The predictions for the 2015 Hurricane season are for a relatively quiet season, but Ironically the first storm of the season occurred before the official beginning.
Upon my recent arrival in Florida it was obvious that hurricane season has begun. The sunshine State was anything but sunny. At first it was gray and dreary then we had monsoon type of rain. Or I guess you could say hurricane strength rain. The powerful wind tore out the screens on the lanai.
The hurricane season is upon us and we have already had the second named storm in the Atlantic. While having dinner at a restaurant the power went out due to the strong wind; and then while driving home from a long weekend trip in Pennsylvania I got acquainted with Tropical Storm Bill. My home and eastern Pennsylvania are not in the normal hurricane zones but I am already tired of them!
As with all of the other recent natural disasters everyone should make sure that they have their emergency preparedness kit available and ready to use. It sure seems we are going to need them this year.
