No Hurricanes, No Tropical Storms, Just Depression

Yea, we should be happy that it appears we'll not have to evacuate for a hurricane this season.  Then why do we feel such DEPRESSION?   Can you say Da Saints Defeat?  Wow!  Who would have thunk 0 & 2?  But lest we forget, it is more important how you finish strong.  Let's just trust our guys will turn it around next week.

As we reach the middle of September, computer models are showing no storms threatening the Gulf for the next 10-14 days.  I have mentioned in the past that once into October, our chances for a major hurricane is near zero. Only in 1893 have we had a major hurricane cross the Louisiana coast and that happened during the first week.   I am feeling more and more confident that we will not have to worry about evacuation during this storm season.   Can we still see a late season storm?  Absolutely, but history tells us those storms are far weaker (Juan 1985) than the Brutes of August & September, plus stronger westerly steering currents start to bring down fronts from the north.  I can hear "The Fat Lady" rehearsing in the back room, but it's still awhile before she steps on stage.  Stay tuned!
