Here we go again!

June 1st and the start of a new hurricane season.  This is my 9th year of blogging mostly about how we are affected here in Florida and specifically the Tampa Bay Area.  

Fortunately for us in Florida ..and I really mean that....the majority of my posts from the past 7 years have been about hurricanes hitting in other parts of the U.S., Florida preparations, and insurance rates going up.   Well , none of us care for the latter, but I'd rather post about that than storms hitting locally.  

I do feel for everyone in the Northeast, Midwest, and Gulfcoast states that have taken the brunt of Mother Nature over this time period. Included in this should also be those impacted by the devastating tornadoes that hit Oklahoma last month.  

So as another predicted active hurricane season starts up, we have to shake off our complacency, do our preparations, ask our weather forecasters to balance their enthusiasm when a storm forms and begins to set a path.   It's important to stay informed and not let down our guard, and I hope that if a storm does come our way, that everyone involved and potentially affected, does the right thing for themselves, their families, and their community.
