Although a front-page headline in this newspaper the other day, “Not-So-Mean Season,” indicated hurricane season 2009 has been mild, please pay attention.
Hurricane season is not over yet.
It lasts until the end of November.
What’s ahead is what counts.
October isn’t even over yet, and you may remember when Hurricane Wilma came to call in 2005. The fact that October is more associated with football and Halloween didn’t stop nature’s powerful Category 3 visit on Oct. 24.
A not-so-mean season? Let’s hope that winds up being the case when the season is really over.
In the meantime, please keep those household hurricane readiness plans within reach.
