly.  They have no need to heat steam to a certain pressure/T.

Hydrostorage is another option, but rarely used so far.

Hybrid nuke/gas? Get it going on gas and then flip the switch?
