    Another one! Oh my! Whatever shall we do?

    Seriously, this is NORMAL for a hurricane cycle. We’ve been so behind the count the last 10 years and people have gotten complacent. My own personal recollections of the 90s and early 2000’s shows that this kind of activity is the norm rather than the exception.

    Still, keep an eye on your tracking charts and get ready to batten down the hatches. Hoping Irma turns out to sea.

      Only 142 months since the last one. The Global Warming hoaxers would have us believe this is happening 3 times a year since 1900.

        Harvey counts. “142 months” is juuuuuust a little off.

          Give him a break, Confused. Maybe he meant it’s been 142 months since a hurricane made landfall in Florida.

          Oh. Wait. Hurricane Hermine made landfall near Big Bend FL on Sept 1, 2016.

          12 is still not really close to 142, but it’s closer than 1 week :)

            Well, Hermine was sure a big one, wasn’t it. The one I referred to was the giant Katrina in the gulf, not some little whimper in Florida.
