Time to get back to posting… with a common FactFallacy

Weather turns phallic… The very nature of hurricane forecast cones pretty much requires that they end up looking like phalluses. (See NOAA’s Definition of the National Weather Service Track Forecast Cone for details on how the graphic is derived.) But sometimes the graphic ends up being somehow more compellingly phallic than usual. In this case, Tropical Storm Erika and the state of Florida seem to be starting a duel. (Anyone remember the memorable scene from the John Ritter movie, “Skin Deep”? No? Look it up… Oh, okay; it was a 1989 movie. You may not know what to look for, so here it is!!)

Anyway, here is an Intellicast image from August 2015 for Erika’s storm track:

About WarpedWits

I am a woman with a lot of different things on my mind (never a dull moment in there - always something bouncing around), and a lot of different interests - from my cat (why yes, I *am* single!)... to construction and building... to landlording... to designing furniture/gardens/art/whatever... to writing, weightlifting, local car racing (only for the team I crew with, really)... to science and environmentalism... to travel, politics and world events. I tend toward the sarcastic, the droll and the humorous (at least to me).
