I hope so ... that means less powerful storms and less landfalls.

I was joking about Seattle being balmy too. Actually it's arid and desert like.
Well I certainly don't wish it on anyone (plus, I'm from there, and I've got plenty of friends and family from the area, why would I want that?). As Mwah said, it was a statistical comment. And I agree, we're probably due a volcano or earthquake out here. Anyway, I hope no one has to go through a Katrina (or Andrew, or Camille, etc.) again, but inevitably it will happen somewhere.
