And now, back to our regularly-scheduled programming.

Of course the reason it is so important to be a little silly is to balance out what is always in the back of our minds, and what we can't ever quite forget, about why tropical weather is such a big deal: it poses such an extreme risk to life and property, and more so for parts of Central America. So, from the 10amTWO, I just wanted to post this as a reminder of what Stan did last year, and the posibility of the same type of danger so early in the 2006 season:

"EVEN IF A DEPRESSION DOES NOT FORM...HEAVY RAINS COULD SPREAD ACROSS PORTIONS OF SOUTHEASTERN MEXICO DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. THESE RAINS COULD CAUSE LIFE-THREATENING FLASH FLOODS AND MUD SLIDES...ESPECIALLY IN MOUNTAINOUS TERRAIN."
