Another season closing, start next year's prep now.

Well, as of today, there are 2 days left in the 2012 season - and it ends with 19 named storms.

We made it to Tony this year.

Looks like (unless they modify the list), we went 19/9/1 - looks like Michael was the only "major".

So we keep a record going - we're now to 2601 since a "major" hit the U.S. mainland (a storm with winds equal to or greater than 111mph).

That's unprecedented. Or, just plain dumb luck.

Sure, they'll be talking about Sandy for years (it's gonna take years to get everything back into some semblance of order).

There are still places in Mississippi that don't have anything built back.

But as bad as Sandy was, it wasn't like Camille. Or Elena. Or Katrina.

Some will try to blame Sandy on a CO2 level of .00039103 (391.03 parts per MILLION) - which, according to some, is about .00004103 above the upper safe level for humanity.

Then again, they blame every single weather event since the dawn of time on CO2, so I guess I can thank the world's biggest emitters (China and India) for the 7 straight seasons I haven't had to run.

But I'll still pack. I'll still prepare. But I won't spend time on needless panic - until the next major barrels down on us.
