  1. Back in the 1960s I was a grad student in meteorology at Florida State U and my fellow students would have been so excited by such a storm and done much mathematcal analysis. Indeed a few were not really happy unless a hurricane or tornado was bearing down somewhere near Tallahassee! One of them later became a pilot who flies into hurricanes for reconnaissance.
    I note none of the media reporting I heard ever made mention of “climate change” even though the math models have predicted more frequent occurrences of large storms. Indeed Harper’s magazine reported that despite the unusual drought, heat and storms in the US this year, coverage of that issue is way down. The fossil fuel industries rule!
