The end of another storm season

Today is the last day of the 2006 hurricane season, and it has thankfully been a good deal calmer than last year. Out of a forecast of 12-15 named storms, this year we ended up with 9 named storms (4 tropical storms and 5 hurricanes).

I'm glad this year was a bit of a non-event storm wise. It was a good break from last year's hectic season. Hopefully next year will be more of the same. 6 months to relax a bit before the 2007 season starts up.
