It may only be at 45 mph right now, but Gustav will make a stab at the United States in the next few days. So the tradition of taking random stabs at the forecast begins. See the tropical weather page or go directly to the game at http://funnelfiasco.com/cgi-bin/hurricane.cgi?cmd=view&year=2008&name=gustav. Remember, the forecast is for the first mainland North American landfall. Check back here to find out when the results are posted. If you have suggestions on how the scoring should be done, leave a comment below. Happy forecasting!
P.S. If you’re reading this and you’ve never done something like this before, do it anyway. One time, a Denny’s waitress won the snowfall contest. You don’t have to be good to be lucky.
