As if anyone needed another reminder of what hurricanes can do, Fox 13's Howard Shapiro just mentioned ELENA. Came up, made a hard right, hit West Central Florida. Ric's right: lead by example, don't preach. People don't react as well to others telling them what they *should* be doing, they are more inclined to follow. Remember, people like leaders, not screamers.
On a humorous note: Fox 13 just gave 3 examples of people's ideas of how to stop hurricanes: 1) Coat the entire ocean with OLIVE OIL. 2) Direct giant FANS to blow them in the other direction. 3) Use nuclear warheads to blow them up - which the director of the NHC didn't like at all, as he said, "Hurricanes are bad enough without them being radioactive."
Okay, how could you NOT laugh at those insane ideas? With the exception being, maybe #3 not being so funny, more stupid.
