I am not liking the sound of that. Have a fall cruise booked.

Well, for those who worry about such things, relax--you have 5 more days until official hurricane season starts--enjoy.

"Frankly, my dear..."

Seriously, I refuse to take a cruise going to any destination where hurricanes are likely to be an issue. The time from mid-May through mid-September is the humid season in the northern tropics, when the air is typically so thick that you need a machette to hack your way through it. When it comes to miserable heat, there's nothing like a "95/95" day -- 95 Deg. F and 95% humidity. The odds of a hurricane disrupting a cruise may be less than 10%, but the odds of heat and humidity making it horridly miserable are nearly 100%. Thus, at that time of year, I'm going someplace more pleasant -- and not to the Mediterranean, which also has "95/95" weather at that time of year. Alaska, Canada/New England, and Northern Europe are great choices for the June-September time frame, and Bermuda might be okay.

And by the end of October and in November, the probability of hurricanes wanes pretty quickly.

Norm.

We are now in mid august and it has been quiet so far. I think tha we are likely to have few if any hurricanes this season.
