We continue with how to predict hurricanes and how the national hurricane Center creates different models using different algorithms make spaghetti patterns about where a hurricane is going to hit land or as they call it in the business, make landfall.
Do the TV networks over hype hurricanes rainstorms winter storms? Tyler talks about how TV networks and the media in general could do a better job informing us about hurricanes and severe weather.
It's gotten to the point where people think the TV networks and media are just crying wolf, so many times a storm is coming and the media and TV networks make a really big deal out of it and then the storm doesn't happen. Then people tend to become more skeptical and then when the real thing actually occurs they get taken by surprise because we've been numbed to the weather hype.

Hey guys, another solid show. I did the epoxy on my garage floor this March when I moved into my current home - it is so worth the effort! In my case, the etch was powdered citric acid, not muriatic. I heated the garage for a few days to get the floor warm(er) and everything looks good so far, but it's only been six months. That and a coat of cheap white semi-gloss on the walls and ceiling made the garage look brand new. Eric, I highly recommend the time it takes to clean out and prep the garage - you'll have a whole new appreciation for that part of your house.
