  1. 5 right.
    I tried to remember instead of guessing. Busy weather year hard to keep track.

  2. 5 right. mostly I used the 1st answer that come. I live in WY, so I know the totality was about that long — my family was there

  3. 5 right. The longest duration of totality? Come on! But I did remember that Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow last February 2, that was significant!

  4. The consecutive hurricane question is wrong- the correct answer is 10. Nate and Ophelia were also hurricanes…

  5. I got 4 right out of ten! I forgot the months, to much stress on the people’s faces, which was sad to see.

  6. 7 out of the ten. There were so many of the ones I missed that I couldn’t keep up when they were happening, so I guessed.

  7. I got 9 out of 10. There is nothing really good to watch here, so I usually am watching the weather channel all the time.

  8. I got 5/10 right. I also started out strong. As usual I second guess myself, but I didn’t paid enough attention though.

  9. Got a 6 but live in Ohio so none of these events really had a direct impact on us. Some were pure guesses too, like how many trillions of gallons of water fell shew.

  10. Well you are right, I need to watch the Weather Channel more. My wife said that I should be a storm chaser.

  11. I got 8 out of 10 right. I must admit that I’ve been somewhat of a weather geek since I was a kid.

    1. I did too. I didn’t pay attention to winter storms because they never give me issues. Neither do hurricanes or tornadoes. The air quality is bad because of the wildfires, but other than that, I’m not affected.

    2. Me too: only the questions about Barrow, Punxsutawney Phil, and September’s hurricane activity ( questions 2, 5, and 9 respectively )
