Well blow me down

I hate to say it but bring it on.

We need the rain.


More hurricanes than usual seen blowing in
Conditions are ripe for a rough season.

Crunching obscure meteorological data from around the globe, a pair of forecasters 932 miles from the nearest beach predict nine hurricanes — five of them major — and seven more “named” tropical storms — some likely hitting Texas — this season.

That's an increase from the annual average of six hurricanes and 10 named storms.

The Gulf Coast and the Eastern Seaboard can expect an “above average” summer of cyclonic weather, according to the latest report from Colorado State University's Tropical Meteorology Project.
