Where are the Hurricanes

This year Democrats were counting on two things: high gas prices and more hurricanes. Unfortunately things haven't worked out for them. Current the price per gallon in the twin cities is as low as $2.07 per gallon. If gas falls below $2.00 Democrats will cry foul. The latest line is that Bush is manipulating the price for the fall election... Bush is a genius!

Democrats are also suffering from the lack of hurricanes . Last year they told us that we were in for a future of devestating hurricanes and that the reason for this onslaught was us humans driving our SUVs (and the democrats accuse Republicans of fear mongering!) Maybe there still will be more hurricanes, however, so far this year, that prediction has been a bust. According to the NOAA, we were supposed to have 13-16 named storms, 8-10 hurricanes and 4-6 major hurricanes. for 2006. In 2005, there were 28 named storms, 15 hurricanes and 7 major hurricanes.

So far this year there have been a total of 8 storms and only 4 have been hurricanes. In prior years it appears that at least 3/4s of the storms occurred prior to Oct 1. If the current rate holds, there will be a total of 10-11 named storms for 2006 and only 5-6 hurricanes. Thus, it looks as though the amont of hurricanes may be much less than previously thought.

No word yet if Bush and his buddies are responsible for the reduced hurricanes.

Don't be so hasty, S'aurus. The Democrats have a doozy of a hurricane up their sleeve as an October Surprise. Yes, just as Bush is able to manipulate gas prices, the Democratic National Committee plays maestro to the southern weather.
