Here we go again: Hurricane Rita

Postby NY Yankees Fan 2004 » Tue Sep 20, 2005 9:52 pm

Oh boy, it pains me to see another gulf hurricane. This season has been unreal. Anways, I have been following this thing ever since it was a tropical wave.. It is now a Cat 2 Hurricane and will only strenghen with all of that warm Gulf of Mexico Moisture. Luckily it will not hit New Orleans because of that strong ridge..

But a Texas hit is very likely. Hopefully it missed Houston/Galvaston..

Look at this thing :-t

I believe Madison lives somewhere in Texas, not sure though.

Anyways, I hope it doesn't turn out like Katrina. That would be a huge tragedy. :-/

People who live near the area, stay safe!

It's amazing how we're the most powerful country in the world, and how we as humans proclaim some profound control over our environment, but when nature strikes, all we can do is run.

That is not a comment aimed at putting down the US, by the way.

Yep, but I'm north enough that it won't reach me. Fort Worth. I do have relatives in Galveston though, and they have already notified everyone there will be an immediate evacuation at 6 AM Wednesday. My relatives are already on their way up here. Not crazy enough to to try to ride it out. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Part of the problem is what we have controlled. Due to global overheating these Gulf wasters are an average of two degrees higher than normal. While 2 degrees Fahrenheit might not seem much to your comfort level in a room, it makes a large difference in our weather.

The thing is, it's not in our control.

What do you mean by "it"?
Understand that I was only referring to affecting a portion of the intensity of the event. At this point in time Hurricanes are inevitable. Since the dawn of the industrial revolution emissions of greenhouse gases have heated the earth and it's atmosphere at to high a rate.
