This is on Drudge, so I figure that a lot of people will actually notice what we have noticed; we haven't had a tropical storm hit our coast (I'm near Mexico Beach) in a few years. I hope the media actually reports this.

Something not happening isn't news.

Long time Floridians remember that until 2004 some areas went years with no hurricanes. In Jupiter, there was a 44 year stretch where no hurricanes directly hit the area. During that time the outer banks of NC got hit by numerous hurricanes. Every storm seemed to bypass the east coast of FL and head directly up to NC.

Then in Jupiter we got pounded by several within 18 months.

You have to be prepared and choose a CBS house with a roof built to withstand very high winds. But parts of Florida may go decades without hurricanes.

I don't suppose insurance will go down. I know the answer to that one!

Among all the predictions of global warming causing an increase in larger, more violent hurricanes, there is one thought that the warming may eventually reduce the number of TCs due to an increase in wind shear.

Shear in the Caribbean and around FL seems to be the predominant reason for our lack of activity these past 2 years. Let's hope it continues.

That's a very timely observation. Shear's almost definitely going to prevent Noel from developing into anything more than a 60-mph tropical storm as it approaches South Florida; the hostile environment will make it virtually impossible for this storm to strengthen once it reaches the central Bahamas. Wednesday and Thursday still won't be very pleasant here, but I'll certainly take it over Wilma.
