Yesterday was the start of this year's 🌀 season, so I felt a thread should be opened.

Unfortunately 🥺

It's been an unusually cool winter and spring here in Houston. I haven't check the water temperature of the Gulf of Mexico, but I'm hoping it is cooler than normal, too. That should mean fewer/weaker hurricanes, right?
Regardless, preps have been checked and we're good to go.

I believe NOAA predicts a more active than normal hurricane season this year. :|

I'm trying to remember any year in the last two decades I've been in Houston when they didn't warn of an unusually active hurricane season. Regardless of their predictions, I still plan for a class 4 to hit our house every year.

If your house gets hit by a Class 4 every year you might want to consider moving, just sayin' ...
