Well, the results are in. Earl weakened pretty significantly as he traveled up the east coast, resulting in fairly minor damage. The game had a lot of first-timers, and most of them did pretty well. I’m pleased with my own performance, but I’d rather win. There might be another chance shortly if the remnants of Gaston get back together.
Also, I finally made a page with a link to all of the scored games and added that link to the tropical weather page.
The hurricane season is in full swing, with three active storms. Danielle is scooting off to oblivion in the North Atlantic, but Earl is gearing up to take a run at the east coast…somewhere. As of this writing, the forecast track is such that landfall could be anywhere from the Outer Banks to Nova Scotia, or perhaps it may yet turn out to sea. Of course that means there’s a Funnel Fiasco tropical contest underway. You can enter by clicking the link on the tropical weather page (or go directly to it here). The deadline for entry is Tuesday at 8 PM EDT (Wednesday 0000 UTC). Just a reminder to make sure you enter valid numbers, I won’t check them for you.
Stay tuned for more on Hurricane Earl, and also for a potential repeat when Tropical Storm Fiona get closer.
