Man, where were you when the center of Tropical Storm Arlene (http://www.reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml?type=topNews&storyID=8758798) (just missed being a hurricane by 2 MPH) passed about 100 miles east of here on June 11th? Plus Calvin's (http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/text/refresh/MIATCPEP3+shtml/281434.shtml) already heading out to sea.

Of course, you Scots don't have to worry about such things...until the Arctic ice cap melts, that is. :D

Yup, there's been all sorts of things going on. Two weeks ago my boss was worried about going to Mexico with Tropical Storm Adrian going on, but that was no big deal.
