are the chances of that happening?

Hurricanes are usually destructive in some way or another. But, what would be the impact if we did not have hurricanes and ultimately the increased water supply driven into the land they cross? Would this ultimately create drought conditions in areas that might actually depend on the hurricanes increasing the local water table? Are we dependent on the water the hurricanes can produce? Could we, and the areas affected by hurricane activity, survive without them? Your thoughts, please. Thanks.

I have a lot of experience adding on and troubleshooting PC’s and stuff. I know what components to buy and pretty much everything from overclocking to modding, but tomorrow will be the first time I will actually assemble a PC from scratch. Here are my specs:
Computer Specifications
– AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
– (x2) [SLI] PNY nVidia GeForce GTS 250 1GB GDDR3
– 4GB (2x2GB) OCZ Black Edition PC3-12800 DDR3 1600Mhz RAM
– Asus M4N98TD Evo nForce 980a AM3 SLI Motherboard
– Western Digital Black Caviar 1TB 7200RPM 32MB Cache HDD
– Corsair 850TX 850 Watt Power Supply
– Raidmax Hurricane ATX Mid-Tower Case
– LiteOn x24 DVD/CR+/- Drive
– CoolIt Eco A.L.C. CPU Cooler (Liquid Cooling)
– Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Basically, where should I start? Should I mount the motherboard in the case first and put everything in from there? Or should I install the CPU and RAM first and then mount the motherboard? Should the CPU installation be where the CPU will simply fall into the socket if installed correctly? Since the CPU is AM3 Socket and the motherboard is as well, will installing the CPU the wrong way will not POST but not damage any pins on the CPU? Thanks for answering all these questions =D

So I live in South FL and have 2 tanks (a 10gallon and a 65gallon) very happy and well set up. But I had never thought about how to protect them in case of a hurricane. When a hurricane threatens, I usually go up north with my cat and my bird, but what do I do with the fishies? Also, the power goes out in my area, every time a hurricane comes, so the filter wouldn’t be working for at least two days until I can come back and connect it to a generator. Any ideas, I’m kinda clueless here. Thanks

I’m planning a trip to the DR in September.

I checked the National Hurricane Center website to see if they predict any Hurricanes for September, but all it says is this season will be an "Active Atlantic Hurricane Season." It doesn’t give any specific dates.

So I’m wondering how far in advance can they predict a hurricane?

Say that an hurricane hit your town and your survive it with only 7 strangers each with a different profession. Your supplies are weeks worth of food, some hardware tools, an entire suburb town full of dabre, a canal, and some medical supply how can you survive in this environment? With no electricity, soap, clean clothes, government, and some hostile people that can come and get your supplies.

How can you survive it?

It was predicted to be an above average year but so far there has been only one hurricane and a few depressions/storms. Also, the waters are supposed to be really warm and LA NINA is developing. All this should be great for hurricane formation. Why such a slow start?
