HELLO HANNA

Folks, it's going to be a rough and bumpy ride for the next 2 months so sit back and buckle those seat belts.

If any of you don't have your hurricane plans up to date..... Get it done now.

There is a good possibility of 3 named storms at the same time within the next week.

Unfortunately I do think a storm will also hit the U.S. east coast this season........
