    Re: Tropical depression #1

    Yeah, but this has a more attention-getting thread title.

    (And I get to change it at will, so when it becomes Tropical Storm Alberto running thread this afternoon it will be even more attention getting. I just hope it doesn't become the Hurricane Alberto has destroyed my house running thread.)

    Threadjack: Great user-name edit, _Bat. It ain't easy to find that character on the keyboard.

    Also: This is a much better thread title. I'm in the cone, too. I'm rooting for it; we need the rain.

    So do we. But not the wind.

    It appears we'll get some of both. :'(

    We won't get what you got, Johnny.

    2mcm, what JD said. though it's only a depression right now, it's awfully early in the season. Hopefully this isn't a sign of what's to come.
