I have a feeling this will be one to watch, it formed odd and early, noticed before it even got to water, I have a feeling Bertha is gonna be Bad Bertha.

I agree... I have been watching this since it formed.. Maybe Big Bertha... Some news outlets are starting to report this...

ap.google.com...

www.cnn.com...

Interesting note here...
www.eleconomista.es...


Energy markets have paid close attention to storms in the Atlantic since the devastating 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons, during which a number of powerful hurricanes ripped through the Gulf of Mexico, toppling oil rigs and severing pipelines.


I bet oil goes to $150 even though it likely wont hit any oil rigs in the gulf.. I am renting Madd Maxx again...

It must be the second because it contains a "B"

Anyway, its just a hurricane, like any other hurricane we have had for millions of years....

True, we can keep an eye on it, but its nothing mindboggling.

What will be mind boggling is IF this hurricane manages to effect the price of oil before a storm path has been predicted.

I was waiting for the first storms to start popping up. It is just my luck, I move to the Gulf Coast on Tuesday morning lol. Last time I tried to move there due to work, was a couple months before Katrina. I will definitely be keeping a close eye on this storm.
