I just got done watching an outstanding documentary by the National Geographic Channel on Hurricane Season 2004....i don't know if they'll rerun it (I'm sure they will) but everyone should be on the look out for it (I'll also try to find when it will play again).
I know this is slightly off-topic, but since the boards are dead, ima post on the main page...i urge anyone who can watch this to do so, as there was a mobile doppler team which made some fascinating discoveries about the nature of winds within the eyewall....basically they discovered that along with the 'sustained' winds, which are of course quite strong, there are random 'super' (my words) winds which are also contained in the eyewall and which basically can produce damage like that produced by tornadoes (where one building can be totally demolished, yet the one next door is left relatively in tact). I hope this new phenomenon can be much more fully explored as we move forward...really, this was not your typical "weather channel" crapola...this was some serious research and after last year, explains the 'hit and miss' damage we saw so frequently.
in addition...they used the phrase "The Season From Hell" twice...
but i didn't see no credits to LI Phil at the end...oh well...if we can avoid a repeat of last year, i'll let the phrase go out there for anyone who wants to use it...i guess i wasn't the only one who felt this way...
lets at least hope things are quiet until Memorial Day this season...
