For me it's in the low 2-digits (13 or so to be precise), assuming every one of my posts in this thread shares a pet peeve

Digit inherently implies base 10 since only "0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9".

Furthermore, I said 1 digit, and 9 in base 195300127483610124774 is 9 in base 10.

When a wiki has something that is correct and you have something better (e.g. Trinitrotoluene vs 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene) and you add it to the wiki but it keeps being reverted.
That is the battle I'm having on the Minecraft wiki in a nutshell.
I'm like, "PEOPLE! The preferred IUPAC name of it is 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene!"

Hey! A fellow NHC spy!
By the way, Dorian is forecast to make landfall in Nova Scotia as a tropical system, which is something I've never seen before. Usually, the storms become extratropical before then.

I'm not a meteorologist, but perhaps it has to do with the fact that Dorian is compact and very powerful.
Anyways, if it remains a hurricane, then I should have saved this for then.

In that case, Ophelia was not a hurricane when it hit the UK or Norway. It reached these areas as an extratropical cyclone. Which is why it's amazing Dorian is still tropical so far north.

EDIT: As I said that, it became extratropical.

Exactly--if I did that for Dorian, a for awesome wouldn't have chided me for my poor wording.

According to Wikipedia, part of Nova Scotia has a hurricane warning, since apparently there isn't such a thing as an unusually powerful extratropical cyclone warning.

Also according to Wikipedia, Dorian is tied for strongest (recorded) landfalling Atlantic Hurricane by maximum sustained winds.

Dorian no longer posts a threat to Atlantic Canada, and is now over frigid waters with sea-surface temperatures of 10 degrees Celsius. (Tropical cyclones thrive in SSTs of over 25 degrees Celsius.)

People who use all caps.
People who use unrelated emojis.
People who think I'm incompetent.
People who are so lazy they can't put in an extra space between "F" and "T".

Tropical cyclones need to be in tropical water, after all, so I don't think it can possibly remain up to Nova Scotia, which is well up the Canadian border.
