Mega-storm packing 150 mph winds and 50-foot waves set to pummel West Coast

It looks as though you were just quoting the National Weather Service, Kevin, when you used the words “an historical storm… one that would long be remembered”, so I guess I should be ticked off with them ☺ I see this mistake repeated in periodicals as august as The London Times, so you (or most likely the National Weather Service) are in good company… “historical” means occurring in history. “Historic“ means important or significant in history.
