    Should have built the wall on Mexico Beach.

    Wow, all kidding aside the devastation is huge. Best of luck to the folks who have to try and pick up their lives down there.

    You may know this but for those that still don't, not greatest storms in a hundred years but 100 year storms. Meaning they have a 1% (one in a hundred) chance of occurring in that location in that year. You can have a 100-year storm in consecutive years because the odds have not changed. Probably was not the best wording to use but I think we are stuck with it. Good explanation of the metric here: https://water.usgs.gov/edu/100yearflood.html

    Here is the best idea yet to get Trump moving on climate change:

    Here's an idea: Let's call climate change 'Obama warming' and watch Trump jump into action

    Yeah I've read a lot about 100 year, 500 year, 1000 year storm/flood/whatever and fully understand the math. Just pointing out the some what absurd amount of 100 year events that seem to have occurred in recent years. While statistically possible, I'd be willing to bet they are statistically improbable.

    Though in this case I think "Strongest Storm to hit Panhandle" in last 100 year also fits this particular storm.

    Hurricane Leslie is likely to hit Portugal as a hurricane strength post-tropical storm (much like Sandy when it made landfall in NJ) tomorrow night or Sunday morning. Not unprecedented but not something that happens all that often.
