For me, summer is great, except for one thing -- it marks the onset of hurricane season. I'm a little nervous because the first tropical storm was already announced by the National Hurricane Center at the end of May, BEFORE hurricane season started June 1.
My home got hit by Ike last year, and Rita barely missed it. I get news announcements from the National Hurricane Center emailed to me all season long, so I can know way in advance if I need to start preparation to evacuate.
In the meantime, I'll just keep crankin out those crazy face mugs. Might as well be happy til a storm hits!
DId you see where there is a trend starting now, that tropical storms and hurricanes are starting to develope closer to our coasts, rather than over by Africa now? Not sure if it's a trend or an anomaly. But the worry is, less warning.
I know, nothig like some comforting words, right?
I hope you get through the season with out a scratch.
that is for damn sure! I check the 5 day track from the second they enter the Gulf. From that time on, I know that a potential evaucation is brewing. We've had to evacuate two out of the past 3 years. I'm really hoping this hurricane season lets us stay home.
