So you're saying that it may or may not be a bad time to invest in insurance companies.

Wait... that ship has sailed, and parts of several states have already been wiped out.

Sell Moritmer, SELL!

The east coast had been REALLY FARKING LUCKY from 2000-2011; the major storms went into the Gulf.  Between Floyd and Sandy, the only two that I can remember off the top of my head were Isobel (2003) and Irene (2011).  We're past due, but have we done anything about the over-development of the Outer Banks?  Noooooope.

Here in Texas we could use some light ones just for the rain. It has been so damned dry...

My favourite part about NOAA and their sh*t ass predictions. They're like a broken clock. Right 50% of the time.

Global warming huh? I woke up at 6:15 a.m. this morning to be greeted by a snow storm outside my bedroom window. May 24th, and it's snowing in southern Ontario.

I still remember after Katrina how some weather agencies (I think NOAA may have been one) of them said that every hurricane season after Katrina will get worse the end is nigh etc. I think the only problem people have in hurricane regions is a lack of prep for the next big storm. People are very short sighted.

A broken clock is right twice a day, not half the time.
Be that as it may, last year's el derecho did more damage here and effected us mor profoundly than any hurricane ever has, and it emerged one afternoon, out of the blue (actually Ohio, but I won't quibble).
