We've had it pretty easy since Katrina and Rita. 2004-2005 were terrible years. With the news today:
that we already have a named storm before the season even starts (okay, it starts tomorrow), I get the feeling that we're in for a long Summer. My gut also tells me to sell insurance and offshore-Gulf-of-Mexico oil stocks before the fourth of July. I'm not claiming to be (in)auspicious, but a betting man knows when his luck's run out.
We've got our 72-hour kits loaded into backpacks and ready to take with us should we have a hurricane here. You laugh, but we've seen what they can do....first hand.
