Default Hurricane Season Is Coming !

All of you remember the past two years ! Many storms hit us.
Katrina was the most destructive storm we have ever suffered.
A catergory V storm recently hit the northeast coast of Australia. That one was stronger than Katrina.
This is very scary folks. The forecasters are predicting another active seaon and they are predicting a major hurricane will hit the east coast of the US sometime in the next five years.
We are in some kind of weird weather cycle and it does not look good.

Regards,
Ben

Here in Boston, we have had some bad storms over the years.The last bad one, Gloria, was in the mid 80's when I watched with horror as the earth around this giant pine tree heaved, up and down,and finally fell, not too far from my bedroom window. From what they said, if it hits us this year, as it might, it could very well be the big one

After going thru 3+ the last 2 years, we in Florida take these warnings very seriously. Better to be prepared that not be. I agree the weather has been really going crazy and its only supposed to get worse before it gets better. Last year after going thru the year before twin hurricanes, DH agreed time to install hurricane shutters. We are ready, except for my chocolate which I wait till the end to get because I eat it before its needed!

Default Hurricane season is coming

We're from New England and I remember one in '54. I was 12 and we were at the lake in Augusta, Maine. My gf and I walked up a dirt road and hid in the loft of an old barn. The other one was Hurricane Bob (I think it was '90). We were in a motel at Cape Cod and we had two 16 year olds with us. We hurriedly packed up and headed for the Bourne Bridge. Winds had reached 75 miles an hour and they closed the bridge five minutes after we got over. Not fun being chased 110 miles while towing a boat. (The teenagers, of course, slept all the way.)

I dont know how the people in Coastal areas take it year after year... here in Texas we COULD get a tornado... but we're certainly not guaranteed several every year. I would love to live in Florida, but I dont know that I could stand it ! I would be a basket csae for all of Hurricane Season.... heres hoping its a quiet season for you all this year... I KNOW you all deserve a rest !
