    Thumbs up 2006 - The Quietest Hurricane Year in a Decade

    The quietest hurricane year in a decade officially ends in three weeks, but meteorologists and disaster managers on the Gulf and Florida coasts agree that the season is already over.
    "We dodged a bullet this year," says meteorologist Gerry Bell of the National Weather Service's Climate Prediction Center. "If there was ever a time that we needed a break, we got one."

    After nine Atlantic storms that mostly stayed out to sea, there hasn't been another since Hurricane Isaac in late September.

    The month of November, last of the season's six months, is also its lightest, averaging less than one storm every two years since the 1850s. Forecasters see little likelihood of another storm this year.

    Thats because we already got them all last year. Thank heavens this year was so much milder.
    I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for pretending to be someone I'm not.

    Amen, thank you God for the break! Florida and the Gulf really needed it.

    Ummm, no. I think if there was ever a time that we needed a break, it was LAST year. :-)

    I don't know, I never knew I needed a hurricane brake until Katrina came through. i never paid attention to natural disasters until I was affected by Katrina. I am selfish I guess.

    Ya gotta just keep on about the hurricanes don't ya - I was wondering what you were doing with all your free time NOT having to report hurricane activity!

    So often times it happens that we live our life in chains, and we never even know we have the key. ...Eagles, "Already Gone"

    No. If you're selfish, that means I am too. And I'm not. So you're not. :-)

    It really is amazing how dramatically different things were this year. I would love it if this was a new, longtime trend, but I doubt it.

    [sarcasm: on] That is because George Bush wanted the Repulicans to do better and since he's controlling the weather, decided to make it light. Doesn't he get any credit for the light season?

    Maybe we should ask Al Gore if there was some global cooling that went into effect that helped us out this year.

    Ok I know keep it in the Political Pavillion but the whole global warming causes hurricanes thing just had to come into play with me here.

    I AM THANKFUL FOR THE LIGHT HURRICANE SEASON :-)
