Danny thanks for the memories. Except we have no memories of you. From the get go you were no more than a blob on the map. Even seasoned meteorologists didn't know what to call you. Extra tropical, tropical, or a hybrid. You were a multiple choice question. Danny, I don't mean to be so hard on you, but a "normal storm" in the position that you were in, with plenty of bath water to splash around in, would have at least attempted to give it an effort. Now granted, the folks in Eastern Carolina are happy that you had an identity crisis. On the other hand, The National Hurricane Center decided to give you an identity, but many think you didn't deserve it.
You had hurricane chasing weather media outlets chomping at the bit to give you some attention. You were so close, yet elusive to them. They had to go all the way to New England hoping that you would give them some wind driven rain to talk about. But we will say, in your defense, you did rough up the seas a little bit around here, making some people happy, like surfers.
But seriously Danny, we're glad you kept a low profile as you got close to us. You probably heard that we were weary from covering severe weather this spring into the summer. So you gave us a break. That's cool. And you probably knew that a lot of people now live along the coastal areas of North Carolina. So when the next storm, with a name to remember, hits the area, they'll be calling your name.
So Danny, thanks for the silent treatment, the Chamber of Commerce thanks you.
