HURRICANE SCORECARD PREDICTIONS COME TO AN END


The final 112th hurricane prediction, by Skyepony, managed to arrive.
With her, we complete the long and fun track for the 2014 Hurricane Season predictions for Wunderground.

I thank everyone who participated this year.

Today we open the door for the 2014 Pacific Hurricane season.
As the prediction have ended we are now going to start the real tracking for the winners.

112 members of wunderground were registered this year.



As the creator of the chart, I feel proud of doing this pro wunderground, a way of getting people together to interact, have something to talk about and enjoy while doing it.
Im also responsible for keeping up with it, right now Im preparing to leave to South Carolina in few minutes, yet I had to take the time to complete and unload the final chart in a blog as I'm doing right now.

I wish everyone a happy tracking and a safe adventure along the way

Hi Max, hope you are OK. Sounds like you are really working hard. "Enjoy" your first pay check. I use BOA too, but am not a "fan" of their's. Have read many articles that they pay no Federal income tax because of their foreign tax shelters, even though they make billions in profits! But they are not alone in this practice, just Google this you'll see.


Meh. It's a loophole in the tax code. If there was a legal way for Americans to escape taxes, millions would take that loophole. Banks act the same way, well any business really.

Just like HP cutting 50,000 jobs over the past few weeks, and gaining money and higher stock prices.

There is a severe thunderstorm watch for my area.
Hmm... I seea beautiful sun out there, dry grounds.

Astro... Even long before we both figured there are no BOAs here in Dillon I'm sure the residents are and have been aware of this for a long time...
Might wanna give a note to them one of these days... There is ample room here in Radford Boulevard to open up one.

In Norwalk we have... Hmm let's see... 5 banks of America...

I'm happy for tomorrow's first check of mine... Can't wait. This is a natural state I'm sure.

By the looks of it, Dillon, SC isn't a big enough town to host a BOA. South Carolina is pretty well stocked with BOA branches.

SC is a lot better than Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi (which is like bare), and Arkansas.

Looking at the distribution, BOA seems to be a Northeast bank, with sparse locations elsewhere. The big cities in the nation get them, but everywhere else not so much.


Hi Astro, BoA --appx 50 years ago was NC National Bank. Later it became Nations Bank-to BoA today. So like me--southern thru and thru:-) Why there isn't one closer for Max, I have no idea. Plentiful in NC. I don't post much. But you made the ref to it being NE bank---HAD to speak up--LOL

BIG weekend for you---congrats on your graduation.!

And Max I hope you get a day or so off this weekend for some rest-----

Hello Pcola
I'm so happy to hear from you on this wonderful day as you say.

I don't know why there is no BOA here. I have to go to Florence (down I-95) for 30 miles or up to Lumberton in North Carolina for 25 miles or so.
Neither of which are helpful for me and my work.
I'm glad that I can pay with credit or debit card to all the stores I have been because I'm out of cash. Yeah, I don't even have a dollar physically in my wallet. There isn't even here an ATM of Bank of America which is all I need really.

About "Shy".. He came again last night over and honestly I was very interested to know his story since our conversation earlier led to this. He told me he can't speak in any language but only to say some words mixed with gestures. He is unable to read, but he writes a little better.
shy is a guy really different from everyone at work, but he doesn't need to be told to work.
Every time we meet in for breakfast either he comes or I go to see him and say hi. We have gotten along fairly well, even though the first day when I went to the job site he was worried because he thought I was an inspector because I was dressed up. He didn't have the right shoes that day. I just got off the train and went to see where I was going to work at.
I laughed.

We are the last ones of that group of generosity and fairness for one another. I don't need the Gov to tell me what's right from wrong in my life.
It's all good Marvin.

Take good care of yourself and may God Bless you today!

Good Morning Max..
By reading back on your blog I see your quite a busy guy..
I'm very happy that you are having a positive experience in Dillion..
I am like you though..
I don't know why Bank of America doesn't have a larger presence in South Carolina..
There is only one office here in Easley..
I'm used to having multiple outlets from which to choose from..
About your friend "Shy"..
I'm proud you took the time to try and assist him..
There are so many selfish people these days..
A good example is the guy who had all the excuses in order to not help him out..
You did the right thing my friend.. :)

On another note:
The East Pac is alive early again this season..
There is a ton of heat in place..




GB and Peace to you on this most wonderful day my friend.. :)

We had two bouts of showers here today, with some thunder both times, --one in the over night, the other from about 6:10pm till 7pm or so. But only got a total of 0.25". The marine air that was over us really knocked down those strong to severe T. Storms that bothered parts of NJ, NY., and PA. Our High temp. here in Stamford today was only 58F.

Part 2 .., NHC


I don't favor the way the TWO is presented to the public regarding the percentages now in use.
10, 20, 30 etc...

Because I don't think you can measure a storms organization for tropical cyclone status being so specific as denoting such percent of potential. For those who do want them to go far into detail then yes, it's fine.

I would want them to go back to the low, medium and high potential style,
Why? How the hell can you say ok this storm has a 90%, this other 70%... There is nothing really different from that on a storm on the verge of attaining tropical status.

Sometimes they even do something like 60-80% for storm that don't make it either because they landfall or they don't really deserve this likelihood... Etc.

It's obvious you can draw the line through by knowing how organized the storm is and assigning a respective percent for low, medium or high.
But what could be different from 70 to 80? Winds? Pressure?

Even storms at landfall are given a high chance? What for anymore?

....my thoughts... Don't comment if you don't get it.

Every country, especially the one who is getting worst affected "deserves" to play a bigger role. Not just wait until NHC decides to make room in their hard rives to store more information about a new advisory.
All they do is
"Mexico issues a hurricane watch for Acapulco to Manzanillo"

That's nothing... How can you consider a major input from. Mexico where the storms headed?

Why am I saying all of this?
Sometimes a NHC screws up badly, and takes their time, whenever they feel like, to fix up things.
They are taking their job as police, in a sense, no one else like them so they do whatever they Want whenever they want... No one is going to say crap to us.

I'm having a really hard time following what your argument here is. What information is the NHC holding back from us?

NHC warns on systems in the Atlantic and East Pacific because that's what the consensus was at a World Meteorological Organization meeting. Official information on any particular system within this region comes from the NHC, just like official information in the West Pacific comes from the JMA.

As far as the intensity for Camille being "inaccurate", it may have been, but not intentionally. Technology is so much more advanced now than it was in 1969, when they had faulty hurricane hunter aircraft and poor satellite measurements.

Some other forecasting agency could have done a better job and get better results from this storm but since it's not USA Gov related then it's not recognized nor relied on.

This really upsets me.


This last part seems to me to be more of an issue with one's trust levels in their own government. If a native citizen disregards their nation's warnings unless the NHC backs it up as well, that's a culture problem in that country, not the NHC's problem.

Also, on this theme, there is cooperation between the U.S. and Cuba on hurricanes. Just Google US/Cuba cooperation on meteorology or hurricanes, and many articles come up.


I thought about mentioning that pair, especially the famous incident in 1900 when the US refused to listen to Cuba's meteorologists about a certain hurricane's trajectory towards Galveston, TX.

Woops...

The head US meteorologist at the time, Isaac Cline, paid for the mistake by losing his wife and family to the storm.

Wow, you are really "worked up" about this Max! Geography and countries resources come into play. We, the US, like it or not, have the greatest "resources" to track these entities. Of course mistakes are made The NHC is made up of human beings, and as such is imperfect. They try to do their best, just as other meteorological entities in other countries try to do their best. There is cooperation between and among weather forecasting centers in the Western Hemmisphere when it comes to Hurricane predictions. Being here in the US, of course our news is dominated by the NHC it's only natural. I'm sure those in Cuba or Mexico listen to their own forecast centers, who do share information with the NHC.


Larry by no means My intent is to offend you or anyone else.

I just say there could be a breather collaboration from other countries for a more solid, accurate team work.
You have a point about the lack of resources but this is something temporal that can be fixed.

I hope someone who is neutral can understand my point. Many can get lost off track.

Rant time...

A guy whom I appreciate much, even though he is semi deaf and had speaking- hearing disabilities comes to our room in the hotel asking us a favor. He struggles trying to explain to us what he needed.
We understood.

He wanted to empty his phone memory by passing into a computer his files and then into a flash drive he brought with.
His phone was damaged so he was mailing it away to the company to fix it.

He asked me and my co worker here is we had a laptop or something like that so that he could do it.
I felt bad to say no so my co worker here.

We called another guy from another room who does have a laptop to come over and help our bud here.
This guy we called he said he was too tired to come up, then I said to him if we could borrow his computer, he said no, then I said if we could go down to his room to use the computer...

After feeling a bit out of choice (rude to say no when you have something who can help someone).. He said he'll come up to us bringing the computer over.

He comes in, we are here with "Shy" as we call him. Shy needed a computer for this.
This guy who own the computer was helping us but I could clearly tell he was unwilling to do it.
All he tried was to plug in the phone charger wire to his PC. Then he said no this doesn't work... I'm sorry

I was like... No, you can also try to go to control panel to look for external hard drives. Aka the phone.
He has an HP and Shy has a galaxy S4

After doing what I told him he says no again... "there is nothing I can do"

I began to feel upset... This is when I stopped writing the post about my NHC complain below...

Then I say to this guy who knew basics about computers as I do. To download the software Samsung gives to all users of a phone of theirs when trying to store your pictures from the phone to the computer... Is really easy.

This guy was like no, I can't do that, I don't want any viruses, my computer is new, I don't know how to do that, I can't do this I don't speak English to type this.
Bunch of worthless excuses...


Then I said, well can I type it?
He was like, no I don't like other people using my computer.
At this point is when he gets up with the computer, unplugs the wire of Shy's phone and heads for the door.

I was dumbfounded... Didn't he want to help, that's why he came?
He was like I have to go, I'm sorry.
Me, "yeah get out then, so much for you help"
He says " I'm sorry I don't know"
Me.. "I know how to do it, you just dont want to let me type it"... Forget it, keep walking out the door. Bye"

He shuts the door.

I felt bad and a bit angry.

I told Shy I wanted to help and he clearly understood it.
Few minutes later he leaves after we tried to tell him things and ask too.

Shy (I'm not sure about why so) has disabilities but he's one of the experts at the job... He looks like 20-25 years old.
He doesn't need to be told what to do... Ever.
He tries to explain things to me at work, I have learned lots of stuff from him about the job.

He likes to talk to people trying to sustain a conversation about something not just work related but many are not interested much, THOUGH they try to not show it. He rather works alone.
He feels very frustrated.

I think this is why they call him like this..

He calls me his friend, doing his hand gestures... I laugh.
Since I'm new in the job, I think he feels like there is someone new for him to try to talk to and not feel uncomfortable.

And, if you want to get really nit-picky...the National Hurricane Center is set up specifically for US-interests.

Do we hog the data for ourselves? No, that would be ridiculous.

The NHC puts out information chiefly for US citizens. Other nations' citizens have the ability to gleam information from their own meteorology services, but they also have the ability to compare against the NHC, CPHC, and JTWC.

Yes, I'm being picky, down the pasta thin path....


Yeah but hurricanes are not property of anyone... This, as you say, may be taken as US's which I don't understand why if so.
Just because these stoms hit USA that de won't give then any right to "own" a natures creation.
It sounds ridiculous even by saying own,

The reason why there is no other agency around to go for we all from many countries "have to" go to NHC.

I can come up with "banana hurricane center" and do the same as the NHC in Miami. They can't really criticize or come against me, even if my information is not completely exactly true when if both were simultaneously tracking a storm.

I can have said Sandy was a 120 mph storm when it hit Cuba, or Igor to be a 165 mph storm. BUT people take NHC as the only "reliable source" for no reason, even if they have inaccurate information about storms such as they did for Camille. So many years had to go by to change the intensity of the storm.
Some other forecasting agency could have done a better job and get better results from this storm but since it's not USA Gov related then it's not recognized nor relied on.

This can unintentionally make people think that everything being highlighted could become a tropical cyclone (the public recognize this word as hurricane only).

Everything that gets highlighted does indeed have a chance of becoming a hurricane. Not everything will. That's just misinterpretation on your part or someone else's.

information should be obtained from an international collaboration.

It is. The NHC gladly takes data from all who have the ability to do so, ship reports and international measurements. Also, when those Hurricane Hunters fly, they routinely have to ask for other countries' permission to fly through those countries' air space.

I do believe the NHC communicates with other countries' meteorological services with each storm, and I do know they have/are aiding Mexico with Mexico's new hurricane agency.

Complain time...
For: NHC Miami, Fl

First off this is an agency based on the USA not spread around many countries such as McDonalds.
Many people from all around the word come to this website for information since they have the absolute authority to decide about hurricane information for the public as we all know

Why just this place? I agree and like they idea of having there a place as headquarters for this but the information should be obtained from an international collaboration.

Secondly, being more technical, regarding the TWO, I don't think it's necessary to have such percentage increments.
This can unintentionally make people think that everything being highlighted could become a tropical cyclone (the public recognize this word as hurricane only).

Oh hey, Brian's thinking about leaving WU forever because of a perceived slight to his WU Photos.
Wanna put in a word and try to convince him to stay?

I knew you were gonna do that.

Buuut here is the catch... You really don't know me at all really.
You can't say to do. I can't say that about you either.

Ps.. Heck? Since when you are testing me?


Don't know what the PS means. Ain't testing nobody.

I think you show yourself pretty well via the internet, Max. And you definitely show your macho self when you're upset via email. Should I go find a email to demonstrate that?

Wait wait. Is this a new disturbance around?
Not in the nearby location of the other one

Seems this one has a better shot at it...


The old disturbance is those little puff balls of cumulus to the west of this one.

Dillon, SC

This town has everything you need to leave happily and satisfactorily. Just a tad limited
Yes I know this is not near a mega city like New York City or Atlanta
But again, there are plenty of things here.

Good enough when coming to restaurants... All kinds like Chinese, Mexican, American, delis, and all fast foods.
Big food stores, groceries everywhere.
Good gas supply, diverse on fuel choices.
Bunch of hotels, inns, rent houses, home sales etc.
All other kind of stores like USPS, Auto Zone, Rite aid, CVS, Walmart, Verizon, AT&T... Etc
Banks... Wells Fargo and some other regional/local banks.
*** here is where Dillon lets me down, there is no Bank of America here. So I'll need to go to Florence to do any banking I need. :(

Interstate 95 up and down taking you to Florence-Charleston where I-20 starts it's track to Atlanta or take it northbound to go to Fayetteville to Richmond.
Also state route 301.

Gotta say this is the first place I see a "Hurricane evacuation route" sign for real.

This is an ample low grass area.. You can see the flat land as far as our eyes can see. No tall trees at all here really unlike Atlanta to Norwalk.
I love this place. I may stay here for months.

We may leave to another state afterwards: Massachusetts, Tennessee or Maryland. It is still unknown.

Salaam worthy friends...

Today was my first day in the real engineering job here of mine.
Tight on safety, progress and production.

But we have fun.
When trying to drill a 3" 3/4 screw on a 9' beam to a 30' frame, the darn screw slips off my hand and the driller almost gets my thumb in the hole. Those are heavy duty big electric drillers. Not minding that I was 20' up.

Real job... Yes, last week I was on training but getting paid still. Two days while others take a week. Fast learner.

I doubt 15 grand is gonna make them go bankrupt.
Lots of fast money with their profitable winter storm keeping and what not... Doubt that was not what they intended to make it be to the public as they said...

And this is just another propaganda...profitable as well.
