We're rapidly approaching that time of year. Looks like we may be in for a bumpy ride.

just like my Edward Jones app, im not opening this until Nov 1.

im pulling a 'gmr lenten sabbatical"


see yall in November. lol


FYI- the insurance market in SE LA is upside down. If we get another storm this year, all bets are off. We are currently seeing rates DOUBLE that of last year for HIGHER deductibles for those LUCKY enough to have a carrier offering Wind/Hail coverage.

If you arent, the ONLY other avenue is thru La Citizens Fair Plan whose rates are even more.

Such a mess.

I know many people on the forum visit the beaches of the Gulf Coast. We had a boy get dragged out of his father's grasp in the high surf this past weekend. Still hasn't been found. Seems like every year, someone's child is killed swimming when we have high surf/rip tide warnings from storms. Please stay out of the water when you see the double red flags.

Some of the names this year... Fiona and Gaston (Sound cajun to me), Hermine (feel like it needs an O), Shary (late season could be Scary), Tobias (likely wearing Jorts), Virginie (e?? hope it's a typo)...

I'll start following more closely in the near future. The gulf is always primed for hurricanes,but other factors come
into play. SAL,ULL"s over the atlantic and carribean. We'll see how these play out

There is still so many blue tarps on roofs around my area. We could really use a year without storm drama. I don't wish storms on anyone but please miss us this year.

“predicting above-average hurricane activity this year — which would make it the seventh consecutive above-average hurricane season”

What’s a “normal” season, and when does that baseline change?

I found this on Wikipedia, I don’t know if it’s where these “normal” numbers come from though.

”On average, 10.1 named storms occur each season, with an average of 5.9 becoming hurricanes and 2.5 becoming major hurricanes (Category 3 or greater).”

Keep in mind all it takes is one to make it a bad year for some areas . Hurricane Andrew is a great example. It
was the first named storm of the 92 season and didn't form until August 16th. 1969 also had below average activity. It
still produced Camille . I'll take memories of Camille to my grave. I was watching cartoons and my mom says we
have to leave now. I asked her why. She said bad weather will becoming here soon. We walked across the street to
the local elementary school. My 7 year old mind still didn't understand. Later that evening the venetian blinds started
floating toward the ceiling and then slammed back down. The roof was torn off down the hall and you could hear screams. Those people evacuated to other rooms including ours. It's an experience I never want to live through again.
