Your intel has been spot-on on this one stefal. Crane was working the installation this morning. Looks like it's in two halves (?) that are going to be joined upon installation.It has arrived and is docked at the MIT dock in the Charles. I imagine it might be moved onto site/into place this weekend(?).
Man, if only Carolina had been on the Bruins schedule image EGE posted upthread...We haven’t had a hurricane since 1991. I think it’s safe to say that we can be taken off the hurricane map
No you have it backwards. No hurricane since 1991 (Bob) just means the likelihood of the next one here continues to increase. Since historical records (which isn’t that long in a statistical sense), New England has averaged one hurricane strength landfall per decade. Thirty-one years is quite the drought and when the next one hits will be truly devastating. Not even talking storm surge, just tree & foliage overgrowth alone will knock power out for weeks in a lot of places.We haven’t had a hurricane since 1991.

It probably does increase though due to climate change.Folks, probability does not work the way either of you are suggesting. The drought of hurricane landfalls in New England neither raises nor lowers the year over year probability of a landfall.
A string of heads in a coin toss does not change the odds that in any given coin toss the odds remain 50/50 of heads or tails.
Yeah, it's entirely possible that the probability itself can change (and, specifically, increase) due to climate change. That's independent of any perceived "drought" (though it would make the drought continuing marginally less likely by the magnitude of the increase in hurricane probability). I think the point was less "probability is fixed" and more "probability isn't affected by superstitions that we're "due" for something".It probably does increase though due to climate change.
