How things have changed on wikipedia since 2005[edit]

Cyrius, do you always have to be so serious? There's nothing wrong with spicing up the article a little bit so long as it is not detracting from the article. I think 'But aparently Tropical Storm #1 was not aware of these limits. This unnamed tropical storm formed on Groundhog Day!' is reasonable. There is a reason to get excited about it, rather than treating it like just another boring tropical storm. 'Tropical Storm #1 was well outside these limits. It formed on February 2nd. It hit the Florida Keys.' Zzzzz. Wake me up when you're finnished. We want this to be an informative website for people of all ages. I feel that you need to get people interested in what is being stated. Not bore them with dull lines.

Nice article, but I have a few comments.

  • "The final storm of the season dissipated on October 28, about two weeks before the season officially ended on November 15" October 28 to November 15 is a few days more than two weeks, so i'd change that to "almost three weeks".
  • The timeline section only contains a graph that IMO should be moved to the storms section because it looks stubby.
  • "The storm caused scattered power outages and gusty winds across New England.[8] The storm remains the only tropical or subtropical storm on record during the month of February, and was the earliest tropical cyclone to strike the United States" Excessive "the storm" why not change one of them to "the tropcial cyclone".
  • The track map of Able looks weird.
  • "On August 30 Able turned to the north-northwest due to an approaching cold front, and the next day made landfall near Beaufort, South Carolina with peak winds of 105 mph (170 km/h)" comma after August 30

Nice article!
