    Place your bets:

    Named Storms
    Hurricanes
    Major Hurricanes


    The "pros" are forecasting at or above average this coming season.

    14 Named storms
    7 hurry canes
    3.5 major hurry canes

    That's just east side, right?

    Hey, define major hurry cane.

    In an act of extreme niceness, oh so a nice...

    I will give five boxes of Cracker Jacks to the dude who comes closest.

    16 named storms, 9 hurricanes, 4 major hurricanes.

    Just a random guess.

    I looked at the names for this year. Rafael is one. I don't know when, probably September, but it'll hit and it'll be huge.

    I'm calling it. I'll put a grand on it. Whos down

    To the R's by September? That would be an intense frickin year!

    I gotta look up the last time we hit the R storm in September. It probably was Rita in 2005? That crazy year that we ran out of names and letters and got to alpha, beta, etc.

    The pot needs sweetening. Carbon Media can afford to market it, without anyone placing an ante. Someone needs to arrange it. All expense paid surf trip for two, destination chosen by the winner, seems about right.

    My bet is 18/8/5

    If you’re within the state lines of NJ you can set something up. Isn’t this shit run out of tinton falls, my neighbor.

    I got 20 that says it’s a shitty hurricane season (for surf, good for coastal home owners). 20/4/2

    Prediction: No storms this year. I blame Al Gore and the Russians.

    nah man Al is putting up con-trails to make more storms and prove himself right. The ruskies are just a distraction.

    Don't bother trying to call Carbon Media...nothing but a vmail system from Haiti, with no departments professional enough to answer their phones, not even the front desk. Nine options, I tried each. "No one is available to take your call, please leave a message" or, "All of our agents are busy helping other customers..." Yeah, right...what a bunch of tightwad slackers! Wasted ten minutes of my valuable time. Might try email later...

    Any more bets? You have 6.5 days remaining to place one.
