I joined the blog probably in the worst time ever..The first storm that occured without me as a lurker was Tropical Storm Don. And everyone knows how terrible of a storm it was.
I remember in years such as 2008 when we'd occasionally get a weak storm like Nana. But basically none of the storms were disorganized in that year. Same with others like 2004 and 2007 even. Here, I'm revisiting past pain in the butt storms and why they were so awful.

Tropical Storm Alberto in 2006 hit Taylor County, where my aunt now lives with 45 mph winds and caused some coastal flooding.
A Debby-Andrea type thing happened in 2006 and 2007 with Alberto and Barry. 2 June storms, heavily sheared to the eastern side, struck almost the same place in Florida.
Barry was so disorganized, that this photo is JUST after landfall..
Fay, the iconic storm that hit Florida 4 t...

Gordon in 2000 made landfall just NW of Cedar Key which is 15 miles from me. I was only 1 year old so I dont really remember it that well..lol
Edouard in 2002 was kind of a no show at landfall on the east coast of Florida, just some rain. It exited into the Gulf at Crystal River, 45 miles away.
2004 brought a few storms...Bonnie..
Frances passed just off the coast on her way...

The 2014 hurricane season officially starts in a few hours, so I figure that I'd better give my preseason predictions now while I have a chance.
There is no telling what a season will bring. We can only make predictions with what we have. But we can't determine the exact future of nature's occurrences. Based on what we know about the El Nino situation during this season, I believe we'll see 10 Storms, 4 hurricanes, and 1 major. The bes...

Well even though the pre-season wasn't active like last year's, that doesn't mean that the season won't be active. If you don't believe me, look at 2005. I'm thinking around 15 TS, 7 HU, and 3 MH this year.
TS Andrea came ashore just north of Cedar Key, FL Thursday. I was there during landfall. When I got there, the wind was sustained at about 25 mph. There were some white cap waves and the only bridge to and from the island was only about 4...
