Quote from: Robin Hansen on September 10, 2022, 10:14:25 AMInteresting that these storms on the west coast are now being called "hurricanes". I forget the previous name which never made sense to me as even when we had the Columbus Day storm in the early 60s here on the Pacific Northwest coast it was, simply, a hurricane. It will be forever imprinted on my conscious brain.Interesting also that the maps to Bern's link show no hurricane activity at all further north than southern California. I would suspect that we are somewhat more likely to have an occasional hurricane these days because of climate change.Robin HansenSouthwestern Oregon, smoky, hot, humid
QuoteThe storms that rage across the western Pacific Ocean (in the Eastern Hemisphere) are called typhoons, while the ones spawned in the Atlantic and eastern Pacific (the Western Hemisphere) are called hurricanes. Those born in the South Pacific and Indian Ocean are known as cyclones.

QuoteTuomas Malinen @mtmalinen - 8:53 UTC · Sep 7, 2022I am telling you people that the situation in #Europe is much worse than many understand. We are essentially on the brink of another banking crisis, a collapse of our industrial base and households, and thus on the brink of the collapse of our economies.We are also totally at the mercy of the authorities, and we have very little knowledge what they have planned.Will they be able to stop the onset of the banking crisis, yet again? I don't know, but I am doubtful. 🤷�♂️🤔
