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."
On this train of thought I remembered something I heard as a child and wondered what ever happened with the idea of "seeding" a storm?
Here where I live I swear we just got a rain band that smelled and felt like bands from a hurricane. I guess I am hypersensitive or something, but It dumped so much rain, you couldn't see the back fence, then blink, it was gone. I could smell the sea in the rain and wind.
