Lorenzo, you lost?

I’m so happy that it’s missing the Azores. All I can think of is what would all the cows do?

Herds of cows in the middle of the Atlantic, funny no? :smile:

The milk/cream from the Azores’ cows makes the BEST ice cream, so I for one am glad they’re all safe.

and another “never-before-seen-event”; hurricane lorenzo is

the largest recorded storm to have made it so far east in the north Atlantic

and will hit Ireland (likely still as “hurricane” and not “storm” at that time) and the UK on thursday to friday

ETA:

Hurricane Lorenzo broke records over the weekend after being elevated to a category 5 storm, which the National Hurricane Center in the US said was the strongest for that far north and east in the Atlantic

Wow. Looks like they’re gettin a scouring.

(Are expected to get.)

Lorenzo has the whole north Atlantic to choose from but no.

(Is it too late to rename this as Hurricane Boris?)

Oxford looks to be right in the middle of Lorenzo’s path. The council have been around clearing the drains because we have already had a flood earlier this week.

The bears’ main food source, salmon, is at an all time low in the area… Commercial fishermen in British Columbia are calling this the worst salmon season in nearly 50 years…In August, a report released by the Fisheries and Oceans Canada noted that Canada’s climate is warming twice as fast as the global average, drastically impacting the salmon’s ecosystems. The report also cited marine heatwaves, increased floods and droughts as causing greater stress on the fish.
