I’ve kinda missed hurricane blogging–even though you readers seem to enjoy fights over “intelligent design” much more. In any case, here are hurricanes Gordon and Helene, drifting harmlessly out to sea (though Helene might still have a few surprises in store). In general, it’s been that kind of year, folks. All the really dramatic hurricane action has been in the Pacific. At this point, it’s possible that the U.S. may get an entire year-long reprieve from major hurricane threats; that Ernesto will wind up being our worst 2006 landfalling storm. That certainly would be nice.

6504 20th Ave NE
Seattle, WA 98155
