How hurricanes form is a question asked not only by
those on the Gulf Coast but people worldwide. The answer to how
hurricanes form is not as obvious as one may think.
For instance, me thinks hurricanes form because of
gusts of air over warm water and the circular reasoning of the ocean
tides. But, not so, dear friend or fiend as you may be.
Hurricanes form in order to throw migratory birds off track, thus
delaying the egg laying process and procreation thereof. Take for
instance the airspeed velocity of a Monte Python unladen swallow.
How many beats per minutes must it attain to fly its given course
and return to Europe or Africa or wherever it ventures from in the
first place? Yes, that is correct, no on knows for sure.
But, the answer to how hurricane form can be found in the confounding
of this path no matter from whence the swallow is to return. The
answer my friend is blowing in the wind.
Another reason that hurricanes form is to give weathermen jobs,
especially those in California. California weathermen get bored
saying that it's another sunny day outside so they will sometimes
report national news such as hurricanes and explain in great detail
why those in Louisiana or Florida have it suckier than those on
the West Coast.
Now, let's get to the nuts and bolts of this discussion. Hurricanes
form when the warm air meets cool air and warm water and starts
spinning loosely following the gravitational forces of the earth,
the rotation of the equator and the shallow swallow path of the
migratory variety along with El Nino and La Nina or La Ninja and
that my fiend is that.
When these forces of nature (or farces of nature) come together
in a perfect storm like the movie, then, my friend (yes, now you
are my friend) you have a NOLA NOAA event. Flying cats, chickens
everywhere, cows rotating around the center wall, oh the humanity!
So, how do hurricanes form? With the kind of attitude only Mother
Nature could love.
