hooray hurricane season

Sarcastic much.

Well, another season of what I like to call “stress and duck” season (okay, I’ve never really called it that) starts today. Hurricane Season. Man, I dislike it much.

2005 was horrible for the Gulf.

2004 was horrible for Central Florida.

They say that this year will be similar, but no one knows for whom.

Here’s the list of names of whom I’d like to not meet this year:

  • Alberto
  • Beryl
  • Chris
  • Debby
  • Ernesto
  • Florence
  • Gordon
  • Helene
  • Isaac
  • Joyce
  • Kirk
  • Leslie
  • Michael
  • Nadine
  • Oscar
  • Patty
  • Rafael
  • Sandy
  • Tony
  • Valerie
  • William

I’ve gone through and updated some of the old posts on this blog into the hurricane category. When I left blogspot and imported all the posts into WordPress, they all automatically went into the “whatever” category. You can do a search for “hurricane” on this blog and find more. But if you go through some of the 2004 Hurricane Retrospectives, you’ll jump out to the old blog posts (if you click through the Hurricane Charlie posts, you’ll see some of my first blog posts ever). I just haven’t gone that far back in retrofitting all the categories.

I’ve also uploaded several hurricane photos.

Some of the best hurricane resources I will tag in del.icio.us so stay tuned to that page.

Here’s to a new season.

  • Patty? Hurricane Patty? I just don’t like that name and don’t like people calling me that. I think it’s because of a girl I knew in 8th grade named Patty. She was nice but never showered, always smelled. I guess it could be a male name too. Nope, just checked, Hurricane Patty will be a female. Bummer.

  • They have already named them? LOL! Or maybe these are previous foes?
    I feel awful everytime I hear about a hurricane passing through in the US, and see all the folk “battening up the hatches”.
    On the other hand, tornadoes I find fascinating.
    If I lived in the States and had no small children, I reckon I’d go on a tornado hunting tour. Not too close but close enough to see one.
    A bit morbid I know!

    If I had more guts, i’d probably do some tornado chasing too! Don’t tell Patricia.

  • I already know.
    You kind of went hurricane chasing while Charlie was leaving 2 years ago? Remember when the neighbor came over while it was still super windy and the both of you went walking about the neighborhood?

    Oh yeah! It was fun. But I had boots on. He was barefooted! No lights, no rain, strong flashlights, and debris everywhere! Adventure.

  • LOL!
