Can't Beat Mother Nature

This morning the boys in Hurricane central were busier than usual with the computermodels as Mother Nature began playing her usual game of chess by ignoring the computer model and moving Hurricane Katrina further westward into the Gulf of Mexico.

Meteorology, like medical science, is still an inexact science and Mother Nature pokes fun at both, sometimes with not-so-funny results. Man, with all his smartivity, just doesn't hold a candle to Mother Nature's various ploys at confusing, prempting and disrupting scientific ways and means. Even the computer, with all its speedy analytical capabilities, still can't beat Mother Nature's capricious ways.

Just another thing to ponder over this early morning.

I being a programmer can say that the simulation is only as good as the knowledge of the programmer who created it.
