The hurricane drought is over! A Limerick.

Forty three hundred twenty four days

since big hurricane entered our bays.

A new record for calm

in the hurricane realm.

We’ll soon enter a new cooling phase.

The last major hurricane hitting the mainland U.S. was Wilma, Oct.2005.

It was much bigger as a hurricane than today’s Harvey, but Harvey is unique since it will get stuck in nearly the same place for six days, causing unprecedented rains.

—This is not climate change, it is two blocking highs that prevents Harvey to go up the East Coast and rain out in the Northern Atlantic.

This means an earlier winter in the Arctic!
