While observing Dorian and the current system, just noticed something this is a microcosm about how screwed up this country is in regards to metrication.
Something most people would not be anally retentive enough to notice.
5:00 PM EDT Thu Sep 12
Location: 23.7°N 74.8°W
Moving: NW at 8 mph
Min pressure: 1008 mb
Max sustained: 30 mph
That is from the current system.
Note that the forward movement and wind speeds are given in English units, while the barometric pressure is given in Metric units.
While I do appreciate the usage of Metric units for the pressure, certainly simpler than the English version, at some point, we need to go all in.
We lost a major Mars probe because of our wishy washyness regarding metrication.
