Hurricane History

Some really cool stuff on the history of hurricanes in the Americas going back to 1492, plus this table categorizing hurricane landfalls by state/region, not to mention the cataloging of the deadliest, costliest and most intense hurricanes in the US. Zoinks.

This doesn't even count the Columbus Day Storm which hit the Pacific Northwest in the early 1960's and had sustained winds over 170 MPH, since it was a typhoon, not a hurricane.

And, I don't what this to be thought of as threatening, but my wife has 3 bags (as in yes sir, yes sir) full of llama wool that she's learning to dye, card, and spin...oh and knit.

Soft stuff...makes me want to run my fingers through your llama hair!

Work hard, boys. Love along won't pay your bills.
