Are other people like me a little bit bummed that the Weather Channel has purchased Weather-Underground?

Get ready for more hype about the weather than real weather.

Oh, meaning......isn't an El Nino a good thing to help "block" or breakup hurricanes (wasn't talking about the weather channel, but do prefer the underground)

El Nino is the best case scenario for the peak of the season. In '97 & one other year we had full El Nino in effect and both years not one storm entered the Caribbean Basin. The reason being, all of the wind shear from tropical activity in the near Pacific either blocks and/or destroys tropical cyclone formation in the Caribbean. Doesn't mean there will be no hurricanes, but it lowers the chances significantly. The El Nino event was anticipated and was the main reason for the lower number of predicted storms earlier this year. Also the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone is way further South than it usually is for this time of the year. Tropical waves coming off of Africa have either been destroyed by Saharan air or have run into the Northern coast of S. America.
