Historic Hurricane Season

2005 has captured the record from 1931 as the busiest hurricane season in recorded history. Tropical Storm Alpha has emerged as the twenty-second named storm of the year. Meanwhile, Hurricane Wilma is moving off the Yucatan Peninsula back over water and is beginning it's lumbering trek towards Florida. It's strength has been reduced to Category 2 but the reduction came at the expense of the resort towns of Cozumel and Cancun. That now brings the number of destroyed regions that I've visited in the last year up to four. But like my dad said last night, "There really isn't any part of the Gulf Coast that hasn't been hit this year." Indeed.
