Anyone who lives in the state of Florida knows that hurricane season begins on June 1st and does not end until November 30th. Although no one wants to have to deal with a major hurricane, the hope, instead, is that we will have a number of tropical storms with limited wind and lots of rain. When those kinds of storms occur, we breathe a sigh of relief. However, there is an exciting undercurrent during hurricane season when we are watching low pressure areas come off the coast of Africa or suspicious areas in the Gulf of Mexico. Although meteorologists make their tracking predictions regarding the wind and the rain, frequently they are mistaken. To me, hurricane season provides excitement for following the process of a storm, hoping that it won’t come our way while, at the same time, hoping it will come close enough to bring needed rain without damaging anything or anyone. Despite the negative aspects of the hurricane season, tropical storms serve a purpose in our environment, and they frequently have a mind of their own.
