Saying Goodbye (and Good Riddance) to Hurricane Season

MSNBC has an interesting story on the 2005 Atlantic Hurricane Season - Historic hurricane season end. . .sort of

It has certainly been a bumpy ride this year. Thankfully we weren't really affected here in Troy, but it has been a memorable, and nerve racking year.
It has seen the most storms on record, beating the previous record of 21 named storms set in 1933. It has scored the most hurricanes at 13, beating the previous record of 12 set in 1969.

It has also seen the most Category 5 hurricanes, the top-ranked storms on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale of hurricane activity.

With TS Epsilon still brewing in the Atlantic (and not expected to make landfall), we can only hope that the season ends here. Let's hope next year is better, but I'm not holding my breath.
