Their "stats" for the last two seasons have been pretty bad but the insurance industry has been pretty happy.

Speaking of giving thanks, with the end of November comes the end of what has turned out to be another milder-than-usual hurricane season.

Hurricane experts, plugging this updated data into their sophisticated computer models, announce that there is a high statistical probability that next month will be April.

Having gone through tropical storm Barry while crossing Florida Bay in the spring and then through hurricane Noel while in Stuart in the fall, it has been a very active year from my perspective.
