Tropical Depression Four Forms.. Cape Verde Storm!

Officially announcing the birth of Tropical Depression #4 far out in the distant Atlantic.

Follow along on Hurricane City or Flhurricane or any of the really excellent sites out there. I'll check in this evening with my thoughts after I get a feel for it and get done answering all my text messages from crazy friends excited about a real Cape Verde Storm.

Understand... you can't do research or study something until you have something to work with and hopefully one day a decade all so from now ... when a Cape Verde forms and models point it in our direction we will have a better understanding and even ways to help weather such a storm. Even the chance of weather modification to deal with a 2 and not a 4 would save so many lives in the world where so many millions live along the coastlines.

Take care, be back in a while
