Official 2005 Hurricane season is almost upon us. This years predictions from US National Weather Centre. Easy tracking showing the first hurricane of this season is already up and running and a Caribbean site with observers sending in local reports; Be sure to check some of the island reports 2004.

They've got blank tracking charts so you can follow along at home. Which is grim, but cool. Plays to the trainspotters and the box score obsessive crowd.

I sure do hope New Orleans is spared this year*. My poor sainted mother is down there and my notion has always been that they have crap for working evacuation plans.

Looks like a 70% chance of an "above normal season" in the Atlantic/Caribbean. Heavy Weather, indeed.


*I hope everywhere is spared, but you know...

Is now the time to start the debate between living in Hurricane Alley or Earthquake Valley?

I hope this season is gentler than last season.

My home is just now close to finished being repaired from the last storm. They just _started_ working on my coworker's home yesterday.

Yea, *fingers crossed*

...NOAA had some solid numbers last year......to bad mother nature beat'em.

I think that it's going to be an interesting year. I actually had power and internet access while Jeane rumbled by.

J-Ville has been mighty lucky......and I'm wondering when our luck is gonna run out.
