Don't Let The Doorknob Hit You In The Ass On The Way Out, 2008 Hurricane Season
As of 12:01 a.m. today, the 2008 hurricane season is over. That doesn't mean there won't be any more hurricanes, it just means when they occur we'll be told what a surprise they are.
As a practical matter, of course, Texas is largely free of hurricanes once you get into late September.
But now we're really out of harm's way. Unless God wants to really mess with us.
Experts say 2008 was a ball-breaker in many ways.
Six hurricanes in a row hit the US -- can you name them? Personally, we don't much care beyond Ike.
Those who were hard-hit by Ike will be dealing with the damage for a long time; for the rest of us, the end of hurricane season means the beginning of that time of year when the rest of the country actually envies us our weather.
Until June 1.
