I feel you... only I have the opposite thing happen. I have lived on the Gulf Coast for the majority of my life and I have yet to experience so much as a category 1 (not that it is a problem). I lived in Louisiana for the early years of my life and all the hurricanes missed me, they hit Texas and Florida instead, when my folks moved to Houston the hurricanes did not hit here they hit in Louisiana and Florida. Then I moved to Nacogodoches and then to Dallas and as soon as I left hurricanes started rolling in those places I had just left. I know it is BS but it is getting to be a bit absurd. Oh I am back in Houston for this hurricane season so we shall see how this works out.
