You're around New York City.
This pattern was very similar.
To what caused hurricane hazel and 54 to do -- cheated.
Except it was it is true it was a bit further east in other words -- went -- Myrtle Beach you -- all the way up to Toronto.

Throughout west -- to Pennsylvania.
This was just displaced a bit further east 20300 miles.
So the overall flu -- this storm is something that was definitely within the realm of possibilities something people been worried about for years.
So -- became apparent -- the US generated models which a lot of meteorologists look at.
Wednesday Thursday it is -- not gonna go out to -- what was going on in in the early part of the week and you heard some statements well it might be a storm but it's probably going out -- You had a whole side of the computer models catching on what was going on.
Any US generated models kept driving the storm out to see this as a weakness remember the big snowstorm.
A couple years ago three days before no one thought the storm was coming so the correction back toward land.
Began and -- militant a bit of a problem where the classification of the storm -- the people didn't realize it would continue to intensify on its way towards the and then north westward.
And I I personally and I said this before and I thought it was a big mistake not issuing -- hurricane warning along the coast two days in advance.
You had a hurricane coming.
And -- we got involved I think with a classroom exercise some of the meteorologist we're well it might not be a perfect you know perfectly warm -- storm.
So let's just make it you know issue high wind warnings.
And tell people -- very very bad nor'easter is coming along.

Sean Hannity and about that situation before around Sundance and this is ridiculous not have an arcane warning up because that's perhaps people to attention real quick -- so.
The overall evolution of this is something that we've been looking for for many many years and -- I gotta tell you something.
-- East Coast -- gotten -- very very easy so far.
Up until now in Irene with this cycle that we're now -- I don't know what you do and 1950s but it.
The arcane to eastern seaboard we had ten major hurricanes from Donna and being with -- in 1960.
-- on the eastern sea board in the 19.
Saddam hit in two years 6455.
So this is all part of a pattern that when the Pacific starts pulling the way it is in the Atlantic is still warm for eight to ten years after that.
The actually ships to the East Coast of the United States public place up the next year.
Instead of seeing these storms that -- they were relatively erratic this year you're gonna see the big African storms remember we didn't see anything.
Down in the Caribbean this year.
Coming all the way across from Africa all of that -- -- the freight train will be back in a couple those -- gonna try to turn up the eastern seaboard again.
We're talking when -- was -- -- was -- forecaster.
That's an optical -- -- -- want his brother belt.
What -- is the private company would it would based over it would based in New York based right I'm not.
-- -- and you know after -- left AccuWeather.
Say hey you know you wanna do this in nice addition you know I wanna -- -- I want to be a position where accused you know.
Be able to sort of control my own destiny little bit more and not have to worry about other folks -- certainly no.
No not to get exactly what I mean it just unbelievable world's largest private forecasting company.
But you know I don't play well what -- -- sometimes there's you've probably that's.
