Maybe oil spills reduce hurricanes?

No, no, probably not, although I did receive my first BP Oil Spill denialist comment this morning. Nonetheless, we have had very little in the way of storms that might develop into hurricanes.

The best I can do for you now is Tropical Depression FIVE, which is sitting in the Gulf and heading for New Orleans, where it will be a very bad storm with heavy rain and wind … an actual “tropical storm” … but not enough of a problem to do much other than remember to close the windows and cancel the soft ball game or whatever one does out doors for entertainment in August in Coastal Louisiana.

TD Five is likely to turn into an actual tropical storm by tomorrow mid day or afternoon, and will reach landfall and move inland in a few days, dissipating well before next Wednesday.

    Oil spills reduce hurricanes? It sounds like a Big Oil ploy to charge the rest of the world for dumping oil in the oceans. :)
