And Now for Number Five

The first four hurricanes — Bonnie (technically a tropical storm, but still), Charley, Frances, and Ivan — weren’t enough. Now we have to contend with Jeanne. And, oh yeah, the remnants of Ivan that came back through here after making a 1200-mile loop through Washington, D.C.

Ugh. Time to evac again. Looks like Pensacola this time. I’ll keep you posted. And once again, over to Lee Bennett for your complete hurricane coverage. :)

LOL - Thanks, I think. Hah.

For what it’s worth, and discounting Bonnie for the moment, the last time a single state was hit with four hurricanes in the same season was in 1886 and Texas was the victim.

Jeb is right. Floridians are truly getting sick of this and, says he, the governor is, too!

This year’s previous storms have already cost billions of dollars and at least 70 lives. If Jeanne stays strong and her eye grazes exactly along the east coast as some models have suggested, the aftermath could be as bad as all Florida’s prior storms this season, combined.

Oh, and since you _are_ including Bonnie in your count, I suddenly have the urge to play a little bit of Lou Bega!!!
