Is Katrina just the Beginning for 2005?

NOAA predicts that there is a 100% chance of above-normal tropical storm activity as of August. If they are right, there could be another hit or two to the US mainland but where is the big question. True, most of the storms peter out before they make landfall in the US but, when they do it, well...you've seen it. Mother Nature is wonderful in her ability to show us who's boss, no matter how many people are on their knees praying. Or should that be, because so many are on their knees looking for a higher source without one to be found? I wonder whether Bush can pull something together before the next disaster hits so the effects can be more or less minimized.

Ha-ha. Okay, I am off the floor from that last attempt at humour. The SOB is a miserable failure at everything he does. Reminds me of the quote from some actor about Claudia Schiffer. Something along the lines of she's so dumb she'd get lost in a revolving door even with directions. Reminds me of Bush. I'm not sure how dumb he is but he certainly has proven he can't do anything right.

Okay, back to the storms. NOAA also says in that report that there is a 0% chance of the period from August to November of seeing below-normal activity.

To that winning brigade in the White House, though, NOAA is just a bunch of bureaucrats. Musn't let science get in the way of our faith-based presidency, eh?
