Hurricane Season

We have been incredibly lucky this year. With the coolish spring, the potential for hurricanes went down significantly. A couple of years ago, we had over twenty named storms. Up until a couple of days ago, we had none.

That is all changed. Ana, Bill and Claudette have sprang up. Ana and Claudette are tropical depressions. It looks like Bill will turn into a hurricane. Fingers crossed.

I arrived from Canada yesterday and went for my swim at Cabbage Beach. Instantly one could tell that tropical storms on the ocean were about. The waves weren't exactly high, but the surface of the ocean was disturbed and roily and lots of seaweed had blown in. Here's hoping that Bill blows by all of us.
