    Contrary to the Doomsayers who predicted the descent of a phalanx of Katrina-style "H-Bombs" on the shores of America, not a single one sent wind nor wave across the shores this year...

    Could it be an indication of our inability to make such sweeping statements as were uttered solemnly as last storm season dragged on beyond the generally accepted terminus, claiming that we were in for an extended period of wham-bammy slam jobs, with any degree of accuracy ?

    Was it merely a "blip", brought about by that capricious little bastard El NiƱo, whose balmy blats some "blame" for the deluge not manifesting ?

    Whatever can this mean...?

    Funny thing that
    but china and surrounds got it

    >> Supertyphoon Durian, which slammed into the Philippines last night packing 249 kilometer an hour (155 mile an hour) winds, left at least 146 people dead in Albay province in Luzon. An official said outside help is needed.
    The storm, the ninth to make landfall this year in the Philippines, >>>>

    Maybe your turn again next year.

    The predictions were based on long term trends, which look to continue. It would be interesting to find out what conditions mitigated the storms this year.

    we americans can expect a very hot summer.
    i predict there will be several long standing records to be broken.

    we've had mild summers since 2001, the last 5 years. the preceding 15 were some of the hottest in US history.
