I hate hurricane season, which is just another reason to dislike this area-- being by the ocean and all. So I do not greet the news that this season is forecasted to be an especially active one very kindly.
Last year I was driving to the Blackpot festival in Louisiana and heard on the news that this massive storm was heading to the coast. There had been zero mention of it so it was surprise. I had even left our attic windows open. I had some big fears of coming back to a lot of problems but the storm (Sandy) instead decided to destroy the NE and leave this stepped on area alone. Thankfully.
