    Tropical Storm Epsilon Has Formed!!!

    Just in time for the end if Hurricane Season tomorrow!
    Tropical Storm Epsilon formed Tuesday in the central Atlantic and could cause dangerous surf conditions in Bermuda over the next few days, forecasters said.

    But the 26th named storm of the busiest hurricane season on record was not expected to hit land, according to forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami.

    At 4 p.m. EST, Epsilon had top sustained winds of about 50 mph, up 5 mph from earlier in the day. It could strengthen over warm ocean waters before hitting cooler waters that should cause it to weaken, forecasters said.

    The storm was centered about 800 miles east of Bermuda and about 1,445 miles west of the Azores Islands. It was moving west near 8 mph.

    The six-month Atlantic hurricane season ends Wednesday.

    Not as tired as having to worry about it over and over. I am hoping this is the finale for the season and repairs can be made and life go on. It is always better to be prepared for an event that caught unaware. We had tornado warnings last night and I put my purse in the bathtub and waited for the sirens so I could join my purse, but fortunately it didn't happen. LOL!

    Epsilon strengthened into a record 14th hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean on Friday - two days after the 2005 season officially ended. Forecasters said it posed no threat to land.

    Epsilon had maximum sustained winds near 75 mph at 10 p.m., according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. It was centered about 1,115 miles west of the Azores and moving northeast at near 10 mph.

    Epsilon was only the fifth December hurricane recorded in more than 120 years, National Weather Service hurricane specialist Stacy Stewart said.

    Forecasters say 2006 could be another brutal hurricane year because the Atlantic is in a period of frenzied activity that began in 1995 and could last at least another decade.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Tropical Storm Epsilon strengthened into a hurricane for the second time in two days on Sunday, perplexing U.S. hurricane researchers who had expected it to steadily weaken over cool Atlantic waters.

    Hurricane Epsilon had maximum sustained winds of 85 mph (140 kph) by 10 a.m. EST (1500 GMT) as it churned eastward at 12 mph (19 kph) around 725 miles (1,170 km) west-southwest of the Azores, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

    "There are no clear reasons and I'm not going to make one up to explain the recent strengthening of Epsilon," hurricane forecaster Lixian Avila said in a bulletin on the Miami-based hurricane center's Web site. "I am just describing the facts."

    Now, wouldn't it be something if Hurricane Epsilon countinued in its new direction and actually became a threat to the Carribean. Stand by.
