Pooling has ended for 2007. Stay tuned for the 2008 pools

Welcome to the 2007 Atlantic hurricane season Betting pools! Enjoy!

Note: I tried to stay as reasonable as possible, but I just had to add the "Strangest Storm" category, because that was the most fun. Please do not add additional sections.

No actual betting is going on here (that I'm aware of).

I'll stop here. If you feel I haven't gone far enough, (for some odd reason) just add the next name on the list.

Informal betting on Strangest Storm

I couldn't resist. What storm do you think will shred the rules of climatology the most? Please tell why, makes it more fun.

This section is just for fun. There will likely be no winner. Because of this, please do not mark out the names as they form. ;)

  • Andrea-
  • Barry-Lasts from May until November, and outlasts every other storm - Patricknoddy Talk 19:36, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Chantal-
  • Dean-Will form, reach TS, then dissipate - Patricknoddy Talk 19:35, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
    • Uh... this is the strangest storm section... right? ;) Cyclone1(20:48 UTC -3/06/2007)
  • Erin-
  • Felix-
  • Gabrielle- Has enough power (for some severely odd reason) to reach the central United States as a major hurricane (yah right, severe damage to Illinois due to cat. 4 hurricane Gabrielle ;) Galaxy001talk 05:26, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
  • Humberto-
  • Ingrid- Skirts the NC Outer Banks, hits Jersey Shore/NYC area as weak 3 / strong 2. Massive damage to the later two, which are unprepared. (Not a wish, more a fear) Gulf Coastie 02:13, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Jerry-Goes into a Fujiwara interaction with itself, and loops around the Lesser Antilles three times before going into a Fujiwhara interaction with Lorenzo. 68.100.190.56
  • Karen- Touches shore three times (not in the same area) - Enzo Aquarius 15:46, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

  • Olga- Wishes the Caribbean a happy Thanksgiving by strengthening unexpectedly into a hurricane and raking the Greater Antilles. Its remnants reform in the Gulf of Mexico and hit an already-soggy Texas. Not terribly interesting, but this has been an underachieving season. -- SkyFury 23:08, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Pablo- Slow moving Cape-Verde storm. Forms August 31, dissipates October 1, becoming the only tropical cylone to span between 3 calender months. Cyclone1(19:17 UTC -26/04/2007)
  • Rebekah-
  • Sebastien-
  • Tanya- First December Category 5. Wxdiva 21:12, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
  • Van- Forms out of a polar low and makes landfall on Greenland. Jake52 01:24, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
  • Wendy- Makes landfall in Miami, Florida, destroying the Burger King headquarters. Remnants move into the central plains, spawning a tornado in Illinois that destroys the McDonalds headquarters. Wendy's, being the only fast food company left, decide to name their company after the helpful storm, but then they realized they did not have to. (sorry, I'm really hungry as I write this.)
