I Don't Miss Hurricanes
Satellite showing Hurricane Rina (courtesy CNN) updated Oct 25 7:26 am.
It's that time of year again. August to October are the worst times for Gulf hurricanes. It's really hard to predict where a hurricane will go once it has passed Cuba and Cancun (which act a bit like a ball going through a pinball machine which sets the hurricane's direction in the Gulf). The Gulf of Mexico is still warm and a hurricane will strengthen in the open water of the Gulf.
Hurricane Rina is currently a Category 2 hurricane with sustained windspeeds of 100 mph. Definitely a concern once it enters the Gulf of Mexico.
I don't miss hurricanes.
