Summer storm season

It's summer, which means hot humid weather, lazy days trying to stay cool and plenty of sunshine. Summer also means it's hurricane season. So, while I'm out enjoying the summer weather and hanging out at the beach, I'm also keeping an eye on the weather (along with everyone else). Fortunately with hurricanes you always get a lot of advance notice, so there's plenty of time to prepare.

I've been pretty lucky so far in the 4 years I've been here. The closest I've come to encuontering a hurricane was Hurricane Floyd in 1999. That one caused some major traffic snarls when the decision was made to call for an evacuation. Luckily I was already headed out of town anyway, so I was already on the road and missed all the traffic jams.
