P storm--following pretty good solar activity
- The nucleotide parasol cirrus clouds based modulation of chemistry
and temperatures formed a symbiotic relationship w/ cellular life in
the marine biosphere--and I suspect that many of the massively
parallel calculations toward living conditions eventually has had a
large impact on our ability to be self aware. We are talking about
billions of years of evolution and countless transactions to get to
where we are. There is a weakness in the scientific community about
how hard biological sciences are, and the biologists are not familiar
w/ electrical magnetic behaviors and climatologists are stuck on
Boyles law. And so it goes. Meanwhile, dams on West African and S.
American rivers shift when sediments and nutrients flow to the marine
biosphere and shift when the oceans are more conductive:

This is NOT the first time we've seen 2 storms in December. It
happened way way way back in 1887 as well. *edit*In fact, 1887 also
had a storm before the season began as well, so it's not the first
time we've seen 3 offseason storms either.
Still the first time in over 115 years. Plus, only 4 other seasons on
record (1887, 1933, 1969, and 1995) had as many as 16 named storms.
In APRIL I forecasted a heavy and shifted later season.
