Hurricane Season Ends...

Friday is the close of the 2012 Hurricane Season, one that will "officially" go down in the top 5 of most active seasons.  However, there were 4-6 storms that lasted less than 2 days and affected no one.  Take those away from the total and it was really about an average season.  We'll remember 2 storms (Debbie & Issac) that were in the Gulf and everyone will remember Sandy that battered New Jersey & New York.   Looking ahead to next season and I'm reading that the waters of the Tropical Atlantic are likely to again be above normal so expect the "experts" to come out with high (13-17) numbers for 2013. Personally, I'm glad it's over since we don't have to evacuate for snow or freezes.  Bring on Winter !

In the short term, there are no signs of real cold air coming during the next 10-14 days.  In fact, for the next 5 days highs will top 70 and perhaps even approach 80.  Our main weather issue will be daily morning fog problems.  I'll be working in the yard this weekend getting ready for the real chill of Dec-Feb.
