Dont get your hopes up, Al Roker just did a seg on why surfers shouldnt go into hurricane produced big surf. I just saw the ad, and not the peice but Im sure the beach rangers are all in a tizzy trying to see what beaches they need to close off.
I do find it really odd this year. Years past no one even talked about the hurricanes unless they were going to make landfall and cause destruction. This year? A tropical depression forms and everyone goes nuts.
