Once again another baseless generalization:

weather moves from West to East.

In the US some mild weather perhaps drifts across the continent in a west to east direction.

The REALLY BAD STUFF nearly always starts down "south of the border" and moves more in a northerly direction, entering the country illegally and without permission, paying no taxes, and causing horrific disruptions of our social welfare systems.

There ain't no "tropics"1 in the US, and we can do without all those "tropical storms." The current administration refuses to do anything about them, but we're gonna get some real environmental progressives in office and put up a real fence at the next election.

1 Except in the far Northwest where all the mudslides happen.

John

Actually, a folk tradition has always been that Nebraska is responsible for the northward drift of bad weather into Kansas.

Perhaps you've hit on a better answer, that it's not Nebraska, but that

          Nebraska ^Canada Sucks.

Somehow though, I doubt that our extremely talented and capable weather persons will find that a credible explanation.

If fire is weather, now the Georgia fire has linked up with the Florida fire and has burned over 1,000 sq. miles.

America's largest city park, Griffiths Park has burned down sparing only 3 landmark buildings.

Catalina Island is on fire and all 4,000+ people have been evacuated.

Fire season starts later in the summer.

Looks like the same attacker of the help area has now redirected the robot to post as a GUEST to the main forum.

One suggested possible way to keep the troublesome GUESTS out permanently is to insist on total membership then - and for those who cannot keep a cookie on their PC - they will just have to put in their password for each post.

Just a theoretical suggestion, Max - but then I don't know just how much work rewriting that will involve.

If I had to enter a password, that would mean I could no longer post. big whoop. Its happened to me at least a dozen times on other forums.

If I tried to recover my password since my email changed whey would say no such account exists and if I tried to register they claim my IP address or user name is already taken.

Its a perfect catch 22.

Weather may be safe to talk about...

but Tallahassee is completely engulfed by a fine yellow/blue/gray haze and my eyes are burning and my throat is irritated. Old people have to stay indoors. It is awful and so dry...eleven inches of rain below the year need already. About 200 fires in Florida and The Okefenokee Swamp is now the Okefenokee Barbecue. The Florida Folk Festival will have a fine coating of ash like it did in '02 when Offer was there...

But hey,,,it could be worse. Hurricane season starts in three weeks!

(full poem)

Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Subject: Lyr Add: LITTLE WEATHERMAN (parody of BEGGARMAN)
From: Don(Wyziwyg)T
Date: 11 May 07 - 08:01 PM

THE LITTLE WEATHERMAN
Tune "The Little Beggarman" (Irish Trad.)


I am a little weatherman, you'll see me on TV,
I stand upon a box because I'm only five foot three,
I smile into the camera, to communicate to you,
That I really know me job, and every word I say is true,
        Of all the trades that's going, meteorology's the one,
        With the greatest chance of failure, ah! But that is half the fun,
        It really doesn't matter if I cock it up you see,
        For, when I'm on you're all out in the kitchen making tea.

Oh! The mysteries of forecasting are really quite obscure,
But the use of Doppler radar makes prediction very sure,
I forecast dry and sunny, over twenty three degrees,
And it rains so hard the water level's well above your knees,
        Take a tip, take the day off, take the car, get out of town,
        Pay a visit to the seaside, and you're sure to come back brown,
        You may boast about your suntan, if you really feel you must,
        But, unless they're blind or stupid, they will realise it's rust.

I stood upon me little box, one dark and stormy night,
And I told ten million viewers "There's no hurricane in sight",
Next morning, scattered far and wide were fifteen million trees,
I must be the country's worst case of the foot in mouth disease,
        And since that day I've tried right hard, to cover my backside,
        I predict the worst scenario, whatever might betide,
        For repeating that fiasco is the last thing I would wish,
        So TOMORROW WILL BE ROTTEN, and goodnight from Michael Fish.
