Tyndall is just one of several military bases hit by a hurricane in the
past year, and the high cost of repairs foreshadows a major upcoming problem
for the U.S. military. Last week, the Air Force announced that it was seeking
$5 billion for repairs to two bases following recent extreme weather events,
Tyndall and Nebraska?s Offutt Air Force Base.
Tyndall's an hour from here and they were hit my that puny little
afternoon thundershower "Michael". Sure the winds were high, but it
petered out soooo quickly.
We've been here since 1965 and THAT himmicane was a pussy, compared to
what hit us back in the 70s and 80s. We got hit by the SAME hurricane
twice back when I was a lifeguard. That was a pain, but no one died. A few
tipped over Hobies.
Tyndall's only been there since 1941, and they've enjoyed a relatively
uneventful 78 years. (see below) 8 whole hurricanes in that time. Climate
change? No fucking way.
This is NOTHING new. EVERY Hurricane that comes within a 100 miles of a
base is going to do some damage. Planes do some weird things when they get
blown on... like FLY, dumbass, and when they can't fly because they're
tied down, there's going to be damage!
Planes and helicopters are expensive, dumbass. Eloise, Ivan, Opal, hell,
even Camille, which was 150 miles away, did a LOT of damage here and to
Eglin AFB. $5 billion? Chicken feed, Mr. Little... eat up.
Calling Mr. Little... your plate of bullshit is ready.
Brudnicki?s use of military imagery is fitting. Storms like Michael
portend a growing budget problem for the Pentagon, as climate change
inflicts billions of dollars in damage to military bases.
There's nothing that has "changed", other than the LESS frequent
Hurricanes we've been hit by lately. Panama City had a TWENTY year gap
before Michael hit. That's a GOOD "change".
"Greg Brudnicki, mayor of Panama City, Florida, has lived in the community
for 55 years and said he has never seen a storm like Hurricane Michael."
So have I, and there hasn't BEEN any hurricanes that have HIT Panama City,
like we've been hit here.
Look at a path map, stupid. Panama City doesn't get hit directly, very
often, and Tyndall, even less.

No... no, it's not. And we're not all gonna die, because there was some
damage at an Air force Base.
It's "weather" when the temperatures don't agree with what climate
screechers have to say, and then it's climate change, when it does.
