    For the Pacific storms.

    In the Atlantic, we've already had Alberto and Beryl. (although both only made tropical storm status).

    I'm heading to the east coast, specifically coastal Maryland, soon to begin an internship. I'm a lifelong Midwesterner and I've dealt with tornadoes, but never a hurricane. How likely is it I'll encounter a tropical storm or hurricane over the summer out there?

    There's a better chance you'll be attacked by a pack of rabid beavers.

    Maybe you'll get some tropical (not hurricane) force winds once? When the storms get within a few hundred miles of the coast, the waves up and down the east coast get really fun to be in, if you're a good (better than just capable) swimmer. So if Bermuda is getting thrashed, or even grazed or just threatened, you'll have a blast playing in the ocean in Maryland.

    Irene grazed the area last year. One of the trees in my backyard may never recover.

    Maryland tends to get glancing blows from tropical storms and hurricanes.

    Yes, you need to be prepared. When weather forecasters are suggesting that everyone within a mile of the coast evacuates because of 8-foot waves and a storm surge, do the right thing: Grab your surfboard and go enjoy.

    If it comes ashore in the USA as a tropical storm or Cat 1, good. We need the rain. Anything else, no thank you.

    Yep. I would love for that bad boy to be a Cat 1 and head due north up the Mississippi to give us a day or two of soaking rain.

    Given the electrical-grid infrastructure in the region, a LITTLE wind and rain likely means losing power for at least three days.

    I'll trade you that for the "120 Days of Wind."
